    Whole30

    Hey guys - I'm starting my second round of Whole30 today - anyone else done it? Have thoughts on it?

    I haven't done that program specifically, but I have been trying to adjust my eating habits to cook more whole meals and eat less sugar/processed foods.

    My emphasis has been on slow, incremental adjustments rather than cold turkey cutting out everything at once. I'm not sure committing to 30 days at a time would work for me, but some people prefer that style. My only advice would be to keep a meal log. I find it helps me feel better about my choices as well as feel more "full", because I can see how much I've really eaten. Even without counting calories and just noting what I'm eating, it's helped a lot. Having someone check that log periodically also helps keep me accountable.

    Best of luck!! Second round sounds like it's going well

      Brunsonja - I like the whole30 being "cold turkey" only because I'm the kind of person who needs strict or absolute rules to be successful (just a little Type A lol). But I totally hear your point too - I'm not sure I'll sustain it after the 30 days but I have to admit I've always felt my best after cutting out dairy and processed foods - even though I love cheese lol

        fatgirlonamission I gave the Whole 30 book a peek on Amazon and those who reviewed the book (3K+) mostly gave it high marks. It seemed too restrictive for my tastes, but if that is what works for you, then go for it. I tend to stick with recipes from the Fit Couple Cooks YouTube channel. Speaking for myself, and only myself, I think staying away from processed crap and restricting sugar are the most important things for me. Brunsonja, I've just decided to start keeping a meal log and I think that really helps too, especially with snacking.
