  1. I started a Whole 60 (or 67) on January 1. I was doing ok until some changes at work made me decide to relocate in the very near future. I'm getting very stressed about the upcoming move and all the plans I have to make. I'm back to not sleeping well. Better sleep was one of my best NSVs! And I also just want to eat all my feelings right now! I am so close to just throwing in the towel. I need some encouragement!

    Continuing On - The Next 30

    For the lovely ladies who have chosen to continue on with their Whole 30 (60? 90? 120?) Journeys! Mine started April 24, 2017, and will go for 120 days til August 21st. @EKuhl @aussiegal @Potion One ... Let's do this! Anyone else who is continuing their journey, no matter where you're at, please join!
  3. OK folks, here's our new thread for continuing and/or reintroduction. Let's keep rockin'!
  4. In the past, I have completed two Whole30s before and I absolutely loved them. I felt incredible and lost 4kg (8.8lbs) both times. However, I got very off-track after completing my second Whole30 and gained back the 8kg I had lost, plus a few extra kilograms to put me at my highest weight in a long time. I was feeling awful so I decided to do the programme again. Because I wanted to shed quite a bit of weight, I decided to do a Whole60 this time. I knew at the start that I shouldn't expect to lose 8kg in 60 days (even though I lost 4kg in 30 days) but I was hoping to lose about 6kg during my Whole60. Well, I've just finished and I lost a measly 3kg. I know it's not about weight and I should be focusing on non scale victories but I can't help feeling despondent, disappointed and confused. How could I lose less weight in 60 days than I did in 30 days? I have maintained the same exercise routine and ate the same foods as I did before. I have PCOS so I know that losing weight will always be challenging for me, but it really seems like something went wrong here. I'm feeling very down and wondering if anyone has any advice? Would really appreciate it!
  5. Hey everyone! I started my Whole30 on 10/19/15 and will be successfully completing it tomorrow! However, I am one of those folks who had terrible habits and a nasty carb addiction going in, and despite total commitment to the program and tweaks along the way suggested by members and moderators, I have not really "felt the magic" yet. I actually had planned a doing a Whole60 even before realized that my body was going to need more time to metabolically heal, but now I know it's a necessity! Anyone with me for 11/18? I have had a great group of members who have supported me and each other through our Whole30, and I would love to keep that going for my Whole60!
  6. I am currently on day 67, and I just know I've gained weight. At my weigh-in last week (day 61), I had gained about 2 kilos. I went on the whole30 in hopes of losing weight healthily. I am now 4 kilos away from my goal weight. I have followed the whole30 meal template as much as possible, and just eaten whenever hungry. Should I be counting calories again? Why am I gaining weight?! I am aiming for a whole90, but this process is very discouraging.
  7. Hi everyone!! Hope we have some people join the topic that aren't afraid to write about your ups and downs in the Whole30. I just completed my first on July 22nd with my husband. I did the reintroduction and now I want to get back on track. If I want to be completely honest I did not give up Truvia. I have been strictly adding it only to tea but that has been all I drink with water, of coarse. I know this is off plan BUT I wanted to be honest AND I still truly had leaps and bounds of improvements all around. I do/did not have many lbs to lose but was able to lose 6.2 on my first go. This most exciting part of this blogging is seeing how my fellow participants are succeeding too and with that sometimes we have some issues that makes it nice to have others to talk to about. I really hope we have some peeps join our group so we can do this together and share our experience, strength and hopes here. I look so forward to meeting everyone! Let's start today!! All emotions are welcome!!
  8. Background: First W30 completed July 21. Weaned my 14 month old towards the end of June. Began training for a marathon June 28th. Life Before Whole 30: I ate what I thought was healthy...a lot of fruits and veggies but also relied heavily on grains! I was a carb addict, partly because I thought that was what I needed to improve my running performance. I ran my first half-marathon in April and averaged 15-20 miles per week. Problem: During the W30 challenge I noticed my pants were falling off of me..woohoo a NSV! However, I seemed to have developed a "mummy tummy" and almost look like I'm 3 months pregnant again. I did full body measurements and there was really no change there either, which seemed odd. Full disclosure--I have not done well with the no snacking and have found myself reaching for the nuts and raisins a little too often. Typical day: 6-8h of sleep. I run early in the morning, usually by 7:00am, averaging 15-20 miles per week. M1: 3 eggs unless it's a long run day, I usually eat a hard boiled egg with some guac. Post run I'll have protein and sweet potato or butternut squash. M2: a salad filled with veggies and some form of protein, M3: protein and veggies Has anyone had a similar experience? I'm not sure whether to attribute the weight gain to weaning, or diastis recti, or training, or snacking or if I need to shoot for a Whole 60 instead.
  9. I just finished my first Whole30. Before Whole30, I ate very healthy, very little processed foods, mostly home made everything, little to no salt, a lot of veggies and fruit, lean meat and whole grains. I did the Whole30 to support my husband who has chronic sinus issues. Now that its over, I feel like I am not sure if I notice any real changes. I am nursing a 5 month old and my weight loss (2.4lbs) was a bit less than what I was losing the few months (about .75 to 1 lb a week) before but consistent enough. I am almost back at my pre-pregnancy weight (3 lbs away) so I think its partially because there is less weight to lose at this point. My goal is to get back down to 122 and stay there without counting calories and feeling deprived. I also feel like life with 2 kids under 2.5 kinda made it more challenging for us to see the real differences like tons and tons of energy and sleeping like a baby etc. My husband wants to extend the Whole30 longer to see if it helps with his chronic sinus problems but I don't know if its worth it. I feel basically the same as I did before and although I am definitely consuming more calories, I am not feeling like I am flowing with Tiger Blood and I am not the skinniest ever so I don't know, is it worth it to extend this longer. I know I probably ate too many nuts weeks 2 and 1/2 of week 3 but I have tried to keep my nuts to a minimum but it's hard to find easy foods to eat on the go. I have definitely changed, less snacking (although with nursing, the afternoon snacking has been impossible to give up) and I can enjoy black coffee now, which is huge but I feel like I still can't grasp the use fat as energy concept. I really need someone to help make a suggestion as to whether its all worth it for someone who really didn't have any issues with dairy or gluten before hand. I guess reintroduction may tell me otherwise but I think I tolerated everything pretty well before. Thanks so much!

    Jan. 3 Start Date--Whole60

    Happy New Year! This will be my third ride on the Whole30 carousel. My first two were markedly different from each other--the second time around I really felt the "tiger blood" and everything seemed like second nature (except the no booze, that is never easy). I started my last Whole30 the day after a half marathon, and felt so good throughout the 30 days that I wished I had done this during my half marathon training. Well, fast forward to this spring, when I'll be running a nine miler, half marathon, and ten miler before April. I thought a good way to see if I could change my time. Also, I turn 30 this year (ugh, now I have to say "this year") and it's time to tame the sugar dragon once and for all and take care of myself. So, we're trying this thing for 60 days, which will take me up to just before my half marathon (and honestly, it'll probably become a Whole70 at that point). Looking forward to seeing what happens!

    Any Europeans out there?

    Hi, I'm planning to start my 2nd whole30 round on February 13th. Actually I will try for a whole60 I finished my 1st whole35(!) 4 days ago. All went according to plan, I felt great, planned to continue eating according to the template apart from some small adjustments. However... The sugar dragon caught up with me postwhole35 day 3. Anyone willing to go along?

    March 10 Start - Whole 60!

    Hello all! Mamaellen here, back again! This will be my 3rd Whole 30 and I'm going to go for 60 days this time. I have been paleo since October 2012 but without the regiment of Whole30, I enjoy tooo much sugar! Hoping the extra month will help me vanquish its hold on me once and for all! Who's with me? You don't have to do 60 days, just join me for the first 30! Here's a URL of the meals I made while on my first Whole30: Super stoked to have Michelle Tam's NomNomPaleo book by my side for this go around! (Seeing her live next Thursday! Stoked!) Live Fit and Be Well!
  13. Ok so I am on day 52 of my whoel30 and for the last two days I have noticed that I am feeling very hungry before my second meal and even seeing spots and feeling lightheaded (which reminds of me my "hypoglycemia" that I experienced before whole30-i have not experienced it since then, even remarked that my "hypoglycemia" was cured a couple days ago!) and also a slight headache. I am curious is anyone else has dealt with a return in similar symptoms, what could be causing it etc. stats: I lift weights 5x week (heavy weights), light cardio once or twice a week. I'm 5'3 and 134 lbs at last weigh in 22 days ago. I drink close to a gallon of water a day... I drink at least 50 ounces by 3 pm each day and the rest the rest of the day. Meals: Breakfast 7:15-7:30 am (but I eat it slowly while I'm working so I generally finish it between 8 and 8:30) -ground beef with scrambled eggs and fried (in CO) red and sweet potatoes (ground beef, egg and potatoes equal about 1 cup, maybe 1.5 cups) over a cup and a half of baby spinach and a cup and a half of romaine (possibly more not sure, its a big 'ol pile of greens) and 1/2 an avocado on top. 1 cup of fruit (watermelon, grapes, strawberries) with 1 cup of coffee with cinnamon Lunch 1:00 pm ( I try to wait until this time and last two days I have had the awful spots, lightheaded and headache starting around 11 am, but I try to wait until one to eat) 4-6 oz sb chicken breast, cup of broccoli, 1/4 large sweet potato, 2 hard boiled eggs, 1/2 avo and 1 cup of fruit Then I have a preworkout minimeal and post workout minimeal and dinner.. but my lightheaded ness has been coming around 11 am and around 4 pm... about 3 hrs after I eat each meal. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
