Today is the first day of the whole 30 for myself and my spouse. Is there an easy way to navigate through the forum? I’m having a hard time and getting frustrated. I have never used forums. If you have any helpful suggestions I’d appreciate them. Hopefully I’ll figure out how to open and read them. Thank you all, Otilia

If you're looking for specific things or answers to questions about if something is compatible or not, using google as a search engine is better than our integrated search tool.  Just type 'whole30 forum' and the item you're looking for into google - like 'whole30 forum can I have pasta' (nope).

Basic forum structure is umbrella categories such as 'Can I have', 'Troubleshooting', Recipes' and then inside each of those categories are individual threads that people have started and responded in about that particular item. So for instance, if the above google search didn't turn anything up (it will), you could go under the Can I Have umbrella and start a topic called 'Can I have Pasta' and then type a little bit of a post 'wondering if I can have pasta made from almond flour' (no) and then hit post and when someone responds back, you'll get a notification in the top right of your screen indicating a response.

Hope that helps

I’m sorry but I have a hard time navigating your website. I searched on a particular topic and it opened up an option of an article. But when I clicked on that article it just opened up to something else that went onto a bunch of other different articles. I don’t know how to find specific information I guess. Anyway that’s why I’m reaching out to the forum because maybe some other members have had experience with this. I’ve been on the whole 30 for three weeks now. I am still feeling really awful. I’ve had a lot of detox type feelings. I am 68 years old with an autoimmune condition and various other issues. So I wasn’t expecting this to be a walk in the park for me. I also have a systemic candida issues.  I was concerned about eating as much fruit as I’m eating but I thought I would do it anyway and see what happened because I believed that would be healthy for me especially my gut. But I’m wondering if maybe I do need to drop the fruit. Have any other of you members experienced anything around this?

Hey there!

First, the easiest way to navigate the forum is to use Google.  And if you format your search like as follows, that should pull up forum topics. ''whole30 forum ABC'

Second, with regard to fruit, you don't mention how much fruit you're eating but you don't have to eat any - many of our participants find that fruit either keeps their sugar cravings alive or doesn't serve them digestively. Personally, I eat almost no fruit. 

Still feeling detox-y at three weeks is a bit of a lengthy time altho not unheard of depending on the context, but if you want to give us a breakdown of a few days worth of what you've been eating including quantities, we can see if there's something that stands out that you could adjust.
