    Vegetarianism/Hypoglycemia/Mood Disorders

    I have found that If I have a lot of gluten it severely depresses me. I am gluten sensitive and also have a mood disorder. My first go round on the W30 was an eye opener. I felt amazing and had a ton of energy! i think you will love it!

    Starting mon 21 September. Anybody in?

    Today was my first day and my 3rd W30. Been way off the bandwagon so expect to experience some serious suck. Sigh, oh well on my way to improved health and less of me!

    Starting July 1st

    Starting today and ugh having such a stressful day at work. This isn't my first W30 rodeo so I'll hang in there! Good luck everyone!
  4. Exactly what I was going to say. He is going to get hit hard in detox so definitely take ladyshanny's advice and give him plenty of fat, salt, starchy vegs and lots of seasoning. You seriously will have a hard time overdoing it when you use good fats. Good luck!

    Day 1 and looking for a buddy!

    Just wanted to say congrats! Being able to be around big banquets and wedding food without wanting to dive in is a huge step. I think it shows just how powerful this way of eating is. Have a great fall and winter!

    Hi all! I too am starting another W30 today after a month off! I did my first one in August with great success but fell back into the candy dish and wine bottle (a little) in September. I didn't gain any weight back but my sugar dragon is back in force and I feel the need for some structure which this forum offers in spades! Looking forward to getting to know you all!

    September 3rd Newbie!

    Ladies, Good job and congrats on making it to Day 9! Keep in mind that withdrawal symptoms may continue for a few weeks or longer if you aren't 100% compliant. Ahem, Lara Bars are pure sugar bombs! I made the mistake of eating them a few times during the first couple of weeks and it definitely delayed my healing. Plan ahead and have a snack with you that includes, protein, veggies and a fat. A hunk of chicken, some snap peas and carrots and some nuts would be perfect. Go girls!
