  1. Hi! So before Whole30 I would cook meat at home 1-2x a month. I'd usually order it when I went out. But my diet was largely vegetables and carbs. Now I eat it everyday multiple times a day. I'm on Day10 and I'm so so so sick of eating meat! I have nothing against it I'm just tired of it. Did anyone else have this problem? How did you deal with it? I've eaten: -steak -pecan crusted pork chops -turkey burgers -roasted chicken
  2. 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)
  4. 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.
  7. 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!!!
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. Before you post a question that starts with, "Can I have (insert food/drink/condiment here)," please follow these quick steps. 1. Read this article, where we summarize the most common "Can I have" questions and answers! http://whole30.com/2013/06/the-official-can-i-have-guide-to-the-whole30/ If your food or beverage isn't listed there, then... 2. Search this forum! (Google is the easiest way, simply google 'whole30 + item') Chances are, someone has asked the question before. If not... 3. Post your question here, making sure the subject line includes the item in question. (Ex: subject, "Can I have kombucha?") (Include as much detail in your post including ingredients you would like to check as possible) Thanks for participating - and best of luck on your Whole30! Melissa, Dallas and the Whole9 team
