    Day 24

    I am on Day 24 today, and have been experiencing some intense cravings. I attribute it to eating a medjool date with almond butter as a snack to hold me over last Wednesday. Since then, I've been craving dried fruit and fruits. I've been giving into the cravings, which has been disappointing at times, since I know the dangers of fruit, etc....but I'm finding it very challenging to battle these cravings. It seems that if I allow myself any fruit or dried fruit, my mind/body just want more, more more! This makes me really nervous about reintroduction and wondering whether or not the elimination process of Whole30 can produce these types of cravings? Any recommendations?
  2. Need ideas for staying on program with non compliant food tempting me. Married going on 39 years not willing to end it over whole 30. This is my 2nd whole 30 day 11 and I really desperately want food freedom!
  3. Hi! This is my first time posting on the forum & I am on my second round of Whole 30 (day 19 as of Sept 27). I am posting because Ive been noticing for the past couple days that I have been fixating quite heavily on the things I am not allowed to eat and kind of feeling a sense of excitement abut eating them post whole 30. I know there is a context in which this is completely fine, but that is not the context we are talking about for example, anticipating sugar binges or copious amounts of popcorn. After my first round my relationship with food was altered completely and I had very little desire to return back to my old habits, however 2/3 of the way through round 2 I am concerned that I will be right back where I started when all is said and done. I know this is a bit of an odd question/post but I haven't been able to find any resources on the topic and I would really appreciate any advice or personal experience anyone has to share!
  4. So this morning if found out that best furry friend passed in her sleep. She lived a beautiful 22 years and has been my companion since grade school. I’m battling sugar/food addiction, depression, and type II diabetes. I’m on day 8 of my Whole30 and have been doing really well! My glucose levels have been amazing before and after meals. Even in moments of weakness I turn to a clementine instead of a cosmic brownie. But this just seems unfair. Food has been a comfort and companion for me as well. I don’t think there has been a rough patch in my life that hasn’t included lots of chocolate. How do I keep from going off the rails? I’ve done okay since this morning but I’m worried the cravings will come. Any advice would be appreciated.
  5. I am on day 25 of Whole30, but I have never felt the tiger blood or lightness I was expecting to feel. I think it is associated with the overconsumption of nuts and other snacky foods. I have always had the need to snack on something, especially in the weekend, when the kitchen is just a few steps away. My diet on Whole30 is similar to my previous diet as I was Paleo; the reason I attempted a Whole30 was to get rid of my urge to snack on something, but clearly, I have failed due to my lack of willpower. I feel guilty. Should I start over?

    Round 2 Immedietely

    Hello All, This is the first time I have posted in here. I just completed Day 24 of my first ever Whole 30 cycle. So here goes my fear, babble, confusion rant, lol. I will admit here I am 29 years old, 5'4" and my starting weight was 286.6, I was at the heaviest I have ever been in my life. I was bingeing on fast food sometimes 3x a day and always eating out. If i had to guess my daily caloric intake was 5000+. I'm a cardiac register nurse in a hospital, I know hypocrisy right. Well i finally reached my breaking point of being sore, tired, depressed, angry, moody, broke, nasty skin, no sleep, no focus, pain and just miserable. I'm too young to be feeling so immobile at work and after work, I plan to be in this career for 20 plus more years and the way i was headed I was going to be a patient soon. I've been single since I was divorced at 23 and I feel my weight is a huge factor and loneliness has set in hard. So my aunt mentioned this and how her and my uncle saw great results. I felt i needed something tough and strict, something to complete do a 180 with, I've tried other things in the past and I would sabotage myself the second the scale didn't show as much weight loss at the week before, then proceed to gain everything back, plus more. That's long story short....fast forward to today Day 24, I feel freakin amazing, my skin is so clear, i have no dandruff, I'm not nearly as sore after a 13 hours shift and I can see small physical changes. However I don't feel prepared for reintroduction. I'm obese and very unhealthy and still have major cravings and want to binge, i feel i need more tough strict love before i'm released into the "normal" world, lol. I was thinking about doing a round 2 immediately. What are the thoughts or feelings about this? Is there a reasoning that this may be frowned upon or detrimental to my overall health transformation. I'm open to any and all suggestions. Thank you. Toni
