  1. Day 28. Any change I saw or felt in my body happened the first week. Maybe I just lost a little water weight, but I felt a tad smaller in the tummy. Since then, I've had no change. I thought I might at least get down a size. Nope. I don't feel any different. I don't look any different. I discovered soy in a supplement I was taking twice a day on Day 9 and pledged to restart the days, so I'll take it right through Lent. But so far I have to say Whole 30 is a bust for me. I know some other people were starting on March 1 and also going through Lent, but I can't find the original posts. I'd love to hear from those people! And please. I don't want to argue about whether this is a weight-loss program. Save it. Seriously.
  2. Ok, so I've passed the 2 week mark. Still waiting for ANY benefits from whole 30, and all I have is frequent hunger and always feel like I need a nap. I can't work out like I normally do, because I feel so weak and tired. I'm making efforts to get enough protein, even with my established pescatarian diet; LOTS of eggs and fish fillets. Today I broke down and weighed myself, because I just needed some sign that all this deprivation was doing some good. Haven't lost a single pound. What's going on? Am I doing something wrong??
  3. Hi there, I have just completed my very first Whole30. I am extremely proud of myself for completing it. I was eating semi-Paleo before and before that was "low-carb" for years but never took the deep dive to try heal my body and really focus on getting all the rights foods in; it was always about eliminating the wrong foods. I was SO excited to start. I listened to It Starts with Food on Audible, read the Whole30 and stocked my pantry. I was confident it was going to be pretty easy for me as I love meat and vegetables and I love to cook. The Whole30 was pretty easy despite a few cravings here and there. I discovered amazing new recipes that I now like more than their non-Whole30 compliant versions and I realized I can live without dairy. Unfortunately, I have not gotten any of the other benefits that was described in the book; no boundless energy, in fact I was plagued with fatigue almost the whole time, no amazing skin and, to make it all so much more disappointing, I did not lose a single pound. I could have cried; actually I did. I know the Whole30 lifestyle is not a diet but I really needed it to help me lose weight. I was truly hoping this way of eating was my answer to overcoming years of body abuse, body shaming, yo-yo (sometimes extreme) dieting and basic hatred of my body. I followed it to a T. I did overindulge in unsweetened banana chips a few days in a row back in week 2 when I quickly realized what I was using them for and threw the bag out. I have had NO sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes or dairy for 30 whole days...if you don't count several dreams about ice cream I kept my fruit consumption to 20-25 berries 1-3 days a week and only had 2 sweet potatoes, 1 acorn squash and 1/2 butternut throughout the 30 days. I measured nothing else except eyeballing palm size this and thumb size this. I overcame my original fear of fat and added coconut oil to cook in and made amazing mashed cauliflower with cream of coconut. I exercised 3 days a week mixing weight training and walking. I am 5'6" and 180 pounds. I am a large framed woman with a curvy body type. I'm lucky to have a flat-ish stomach but I carry the all those extra lbs on my hips, thighs and arms. I am so sick of not fitting in my clothes. I am so sick of seeing my reflection in a window as I walk by and hating what I see. I have about 20 lbs that I should lose to be in a normal weight range for my body but the weight will not bulge. I am so unhappy. Now that I have completed my 30 days, I was hoping there was some advice you could give me to help along my weight loss. I know I wasn't supposed to count calories on the Whole30 but should I start now? Do you have any recommendations or advice? I am going to keep going and try for Whole60 and see what happens but I wanted to see if you could give me some words of encouragement or advice that will help me move toward reaching my goal. I appreciate you taking the time to read my post today. Sample meal plan: B: 3 eggs cooked in ghee with mushrooms and spinach. 3 cups black coffee L: can of tuna with 2 tbsp primal mayo and 3+ cups salad, olives, 1/4-1/2 avocado, balsamic vinegar and olive oil (sub protein with chicken salad or grilled chicken). Sometimes a handful of blueberries. D: large protein serving (beef, chicken, salmon, pot roast etc.) cooked in coconut oil or ghee and 2 heaping servings of vegetables. Plenty of water - 80+ ounces/day If I had a snack (rarely): handful of macadamia nuts or whole30 compliant beef stick Thanks again!
  4. Hello Forum, This is my first post. I just finished my first Whole 30. I really enjoyed the month, and am mostly still following it in my first week after Whole 30. I've always been health conscious, never been a large consumer of junk food, fast food, etc. My biggest downfall has always been sweets, I think. I went into this excited to slay the sugar dragon, I love not craving sweets, it's very liberating. Having said that, I think I still ate too much fruit, sometime 3 or 4 fruits a day, and probably too many dates. I have 25-30 pounds to lose, and I went into Whole 30 thinking this would be a great start. To my dismay, and surprise, I really didn't lose any weight...maybe 2 pounds. I do feel more energetic, I don't have the cravings anymore. However, it's pretty tough to keep up the enthusiasm for continuing when the weight loss isn't happening. It's amazing to me that a person could completely cut out sugar and grains, and not lose weight...makes me feel like it's hopeless, or something's just wrong with me. About 3 or 4 years ago, I lost 35's really the only time in my life I've been able to lose weight. I was following something very similar to Whole30, but it was lower fat, and lower calorie. There was no dairy, no sugar, no grain, a little fruit but not much, no nuts or nut butters, lean meats. It took about a year to lose the weight, but of course, over time it crept back, I guess it was too hard to maintain. I really don't know where to turn from here...keep doing Whole30 and continue to lot lose weight? I would appreciate any help or feedback anyone can give. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi everyone! So I started my whole 30 back on March 9th, but I restarted 8 days later after I realized I had made some mistakes the first week - the sausage I bought had sugar, I was chewing gum, and then on the 17th (after 8 days) I was miserable and ate a bunch of sweetened coconut. So I restarted, and have been doing well ever since in terms of compliance. However, I'm having some issues that are troubling - first, I keep having mild headaches. Nothing too severe, but really annoying. Second, I am not sleeping well. I used to sleep amazingly well before the whole 30, but now although I appreciate the ability to get up early, I'm waking up at 4am and tossing and turning for two hours. Third, I don't think I have lost any weight. I know this isn't about weight loss, but that is a huge incentive for me to do this. I've also been having some digestive issues. I hate talking about that department, but before whole 30 it was like clockwork. It is driving me bananas to not know what's going on or when! A few sidenotes - I am hypthyroid, and I wonder if doing the whole 30 may have knocked my dosage of Armour out of whack? Also, I've noticed in the past 1-2 weeks I have been upping my fruit consumption. I'm going to cut that back. I also cut way back on eating nuts after reading the forum. But I wondered if the fruit may be causing some problems - I realize that it is triggering my need for sugar and want to fix that. Any advice would be really appreciated!!! Thank you!
