The Tiger Blood doesn’t come until day 20+, so you definitely quit too soon to feel the awesome energy. I agree with your thoughts on the grains/legumes though, couldn’t wait to add back quinoa and black beans after my Whole30. I think those people that think “there’s no way I could do that” are the ones that probably need the reset the most!

I’ve never done a Whole 30 before. Based on your review, I don’t think it would be the best thing for me to try. I love my sweets and treats in moderation! For some crazy reason, I do think it would be interesting to try a 3 day juice re-start or cleanse to see how that was. A much shorter time!

I agree. I would have given up too. Not worth it and I always have to remind myself that food is fuel, not something to obsess over! Glad you realized how it was effecting (or not effecting) your body.

Thanks for sharing your review; it’s incredibly helpful! My biggest vice is your #2, which I’m afraid has only gotten worse as she’s get older=( In fact, there are certain snacks I just no longer buy bc I couldn’t stop, “one for you, one for me.”

Thanks for sharing your thoughts! While I’ve read the book, I knew right away it wasn’t going to work for me–don’t tell me oatmeal is bad for me! Ha!

proud of you for trying it, love! very proud! and i am proud of you for knowing when to stop, too. for me, the whole 30 made me focus LESS on food and improved my relationship with food, so for that i’m grateful! very grateful!

loved this post! miss you lots

great post! i don’t think that i would do the whole 30 because i love going out with friends and enjoying junk food every once in awhile. i also don’t have any digestive issues when eating grains and legumes and would be sad to cut them out – or label them ‘bad’, like you said.

thanks for the insights!

I agree that it’s not a great fit for everyone but love that you recommend it and gave it a try! I did it about a year ago and have been contemplating doing another for a few months now. I didn’t truly notice the extra energy until well into the third week and have heard many say they don’t see it until close to the end. Like you said it’s a great reset and no matter what I think definitely helps people to get back on track (or in some cases begin) to eating cleaner and healthier!

I tried the Whole 30 for 3 weeks, just to see if I would like to do it for the whole 30 days. I, like you, am not a huge meat eater and that was the biggest thing that I had trouble with, eating so much meat! I also got to the point where because I was so lazy/tired, I didn’t want to actually make a full meal so I would just be hungry. It was great to help with major snacking issues and listen to my body, but I think preparation was a huge part of it (prepping meals/veggies ahead of time).

Thanks for sharing your insights! I am about to start a 10 cleanse on October 1st…followed by another 14 days of clean eating that follows the whole foods eating! Definitely indulged a little this summer and needing to hit reset!
