    Hi there!

    Hi Jeanye! I do not even like coffee (or tea), but I have to say coconut milk and cocoa powder sounds delish!

    Hi there!

    Wholehealth, Thanks for the advice! Lol, yes, you do sound a lot like my biology and psychology profs (I'm in school too). That's a good way to look at it, as an experiment. So what would I put cocoa powder in? That stuff is NOT ok on it's own. Lol! I would like to give it up altogether like I did with soda 5 years ago. But chocolate is something I'd probably like to keep around as a special treat. And yes, I do love some coconut oil

    Hi there!

    Thanks for the welcome, all! Jason , glad to see the significant recovery Is possible. I had to quit physical therapy after 6 weeks because my husband had to leave for a month. It took me a good 7 months to walk without a limp and I still sometimes do in the morning when I first get out of bed. Congrats on your competition level fitness after injury!

    New to Paleo..might as well start it right!

    Hi Tiffany! I hope your W30 is going well! My husband just retired from the Air Force last year, so I was a military wife for 15 years. Best wishes for your journey!

    Hi there!

    I am starting my first Whole 30 today. I want to eliminate the eczema that threatens to take over my torso, drop some weight, and reclaim my athlete days. All of this, of course, will not happen overnight. Right now I'm just going to concentrate on the food. I am a chocoholic and am going to have to find something else to eat. lol. I am so thankful I do not have to give up my sparkling water! I am a 37 year old wife to a great man and mom to our seven little ones. We homeschool and I breastfeed two of my children, which means that yes, I generally have no time to myself, and doing anything that is primarily for me is not easy. I am also one year out from an achilles tendon rupture, after which I gained 30 lbs from not being able to workout like I used to, and probably some depression in there too. My injured leg is still shaped differently and is very weak. I hope to correct that. So even though I am afraid I'm going to fail miserably at this, I'm giving it a go. Being a long time follower of the traditional foods movement (Weston A Price), I already love whole foods, so really the only problem will be the quick shot of sugar I get when it's hard to find the time to eat an actual meal. I look forward to meeting you all!

    New, started today! :)

    Best of luck to you! I'm starting today. I also like to eat low carb, but am fairly new to this way of eating.
