  1. Hi Guys, I just started Whole30 for the first time today after finishing a 3-day cleanse and am excited to get a couple of accountability partners - if anyone is interested! I'm committed and looking forward to Day 2. Thanks everyone!
  2. Hello, everyone— I’m Rhonda, but I usually go by RK online. I am a Whole30 beginner, and for me this is Day 5– I started on June 10. One of the reasons I decided to start right now is that I live in Denver, Colorado, and June is apricot season! I am *demented* about apricots and peaches, two of our local specialty fruits. However, a sudden late frost at the beginning of May probably wiped out 80% of this year’s peach crop... alas. I am doing Whole30 because my weight isn’t budging much at all, and in the last six months my BP has gone up into the “borderline/high” range,
  3. Scared, nervous, ready for changes. I feel like I’m not going to make it but I’m going to try! Prayers needed!
  4. I stared the whole30 on 1/5. I read the timeline in the whole 30 book and it said days 2 & 3 could feel like hangover days. I thought, how bad can it be? I had no idea. I woke up nauseous, couldn't eat all day, the the thought and smell of the food I made the day before made feel sick to my stomach, my head throbbed and my energy was in the toilet. But I did a little self care and rested a lot. Towards evening I was feeling a little more human so I took my dog for a walk and made my meals for the next day (holding my nose the whole time). But today (day 3) is much better. Small hea
  5. Hi! I'm Becca and I am new. I am committing to starting November 1 - and know that Thanksgiving is going to occur on my 28th day I have done WAY harder things (been a living liver donor/ had a hysterectomy), but it's a bout of unexplained hives that led my doctor to steer me toward this. I've been doing Beachbody portion fix for a year or so; I've had success, but I haven't really changed the way that I think about food, in the way that my first few days of reading Whole30 will probably lead me to.
  6. Welcome all newcomers, welcome back vets, and for those of you who never left...welcome to this post. I just wanted to pop in here and remind you all to take a deep breath before you dive into all the questions about what you can and can't have. The program guidelines are clear on what you can and can't have (grains, dairy, W30 muffins), but things get a little grey when people start talking about what you should and shouldn't have. Please don't over think think this. You don't have to address every food related issue you have, break every bad habit, and shun every food that gives you comfo
  7. Hi everyone! I’m new to this but I’m am so tired of being tired! I am uncomfortable in my body and just overall sluggish all the time. Oh, and oddly moody lately. What is making me the most nervous is the “reintroduction” period! How has that been for folks? I couldn’t find any info on this. Anyway, I’m committed to figuring out why I feel so junky. I’m sure it’s food related, considering all the garbage out in food these days! Looking forward to having a forum community for support and answer questions that come up along the way.
  8. Hey Everyone! This is my first time around. I am excited (and scared) to slay this sugar dragon! I know my 2 challenges will be that I am the only one doing this plan in my house of 4. Secondly, lunch is the most difficult to plan for as I am out of the house and sandwiches have been the staple. Sure would like to have a buddy. Thanks!
  9. Hi all! After lots of tummy issues since August, I’ve decided to commit to doing Whole30 for the first time. Im nervous because my birthday and Thanksgiving are this month. I’m also extremely scared of failing. I’m pretty sure that if I slip and have to start all over, I’ll just quit the program because I’ve tried every program under the sun for weight loss and nothing as worked. I’m excited to have this forum as a resource along with social media and YouTube. So this might be the game changer. No one is doing this with me so I’ll be looking for accountability and encouragement here. Here goes
  10. Hello, name is Deanna! Starting on Oct. 25..
  11. Hi! Im Kim. Im 42 and a single mom of a 7 year old boy and im around 230 lbs. Ive been reading the book and now im putting it out there. Im planning to start on September 1st. I have a feeling this might help a lot of areas in my life. Heres to new beginnings! Good luck on your journey!
  12. Just started Whole30 on October 1, 2019. My friends who've done this say they plan to have snacks, but I can't find anywhere in the main book, where it says anything about eating snacks. Please help!
  13. Hiya! I just started my first Whole30 yesterday. So far, so good. I'm a lacto-ovo vegetarian who doesn't eat eggs all that often (until now!). I don't eat any fish or meat, and have no desire to at this point. So I am not planning on modifying the Whole30 in and eating any non-compliant foods as written; it's going to be eggs, eggs, eggs, and more eggs! I will probably eat more nuts and seeds than is optimal for the omnivores, but don't intend to go crazy. I am not too worried that giving up dairy will be too difficult; I am going to find legumes and grains much, much more challenging. O
  14. Hi, I'm Jessica. I have been on a lot of trends and I find that strict things work well for me. I'm a first timer on Whole30. I do have a question. I work 3pm-8pm, get home around 8:15 and my husband and I go to bed at 10:30 or so. When should I have dinner? Is it okay to eat that late or should I just try to be full enough for the rest of the day before work? Just hard to justify eating a big meal right before dinner, hence why I usually reach for chips or a protein bar for "dinner."
