  1. When I was reading the grocery list in the Whole30, I was puzzled by the list of nuts & seeds to have "occasionally" or to "limit." In my pre-whole30 mind, I thought walnuts were super healthy (as well as almonds/almond butter.) I would love to know the science, the "Why" behind the grouping of this list (see image). Why are some nuts & seeds better than others? And, why do certain nuts & seeds need to be limited? I'm curious... and... to be honest, I just love walnuts! haha Thanks for taking the time to read this!
  2. Hello, It's my first time. And today's my Day 14. I do crossfit twice a week and I struggle with it... On day 8, for the first time ever, I felt like I was about to faint (never fainted, so I don't know). But I saw the stars and got really dizzy towards the end of my workout. I talked to my trainer, and she was telling me that it's a sign that my body needs more food. I had 2 hard-boiled eggs and a banana with 10ish almonds as a pre-workout meal that day. She told me that I need to find a decent source of carbs. *Before the Whole30, I used to eat only dinner (unhealthy one) most days, so I was used to working out with an empty stomach, so I was confused. but I guess this is the change the book was talking about. So, now I'm taking pre/post-workout meals more seriously. And here comes my question. 1. Has anyone experienced something similar?. I am used to feeling like my lung/legs are about to explode, but never felt dizzy, so I'm concerned. 2. On this Whole30 Meal Template, it says, "Include a small amount of protein (1/2 a meal size or smaller), and (optionally) a small amount of fat (1/2 a meal size or smaller). Do not add fuirt or carb-dense vegetables to your pre-workout snacks," and this article says, "your pre-workout meal should focus on protein and high-fiber carbohydrates – think chicken or turkey breast, lean beef, fish and seafood, as well as sweet and white potatoes, squashes, berries, melons, bananas, and beets." Protein, I get. What Am I supposed to do about Carbs?....My trainer says I should eat more carbs, but I just want to make sure I'm following Whole 30. When I google things,other posts seems to focus on protein and fat sources without carbs, so help me please.

    Whole30 Pre & Post InBody Scans

    Hey folks, I completed my first ever whole30 this week and I thought I'd share my pre and post InBody Analysis scans with you guys. For those not familiar with an InBody scan, basically it is a special scale that measures your body fat %, skeletal muscle mass, and a few other things (https://inbodyusa.com/) Before I started whole30 I weighed 175.6 LBS, had an 8.4% body fat, and had a skeletal muscle mass of 92.4 After doing whole30 I weigh 175.4 LBS, have a 9.2% body fat (highest that's been in quite some time) and a skeletal muscle mass of 91.1 LBS So basically over the course of 40 or so days on Whole30 I lost muscle and gained fat (1.3 pounds of fat to be exact) While doing whole30 I kind of felt like I was eating less "healthy" than I was used to and I felt that my workouts suffered. I'm not upset I tried whole30, about 85-90% of my normal diet is whole30 compliant, but I don't see myself doing another round of strict whole30 again .
  4. Hi, I have been on the Whole30 for 16 days. I know we are not supposed to wight ourselves, but I did. Weight-loss was not my #1 goal...but certainly a hope. I've gained 70lbs over the last 5 years. I would really like to work my way back down. I have stayed the same weight. I stated this past week going on a hike 3 days a week and yoga 4 days a week. What I am wondering is if I'm still not following the meal template accurately. This is what my usual meals look like: Breakfast: 1 coffee with a splash of coconut milk 3 scrambled eggs with a splash of coconut milk (cooked in Ghee) half a fresh red pepper half avocado half tomato a few small slices of cured salmon This breakfast keeps me full generally until lunch. I eat between 730-8am. I do feel hungry for lunch around 1130 (always do), but I am trying to hold out and if I'm busy it holds me over until 1230/1pm. I think the hunger is a boredom thing. Lunch: Dinner left overs or salad if I forget lunch at home. Dinner: protein- shrimp, calamari, or chicken/turkey (I am working towards pescatarian) Usually 1 palm but sometimes two half a fresh red pepper half avocado half tomato Sweet potato or regular potato- Usually fried in a pan out cut up in small wedges and baked with olive oil. I'm thinking maybe a little too much of this? Also between a palm or two per sitting. I cook everything in Ghee, and I use a bunch. I'm wondering if this and the potato might not actually be follow the template. I will also throw a plantain in here and there. I've been trying not to snack, and have been avoiding fruits. Like I said I cook with a lot of ghee. Maybe I am taking it too far? Thank you!

    Compliant Olives

    Please can someone help me find a compliant brand of olives?! I love love love olives and would most likely eat them as my "fat" portion with most meals however I can't seem to find any that don't include a bunch of ingredients. I have Unico Stuffed Manzanilla in my fridge right now but I don't know if I can eat them. Here are the ingredients: Olives, Water, Salt, Minced Pimento, Lactic Acid, Sodium Alginate, Guar Gum, Potassium Sorbate, Calcium Chrloide (this was the ingredient I really wasn't sure of), Citric Acid. Since I don't recognize a lot of those, I've been trying to use the "when in doubt, leave it out" rule however I'm having trouble finding a fat source to go with every meal and since I love olives, it'd be awesome if I could have them. If anyone could help, that'd be amazing. I'm in Ontario, Canada by the way.
