    Start date June 1

    Hooray! My partner and I completed Whole 30! Overall - easy to do, but my body wasn't pleased with all the fiber. Especially in the last two weeks... lots of... undesirable trips to the bathroom =/ Results: I lost 9.5 lbs and 3.6% body fat. (For reference, I'm 5'8" - finished at 119.5 lbs) My partner lost 20 lbs and 5.9% body fat. (For reference, he's 6' and finished at 165 lbs) Most of my pants are too big. We're going to stick to many of the habits we created this month (more salads, homemade dressing, healthy snacks!) but I can't wait to eat things like sushi, dark chocolate, and peanut butter again! (Strangely, I don't miss bread, beans, or any dairy at all.)

    Start date June 1

    My partner and I started June 1 - first time for both of us. We're "secretly" doing it - meaning, we are not telling anyone we know until we complete it (which I know we will). This is to show that we can be healthy without having "excuses" (sorry I'll pass on that doughnut, I'm on a diet, as opposed to: no thanks, I'll pass!). However, I felt I should share with the community here! Day 4 and I'm actually feeling the same - which is pretty great. I feel like I am getting plenty of food, and the biggest change is the planning aspect. When I was feeling tired, I noticed exercise helped pump me up again. In addition to the Whole30 restrictions, I have also excluded coffee (which I don't drink, but my partner does. I think kicking a caffeine habit is important, too) and any clarified butter or ghee as I already didn't eat dairy before this diet, so why introduce it now? My sister completed this and felt very positive about it. She was a bit "preachy" which actually detracted me at first. I thought I'd give it a shot, though, because I definitely have a sugar habit to kick! Ultimately I'd like to stick to primarily paleo diet. Good luck everyone!
