    New to Whole30 in Iowa

    Welcome! Any juices that you may be considering are highly discouraged on Whole30 - you'll find increased satiety and less cravings if you can forgo them altogether.

    Starting my second Whole 30 in January!

    Did you happen to do proper reintroductions at the end of your last Whole30? If not, those reintroductions are really "the" way that you can help yourself create a plan that works for you at all times of the year. We really encourage you to test how foods react with not only your body but your mental and emotional states as well.

    Started on Dec 5. So far so good!!

    Eliminating sugar cravings is one of the main desires of most people. Our recommendations to assist are to make sure that you are not using sweets in any form (ie, fruits alone, carby nuts like cashews etc) to satisfy the cravings. If you can't just power through, eat something like protein and fat (ie, some chicken and avocado etc) or something the opposite of sugar like a good, briney handful of olives. Make sure you're eating enough overall and drinking adequate water. Remember that lack of sleep will also influence the intensity and timing of sugar cravings so if you're tired and you can, just go to bed! We're here if you need us, just reach out!

    Started on 12/3!

    Isn't this the truth? And then in January when they rank the "best and worst diets", we come in dead last after all the restriction and processed food nonsense programs. Nutty!

    Welcome! Nice to have you!

    I had that dull throbbing headache on and off for a little more than the first couple weeks. Generally it's a hormone adjustment side effect - take a headache pill if you need to, you don't have to suffer. Of course I'm not a doctor so if you're concerned, seek out medical advice.

    College student trying again!

    This is the important part, right here. Sounds like you're clear on the path forward!

    First Whole30 January 2nd.. determined to succeed!

    Welcome! You're right, it's not a diet but more of a personal experiment. The information gathered is so valuable and you take it with you to inform your decisions later on.

    Day 3 having troubles...

    Sort of? Not really. Go for something denser like potato, yam, sweet potato, winter squash. The summer squashes like zucchini and spaghetti aren't the best if you're trying to get a good serving of starches.

    Exercise Induced Rash after Whole30

    Hi @jennieokc - I can't say I've ever heard of this before! Did you do structured reintroductions at the end of your last Whole30? I know that from time to time I become allergic to my own sweat and the only thing that really helps is being really hydrated. Beyond that I would suggest another Whole30, see if it clears up and then do structured reintroductions.
  13. That's wonderful to hear, @Felice! So glad you experienced success!

    1/9/19 start! First time!

    Excellent! Love it when people do the Whole30 for that reason because it's so life-improving afterwards to know what affects you and how! Welcome!

    Psyching up for a December W30!

    Hi @Laura P. - interesting about how mayo is made in France! I bet your version was so rich and smooth!! For the salmon cakes, you can use canned pumpkin also. We don't worry about calories on Whole30 so use whatever squash floats your boat.
