  1. Hello everyone! Whole30 enjoyer, first time forum writer. I did the whole30 from January-March. During that time I was introducing my workout routine to heavier weights and, thought feeling great, was struggling. I broke out of the whole30 in April and really enjoyed a lot of progress in my weight lifting. The protein supplements that are not whole30 approved seem to give my body a boost better than the approved. Unfortunately I completely fell off the band wagon and began to eat utter junk again (I stopped going to the local Taco Bell because the cashier new me by my first name). I feel awful and restarted the Whole30 again yesterday (8/1/2017) and want to continue that diet for as long as I'm able (sans the occasional social event), but I love lifting and don't see that great of results when partaking in this diet. Does anyone have any advice? I really want to tighten my (figurative) belt here calorie, carb and jiggly stomach wise. Thanks in advance and looking forward to learning from you! Best, Pat
  2. I was on the road and packed a Cappucino Larabar as one of my emergency snacks (didn't realize it was noncompliant at the time) and ate it with a hard boiled egg and 1/2 avocado. When I got home I read that they were not compliant. Do I need to start over? Thanks in advance!
  3. Hello all, So I have to stay that I am new to the whole30 program, started reading about the website after I found out about it on the Paleo Reddit channels and ordered both the book and kindle version to read on my tablets (both excellent by the way) I understand that this is a lifestyle change, I wanted to try something new to give me a new perspective on food, get more energy, better sleep and ultimately lose the excess weight I have gained recently. Though after I cheated and did weight myself (Day 10 vs Day 18) I noticed I had gained a lot of weight, that made me think of what have I done wrong, so I started searching these forums for answers, read many posts from people asking about weight gain, restarting due to the fact that they had eaten illegal type foods in the 30 days, and responses from moderators. I found out that the deli meat and bacon I was consuming (even though w/o preservative/nitrate had sugar in it), so I read quite a bit these forums/online blogs about what type of bacon is allowed, where you could buy the recommended ones, etc. I figured I lived w/o Bacon before Whole30, I can cut it and start all over again. Though also after reading many other posts I noticed that I also need to be more careful with nuts & fruits, especially that I am known to binge on fruits and sometimes nuts. So I am planning to restart with these in minds: - No Bacon unless I get it from recommended places (online or retailers) - Cutting Bananas and Dates (I tend to binge on them when available) - Favoring Berries over Apples/Oranges (I tend to binge on fruits late at night) - Cut down Nuts (Walnuts, Hazlenuts) - Cut down on Coconut Milk/Cream for my Coffee or go for the lighter options. Couple of questions: - Are there any recipes for breakfast when you get sick of eggs/meats but give you enough protein for the day? - What is the max daily recommended amount for consuming fats such as Ghee/Coconut Oil and Avocados ? How about Coconut Milk/Cream ? Thanks, Houman
  4. Hi Everyone, I'm in a dilemma with myself. I completed a whole 30 last year around this time. I finally was able to lose weight and get cravings under control, felt like maybe I had found a way to eat that would make me HEALTHIER every year, but by the end, I started getting really bratty. As in, I was all about "I CAN'T have this!" and "I CAN'T have that. Why can other people eat that but not me?" "It's not fair!! Why do I have to do this??" WAH WAH WAH. Anyway, my poisoned victim-y mind turned against me when Whole 30 was over. I skipped the reintroductory phase. I went completely 180, regained all of the weight I lost and then an extra 10 in the last year. My eating habits went down the tube. In other words, major backfire. I want to do the Whole 30 again for so many reasons (getting back off the SAD diet again, sugar dragon, finding balance with food, weight loss, sticking to better nutrition after), but I'm worried that I will turn into this annoying person again and sabotage myself afterwards. Has anyone else gone through this a second time with a better outcome? Any tips for maintaining a better outlook? I want to fix this unhealthy relationship with food...
  5. Hey everyone! I'm attempting my 2nd Whole 30 on Jan 2nd. I did one in November - and although I did almost perfect - I did break the rules a few times. So I'm planning on doing it 100% this time around. I'm going to give some info on my experience with Paleo and I'm hoping if anyone has any input - please give me some advice! Thanks! I'm not overweight by any means but I have always had to watch what I eat and stay active to stay in a good weight range. I switched to about 80% Paleo lifestyle in May of this year - ditching processed foods altogether. I am very active with work and was a runner - about 3-4 days per week. I lost 5 pounds right away. I felt great and I felt like it was effortless. I was then hurt in a work accident and had to be in the hospital for 7 days. I then lost 10-15lbs in just a matter of a couple weeks. I saw numbers on the scale I had never seen before. I was not allowed to run or work for 3 months. I kept up with my 80% Paleo lifestyle, and about a month and 1/2 after my accident my weight started climbing back up = 1-2lbs per week. Then got up and above my original weight before the accident. By this time I was back to running, started strength training, did a 95% Whole 30 in November and still have not lost a single pound. After the Whole30 in November I didn't lost any weight but did feel less bloated and my jeans fit better. When I took my measurements I had lost 0.5" off my waist - but that was it. I'm still currently eating 80-90% Paleo - as I feel great and really believe in the science. I have tracked what I eat - low carb, moderate protein, moderate fat macros, drink drink almost 0 calories, calorie range around 1400-1600/day, I sleep 11pm -7am, I do LISS and resistance training plus have a very active job. I do eat plenty. I am never hungry and if I am I eat- I have eggs/kale/spinach for breakfast, have protein + veggies for lunch and dinner. I follow all the rules of diet and exercise to get leaner - and it's not working. In the past I have been able to just clean up my diet a little bit and workout a little more - and boom - 5 lbs gone....this time - nothing. I was hoping someone could give me some words of advice/encouragement... like it's from the stress of the accident and one day your body will adjust - when? The accident was 5/31/14! To give numbers - prior to accident I was 125 - I'm 5'2". I liked that weight. My lowest was 113 after the accident and now I'm about 131. I'd say it's muscle - but my mid section is not lean by any means. I know it's more than numbers on the scale - but it's just so frustrating to work so hard and eat so well and not see results when everyone else seems to be getting them! Thanks for letting me vent!
  6. Starting Today (Again)

    Hi everyone: Introducing myself. I'm 43 y.o. mom of 3 active boys (ages 7, 9, 11). We're about to hit the busy season with sports so I'll be needing to make sure I have some grab and go meals available. I wish the family were supporting me and doing the the Whole 30 with me, but they aren't. Husband is supportive and will eat what I cook, but kids are not. I was diagnosed with Celiac about 2 months ago and have done well eliminating gluten. I'm also allergic to sulfites. I've made it 2 1/2 weeks on a whole30 before and then slipped up and haven't gotten back. I felt better and had lost a little weight so why haven't I been able to get back. My biggest problem areas (snacking both due to hunger and emotions), making sure I'm prepped and have food available (especially on those really busy days), and sometimes just having bad food around (which I try to limit but my family loves tortilla chips and popcorn - two of my favorites). And I have been a carb and sugar addict and I don't do moderation which is a main reason for doing the whole 30 because my system really needs a restart and I need to slay those dragons. Oh and I do like to have a drink (martini) with hubby 1-2 times/week so that's also very tempting. I KNOW this is NOT hard like other things, but breaking habits isn't necessarily easy either. I'm also working to get back in shape. I have always been active and love a combination of cardio+weights. However, back in October, I started having sciatica and hip pain. With a lot of chiropractor, massage, and PT I am slowly working it out (no pun intended) but very anxious to get back to a more active lifestyle. I also feel SO much better when I am able to be more active. I am really looking forward to completing a Whole 30 and feeling better. Cheers and Ciao to sugars, grains, etc.! -caroline
