    Detox February - NEW

    I am starting the 'Whole30' adventure on February 1, 2019! I add the year because if not, I'll wait till next. I am looking forward to using this forum to connect with vibrant individuals (such as yourselves.) To share your life-hacks, experiences, and recipes. I am so nervous! I have an issue where sometimes I am ALL TALK. The 'Whole30' is my opportunity to finally do something that will better my life. I can't wait to connect. Whole30 will be a WHOLE lot better with you involved. I hope this is appropriate to post!? I am just reaching out to the tribe because I am going to need y'all. with so much gratitude -Ry
  2. Hi everyone ! I am Mélanie and I am almost 30. So to celebrate this I want to test whole 30 ! Just kidding ! To be a little more serious, I am (as you can read) a french girl who lives in Paris. I have stomac problems since a year and the doctors can’t find anything. So I want to do this program to see what is wrong with what I eat. I am starting the whole 30 on march because I want to be prepared (and because i am really turning 30 on february and I want to feel free to enjoy it the way I want). If you are french, let me know ! All the Brands and some products mentionned in the book can’t be find in France so I already have a TON of questions. Thanks for the help and for reading me, I hope you will understand me ! See you later around here Mélanie

    New Year, New Us!

    Hey! My family and I are starting our first ever Whole30 journey on January 1st! This is gonna be a big change for us and I’m definitely nervous at this point. Our munchkins are ages 5 and 2.5 and are picky eaters most of the time. My husband works shift work which adds another challenge to W30 for me. I have read part of the book, have multiple W30 cookbooks, have multiple friends that have done more than one round of W30, and we have a fantastic support system! I have been dealing with some hormone issues, PCOS, Endometriosis, and recently diagnosed with Adenomyosis as well. I am praying that Whole30 provides some much needed relief for myself along with more energy and less anxiety. My husband is hoping for more energy and better sleep. Smaller waists would be a bonus. Both kids have eczema and I’m hoping this will help clear up their skin and get them eating a little better. Can’t wait to get this party started!!

    Newbie Here!!

    Hello, everyone! Tomorrow I start Whole 30. Why tomorrow? Well, I'm a southern girl, Texas, and we always eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day. It's for good luck, don't you know! It's my first time and I'll be an avid reader and participant of this forum. I'll need all the help I can get! I want this to work so I can feel better, lose weight and influence my 48 year old son to do this so he'll feel better and lose weight! Whether it influences him or not, I'm doing this for me! I'm 71 in March and I would love to make my doctor proud! Have a blessed day, ya'll!

    Hello! Starting soon

    Hello! Just learned about this interesting reset. Going to start 1/7. Does anyone have advice?
  6. Hi Everyone, I'm doing my second one starting Thursday, November 1st. I'm a 42 year old father of 4 little ones and have been eating a ton of junk the past year or so. I'm really suffering the consequences and ready to turn things around. Also, my wife is struggling with some digestive issues (serious food restrictions) and I see this as my way of leading the way for her so it can be a little easier for her. I am a all-or-nothing personality so if I do this I'll do it 100% but if I slip even a little bit I'll crash and burn in flames of candy. Anyone out that want to join and get lots of positive support. I see there's a lot of women on here which is cool but there's got to be some men out there that want to start to improve their health. I'm thinking of doing a daily photo just to show the effects. Who's in?

    Starting 1st ever W30 Oct 29th

    Hi everyone! I've got the book, pre-started weaning off sugar/grains/off plan stuff. I'm meal and grocery planning. And my start date is Oct 29!

    Hi! New to the forum

    Hi! I'm here because my new doctor thinks it's a good idea. I did one round years ago, so she didn't have to explain to me the benefits of the program. It's been a bit, though, so I'll appreciate any information you'd like to share on tips, best practices, etc. Looking forward to feeling better, healthier.

    5th day into my first time

    Hey all! I'm exited about this journey. I love all the enthusiasm from the folks in the group. 5th day in, so far so good (ish). Only a few side effects (light headedness, insomnia, some fatigue) have cropped up, but I can push through those. Good luck everyone!
  10. Hey there! My name is Maura Beaver and I am starting on Monday, July 9th! This will be my first round of Whole30, and this type of program is so new to me. Recently, I have gained a decent bit of weight and I have been having some major allergy issues. I wake up with puffy eyes and lips and I'm breaking out in hives and eczema. We have tried patch testing at the allergist and concluded I'm at least allergic to nickel and gold. I feel like that's not the only issue because I haven't seen much of a change for the better. Now I'm considering the idea it might be food related. Also, let it be known I'm getting married at the end of October and would really like to get this taken care of! If you have any thoughts relating to the allergy topic or just some words of advice about the program, I would love to hear them. I LOVE to cook, so I don't think that will be hard to get used to. I do love cheese and bread - that will be hard to get used to... Thanks in advance, and I hope the program is going well for all of you! Maura

    Am I eating too much!

    Hi I am new to whole 30 I am on day 7. Yeah me!!! I am trying to be better about adding more fat to my diet cause I was very restrictive before. I read eating 3 large meals every 5 hours is better then 3 meals and snacking, also that eating fruit with nuts is better. Sooo my question I eating to much!! This was prepared knowing I was going to go for a 3-4 mile jog/walk. Here is what I ate for breakfast: 2 eggs with one yolk, 1/2 tbs of clarified butter, half of large avocado, 1 compliment sausage (160 calories) and a blood orange. After workout: 1 Apple with packet of almond butter (160 calories) Lunch: 1 sausage (160 calories) side salad, compliment 2 tbs honey mustard, compliant guacamole (120 calories) carrots, half small sweet potato dinner: Half spaghetti squash, ground turkey (handful) Brussel sprouts, half sweet potato possibly fruit with dinner* cravings are rough right now for sugar! My goal is to feel the best I can on whole 30 but I would also like to loose weight for my wedding in 8 months. Thank you all! Hope you have a beautiful day!!!

    New and starting to struggle

    Hi Everyone, I’m new to whole 30, only 5 days in. I chose to start the program because I want to lose weight, I want to clear up my skin and I’m getting married in 6 months and want to start this new chapter with better control of my life and habits. Things have been going really well, following the rules, I’ve been really positive and noticing a difference In how i feel but tonight my fiancé dropped a bomb on me that his work schedule is changing giving us only 1 day together during the week. This upset me especially since the wedding is 6 months out and he and I are planning together. This news depressed me and all I want is to eat carbs and sugar. I am a stress eater so it is killing me to know I can’t have a cookie or everything bagel to “settle my nerves”. Does anyone have tips or tricks? thanks! Christine
  17. Hello everyone! I start my whole30 tomorrow morning and I did some preparing today by shopping! I know sugar is not allowed in the whole30 (duh), but I'm a little confused on something... I was reading labels today at the store, and while sugar wasn't on the ingredient list, the nutrition label said it had sugar in it... so can I have the said item or not? For example, a can of Hannaford Tomato Sauce lists ingredients: "Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), Water, Less than 2% of: salt, onion powder, garlic powder, citric acid, natural flavors, dehydrated bell peppers" But in the label it says "Total Sugars 2g" ("Includes 0g Added Sugars) Is this just the natural sugars you get from tomatoes? Should I be more concerned with the ingredient list or the nutrition label (or both)? What if the label DIDN'T say "added sugars"? A few items were like this, so I didn't buy the product just in case (but will need them soon if I want to make what I have planned!) If this is a product I should stay away from, anyone have any recommendations for tomato sauce, tomato paste and canned diced tomatoes? (I live in New England). Also, is there a source/list of products you can scroll through/browse to see what is approved? Little about me: I don't drink coffee, and am considered a social drinker to alcohol and soda (not even once a week!) Bread, pasteries, and ESPECIALLY chocolate are my biggest mountains to climb. Any tips or advice is welcomed! Thanks for reading! ^^ -oh, and I know it's been answered (but can't find it) but is popcorn okay to have? I'm mainly talking about the Skinny Pop brand (the plain/original flavor in particular). I think I read the answer is no, but it was because of the butter in it (which the original does not)

    Newbie with a good start!

    Hi, I'm starting kinda fresh, after about 3 weeks of slowly weaning my way off stuff. The gulten, so far, seems to be the best thing I could have done for myself and my knees. I didn't realize the inflammation going on in the joints. Last week I started weaning from sugar, and think it's one of the things that will be challenging. I think the sugar, grains and soy will be the challenge just because of how they sneak into stuff. That was an amazing lesson to learn. Read the labels! I'm happy to get my body back on track, and lose the weight for myself, and not for any other reason. It makes my commitment and my resolve solid and strong. I've already lost some weight just trying to prepare for the day. I've slated my day this coming Thursday. I have a wedding a few weeks down the road, but know that I can hold my own and that I'll have plenty of support...believe it or not. This will be a great 30 days. I'm ready and glad I found a forum. Forums helped me quit smoking. I know they can be great places to hang when the going gets tough. I hope to meet a few of you, and I'll lend my support where and when it is needed. I have my Day By Day and am getting prepared. Hopefully, talk to some of you soon!
  19. I feel really confident that I can do this, it's just a matter of getting everything planned out! Eeeeek! Any suggestions? I'm pretty excited! Also, I'm a vegetarian, so if any fellow veggies would like to team up please let me know!

    Hello! This will be my first time and first round of whole 30. A good friend of mine asked me if I’d like to join her in what will be her second time around. She spoke highly of it so I immediately began to educate myself with the resources that whole 30 has put to offer. I will also be joined by my husband and I hope to get my son on board as well. It’s been a long time coming that I should be a better steward of my body and to love myself more. I hope to also learn self-discipline. Glad to meet you all!
  21. Just saying "HELLO" to my fellow Whole30ers and holding myself accountable by posting my introduction and my intent to start. Looking forward to life changes!! If anyone has any valuable getting started tips I'd greatly appreciate them! Best, Karla
  22. Hi!! I'm starting (AGAIN) on Monday, Feb 19th... I've tried Whole30 twice and failed. I felt so good during and am so mad at myself for not following through. I'm hoping to find another person who is starting on Feb 19th who will want to check in via email daily to help support and hold each other accountable! Let's do this!!
