  1. Hi, I haven't technically started Whole 30 yet, but the fact that there are as many of you out there to help me get through the hard times is incredibly motivating. Before getting off the ground, however, I've run into a bit of a hitch. My future husband (April 25, 2015!) is not one to control his eating. I will say, when he is gaining weight, he does an OK job of monitoring his intake and choosing "grilled" instead of "fried" or "diet" instead of "regular". But that is the extent of it. When I asked his interest level about Whole 30 (to start it after our honeymoon), he was completely uninterested. He doesn't see the benefits outweighing his desire to eat crappy food. His comment, "it's like speeding. I will always want to go 75 in a 70" How do I motivate a mentality like that?? He says he will do this with me, and I believe him. I truly think that if he goes the 30 days without cheating, he will see a difference and stick with the healthier eating program, but the trick is getting him NOT to cheat with bad foods/soda/cheese. Not to mention, I'm not much of a cook, so that will add an extra challenge. I mean, how can you add flavor in paleo?? I guess that is one thing I will figure out on this journey. Help!! -Jess
