Hello new Whole30 friends! My name is Sam and I'm a professional singer living in Boston, MA. I am a pretty fit and nutritionally informed 28 y/o but because my body is my instrument and I feel one can always feel healthier and look better, I have listened to the testimonials of my friends who have completed Whole30 and decided to take the plunge. I currently eat 6 meals per day, each of which I prepare myself and weigh out each different ingredient for. I almost never eat out except on special occasions or when I am traveling on a gig. Honestly, what I am most nervous about is not the foods I will be giving up (most notably grains, yogurt, and alcohol) but rather giving up my very set meal prep and eating schedule! The idea of letting my body tell me when I am hungry rather than eating every 3 hours without fail, and not being so anal about weighing out each individual thing I put in my mouth is daunting. I've been eating this way since I was 22! But I believe that being more aware of how the food I am eating makes me feel, and the messages it sends to my brain after eating will really feel great in the long run. Plus, I am looking forward to seeing how cutting out grains and alcohol effects my system in any and all ways. I've got to keep my immune system in top shape at all times! So as a first timer, does anyone else have suggestions for someone who is coming from an already health-nut (but different than Whole30) lifestyle?? Looking forward to it!
Hi Everyone! I saw that there are a few different June 1st posts so far, so I thought it'd be good to make one topic where all of us June 1st starters can support each other. This will be my 3rd Whole 30. My first was July 1, 2013, and then I did one in February and now I'm ending off my 1st year of Paleo/Whole9 with a Whole 30. I'm excited to make it official again and excited to see my stats on July 1, 2014! Since last July, I'm down 70 lbs and 4-5 sizes. Whole 30/Whole 9/Paleo is an amazing lifestyle. I will never go back. It's definitely not a fad diet, but rather a healthy way of living, and a way to have a healthy relationship with food. Let me encourage all of the newbies out there to do "before" pictures and measurements. The days over the last year that I'd get frustrated, I'd look at my before and after pics and they helped me keep going! Join us! This will be fun. I still communicate with some of the people that were in my July 2013 support thread. It was great to make friends and find a support system.
Hi everyone! So a few weeks before I was scheduled to start my Whole30, I talked to a group of people at work to see if they would be interested in doing it together. I know that last time I did a Whole30, doing it with with friends made things a lot easier. Everyone seemed really interested and I linked them to all of the Whole30 "cheat sheets" and online documents and great blogs. Start day came (April 28) and only one person, out of a group of maybe 10, committed to doing it with me. I understand, I get it - some people just aren't ready to give up alcohol for a month. The no soda thing scares some people. And no more burritos at lunch, the horror! I think the thing that gets to me is the few people who say they're doing it, or actually "their version" of it. So they're eating sugary bacon, they're drinking on the weekends, they still eat the catered lunches every day without knowing what goes into that stuff. Well, if you're doing "your version" of a Whole30, then it's not really a Whole30, is it. It's frustrating that 2 of us are doing the hard work, and everyone else who isn't still thinks they can reap the benefits. I know myself and the one other committed person will see the best results and feel the best, mentally and physically. I KNOW that. It's just annoying to have someone say 'I love this program!' when they're not...actually doing it. And so I come here to vent my grievances and be with my people! Anyone else experience this in their workplace or inner circle?
Hi there! I posted on a couple threads that I am just starting Whole 30 on Aug 1st and would love some buddies to link up with! About me: I am a chef, I run a personal chef business and am hoping to also become a health coach- just enrolled in a program for it. I try to be pretty healthy but definitely cave to bad food when on trips, out with friends, feeling stressed.... I really want to learn more about the ins and outs of a healthy diet. Would love to talk food, recipes, experiences, low points, with a those going through this program as well. I think having other people around to support one another really makes a difference! looking forward to this experience! oh and I am also attending the Whole 30 workshop here in Boston on Aug 18th if anyone is going!
