  1. Hi... I'm sure this has been answered numerous times but I'm in such a fog and so much pain I don't have the patience to search... sorry, just being honest. I am on day 13 after a re-start and am having the WORST fibro flare of my life! I am literally bound to bed or the couch and everything hurts--especially my back, shoulders, and neck. I also have raging headaches that feels like a vice-grip is attached to my head! Anyone out there suffering from fibro flares and headaches at this phase of the program? Your help is appreciated.

    Such a failure

    My breakfast consists of 2 egg cups (zucchini, red pepper, red onion, turkey bacon) and arugula with a little olive oil. Lunch this week is tuna mixed with sun-dried tomatoes, red bell pepper, artichokes hearts, olives, hearts of palm, olive oil, and pepperoncinis. I also have a pluot or nectarine. I am pretty active during the day (8th grade PE teacher) and then usually work out after. Maybe I'm not eating enough? Not sure how to adjust. Thanks for your help.

    Such a failure

    So I am seriously struggling with staying Whole 30 for more than a week. By week 2, my Sugar Dragon, and all his friends, are breathing fire down my neck. I eat a great breakfast full of protein, healthy fats, and vegetables, and then an equally comparable lunch but by 3:00, all those desires to EAT ANYTHING are knocking at my door. So frustrating!!! If I try to ignore it, I find myself chewing on my fingers and/or the inside of my mouth which is also not healthy. Am I doomed? Will I ever beat this thing that keeps setting me back and putting me back on day 1 over and over again? HELP!!!!
