  1. Hello all, I’ve been moving along with the program for about 3 weeks now, with a plan for 8 weeks total. The diet has massively improved some of the symptoms of my autoimmune disease, among other positives—however, I’ve become worried that I’m closely approaching an unhealthy weight for my age and size. I know that it’s common to lose a few pounds in the first week just from the loss of some water weight and inflammation in the body, but I’ve definitely lost more than that since. Now, before anyone says anything about stepping on the scale being against the rules—I’m fully aware that the Whole30 guidelines forbid it, but I was at the doctors last week for a check up and I certainly wasn’t going to refuse her, especially since I‘m concerned about the way the program is affecting my weight/body composition. I’m 24, 5ft 5in tall, and engage in regular, daily, moderate exercise (I walk literally everywhere, we don’t have a car). Before I started Whole30, a healthy weight for me was about 130lb-135lb. By the end of week two—when I went to the doctor—I weighed 119lbs. At minimum I’ve lost 11lbs, a lot of it probably body fat/inflammation/water weight according to my doctor. Knowing my body, that’s scary, and I’m very worried that if I keep going on the diet without adjusting my caloric intake or actively trying t gain back the weight, that I’ll just keep losing body fat. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, what’s the solution? What fats should I be adding into the diet? Should I be eating more calories or more meat? Thanks for any help
  2. I know part of the plan is to not count calories so I haven't been I am on day 7 of my second round of the program. However I have been so tired these last few days and I counted my calories that I had eaten and basically, every day I'm getting around 1100 give or take. (I'm 5'10). I don't really eat any of the whole 30 sauces because Im a picky eater and i think most of them are gross. I also don't like sweet potatoes. Does anyone have any high calorie whole 30 meals or really easy compliant fats that I could add to my food? Has anyone else had this issue?

    Eat all the fats

    I'm on day 9 of whole 30 and so I haven't cheated yet, but on days like today I've been eating a LOT of fat to substitute my sugar cravings. I had a half a bag of cashews, four tablespoons of cashew butter, a can of coconut milk and an avocado in addition to my usual cooking fats. My biggest goal with the whole 30 is weight loss, but on days like this, would it hinder weight loss? What do you recommend on days when you want to EAT ALL THE THINGS!!!!

    avocado

    Day 2 here! Yesterday I had a small avocado and hard boiled egg whites for lunch - egg salad last night a large kale salad with olive oil and vinegar, lots of veggies, tuna and another small avocado diced up. today I had avocado halves with tuna (in water) and lime juice. and cucumbers w/lime juice. Am I going overboard with the avocados? Dinner will be grilled meat & veg (no avocados left)

    Coconut oil vs ghee

    I'm 4 days into my whole 30 and it's going well. I had previously replaced most cooking fat in my daily cooking with coconut oil but picked up some ghee because it was on the list of 'ok to eat.' I'm curious about whether it is a healthier choice to continue to primarily use coconut oil or if the added/different flavor of ghee is an ok swap? I also picked up some avocado oil and love the light flavor. Would it work in mayonnaise? Thanks so much!
