  1. So I looked around on the forum and couldn't find anything like this (maybe I just didn't know what to search for, specifically) So I'm going to post my plan. I hope this helps someone else who's in the same position as me. I finished my very first Whole30 YESTERDAY! I had an amazing time with this. It wasn't too difficult and I really got a lot out of it. I'm sleeping more soundly, falling asleep faster, and waking up easier (often before my alarm even goes off). My skin has really cleared up. The migraines that I had prescription medication for have completely disappeared. My energy is pretty high despite the fact that I've completely cut out caffeine (Coca Cola was my caffeine of choice, but i would also drink tea and coffee). I don't know about my athletic performance because I gave my body a break from intense activity while I was adjusting to the new lifestyle. When it comes to physical changes, though I know that's not the goal; I did experience some. I lost 4.2 lbs, 1.4% body fat, and a total of 6 inches around my body. Overall this has been a wonderful experience and I'm totally going to keep this a part of my life and maybe even get my husband to try it out! So I'm finally at the reintroduction stage and I'm trying to get as much out of it as possible. I'm super interested in what specific foods could give me problems, rather than just the food groups. Therefore, I've made a SUPER SLOW ROLL SCHEDULE that I'm going to follow. If I follow this, it will take me another 81 days (minimum: assuming no category REALLY messes me up for more than 2 days) to finish my reintroduction. During this time I will pick a new food (that I previously ate/wouldn't mind eating again if possible) every third day to try. I will eat that food in a lot of different forms and styles throughout the day (unless the morning reintroduction immediately ruins me), while eating everything else Whole30 compliant. Then I'll go back to Whole30 for the next two days/however long it takes for negative symptoms to clear up. I followed the basic template of: 1. Legumes, 2. Gluten-free grains, 3. Dairy (split into lactose free and normal), 4. Gluten-containing grains, 5. Alcohol SUPER SLOW ROLL SCHEDULE 1. Black Beans 2. Peanut Butter 3. Soy: Edamame, Miso Soup, Soy Milk 4. Chickpeas 5. Lima Beans 6. Green Peas 7. Corn: Corn Kernels, corn tortilla chips, popcorn, Creamed Corn 8. White Rice 9. Brown Rice 10. Grits 11. Gluten-free Oats 12. Lactaid Milk 13. Skim Milk 14. Halo Top Ice Cream 15. Normal Ice Cream 16. Hard Cheese: Cheddar, Swiss, Parmesan 17. Soft Cheese 18. Greek Yogurt 19. Whipping Cream 20. Whole Wheat Bread in various forms 21. Whole Wheat Pasta 22. Biscuits 23. Vodka 24. Whiskey 25. Rum 26. Ciders 27. Wine Before I did the Whole30, I had already cut out almost all dairy (except in baking/ The Cheesecake Factory Strawberry Shortcake- OMGEEE). I drank MAYBE once every couple of months, and then it would be just one drink. And I wasn't a huge grain person except for Grits and breakfast breads. I'm aware that none of the things in my reintroduction list are things that I HAVE to have again. But they are foods that I think could come up naturally in my life, and I want to be able to make the most educated decision possible about if that food will actually be worth it. Therefore, I will introduce them all. Knowledge is power, after all. I may also extend a bit longer and try out different combinations of these foods to see if that affects me more than just the individual food. For example- what would a bowl of cereal with gluten and dairy, do to me? Does that still happen if I use almond milk, or Lactaid Milk? And then maybe try out different desserts that have a few of the inflammatory ingredients in them. I know this may seem excessive or too intense. But this would really satisfy the math/science minded + organizational part of my brain. I have no doubt that I'll do another Whole30 again one day. I actually really look forward to it. I'm welcome to any suggestions/comments. But please keep them constructive- and don't try to talk me out of doing it this way. I'm already going to do it. But if you can think of a way to make it better organized, or if you have done something similar to what I'm about to try to do- I'd love to hear about your experience!
  2. Hi all! So I have yet to actually start a whole 30, but it is on the bucket list. My issue now is that I work at a restaurant 9-5, and there is a time 11:00-2:00 which is our "busy time" and we are not allowed to order from the kitchen, hardly allowed to eat food. By 2:00, I'm starving; our break is simply a quick second to run to the back and scarf food down, in which I tend to make poor decisions later due to the fluctuation in blood sugar and the stress of being hungry/worrying what to eat and when. Any suggestions and tips on how to combat this.. Thanks!
  3. Hi, I'm starting the whole30 this Friday, July 1... Yay! My work schedule is pretty normal. However, on Monday, July 4 to Tuesday, July 5 I will be working on overnight shift from 12am to 8am (Tuesday morning). Should I be eating during that overnight shift? How do I go about eating the day before the overnight shift (Monday), the overnight shift, and the rest of that day (Tuesday)? Please help! I'm quite confused on what I should do! I know I'll be sleeping the rest of the day on Tuesday. I don't know if this will throw off my whole30 schedule...? Thanks so much!!! - Amanda

    Beginning 4/7 for an anti-allergy reset

    This will be my first time doing the Whole30 program, although I already keep a gluten and dairy free diet most of the time. I need to take it to the next level. Here are my reasons for doing the program: I get frequent, severe sinus infections when I eat dairy. My under-the-tongue glands swell when I eat various grain-based foods. I thought it was just wheat and my symptoms were very mild for a few years but they've become severe in the last month. Within a few hours of eating/drinking anything grain-based, my glands are throbbing. I need to listen to my body and stop giving it things it doesn't want. My mom is battling cancer and in her journey, has learned the true value of caring for your body through food choices. I, too, have learned a lot about the effects of less-than-great food choices through watching her and observing myself. Thus, the only reason I still make bad choices is out of sugar addiction or self-destructive tendencies. My hope is that after completing my first Whole30, I'll be able to see a big enough difference that I will be motivated by the benefits of living a whole life, rather than being motivated by the pain/exhaustion of making less-than-healthy daily choices. I'm 23, about to graduate college, and I manage an office that must remain open 24/7 for student safety. My schedule is all over the place, I never get near enough sleep, and I'm surrounded by booze and peers who are as far from a whole30 lifestyle as can be. It won't be easy, but I'm tired of feeling horrid half the time from sugar, grains, and booze. There may never be a perfect time to do this, so no excuses from here on out. Now is as good a time as any, and this way I'll by happier and healthier by graduation:D
  5. I'm on Day 15 of my first W30, and I'd like to optimize my meal schedule. Advice would be appreciated! Thanks! My questions based on the proposed schedule below: Does the spacing and frequency of my meals look alright? Can my M4/dinner substitute as my post-workout meal? Or should I be eating something in the car on the half-hour drive home from the gym to get the most out of my recovery? Can I just have a little more starch and a little less fat at dinner and try to eat within an hour of my workout to get the same results? My workouts aren't that intense. I know, I know, processed foods are terrible, but will it kill me to have an Epic bar as a pre-workout meal a couple of times a week? I don't have time to stop and microwave anything, or eat anything with a fork. Is a salted, cold HB egg my only eat-while-driving option for pre-workout? Should I be worried about eating M4 so close to bed? I can't think of a way to eat dinner any earlier. Note: I'm starving when I wake up but my current schedule doesn't have me eating M1 until 3 hours later. My schedule now: Wake up at 5AM, shower, rush out the door at 6:20AM. Between 6:20 and 8AM I'm in the car, on the bus, or walking (i.e. limited and/or no opportunity for eating) - drink a little bulletproof coffee during commute M1 when I get to work (8AM) - finish rest of bulletproof coffee M2 (12PM) M3 (4PM) 5PM-6PM on the bus Pre-workout meal in my car as I drive to the gym 6:15PM-7:15PM workout (30 min. moderate intensity bodyweight workout or 1 hour of yoga*) Half an hour to drive home from the gym Prepare quick M4, sit down to eat around 8PM Asleep by 10PM *if I do the yoga class from 7-8PM then I don't get to eat dinner until 8:45PM My proposed schedule: Wake up at 5AM, eat M1 at 5:30AM, leave for work at 6:20 M2 at 10:30AM M3 at 3:30PM 5PM-6PM on the bus Pre-workout meal in my car as I drive to the gym 6PM-7:15PM workout Half an hour to drive home from the gym Prepare quick M4, sit down to eat around 8PM Shower at night to save time in the morning Asleep by 10PM
