Anyone ever tried the Whole 30 diet plan? FI and I are thinking about trying it, one of my bridesmaids suggested it to me. FI and I have terrible eating habits at times and I am thinking we need a jumpstart.

@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!

@ceebree: Well I’m hoping that since it is only for 30 days that it won’t be too bad. I definitely need a reset when it comes to my eating habits. The hardest part is going to be the no sugar thing, I work in a bakery. 🙁

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.
