    June Whole30

    I haven't done a Whole30 challenge yet - have been focused on sorting my IBS issues. Now that I'm (mostly) stable on paleo/primal, I want to clean up some 'additive' cheats and manage stress better.

    Anyone care to join me? Just add your goals and starting point.

    My goals:
    • abstain from sugar in all processed forms
    • abstain from sauces etc that have gluten in them
    • limit fruit to berries only, but have as many as I want
    • track stress levels
    • track quality and quantity of sleep
    • daily diaphragmatic breathing
    • daily play


    Starting point: waist = 112cm

    I'll play. Been planning on doing one for June anyway. Here's my major goals:

    Clean 30 days (no sugar, no grain, no beans, no dairy, minimal fruit), plus:
    No vegetable/seed oils (making it impossible to eat out!)
    Exercise 3x week (even if it's only a walk)
    Complete 4 weeks of the 100 pushups program

    I don't really have any goals for the month weight wise, I'd love to loose some of my belly, but am mostly in it as a "re-boot" and to see what effect no dairy will have.

    Right now I'm trying to talk myself into eating sushi for dinner LOL

    Me too

    My goal is no dairy. I'm happy with my diet otherwise but man, can I put away that heavy cream. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

    Edited to add - also, no weighing myself for the month. I'm worried I'm obsessing over the scale.

    I'm a day ahead here, so it's 3pm on June 1st for me. Really funny that on my first day of restricting fruit there have been posts by Denise Minger and Free the Animal talking about how fruit can be good for you . Makes me feel better about my plan to reintroduce them later on and see if they still send my cravings through the roof - there is hope .

    Food so far today

    B: rooibos tea
    L: 5 chicken drumsticks

    Sleep: disturbed as I have an aching leg from walking on Sunday.
    Stress: fairly high. NOT taking the computer home tonight, so that'll help
    Breathing: 2 sessions so far - I feel my body relaxing into it
    Play: nothing yet - but I did get my hair done, does that count?

    Count me in! I've been off of dairy for a week now and have finally started losing weight again.
    So for me...
    *Sugar and grain free
    *Dairy free
    *Reducing fat (I think I was over-doing the fat. I needed it at the very beginning, but it was time to cut back. So I'm trying that for the month of June. We'll see...)
    *All fresh-prepared, whole foods.

    ETA: And I definitely think getting your hair done counts for play! A good hair stylist is so much better than a massuese. ;-)

    Yay! I've been planning a Whole30 for June for a couple weeks, nice to see other members doing the same

    Goals for June:
    -shutting the eating valve off at 7 every evening, turn on again around noon
    -no cheese, yogurt, milk - dairy turns me into a ravenous monster
    -no packaged (non-whole) food
    -no bread/pastry stuff. Will have to make an exception for a birthday celebration this month :/
    -sleep well!

    Oh darn, I'm in once I move! It's hard to star as "whole" as I'd like while still living with my parents.
    Although, I'm sort of already on it...

    My "whole":
    Avoid ALL possible souces of gluten
    No fruit
    No dairy (a little butter; planning on trying ghee)
    No sweeteners (I'm gonna stay on this)
    Limited nuts, nightshades (I have a suspicion that tomatoes bloat me up!) and tamari
    Eat whole foods (i.e. not making wannabe CW foods like coconut ice cream, baking etc.)
    Try to sleep those ~8 hours (although that seems to suck for me lately...)
    Have a somewhat therapeutic dose of n-3s (preferably around 10g)

    I think that's it...

    I don't get it. I googled it and it's about making a commitment to change for 30 days.

    I started my changes in Aug 2007. What would be the point in saying in Sep "there I did it?"

    Just make the changes and ignore the calendar.

    Whole30

    Ooh I'll join in! I've started and stopped a Whole30 (whole9 style) a couple of times and not been able to stick to more than 2 weeks without drinking. I am very close to being exactly where I want to be - weight wise, but I could use a boost. I'm pretty primal otherwise - I stay away from all grains, dairy and processed oils, but I struggle with too much chocolate, too many nuts ...

    My Whole30 goals:
    No diet coke, which has crept back into my life recently
    No more than 1 square of 85% chocolate, no more than a couple times a week
    Limit nut consumption - no more than a few/day, if any
    No sugary cocktails - Red wine if I must, but only one glass or a bloody mary if I really must, but I'll try to avoid alcohol altogether
    More variety of veg/meat in my lunches
    Lift heavy things 3 times/week

    Goal to lose 5lbs and/or what's left of my belly!

    @ Bissen, I recommend making ghee. It's super easy and makes everything taste amazing. I've been making it once every couple of weeks since I gave up dairy. Giving up milk in my tea and coffee was easy compared to figuring out what to cook with if I couldn't have butter and I was a little scared of making it at first, but you keep it on such a low heat there's no chance of burning it and/or setting the house on fire.
