    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

    Starting today Jan 8th

    Hey Everyone, I’m Monica and decided to change my eating habits today. I bought the Whole30 book via a friend, who has had great results from this lifestyle change mentally and physically. I have never imagined a life without Milk and cheese. I will need a lot of support from people, and will also return the favor if you are on this journey as well. Good luck to everyone, and Happy New Year!
  3. Hey everyone, it´s the first time I am here and I am so excited for having this forum for support on my whole30 experience. I am on day 7 and the truth is that it´s been feeling a little lonely. Well, I´d like to ask you for suggestions with the following issue: The thing is, I come from binge eating. This new year 2019 I am letting go of disordered eating of any kind, and I really really really want to change my relationship to food into a healthy, loving and peaceful one, and doing whole30 is the first step of my plan towards achieving that resolution. It has been great so far, and I feel that if I keep doing this till I completely get used to it so much is gonna change. I am making a menu, a mealplan every week and I have promised myself that I will keep making weekly mealplans and sticking to them for the rest of the year. This is challenging my patience, discipline, boredom feeling and also my impulses and anxiety. I wanna get in control of my choices 100%. So I would like to ask you for advice or any suggestions you may have for me to stop cooking and eating with anxiety. Today I snacked and it´s something I don´t wanna do cause binge eating is all about "let me have a little bit of this, a little bit of that". I simply wanna stick to what I plan. Learn to wait for food. Learn to cook patiently, even enjoying it. For example, today I went grocery shopping for the next week, which took me around 3 hours. I bought some grapes and felt like having some to taste their sweetness on the way home. By the time I got home I was moody and it had already been 5 hours since I had had breakfast, and still had to cook my lunch. Pfff, and I needed to tidy up all the groceries before. So I started doing that and ended up eating some hazelnuts I had bought for a snack for some other day I really needed them, I haven´t contained myself. And I knew I was gonna eat lunch soon but I still had to cook it. So while eating those things I was standing, and cooking fast and the kitchen was still kinda messy. I didn´t take it with peace and calm and that made me feel messy too. By the time I got to eat I found myself devouring my lunch, maybe overeating a little bit without feeling myself too much and in a hurry. So do you know any ways in which I can make my eating experience a peaceful, slow and loving one in my relatinship with food? Thank you so much
  4. Hey everybody! So I discover this forum now, I am a bit late but I started my first whole 30 a week ago. Why? Just because it felt right and that way I had a few days to prepare and not rush into it, and because on january 28 is my 23rd birthday and finishing whole30 and checking any results seems like a good gift, as well as having taken the first of many steps to bettering my relationship with food. It´s been a week so far and I am doing well. How are you? Let me know about you in the comments, or tell me if you´re also in day 7 by any chance I am from Spain and I don´t think here this is a very popular programm xP Cheers. I am looking for some support or anyone who wants to share their experience over here along with mine, even if we are on different days
  5. Hello, I'm psyched to start my first whole30 in January. I am a member already at Yogateket.com and I saw that a program was created to combine the two. I meant to start a whole30 for a long time and now I have no excuse. So nice I found this forum and happy to be here. So who is in for the January whole30+yoga program? Isabell
  6. Hi Folks, I've seen this commented elsewhere but wanted to dedicate a post to the Bullet Proof Coffee bonanza (http://www.bulletproofexec.com/how-to-make-your-coffee-bulletproof-and-your-morning-too/). I'd love to know: 1) Have any of you tried it? Naturally on the Whole30 we would only used clarified butter/ghee. 2) Can we make this Whole30 legal by considering the ghee in the coffee to be our Meal 1 serving of fat? Then just eat protein and veggies to complete the meal? Thanks!
  7. New here...I will start on December 1st. I will start no sugar today because mentally, I am just ready. I have been a sugar addict for years and I have recently discovered that I am definitely sensitive to milk products. I tried Paleo a few years ago, as prescribed by my doctor, but I just didn't keep up on it, especially after I had met my soon to be ex-husband. He never wanted me to be healthy (he definitely wasn't) and It was so hard to fight for that. I have decided that now being in a safe place, I am going to break free from not just the bondage he and sugar had me under, but to finally take control and stop making excuses. I am ready to slay the sugar dragon and move forward. A friend of mine did the Whole30 for 100 days and has made it a lifestyle to help her kiddos and they did it as a family and saw drastic changes. I'm ready to make the drastic change for my body. I'm nearly 300 pounds, biggest I've ever been and I use to be healthy and an athlete, till college and a back injury. Just sick and tired of being sick and tired. I have goals and dreams and my body isn't going to be the result of those things unanswered. I'm ready to do this!
  8. Folks, What's the consensus on packaged foods that have the perfectly compliant ingredient list until *dun dun dun!!* you see "Contains less than 2% of the following...." and proceeds to list "cane sugar" "deroxide-foxide-ix" "soy lechitan" etc... Ahem...many Applegate products.
  9. Hello. I would like to share my experience with Whole30 and see if anyone is feeling the same as me. I have been compliant, however I have had a smoothie (with added fats) sometimes because I've been too sick to eat. I mostly had them in the first 2 weeks then stopped. Then I had one about 2 days ago as I was ill and could barely eat. I started whole30 as I have very severe fatigue and issues with dizziness and motion sickness. I had no digestive issues other than little episodes of gas like anyone, and I tended towards being a little constipated at times. Since day 4 of whole30, my digestion has been a mess and it gets worse and worse. The last few days have been 24 hour diarrhoea and stabbing abdominal pain like trapped gas. The diarrhea doesn't relieve it. Sometimes I go 5x a day. Also as far as my symptoms I started whole30 for, they are even worse. I am so exhausted I cry every single day and feel like my life will never regain any normality. I can barely go for a walk and work is torture. I was overweigjt but fairly fit before whole30 and could walk and jog. But I did have long term fatigue but I didn't feel like I was dying like this. I have been tested for lots of things and my iron dropped a bit and my thyroid stimulating hormone is a bit low indicating my thyroid is over functioning, but my thyroid hormone levels are fine and negative autoantibodies. I am seeing my GP, a naturopath, acupuncture, psychologist. Before this I had never even paid for a massage, but I feel I am having an extreme health crisis. I'm contemplating quitting my job and not getting out of bed anymore. I have no idea what is happening to me. The digestive issues have been the cherry on top and I fear they won't stop when I stop whole30. I've never had digestive problems like this. As I said, my meals have not been always perfect template (smoothies, sometimes skipping meals) as I'm so ill and doing what I can to survive at this point. I also do rotating roster shift work which makes my whole life hard and is part of my fatigue issues. But I try to follow recommendations otherwise and am eating plenty of veg, appropriate protein and plenty of fat from avocado, olive oil, home made mayo. I have stopped eating ghee, nut butter 2 days ago, as I never ate nuts before, very rarely. I've stopped having eggs apart from the bit of raw egg in my mayo. I was having a lot before, but I ate a lot of eggs in my regular duet too. I still eat 3 serves of fruit instead of the recommended 2, because my tummy wants fruit and plain foods, not fatty rich foods. Example of my common meals lately would be minced chicken breast and zucchini burger patty with roast potato/pumpkin, a salad and home made mayo. Or mackerel fish with pan fried potato hash brown patties (grated white or sweet potato) and a salad with mayo and a bit of hot sauce. Or beef chow mein style - cooked with cabbage, carrot, curry powder, garlic etc on top of sweet potato noodles. Always compliant ingredients and seasonings. I make all my own food. I never had an issue with hot sauces, curry powder or anything lije that before and mainly eat modified versions of what I ate before. Only other thing that's increased on the diet for me is root vegetables like potato, sweet potato, pumpkin, squash and extra use of garlic/onion powder for flavour. Whole30 has been such a bad experience, I feel like I'm having a physical breakdown. Has anyone else felt this and did you find the cause?

    Knee and joint pain

    Hello Whole30 fam. This is my first whole30. During week 2, on day 10 specifically, I started to experience pain in my left knee. Two days later the pain was in both knees (by day 12). The pain has not subsided, although better on some days, and I am currently on day 22. to better explain the pain, it is in the knee joint and just above the knee. It hurts to the touch and when I lay down, but walking and mobility and standing are all more comfortable positions. I have never had knee problems and have maintained an active lifestyle, working as an electrician and taking 3-4 metabolic conditioning (metcon) at my gym per week. This pain has caused me to take some time off from the gym to try to heal a bit (sad). The only other joint pain I experienced was in both my hands, which lasted at most 3 days, which occurred at about day 15. I do not take any medications, or have any medical conditions. However, to try to help with this I have started taking MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane, Jarrow brand) and Bromelain (Solaray brand). I continue to take tumeric and magnesium, which I've maintained for the past year or so. I am alternating ice and heat as well. Can anyone offer any idea of why this is happening, and especially taking so long to recover? Anyone experience anything similar? Open to any and all ideas and feedback. Thank you! - JohnKnee C :(
  11. Hello everyone! My name is Jennifer & Im living in Lakewood, CO. I am new to actually using this forum but have done Whole 30 5 times since 2010. I did my first one as a group challenge in my first ever CF gym back home in Upstate NY and now use it when I feel like my emotional attachment gets into a serious relationship with food without me realizing it! I am a Crossfit coach as a side hustle (since 2011) and work in marketing for a lawyers office by day. I just started another round on the 18th in prep for a weightlifting meet I am going to be in April and am sick of going off the rails only to try to cut 2 weeks out from my meet. It sets me up for a poor performance (shocking) and a loss of confidence on the platform because I drop 5lbs the day before and letheragy is an enemy of cutting weight for meets. My emotions go hand in hand with my eating habits and I am horrible with anxiety and stress. I haven't been doing so well! Hence why I am here! I had set a date for the 18th long before I got to the point where I felt ready to do W30 again but of course the universe gave me the perfect timing. The Sunday before the 18th I was crying in my mirror staring at my reflection and the jeans that hurt my thighs from weight gain. Now, i am not overweight in gov terms. We all know how it feels to be very comfertable in your own body vs. feeling like you jumped into the movie "Men in Black" and put someone else's body on. That was me. Feeling like someone different was staring back at me and I didn't like it. I'm here to change. I am in this alone right now and would love to know if there is anyone in here that resides in Colorado that may want to be my accountability buddy. I can't wait to connect!

    False Starts

    So I have gotten into a really bad habit of whole30 "false starts" where I will go a day or five being whole30 compliant and cave when things get emotionally difficult for me. I am an emotional junk food eater and when I tell myself I cannot have bread or sugar, I run to them when the going gets tough. My first goal is to rid my house of all my trigger foods, but I have basically reverted to all my old comfort foods and I'd like some advice to get out of this rut. I need to heal my body. I don't want "false starts" to be the norm for me anymore, I want to be consistent. Anyone know what could help?
  14. I just got back from the store with the healthiest looking grocery cart O think I have ever had. I'm both excited and nervous for this to begin. Nervous to step on the scale tonight to get my initial number and afraid I'll let myself down. However my overwhelming feeling is excitement and a reset.
  15. Jan 31 was my Day 30, and I have lost 11.2 lbs!!!! Super happy! It has been tough but one look at the weighing scale at the end of my first Whole30 month, I forgot all the miseries... I m doing it again for sure!

    Allergies

    Hello, This is a two part question. #1 Has anyone experienced an onset of allergies while on whole30, when never having them before. (I've been on whole30 for 8 months now) the past two months I have been miserable with symptoms. #2 I love whole30 and do not want to stop, so does anyone have any ideas to elevate the allergy symptoms.
  17. Hi All! New to whole30 and currently on day 9 and nothing appeals. I know smoothies are a nono but i needed to eat something. Nuts, nut butters all bleh. I assume this happens to people but i feel more uninspired than i did during the first week. Any suggestions? thanks!

    Anyone want to start 4/20??

    I'm looking for a few (or one??) person to join me in a whole30 but I don't really want to wait until next Monday to begin... anyone??
  19. Hi guys, I began the Whole30 15 days ago in hopes of restoring my digestive health. I suffer from daily chronic diarrhea and have for about 2 years now. I can’t pinpoint a direct cause (i.e antibiotics, food sensitivities etc) because it really just started out of nowhere. Occasionally I’ll have a perfect poop (last one was on 07/04/17) but other than that I wake up every day and immediately feel a relatively urgent need to poop. It’s always loosely formed with visible bits of undigested food. I’ve wondered if I have IBS but I don’t feel any stomach pain or cramping during the day. It seems like my problem might me psychosomatic as in my brain is triggering me to evacuate my bowels directly upon waking rather than my digestive tract signaling to my brain when it’s ready. I’ve noticed little to no improvement and I’m two weeks in. Do I just need to give it time? Has anyone been through a similar situation and did the Whole30 work for you? I guess I’m just feeling a little discouraged and I don’t want to be popping Imodium on a daily basis. Thank you in advance.

    Whole30 First Timer

    Hello Everyone! I am so happy this forum exists so I can run to any of you, read stories and share my experiences. (I hope I am using this correctly) I will be starting my journey this week, I am finishing The Whole30 30 day guide and educating myself as much as possible before I begin. I am very excited....but also TERRIFIED! Is this normal? I just want to succeed. I have struggled A LOT my entire life with my weight. I am a 25 year old woman, and I am at my heaviest starting weight (278.3 and I am 5'9"). My relationship with food is not "unhealthy", I just do not know how to eat. I will usually skip breakfast, have a small lunch and binge when I get home, which is not ok by any means. I also have not exercised in months. I wish I could just tell myself to get up and do things but I struggle greatly. Has anyone else been in my shoes? I am reaching out to you, any of you for support. I am excited to do this, but what else can I use as a push other than what I WANT?
  21. Call me Phoenix. I started the Whole30 on March 17th 2018. It was absolute hell. I've never had my body feel worse. For 10 straight days I had a pounding headache/migraine, I had no strength in my body, I couldn't sleep, and I just felt completely miserable. I could hardly move around the house. Granted, all I had been eating was carbs, dairy, sugar and more sugar, so I knew stopping it all at once would be harsh, but I felt it had to be done. I didn't except the fallout to be so hard on my body; that was a wake up call. Then day 10 hit, and I don't know if it was some new medication I started for anxiety or what, but s--- hit the fan. I went from following the plan completely for 10 days to running out to the store for some lemon juice and coming back with a handful of candy bars, 4 slices of pizza from Pizza Pipeline, and devouring half a carton of Tillamook ice cream with 2 cans of diet and caffeine free soda. And I hated myself for it, because I instantly felt better. My headache went away, I got my energy back, and I've slept better last night and today than I can remember sleeping in weeks. But then the reality hit me. I was 10 days in to the Whole30, and I threw it all down the drain. And my cravings for junk are worse than today than they were yesterday. At my heaviest, I was 280lbs. Before my binge yesterday, I was at 225lbs. This morning, I was back up to 230lbs. Is that even possible? Did I eat 5lbs worth of crap? I'm totally devastated. Not only do I have to start over completely (Yes, I absolutely have to start over 100%) I have no idea what made me break so badly yesterday, but the worst of it is, IS THAT I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT I WAS DOING. No one forced pizza down my throat. No one scooped ice cream into the bowl for me. I did it all on my own. And I hate myself for it. This time last year I was down to 170lbs. Long story short, calling off my wedding 3 days before did not help matters, and I spent a good 4 months in bed crying, depressed, and eating everything within sight, which rocketed me up to 250lbs. But I don't want to live like this anymore! I don't want food to control me or my life! I am desperately, desperately ready to get over this garbage and eat well. I've made sure my meals were balanced with the whole 30... good fats, a fair amount of protein, lots of veggies and some fruit with a meal, and as much water as I can remember to make myself drink. But for some reason, I AM HUNGRY ALL THE TIME NO MATTER HOW MUCH I EAT and I hate it. I did finally go to the doctors yesterday to have them test my thyroid and hormone levels, because intense hunger is something I've been dealing with for years now. But I feel like I let myself down so badly. I mean come on.... I had made it 10 whole days!!!! My plan is water fast Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (if I feel like I'm dying I'll have a small amount of veggies and protein once a day) and then to restart my Whole30 on April 1st. I'm just hoping that I wont have to deal with the miserable fly like symptoms I got the first week I tried. Do any of you have any advice for getting through this? And for not feeling like a total failure when you mess up? I know what the rules are, and this wasn't a tiny slip. It was a major one. And starting over is the only choice I have if I'm serious about really doing this. But man. I just feel worthless. My goal weight is 130-140lbs. I just want to be there by this time next year. So why do I feel like I won't make it?
  22. Hi! So I’m on day 25. For the first three weeks I felt awesome (once i got past the sugar cravings) Headaches went away, stomach issues ceased and I had better energy. NOW, I’ve had a headache for three days that send me home from work, constant upset stomach and bowel movements, disgustingly gassy and bloated. I was eating healthy before I started but did it to address some stomach pain but now it’s all back and worse than before. I’m a fitness specialist so I have monitored and eliminated FODMAP culprits but I keep feeling worse and worse . Stinks even worse because I was feeling so good until the three week mark.
  23. Hello! I'm Katelynne and I'm 24. I first did Whole30 back in December with my mom and sisters. While they experienced other symptoms (headaches, tiredness, joint pain) I didn't really have any negative side effects. The main reason for me doing Whole30 was to try and lose as much weight before my scheduled tummy tuck procedure in January. With Whole30, I lost 10lbs in a month and totally became hooked! My family and I planned to do Whole30 once every few months to cleanse ourselves and get our systems back on track. I had my tummy tuck in January, where another 9lbs of skin was removed. I had some bumps in the road, mainly fluid that hasn't fully gone away, and a terrible yeast infection. Because I was on antibiotics, an anti-yeast infection medication and was just mainly eating cereal and crackers during my recovery, I was totally on board with doing Whole30 again with my family and we started two weeks ago. I wanted to clear out my body of any toxins and start spring off with my health on track. My surgeon was actually the one that pointed out I had a rash, which appeared about 3-4 days into Whole30. I didn't think much of it at the time, but over the days it got worse. My surgeon and I believed at first the rash was due to the silicone cream I started using on my scars, and I thought it was mainly because it had a metal ball roller on it. But I haven't used the scar cream in a week and the rash has gotten worse. What started out as a small rash around my scars (lower abdomen) has moved up on my abdomen and is also now on mu back and upper thighs. I took Benadryl and Cortizone several times and the rash has not gone away. The rash is a series of smallish light red dots (some bigger then others) and does NOT really itch unless I touch it. I only just heard of detox rashes--could this be it? I like being on Whole30 but I just don't know if I should stop and wait a few more months until my body has fully healed from my surgery, and when I know for sure all my medications are completely out of my system. This scar is going on for 2 weeks and is only getting worse with all my efforts, except going off Whole30. Also does anyone have any tips to help get rid of the rash? Thanks for all of your time and help! I appreciate it greatly!
  24. Although there isn't an official 7 day meal shopping list, I created my own for you to use with the new Whole30 book if you want. This is for one person. I was unable to find recipes for slow cooker beef brisket and plantains in the new Whole30 book. So I used the Braised Beef Brisket recipe instead. You will have to find a pan fried plantain recipe and add those ingredients to the list. I hope this helps. Enjoy!Shopping List for 7 day meal plan.pdf If you're having trouble downloading the shopping list, try this link instead.

    Second Day!

    Hello there! My name is Victoria Bussell and today is only day two of the Whole30 for me. It has been extremely hard for me already. I am not the biggest fan of meat, unfortunately. Any advice in that area?
