Hey there! My name is Maura Beaver and I am starting on Monday, July 9th! This will be my first round of Whole30, and this type of program is so new to me. Recently, I have gained a decent bit of weight and I have been having some major allergy issues. I wake up with puffy eyes and lips and I'm breaking out in hives and eczema. We have tried patch testing at the allergist and concluded I'm at least allergic to nickel and gold. I feel like that's not the only issue because I haven't seen much of a change for the better. Now I'm considering the idea it might be food related. Also, let it be known I'm getting married at the end of October and would really like to get this taken care of! If you have any thoughts relating to the allergy topic or just some words of advice about the program, I would love to hear them. I LOVE to cook, so I don't think that will be hard to get used to. I do love cheese and bread - that will be hard to get used to... Thanks in advance, and I hope the program is going well for all of you! Maura
Hello! I am on Day 22! Feeling good, nothing dramatic, but also aren't seeing too many results. My clothes were fitting better after the first week but right now they are feeling tight again?? I have a very busy schedule. I am a fitness instructor and work full time. I am wanting to know when I should be eating at the proper times to fuel my body and prevent eating every couple of hours. I will usually be up at the fitness studio 2 times a day, either to teach class or take class. Here is a very typical day: 5:45AM- I either teach a class or take a class (the workout is either strength training or cardio, it varies) 7:00AM- home from workout (teaching or taking), have a cup of coffee with Vital Protein and an egg cup with veggies and sausage 10:30AM- around this time I will have another cup of coffee and an RX bar 2:00PM- have lunch which is usually a salad with chicken, tomato, avocado, carrots, hard boiled egg, and an apple and a la croix 5:30PM- take class (strength training or cardio) 6:30PM- teach class 7:45PM- get home around this time to have dinner (usually some form of chicken, roasted veggies, and avocado) with sparkling water 10:30- go to bed I try not to eat at least 2 hours before I go to bed. When I teach a class, it's not a work out but I am walking around for about an hour. Any suggestions?
Hello I am on Day 29 and although I have not weighed myself, I can tell I have not lost any weight, as none of my clothes are fitting looser, and my stomach is still carrying a lot of weight. I have been eating 'compliant' food and so when I wasn't losing weight I went online to 'troubleshooting' and it said you should count how many calories you're eating, 'it's possible you're eating too much oil'. I don't think my problem is oil; rather maybe too many starchy vegetables? So I counted my breakfast: 3 eggs (213 calories), One 10 oz sweet potatoe (243 calories) chopped with 1 tsp coconut oil, 1/4 onion, and 1 tsp olive oil (for frying eggs) - 537 calories. Is this too large a breakfast?!! Should I drop to half a sweet potatoe and incorporate other vegetables? I am 5'10 and 192 lbs and aiming to get to 'healthy' weight for me of 180 lbs. Lunch is a hearty salad with lettuce, 6 oz chicken or salmon, tomatoe, cucumber and 1/2 apple and 1/4 avocado..they drizzle olive oil and balsamic generously, so I could possibly ask for it on the side and measure if you think this could also be issue. Dinner I generally have 6 oz salmon with broccoli and sweet potatoe, or whole30 curry on cauliflower rice with chicken breast, or kale salad with 1 tbsp. tessemae dressing with burger or chicken, or meatballs with tomatoe sauce on zucchini noodles. Sometimes at dinner I have 'golden milk' made with gaya turmeric powder (has some date powder in it) and almond milk, So my only tweaks I can see are: cut down carbs for breakfast, and start measuring salad dressing. But of course I'm not sure....appreciate your advice... Thank you! ps I plan to continue Whole 45 or Whole 60 but want to make sure I actually give myself the chance to lose weight, and so want to find out now if I need to tweak anything. Megan
