I personally did not care for it. It is very heavily seasoned. So if you like that kind of thing, try it. It smelled amazing and I ate a bit but could not bring myself to eat the serving I gave myself. Thus, the Applegate turkey with mustard.

    Only 2 meals a day?

    My question would be why are you only eating two meals per day? Is there a reason, if yes, what is it? I stick to 3 meals per day, no snacks. For me, my body is never ravenously hungry. I'm just regular hungry when it's time for a meal. I would listen to your body and stomach cues to find the right for you. I don't think there is a one meal number, fits all kind of philosophy. But I would really gauge and listen to WHY it's happening. For example: do you want to only eat 2 meals and if yes, why? Asking key questions and answering honestly will help determine what is healthiest and life-giving for you.

    Skin Breakout.....On day 30 (??)

    I always get a cycle pimple somewhere on my body, Whole30 or not. I'm sure Whole30 could help with it, but for me, I've always still received my monthly pimple. It's quite comical, really.

    Going off the pill?

    I did not "go off the pill" on Whole30. I stopped using any form of contraceptives in my 20s. There is an adjustment period for your body when you first stop using contraceptives. I would imagine now would be an ideal place to start, but if this is something you desire, I wouldn't wait. Just like when you change any part of your life, there will be a time of adjustment. Just stick with it and seek medical care as necessary! All the best.

    Whole 30 period weirdness

    My cycle is very fast and furious on Whole30. Yours could change as a result of a diet change. I would suggest seeking the care of a medical professional, however, to ease your mind.

    Whole 30 on a very tight budget

    I agree with Elizabeth - keep meals simple. Meal 1 can be eggs and a piece of fruit or eggs and compliant bacon. Meal 2 can be a garden salad with chicken. Meal 3 can be burger patties with plain baked potato and roasted broccoli. That whole day would cost very little. Keep some meals very repetitive and make sure you eat all your leftovers!

    Coconut Yogurt

    My husband can't eat eggs. He has always viewed breakfast as "Meal 1." And really, it's an American thing that we view breakfast as what it is. Most other countries, from what I understand, don't view it in the same way we do. He typically eats chicken and a potato side for breakfast OR if there are leftovers, he'll eat stew or whatever. Breakfast is what YOU make it, not what society says it is. The spirit of Whole30 is to try new foods. I'd take that spirit to heart and make some egg casseroles or try leftovers for breakfast and see how that makes you feel both physically and mentally.
  23. I make it a point not to eat out as much on Whole30. It really solves many problems. 1. You learn other ways to socialize other than making food the social activity. 2. You save money. 3. You really focus on eating what fuels your body and following the template instead of eating only 2 eggs when that is not adhering to the meal template. My point is that I realize there are social engagements that require our attendance, but maybe you could also step up for some of the suggested engagements and offer to cook a big pot of soup for the group or suggest only doing the movie fest, not ending with food at all OR just not going to the food part. At the end of the day, you have control over your day and your life. You can choose to allow negative emotions in your mind while at these engagements, you can control the emotions or you can control the environment and leave.
  24. I typically wake up at 5:30, workout 6:30 - 7:30 and eat breakfast by 8. I do well with a plan so my plan is breakfast at 8 AM, lunch at 12 PM and dinner at 5:30 PM. I don't deviate from that unless it's an emergency or a really weird day that doesn't follow any normal routine.
