  • Oh really? I thought it was a no go because it can be rather allergenic? That's great news otherwise, because the diet ain't all that hard provided i can keep eggs

      some find it helpful to keep out eggs, but it's not "required". and no, the diet isn't that hard at all (imo). i've pretty much kept it (with rare cheats) since an entirely no-cheat w30 in jan.

      • Soudns good, i'll see how i go for the month, i am most hopeful of tolerating nightshades better. However i had some joint pains in my fingers prior to starting which could either be a cold weather connection, or the fact i had consumed nightshades in a similiar time frame. So i'm hopeful of identifying if they really do trigger symptoms and find a safe tolerable level of consumption.

        • I'm gonna join even though it's the 4th already. I had a cheat day today with wheat-based junk and alcohol, it all tasted so bland and my gut feels awful now! Have had rhinitis for a few days too, possibly because I've been too liberal with the dairy.

          So, no alcohol or wheat, that's fairly easy. No dairy and chocolate - a bit harder. No caffeine? Perhaps impossible but I'll give it a try, replacing my morning coffees with some gota kola tea. Also, big doses of probiotic supplements.

          I am DONE with feeling rubbish!!!

          • Day 3

            Breakfast coffee with left over chicken, raspberries with shredded coconut and walnuts

            Lunch big pile of baby Italian broccoli, left over chicken, 2 big handfuls of blueberries

            Snack 2-3 little fresh apricots from the farmers market

            Dinner. Best steak ever. Pan fried in ghee with lots of onions, mushrooms, chilies and bacon. 2-3 strawberries

            Exercise. I had to pee about half a dozen times during my sons baseball tournament. The bathroom was about a block away. Also, walked my dogs 40 minutes tonight. My new dog is still learning the drill, so I had 150 total pounds of dog to deal with. Can't wait til she gets settled in.

            • Day 3

              Food/Beverage

              10:30 am
              1 can Wild Planet albacore tuna w/dill, black pepper, fresh celery and fresh onion; 1 T paleo mayo; BAS of romaine, cucumber and bell pepper; 1/2 gala apple
              Coffee (black, unsweetened)

              3 pm
              1 handful raw macadamias
              1 small handful raw hazelnuts
              1 large banana

              oolong tea

              5:30 pm
              2 Applegate Farms Super Natural Uncured Beef Hot Dogs
              1 T sauerkraut
              spicy brown mustard
              1/2 bell pepper
              leftover homemade meatballs (from Day 1) with leftover sauce and spaghetti squash

              9:15 pm
              4 strawberries
              a little coconut milk

              WOD
              Walked 3 miles in 1 hour around the neighborhood.


              I definitely didn't eat enough for brunch; by mid-afternoon, I was famished. I made sure to eat more at dinner -- I could have stopped with the hot dogs, but I still felt a bit hungry. And the strawberries/coconut milk was because darn it, I wanted something sweet. It was delicious.

              • Hi guys

                Day three:

                Actually, day three turned out to be a run-on from day two: a project I've been working on (due today) ran into some last-minute problems and I was up all night fixing them very frowned-upon primal move, I know, but it was an emergency!

                So, I can add an extra meal of 'food eaten in the middle of the night last night':

                2 eggs, 2 bananas, a kiwi - again with the way too much fruit! Fortunately that was the last of my bananas, so the problem is half solved

                Breakfast: four eggs (starving!)

                Lunch: bas - lettuce, tomato, cucumber, capsicum, mushrooms, seaweed, salmon, with drizzles of olive oil, coconut milk, and lemon juice - yum!

                Dinner - four small squid stuffed with mushroom, onion, garlic, ginger, coconut milk. Zucchini and carrots on the side.

                Other: two black coffees, no sugar or milk. One kiwi.

                Exercise: fail. But, I did walk around all day at work. Side note: I work in a bakery, and resisting all the grain and sugar filled treats for two shifts in a row is a major achievement! I'm finding this whole 30 really motivating

                I do have a question, though- probably a stupid one. I've never gone dairy free before, though, and I'm curious: where are we supposed to be getting our calcium from? Obviously 'other foods', but which? Thanks in advance!

                • Day 3:

                  Breakfast: 2.5 breakfast sausages from the farmers market, a cup of strawberries.

                  Lunch: braised oxtail, parsnip puree, a cup of cherries.

                  Dinner (at a friend's): Grilled steak and zucchini. Had to deny wine, cheese, white potatoes, and ice cream. Lots of fun.

                    • I've been eating a lot of fruit and starchy veggies (probably too much fruit), so no low carb flu for me!

                      • I have been sleeping SO much better without the dairy already! My stomach is also a bit flatter, and it's only been 3 days. Super motivating!!

                        • Hey guys!
                          My first 3 days went horribly (I went out of town to visit family and party a bit.)
                          Looking forward to the rest of the whole30! day 4 and I am back on track.

                          So proud of everyone!

                            Hmm. Maybe I'll bump up my starches/fruits. Thanks!

                            • Hi all. Still going well here. So far, I've lost 2 lbs. I know, I know, not supposed to weigh, but it's what I do. Last time I didn't weigh for a month I gained 6 lbs. I think daily weighing helps keep me focused.

                              Feeling pretty good physically, but tired today. My kids kept me up a lot last night. Daughter had a tantrum at 2 am of all times to have one. Geesh. It sucked.

                              I hope everyone's having a great day!

                                Not stupid at all! When in doubt, go for the dark, leafy greens: spinach, collard greens, kelp, broccoli, swiss chard, kale. Also: brazil nuts, celery, almonds, papaya and oranges all have calcium.
