  1. Goodmorning! I have officially completed the audiobook and have begun my Whole30 journey. I started paying attention to my cravings and what triggered them while listening to the book and sugar dragon is an understatement for me. I have never been so scared of the craving as I did when I consciously did not choose the sweets for a few weeks and had cake at a baby shower without completely following the system. It was a demon of a craving that hurt my chest and I sadly succumbed too but holy cow it was a scary feeling the need my body made me feel for carrot cake of all things. This morning I had a scramble of two eggs, peppers, kale, carrots, olives. Then my coffee with almond unsweetened creamer. If I am following the 3 meals every 4-5 hours. I will be eating lunch around 10 am and dinner before I leave work. . . that isn't practical for my lifestyle. Any tips from some 8-5 ers out there that rise early but have scheduled lunch hours?? ** side note. . . I work at a computer and have had a tendency to mindless munch in the past, so that is something else I am trying to overcome.
  2. I’ve really hit a low point in my self-esteem, weight gain and overall feeling in general. I’m really interested in starting my first Whole30 and so is my boyfriend (we live together so it will be a great support system), but I’m struggling to pick a start date. Say I start tomorrow, April 10th - in the next 30 days, I have: big family dinner for Easter, my 26th birthday, which is also on the same day as a friends wedding. Then If I look at the next few months in general, I have another wedding, holiday weekends (BBQs and alcohol will be abundant), an opening event for my boyfriends work that also involves alcohol... I’m just afraid that if I don’t do this now, will I ever even start?? But if I start now, will I be miserable at these events and regret the program? Help!

    KT's First Whole 30!

    Hi! This is my first whole 30; and honestly, the first time trying to be a part of a diet forum too... I've tried sooooo many diets and non-diets and lifestyle changes and cleanses and nothing has ever stuck, and I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I can't manage my cravings and I actually have no idea what foods I can and can't tolerate and I get overwhelmed semi-easily -- enter whole 30! My start date is January 2nd. Perhaps part of my non-success with my other attempts have been because I never had a support system in place to encourage me when things get hard. And I know this w30 will be a challenge for me... does anyone want to exchange numbers and be w30 buddies? I really really want to do this right. -KT
  5. I am day 7 on my very first whole 30 and I am wondering if I am eating way too much fat, starch and if my portion sizes are way too big. I just need some help because I really want to succeed. I went into this thinking I hated most veggies but I have realized I actually love them and this has been life changing so far. My eating in a day: Black coffee, 2 eggs fried in olive or coconut oil(I cover the bottom of the pan) sometimes I add spinach to eggs, a potato hash(butternut squash, sweet potato, white potato) previously roasted and warmed up in same pan as eggs. These are always a very generous portion of the hash. Like very. Lunch: some kind of roasted veggies warmed in a pan with oil, roasted chicken with guac or dip Supper: a lot like lunch but maybe with some potato hash. I hardly ever snack maybe a banana at night. And I drink the water I need to. My servings of veggies are always well over half my plate but not sure if I'm eating too much starch (low carb diet recovery) Help!!!

    Very Tired Teacher

    Hello, My name is Shannon and I am a 49 year old mother of 4. I have been experiencing fatigue for years and my doctors have not been helpful. I do have what I presume is Hashimoto's thyroiditis. My doctors have never used those words but from what I have read there are only 3 causes of a hypothyroidism and I definitely don't have 2 of them. Most recently my doctor suggested I needed a psychiatrist. Yikes. Not because he thinks I'm nuts but because I do suffer from some anxiety and depression. I have been on antidepressants but hated them. I would like to treat whatever is going on naturally. I know I already have a few sensitivities to chemical additives so have been avoiding those for years. I do like to cook from scratch at home but mostly dinner. I am not a breakfast person. It looks like I will need to fix that.... I plan to start on Ash Wednesday and make this my lenten discipline. There should be enough time for me to do the reintroduction as well.
