    Tina R got a reaction from AtlantaJJ in Help! Akward topic...diarrhea   
    When your body detoxes it dumps the junk from your cells into your intestines. Some people get constipated some get diarrhea. Better out than in. Stay hydrated and it should get better soon.

    You can get compliant canned chicken from http://www.pleasanthillgrain.com/canned_meat_canned_chicken_canned_turkey_canned_beef.aspx. The ingredients are chicken and salt. They don't even add water.

    Although there isn't an official 7 day meal shopping list, I created my own for you to use with the new Whole30 book if you want. This is for one person. I was unable to find recipes for slow cooker beef brisket and plantains in the new Whole30 book. So I used the Braised Beef Brisket recipe instead. You will have to find a pan fried plantain recipe and add those ingredients to the list. I hope this helps. Enjoy!Shopping List for 7 day meal plan.pdf

    Tina R got a reaction from Selcazare in Day 1...overwhelmed and sad   
    Here is my 2 cents . . .
    I think your experience is very similar to most people on the whole30. We are all overwhelmed at the beginning, we all get angry and frustrated (kill all things), we all get bored of cooking and thinking about food and don't feel hungry and barely eat. I just want to say welcome to the whole30! It is not easy! I don't think you should feel like a failure because your whole30 doesn't look like someone else's. I think you learned a lot during this challenge.
    Just a note about my whole30. I did not have any amazing results on my three whole30s. The only thing that improved was my acid reflux. I did not lose any weight, no improved sleep, no tiger blood, my skin did not improve. So from the outside I look like a failure, but for me I learned a lot about myself. I am still working to find the right food plan for me.
    I hope you can be gentile with yourself and realize how amazing you are! It takes a lot of courage to do a whole30 and to have support during it is awesome! I wish you all the best!

    Yes I am doing this by myself. My husband and friends all think I am crazy. But that is ok, it is not about them it is about me. Yes going to cocktail parties or having people over is very hard. Here is a trick I learned from Melissa Joulwan - The Clothes Make The Girl. Get a fancy glass add some sparkling water and a couple olives (Maybe a martini glass) or a toothpick with some fruit on it. Now nobody knows that you are not drinking and they should stop asking you why you are not drinking. Another trick I learned is to get a plate of food and walk around with it. Then everyone thinks you are eating and will get off your case. Yes these are little white lies but when you have to deal with this over and over it is just easier to do this. Also I eat before I go anywhere that way I am not tempted to eat off the plan.
     
    This is all about you and your health. Stand strong and do what works for you. Hopefully when we start to feel amazing it won't seem so hard anymore.

    I think you need to eat the foods that make you feel the best. Your husband should support you not matter what. My husband doesn't eat paelo and probably thinks I am crazy. I have had some health issues and eating paleo has helped with the pain so I have a specific reason to eat this way. Since I do most of the cooking I compromise with my husband. I'll make a paleo spaghetti sauce with meat balls and then make his noodles and make my spaghetti squash. Yes it is more work for me but then he can't complain. I do not try to force him to eat healthy but since most of the paleo food is so good he ends up eating paleo. I am sensing a negative tone about paelo for you, forgive me if I am off the mark. Maybe you feel deprived. Perhaps your husband is picking up on this negative emotion and wants you to stop doing this so you will be happy. Maybe he just wants his junk food buddy back.
     
    Remember the Whole30 is not a WholeLIFE. I bet you will be able to find a balance that works for your family, even if it means pizza once in a while. I wish you all the best and hope you find the support you need to keep going.

    Check out Nom Nom Paleo and Well Fed for some great recipes. Well Fed also has tips for a weekly cookup so you can get most of the food prepared on one day and then quickly put together plates during the week. Good Luck!

    Day 0  You are full of energy and hope. You have read the rules online and printed your shopping list, you can do this challenge. You decide that you dont need to buy It Starts With Food to do this challenge.
     
    Day 1 OMG your food budget has just doubled. You can't believe anyone can eat healthy on a budget. But you can do this, it's only 30 days.
     
    Day 2 You have banana and egg pancakes for breakfast and you reach for some tuna for lunch. You glance at the ingredients and see soy. THERE IS SOY IN CANNED TUNA?! You search for can I have tuna with soy on the website and find The Official Can I Have guide to the Whole30 that explains all of this. http://whole30.com/?s=Can+I+have. Not only can you not have soy, you can't have banana and egg pancakes because they are considered - sex with your pants on - foods. You immediately buy the ebook It Starts With Food and read it. After reading the book you realize that you are supposed to eat 2 to 3 cups of vegetables and good fats at every meal. You head back to the store for more food.
     
    Days 3 to 7 You feel like a slave to the kitchen because you are constantly chopping, cooking or cleaning. How can anyone live this way? There has to be an easier way. You search online and find The Clothes Make The Girl, Nom Nom Paleo and Stupid Easy Paleo. You see some great recipes and ebooks and you immediately buy them all.
     
    Days 8 - 9 You decide you are going to organize your cooking this week. You have your shopping list and you are ready to get all those exotic compliant ingredients. You go to 4 different stores but you still can't find Red Boat Fish Sauce. You do a big cook up for the week and you are ready!
     
    Day 10 Your friends invite you out for pizza and beer. You are considering it. After all you made it 10 days, you deserve it. You are feeling really cranky and pizza and beer just might make you feel better. You wonder How bad can a little pizza and beer be? Then you find the post "So . . . you're saying you want to quit?" http://whole30.com/?s=I+want+to+quit. And you decline the invitation and stick to the challenge.
     
    Days 11- 14  If you see another egg you are going to scream! You are bored with meat and vegetables and just want some chocolate and alcohol. You are starting to notice all of the food ads on TV and in magazines. How are you going to make it for another three weeks? You are having strange dreams about non compliant food. You actually wake up in a cold sweat thinking that you cheated.
     
    Days 15 to 21 You search the website for some recipes and stumble on the forum "THERE IS A FORUM?!". You find all kinds of interesting tips and support. You read The Crazy Things People Say forum and have a great laugh because you have heard most of these during your challenge.
     
    Days 22 to 30 - You don't really feel any different. You look the same as the day you started. You are tempted to step on the scale to see if you lost any weight. You notice small changes like your acid reflux is gone but your fat jeans are still tight. You wonder if you are going to have to extend this to a Whole60.
     
    Day 30. You made it! You didn't cheat. You feel good and decide to celebrate. You go out for pizza, beer and ice cream. You deserve it.
     
    Day 31 You feel miserable and bloated. You have a massive headache and can barely get out of bed. You decide to do another Whole30.
