Hello,

 

Let me introduce myself. I am not ... at a healthy weight.

 

I want to go through this. I want to get it right. I want to succeed!

 

I want to lower my cholesterol, my blood sugar and BMI.

 

I want to get sugar out of my life! I want to conquer my addiction!

 

I want to be lean.

 

lean lean lean.

 

Please point me in the right direction.

 

A real human, please write to me here and tell me exactly what books I need. How to plan for the first week. 

 

Thank you for any help and instruction you can spare. And please pray for me. I really need the help. And I will start 1/1/2016.

Hi, Mimi, welcome to Whole30.

 

There are two books about the Whole30. It Starts With Food tells about the science behind the program. The Whole30 is more of a how-to book, with tips on getting the most from your Whole30, recipes, and other basic information. Both are worth reading, it just depends on what you personally want from a book right now.

 

You don't actually need either book to do a Whole30 successfully -- all the information you need can be found here on the website for free. Start here, and read as much as you can before you get started. There are also some helpful links in my signature below. If you have specific questions, you can try googling whole30 + whatever you have questions about, or come back here and ask.

 

For ongoing support now and once you've started your Whole30, you may want to join in a group thread. There are several for people starting 1/1, and I'm sure more will be started in the next week. Look in the Join The Whole30 section of the forum, and just find a discussion with that starting date, read through what's there, and if it seems like a group you want to join, post a note to say hi. Groups can be great, since you'll all be going through a lot of the same stuff at the same time and can help encourage each other and keep each other on track.

 

You can also start a personal log in the Your Whole30 Log section -- this can help you keep yourself accountable, if you feel you need that. It can also be helpful because if you find you're not feeling so great, or if you're just wondering if you're on the right track, meal-wise, you'll have a record that people can look at and help you see what you're doing right and where you could make improvements.

You should also start checking out all the lists on the downloads page: http://whole30.com/pdf-downloads/

 

You will need to start shopping for pantry items you might not have on hand, like coconut milk, coconut oil, ghee (or you can make your own), almond flour, etc.  If you haven't yet, now's the time to start learning how to make your own mayo and ranch dressing. Start trying new recipes, too.

 

I compiled a bunch of my favorite recipes here, at the bottom of the thread:  Check out my long list at the bottom of this thread; hopefully the link will work:
