  1. Hi, I have been on the Whole30 for 16 days. I know we are not supposed to wight ourselves, but I did. Weight-loss was not my #1 goal...but certainly a hope. I've gained 70lbs over the last 5 years. I would really like to work my way back down. I have stayed the same weight. I stated this past week going on a hike 3 days a week and yoga 4 days a week. What I am wondering is if I'm still not following the meal template accurately. This is what my usual meals look like: Breakfast: 1 coffee with a splash of coconut milk 3 scrambled eggs with a splash of coconut milk (cooked in Ghee) half a fresh red pepper half avocado half tomato a few small slices of cured salmon This breakfast keeps me full generally until lunch. I eat between 730-8am. I do feel hungry for lunch around 1130 (always do), but I am trying to hold out and if I'm busy it holds me over until 1230/1pm. I think the hunger is a boredom thing. Lunch: Dinner left overs or salad if I forget lunch at home. Dinner: protein- shrimp, calamari, or chicken/turkey (I am working towards pescatarian) Usually 1 palm but sometimes two half a fresh red pepper half avocado half tomato Sweet potato or regular potato- Usually fried in a pan out cut up in small wedges and baked with olive oil. I'm thinking maybe a little too much of this? Also between a palm or two per sitting. I cook everything in Ghee, and I use a bunch. I'm wondering if this and the potato might not actually be follow the template. I will also throw a plantain in here and there. I've been trying not to snack, and have been avoiding fruits. Like I said I cook with a lot of ghee. Maybe I am taking it too far? Thank you!
  2. D1R2 Hello my name is Elissa ! I completed my first whole 30 in January of 2016 and I had never felt or looked better. I stayed fairly on track most of 2016. After some life changes and challenges in 2017 my eating habits went downhill. I currently battling anxiety and depression and have never weighed more than I do today. I am bloated, uncomfortable and my face and body feels all over swollen. I cannot remember the last time I slept through the night without waking up. I have decided to commit to at least 30 days of the whole 30 program because I want to feel good again. My appearance and how I feel as resulted in a loss of confidence and I am striving to regain that confidence. I am hopeful that by posting in the forum I will gain support from other whole 30 participants and I will stay motived and committed to the program. If any of you are willing or would like to help me stay focused on the journey I would really appreciate it. During my first whole 30 I belonged to a facebook group. We posted daily and it really helped me stay on track and be accountable for my action.

    Starting 1st ever W30 Oct 29th

    Hi everyone! I've got the book, pre-started weaning off sugar/grains/off plan stuff. I'm meal and grocery planning. And my start date is Oct 29!
  4. Hello everyone! Looking for other women/men who have undergone thyroid cancer or have had it removed due to cancer or disease. Or someone with thyroid issues. I’m hypothyroid. Struggling with insomnia , fatigue, hair loss, weight gain, hair loss dry skin , calicium deficient and iron Deficient both big deals! since thyroid was removed and no gallbladder all the other yucky terrible thyroid issues. Like hormone inblances Ever since thyroid cancer and removal my heath went down hill 50/60lbs weight gain and battling hypo...and hair losss is terrible ! BUT I’m on day 15! Yay me and I have a second chance on life and I’m determined to live heathly and less plump! I have not cheated or swypo the first week I had bacon with sugar in the ingredients but not in the listing ! and the second week I took a big drink of coconut water a friend offered without looking at the ingredients. Other then those things I have been 100% compliant! Here goes my concern/question?! And yes I read the books and I’m all over whole30 social media. First- My NSVS have been no acid reflux, no feeling full for hours and hours on end after a meal. No belching and feeling big air pockets in my gut. Feeling like I wake up not so foggy. it used to take me more then half the day to “wake up” Now it’s by noon or sooner Sugar craving is diminishing. Now for the whoas me- I don’t have the tiger blood. I’m still fatigued, still not sleeping please someone help me fall asleep !!! Not much energy more then I had but not a enough to be substantial and I have not lost much of any weight ! (I got on the scale most of you did too! No judging and yes it is important just as much as the rest of the the Stuff is!) I’m only down 4lbs just looking for support and advise to put this into high gear! I want to achieve long term heath and goals along with motivational steppingstones along the way ! Is there something I’m doing wrong ? Or something I can improve ? Something to cut out and replace with a better option ? Needing whole30 support . Thanks in advance and why am I still craving cheese and bread! Lord help me ! I can be around chocolate cake, but don’t torture me with the dairy and grains!
  5. I am on day 18 of my first whole30, and I have the overwhelming feeling that I am making no progress in terms of weightloss. Obviously I want to get the myriad of benefits from the program, but one of my biggest motivators and something I was looking forward to was the weight loss I assumed would happen. I have been eating a lot of fruit (at almost every meal and for snacks) and nuts throughout the day. I am scared that all of this fruit sugar is inhibiting my weight loss. Also for reference, before starting the program I consumed a fairly healthy diet with nutrient rich veggies and lean meats already, but with more treats, added sugar, and dairy. I do feel that I have cut out a lot of the bad things from my diet, so it is frustrating that I am not seeing results. I also think it might just take longer for my body to adjust and the weight loss might be delayed and happen at the end... when does most of the weight loss happen for women??
  6. Hi! first time doing Whole30 and honestly i have seen great things so far in terms of allergies and almost completely elimating painful sinus headaches. I feel like I’m in the groove and making better food decisions but still ... i cheated and got on the scale and immediate depression. No weight loss. Is this normal? I’m also not really working out at the moment. Stomach seems flatter but honestly kinda bummed. 31YO. Thanks!!!

    Significant Weightloss on Whole30??

    I'm wondering if anyone is attempting to lose a significant amount of weight during the whole30 process, or anyone who has. Obviously "significant" is relative, but has anyone lost more than 10lbs over the course of the Whole30? If so, did you eat less fruit and nuts and more protein/veggie combos? I feel more Atkins like when I omit the fruit and nuts, but it's not sustainable for me long-term, but it does help induce significant weightloss....just curious

    Round 3 completed! I need new pants! LOL

    And I just bought new ones before I went on my trip! Good problems but my wallet doesn't agree. I’ve lost a minimum of 55lbs since July 2017. I started my 3rd round of Whole30 on January 1, 2018 and during this trying time work popped up that required me to travel. Before I started my 3rd round, I want to throw in a disclaimer. During my time off from the strict 30 days I still followed the lifestyle of the program. No dairy, no gluten (allergy), no processed foods, and no sugar (only fruit). On my 3rd round of Whole30 I could feel those little aches and pains some of us have become accustomed to go away. My nose wasn’t running, headaches weren’t daily and my back wasn’t killing me like normal. I did face some challenges this round though. Because I was traveling for 3.5 weeks and living out of a hotel I didn’t have a kitchen until the beginning of week 3. Now everyone knows you don’t eat out on the Whole30. Having no kitchen I faced the challenge head on and researched local restaurants/cafes. I found coffee shops that offered boiled eggs, I tired to stock up on local cold-cut meats, fruits, and veggies. Everything I consumed I researched and if it wasn’t Whole30 compliant I didn’t even entertain the idea of consuming it. Restaurants were a challenge but having a local sibling who also has food allergies helped me pick out paleo friendly restaurants in the city I was located in. I’m not going to lie. The stress of work and not having a kitchen did cause me to skip a few lunches here and there. The moment week 3 hit and I saw my friend’s kitchen I had that ‘heavenly’ moment where I knew I could cook my frittata in piece!I lost a total of 10lbs on my 3rd round and have kept it off since. I’m going to start my 4th round when I get back from my 2 week vacation. I am currently at 180lbs. I haven’t been at this weight in almost 2 years. I don’t have an ultimate goal. Growing up and always obsessing over the number has caused me to self-sabotage. Other than feeling good and look good I have no ultimate number in mind. My birthday is July 2nd and I'm excited to see if I can lose another couple pant sizes by then. It would be the best birthday gift to myself. <3I also wanted to throw in my dad’s progress. He has lost over 80lbs doing the Whole30 program; he's been living Whole30 for over a year now. He looks, feels, and is doing wonderful. He wants to lose another 10lbs and then maintain. I’m so happy he introduced me to this lifestyle and I have a true understanding of nutrition and consumption like never before. Different strokes for different folks!
  9. Hello all, My partner (age 49) and I have just completed our second non consecutive Whole30 and my partner is disappointed that he has not lost any weight. He has lots of very positive non-scale victories but alas he was hoping to see a reduction in belly fat. He is normally very east to gain weight and very hard to loose so this sort of makes sense for him. We are carrying on and doing a Whole60 and just wondering what we could do to tweak things so we may see more changes? He lost 1-2 cm off his chest and belly so that is a good sign. I am thinking it is possible he is having too many carbs as sweet potato/potato as well as he has a smoothie midway through the afternoon and it has very little protein and a lot of fat. Unless he eats a huge lunch with tons of protein he is really hungry around 4-5pm. He doesn't drink coffee and has recovered from high cortisol although it has not been tested in a while. His sleep is very good and he has a low stress lifestyle. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas? Thanks
