  1. Finished my Whole60 today. I'll be adding some things back but for the most part my diet will remain the same. I feel good without flour, sugar and dairy. A lot of my symptoms went away, not all of them, but I'm not sure food was the source of those issues. I'll add back hummus and other beans, I might experiment with yogurt and a little cheese to see if I can tolerate some dairy. So I guess that's it. Sixty days - yay! It was a lonely journey. If I go back on the diet, I probably won't be doing the forum. Maybe it was just a quiet time of the year - not sure. But it was discouraging. I f
  2. Hi Brocha! Thank you for posting!! Day 8 - I looked up what was said for Day 8 in my Day by Day book and it talked a lot about food cravings and temptation to cave in to them. Do you notice that at all? I pretty much tracked with what the books say will happen day by day. I looked back at my notes for Days 8 and 9. I was still pretty tired and energy was low. I actually was having cravings for bananas. I forgot about that. I wasn't sleeping either. Waking up. That's when I decided to ditch the coffee. I did it slowly. Quitting set my progress back a bit. But then I recovered and my last week o
  3. I started my Whole30 on May 1, 2021. Finished today, May 30. I've decided to do a Whole60 so it continues... The first two weeks were rocky for me. I tracked with the symptoms given in my Day-to-Day and Whole30 books. At the two-week mark I decided to give up coffee. I had cut back from 4 cups in the morning to 2 cups and then 1 cup. I didn't enjoy it at all after I started the Whole30 and quit using half-and-half and stevia. So it was easy to cut back. Cutting it out completely was another story. I did it slowly but apparently not slowly enough. I had a headache the first day without coffee a
  4. Hi Jennifer! Welcome to the Forum. I'm on Day 10 so I'll be on my last week when you are beginning. I'm considering doing a Whole60 so I might be here longer. Sounds like you've done this before? I did my first Whole30 around 2014 so it's been awhile. A suggestion for looking for partners. Jot down the people who begin on or around your start date so you can track with them through the process. I've been on for over a week now and haven't seen many people introduce themselves. I'm glad you did. Maybe I just haven't figured out the best way to use this forum. It's set up by subject matte
  5. Congratulations IamSue! That's such an accomplishment. I started May 1. I can't say it is flying by yet (Day 9), but I am hoping to feel better soon. Having finished successfully, how are you feeling now?
  6. Awwww. Thank you so much. I really appreciate the best wishes. And the same for you too. It's Day 8 for me. No tiger blood yet, but I do see some improvements!
  7. Hi Katie! You started on May 3? How is it going for you? Are you having any of the side effects talked about in the book? Or is it going pretty smoothly so far? I just started on May 1 so this is Day 5 for me. I hope you are doing OK and that you are making progress in your Whole30! Laurie
  8. Hello FairyLOu and thank you for your kind and insiteful words. It was difficult to deal with mom's death. It's like it happened yesterday. The trips to the ER were awful because she didn't understand and sometimes they wouldn't let us come in with her. We miss her so much. I have a whole new respect for our first responders and ER workers. They work so hard on our behalf. We called them many times. So I'm trying to get my life back and doing a Whole30 is part of that. It definitely helped me last time. I'm glad you are feeling good on Day 2! That's a win in itself. And especially with a
  9. I'm hope this is where I introduce myself. If not, forgive me and maybe someone can move it where it should be. My name is Laurie and I started my Whole30 on May 1, 2021. I'm on Day 4. This is my second Whole30. I did my first several years ago. I was in good shape and had already eliminated many items from my diet before going on my first Whole30 (bread, most sugar, dairy). I was eating lots of vegetables and fruit. So I was the 5% that breezed through it. I felt great on it and stayed on it for months on end. My issues with acid reflux and LPR went away and I was a happy camper. Life happene
