Thank You M&D for Starting Whole9 Forum


Recommended Posts


I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks for starting this forum. The forum did not begin until after my first Whole30.

Background: I did my first Whole30 in February and I only had one friend that ate Paleo. I did get help from her but it was still a bit challenging figuring everything out. I strayed following my somewhat successful Whole30 (still got on scale and logged food some days) and got unkind feedback from this person as I worked through some emotional eating/binging issues and my initial resistance to completely adopt living Paleo post Whole30#1. It was such a radical shift and I stressed about how much of Paleo to adopt long-term.

I began Whole30 #2 on July 31st after a summer of learning to not stress about calories, portions, or the scale. My body image improved too. I just exercised and tried to eat fairly well but too many adult beverages and grains worked their way back in to my days this summer. For this Whole30 I joined the forum for support and it has already been helpful. I have discovered new foods to pick up at Whole Foods and they are great additions to the mix of foods I ate during Whole30 #1. I am also learning other tips for doing a Whole30 in an non-Paleo household and I feel great knowing I have a place to have my questions answered. Today on Day 7 I feel relaxed and satisfied. One big difference for this Whole30 is the way I relate to friends and family. What I choose or choose not to eat just is. It's not a big discussion topic or debate. I just eat the Whole30 foods and go about my business. I can look ahead for the first time and see much of this becoming part a my long-term lifestyle. :)

I am very stubborn and need much convincing to make changes sometimes, but so far this Whole30 I can really notice that I feel better. I have little hunger or cravings. I am feeling great at the gym. And I really do feel satisfied with my food. And I am not even tempted this time to step on the scale at my gym. In fact my old scale won't be coming back in my home post Whole30 either. :)

And the moderators on this forum are awesome and quick to respond with well thought out responses. All of them. Thanks again!
