  1. Hi everyone, I couldn't find this in the book or in other posts. I know that I'm supposed to only add one food group per day and to not eat legumes again when I test grains, for instance. But should I keep my meals template compliant on the reintroduction days? For instance, I'm thinking of using chana masala (this recipe, one of my favourite dishes) for dinner on my legumes reintroduction day, though without rice, obviously. I'm not sure how much protein the chickpeas contain, but it is undoubtably less than a palm sized piece of meat. So should I eat more protein on the side? (Usually I wouldn't do so when eating this dish.) And should I still pay attention that my meals contain enough fat as well?
  2. Hello! I started my Whole30 on Monday and today was my first [evening] gym session since. I work until 5, so my plan has been to get home at 5:30 and before or after I change for the gym, I'd eat my protein and fat for pre workout per the template. Today (first time) was a hard boiled egg and half an avocado. Then I'd get home just after 7:30 and we'd eat dinner then. However, tonight I ate AFTER 8pm, which sounds/feels SO late. Can you even eat too late on this? I'm sure you can. The template says to stoayp eating a few hours before bed; I'd take that to mean at least 3. That should work, but only for today, as I don't hope to make going to bed after 11 a habit. Especially when i start my 10 hour days again next week and I work at 6:30a.m. And also, this means I didn't get a post workout meal. Given the timeline of my evening I don't know if I'll be able to fit that in. Not w/o eating a super early dinner...which even in that case would replace the pre workout snack. The pre wo snack is supposed to be small protein which dinner isn't. And the post workout is supposed to be a bonus meal...which it isn't in my current timeline So, really I'm looking for advice on how to handle and properly space out my pre evening workout snack, post workout snack, and dinner when I get home 5:30, leave for the gym before 6:15, and get home around 7:45. HELP! lol. Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!
  3. I created this food log this morning to have right before my eyes everyday. Feel free to use if this is helpful to you! (Feedback welcome.) Day One going great so far! Wendy Daily food diary.pdf
  4. I am looking at the meal template and am confused about fats, fruit. The meal template says closed handful of nuts, thumbsize of oils, handfuls of olives (hate olives) and handfuls of shredded coconut plus butters????? And the fruit.....I thought I read somewhere to limit fruit to 2 servings a day????? I can actually do without fruit, maybe an apple or banana, 1 per week.... I do so much better with following macros (concrete boundaries) ....how do you know if you are eating enough? I think I could just sit here and shed a few tears. I was on a program called Ideal Protein from July - December and I lost 40 lbs. I've been floundering since going off it. I am terrified of ending up back where I started. I know what the body does if you don't eat enough. I still want to lose 25ish lbs. I exercise 5-6 days - weights and cardio. PLEASE, is there someone who would be willing to mentor me thru this till I get going??? Patty
  5. I am wondering if there is a guideline for how much homemade mayo to use with each meal. The meal template says to use 1-2 thumb sized portions of fats per meal, but I find myself putting together a lot of quick meals using mayo for my fat. For example, mixing diced chicken with greens or other prepared veggies, and mixing in some mayo. Given that the mayo is mostly fat, should I be sticking to a couple of tablespoons per meal?
  6. I just finished my first Whole30 and have a few questions about how Reintroduction works: How do I reintroduce formerly off-limit food groups while also using the Whole30 meal planning template of palm-sized portion of protein, plate of veggies, and a thumb-sized portion of fat? For instance, I'm supposed to add legumes back into my diet tomorrow. Do beans count as a protein or a fat? Should I replace my usual source of protein with beans that day, or just add a few spoonfuls to my regular source of protein? Some non-W30 food, like alcohol, have effects I am already familiar with. Does this "food group" need it's own stage of reintro? What have you experienced W30ers done in the past that has helped you evaluate the effects of those food groups? How did you go about creating your own guidelines for eating after Whole30? Do any of you know where I can find some postW30 eating guidelines aimed to encourage weight loss?
  7. So, I am part of a tough love whole30 forum on Facebook, and another member and I were having a disagreement about volume of food. Background: I did a Whole30 in April'13 and lost 12 pounds effortlessly. I then got pregnant (yay!) and had my baby in Feb '14. I started what ended up being a Whole51 on May 19. I only lost 4 pounds. Looking back at what I was eating, I'm pretty sure my issues were: 1) Too much Fruit and 2) TOO MUCH FOOD. This other member suggests that you eat until you are hungry (got it) and if you are still hungry, eat ANOTHER MEAL on the template - she has had great success (lost 85 pounds) but she also started somewhere around 300 pounds. My start weight at the beginning of my '14 Whole30 was 183. My position is that it is entirely possible to eat too much of the right foods, which will hamper weight loss. Unlimited food is NOT part of the template - which I know was my issue this spring. The reason I am asking here is because in our forum, people are asking for help trouble shooting, and her answer is always "You aren't eating enough". I don't think that IS always the answer.
