  1. This is the first time I have ever joined/posted to any forum. It has never really interested me to get into online conversations, but I have found a lack of support/information on breastfeeding and doing the Whole30. I think I have found one woman that blogged about completing a Whole30 and maintaining her milk supply. So here I am, ending Day 4 of my 3rd Whole30. Let me add that I have started many of Whole30’s since my first try/completion, but have only managed to complete it one other time. The last one I started I ended of pregnant (didn’t think we could have children) 9 months before our wedding date! My doctor advised me to quit so that I was not restricting the baby from a “balanced diet” and the stress of removing food. (To this day, I wish I wouldn’t have listened) I ended up going off the rails for my entire pregnancy and maternity leave. I ended up gaining 4o lbs (I do not know how it wasn’t more) I was already 10 lbs over weight when I got pregnant. I have yoyo’d back and forth with healthy life and then binge on everything I want life. I am from New Orleans and work on the French Quarter so temptation is EVERYWHERE. It’s culturally engrained in you to drink with family, friends, co-workers. It’s just what you do. When I am to go grab a drink, and I tell them I’m on the Whole30 you should see the looks I get! People try to talk me out of it, tell me I’m crazy, tell me how they absolutely could not give up drinking for 30 days. Honestly, quitting drinking and eating sugary treats, creamy coffees, and fried food- I have never felt better in my life. Probably the same reason I keep coming back to the reset. I recently started to listen to Melissa Hartwig’s book, Food Freedom, while I make my hour and fifteen minute commute to work. But enough about my back story! My current situation is I want to live a healthy lifestyle and not be emotionally attached to food and alcohol. I want to continue to breastfeed my child and worry about my milk supply tanking as a result. I wonder what other women are experiencing. Am I alone out there ? Anyone else trying our Whole30 while breastfeeding and working full time ?

    Wedding/Travel Food

    Hi y'all! So I am heading to a wedding about 4 hours from home next weekend, and staying the night with some friends. I'm planning to eat before the ceremony, and have some nuts or avocado handy during, but I'm not sure what to do about packing food for the next day. We're staying in an Air BnB and planning on probably eating out the next day, but not until lunch time since everyone else will be hungover (I'm the DD. They took advantage of my Whole30 REAL QUICK). I don't know what to bring for breakfast that can safely sit in my car for 10+hours (driving, ceremony, reception, driving again) and be eaten for breakfast. I got a cooler but I'm a little concerned it won't keep eggs or tuna cold enough, and I don't want to spend the weekend living on Larabars. I don't want to eat Larabars/RX Bars at all actually, since I have serious sugar addiction and I don't want my "sugar dragon" to think I'm feeding it. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Wedding to go to

    This week - when I will be on the 6th day of my whole30 I have a wedding to attend. Not only do I need to go there but I also need to photograph there. On the one hand that is a good thing as it will keep me busy but on the other hand; when I am tired I am afraid I might give in to temptations.. I'm not so much afraid for the weddingcake but the dinner is going to be a challenge... Any tips for dealing with weddings in particular? It's really not an option to bring food. The couple (also friends) will be insulted if we do! But I also don't want to jeopardize my whole30...
  4. Tomorrow will be day 10 of my whole30 and I will be attending a wedding. I'm a little stressed out over what to eat.. Dessert/alcohol is no issue for me but during cocktail hour and dinner I'm a little nervous about navigating what I can and can't eat... Any advice?

    W30 June 1st

    Hey everyone! I'm planning on starting a Whole 30 for the month of June, and was wondering if there was anyone out there who might be starting the same date?! I successfully completed my first Whole 30 last September, but previous attempts since then have been difficult :/ I'm getting married on July 5th and of course I really want to feel and look the best I possibly can for the event, so I'm determined to succeed in this w30! Support is good though, would anyone like to join me?!
