  1. Hello! This is my first Whole 30, but I've been paleo for 1 1/2 years. I live in New Zealand so I'm officially starting on the 2nd, which is the 1st in America... I live in the future!!... Reason being is that I'm from America, and so most of my paleo pals who are participating in the Whole 30 are starting that day and I wanted to join in. I have a lot of changes happening in my life right now and so I think this might be coming at the perfect time to help me transition. Here's a short summary: I just got married and haven't really been able to eat like a good paleo girl ever since... I never really gave up dairy, dark chocolate, or wine on the paleo diet, which I know a lot of people do, but I feel like I was having those three things a lot more than I should have been... I recently stopped taking birth control and would like to have better nutrition as my body transitions out of the daily hormone dose and learns to handle my own hormones again... I intend to take vitamins during my Whole 30 to help with the post birth control vitamin depletion. I read the article about the Whole 30 approved look at picking vitamins, so I feel alright about this. Also, I think I might try an auto immune protocol approach to my Whole 30. The reason being is that I've always felt like something else was bothering me that wasn't yet eliminated... I guess this could be the naughty dairy, wine, and chocolate, but it seemed like it was beyond that. It's not like I had those foods every single day. There were periods without them, and nothing seemed to change. So I'd like to play around a little bit. Part of me worries that there's just too much going on as it is, and that I should just do the normal Whole 30... But I don't know, maybe that is just an excuse. I guess I have until breakfast to figure this out! Let the days begin!
