    Home link

    I really wish, when you’re on the forum and you click the “home” link it sent you to the forum homepage, NOT the whole 30 main page. Because that makes no sense. I know it’s just a little thing but it drives me crazy! Especially because when you’re at the homepage there is no link to the forum.

    Vegetables for Breakfast

    I am having a hard time with this. The ONLY thing I can stand in the morning is root vegetables, really. Hit me with your ideas for incorporating vegetables in a breakfast meal. I usually have scrambled eggs with pico de gallo and an avocado or bacon. What vegetables would work with that? Keep in mind I hate kale, chard, and collard greens.

    Breakfast was 4 scrambled eggs and 1/2 an avocado and lots of pico. Coffee with nutpods creamer. I’m going to have to eat an extra serving of vegetables for meal 2 or 3 because I didn’t have time to make them this morning.

    Amazing Results!

    Since May 1, I’m down 20 lbs and one dress size. I’m completely off my reflux medication. My back pain has improved exponentially. I’m very excited about my results. I hit my goals and then some!

    I’m out of compliant food almost! had some oatmeal this morning, Mac & cheese (small portion) last night. I’ll be back to compliance on Monday.

    My 3x (24) clothes are now hanging off me. Thankfully, Torrid is having a 50% off clearance sale.

    I have officially gone down a full size. Just put on and buttoned a pair of size 20 jeans that had previously been in the back of my closet.

    Help! My mayo is too runny!

    You have to add the oil slowly as you’re blending it.

    Day 30! Just one more day. I can’t believe I did it!

    I ate potato wedges and tri tip for breakfast because I’m pretty sick of eggs. Probably going to do fish for lunch and chicken for dinner. With whatever random vegetables I have left.

    Two more days!
  15. Firstly, I’d like to point out that you’re not fat, and you don’t have a lot to lose. You’re already at a healthy BMI. Expecting the whole 30 to result in magic weight loss -when it’s not technically a weight loss program and you don’t have a lot to lose- is not realistic. You need to manage your expectations. If you are experiencing genuine bloating, see a professional. An actual MD.

    Day 27 I'm out of eggs so I had chicken breast and Brussels sprouts for breakfast. Also I was looking at old photos and I’m amazed at how much thinner my face looks. Look at this! before After

    Psychiatry meds

    I’m bipolar and I was hospitalized during my first real attempt at a whole 30. But I wasn’t on enough antidepressants for me and I’d just had a med change before I began. Ultimately in the end when I finally was near to completing a round (I’m on day 27) my moods improved exponentially. Just make sure to get your starchy carbs in every day, and be prepared to adjust meds. One thing I’ll say is I’d never recommend this for early sobriety. I’m a former opioid addict, I could NEVER have done this earlier.

    SchrodingersCat's Round 2 diary - starting 12 May 2019

    I feel you. I’m so sick of Whole 30 food right now. I literally cannot even look at an egg. I am sick of meat at every meal. I’m even a little sick of coconut. I’m looking forward to food freedom.

    Swapples and Beyond Meat

    Beyond meat is definitely not compliant, I wish. It’s not even very healthy tbh.
  20. I love y’all but I’m getting some gluten free grains for reintroduction. Sorry but for me, it IS about the pasta! Things that will stick: proper breakfast (though I cannot even look at an egg rn), the meal template in general and I’m not going back to drinking soda. I will not be reintroducing gluten or dairy.

    I am getting my groceries ready for reintroduction. I will not be reintroducing gluten or dairy. But my food freedom will include gluten free oatmeal, pasta, and a loaf of bread (that costs $10!). I also have beans and rice in my pantry.

    Day 26: I had egg salad for breakfast, yes by itself. I was so sick of eggs and whole 30 food, and I didn’t want to make a vegetable too. Lunch is pork chop and Brussels sprouts, dinner is marinated chicken and a baked potato with clarified butter.

    What do you drink?

    Passionfruit La Croix is my favorite.
