  1. Hey everyone, it´s the first time I am here and I am so excited for having this forum for support on my whole30 experience. I am on day 7 and the truth is that it´s been feeling a little lonely. Well, I´d like to ask you for suggestions with the following issue: The thing is, I come from binge eating. This new year 2019 I am letting go of disordered eating of any kind, and I really really really want to change my relationship to food into a healthy, loving and peaceful one, and doing whole30 is the first step of my plan towards achieving that resolution. It has been great so far, and I feel that if I keep doing this till I completely get used to it so much is gonna change. I am making a menu, a mealplan every week and I have promised myself that I will keep making weekly mealplans and sticking to them for the rest of the year. This is challenging my patience, discipline, boredom feeling and also my impulses and anxiety. I wanna get in control of my choices 100%. So I would like to ask you for advice or any suggestions you may have for me to stop cooking and eating with anxiety. Today I snacked and it´s something I don´t wanna do cause binge eating is all about "let me have a little bit of this, a little bit of that". I simply wanna stick to what I plan. Learn to wait for food. Learn to cook patiently, even enjoying it. For example, today I went grocery shopping for the next week, which took me around 3 hours. I bought some grapes and felt like having some to taste their sweetness on the way home. By the time I got home I was moody and it had already been 5 hours since I had had breakfast, and still had to cook my lunch. Pfff, and I needed to tidy up all the groceries before. So I started doing that and ended up eating some hazelnuts I had bought for a snack for some other day I really needed them, I haven´t contained myself. And I knew I was gonna eat lunch soon but I still had to cook it. So while eating those things I was standing, and cooking fast and the kitchen was still kinda messy. I didn´t take it with peace and calm and that made me feel messy too. By the time I got to eat I found myself devouring my lunch, maybe overeating a little bit without feeling myself too much and in a hurry. So do you know any ways in which I can make my eating experience a peaceful, slow and loving one in my relatinship with food? Thank you so much

    Easy Lunch Ideas

    Hi All~ Newbie here. I have read the entire Whole30 book and just bought and read Whole30 Fast & Easy Cookbook. I wanted to come to you all to see if you could give me suggestions for some tasty, easy lunches. I don't want salads everyday. I am really picky (which I realize I will have to overcome during this). I am used to eating sandwich, chips and fruit for lunch everyday. So if you have any suggestions, please let me know! Laura (first Whole30 coming 5/2/18)
  3. So I have these ready for on the go food packs that I love and get from Costco, the Happy Squeeze Apple Mango Pear and Kale, here is the list of ingredients organic apple purée, organic mango purée, water, organic pear concentrate, organic kale purée, milled organic Salba Chia seed, vitamins and minerals (Choline Bitartrate, tricalcium phosphate, magnesium oxide), malic acid, pectin, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), organic natural flavor. A few of the ingredients are not listed on the preservatives list hence my confusion.

    Forgive Me Forum, For I Have Sinned.

    Forgive me Forum, for I have sinned. In the name of the hard-boiled eggs, and of the broccoli, and of the seltzer. My last confession was . . . ok, this is my first confession. This is my first Whole30 and I am 6 days in. I don’t know how to bring this up tactfully, but I am fraught with sinful thoughts. There’s this – there’s this thing. I am weak. I am jealous. I am lustful. I knew a day, not so long ago, where I could turn to a special somebody in times of celebration, in times of sorrow, and in the minutia of everyday life, but I had to turn him away. Some relationships are too passionate to ever be tamed. Even though I don’t come home to him saying hi to me from our dining room table, I feel like I can still hear him calling my name. It’s not that I don’t love him anymore. Our lives, our love is inextricably bound. While I haven’t called him since starting Whole30, I think about him when I pull the covers up over my shoulders when I first wake up. I think about him when I’m furiously writing down last-minute notes before my Contracts class. I think about him when I’m pressing the lock button on my car keys when I can’t remember which floor of the parking garage I parked on. I made a resolute promise to myself and to my friends that I wouldn’t even look him in the eye during this whole process, much less touch him. With each passing minute, I can see the embers getting closer to catching the wind and starting a wildfire, a fire beyond anyone’s control. The closer the sun gets to the horizon, the closer I can feel myself lunging to him. How can I not think of him? He is smooth. He is robust. He is creamy. He is in the deli counter at Kroger. He’s goat cheese. I love you, goat cheese. I can’t be with you now, but in 24 days, we’ll be together again! I love our love, I don’t care what anyone says! These are my impure thoughts. I am sorry for these and all the sins of my past life We give thanks to the Forum for She is good. For Her mercy endures forever.
  6. Hi! first time doing Whole30 and honestly i have seen great things so far in terms of allergies and almost completely elimating painful sinus headaches. I feel like I’m in the groove and making better food decisions but still ... i cheated and got on the scale and immediate depression. No weight loss. Is this normal? I’m also not really working out at the moment. Stomach seems flatter but honestly kinda bummed. 31YO. Thanks!!!

    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 is..am 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!!!
  8. Hello, I am on day 1 of Whole30. I know it is still early, but I am concerned with not getting enough fat. I am not a huge fan of coconut or avocado. I don't care for the consistency of avocado or the flavor of coconut. I am looking for meal suggestions or ways to disguise these foods into my meals. I found myself very hungry at about 10am after eating breakfast at 7:15am. I ate a hard boiled egg and a small apple for a snack. Breakfast included: 1- Palm sized mango chicken sausage patty, 1/2 cup diced sweet potato home fries, a handful of blueberries, and one egg.
  9. Hello! This is my first whole 30 and I am on day 12. Everything for the most part is going well so far, with the exception that I am getting SO hungry in the afternoons. I am not a super big woman; I'm 25 and 130 pounds (trying to lose a couple pounds/tone up). I feel like I have been eating MORE than usual and I am still hungry! For example, today I had~ - 3 eggs with spinach for breakfast (7am) - an apple and cashews at snack (10am) - mayo tuna salad & veggies with balsamic and oil (12 pm) then came home from work and was STARVING around 3 pm.. - and ate an RX Bar, 3 slices of turkey, and about 10 carrots HELP! Am I doing something wrong? Am I eating at the wrong time, or the wrong things? I would love advice on what could make me any less hungry in the afternoon so that I don't have to snack as much before dinner? Thank you!
  10. OK, the last time I did a Whole30, I really liked the results. But there was one thing that was really hard to deal with throughout the 30 days, and that was feeling like a social pariah.
  11. I made spaghetti squash in the instant pot last night. It's the easiest thing ever! One pot - easy cleanup. The best part is, you steam the squash whole, so cutting it after it comes out is easy. (I can never cut one of those things without risking my life!) I used this recipe, without the parmesan cheese: https://www.skinnytaste.com/one-pot-spaghetti-squash-and-meat-sauce-pressure-cooker-and-slow-cooker/ DH added his cheese on the plate. I sprinkled some nutritional yeast on mine. We both gave it a thumbs up.
  12. Long story short, I've always had pretty severe anxiety and bouts of depression. It is what it is, and exercise always helps. The first couple days I felt fine and pretty optimistic. As of yesterday and today all that has changed. Yesterday I had two major panic attacks (which I haven't had in years) and without sounding dramatic I fell asleep crying and woke up crying. I haven't felt this miserable in a very very long time. I mean my outlook on life has done a 180 just since starting this, which makes no sense since I know it's only 30 days, and I know so many people have benefitted from it. And the idea of food (of any kind, even non-compliant) makes me sick; I'm nauseous all day long. I don't want to eat a single bite of anything (which I also know isn't good). I know the timeline says it's normal to feel agitated and short-tempered and everything, but my question to you is how do I know if that line is being crossed? I reached out to fellow whole30-er yesterday and she had a good point about hormones being reset and whatnot, encouraging me not to quit and I certainly don't want to quit and I know it could get better if I continue, but is this normal? And worth pushing through? I can honestly say I haven't felt this miserable since I was on medication for severe depression. (Side note: I fell off the workout train last summer and just started consistently running again in conjunction with this whole30, so if anything, I would think the return to exercise would help with my mood?) I am on day 7, I have been forcing myself to get enough starches- at least one sweet potato a day- believe me I have researched this topic endlessly and know the first thing advised is to up your starches. I have done what I can with what I can stomach given the problem. I also am aware of the whole "everything isn't caused by whole30" but to me this is just not a coincidence. It is rooted by whatever is going on in my body because of this diet change, undoubtedly.
  13. Good evening all, I'm allergic to eggs, sweet potatoes and avocados and I feel so lost with breakfast trying to feed my wife and I in the morning. She doesn't like peppers which a lot of meals have. I can find recipes without one of my allergy foods, but to find one without all 3 seems to be impossible. Does anyone have so ideas? Thanks!
  14. I started the Whole30 8 days ago - going great so far. I also restarted a low intensity core strength course and getting up at 5am. I get up, have a handful of nuts, and barely break a sweat for about 45 minutes. The problem starts after the workout. I need the morning to do school before my kids get up, so want to spend 5:45-7 doing school, not eating an intentional breakfast (I found myself reading and eating today, which is not ideal) I would like time to enjoy my coffee and read / do my coursework and have breakfast with my family. Could I bridge this gap with some coconut milk and collagen in my coffee? Any other ideas? I know I could scarf something down, but I'd rather not do that
  15. Hello all (: are there any gyro recipes that you've tried and liked? Thanks !
  16. Hi all! I am starting the Whole30 on Monday. Sunday I will be grocery shopping, meal planning, and cooking for the week ahead. I am REALLY excited about this program because I know people who have had wonderful results! However, I live alone as a single woman. (Well, "alone," considering I have a dog, two cats, and three birds, but none of them want to do the Whole30 with me.) I've always struggled with buying food and not knowing how to store it so that I don't end up throwing some away. Do you all have any tips about how to do the program without wasting food? The fresh veggies and fruits are what scare me the most, haha. I do plan on growing my own tomatoes, sweet peppers, and some herbs this summer, so that will help I think. Any and all tips are much appreciated! Emily

    Food Dreams

    So I had my first food dream last night!! I started my Whole30 on Aug. 21. I've done really well...I even went out of town for the weekend on my first weekend on Whole30. I survived and did really well. It helped that my friend doing Whole30 with me was also on the trip so we could keep each other accountable. I get the daily emails and read last week about the food dreams. I don't normally dream about food, so really didn't think it would affect me. WRONG!! We had a work birthday party yesterday afternoon. I sat there while everyone around me had cake & ice cream. So last night I had a dream I was eating yellow cake with chocolate frosting for a birthday. In the dream, I didn't even think twice when the cake was presented to me...ate the whole piece in like 3 seconds!! And then afterward, I actually remembered I'm doing the Whole30 and I'm on Day 10...why would I do something so stupid!!! Anyway, I'm awake now and on Day 11...and planning to laugh about that & NOT eat any cake today or until I'm well past this journey. But I got a chuckle from my dream and realized I'm just like everyone else!! Happy Whole30 to everyone on the journey!!! =)

    Chapul Bars

    So I read the article on Chapul on the main page and find the whole idea of bug-based protein really fascinating. They're working on designing a Whole 30-friendly bar, but I'm wondering if they've already got one (because if this is compliant, I'm dying to try it). What say you? The ingredient list on this flavor of bar seems acceptable - http://chapul.com/aztec-bar-box-of-12/
  19. Hello Whole30ers! I'm happily on day 34 - completing the whole 30 with varied recipes, delicious food, etc. etc. I was a happy girl! Now that its over, I'm surprised to find that I'm not 'craving' anything major - I don't have cravings for pizza or pad thai, in fact, I've loved what I've been eating the past few weeks - my problem is that I feel I've hit a food rut. I've scoured all the websites I could find with easy recipes, I've read the Whole30 book and recipes in that - i think i'm just tired of the whole30 staples. Does anyone have advice, or has been through this before? I want to keep going for sure- I'm incredibly happy with my results on and off the scale - i'm just tired of the food! All my thanks. lindsey
  20. Hey there, I've had a look around but can't seem to find much info on here about the shelf life for prepared meals. I'm wanting to make meals at the beginning of the week, with meat veg etc and have them ready to go for Monday - Friday, but I'm concerned as to how long the cooked meat will stay good for. Does anyone have any advice, tips or info? Cheers!

    Snacks

    I just started my whole30 Journey today got the cookbook (latest edition). I just want to know what all I can have as a snack between Lunch and dinner ? any help would be appreciated.
  22. Hello All, First off I apologize if this has already been posted, or I'm in the wrong section of the forums.. I wasn't able to find what I was looking for. So my question/predicament is what do you do with the gifts you receive from friends and family when you receive unhealthy candy, crackers, processed food, etc.? I've considered just tossing all the candy and junk food in the trash, but then I felt guilty since I know some of the items were not cheap and hard to find. I've also considered putting it in the break room at work, or giving it to different family/friends, but then I thought I'm doing a disservice to them and their health by offering them these same sweets. What do YOU do when you receive non-whole 30/paleo treats as gifts for special occasions?

    Tahini or Substitute?

    Is tahini a Whole 30 approved ingredient? If it isn't, does anyone have ideas for a suitable replacement? I was really hoping to use up an eggplant by making Babaganoush but it calls for 2 tbs. tahini.
  24. Hey everyone. I've been doing the whole30 for 28 days, but this is my first time joining in the forum. I've had the most problems with finding alternatives to Almonds (milk, flour, bars, butter, etc.)! I am allergic to Almonds, and it was this reason that I looked to the whole30: my allergy appeared out of nowhere last June and sent me to the hospital; since then it's been no almonds for me, which has been very difficult since I used to be in the gym a lot and Almond-coconut milk was my go-to (and most available) for blending and recovery. In the w30, I've noticed there is a lot of Almond substituted in, and not having that available has not only been mentally frustrating, it's been distracting me from feeling accomplished, or like the resources I've got available to me are not the WHOLE set that are available for others, and that has been very discouraging. So I want to know, does anyone else suffer from specifically ALMOND ALLERGIES, and what have you done to get around it, or how has it been for you?

    Snacks!!

    What kind of snacks are good on the Whole30 program? I want to make sure that I have the minimal amount of snacks, but at the same time I would like to have them around constantly so I don't eat the foods that I am not supposed to eat. I am in the middle of reading the books and just trying to prep as much as possible. Here is my first weeks meal plan: the 1st line is breakfast, line 2 is lunch, line 3 is dinner, and the 4 line is snacks. Any suggestions???? Thanks! Donna
