Hi Team,

Welcome, LIVIN!! emoticon Sounds like you are on your way to a successful Whole30. Just don't stop!

DEE - Good luck in New York on Sunday. I am afraid to look at your weather, as I know what we have coming for us in the Boston area. UGH!!

WW/DEE - that would be cool if you were able to meet up! Have you met before? I actually have a true and dear friend in my area, and I met her here! Spark meet-ups are always fun. I've had the pleasure of meeting one other Sparkfriend as well.

RYDER - Good luck with eliminating the processed foods and getting back to your old self now that moving prep is winding down!

Keep up the great work, Loretta and Berta! You gals can DO IT!!

I am still processed-foods, grain, and sugar-free! My weight loss in down to .5 or 1 lb per week but all my old clothes are fitting again, YEAY! Having the skim milk in my coffee and a couple of nonfat, plain greek yogurts a week had not reintroduced any issues.

Still very happy to report that eliminating (I suspect) sugar is still keeping night sweats out of my life! Yes!!

Enjoy the weekend!!

Livin, I've always gotten up at night, but I did note an increase at first.

As for the fat, I drain a little but I don't make a big deal out of it.

Livin, it really has helped my joint aches. Not totally eliminated, but did get rid of the ones that seemed not to have a cause (like arthritis).

WW, let's definitely plan to meet. It's not that large a race, after all, is it? As it gets closer we'll make plans. I will be running with a couple of friends running their first marathon, so will go at their pace, whatever it turns out to be. As for NY, my goal is to finish. It's been a rough year.
Life does get in the way.

Hi everyone, I've resurfaced. Life has been hectic and my eating took a big hit. I am so ready to get back on the wagon. If anyone is interested, I am going to try to put up a short synopsis blog tonight. My half marathon earlier this month went well, but training for my full marathon the end of next month has taken a hit. I'm hoping I can still pull it off.

Dee - Looking forward to meeting you at Space Coast if at all possible - Good luck in New York; I'll be anxious to hear about it.

Livin.... Do your best to stick with this for the full 30 days. It is an amazing experience for a variety of reasons. My goal was also to reduce joint pain. I honestly can't say W30 was the answer, but I will say now months after my stringent 30 days, I do not experience anywhere near the level of pain I had been, but for me there are several other factors that are probably at play. Nor did I have any epic changes in anything really, but overall I felt/feel sooooo much better when following the major guidelines. I do allow myself several "clean foods" that are not strict W30, but I don't find them to cause issues for me either.

I've been eating like crap for the last month, while we prepped our house to put on the market. My body is screaming at me to start a new W30. Not sure, if I'm starting tomorrow or if I'm going to start slowly by eliminating processed foods first.

It's Day 17 for me on Whole30. So far, I haven't noticed much change. My meals are closer together and I'm doing fine that way. Since I get up at 5am, I eat some nuts between breakfast and lunch. On the days I volunteer at the food bank, I can't go until 1pm to eat lunch. It works better and I don't have 'brain fog'.

Yes, I'm getting excited and nervous.

I've been about 85% compliant. I've allowed some wine back in, and sometimes some chocolate. I think after the marathon I'll do another Whole30, though.

I did go to a cheese making class yesterday, and we ate our work product. It was goat cheese, and doesn't seem to cause me any problems in terms of pain or gas. But I haven't weighed myself, and it might show up there.

Dee, you must be getting really excited about New York coming up! I hope you have a strong race!!

Wonderwoman, I hope your road race was a great experience for you.

Way to go, all the new Whole30 folks. Everyone sounds really positive and focused. Awesome!! My sister started a few weeks ago and she just wasn't ready for it; "angry and resentful". I told her you really have to embrace it - just LIVE it and by the end you'll know what's happening!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
I'm on Day #50. I am still grain-free and sugar-free but do have a little milk in my coffee and ~2 single containers (5.3 oz) non-fat, greek yogurts per week, since my Whole30 completed. I haven't noticed any bad effects and am still losing inches and weight so I think I'll let them stay.

Has anyone read "Grain Brain"? I'm reading it right now and am pretty intrigued about the correlation between gluten and brain dysfunction, Dementia and Alzheimer's in later years. The sources cited are decent.

Have a great day!! Stay Strong!! emoticon

Actually, it's day 6 for me, don't know what I was thinking. I did the same thing today, only it was an hour longer. I have to quit that. Even when I carry nuts in my purse, I'm not eating them.

I'm a day 5 and things are going well. I get too hungry before lunch, so I'm taking nuts to the food bank when I volunteer there. Yesterday, I ate breakfast at 6:45 and lunch at 1:00, so just too long between meals.

Everyone have a great day.

Thanks Melly. I do feel pretty good about it all.

I'm running a half marathon this Saturday. Wish me luck. I had a minor injury to my calf a couple weeks ago. Gonna take it slow and easy.

WONDERWOMAN!!

Total HIGH-FIVE!! Nothing like wonderful lab results to reinforce the benefits of clean eating. (I've had a few of those disappearing posts over the years, such a bummer!) Do you have any races coming up?

After a life of poor choices and next to no vegetables other than an iceberg salad, I cleaned up my act and my diet in 2011, whole foods only and major vegetable introduction. I lost 55 lbs and kept it off for almost 2 years. Why did I stop? No matter, the Whole30 has brought me back.

I emoticon Whole30!!

Hi all!

Gosh, there are days I hate my computer. I just had a LONG post almost done and somehow lost it all. So you all are lucky in that I don't have it in me to recreate the whole thing, therefore, you will get the abbreviated version. emoticon

Since doing my W30 in June, I continue to stick to approximately a 75/25 version and continue to feel the benefits of clean eating. Like Dee, I supplement a bit more to accommodate my distance running. The big news is that I had my annual physical last week and while my "numbers" have never been bad, age and menopause have played a part in them creeping up each year. Well, this year is the first year in over five that they have all improved - and most of them dramatically.

Whole 30 on ladies! The benefits are endless.

Hi All,

Congrats MARTH, on your Whole20 and best of luck getting the house ready for sale! I imagine that would be quite the feat to keep the kids' schooling going while preparing the house.

Awesome news on the fat-adaptation, DEE. That's terrific. I am not a runner so I haven't needed that kind of energy reserve to tap into but it must be a fantastic feeling on the road! "It Starts With Food" said that the body should be ready to flip to fat-adapting mode by end of week three with compliancy; it takes that long for our hormones to try and settle into the new norm after truly leaving sugar behind.

HM, MARTH - sorry to hear about the energy slumps! I was worried about that too but for some reason have been pleasantly surprised that I DO have energy, but even better than that, I am not hungry between meals anymore.
While I was still trying to catch up with the wagon I fell off, I was exhausted and needed coffee to keep going. I think I was on a sugar rollercoaster like crazy. Way UP to crash WAY down. For me, I think the healthy fats are 'sticking to my ribs'. I was a low-fat person. With Whole30, I have been really careful to incorporate quality fats, not junk fats, and they hold me by.

Today is Day 30 for me! It's also my 19th wedding anniversary. emoticon
Feeling PUMPED!!

Make it a great day, gang!

I had days with no energy also. I read the info that said I would have tons of energy. I did not. However, I made myself get up and go to the pool and do water aerobics and swim lengths. I had energy when I was swimming and I felt so much better afterwards.

Well, it turned into a Whole20, but close enough. I'm not technically doing it anymore, but I am pretty much sticking to most of the plan. Navymom: glad the night sweats are gone...hate those. I've had hot flashes, but they stopped last year. Very hard to sleep like that.

It sounds like my life is getting to be like yours soon Ryderb. We, too, will be selling our house. I think that is why I am getting stressed out. We are in a weird situation right now. A lot of the responsibility of getting the house ready is on me. And I homeschool my kids. I don't feel like I have time to clean the house, much less get it ready to sell. I probably would feel like doing those things if I didn't feel so tired all the time.

Do know that through this process, I have gained .5 pound. That is sad. But, I am learning how to eat well. I am also really curious if anyone knows how long it takes for the body to learn how to burn fat instead of sugar. I feel like my body still wants sugar and it's confused with how to burn the fat. That's probably not true, but I can get these hyper rushes where I can conquer and complete lots of tasks, but now since cutting starches, sugar, etc, I feel like a slug. And I am getting enough food (veggies, proteins and fats) on most days.

Also, I am reading The Calorie Myth which is kind of interesting.

Have a wonderful week!

Life is crazy right now & stressful. My body still hates me for making terrible food choices. We're so busy getting our house ready to put on the market that I haven't had time to cook, like I want to. Even my husband has complained that he's so tired and has no energy since we've been eating out more. Tomorrow's plan is a quick green smoothie breakfast, and to throw a pot of chocolate chili together and let it simmer in the slow cooker until a late lunch early dinner. Since I'll be painting all day.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Now and again I'm allowing a glass of wine.
Yesterday's 5% 'miss' was a piece of chocolate.

Otherwise, compliant.

Now that you mention it, I do have some reduction of night sweats. Not total gone, but less bothersome.

emoticon all,

MARTHROID - Keep going! You're doing a great job. I am on Day 19 today and have had some tiredness on a few days but am really surprised at how good I've been feeling. And NO hunger! I think that's the increase in healthy fats. Sorry to hear about headache and the migraine at that.

IFDEEVARUNS2 - 95% complaint is pretty darned compliant. May I ask what you're letting in?

HM - I hope your inflammation is subsiding a bit.
Same for RYDER - Have you recovered from your food outing?

I have been able to point to one thing so far that's changed based on adopting the Whole30 plan. I suspect it's eliminating the sugar and junk~sweets~cookies~candy that had become a nightly grind.

No More Night Sweats!! emoticon
I had a total hysterectomy in 2004 which sent me into surgical menopause. Those symptoms had finally subsided over the years but I'd started a serious return. UGH! It must have been the sugar I was pushing every evening.

At this point, as I get closer to 30 days, I'm deciding what will be changing post-Whole30 (unless I decided to do one more first).
- Non-whole foods won't be making a comeback. No sugar, unhealthy fats, or processed foods will be reintroduced. I've met them.
They aren't friendly! emoticon
- Since I only had skim in my coffee and greek non-fat, plain yogurt for Dairy, I do plan to reintroduce them.
- I plan to reintroduce steel-cut oats, rolled oats and quinoa for grains. I do NOT plan to reintroduce bread. Danger food for me, in the form of dinner rolls in the cafe at the salad bar at work, and when we got out to eat. I'm not a sandwich person anymore so that shouldn't be a big deal. Also, we enjoyed brown rice at dinner occasionally so that may come back into rotation. It is not a food that I'm likely to overeat.

Have any of the veteran Whole30 folks done a back-to-back plan?

What will YOU reintroduce, if anything?

I didn't have anything like what they described as tiger blood, but I did feel an elevated sense of happiness. That was good enough!

AFM, having a hard time doing a 100% Whole30 at the moment. I'm at about 95% though, so I'm going to keep on going.

I'm not going to do anything crazy to "detox". Eating W30 clean is a natural way to detox from the chemicals in restaurant foods, and I'll be drinking more water. Hopefully it will help me feel better soon.

Hi RYDER - do you mind me asking what you do to detox? I have serious inflammation also and would give most anything a try.

I always give myself a big reward at the end. Something I really want. This time it was a Cut & Color. Last time it was hot stone massage. My post W30 food testing didn't go well. My body has seriously relapsed and muscle stiffness and joint swelling is back. emoticon So, today is day one of trying to detox my body again. I can't commit to day one of a new W30 because my oven broke this weekend emoticon I know it's 9 years old, but I feel like it's nearly brand new since prior to discovering W30, the only thing I used it for was baking cookies, pies, and cakes. emoticon
So, until it's fixed, I'm going to be doing my best to make meals using my range, slow cooker, and griddler, but depending on how long the part takes to come in, there might be restaurant meals in my future.

emoticon all,

Proud to say I am starting my third week of my first Whole30 tomorrow. I am feeling a big difference. Wearing a pair of pants that were too tight for the first time tomorrow!!

While I've been 100% compliant with food, I am not being compliant with waiting 30 days to weigh in. I am keeping a running update on my page. I am only looking and recording on a weekly basis so I can't wait for tomorrow.

My goal this week is to find Whole30 recipes and try at least one! emoticon
I also plan to be more consistent with exercise.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend!!

My pleasure, MRTHING2000. I was introduced to it by my DD, who also introduced me to Korean soap operas. Both have turned into addictions. emoticon

@IFDEEVARUNS2: I absolutely have grown to love kombucha. This is great stuff. I've tried 4 different kinds and have made it a daily treat. $3 a bottle sort of mutes the fun a bit, but the SCOBY is working wonders. Thanks for the tip!

IFDEEVARUNS2, I can't find any bacon or sausage at my store. We are not close to any specialty stores. Sad...but I'm definitely getting eggs (with salsa).

I rewarded myself with kombucha a couple of times a week - it's costly, but I'm worth it.

Eating sausage or bacon for breakfast feels like a reward. emoticon

Navymom, I'm glad you figured out it was sodium. I have low sodium, even though I eat salt. Doctor thought I had heart problems and put me through a year of tests until we figured out that I need a lot of it. I have to keep salt in my car in case I start to have palpitations and feel like I might pass out. It's ridiculous. I realize your problems weren't that extreme. But I grew up hearing, "Low salt" eating, but every BODY is different.

Day 8 and holding. Slept terribly again last night. I"ve been cranky today, but not wanting to nap at all. Don't know what's going on.

Take care. Does anyone here do rewards for themselves? If so, what do you do?

Hi "mom" - My pizza symptoms were more of stomach bloating, cramping, "bathroom issues." In small amounts, I can eat pizza (like one slice), but this was overkill. I'm starting to think I may have a dairy sensitivity if I ingest large amounts. However, to be fair I must also acknowledge that pizza seems to be the one food I've had that really, really causes intestinal issues since I had a portion of my colon removed in January.

Hi All -

Starting on Day 9 of my first Whole30! Food is tracked for the day.

I've had a couple days where I've felt hungrier than others. Since it is early in the game, I wasn't trusting my signals to be true cues yet and made sure I drank a lot of water but also had plenty of vegetables at the meals. Keeping up with the healthy fats also helps me with hunger. I'm definitely psyched when it's meal time!

I seem to have made it past the horrible leg cramps. The amount of natural sodium (I track sodium in my tracer) I was getting out of my food naturally was really low, under 500, so I started using a sea salt and black pepper mill at dinner. Two grinds into my salad. That seems to have done the trick to counteract all the water.

I'm sorry about the pizza being rough on your system.Not to be asking "TI", but were your symptoms more stomach/bloating-pain, or a fuzzy, yucky feeling, or? Did it take a while or did you know right after eating it? I'm curious about reintroducing things and how they affect people.

Have a great day, whichever day you are on!! emoticon

Tried to update yesterday and had problems with my computer. Day 7 done. Yay! I ate a lot yesterday, just hungry, but stayed on the program. Today, I felt hazy and a little light-headed (I was on the go a lot and didn't eat as much as I should have, but did try and drink a lot of water) and it was the first day I felt that way. Bummer.
Have a good Tuesday tomorrow.

I'm having more cravings during this second Whole30.
Yesterday it was craving for fruit. I indulged a little, but it was tough to stop.

Good Morning Everyone!! It's been a couple of weeks since I checked in and I am so happy to see some new people!! I am still following a mostly Whole 30 diet, but sugar has crept it's way back into my life, so that stops TODAY! It just makes me feel so yuck emoticon

I am still feeling better then I was pre whole30, so that's something!

Have a great day!
