So I fell off the earth and just re-started whole 30 yesterday. http://areapersonality.blogspot.com/2011/07/two-of-thirty-perhaps.html
Must... be... strong...

Past 4 days, I've done well. Having protein style hamburgers at pool parties, has been a great conversation starter which leads to Paleo.

Popcorn is NOT part of the Paleo/Primal/Whole 30 programs.

I was way too stress and wanted something salty, plus I was out of turkey jerky. I was weak.

I'd be careful with the popcorn, I'm not sure it really fits under the challenge rules. I was tempted by some truffle oil popcorn on the fourth and hated having to say no.

Day 7 I'm feeling motivated.

Yesterday was tough, way too much going on at work got the best of me. I skipped my workout, and I had a bowl of air pop organic popcorn. Luckily my stomach did okay.

I didn't realize there was a challenge thread, hope it's not to late to join in now. I started on Friday and was able to make it through it the holiday weekend unscathed. This mornings meeting where there were bowls of cheetos was harder, but I resisted and next time I'll come prepared.

All,

A few more days and we'll be starting our July Challenge. Remember we will be faced with a holiday weekend, so we must be strong. Let's get ready, plan ahead and be cautious with temptations.

*Aside from the honor system in staying with the program, maybe we can post our waist measurements on a weekly basis, and our intake in a simple format*

Example:
B - Eggs, bacon, avocado, green tea
L- Chicken breast, greens, lemon
D - Flank steak, salsa, bell peppers, collard greens
S - Cinnamon tea

Welcome suggestions.

The Whole 30 Program, As Outlined

Eat real food – meat, fish, eggs, tons of vegetables, some fruit, and plenty of good fats. Eat foods with very few ingredients, all pronounceable ingredients, or better yet, no ingredients listed at all because they’re natural and unprocessed.

More importantly, here’s what NOT to eat during the duration of your Whole30 program. Omitting all of these foods and beverages will help you regain your healthy metabolism, reduce systemic inflammation, and help you discover how these foods are truly impacting your health, fitness and quality of life.

•Do not consume added sugar of any kind, real or artificial. No maple syrup, honey, agave nectar, Splenda, Equal, Nutrasweet, xylitol, stevia, etc. Read your labels, because companies sneak sugar into products in all kinds of ways.
•Do not eat processed foods. This includes protein shakes, pre-packaged snacks/meals, protein bars, milk substitutes, etc.
•Do not drink alcohol, in any form.
•Do not eat grains. This includes (but is not limited to) wheat, rye, barley, millet, oats, corn, rice, sprouted grains and all of those gluten-free pseudo-grains like quinoa. (Yes, we said corn!) This also includes all the ways we add wheat, corn and rice into our foods in the form of bran, germ, starch and so on. Again, read your labels.
•Do not eat legumes. This includes beans (black, kidney, lima, etc.), peas, lentils, and peanuts or peanut butter. This also includes all forms of soy – soy sauce, miso, tofu, tempeh, edamame, and all the ways we sneak soy into foods (like lecithin).
•Do not eat dairy. This includes all cow, goat or sheep’s milk, cream, butter, cheese, yogurt, whey, ice cream, etc.
•Do not eat white potatoes. It’s arbitrary, but they are carbohydrate-dense and nutrient poor, and also a nightshade.
•Most importantly… do not try to shove your old, unhealthy diet into a shiny new Whole30 mold. This means no “Paleo-fying” less-than-healthy recipes – no “Paleo” pancakes, “Paleo” pizza, “Paleo” fudge or “Paleo” ice cream. Don’t mimic poor food choices during your Whole30 program!
One last and final rule. You are not allowed to step on the scale for the duration of your Whole30 program. This is about so much more than just weight loss, and to focus only on your body composition means you’ll miss out on the most dramatic (and lifelong) benefits this plan has to offer. Give yourself a well-deserved, long overdue break from fixating on that number on the scale! Absolutely NO weighing yourself or taking comparative measurements during your Whole30.

Hi Krystal ,

Really scared here, but I'll do it. Count me in for the July 1st Challenge. Thanks for posting the link.

I am waiting to do another Whole30 until after summer. No booze for 30 days in the summer just ain't gonna happen! :) Good luck to those of you who go for it!

I'd be up for a Whole30 challenge! I'm in the middle of a 30 day challenge now and would love to extend it another month.

The new Whole30 info can be found here: whole9life.com/2011/06/a-new-whole30-and-a
n-updated-success-guide/
. The current Whole30 is here: whole9life.com/2010/12/whole30-2011/

As a team on SP, we can decide which challenge we wish to do, though! Whole30 isn't for everyone. It was nearly disastrous for me when I last attempted it, but I want to give it another go.

Anyone up for a new challenge in July? I'm thinking either a Whole30 challenge (they're revamping the plan and releasing it on July 1) or just a regular ol' month-long Paleo challenge.
