    restless nights

    I wasn't sure where to post this...but the last two nights have been restless...with almost no sleep for me. I wondered if this is something normal with my body going through changes? Is anyone going through this...or had gone through this? Any tips, etc.? Thanks!

    pumpkin

    I am on my 2nd W30. This one I am doing with AIP. I would like to enjoy some pumpkin. What can I make with pumpkin?!?!?!

    Deb-LoL! Love the pic of blueberry girl! I sware, I might turn into her! But really...I have one serving of blueberries today. I'm proud of myself! The sugar dragon was begging to be fed... I have decided since I did an official W30...and rocked that one...I am going to just follow autoimmune paleo. I read The Paleo Approach, and also have the Cookbook. I will check back to this group now and then...but it's hard for me to keep up in this thread. I wish you all the best of luck and success with your W30 programs! Take care.

    Whole 30 Binge

    I am right along with you. I happen to come across this thread...and for the last week or so, I can't seem to stop snacking...especially on blueberries. I am on my 2nd W30...this time AIP. I am on day 12. I am wondering if I am not getting enough of something?!?!

    Time of the month and Whole 30

    I am almost ravenous the week leading up to my period. I am glad I can across this post. I will eat more starchy carbs. Keep rocking your 2nd W30!

    I can't keep up on this thread! I have young kids who occupy my time (as you all understand, I'm sure)! I. can't. stop. eating. blueberries. I think I am going to turn into one. I am wondering at this point if I have fallen off the W30 bandwagon?!?! I may need to restart once I can get a grip on this. I completed a W30 recently with no problem. I wasn't eating this many blueberries...it's like my body needs them! I wonder if it's because I don't eat eggs and nuts/seeds anymore with AIP. I must not be getting enough of something. CC: I did see you are doing a triathlon. Super awesome! Good luck! You are inspirational to people like myself who run. I saw your post as it was the first one when I logged on...then I lost track. Hope everyone has a great weekend! :-)

    Ha ha...thanks for the laugh Dave! Totally needed it! I am going to do whatever it takes to tame my sugar dragon. That is why I am here on this flight with you fine folks! Thinking of everyone...and hoping you having a good week so far. :-)

    Hey everyone! Hope you had a great holiday weekend! Day 9 of my W30 w/AIP. Over the weekend I craved blueberries and coconut manna. I just couldn't get enough. My menstrual cycle is next week, and I always seem SO hungry the week before...almost bottomless. I stayed within W30 foods, but I know I had more blueberries and coconut manna than the template allows. The sugar dragon seems to have a grip on me. I can see the inflammation in my stomach. I am thin, but by evening I look 3-4 months pregnant. I think I need to go cold turkey and stop eating the coconut manna. I think it's a BIG culprit...but hard to say. Dang SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) too. Ugh...I have a LONG way to heal! Lots of great people in this group...and I will read more of your quotes, etc. Great support system here! Have a fantastic week!

    Good morning! Day 5 for me...and definitely more conscience of what I am eating, especially the coconut manna. I am working hard to limit it to 4-5tbsp. a day. I forgot to mention I am FODMAP intolerant at the moment...and from what I have read...coconut is a high FODMAP food. I would love to be part of the IOD...but am a little stricter than even an AIP. I will do what I can! I did an AM yoga circuit this morning...but would much rather have done it on a paddle board in the ocean, etc. like what Meadow posted! Have a fabulous weekend! Thinking of everyone...much success with your W30's! :-)

    I just got my copy of the Paleo Approach Cookbook from Amazon. I am excited to get in the kitchen and cook! Day 3 of W30 + AIP...and doing okay. I had coconut manna for a snack, but less than I normally would. Following the guidelines otherwise. I am finding it harder to get out of bed in the morning. I feel groggy...but I pushed myself to run this morning. I made it 4.36 miles. Not too shabby. I will eventually catch up on reading posts, I sware! Hope everyone's week is going well! :-)

    @Deb: It is definitely a no brakes food for me. I found one thread...thanks! I find motivation in others with my running/exercise. We can all motivate one another. :-)

    Hi all! I haven't had time to read through all the posts in this forum...just glance quickly. I started my 2nd W30 today...only this time with AIP. I found it relatively easy to cut out the two big things I was continuing to still eat during my 1st W30...and that was eggs and nuts/seeds. So far so good! I think my biggest problem is I still like to snack between meals. I will typically grab some fruit or my latest addiction...which is coconut manna (puréed coconut). It is easy for me to grab a spoon and enjoy 1tbsp...sometimes 8 or 9. I know I should not consume that much...must be I need it, or the sugar dragon has it's claws in me. Other than that...I follow the W30 with AIP. A little about me: I have intestinal permeability and autoimmune thyroid disease. I am looking to heal my body with nutrition/food and exercise. That is why I am here doing my 2nd W30 with you fine folks! I run 2-3 days a week...typically 4-5 miles each time...with a long term goal of running a half marathon next Fall. I am also going to start a program to cross-train between runs...and it's called PiYo...which is a combination of pilates and yoga. Supposed to be good for toning, and building core strength. Thank you for letting me come along on this "flight" with you! Much W30 success to everyone! :-)

    Apple Cider Vinegar

    I will be starting another W30 with AIP...and I am confused about apple cider vinegar. I am also following a low FODMAP. With a low FODMAP, I am supposed to avoid apples. Apple cider vinegar is made with organic apples. Should I be avoiding it?!?!?! Thanks! :-)

    Looks I have pages and pages to read in the forum! I am going to join ya'll Monday, and have been slowly getting myself/food prepared. Any tips for this AIP virgin?!?!?!

    Apple Cider Vinegar

    Thanks...I figured I would need to avoid it. What is the "mother?"
  18. I have intestinal permeability...or what is called leaky gut syndrome. It's when the lining of the stomach thins out and let's food particles, etc. not get absorbed correctly. The food particles, etc. then circulate through my body. I wondered if anyone has had this, or currently has this and benefited from the Whole30 program? If so, what foods specifically healed your stomach? Thank you in advance!

    I like this group already! I will start my W30 AIP on Monday 8/25. Today is day 30 of my 1st W30. I did it...and I'm glad I gave it a shot! Thank you for welcoming me to this group...look forward to bring a part of it! :-)

    Intestinal Permeability

    @Deb C: Do you make the bone broth so it is AIP compliant? I am going to start my 2nd W30 with AIP...so want to be sure I am following the rules. :-)

    Hi everyone! I will finish my 1st W30 tomorrow...and I have seen/felt differences, but due to my autoimmune disease (Hoshimoto's), I feel I would benefit from a W30 + AIP. I would like the motivation/encouragement from others doing this program/have done this program. I had thought I would start fresh next Monday 8/25. Would I be able to join this group then? I know you are starting 8/21. Deb C. recommended this group to me! :-)

    Starting July 21

    Wow...tomorrow is day 30! This went fast for me...and I hope everyone else! Thank you all for being here...and your kind words of motivation through this W30 journey! I too plan to continue on and do another W30...but with AIP. I would still check in with everyone continuing on! :-)

    bone broth

    I was just realizing I forgot to mention/ask...These recipes posted...are they safe for AIP?!?!

    I am sure there is a recipe here somewhere for bone broth...but I was not even sure where to lo
