  1. Hello. This is my first time doing Whole30. I have fibromyalgia and a gluten allergy. I am on Day 9. ALWAYS when I eat I get incredibly cranky, dizzy, and tired to the point of not being able to stand up. Since starting this diet ALL of those problems have gone away. I’ve had so much energy, I don’t get dizzy and cranky when I eat, and I haven’t taken any involuntary naps after eating. Until today. It’s come back and I’m looking for advice as I’m scared, because I was so relived everything was going well. For context, I haven’t slipped or cheated. Last night I ate out for the first time, I had unseasoned boiled chicken and green beans and broccoli at Applebee’s thought. Today my menstraul cycle started. And what I just ate was chili lime chicken breast Cobb salad recipe from the Whole30 instagram. 20 minutes after eating I got extremely dizzy and cranky. I got so tired I couldn’t stand. I had to lay down and legitimately fought to stay conscious and couldn’t. This hasn’t happened since I started the diet and I desperately don’t want it to start again because it’s scary. If anyone has been through this or has any idea what’s happening to me, I’d really appreciate the input. I was really happy being healthy for once. Thanks
  2. Hello world. I will be doing, not attempting, nor trying, the whole30 reset program for 30 days starting February 1st. I'm terrified because I know that I am a huge snacker and have a giant sweet tooth. But I know my body needs this, so I am starting to plan. I hope to find a buddy to help me through this because I know I will not be able to do it without support. Thanks for reading!

    Sugar Addict

    I am TERRIFIED. I am your class A sugar addict and I don't know how I will get through the next 30 days without falling off the rails. Is anyone else a sugar addict here? How did you keep on track? What if I can't do it? I really want some of those paleo pancakes that's been banished! HELP! -- Kirralee
  5. Yep. I'm on day 30 of my Whole30 tomorrow. I am a very black-and white-type person. I'm scared of reintroducing things because I'm scared I will binge on unhealthy things and let it all go. The strict rules of the Whole30 were good for me, but I want to be able to have other things too. I know I will feel guilty when I eat things that are not Whole30, because they've just been forbidden for 30 days! Maybe I'm crazy, but I'm not looking forward to this!I need a rule book for life post-Whole 30. Something really fixed. I feel all overwhelmed... Legumes - Really sacred of these - feel like they are just not healthy. But financially, we really need to add them to our diet as last month has taken a huge toll on our expenses (and that's with eating tons of chicken wings and odd bits of meat). I'm thinking 2 times a week, and only eating them if they are sprouted first? Non-gluten grains - same as above Dairy - maybe just plain yogurt here and there. I love milk and hot chocolate, oh my, I used to drink milk every day. I can't live without that FOREVER. SWYPOs etc. - special occasions only. Trying not to include dessert except the ocassional fruit. Gluten and refined sugars - I want this to be only on special occasions. Like if we're at someone's house and they serve cake etc. I have some spelt breadcrumbs that I used to like using. Maybe I'll stick to the organic corn flake crumbs and use them sparingly. I am craving sweet food now I know it's the end. Help me! I just want a cookie!

    Starting July 7th

    Hi. My name is Melissa, and I am 30 years old starting this. I normally don't commit myself 100 percent, but I am determined to right now. Been feeling crappy, gained and continuing to gain weight, which is not making me happy. But this is more about weight but giving up addictions to sugar, food, and that calming glass of wine at the end of the day (I am going to miss that so much!). The coffee with milk too will be hard, but I am ready. I am excited to take this on and learn from it. Welcome to all doing this journey with me, much love and support.
  7. Hi Everyone -- I'm starting Whole30 on Monday, May 11th...I'm an eleven year cancer survivor who has always struggled with weight issues along with allergies and now, my husband and I are facing infertility issues. I desperately need to get healthy, fast, and a friend at work is a week into her second Whole30 journey and has talked me into joining. In order to have children and stop the everlasting symptoms and side effects of the cancer that burdened my life years ago, I need to change my whole thought process with food and learn to love myself again. I'm scared. I'm afraid. I'm nervous. I'm worried. I've never been able to stick with something longer than a week -- so, please be with me on this journey and send encouragement that it's only 30 days....and I can do anything for 30 because the benefits will be outstanding. In the Whole30 introduction, it said that this "isn't Hard." But, it is scary and I've conquered a lot of "harder", any helpful advice would be great! Thanks, - mcki0133
  8. Hi everyone. I have committed to doing this January 6th. I bought "It Starts with Food" and read 80% today. Needless to say I have had numerous epiphanies and am excited to get through the first week and see my energy increase and my afternoon and nightly snacking decrease. I have been obese all my life. I am addicted to sugar. It's the biggest Achilles's heel in my life. I have been working out consistently for 3 years but have hit a plateau for a year now and something needs to change. I have a support system--4 people in my life are doing this with me. We are swapping recipes, doing meal prep together and we CrossFit together. I plan on writing down all the things that were brought up in the book (snacking times, knee/joint issues, rosacea) and seeing what changes as the month wears on. I blog frequently about my journey here: Looking forward to any support people might have, I am sure I will encounter issues along the way! --Christine

    nervous about starting!

    Hi! I am SO nervous about not being able to sustain this plan and failing at something yet again. I was recently diagnosed with acid reflux, and, in addition to my post nasal drip, allergies, fatigue, obstructive sleep apnea and various other ailments, I feel like it's time to make a change. My doctor simply prescribed prilosec for the reflux, but I do not want to be on yet another medication- I am only 31! I'm hoping this plan can help solve some of my issues and am drawing on all stores of resolve, and hopefully support from you guys, to be able to get through it!
  10. Hi all, I am starting my first Whole 30 today! I am incredibly nervous and would love some company along the way if anyone else is starting today too! I have always struggled with my weight and constantly been on and off diets for about 10 years. Therefore, I believe my digestive system is pretty out of whack considering what I have been putting it through. I am hoping this experience will help heal my body and make me a healthier person. Just a little bit about me... I am 27, married almost a year. My husband will not be completing the Whole30 with me but will usually eat what I make for dinner so that is helpful. However there are still oreos in my pantry... I have a pretty sedentary job. I don't get to do a lot of moving throughout the day but I do generally workout about 6 times a week. I completed Insanity a month ago and restarted that workout program two weeks ago. So I will also be completing that exercise program for the second time while doing my first Whole30. I am by no means in super great shape. I am overweight by 24 pounds, which is an improvement as I was about 8 pounds heavier two months ago. I really want this to be a success! Manda
