I am strongly considering doing the Whole 30 during the month of August. I need to try and cleanup the "cheats" that seem to sneak their way into my diet. And, as an added bonus perhaps I'll make some progress in losing some of the left over "baby weight" that I've been carrying for 10 yrs.

Anyone intested in joining me?

    I'm in, starting tomorrow. I did it last year 3 weeks right before Thanksgiving. The cheese was taunting me and I caved but not this time. I've been Primal for 7 months now. I got this.
  • I'm starting today (Aug 1) too. I'm right up for a strategy to clean up my (shabby of late) act.

    Can I start AUG 8???

    I'm starting August 6th... I have some yogurt and cheese I need to finish first.

    I have to say that I'm a little worried... When I gave up wheat/gluten, I was never able to go back to it because it makes me so sick. I am worried that I will discover I have the same problem with dairy!

    I will do my VERY best to post daily!!

    To start with, I suggest that we all "friend" one another and make our logs visible for added accountability. So, be looking for a friend request from me soon.

    For those of you who have attempted this before, please offer up helpful suggestions/advice!!
    One thing that I am going to struggle with is losing the stevia from my morning coffee....so I'm looking for ideas here. I confess that I wasn't completely prepared to start this today (I'm going shopping on my way home from work), and used my last tablespoon of Kerrygold butter, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, and 1 packet of stevia blended with 3 cups of coffee to make my daily "bulletproof coffee". Since butter is out, I'm going to try using coconut milk in place of the butter and coconut oil. Now I just need to come up with an alternative for the stevia!!

    Good Luck with Day 1!!

    Scuba, I'm worried about this too. But I also know that I rely way too much on dairy for my fat macronutrients. If my body reacts negatively, it's something I'm prepared to handle, because I think giving it up will show some real benefits, like helping with my weight loss, allergies, acne, etc. We've got to think of the positive that could result :)

    Recently, both of my boys have been showing signs of lactose intolerance. It probably will follow suit that I shouldn't be eating dairy either.

    I completely agree - Although worried, I am ready to handle it if I discover I shouldn't be eating dairy!

    Are you all planning on logging your food? In their book they say not to count calories and all that so you're not so focused It. I think it'll be really hard for me not to log but I might try it just for the 30 days b/c eventually I'd like to not have to log!

    I weighed myself on last time and put away the scale! Can't wait to see what it shows on the 30th!
