    Is anyone else feeling kinda blue? I am 100% compliant, not tired, or anything like that, just still kinda easy to get frustrated and blue.
  3. High Oilec Organic Sunflower or Safflower Oil. Friend or Foe? I'm confused. The Whole30 list of "Can I haves" says limit these two oils to dining out. The It All Starts With Food book is really tough on both oils. The Mayo recipe on this site says these can be used (or light olive oil). What gives? Are these okay or avoid foods? Thanks.

    That's pretty normal Nita. It is probably your body saying good bye to carbs. Try to eat breakfast. You've got to stay on the food plan, because as you switch over from relying on processed carbs to whole food, there has to be something there for your body to go to so it can get off the old habits.

    This will be my second Whole30. I really liked the first one, what I learned, and going through it. One of the best parts was this forum. My sister and my girlfriend are joining too. Start day is tomorrow.
  7. Thank you. I did both soy and legumes so maybe I will split them out and try again. I also had non gluten grains this am (some oatmeal) and by dinner I felt edgy again. I'm really surprised by that. So I'm going to try breaking out soy and legumes and maybe try another day with oatmeal down the line. Thanks.

    mayo...not

    Thank you Irish Moderator. Okay, i didn't add the lemon juice because in the recipe Melissa wrote it said add it last. I will try the extra egg trick. And thank you for the room temp advice.
  9. Hi there. I'm reintroducing things. I've gone thru soy, then 3 days later, dairy and I have non gluten and then gluten to go. So in all, with two days in between, that's 12 days, right? And then after that, say three days after, I'm going to have a glass of wine, so I guess it's 15. Is this right? You try one food group for a day, then take two days break, going back to the full Whole30, even if you have passed a group of foods on a prior intro day. Is this the play? Also, I noticed, say about a week into the Whole30 that I just felt calmer. The way you feel say a day after a massage. Just calmer and not wound up. Did anyone else have that? Could that be related to inflammation? I kind of felt wound up after soy/legumes day. Is that possible? Thanks in advance. J

    Okay, I have a Breveille immersion blender and just tried the "dump and blend". total Fail. Had everything at room temp. Put all ingredients except for lemon juice in. It mixed, But it is very thin and runny. Any tips?
  11. Hey, I just wanted to say this has been a great forum to take this journey with. I really appreciate everyone's honesty and support of each other through this. I'm really happy I made it through the Whole30, and I do feel a great deal calmer. I liked reading what everyone was up to, and I think we should all be incredibly proud of our accomplishment! Well Done August 10-ers! J
  12. Really awesome that you and your husband handled your camping trip so well! You' can tackle the future no problem!
  13. No, def don't weight 112 Tom! Thanks everyone for the advice. I thought I had it but looks like I have some tinkering to do. Thanks again, especially on the nuts. A big part of it is I don't have an easy go to protein. Have to do a little more planning.
  14. Hi there; I would like to know if anyone can give me some advice on this: I'm doing great on the W30, Day 23. I feel calm, and strong, and have much fewer aches when I wake up in the morning.

I am pretty active right now. So here's what I've been eating/sleeping/drinking last three days...fairly typical for me: Water: 56oz Sleep: 8hrs Workout: No workout Breakfast: 2 eggs, potatoes Lunch: Mango, 2 eggs, 6 cashews, fresh peppers, W30 Mayo (2 tbsp) Mid Afternoon: 1 egg, banana, 6 cashews Dinner: Ground beef, sweet potato, fresh veggies, asparagus ----------- Water: 56oz Sleep: 9 hours Workout: Cross Fit Breakfast 2 Eggs, Potatoes Post Workout: Nuts, Peach Lunch: 2 long strips bacon, 2 oz coconut flakes (Daze, no sugar), Banana, 3/4 sweet potato Mid Afternoon: Plum, 20 cashews Dinner: Whole30 Mexican Chili, fresh peppers, 2oz W30 Mayo, 1/4 sweet potato ------------------- Water: 63oz Sleep: 9 hours Workout: Yoga, cleaned out garage (lots of lifting) Breakfast: 2 eggs, 1 cup fresh fruit Post Yoga: 2 eggs ,banana Lunch: Chicken, Broccoli, 3/4 sweet potato Mid Afternoon: nuts, plum: later, coconut flakes Late Afternoon: Later, plum, nuts Dinner: Duck breast, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers Advice appreciated!
