  1. Hey @Rebecca001, you just made me discover that my name was a TV show I'm French, from France, living in France! Some people need more explaining than others, that's for sure… But it does make sense in a way, for someone that never had any problem with food, a program like Whole30 can seem far-fetched. It's a lot harder to understand the solution when you can't relate to the problem. But I found that, with enough explaining, people eventually understand (and the ones that don't usually aren't the type of people I want to interact with anyway...)
  2. It's probably too late, and the birthday is long past, but I'll give my advice for anyone passing by! One simple answer: always bring food with you. ALWAYS It will only be a social barrier if you see it as one. If you're open and freely speaking about it, people really don't mind (at least in my experience). Just don't separate yourself from the group, don't make yourself an outcast just because you don't eat like other people. Join the groups, and if people give you a weird look, start explaining. Tell them that you just started this really cool program to change your eating habits (avoid the word diet, people don't like that word). Tell them how healthy it is, and how it makes you feel good, etc... I actually find it to be a good icebreaker in some cases. ――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――― Thought, it might be a good idea to warn the host before coming that you will bring your own food. Usually, I send a message like Make it playful, don't make a big deal out of it, and people will take it lighty. I know that it was really weird for me as well in the beggining, but the more you do it, the better it feels! I hope this will help someone. If you follow the advice, share your experiences
