  • I usually only put 1 tsp. of each in. If you're IFing or just having the coffee instead of breakfast, than you could do 1 tbsp. of each, though. I love breakfast, however, so I keep it to 1 tsp. of each. Works for me!

    • Day 6 (I want my chocolate!):

      Breakfast: Coffee with coconut oil and ghee, an apple with 2 T. almond butter, bone broth.

      Lunch: Salad with lettuce, grape tomatoes, 1/2 avocado, and lots of grass-fed ground beef.

      Dinner: Braised short-rib with plantain fries, bowl of bone broth.

      • Day 6: Breakfast, leftover partial asparagus omelette (yesterdays was too big), half a leftover beef sausage, coffee with CM. Lunch was a leftover beef sausage, sliced into coins and dipped in chipotle mayo - yummy! Grape tomatos and two fresh apricots. After work: a natural pepperette, 4 large strawberries. Supper was a beef burger with avocado slices, onions, and coleslaw on the side. An apricot and tea this evening.

        Hit a new low weight of 145.5 yesterday morning. Bounced back a bit to 146.5 this morning. Excellent compliance continues. Cookie tray hit the lunch table today, just as I was drinking my tea. I resisted. Whew!

        Exercise: 2 hours of puttering around my garden, spreading mulch(LHT), weeding(squats).

        • Day 6 went well
          B-2 fried eggs in bacon grease
          L-about 1 1/2 cups of watermelon
          D-8 oz steak with some carrots cooked in ghee (not sure if carrots are whole30 approved but 4 year old was asking for them and steak which he never wants so went with it)
          S-some more watermelon a couple of strawberries and some grapes.
          Thinking I went overboard with the fruit today but since I have had only 2 apples and some grapes since starting just couldn't pass it up.
          Movement was the normal housewife stuff-cleaning, bathing children, running after children, carrying children. Havent been running my ac so it has been between 85-90 degrees in the house so sweating a bunch.
          weighed this morning and have gone from 165lb to 161.8lb. Husband is coming home in 4 days and in 7 we will be taking our first ever overnight trip alone and am hoping to fit into my hot ass jeans by then, tried them on this morning and they were still to tight to be comfortable wearing for lengths of time.
          Good job everyone, I need some cooking tips from some of you because your meals sound amazing.

            I normally have a Breve as my lunch so I'll try the tsp. first but might up it. Thank you for sharing today was tough without it and I'm clarifying some butter as I type.

              • I think i'm approaching half way point ( i think i started about 2 weeks ago now) and looking forward to day 30. Never though it'd be possible but i am getting sick of meat!

                Need a good veggie receipe that is filling with allowed foods. Just to mix it up.

                  • I have been 100% so far, this is day 8 for me but the temptations are dreadful. I am on holiday this week from work and we went to some local caves yesterday with lunch out, I so much wanted the BBQ spare ribs and chips that my daughter had instead I had another salad with smoked salmon. I also missed out on the ice-cream, I feel good for being compliant but really feel like. Am missing out . Not bothered about grains because I haven't really eaten them for a couple of years, it's the chips and the cheese that's the hardest.

                    However.......

                    On a plus note my stomach is as flat as a washboard - yay!

                    Tired though, I have boundless energy during the day but come my bedtime I am tired and I sleep solid, something I haven't done for a while, but I cannot get up in the morning I feel dead! it's a good job I am not at work this week I have slept through hubby's alarms every day and have only been groggily opening my eyes at 9am! That isn't me, I'm usually up at 6 fired to go......

                    Anyway, well done everyone, you seem to be doing so well. Keep up with the motivation I am SURE it will be worth it..

                      I sometimes make a veggie stirfry with shrimp as a lighter feeling alternative. Cook veggies in coconut oil or sesame oil - onions, peppers, zucchini, shredded or very thinly sliced carrot, any kind of green veg, shredded cabbage, mung been sprouts - whatever you have - lots. Then add a bag of frozen peeled shrimp (raw is best, cooked will do), and salt, pepper, curry powder and/or curry paste, then throw in about half a can of coconut milk. Let simmer together for just a few minutes until shrimp are cooked. I eat mine in a bowl to get all the yummy sauce, but my men eat theirs over either rice or ricestick noodles.

                      • when you say that you are using coconut milk in your coffee. Are you pouring the liquid out of the can and only using the solid, or blending the liquid in and using it?

                        • Day 6

                          B - black coffee

                          Water

                          L - Out to eat! Salad of kale, mango strips, walnuts and grapes drizzled with lemon juice (holy cats, TASTY); 2 HB eggs; water

                          Black coffee

                          D- Out to eat! 1/2 roasted free-range chicken w/skin, au jus, w/sauteed mushrooms, green beans, onions; water

                          Snack - Apple

                          Snack - 3 servings of raw macadamia nuts (oops)

                          WOD - Holy cats, WALKING. Tons of walking. And based on how heavy my backpack and shopping bag got, LHT!


                          So I'm feeling somewhat righteous. I was at Book Expo America* yesterday (one of the three largest book trade shows in the world) in NYC, and I stayed as close to Whole 30 as I could! No time for breakfast; for lunch I tried this wacky pre-fabbed salad from this high-scale cafe, and wow, it was tasty! (See above.) I ordered the 2 eggs to go with it so that I'd get some protein. And then dinner. Ah, dinner. I think I blew it. Even though I ordered the free-range chicken and ate it w/the skin, I forgot to say "gluten-free," and I have a sinking suspicion there may have been some flour in there somewhere -- and who knows what was used to roast it and get the skin so crispity? There was probably butter involved, or oil. I did say "no potatoes," at least. And I couldn't remember if green beans were okay or not, but I only had a few. That being said, I didn't go hog-wild, and even though the drinks were flowing, all I had was water. Huzzah! (I did feel a little bad on the way home, wondering if I blew it, and then I said, "Feeling bad changes nothing, and heck, I did my best, so enough with feeling bad about it." And then I had macadamias. So there!)

                          So, lessons learned:

                          1. ALWAYS request a gluten-free menu when dining out.
                          2. If you forget to ask for gluten-free and have ordered something as close to Whole 30 as possible, don't sweat the small stuff.

                          * At the Javitz Center in NYC. WALKING. Walking, walking, walking!!! Tons of walking. And walking to/from the train station to the center! And, by the way, WALKING. Whew.

                            I tend to shake the can to get everything mixed, then either drizzle some or spoon some into my coffee. I don't separate the coconut water from the thicker parts.

                              First - AWESOME on the flat belly! (Mine is looking flatter, too, and my pants are definitely looser.)

                              Second - I hear you on the energy. I've had precious little. And the brain fog! My God! It's sort of ridiculous. I haven't gotten to the boundless energy during the day part, but I'm hopeful that it will be coming soon.

                                This sounds PHENOMENAL. I'm going to the store today to get the veggies for this. Hmm. I wonder how this would taste over riced cauliflower?
