  1. Hello, as the title indicates, I THOUGHT I was on Day 24. I was SO proud of myself for not cheating and for sticking with it. Then it came to my attention that my medication that i have been taking four times a day has sugar in it. What?!?!?! Back story: I was having digestive issues for a few months, was prescribed questran (4 times per day), and was taking religiously as it was the only thing that was helping. My colleague suggested I try The Whole30 thinking my issues might be diet related. I did some research and decided this was for me! I found it odd that i was not experiencing the symptoms as outlined in the what to expect calendar (no sugar cravings etc). Then my son questioned whether or not the medication had sweetener... Yes, it does. It contains sucrose. I am frustrated and unsure what to do at this point. I was doing SO well, really sticking with the program. I have a biochemistry background and understand the science behind the program and why if you cheat, you need to begin over. At this point, have I even been on the program? Does anything I've done even count? I would say I need to start over, but I will be on this medication for an indefinite amount of time. Does this mean I just need to find a different program as this one may not be for me? I'd like to hear your thoughts. Thanks!!

    Day 24

    I am on Day 24 today, and have been experiencing some intense cravings. I attribute it to eating a medjool date with almond butter as a snack to hold me over last Wednesday. Since then, I've been craving dried fruit and fruits. I've been giving into the cravings, which has been disappointing at times, since I know the dangers of fruit, etc....but I'm finding it very challenging to battle these cravings. It seems that if I allow myself any fruit or dried fruit, my mind/body just want more, more more! This makes me really nervous about reintroduction and wondering whether or not the elimination process of Whole30 can produce these types of cravings? Any recommendations?

    Is sugar making me anxious?

    Hello! I completed my first Whole 30 last week and decided to very slowly try reintroducing foods. I love love love sugar, did I tell you I love sugar? I am 100% an addict. I believe the 30 days may be the longest I have ever gone without a sugary treat or any added sugar to foods. I decided after the 30 days I would eat some Starburst jelly beans (MY FAV!!!), I was very disappointed when I realized they weren't as mouth watering as they were before Whole 30. WOOHOO! Guess what? I ate them anyway, not as many as I would have 2 months ago - only about a 1/2 a cup. This was last Friday evening. I woke up the next morning feeling fine, ate a high protein breakfast, went for a pedicure, then went to a restaurant with a friend where I could not eat anything but fruit. I also had a Lara bar. We were sitting there chatting and I starting feel terribly anxious, nauseous, jittery and dizzy. My friend drove me home and I bounced back in about 4+ hours, but it was very unexpected. Fast forward to last night, I ate Cadbury chocolate eggs - the small ones. I had a one serving small bag. Again, not flavorful and not worth it. I woke up this morning feeling fine, by noon I was super anxious, feeling like I had taken No-Doze (those pills we used to take to help us stay up to study), my mind was racing, I could not chill out. I have anxiety and I have panic attacks. I have been on anti-depressants for 25 years. The Whole 30 has cleared the cob webs out of my head and helped with my daily anxiety. Was this a sugar side effect? Has anyone else ever experienced this? Thank you!!!

    Success while snacking?? Migraines too.

    Hi there everyone, I'm writing to ask about your experiences with Whole30 if you didn't stick to big meals (i.e., following all the rules but not all the recommendations). I'm at the end of day 3, right now, and I feel like I can manage Whole30 as long as I can graze throughout the day and eat fruit as much as I like (probably five+ servings a day). Questions: have you done Whole30 this way? And if so, how did you feel about your overall results? I'm not capable of eating big meals (I get full too soon- I'm fairly petite) but I really don't get the concept of satiety that lasts for hours. I get full, then hungry rather quickly. A bit about me: My regular diet is pretty typical for Southern California: mostly vegetarian with some chicken and fish. I do eat a lot of carbs, but don't drink alcohol, I avoid fried foods, msg, processed foods & snacks. I'm saying this to give you an idea of which things are and are not big sacrifices for me. I'd love to hear from other people who started in a similar position to me. I understand that Whole30's aim is to help people change their hormones in a way that would give them more of a sense of fullness. I'm open to the idea that I may be able to eat larger meals with bigger gaps as the month goes on... but right now that sacrifice is too great ob tip of everything else. I had a migraine in each of these first three days ( for which I took triptan medicine) so struggle of this experience has been compounded. Thanks for reading. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Weird Added Sugar Issue

    So I’m on day 12 of my first Whole30 and I came across a product that threw me with added sugar. I’m not sure if it’s off limits or not because it doesn’t have any form of sugar as an ingredient, but it has “Incl. 4g of added sugars” in the Nutrition Facts! Does anyone know if that’s an issue? Or why it would be there and not in the ingredients? thank you!

    Sugar in my coffee

    Hello All -- I am winding up my Whole30 with no slips except for one Lara Bar a day and perhaps a bit too much cashew butter so I don't think weight loss is going to factor too large in my results. But I am thrilled I haven't had any alcohol or refined sugar throughout (a big change for me). Truthfully I don't miss the alcohol or the pastries and ice cream as much as I thought I would, but I do miss having a little sweetness in my morning coffee. In my reintroduction I'd like to add some sweetness to my coffee and I'd love to know which sugar is least damaging and most recommended? Is coconut sugar a better choice? All thoughts appreciated. Best, Shannon
  8. Hi there, I am at the re-introduction phase and having issues with almost all of the food I didn't have during the whole 30! When I reintroduced wheat and soy (wheat, then soy), I had allergic reactions: hives, itchiness, and even throat-closing (I was almost getting Epipen!). Prior to the whole 30, I have no problem with wheat or soy, other than minor digestion issues. Sugar gave me a migraine (wasn't able to work for a half day). Rice, which was introduced the first even before wheat and soy, turned out to be OK, although I had a bit of bloating and tiredness. I feel like I am "oversensitive" to the food that I didn't have during the whole 30. At the post-whole 30, has anyone experienced allergic reactions (or allergy-like symptoms) to the food that you used to be OK with?

    Fed Up!

    Watch the trailer of this compelling documentary on sugar, the fast food industry and a compelling reason to keep going with our Whole30.
  10. Hi! Starting reintroduce on Tuesday! I have never done reintroduce before, and I'm a little confused about the added sugar part. The reintroduction part on the Whole30 website says to add one thing back for a day while keeping the rest of your diet whole30, then go back to Whole30 for 2 days, fine. My question though is what about things like dairy and gluten. I saw a whole30er I follow on instagram use Noosa yogurt for dairy reintro, which for SURE has added sugar. Is it okay to have legumes/gf grains/dairy/gluten with added sugar? I've been unsure about how to reintroduce these things because most of them have added sugar. I was thinking of getting my beloved soy latte at starbucks for legumes but I know that the soy at starbucks has sugar. Any advice would be appreciated. :-)
