    Happy Day 30 to all who have stuck it out with me this month! What's your plan for reintro? I'm doing a slow roll--- I already know from my previous 2 whole30s what I need to avoid. Here's hoping now I can put it in to practice and only make exceptions for "worth it" foods or occasions.

    It's so funny you mention this! I just had a dream last night that I took my son to Chick-Fil-A and indulged in nuggets and then CRIED that I messed up on day 8! So relieved it was a dream!

    Hi, Rachelle! My phone didn't notify me of your response until now! Not sure why- anyway-- YAY! I'm glad you're excited! Enthusiasm is contagious, glad to be here with you!

    Hi, asharn!  Nice to "meet" you. Finished up my grocery shopping for week one-- will prep lots of goodies tomorrow. I saw your pother post about brunch on St Patty's day-- I'm sorry to tell you most restaurants I have encountered use soybean oil, so are out for whole30. I wish you luck, though!! When in doubt, bring your own homemade salad dressing and order a salad with only veggies. Or, use olive oil and a squeeze of lemon and a dash of salt if you forget your own dressing. I have spent many phone calls speaking to restaurant managers about things-- it is easiest to call ahead of time so you are prepared.

    Hi gang! I'm starting my 3rd whole30 on March 11. I'd love it if you'd join me in this thread so we can help keep each other accountable!!
    My first whole30 was wildly successful, but pregnancy and new mom-hood took me back to old habits--
     my 2nd whole30 did well, but I feel like I was just "going through the motions" to get to day 31.
    This time, I'd like good habits to stick! I've learned so much-- gluten and soy are definitely not my friends, but I've let too much soy seep back into my diet (soybean oil! It's everywhere!!)  
     
    Today I'm prepping by making instant pot beef broth and ghee. Don't want to be too overwhelmed with food prep on day 0 like I was the first 2 times! 
    Looking forward to "meeting" some accountability buddies!

    Hi, Patty! glad you joined us in this thread.
     
    I have found I'm doing a more "slow roll" type of reintro this time around. On the weekends, we've been getting together with friends and I've just been eating whatever I want. Seems to be OK, some bloating and crabbiness, but nothing too bad. All week last week I was strict whole30 and today and tomorrow as well. I do want to isolate the reintro of legumes as I know they're a trigger for me. I'm curious if some types of legumes are OK or if they all treat me equally. So, I'm going to try peanuts on Wednesday and see how my body does.

    Legumes are actually my biggest trigger! I know soy in particular can lead to excess estrogen production.... and I have endometriosis which is indicative of too much estrogen in the system. So-- that's my short answer for why legumes may not be the healthiest choice for everyone.

    Well I had pizza today, stomach is not happy!  I’m thinking I’ll start another round on the 19th.  Definitely still having a hard time knowing what to do with myself.  Going to eat pretty close to compliant next week.

    Since you had rice, now it is recommended (if you are doing the fast track reintro) to go back to whole30 for 2-3 days and see how you feel from eating the rice. Then, pick something else to reintroduce. Hope that helps give you a little more guidance!!

    Hey, everyone!! We're here! How's day 31 going for everyone? It's surreal to be here as I'm eating Whole30 all day today, but have a date with my husband and a glass of wine later tonight! What is everyone else trying out today?
