I’ve done two rounds of Whole30. The first time I did it back in August, I was energetic and enthusiastic. It didn’t feel THAT hard. Look, it’s hard but not horrible. You find out that sugar is in just about everything! I was able to find Whole30 compliant fruit strips but couldn’t find Whole30 beef jerky. What? Yeah, and there were like two brands of bacon that I could find. Absolutely eye opening!

But, with planning and reading labels, you can pretty much make it through. My biggest problem was that my energy was low because I don’t drink coffee and used to get my energy from Diet Coke, which had to go for so many reasons and I did it while on Whole30. It was hell for a while. I’m not going to lie. I had a major addiction. It was tough but I did survive Whole30.

And, like a true addict, I can’t just ease back into it and occasionally have one. After Whole30 the first time, I had one McDonald’s Diet Coke…and three months later the Diet Coke habit was just as bad as it was prior to Whole30.

So, I did another Whole30 to clean it back up, knowing that I can’t really go back to it again. Plus, I know that sugar really messes with my system. It hurts my stomach and while I don’t have diabetes, it feels like it messes with my blood sugar. I really learned all of this through the first Whole30 round.

There are so many benefits to Whole30. I lost a pant size the first time. The second time, I lost my holiday fluff that was making those pants too tight and muffin top-y.

Even though I feel amazing, I miss the food I love when I’m on Whole30. I miss cheese and carbs like pizza, etc. Luckily, potatoes help and so do sauces. That’s why you need go-to recipes and that’s also why we started with the 7 Staple Whole30 Sauces. Adding sauces save the day. I find a few recipes and put them on heavy rotation but if you don’t plan, you are in trouble, so having a list of recipes that will help you survive Whole30 is so important. I craved pasta and Italian food a lot and eventually I considered giving up and making spaghetti or pizza. But, we’ve figured out some recipes to lean into those cravings without quitting Whole30.

We’ve got your back. And, really, it won’t be that bad.
