  1. Hi all, I'm on Day 3 of my 2nd round of Whole 30 (I completed the first round last August). I was curious if anyone else is experiencing themselves drinking a lot more water without really trying. Normally it is a push for me to drink 32oz (4 cups) in one day. I have to really think about it to get the liquids down. The past two days I've been easily drinking 8 - 10 cups of water without even consciously thinking about it. Any other Whole 30ers notice this? :-)
  2. So-I have read the book from front to back four or five times, I have been making and eating my meals and am enjoying the heck out of it. The "problem" is that I feel really good. Yesterday I did have a nagging headache that I attributed to my change in diet, but I just drank a lot of water and took some ibuprofen. It's gone today, and I am not feeling any of the other things-like, I am not irritable, I am not angry or "bite your face off" like the book said I's just strange. And that is why I am wondering if I am doing something wrong-because I don't feel BAD! Has anyone else felt like this too? I am not complaining, but in the past when I went sugar and gluten free I felt horrible for a week! So I was expecting to feel just as bad, and I am not, so now I am not sure I am doing this right. Any input will help!
  3. Hi everyone! The last few days have been a rollercoaster - never realized how dependent I was on bread and butter! But the most challenging this for me is that I've suddenly been having trouble sleeping every night. I likely drank too much caffeine on day 1, so I was surprised to be tossing and turning, but the last two nights I woke up every couple of hours and have been having nightmares. It could just be part of the process for me, but I wanted to hear if this is a common experience or you might have some ideas about things I can adjust that might be impacting my sleep. TIA
  4. Started Whole30 3 days ago

    Just dropping by to introduce myself and say hi. My wife and I are in our second, well my first, her second go through with Whole30. It is our 3rd day so far and I feel good, no headaches, granted I had already spent 2 weeks grain free and sugar free based on the fact I was tired of feeling crappy all the time. My wife decided after thanksgiving that she was ready to jump on board and with my recent discovery that you can cook in the kitchen, I've been enjoying whipping up as many recipes as I can find. Though, I will say they are going faster than I can make them, and its only the two of us eating it. So to anyone with kids doing the whole30, I tip my hat to you. So far the two best things I've made have been the Coconut Curry Chicken and separately I roasted sweet potatoes together with broccoli w/ a light seasoning of Paprika and diced up sugar free bacon(from my local butcher, all happy healthy pigs) w/ just a small amount of red onion mixed in. Even my super picky cook of a roommate said it was the tastiest thing I've made. Early lessons I've learned, less salt is better, its really easy to overdue salting veggies if you roast them; same goes for seasonings, less is more. Any who, just wanted to stop by and say Hi from Beaverton/Hillsboro, OR. Esquared Hanson
  5. I started my first whole30 on Monday after piddling around with it last week. But this week I'm following it strictly. I'm a diabetic not well controlled and in a wheelchair due to degenerative dics and fibromylgia. I can already tell a difference. Swelling in my feet and ankles is way down and also in my fingers. My hip and low back pain is much better (it was getting so severe I could not sleep at all at night). I don't crave anything - even my beloved cheese. But best of all, my blood sugar is SO much better. I'd been averaging 220 but that average is now down to 203 and I've had to start skipping my noon insulin injections and halving both night injections to avoide lows. Its so strange to see a read of 103 or 98 or even the 84 I got before lunch today. I've never had those type of readings before. I'm truly looking forward to seeing what all changes my body shows after 30 days. I'm loving this and don't feel deprived at all. Here's to getting out of this wheelchair soon.
  6. WHole30 baby

    Hello ALL!!! This isn't my first day this is actually my 3rd day (April 7 2016) but I am still a whole30 baby and like all babies I am throwing food tantrums but with a few sips of mint tea and extra GALLONS of water I am happy to say that I am still going strong. Please feel free to recommend any egg-less breakfasts options, recipes with chicken (seeing how it is the only meat that I eat) and most importantly snack options even though I know snacking isn't recommend but a girl's gotta EAT! Love you all!!
  7. Go figure, I have a cold. It was pretty bad yesterday (day 2) and I kept waking up in the middle of the night to cough my heart out. My whole life I usually get a cold in the springtime, but this one is especially hard because I cannot just go and cook up a can of Chicken Noodle Soup. Today's email let me know that it is common to get sick in the first week, but that does not make life any easier. Does anyone have any advice during this time? What kind of cold remedies worked for you (Whole 30 approved)? Thank you!
  8. Am I doing this right?

    So I just got my Whole30 Daily for Day 3 and I'm feeling FINE. I mean literally no different than on day one. No headaches, no digestive issues, no fatigue (other than what I've been experiencing for the last 4 days due to my cold). I've been eating to template and sticking to the rules, I'm pretty sure. I've eaten the same things the last 2 days, and for my first meal today. M1: - 2 hard boiled eggs sliced in half with mashed avocado and kalua pig on top - ~2 cups raw carrots and cucumber with compliant ranch (nom nom paleo recipe) - 1 cup coffee with ~2 tbsp coconut oil and ~1 tsp ghee blended in M2: - Buffalo Chicken casserole (1/2 meat, 1/2 veggies, primarily spaghetti squash, eggs, compliant mayo and hot sauce) - ~2 cups slaw salad with compliant ranch - ~4 pieces homemade, compliant, beef jerky M3: - 2 eggs, kalua pig, proscuitto, ghee (nom nom paleo recipe) - ~2 cups steamed broccoli with EVOO & lemon juice - beets marinated in a bit of balsamic Throughout the day: 1 green tea (nothing added , 1 tulsi tea (nothing added) My meals have been sustaining me from one to the next, and I'm really enjoying them. The only sugar that I can think of that might have snuck in is the coating on the cold and sinus tablets that I am taking because of the cold that hit me on Day 0. Sleep is normal @ ~7 hours a night. I'm not currently exercising, mostly due to my cold, but haven't been exercising regularly for months. Pre- Whole30 my food was paleo at home, but including dairy, and whatever-the-hell i felt like when out of the home. So definitely not ideal. Am I ok? Am I doing something wrong? Or am I just getting off easy?
  9. Hi all! I am on Day 3 of my first Whole30 and absolutely not hungry and feel like I've been run over by a bus and can't move. So far I have been eating way more than I normally would because I'm worried of getting hungry. This is what I have eaten today: Day 1: Brunch: Spinach frittata with avocado and a side of fruit Snack: Larabar (I know I am not supposed to but I was travelling) Supper: Zoodles, shrimp and romesco sauce. Then I was starving an hour later, so I had a few veggies, and almond butter. Day 2: Breakfast: Spinach frittata with avocado and a side of fruit Lunch: Protein salad traditional with salmon, apple and almond butter. (was not overly hungry) Supper: Zoodles, shrimp and romesco sauce and half avocado. Day 3: Brakfast: Two sweet potato slices with 1 mashed avocado, 1 slice of prosciutto and two eggs, with a side of sautéed spinach and mushrooms and a few grapes. (not really hungry for lunch but ate anyways) Lunch: Mexi Tuna in Romaine leaves (3 leaves) and two dates. Came home and felt super low blood sugar and felt like I was going to pass out so I had a handful of raisins while making dinner, but I am not even hungry. Help! Is this normal? Thanks in advance everyone!
  10. Stomach Pain

    Hello! I am on day 3 of the whole 30 and am experiencing intervals of stomach pain. **Warning** Going to go into more detail about poop. OK- I warned you. So today I have had 2 loose stools. After the second one, I got a bad stomach ache. I know the book talks about how this program gets rid of "stomach bacteria" that live on sugar. Does anyone know if that could cause me to have stomach aches? Also, I haven't ate this much fruit/veggies in a lonnnnnggg time. I have ate processed foods and lots of sugary stuff for years. I think I am somewhat past the withdrawl stage. Had headaches yesterday, but nothing today. Generally feel OK today. Grumpy with spurts of happiness for the most part during the day, this evening I have been calm/fine. Is this normal? Is it possible for your body to have these kinds of reactions just from only eating whole foods? What an eye opener if so.
  11. I am on day 3 of my first Whole30...I am really struggling with feeling nauseated since day 1. Day 1 I also already got "the headache" but that luckily has not reappeared. I know I can't take Pepto or tums because of the added sugar, I hate ginger flavor, and peppermint tea doesn't seem to be doing the trick. Does anyone have any suggestions of stomach soothers that I could try that are compliant? Day one and day two were pretty much constant with nausea...Today I actually felt ok until I ate lunch...then literally about 5 minutes later I was lightheaded and thought I was going to toss my non-existent cookies. Here is a look at my meals the last few days. I am really working on ramping up breakfast (I know I need more protein there) However, prior to this my "breakfast" consisted of a glass of juice or almond milk. I still have a hard time eating "food" before about 10 am, but I am forcing it to happen. Actually right now I feel like I am having to force myself to eat most of the time as even thinking about food can trigger the "ugh" feeling or make it worse. Prior to the entire Whole30 I was probably eating 5-6 small meals a day and I ate whole grains, dairy, and I love hard cider and chocolate. White flour and sugar were already long gone from my house, but coconut sugar, honey, etc were used in place of that. I am drinking water with lemon, unsweetened green tea, and La Croix. Day 1 breakfast: (I was planning on hardboiling eggs the night before, but dropped the entire carton...had to grab some the next day) Banana 2 Dates Very small handful of raw almonds Lunch: 1 cup compliant Turkey Taco Meat 1 cup lettuce leaves 5 mini bell peppers 1/4 sweet potato Dinner: 4 1.5 inch compliant turkey/chicken meatballs with an egg mixed in and cooked in coconut oil 1.5 cups homemade compliant marinara with added bell peppers, carrots, and zucchini Day 2 Breakfast 1 hard boiled egg Banana Very small handful of almonds Lunch: 1 cup of compliant Tuna Salad 1 medium avocado 5 mini bell peppers Small handful baby carrots Dinner: compliant Paleo Beef Stroganoff with olives on top of Zoodles (Hubbs is allergic to mushrooms sadly) Large serving of steamed brussels drizzled with Balsamic and avocado oil Day 3: Breakfast 2 hardboiled eggs Banana Apple 3 mini peppers Lunch: Leftover Stroganoff and zoodles with around 4 brussles tossed in 1/2 cup of compliant Sweet Potato/apple/chicken sausage hash Fresh Pineapple, probably about a cup 10 green olives I honestly don't even want to think about it....but dinner plans tonight are for chicken breasts cut into strips, dipped in egg and a little almond/coconut flour, with roasted sweet potato wedges with a compliant mustard sauce for dipping and some mini peppers on the side. I know I for sure need to up the protein in my breakfasts, but right now I need something that is compliant that might help soothe my stomach. I am miserable at work and it is affecting my performance.... Hellllllp!
  12. Started 4/13/15

    I had read about this diet before I started. I wanted to clearly understand what I was getting in to. So far, things are going really well. I am able to stick to it. I feel good about my food choices. That was until I woke up today (Day 3). That "hangover" phase they mentioned? Yeahhh totally there now. I feel like I was out all night drinking! My head is all foggy and pounding and my energy level is total poop. I am hoping that by days end and in to tomorrow things will improve. Looking forward to day 4 and 5 right about now.
  13. Not sure why I'm getting killer charley horses, but I had two last night. I'm well hydrated and I don't get them often at all, I cant remember the last time Ive had one. Anyone else experience this? Thoughts? W30 related?
  14. Hello experts and peers, I am on Day 3 of my first ever Whole 30. The daily newsletter today mentioned that some side effects may be worsening allergies and flu like symptoms. Since yesterday, my right eye has been crazy-watery. It's not particularly red, but definitely secreting more than normal. Generally, with allergies, both eyes will be itchy and watery. I'm trying to decide if this is normal, or if I have the potential for pink eye and should head to the clinic. I fully realize most of you aren't doctors, but perhaps a similar thing has happened to you and we can learn from mutual experience. Thanks in advance!
  15. Looking for some help on this one. Woke up on Day 3 after a decent enough night sleep. Lingered in bed for about an hour- didn't feel hungry at all and my body was tired. The moment I stepped out of bed, I started to feel shaky like I was going to pass out. Then I got serious waves of nausea and was on the verge of vomiting a couple of times. I tried to force some food into me- some eggs with mushroom + spinach and berries. I'm drinking water too. Here's what my diet so far has looked like: Day 1: Eggs w/mushroom + spinach and Berries Spinach salad with green beans, blueberries, chicken, and balsamic vinegar Shrimp + green beans for dinner Snack: Banana and Almonds Day 2: Eggs w/ mushroom + spinach and berries Spinach salad with avacado, hard-boiled egg and chicken Snack: Banana Dinner: Okra + Broccoli + 1 1/2 Turkey Dogs Background on me: Struggle with IBS-C, lactose intolerance, and recently an acid stomach (dyspepsia). On NuvaRing birthcontrol, probiotic caplets, 40mg omeprazole for acid reflux, vitamin d, b12, and fish oil. I'm 23, 4 ft 11", and 107 pounds. I'm not a huge eater. My goal with the whole30 is to try to heal my digestive system and rediscover how my body relates to food so I can make healthy food choices for my IBS-C and Acid Reflux. Please someone let me know if this is normal. I have to go into work in an hour and I don't want to have to call in sick. I am very discouraged.
  16. I am on day 3 and have to go out to dinner for a work meeting. The restaurant is very accomadating to V, DF and GF but I'm still a little nervous/worried about what to eat. Here's the menu: I'm thinking about ordering the "Roasted Chicken" which includes :boniato sweet potato puree, peppers, onions,green olives, roasted garlic sauce Advice? Thanks!
