Starting Whole30 on February 15 for R1


Recommended Posts

Good morning

I'm going to start my first Whole30 on February 15.  I’ve decided to make this into part of my Lent.  I like to give something up but also add something to my life during Lent so Whole30 will cover both bases.  My doctor suggested that I use Whole30.  I have Diabetes (type 2) and do take oral medications but not insulin.  I do morning workouts on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays so have been wrapping my head around the Pre & Post workout meals.  Since I have ibs, I have difficulty digesting raw veggies...especially lettuce so I’m a little worried about incorporating all the veggies into my Whole30.

I’ve been lurking through the forums and on Facebook and do have a question about what books people feel are the “must haves” to succeed with Whole30?

steam sauted greens and then reheating with some coconut oil and other veg before adding in eggs is one of my favorite breakfasts.  otherwise I'll toss in whatever veggies I have left from the previous night's dinner.

I started with "It Starts with Food". It explains the reasons as well as the program. Then I borrowed "The Whole 30" from the library. It has lots of FAQs and tips and some nice recipes. 

Also, I found the forums to be most encouraging, (and not necessarily with those starting on the same date as I). Just started in a thread I liked and kept going following a group which helped me stay the course by hearing people share their experiences. Plus Moderators will often chime in and answer questions or offer encouragement. I also signed up for the $15 Daily emails. At the end of each day  you check off that you completed another day and a cute or goofy message pops up. I personally loved that! I'd smile every time.

All you really need though,  is on the Whole 30 website:


Lots of lists and instructions are on the site. I printed some out and  pinned them up in the kitchen. Especially the one showing the portions - easy to follow but I sometimes need reminding. Here are all the print outs.


That's more info than you asked for but hope it helps. All the best.
