  1. Hey guys! Just wanted to holla at ya’ll and say hey! I’m starting the whole30 as of today! My main motivation to kick start this is to help with my mental health and also maybe reduce the number of migraines I get. So far i’m managed ok but I AM STARVING! No matter how much I have i’m still super hungry. This passes right?

    Starting 2/17

    My husband is having gastric bypass surgery at the end of March. The diet he has to follow 2 weeks before surgery is very strict, so we going to ease into by doing Whole 30. My best friend has been on it for 3 months and is very satisfied.
  3. Hi My wife and I are starting Whole 30 on Monday 12/31. Have read through the book, talked to others that have completed the program, have a plan for the first week of meals, and will be cleaning the fridge and pantry and shopping this weekend. We feel ready to go. I am looking to improve general health and weight control. My wife has a number of medical related issues (diabetes II, high blood pressure, stroke recovery and weight) we hope to make progress with as well. I am confident that once I post this, I will have committed myself to work through the 30 days. While my wife has agreed and seems committed, my greatest fear is that I will need to insist too often that she follow through. I am her caregiver and forcing choices on her can have negative impacts. By posting here I am going against my general grain of keeping things inside in the hopes of being prepared to ask for, and then finding, advice and support as needed, in the coming 30 days.
  4. Hi Everyone, I'm doing my second one starting Thursday, November 1st. I'm a 42 year old father of 4 little ones and have been eating a ton of junk the past year or so. I'm really suffering the consequences and ready to turn things around. Also, my wife is struggling with some digestive issues (serious food restrictions) and I see this as my way of leading the way for her so it can be a little easier for her. I am a all-or-nothing personality so if I do this I'll do it 100% but if I slip even a little bit I'll crash and burn in flames of candy. Anyone out that want to join and get lots of positive support. I see there's a lot of women on here which is cool but there's got to be some men out there that want to start to improve their health. I'm thinking of doing a daily photo just to show the effects. Who's in?

    4/2/2018 Starting Whole30

    Hello, I am starting my 2nd round of whole30 on 4/2 (waiting until AFTER Easter). Just looking to see if there is anyone else that is starting around the same time. I loved my first whole30 so much and am looking forward to that Tiger Blood again! I think this will kickstart my healthy summer. I have some tricks that i learned during the first round (like always having approved snacks available, meal prepping every sunday, and I know what products to use now), but I'd like some accountability assistance!
  6. Last Tuesday, my doctor and I had a discussion concerning my slowly rising cholesterol numbers. My ratio is at 4.6 as of last Tuesday. She really wants me on some kind of medication, but I told her that statins were not happening. I would consider an alternative. She offered Welchol. We have been having this discussion for a year now with each lipid panel worse than the one before. I told her I would give it three more months, and if I couldn't get my readings to improve, I would try the Welchol. So, I have been on Whole 30 for a week. I am an old hand at Atkins/South Beach/lowcarbhighfat anything. I have never stayed with anything long enough to see if it really worked. Getting rid of sugar and simple carbs seemed to help me lose weight, but again I never stayed with it. Since the focus now is on getting my cholesterol under control, and I don't want to have a heart attack ever, I am determined to see this through. If I lose weight in the process, that will be a much appreciated bonus. I am a healthy and fairly active 69 year old female. I have a young very active 9 month old puppy who needs to get out and run everyday. She is really motivating me to get out and move. We walk from 2-3 miles a day now. I am also practicing Intermittent Fasting. This is easy for me. My mother was always thin, and it occurred to me that she unknowingly practiced IF. Through out my entire life I never saw her eat anything after dinner was done. She cleaned up the kitchen, and it was closed. It didn't matter if we finished at 4,5 or 6pm. She never ate a thing in the evening. Whole 30 was really hard for the first several days because all most all ready made foods: sausage, ketchup, dressings etc all have something in them that is not acceptable. Going to Whole Foods helped. I was able to find Primal Kitchen mayonnaise, salad dressings, ketchup and bacon that was acceptable. I have tried a few things that I have never done before like using spaghetti squash for spaghetti. It was ok, crunchy but it did fill me up and at 30 calories a cup, what the heck. Giving up all dairy has been the hardest thing for me. Not being able to put Parmesan cheese on my spaghetti sauce last night was hard. No alcohol is hard but not as hard as dairy. Not being able to have any sweetener real or fake is hard, too, but because I can have fruit, it isn't so tough. I bought the cookbook for Whole 30 but was disappointed as usual. The recipes are too far out there for me. I want to know how to make simple things and am not into spicy foods at all. I guess I need a Whole 30 compliant meat loaf or tuna "noodle" casserole recipe. I am one week in and take it one day at a time, sometimes one hour at a time. I just don't let myself get hungry. That is the kiss of death for me on this program.
