  1. My husband and I have decided we need to get healthy. We have several friends at church who have gone through whole30 with great success. We are a busy professional couple with a pack of kids and lots of activities. It’s so easy to make poor food choices with a busy schudule and readily accessible fast food. We don’t want a diet, we want a life whole30 is part of the changes we are making. Wish us luck. We would love any tips/encouragement or whole30 buddies.

    Hello Whole30 Folks! I am Natalie. I'm 27 years old and I'm from Fresno CA. Today is my first day ever on Whole30. I'm excited but also a little nervous. In April of 2013 ago I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression and started taking medication (an SSRI) to treat it. Fast forward to now, after being on and off several SSRIs, my weight and health have declined. I went from weighing a healthy 140 lbs to 209 lbs. I have developed prediabetes, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, hypothyroidism, and just feel generally "blah." Some of the weight gain is due to a change in lifestyle - going from walking 4 miles a day in college to sitting in a cubicle 40 hours a week - but I think most of the weight gain has been because of the medications. I am still taking an antidepressant because the anxiety and depression are still there, and it only gets worse as I feel physically worse and worse. I have tried so many ways to lose weight in the past with little to no results. In each case, I have gained back what I lost and put on even more. I am at my heaviest weight ever. It's disheartening, to say the least. As hard as it is for me to admit, I know that I have an unhealthy emotional relationship with food. My goal is to heal that relationship and find other ways to soothe myself when I'm sad or lonely or bored. I am hoping and praying that Whole30 is the answer to my problems. I have faith that if I stick with it and focus on the long-term benefits, then I will be successful. I'm looking forward to meeting others on this journey with me! xoxo

    Whole 30 DAY 1 - November 9

    It isn't the 1st of the month, or after the new year. It is just a random day in the Month of November. Yes, I know it will interfere with Thanksgiving, but I am OK with that. (You can eat pie any day of the year) I bought my WHOLE30 book along with "It Starts With Food" over 2 months ago, and have tried and failed about 5x since trying to start the Whole30. I did get married in September and honeymooned shortly after in Italy. I now have no more excuses! So this time I am putting my all into completing the next 30 days. That means being involved with online community, listening to healthful minded podcasts daily, and prepping food throughout the week. Any suggestions, feedback, or working with anyone else starting today will be helpful. Thanks! Jackie

    First Day of My First Whole30

    I actually started yesterday, but what's an extra day of health? :-) My sister did this back in October, and is planning to do it again. She's the one who convinced me to try it, but she's dragging her feet now, lol! I'm here mostly for health and energy benefits, though I'll take any weight loss that comes with it. I just turned 50 and I have a 9 year old son, so I've got to get as healthy as pssible for the long run. I'd love to find some like-minded friends here; I think we'll be that much more successful if we support each other. Breakfast was a small sweet potato and 2 poached eggs. I may have a half grapefruit shortly. Coffe with no sugar - I thought it would be disgusting, but I threw it over ice, and it was surprisingly easy. Acid reflux is kicking in, but I hope that'll go away with a little time. How about you?
  5. Hello everyone, I plan on starting my first whole 30 days tomorrow. I am excited to start this so I can change my eating habits and become more healthy in the process, because I love snacking, I love candy/chocolate and I also tend to stress especially in school with exams/homework and being up late studying :/ but hopefully I will be able to eliminate my bad eating habits and replace them with more healthier choices. I'm happy I found out about this form and I look forward to getting more healthy! I wish everyone all the best P.S who else is planning on starting tomorrow (October 13)? All the best, Irene

    Day 1. Take 2.

    Hello all! After spending a month debating whether I should try the Whole 30, I have finally given in. My diet has been on a crazy roller coaster the past six months and my body hates me for it. I was a vegetarian for almost 2 years (for ethical reasons) but never felt quite healthy enough, so I came back to the dark side around the holidays. Around the same time I started to feel extreme pain, turns out that was my gallbladder telling me it didn't feel like working any more, so I went ahead and had that removed. Dr's orders were to stay on an extremely low fat diet for the next few months. That did not happen. I have been very rebellious in my eating habits which has led to 10 extras lbs and constant discomfort. Whole 30 appeals to me because of the considerable health benefits. I have been putting up with constant heartburn, GI discomfort, and gas pain (that was supposed to go away with my gallbladder) for the past few months. As well as lack of energy, but that's been going on since my vegetarian days. My main concern is the fat intake of this diet, i know many people lose significant weight but i just don't get it! I'm scared I am gonna be another 10 lbs heavier by the end of June! Also, I'm scared of the pain that I am going to be in from all that fat. I use a calorie counting app and the amount I'm taking in astounds me. Also, I am excited to see what difference no grains or legumes are going to have on me since I am Hispanic and rice and beans are eaten in my house almost EVERY DAY. Any ways yesterday was my unofficial "Day 1" but around 9 pm my body was screaming at me for sugar and I devoured a Cherry Pop tart AND a few Doritos in 10 seconds flat! It was delightful/shameful and set off my heartburn. So today is my official Day 1 and its going pretty well( eventhough it's only 8pm), I don't have any heartburn or pain which is such a RELIEF! And I already feel less bloated or swollen. YAY! So here goes nothin'! I have quite the challenge ahead of me since it is my birthday month, so no drinks, cake those ominous/delicious Pop tarts lurking in the pantry. But I think I can do it. -Samantha
