    My tuppence worth...
    I agree with Alana. Treat this as healing your body, your food associations, and the weight loss will probably be a 'side-effect'. Once you've got the right foods dialled in, you're sleeping well and moving a little, then you can start to tweak if the weight loss isn't what you wanted. But for me, I got to this lovely magical headspace after a while that means that I'm more concerned with the health aspects than the scale. An absolute miracle!
    Good luck.

    5 Minute Soup: I always have chicken or beef stock in the fridge. Bring one cup to a boil, slice carrot, shallots, and mushrooms and add it to the boiling stock, then add leftover shredded meat or (I try to keep this in the fridge for breakfast) small pieces of marinated beef. The soup is light enough that you can have it even now that the weather is warming up.

    B-L-T salad with sliced strawberries, sliced boiled eggs, and (now that I can have it again) cottage cheese. Good with or without lettuce.This is my favorite salad in the summer and it takes less than 5 minutes to make. Honestly I think salads are for rabbits, but this is chunky and satisfying enough that even I will eat it and love it (without lettuce).

    Heat some coconut oil in a pan, fry some shrimp, sliced onions, and sliced red peppers with salt, pepper, and some chili paste and basil. Then pour a little coconut milk over it to make a sauce. It's a 5 minute shrimp curry breakfast.

    Slice some apples and stir fry them in coconut oil (or ghee, if you don't like coconut oil). Two big apples and 4 or 5 large spoons of oil, per person. It's good warm or cold.

    Wardolf salad (I like to add raisins or cranberries)

    Sweet potato tater tots fried in beef tallow with slices of sausage. If cubed potatoes take too long to cook, you could shred them in a cheese grater instead.

    As an alternative, why not just eat more at lunch and dinner and stop eating breakfast?

    That all helps a lot. I hadn't even seen the meal template. Some time ago, my doctor told me to cut the carbs, but I didn't have a framework for how much of what I was supposed to be eating. I've printed out 2 copies - one is on the fridge, and one is going to ride around with me in my car.
    I haven't "listened" to my body for a long time. Here we go...

    I am also a "newbie" to Whole30, on day 8 of 30. Doing great so far.
    I was also worried about gaining weight, as some people had mentioned. However, if you are really limiting your food intake to what is recommended the results will likely be different (as mine have been thus far). The hardest thing for me has been staying away from "snacking," because they don't tend to follow the meal template of protein/fat/veggies. A handful of almond does not follow the meal template, so I had to force myself to quit! Once you get into days 6-7 and are eating the meal template as recommended, the snacks will just fall away.
    Good luck!

    I've attempted the whole 30 a million times and have set a million goals and I constantly fail. I'm doing this whole 30 and I'm setting myself up with all the tools to succeed. I've battled with my love/hate for food for years and I'm ready to have control. I've been paleo for a year and a half but my problem is alcohol and when alcohol is involved so is pizza, candy, junk..you name it then the next morning I step on the scale and immediately hate myself and go into a depression.
    I'm ready to over come this battle and achieve my goal for the very first time! I will be actively posting on here and if anyone else is starting around this time keep in touch so we can do this together!!!!!
    Happy Whole 30 everyone!!!!
