    I'm 60 and a retired Law Enforcement Officer from Nevada. I live in Indiana now. Unfortunately, I've gained weight since retiring 9 years ago and coupled with problems with my Thyroid, my bad eating habits are wreaking havoc on me.
    I'm looking forward to be free from the Thyroid issues, arthritis, bad back (spasms, etc), sinus issues, acid reflux, locking finger joints, hands that fall asleep, stomach upset issues, candida and just a general icky feeling. I realize the Whole 30 might not solve all of those issues, but I'm willing to bet it will address some of them.
    I love The Lord and I'm a fierce supporter of Israel. I also love making Art. I love drawing, colored pencils, and I'm working on learning watercolors. I have 4 pups (2 are my Mom's, who lives with me) and I love them more than I can say. They are my "kids"!
    Glad to be a part of this "community".

    Indeed I am. I'm also noticing what foods make my stomach upset. I went through a period of a couple years where every time I ate, I'd get nauseous about 15 min. after eating and it would last for about 5-10 min. then go away. That sucked. So, I can narrow things down a bit more. I'll tell you one thing....carb overload gives me serious hot flashes where my head feels like a zit that might pop and then my face and ears get super red and hot. Not pleasant. Having a little carbs, here and there is ok, but like eating a bunch of popcorn is not pleasant. That stinks because I'm a popcorn addict! Moderation I guess. Learning....

    Guess I'm gonna have to get that book! Right now I'm reading the Keto Reset. Still a long ways off from putting it in to effect and truthfully not gonna try with the holidays, but will rock it at the first of the year. I'm sticking with "sensible eating" right now and trying to steer clear of the stuff I know makes my stomach hurt and gives me the bloated feeling. Still not having sugar in my coffee, which is huge!

    @Svmomma, was it you who gave us that cashew crusted chicken recipe? I know it was on the other post, but I can't find it. Or was it @dmrob2009?

    Thanks! I'm ok today. It was a rough night though. I hope you feel better soon. I don't know if it was soda or the grease! But...ugh! Hey...btw...can you give me the link to the reintro group again? I lost it. Thanks!

    In all honesty...I ate at a fast food joint...because I worked my butt off in the yard and grooming 3 dogs and my back hurt and...well, I wanted it. It was easy. It DID NOT MAKE ME FEEL GOOD or satisfied. In fact, I felt crappy and bloated and sort of sick to my stomach! The grass is not always greener where we were before and if it was...we wouldn't be here in the first place! So, hang in there, @SineadMon! I hope my experience helps to curb your cravings.

    Having had some digestive discomfort from Natural Calm myself....I had to cut the dosage in half. I only take it at night, not during the day and I started off with less than the recommended dose and then built it up from there.

    I'm game to go back and forth between the two.

    You are most welcome, @Mike5858! Actually I think I will stick around. Hard to imagine a better group of people to bounce ideas and questions off of, even if I'm on a different program. So happy we could all come to this thread and support each other! Here's to the rest of the journey!
