  1. I just wanted to share my success story, in case there are vegetarians or vegans out there who need a little encouragement to give this a try. A little background: I am a long-time vegetarian with thyroid and autoimmune issues, 42 years old and with some weight I'd like to lose. When I did a Whole 30 last year, I dropped 8 pounds and experienced other great NSV's, so I thought I'd go back to what I know works. This time, I lost 9.4 pounds, and my BMI went from "overweight" to "normal!" Woohoo! Other equally-important victories: Stable/improved energy levels, better mental clarity, less bloating/gas, healthier-looking skin, no obvious autoimmune flare-ups, better self-esteem and will-power, and this time I actually got to experience Tiger Blood. I read the forums every day while on the Whole30, because I learn so much and feel so supported hearing about other people's experiences. Even though I have come across many who find the second round harder, I actually had an easier time. Here's what I changed that I think helped me: Vegans do need to consume some plant protein, and I did my best to follow the Whole30 Vegan recommendations. Last time, for protein, I ate mainly properly prepared legumes, but also included some tofu and quinoa. This time I eliminated all grains and soy, relying solely upon a variety of properly prepared legumes. This time, I made a strong effort to stick to the template. I was sure to eat within an hour of waking up, and I spaced my meals properly. I ate enough so that I was rarely hungry to the point of needing snacks. On those occasions when I did need snacks, I was mindful about what I chose (doing my best to eat a mini-meal). There was only one time when I was away from home and had to resort to a Larabar. Also, about half-way through I cut out fruit entirely--just because I really had no sugar cravings and felt like I didn't need or want it. I am so grateful and proud of myself! I hope this post helps any vegans or vegetarians who have bravely decided to go for the Whole30. You can do it!
  2. I am so hangry right now.. I'm curious to see what everyone's daily meal plans looks like. Right now mine is something like this (but again, this is day 1): 1: 6 prunes and a hand full of almonds 2: 2 clementines 3: Salad with 2 hand fulls of spinach/arugula, 1 hand full of cabbage, 1/2 avocado, splash of balsamic vinegar & EVOO 4: 2 hand fulls of carrots and a hand full of almonds 5: 1 sweet potato with whole mustard I also consume a gallon+ of water a day and have the occasional cup of black coffee. I don't think I am consuming enough of anything but I didn't get hungry until now (5:00pm). So maybe this is normal? I didn't do enough planning so I am worried about staying on track and using a sustainable meal plan. Any help is greatly appreciated. Friendly reminder: I need VEGAN suggestions and examples, not vegetarian. Thank you so much in advance! All the best, Stephanie
