    @jessdoit & @kirbz and anyone else who is interested. I've been using the real plans app for meal planning/shopping/prep and it has made life so much easier. I can plan out a weeks worth of breaks, lunches, & dinners for 2 adults and 2 kiddos in about 30 minutes, including my shopping list. AND it has a Whole 30 mode you can add on or you can just tweak your food preferences to make the suggestions compliant. It is super easy to use and you can even import your own recipes. You might want to check it out. www.realplans.com

    No, not strange. I had trouble choking down my breakfast this morning too. Ended up tossing half of it. When it came around to lunch time what I had packed just wasn't appealing to me, so I waited until I was really hungry. Still wasn't into it, but ate it any way. I'm pretty sure it's just my brain fighting me. I don't usually get the physical symptoms either, but I do occasionally get to where nothing is appealing at all. It usually goes away in a day or so. Just give it time. I pointed to the time line because the nausea and general "Meh" is usually attributed to the hangover stage and your original post (" Gah, food sucks! All joy has been taken out of eating. I don't even find it all that hard not to eat between meals because I just don't want to eat at all...") sounded a little like the beginning of KILL ALL THE THINGS! lol. Hang in there, it'll get better soon...I hope.

    @kirbz Actually, the way you are feeling is pretty normal for this point in the W30. Check out the timeline, especially days 2-3 & 4-7. http://whole30.com/2013/08/revised-timeline/

    @Jsjenkins301 It's actually listed on facebook as Whole30 Forum 3/20. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1405933302811196/?multi_permalinks=1407023499368843%2C1406777392726787%2C1406618389409354&notif_t=group_activity&notif_id=1490145667025199

    @Hockey4Life The Tessemae's BBQ sauce is delicious! My favorite even when I'm not on W30. I'm not a fan of their ketchup though, it's a bit...strange. Love, love, love the Lemon Garlic dressing and the Lemon Chesapeake dressing is really good too, I go through a bottle of at least one of them a week!! Good thing Kroger and Publix carry them in store. The Chesapeake Mayo is awesome with boiled eggs too. Sorry to sound like a Tessemae's commercial, I promise they don't pay me. Ha!

    @Hockey4Life @Rachie037 @SharkLover There's a reason days 2-3 are know as "The Hangover". Check out the Whole 30 timeline for the full explanation. http://whole30.com/2013/08/revised-timeline/ Add a bit more fat to your afternoon meal, catch a power nap if you can, and go to bed early over the next couple days. It will get better, we're almost to the "Kill all the things" phase...lol

    Hi all! I just found this forum today, but I started yesterday too. This is round 3 for me and will be longer than 30 days, more likely it will be 90 days. I finished my last W30 (45) on Feb 16th, with the intent of taking a week off for vacation (not going crazy, but relaxing the rules a bit), then getting right back on again. Well, it's been a month and I've gone totally off track. It's not been every meal, every day, but at least one meal, most days has been complete and total crap and I'm feeling it. So... back on track starting yesterday. My husband and kids don't have a choice are on board too, so that makes it much easier. I spent some time Sunday shopping and prepping for us for the week. Chopped/blanched veggies, boiled eggs, chicken breast in the Instant Pot to make 2 kinds of chicken salad for lunches, kale & pomegranate salad, breakfast sausage, bacon, mayo, Caesar dressing, & ghee. Only took about an hour. I didn't do much exercise last round, this time I am doing P90x3 and I just bought an old Nordic Track that I'm pretty psyched about. I'm really glad I found this forum and will have others to support and get support from this round. Have a great day 2!

    Why does every can of tuna contain soy??

    If you have a BJ's Whole Sale Club, the Wellsley Farms brand of both white albacore and skip jack tuna are soy free and some of the least expensive I've found. Tuna, salt, & water are the only ingredients. I picked up a 10 pack for $11.99, that's just $1.20 per can.
