@mrsmeyers84:  My sister generally tries to do it.  She isn’t good about it, but she does like it in theory.  I don’t know if it’s a miracle cure like they say, but it’s gotta be better than eating normally!

My husband and I are in the last week of our first Whole 30.  I have nothing negative to say about the experience – we are both really glad that we did it.  Neither of us experienced the so-called “tiger blood energy” that you’re supposed to feel after week 2, but we both agreed that we generally felt more alert and found it easier to concentrate at work.  I do think my allergies have improved a bit, but certainly aren’t 100% gone.  I have noticed a big difference in sugar cravings though.  I used to grab for something sweet almost every day after dinner, and now it’s no big deal.  The only thing I really miss is the occasional treat on the weekends (like an ice cream or a brat at a friend’s BBQ).  I’m not sure if I’ve lost any weight (you’re not supposed to weight yourself until the 30 days are complete), but I think it’s probably minimal, if anything.  But I did the Whole 30 more for health reasons than weight loss, so I’m OK with it.  I was around 130 (at 5’5”) to begin with, so if I really wanted to lose weight, I’d probably have to ramp my workouts up a notch and eat less nuts/fruit than I did this time around.
