  1. 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.

    Meal Planning for One

    I will be starting Whole 30 January 8, 2018 and ordered It Starts With You & Whole 30-Day Guide books to begin embracing the process. I have never tried to be on a dedicated plan except 10 years ago when I did Weight Watchers on my own. I did end up losing too much weight in a small amount of time. I am a small framed person, runner and triathlete and constantly have injuries and inflammation issues so after much research, I believe Whole 30 will be the right plan for me. My husband will not join in my Whole 30 journey as he is also a runner and triathlete, and he will never give up some unhealthy food and beverages as I have tried for many years. He is however, supporting me in my quest to get healthy and address my health issues. It will be even an added bonus if I can lose a few pounds in my mid-section. How do I go about doing Whole 30 for just me? I don't see a lot of information regarding how to prep for one person. I don't want to buy so much food and have to waste it. I have been meal prepping for years and I don't believe that will be an issue for me. I really need some recommendations, guidance, resources and tips that will be beneficial for one person to be on the Whole 30 plan. I do extremely well with structure and schedule ( like my training schedule my husband creates and I use daily), and just want to be able to go to one place for meal plans and not have to spend a lot of time thinking about what to shop for, cook etc. Pre-printed plans for one person would be ideal. Is there anything like this? I am excited to commit to Whole 30 as I know I have the drive and dedication when it comes to training and races, so I hope I can be successful with sticking with it. Thanks in advance!
  3. This year for the holiday I will be sticking to a largely Whole30 compliant diet. I am trying to plan Thanksgiving, which I will be hosting at my house, for about 9 people. My husband will have completed his reintroduction by this time, as well as myself, but I find my body functioning better, my energy levels higher, and my migraines have been significantly reduced (though not eliminated). As such, I am going to do my reintroduction, but probably continue to leave out many of the items. Most of the people coming to Thanksgiving still think my Whole30 is a little nutty, but I would like to prepare a largely Whole30 compliant Thanksgiving for my family (with the addition of rolls that I won't be eating). I have seen some cook books for paleo holidays and the like, but I don't want to purchase one and find out it won't work out or that the meals just won't cut it. Any tips or tricks for a holiday that's largely Whole30 compliant? Thanks

    Whole 30 for a Dancer

    Well i've been searching for this info throughout the forum and didn't find something quite helpful. Im on my 2nd day of Whole 30 ( I started on the 1st of July but accidentally had a zip of beer.. just one zip and decided to start over.. or what I call a Whole 32) I need help with meals, pwm, timing etc... Ok so here's my daily routine. I wake up at 9:00 am, drink collagen and have breakfast between 30 0r 40 min from waking up, then I prepare myself to go to my dance school. My schedule looks like this: Jazz 11:30-13:00 Ballet 13:00 - 14:30 Break (I usually use this time to eat, have a cup of coffee and do some work, i'm also a designer) Lyrical Jazz 16:30-18:00 Hip-Hop 19:30 - 21:00 Go back home and have a shower, prepare dinner and clean So I really don't know what to eat when?... I mean when should I have pre workout or post workout meals?? Any Suggestions?? I go to bed at 12:00 most of days... This is what my most busy day looks like... some days... like today I came home early cause had some office related work to do.. and my dancing finished at 14:30. I really will appreciate your suggestions. Thank You guys. Much Love -Meiyonce
  5. We've been doing whole 30 since August. Still sticking with this way of eating most of the time. My bigger problem is finding recipes we like. We're really not picky eaters and I'm a fairly good cook so I'm a little frustrated. I've probably only kept 5-6 recipes to make again. (Not including grilled meats and veggies, egg salads, roasted veetables and pot roast.) I thought it might be fun to post what we had for supper last night (or any other night) and if you liked it. We had chicken skillet with sweet potatoes and apples from We really liked it and it's very easy to make with enough for leftovers for lunch today. Now I'd love to hear from you!!!

    There's Just One Hitch...

    Brand spanking new to Whole30 and couldn't be more excited to start this new adventure! However, I have a wee snag and could use all the advice I can get my eyes on! I work out of town and reside in a camp when I'm on shift. Before I fly up, I pack as many Paleo/Whole30 approved snacks and a couple of frozen homemade meals. However, while I'm in camp, my meals are prepared daily, I'm not allowed to leave the camp during my shift (so no grocery shopping), nor can I take leftovers for lunch the next day. The bright side is the camp does provide fresh raw veggies and fruit. My main concern is the protein. Because I have zero control of my meals, the quality of the ingredients, or their preparation, I fear I will not be successful on this adventure. Is anyone else in a similar position and have been successful on the program? Does anyone have suggestions on what I can do regarding my protein intake?
  7. Hi all! This is my first time posting to the forum, but I am looking for a little help! I live in NYC, and I am very active. When I'm really doing well with my workout regimen, I take a morning workout class at various boutique fitness studios throughout the city. Technically, I live in queens, it takes me an hour to get to work, so I typically choose studios that are a halfway point in my commute. That being said, I don't have time to mess around in the morning. My pre-workout snack is something I can eat with 1 hand, standing in a train (so something packaged) so I usually rely on a banana and coffee (I know, not recommended). My post workout snack is the same deal, some quick protein I can scarf down walking to work, and then I have my actual breakfast once I'm at work. As a result, I also find myself relying on RX bars more than I would like. So, can you give me any recommendations for portable pre/post workout meals that include some sort of wrapping (I don't want to touch any after a class or on the train!!). Thanks in advance!
  8. Hi! I was wondering if this would be a correct day of eating for the whole30 or if i should make some adjustments: Breakfast: 3 eggs (cooked in coconut oil or ghee), 1.5-2 cups kale (cooked in coconut oil or ghee), salsa, a few sugar snap peas, sauerkraut, 1/2 avocado Lunch: grass fed beef, 2 cups swiss chard(cooked in coconut oil or ghee), onion(cooked in coconut oil or ghee), salsa, 1/2 avocado, raspberries, sauerkraut Dinner/PWO: chicken/fish, 1/2 sweet potato, broccoli, sauerkraut Also, I was wondering if the fat in my protein sources/cooking counts towards the fat in my meals. For instance, my sausage, my grass fed beef, my eggs, and some grass fed steaks that I eat have fat in them. Should I add a source of fat to the meal on top of those sources as well? Also, I cook in VERY small amounts of coconut oil or ghee (>1 tsp) so do I count that towards my fat content as well? Thank you!
  9. Hi All, I run in the morning - straight after I had a glass of water, a cup of coffee and did my physio mobility / strength exercises. My exercises are low key, followed by one of the following runs - I am still not alowed to run continuously after an injury (plus warm-up 1k, cool down 1k): 15x100m technique 4x1600m 10min / 7min / 4min 30x1min 30min easy run I trained for triathlons before I got injured, so I never feel like I really need to fuel for these short sessions, but I am happy to learn more. I feel fine during the runs and I have breakfast within the hour after. If I need to eat - what are some options? I really don't feel like a hard boiled egg and was always more the banana + nut butter type. Help would be uch appreciated Happy running!
  10. I know snacking in between meals is frowned upon, however I'm constantly hungry. I'm on day 11 of my W30 and I can't seem to get enough to eat. I have a 3 week old and I am exclusively breast feeding her. I don't snack on anything that isn't W30 approved, but I am wondering if I should try to cut out the snacks all together or if my body is telling me its hungry because it is. Any other breast feeding moms have this issue?

    Favorite coconut milk?

    Hey there guys! I just wanted to post to see what your favorite coconut brands to use were and why. I've tried some pretty gnarly ones and some that are okay, though my favorite one so far is also the most expensive so I'm looking for alternatives. Here's a link to my top choice: Cha-cha-cha-check it out.

    ACL Rehab

    My 17 yr. old underwent ACL and meniscus rebuild on June 19th. She has been very supportive of my W30 that I completed and have continued... Day 45. My daughter is naturally thin and tall. Losing weight is not the reason for her to join the W30... her goal is to clear up her skin and to supplement her ACL/Meniscus rehab with good nutrition so she can pursue her soccer career as intended. She is very picky healthy eater... meat was never important to her... now she can not get enough! Veggies are limited to asparagus, broccoli, cucumber, carrots, lettuce and she just tried zucchini and was ok with it. Fruit - grapes, strawberries, apples and bananas seem to be it... I need help with side items and some workout foods for her... so she will not keep this attitude of "I am only doing this for 30 days...". We all know that as she progresses in her W30 she will feel the benefits outweigh the cravings she still has but I need to get her hooked on some staple foods that she can look forward to... homemade jerky? Is this true? smoothies that would help boost her post workouts... sorry for just rambling... Truly want to help her without sacrificing my yummy leaner track... Help needed
