Probably should have censored myself before I posted---another lesson learned...don't come to the forum on an empty stomach.

If you can't ask questions/whine here then where can you do it? :D I did the January Whole30 and for the first 2 weeks everything was really crazy. Large oscillations from feeling great to feeling crummy, diarrhea to constipation, energy to exhausted. My body didn't really level out until close to the end so give it time. Also remember that this really isn't a weight loss program. I know you hear that all the time yet everyone talks about losing weight so why the heck wouldn't you expect to also??? But seriously, you can eat enough calories on Whole30 to keep your weight where it is so there is no guarantee to lose weight and the emphasis really is on eliminating the foods that don't work well with your system. That being said, I did find that I lost weight when I filled my plate with non-starchy veggies for breakfast and lunch and only used starchy food (like sweet potato or plantains) for dinner after my workout. I ate enough veggies for each meal that I was full but focused on things like broocoli, carrots, mushrooms, bok choy etc for breakfast and lunch.

My husband and I are R1D18 right now, and I just posted something similar in a Facebook group. A lot of people have been very encouraging, and from what I've heard from them is that some if not a lot of them didn't see many results or even NSV's until almost the last week or after they finished. I know that have been "successful" in not caving into my cravings which has always been very difficult, so I guess that is currently all I've got. I wish you the best of luck!
