  1. Yeah, this is a great thread! I have generalized anxiety, as well as OCD that comes and goes. Also had pretty severe anorexia throughout my teens and early 20s (I'm almost 30 now), but my relationship with food is still pretty messed up. I just finished a Whole90 and found that it did improve my symptoms, especially concerning the latter because it forced me to NOT rely on food, especially sweets, to ease my thoughts and emotions. I did and still am consuming caffeine (GIANT mug of black tea or matcha in the morning, and usually a small coffee in the afternoon), and am considering giving that up for a while to see if it makes a difference. What helped the most, though, was acupuncture and homeopathics. I think they literally saved my life! I surely would have considered ending it if something didn't change; I was such a slave to the anxiety at that point that I couldn't pull myself out of it. I began going for regular treatments last December and continued for about 6 months; I'm still taking the remedies and go for acupuncture "boosters" every so often as needed. Not everyone responds to those kinds of treatments, but it's harmless so definitely worth a try.

    You know someone is doing a Whole30 when...

    BEST. THREAD. EVER. Haven't read all the previous comments, so forgive me if any of these are repeats! ...they complain that apples are too sweet. ...coworkers start assuming they're vegetarian because of all the vegetables they eat. (True story! Ummmm...since when does eating vegetables make one a vegetarian? And how could you NOT see the chicken thigh nestled next to my roasted cauliflower?!) ...they start salivating over organ meats. ...they turn down even the "healthy" sweets like homemade, nut- and date-based energy balls, because that sh** is some serious SWYPO. ...they carry meatballs in their purse instead of chocolate. ...they sit there and smirk while eating their zoodles and meat sauce because only they know it's not actually pasta. ...they're the only one who passes up dessert at holiday meals and opts for herbal tea. ...they start using strange words like "cauli-rice", "zoodles", and "no-gurt". ...their ears perk up whenever someone mentions bacon, avocado, coconut milk, or coconut oil. ..."saturated fat" = fightin' words.
