    The New Rx Bar - Chocolate Sea Salt

    Thanks, guys! Yeah, I generally stay away from them (like Lara Bars), but got an e-mail about this new one and wanted to check it out.
  2. The ingredient list is: Dates, Egg Whites, Almonds, Cashew Butter, 100% Chocolate, Sea Salt, Chocolate Flavor My concern is with the chocolate flavor. Will this bar also be W30 compliant? http://www.rxbar.com/products/cacao-collection.html

    Jumped In - Day 1 of First Whole 30

    Welcome, Sue! Glad you're here!
  4. Lmnop4462, This sounds exactly like my first few attempts at Whole30s. I could go for a week, 10 days, or even two weeks, but would then binge for a week or two. The cravings were so bad that at few points, I just wanted to give up on life. The only thing that really worked for me was to eat more. I now eat probably double what I ate when I first started attempting Whole30s, and have lost weight because of it. I also have a job where I'm on my feet a lot and do CrossFit. I found that fueling my body properly was the only way I was going to lose weight and stay on track. I hope you can figure out what works best for you.

    Question about "Light Tasting" olive oil

    I usually do 1/5 California Olive Ranch EVOO and 4/5 avocado oil. It saves a bit of money, and keeps the taste neutral.
  6. Hi, all! In response to politicalmama's questions (which are all good 'uns!)... To prepare, I'm going back over the rules and re-reading ISWF. I'm concerned that I will get tired of the program and having rules. I'm looking forward to making improvements in the gym. I'm apprehensive about having to cook a lot (even with a weekly meal prep!). I've done a couple W30s in the past. One was AWESOME, the other was kinda meh. Totes excited to start this with you guys!
  7. For me, CrossFit has been a life changer. I was never one to go to the gym or work out, though I've been somewhat active most of my life with horseback riding and hiking/walking. I was nervous about going, as I've had body image issues most of my life. However, I started at a small box back in '09 and it has become like a family to me. It's a great atmosphere of supportive people from all backgrounds and at all fitness levels. What missmary and littleg said pretty much sum it up. It's a good experience, if you can find the right fit. And it may bring out sides of you that you never knew were there. Plus, once you start getting the hang of it, it's like going to the playground to play with your friends.
