    A few things...just because it feels like you haven't lost weight doesn't mean you haven't ...especially if you're bloated or retaining water. Is it near that time of the month(sorry if that's personal)? Also, you can't spot reduce so losing body fat overall is the only way to lose abdominal fat. Lastly, javelin you tried eating fermented foods? Avoiding gassy/difficult to digest veggies (cruciferous veggies are hard on some)? Are you getting enough water?

    trigirl reacted to trigirl in NOW Super Enzymes - read tons of posts and still confused!   
    So I looked at the products in this link.
    One product recommended had Rice bran in it...so wouldnt' that make it noncompliant?
    And another had vegetable oil powder....isn't that non compliant?

    Actually, mixing plantains with eggs is not ok on a Whole30.  Since no bananas with eggs on a Whole30, no plantain and eggs - too close to Paleo-ifying pancakes. Sorry.

    Vegetable glycerin is not good: http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-vegetable-glycerin.htm#slideshow but it is not a sufficient reason to restart a Whole30. It probably made no difference to your experience. You should find products without it, but this is not a fail.

    trigirl reacted to Melimuse in Oh No! Should I restart?   
    Thanks, folks, I will not stress out since you kindly responded quickly! Something is working since I am not craving bad things or as much caffeine, and am completely off of tylenol, zrytek, and most of my HRT and experiencing fewer hotflashes. Likely three solid meals a day and less snacking will help with the energy level and bloat.

    trigirl got a reaction from Melimuse in Oh No! Should I restart?   
    I felt much bigger at day17.  I looked at my portions and decided to reduce my fat intake from 2-3 portions per meal to 1.  It has help me begin to feel and look less big.
    One thing I'm very deligent about is NO Snacking!  We are suppose to only eat 3 meals a day and if we are getting hungry between then look at what was not enough in the previous meal.  And also try drinking water instead of a snack.  I have found I can go from meal 2 at 12:30 to 7:30-8 for meal 3.  (not prefered but happens sometimes.)
    And remember you don't want fat or fruit post workout.
    And don't restart...just keep plugging along!

    trigirl reacted to missmary in Too much fat?   
    Coming from a diet of 1200-1500 calories a day it makes sense to me that there would be an adjustment period when you finally start providing the nourshment your body needs. It is as if your body is saying "this is great! but what if she starts starving us again? we better hold on to this!!" The beauty of the whole30 way of eating, is that it takes away the stuff that confuses our natural hunger and satiety signals and allows us to really tune into what our body needs. It took several months of consistency for me before the lbs started coming off eating this way. If I were you, I would resist the urge to restrict and give this a bit more time.
     
    good luck!

    I'm on Day 19 and have gotten bigger rather than beginning to slim out a bit AND I've gained fat around my abdomin.
    It's really tough and I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong.
     
    My sleep is improving, I don't have headaches, and I have begun to feel Tiger Blood.
    A bit of history about me....in 2010 I had adrenal fatigue and since then I have had a slight deposit of fat around my abdomin.  Since eating W30 there's been an increase in the fat aound my abdomin.  I'm 55, 5'2", and on bioidentical hormones and take a very low dose of Levothyroxine.
    I'm also an Ironman triathlete and have not been able to train since Sept due to an injury...so my exercise in minimal.
     
    I know when I had AF once I was "healed" the fat just came off.  I am wondering if that's the same thing here?

    You are boosting your immune system by eating real, whole foods and avoiding crap. Add plenty of sleep and you are fine. Only the sick need worry cleanses, detoxes, and immune system aids.

    Making sure I get enough sleep makes a big difference. I can tell when I start feeling tired that I'm vulnerable to something; often if I really focus on sleep I can kick it before I actually get sick.

    Sounds like these are all prescribed by a doctor?  If so, you're fine. Doctor's prescriptions trump Whole30.
