    Melofit got a reaction from izzy in Let's Support Each Other — doing a January Whole30   
    Hi, everyone. Just completed Day 2 and logged on to meet a few others implementing this major change in January. Motivation was to take control of my eating (and wine drinking) after a year or more of deteriorating eating habits. I was surprised how quickly I lost discipline after two years of managing weight so well. Decided I wanted some alternatives to just discipline, so before the weekend I cleaned out and replaced spices and herbs and bought new oils and vinegars. This evening made the Realplans Korean pork chops. That’s a keeper long after Whole30. 
    I have a sense that my decreasing performance in fitness classes and increasing muscle and join aches and pains are directly related to diet.

    I'm T, and I've done several Whole30s in the past. The first one was extremely successful, leading to a few years of eating Whole-30-ish and lots of great health effects; I have spent most of my adult life dealing with chronic illness.
    During Covid I began to slide pretty seriously to a more normal American diet. The health effects haven't been terrible, but I would sure like to feel a bit better. I've also gained several dress sizes.
    Whole30 helped me with fibromyalgia, mold illness, tendonitis/tendinitis, chronic pain, inflammation, and sugar cravings. I really hope I can do it successfully this time. The last couple tries, I failed.

    Hi there. What if a group of us introduced ourselves in this forum topic, and checked back to support each other throughout the month?
    I signed up to do the January 2022 Whole30 on the website. The email from Melissa informs me that this officially starts January 3. I also have a couple of friends in my local town who are going for it.
    How about you? Are you doing a January 3 or a January 1 start date? Have you tried Whole30 before?
    It would be great if you could answer using complete sentences, and without a lot of Internet  or Whole30 abbreviations, which can get confusing...

    Hi all! I'm Katie I started Dec 27the (because at the time I had no plans for new years eve, tho I did end up celebrating last night and am VERY PROUD OF MYSELF for staying committed to this experiment). Yes, I call this an experiment, because I'm really interested to see how my body reacts to different foods and ingredients, etc. 
    I am allergic to dairy, though while I get an anaphylactic reaction, technical allergy skin tests are inconclusive. If those are inconclusive, what about other food sensitivities etc? Can I feel this amazing feeling everyone else describes when they are avoiding inflammatory foods? Or is that the feeling I normally live in? Do any of these foods give me headaches I've never noticed, or bloat, or random other inflammation? 
    And yes, I still need to crush the Sugar Dragon. I have a FIERCOM Sugar Dragon - I was that person that snuck chocolate, cookies, or even just spoonfuls of honey (cane sugar, etc. GROSS blech). I don't want to be that person. 
    I am enjoying that so far, real foods taste so much sweeter than they used to! Sweet potatoes are delicious and sweet, RX bars and Lara bars aren't actually gross, and dates taste as good as chocolate IMO. ALREADY. 
    This is my first whole30 and I'm eager to see how it goes!

    Hello, I'm starting tomorrow.  This will be my 2nd W30.  My first one was a few years ago, I did really well but I failed to follow the reintroduction as recommended.  Few months later, I was back to my old habits   Since then I been struggling with weight loss and a lot inflammation.  I have a few autoimmune illnesses and I also have some food sensitivities.  I also have PCOS and I know keeping a diet of no sugar, grains, and gluten is very beneficial to balance my hormones.
    I decided to do this Whole 30 because my sugar dragon is out of control and needs to be tamed. I'm also tired of being tired.  It is time to take care of myself and start living a happy and healthier life.
