  1. I am starting my first Whole30 January 1, 2019. I have had a lot of friends do it and even thought about starting one last year. Background... About a year and a half ago I moved back to the US after spending 3 years in Australia. While in Australia I found a trainer and loved the healthy lifestyle. I was the fittest I'd ever been. I had spent most of my life overweight. I wasn't tiny by any means but I felt so good! Fast forwarded, to new job, new place and lots of stress and I feel like I've reverted right back to old habits. I sleep poorly, I have frequent migraines and the fun aura that comes with that, aches and pains and I am not managing stress well at all. I had a bit of a wake up call a couple of weeks ago that I need to reset my life and be taking care of myself, so I can function in the rest of my life at my best. So here we are. Goals for the next 30 days: 1. I am mostly focusing on fixing my relationship with food, I want to make good choices and fuel my body instead of just feeding it. 2. Exercise: I pay for boxing classes I don't attend. I want to attend all 6 in the next 30 days. I will also be aiming for 10,000 steps each day. Ultimately I am hoping to do Whole 30 4 times in 2019, January, April, July, October. But fist I am focusing on completing January.
  2. Hi Everyone! I am beginning Whole30 today, May 7th, 2018! This is my first Whole30 and I am hoping there are others out there who can connect on here as well! I know lots of people started May 1st. Would love to connect with you too! Here's to a great first week (or second for some of you!) Let's keep each other motivated and show love and support! Best, Laura

    Am I eating too much!

    Hi I am new to whole 30 I am on day 7. Yeah me!!! I am trying to be better about adding more fat to my diet cause I was very restrictive before. I read eating 3 large meals every 5 hours is better then 3 meals and snacking, also that eating fruit with nuts is better. Sooo my question I eating to much!! This was prepared knowing I was going to go for a 3-4 mile jog/walk. Here is what I ate for breakfast: 2 eggs with one yolk, 1/2 tbs of clarified butter, half of large avocado, 1 compliment sausage (160 calories) and a blood orange. After workout: 1 Apple with packet of almond butter (160 calories) Lunch: 1 sausage (160 calories) side salad, compliment 2 tbs honey mustard, compliant guacamole (120 calories) carrots, half small sweet potato dinner: Half spaghetti squash, ground turkey (handful) Brussel sprouts, half sweet potato possibly fruit with dinner* cravings are rough right now for sugar! My goal is to feel the best I can on whole 30 but I would also like to loose weight for my wedding in 8 months. Thank you all! Hope you have a beautiful day!!!

    Brand New- Starting 2/19/18

    Hello! I am so excited to start my first Whole 30 this coming Monday- February 19th. Recently, I got engaged and am in the throws of wedding planning our June wedding. With all the stress of planning the big day, plus working full time at a relatively new job, I have to admit I have let me health get away from me... I am super pumped to hit the reset button with the Whole 30. The only big concern I am having is that I am not much of a meat eater, so acclimating to eating meat every day may be a tough one for me.
  5. I've never been a part of a forum, so this is new. So is Whole30. I'm a planner. Therefore, I have my meal plans worked out for the 30 days, starting January 8. I've sampled recipes so I know what I like, and since I'm only cooking for one, my preferences are all that matter. Boy, that sounded conceited, sorry. I'm traveling after the holidays or I would start on January 1 with so many others. Not going far, but I didn't want to be just starting and already concerned with eating out and away from home. Anyway, any other solo January 8-ers out there?
  6. Hey all! I'm doing my first Whole30 ever. I spent months prepping and priming myself to do something that scared me half out of my wits. (I have a legit sugar addiction and a lesser but still potent comfort/junk food addiction). I finally started on Wednesday, the 4th, so this is my fifth day. I keep waiting for something to change - my body, my mood, my energy... NOTHING is happening. It's like I've not even changed anything except that I want sugar and junk food. But even that is perfectly normal! I crave things just as much as I did before, not more, not less. I've read avidly about the Whole30 "timeline" and others' experiences and none of it is happening for me! The only thing is that I feel depressed, listless, and outrageously anxious about food choices. Last night I had a nightmare that I gave up on the Whole30. (Not a "food dream", either) I woke up practically in tears. What am I doing wrong?!?! I'm so afraid that I'll somehow push myself through these next 23 days, only to find at the end that nothing's improved. My skin, which suffers from chronic acne, has cleared up SLIGHTLY, but it's barely noticeable. But when I was eating crap all the time but not eating gluten or white sugar then my skin was just as clear as it is now! I feel like I'm stressing and putting all this work in for nothing. Any help??
  7. Hi everyone, my name is Madison and I am on Day 6 of my first Whole 30. I am 21 years old, 5'9" and a little overweight although I do not weigh myself. I also have had stomach problems for 2 years and depression/anxiety/panic disorder. I went gluten free April 2014. I like to think I have strong willpower when it comes to the Whole 30 but I must say I am not the best at following the meal plan, hydration and snacking rules. I am feeling rather discouraged although I do plan to keep doing the remaining days. My discouragement may have been spurred from today's stomach pains - I know it is early but I was hoping the Whole 30 would help with this. However I did have a compliant Applegate hot dog last night so maybe that is it? I also do not have a gallbladder so maybe I am eating too much fat? Anyway, I would love some words of wisdom from you all! My typical day: January 6th M1 - 9:30am Stir fried peppers, onions, garlic with 2 eggs M2 - 1:30pm small kale salad with avocado, pepper, onion, egg, strawberries M3 - 4:20pm tuna salad (1 can) with onion, pepper, capers, mustard, more pepper on the side (1/2) snack - 5pm apple with 2 tbsp almond butter snack - 10pm larabar I know I really shouldn't have eaten the Larabar because I wasn't that hungry. I know I have a cravings problem because I stare at all the bad foods at the store and think about what I'm going to eat when this is over. I also have a problem getting all of my meals down, which may be why I get hungry. Halfway through M1, I was almost gagging and had to force the rest down real quick. This has also happened at lunch and dinner so it is not just that it is the morning. In terms of compliance, I know that everything is compliant based on what I've read here (my LaCroix, the Applegate hot dogs, teas with natural flavors) but that still worries me. What if I screw myself over for eating these things? What if my eating habits are ruining it? What if I am wasting my time? I'm sorry, that is the anxiety talking. Thanks for reading everyone! Any advice or anything would be greatly appreciated!
  8. Hey all! The steps for whole30 told me to join the forum so here I am. I start tomorrow on my journey. I have many reasons for starting.... weight loss, asthma, arthritis at the age of 32, migraines, tummy troubles... and that's just the beginning. I'm a married mommy of 2, working full time. I live in Brooklyn & work in Manhattan. I am originally from England and have lived here since 2006. I have lost 64lbs to date but have got into a place where I keep losing and gaining the same 6lbs. I am currently in the gaining cycle lol. Anybody else in NY here? Any Brits? Is anyone else starting tomorrow? Thanks for reading!
  9. Hey Folks! So this is my first time taking the Whole30 challenge!! Luckily, I have a great support system that is doing it with me. My husband has graciously decided to give up his love for cheese and coffee (large quantities) to support me in this adventure! I also have a few friends that have jumped on this crazy train as well. I'm hoping to kill my sugar monster (because it is HUGEEEE!!!) I definitely have an addiction to sugar ... no doubt about it. But, I also want to have food freedom. No more being a slave to food!!! I can tell this is going to be a long journey, but hopefully one that betters me in the end! I would love any tips or tricks that make the process less boring and easier to get through. I'll be writing back soon (if we don't kill one another by the end of the first week that is!). - Chelsea "So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" - 1 Corinthians 10:31
