  • Starting 30 day challenge on April Fools Day

    Any helpful tips from anyone who`s doing/has done it? I`m predicting red wine being my hardest to give up...and butter

    I seem to be having an allergic reaction to something so I'm having to eliminate all suspicious foods, at least for the initial week, then gradually add them back in to see what gives me issues. Eggs, soy, and dairy being the top suspects.

    How do you do it? Start with not having it in the house. Then just take it one day at a time. Plan ahead and avoid eating out.

      Thanks Diana. Hope you find your allergen soon. Unfortunately I`m in a family of 5 who are not primal so it will be in the house. That`s ok though because my determination and drive once I decide on something is pretty strong. Breaking the glass of wine a night habit will be the hardest

          Ooh I'd love to join you, Apr 1st would be ideal for me . I did a whole30 a couple of weeks ago and then have been experimenting with raw and goats dairy- big disaster lol. I need to clean up my act, especially as I want to implement some ideas I have for gut healing (GAPs) and adrenal issues, both of which include clean primal food. The toughest thing I need to give up is dark choc/ cocoa. I react so strongly to the theobromine, I know I need to take it out.

          Last time my mood and energy deteriorated and I think I need a bit more carb so I'm excited to try again with a bit more starchy veg added.

            Cool!! I`d love to know someone else was doing it as well! So are you saying I should cook sweet potatoes and things like that??

              I'm just finishing up the March Whole 30 challenge and I'm feeling really great about it! I have missed butter, but the rest fell away surprisingly easily! Just think back to all the great tricks you used when first giving up grains/sugar! As Diana said, planning ahead is paramount!

              For dinner ideas - I've had great success using recipes from here The Clothes Make The Girl: Dino-Chow/Paleo Recipe Roundup and here Everyday Paleo Your CW family may even approve!!

                I'm a goober, I didn't know you had to give up butter for Whole30. I thought it was just under healthy fat.
                Is there a link to what the rules are for Whole30?

                  Yeah, no dairy if you're actually following the program the way it is written - a lot of people add allow butter, or maybe just ghee, as a "modification" though
                  Here's the link: Whole30 | Whole9 | Paleo Nutrition, Paleo Diet Education, Paleo Nutrition Workshops, Nutrition for Health and Fitness Facilities, and the Original Whole30 Program

                    Thanks for the links!! As far as first giving up grains and sugars I didn`t need any tricks;it was super easy Now the wine will be a different story, and the cheese!

                      Not necessarily. I just noticed the lower carb seemed to have a negative effect on me, but I know some people feel better with lower carb.

                        Hi, my name is Kym. I am on day 7 of the whole 30 (34 due a small run in with some butter cooked scrambled eggs). I was NOT paleo when I started and have found it to be less difficult than I thought it would be. I think the tough love section of the program is what has helped me. Paraphrased " It's not hard, Beating cancer is hard and it's only thirty days for the most important thing, the only physical body you'll ever have."

                        I know in 30 days there will still be butter, wine and cheese. I may even savor it more or like it less. The good sleep from not eating sugar has been a god send. Feeling my emotions instead of eating processed comfort has been interesting. NOT BEING HUNGRY all the time has been a joy. I have a feeling I will be adopting a more paleo lifestyle when it is all over. But I guess I'll figure that out when I get to the end.

                        For me, this is like setting myself free from foods that have run and hurt my body. I am reclaiming my body and my life. It is so exhilarating to have even made it this far. I feel like super woman already. Now when the energy I hear everyone talk about kicks in, watch out!

                        Tips so far: Egg muffins for breakfast (make ahead for several days), raw almonds in the drawer for a snack, and lots of roasted veggies.

                          Kymma, that is an awesome report. I am having a tough time with the sugar, but other than that this is a great way to go. I have really cut back the carbs, but still there is a ways to go.
