    Jmb369 got a reaction from Laura of The Great White North in 2nd Time Around Starting Dec 27th   
    @Laura of The Great White North @kirbz @littleyellowdiary Just checking back to say I made the decision to begin on January 6, in stead of December 27. I was simply not mentally ready, plus we host a holiday Open House every year on the Sunday between Christmas and New Year. I was mostly compliant, but "mostly" is good enough only for Food Freedom, not for doing a Whole 30. The extra ten days to prepare will make it easier for me. And yes, I do eat plenty of fat. I suspect the hunger pangs come from shifting the proportions of macro nutrients. You three (four) or doing great. Keep it up!

    I was thinking of starting more traditionally on January 1 (or 5th) but I'd like to connect with some people who have done it before, so I'd like to join you and begin on DEcember 27.  I've done two complete Whole 30s and had several false starts over the past four years. I need a total reset -- just had a flare-up of my AI symptoms, plus my weight has been steadily creeping up over the past year. I did my first one in 2015.
    I do menu planning, and have for many years, but I always have easy meals for those days when I don't feel like following my planned menu. Our house has very few non compliant foods, but I can always find something, including over-indulging in nuts or dried fruit! I am retired and share life and space with the second love of my life whom I met 10+ years ago. He can eat just about anything, but he's willing to support me in this, AGAIN!
    Many of my favorite recipes are from Whole 30 and It Starts With Food, but I also use many recipes from Paleo Mom. The biggest problem I anticipate is eating enough food to not feel hungry, and also to get past my 4:00 pm slump. That's been around for many years, pre-Whole 30, and does not appear to be related to when I eat lunch or what I have to eat. It just is a fact of my metabolism!
