  1. I started a Whole30 on August 18. I am new to the concept but read all of the manifestos, rules, etc. and did great August 18, 19 and 20. On the 21st, a Friday, I had brought some leftover salmon for lunch and when I heated it up, it dried out a lot and I couldn't choke it down. So, I had no protein for lunch. Long story short, by the time I got home from work that evening, I was so ravenous that I literally felt like I was losing my mind. I wolfed down a bowl of Cheerios with milk, and that was pretty much the end of my Whole30. Fast-forward to today. I'd like to try again. Does anyone have any tips on avoiding the scenario above? I could also use some advice on what to eat for Meal 1. I'm not sure I can bring myself to swallow another egg, even though I like them. A girl can only eat so many eggs. Also, I have a 19-month-old and a husband who is always knee-deep in a project, meaning most of our daughter's care falls to me. His projects are worthwhile (usually renovating our house) and I love spending time with my daughter, but I'm seriously strapped for time and I am feeling discouraged that I can ever manage to plan in advance enough to complete an entire Whole30.

    I'm starting today! My husband supports me but has no interest in doing Whole30 and is totally hooked on processed foods, so I'm going to have to learn to overlook his food and just focus on mine. I also have a toddler at home. It's going to be a challenge but we can do it!
