    Whole30 for Lent: starting February 18th.

    My whole30 ended on Monday! I ended with 9.8# weight loss. I really would like to know my BMI. I added tortilla chips Tuesday so two days of whole30 now. I didn't want to add legumes back in. I am adding yogurt in next. Having trouble not nibbling now. Need to stick with what I have learned!!!!! Have learned alot! Kudos to all for making it!

    Does anyone know if Costco has compliant bacon or sausage. I am going to a town that has a Costco and wondered if they did and if I can get a day pass. Whole foods is in this town too? Any luck there? Thanks!

    Day 15 half way there! I am feeling better! The tiredness is gone! I am in need of new recipes, I am searching, last few I made weren't too yummy I am trying to cook to keep things fresh and me motivated. I need a good recipe for chicken and beef roast if anyone has a good one! Yeah to half way! This is my first Whole30!

    Thanks for the feedback on RPM/SPINNING, I had eggs before I taught today. I do feel a bit more energy today. It is my day 11, still not feeling like clothes are looser, wondering if I am too heavy on the coconut oil and too many sweet potatoes! They are too yummy!! Hope you all have a good day!

    I read the book, but as a newbie am struglling with day 10 still feeling tired and if I am feeling like I am gaining anything from this right now. I do like the food, but feel terrible, and like others don't think I am losing weight. Trying to be optimistic that energy will come.

    I am on day 9 start the Monday of Lent. I made this Cinnamon Apple Grain-Free Breakfast Porridge (Dairy-Free too!) for breakfast and it was amazing. http://thenourishinghome.com/2014/10/grain-free-cinnamon-apple-breakfast-porridge/ I am tired of eggs too. I am hoping it has enough protein to get me to lunch!!! Also for dinner last night we had Slow cooker Cheater Pork Stew--http://nomnompaleo.com/post/8425643634/slow-cooker-cheater-pork-stew My pickiest eaters- 14 year old and 15 year old sons even loved this one. I did bagged cabbage instead of whole head for simplicity. Loved it. I need crockpot since I work and have two sons in every sport! Thanks for all your support and ideas!

    Hi fellow Whole30 friends, I am on day 7 and feel like I have hit the "kill kill kill" on top of my workout energy plummetting even further?? Can I go any lower? Plus since I can't find compliant bacon, that is all I am craving!! Praying to get through! I will not quit! This is my first and am doing it for Lent, but wow!!! Loving the food, though!! Good luck today to all!

    Help on energy drink pre-workout

    Thanks, will try to look at the pre/post workout as just fuel! I have tried for years to only eat and enjoy, not waste empty calories! Different mindset to see these as needed fuel! Thanks

    Help on energy drink pre-workout

    Thanks for the feedback. I will try chicken and sweet potato afterwards. The thought of chicken for breafast sounds disgusting. I will be forcing myself to eat versus enjoyment. I will try though and see if I can get past this lull of no caffeine in the morning. I am loving the taste of all of the food I am eating otherwise. I can't believe the difference in the taste of real food versus lowfat/low calorie foods. I just need to fight off the mornings! I thrive on my workouts and really need to lose about 10 pounds and lean up to be in really great shape! Thanks for your help this is a very foreign way of looking at food. Still on the learning curve.
  13. I am in day 4 of my first Whole30. I am doing it for Lent, but decided starting at beginning of week is better. I am struggling with two things. One I have always drank Spark from Advocare before working out. It has equivalent to 1 cup of coffee of caffeine. I love the jolt to get me going, I teach hour long spinning at 5:30am. Getting up at 4:45am. I am eating a few macademia nuts before teaching, but need either SPARK or V8 with energy- it has sucralose in it, but only 11 carbs??? UGH help!!! Also, post workout, I am showering and getting ready at gym for work. So can't eat anyting I've seen suggested- hardboiled egg would make me sick. I have just been eating macadamia nuts then eating sweet potatoes, eggs, spinach, sausage as soon as I get to work for M1.
