  1. Hello, sorry to bring up the grossest part of our W30's, but I've got to ask. I'm Day 19, my energy feels good, by body feels good, my skin is clear, all those things are happening! I think I've got Tiger Blood! However, not Tiger-Tummy. I'm on Day 19, and I still deal with low appetite, gas, bloating, and constipation. I deal with gas/bloating before W30, but am never really constipated. I have been eating beautiful W30 meals, sometimes lack an appetite just cause of the effort that has to go into them, but I really want to get to the bottom of my digestive issues. I have no idea! Any help or input? Thanks!
  2. Hi all! I am on day 19 of my first ever Whole30. Been doing amazing and except for some digestive issues all is going well! BUT I ordered a takeout salad with shrimp, and somehow overlooked the walnuts are candied. There was some sugar on them :/ I ate 4. Sooo the dilemma - do I have to start all over again? I am already salivating at the thought of reintroduction, especially my rolled oats for breakfast. The thought of starting all.over.again. is killing me. But, I will if I have to. Sob.
  3. This may seem like a small victory, but for someone who has always hated black coffee, this is a huge game changer! I drank coffee for the caffeine and had to drown out the flavor with cream and sugar. I have been using coconut, almond, or cashew milk in my first cup and then switching to tea. It's Day 19 and I am finally able to enjoy black coffee! I am so excited to finish my Whole30 and nix the added sugar and cream!
  4. I am on Day 19. I have been using the Whole 30 Cookbook for many of my dinners, and I typically eat those as leftovers or salads, chicken, pepitas and dressing of some kind for lunch. For breakfast, I probably don't eat enough, but my hunger has subsided. I made some "pizza" egg muffins from an Instagram account through Whole 30, or frittatas (with added ground pork or chicken) from the cookbook. Sometimes I'll throw in fruit. At first I was eating way too many nuts. I have decreased the intake of nuts, with the exception of apples and nut butter from time to time. I work extremely long days at times (from 10-12 hours), and I haven't been able to bring enough food to have mini-meals. I will occasionally eat an apple, or cucumbers and mayo/sauce for snacks. One day this week, I had a larabar (it was parent teacher conferences), and a different day I ate 3 date "balls" rolled in almonds. I know they aren't supposed to be eaten much, but my will power is a struggle at times, so doing this program is a win. I work out multiple times a week (2-4) but not daily. I CANNOT eat before I work out, I literally get so sick and want to throw up; even if I eat two hours before, it bothers me. It's been this way since high school. I usually do cardio/weight training, and occasionally yoga. I try to eat as soon as I get home after my workout. Additionally, I am highly allergic to many raw vegetables: carrots, celery, bean sprouts. I can eat them cooked. If I eat too much broccoli or cauliflower it upsets my stomach. Here's the issue: I feel like I'm doing it wrong. I look on the forum way too much. I'm feeling insecure, like I am screwing up. It's this weird feeling I get sometimes when I do new things--being perfect. I'm far from it. I know I need to let this go, but I also know I need more food for breakfast and lunch, but I don't know what to do or how to change it. What should I be preparing for breakfast? Lunch? How can I let go of this feeling of "doing it wrong"? What vegetables and fats should I be including? How can I be better about the "meal template" thing? Thanks guys.
  5. Hey guys, I am feeling very frustrated. I am on day 19 and I honestly don't feel any better. Pants that I haven't worn in months because they were too big are now fitting while my regular pants feel tight. My skin feels the same and I'm not feeling like I have any additional energy than normal. In fact, I've been extremely tired the last week. I know the program is 30 days and I'm not going to see everything yet but, I thought I would have some positive side effects by now. Has anyone else experienced this? I don't even really feel like I am missing out on any food. I honestly don't have food cravings or feel like there is something that I can't eat that I wish I could. I have always had a ton of self control with food when I set my mind to it. I have read It Starts With Food and the Whole30 book and I know I am following all the rules so that is definitely not the problem. I mostly just want to hear from some people who have experienced similar frustrations and I wanted to see when things got better for them and when they started feeling the "magic" that Melissa and Dallas reference in the books.
