    I'm in! I'm excited and totally scared at the same time. I'm Korean and I live on rice and love carbs. Also, one of my go-to meals (and one of my husband's favorites) is chili and in general, I stir-fry almost everything in soy sauce. Beans and soy sauce are on the ban-list, I think. :noway:

    But, I'm going to give it a try...

    My only thing is I'm not sure if I should start this coming Sunday (need to finish the food I already cooked for the week...gotta enjoy that chili) or if I should wait until after I get back from vacation (Aug 9-13). What do you think?

    I started this last Tuesday, so am on Day 8. I'm in!

    Feel pretty good, have more energy than usualy, and *ahem* *doffs British reserve* stomach really good which I'm wondering if is to do with cutting out dairy, as was already eating primal.

    I essentially started this yesterday so August 1 will be Day 3.

    I do make some modifications though including buying regular grocery store meat instead of insisting on the free-range, grain-fed stuff (I know it is better but I am broke!) and I will have the occassional diet soda (maybe 2, 12oz per week).

    If you'll accept me with my mods, I'm in!

    I'm in. I've been primal for 2 years now..... on and off. My inner warrior needs a boost and the sugar queen has been ever so present! Time to run her back to the castle and close the door. Please put me in your group. My email address is zia(at)nehalemtel.net. Let's rock this!

    BTW here are a few tips for making it work. On http://www.thefoodee.com/ (http://www.thefoodee.com/?s=whole+30) and http://www.chowstalker.com/ (http://www.chowstalker.com/?bwbps_extnav_gal=29&bwbps_q=whole+30) they have whole 30 recipes that are amazing. Also can't go wrong with the blog "clothes make the girl" over at http://www.theclothesmakethegirl.com/ . Also Whole 30 group is starting on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/groups/whole30paleo/ And a great group called whole9 that has a facebook page and just published a book on it over at http://www.facebook.com/Whole9.

    here we go!
