After having my first successful run with Whole30 in January, I have encouraged my family to try it with me starting the day after Mother's Day! DH is finally onboard and ready to commit. DS is willing to give it a go, but a little scared, especially the thought of having to commit to 30 days (he did a 7 day sugar/gluten cleanse when I started my W30 in Jan). My main reason for pursuing this with my family is to alleviate some symptoms I've noticed in my son's health (low energy, weight gain, moodiness, mild gluten allergy, dairy intolerance, not hungry in the a.m., adult-sized appetite). Aside from the usual advice about reading the Whole9 literature about Kids doing the program, I would love some general tips and tricks from those of you that have had success with Kids' Whole30 or are in the process right now. Is there a mantra that helped you guide your kids through the program? A kid-friendly recipe website you couldn't live without? Did you modify the program at all for your kids? How did you explain the program to your kids to motivate and educate them? How did you manage slip ups? Any other words of wisdom to help with a 9 year old? Any advice you can offer is greatly appreciated!!
Puckertoe posted a topic in Join the Whole30We have had building going on five months and it's the most stressy event to cope with. Builders need biscuits and tea and constant attention. I have put on a stone in that time. So starting today I begin a Whole 30. I did two in 2016 and have managed to do well with food until this summer. Now I need to get a grip girl. Looking forward to some disciplined food choices.
I am on day 16 of my first Whole 30. I've tried to follow the recommended program very carefully but instead of feeling less bloated or like I'm losing weight, I feel the opposite. I should preface this by saying I used to eat a pretty healthy diet and I do exercise (cardio or Pilates) 5-6 days a week. I started Whole 30 to help me be more intentional about snacking and the types of food that I eat, and to try to reduce my craving for sugar. I feel like I'm eating much more than I used to for each meal and I don't feel that hungry between meals. I do often need some type of snack in the afternoon but stick to Whole 30 compliant items. I feel like I'm eating better meals than I used to, and fewer snacks, but I'm feeling heavier. Is it possible that this is just something my body is going through to adjust? Prior to do Whole 30, I ate very little red meat--I ate chicken and turkey, but also ate a lot of beans, lentils and other whole grains. Again, it seemed like a healthy diet if I just snacked less--but the difference this time is that I don't feel the same need for snacks. Typically I eat eggs and veggies for breakfast, a turkey/lettuce wrap for lunch (or something similar), veggies, and then some type of meat and veggie meal for dinner. I use sweet potatoes and more of the carbs around dinner. I love cauliflower but notice that makes me feel particularly bloated. I've also been eating nuts and coconut chips as snacks and fear I'm eating more than I should. Any suggestions from this long post? Is it possible that my body really isn't used to consuming the meat and fats that I'm now eating and just needs more time to adjust? Please advise. I enjoy this way of eating but if I'm gaining weight, I don't want to stray to far from what was previously working to at least help me maintain my weight. Thank you! Jessica
