    Hi all..
     
    Well i'm off and running this morning on day 1.
    First meal of eggs, baby spinach and avo done and dusted. 
    I have had a couple of false starts with the whole30 (not even making it a week in) feeling positive that this one will be a success!

    Hi everyone! 
     
    I'm in a  group that started August 10th (allllmost there!), and just wanted to wish all of you luck getting started. People have already posted some great advice—buy pre-shredded veggies to make life easier, don't try a fancy recipe for every meal, plan ahead! I didn't think I could make it in a million years, but it looks like I will and after a couple of weeks I didn't even want to go back. I only tried about one fancy new recipe a week and otherwise kept it simple. I realized that basic ingredients were easy to create with. 
     
    My most helpful pointers, garnered from amazing people in this forum: 
    --Drink a TON of water the first week especially to help work through the nasties. (but all the time really)
    —Don't shy away from the amount of fat recommended in the meal template. You'll need it! 
    --If you're getting headaches a lot, make sure to eat starchy veggies (sweet potatoes, carrots, etc). I struggled with that for a week, and made sure to do starches at breakfast and night. 
    —Make leftovers of everything!
    —Stock up on Lara bars (some, not all, are compliant) and keep one on you for emergencies. 
    —If you have stomach troubles at first (I did), make sure you're not eating too many raw veggies or nuts. 
    —Instead of trying to replace sandwiches (and just being sad about it) make tuna or chicken salad to serve on greens. Yum. 
     
    YOU CAN DO IT!!!

    Hi everyone!
     
    I'm planning on starting whole30 on the 3rd of March also. Would be great to have some support/friends along the way. A facebook group sounds like a great idea!
     
    Cheers,

    Well done Aussies! It's great reading about everyone's progress.. I'm in Melbourne... About to kick off on Monday 3rd (after a couple of false starts!!) I'm hoping getting active on the forum is going to be the missing link to help me get through.
