Hi, I'm a newbie here and am curious about the "Whole 30" program but don't see it anywhere. Could you post a link? thanks!
breakfast: pork belly paté with 2 hard boiled eggs, lettuce, scallions and tomatoes
early dinner: leftover beef kidneys with scallions and iceberg salad
I do not expect to eat anything else today except maybe a few blueberries and raspberries.
Movement: just about 30 minutes of walking
Leisure: I hope to spend about 2 hours reading
I'm on day 30. Doing well. Will weigh myself tomorrow to see how I fared in that category. Am continuing on to at least a Whole 45, as I have some extra poundage to expel from my body and I'm not quite ready to move into the rhythm of regular primal yet.
This has been worth every bit of effort, as it has become almost effortless. Glad I made the commitment.
Congrats! I will keep my fingers crossed for you when you face the scale.
I'm on Day 23. I am curious to see how Apple did. I want to weigh but am resisting. I feel better and lighter that has to count for something! I think I will extend mine past the 30 day mark because Im scheduled to end on a Tuesday. I really want to end on a weekend. If I decide to go off plan I want to be near home. Maybe that's just my way of trying to excuse keeping my "training wheels" on. Any seasoned W30 ers have an opinion on going off plan?
I hope all who are nearing the end have great success!
So far for me this has been awesome. It is easier than I thought it would be.
Tried an 18hr IF yesterday until this morning and I am in shock at how easy it was. No hunger, no fatigue. Awesome!

Whole 30 Results:
Lost 8 lbs - Yeah! Not bad for someone my age (54). That is the most weight I've lost in a month in years.
More alert all day
Cravings gone/Most food/eating issues are gone (hopefully permanantly)
Much less joint pain
Overall good feeling
I'm continuing on to a Whole 45 - Perhaps a Whole 60, as I still feel I have some work to do on my weight loss journey, and I'm not yet ready to begin adding food groups in yet.
When I do go back to my regular Primal thing, my guess is that I will only add some occasional cheese, a glass of wine on social occasions, and I will be able to be a bit more flexible when dining out or during special occasions (maybe some primal/paleo compliant desserts), however, I will probably keep close to the Whole 30 template for the most part, as I can't see too many reasons to do otherwise. That's all in the future, however.
Sounds like everyone else is doing really well.
