Whole30 Success Stories – What can we learn from them?

Whole30 Success Stories

As many of you know, I’ve done Whole30 twice (see my Whole30 results: round 1 and round 2). And I’m sure that many of you have started Whole30 on January 1 or are planning to do so very soon.

When I was on Whole30 I was really eager to read other people’s success stories, for motivation and for just mental support. So I thought I’d help you out!

In this article I will post a roundup of links to ten Whole30 success stories and also bring some quotes from them that I find particularly important and meaningful.

What can we learn from their success and mistakes?

Whole30 and 30 Day Shred: Week 3

Whole30 and 30 Day Shred week 3

Another week on Whole30!

Overall week 3 has been interesting. I haven’t accomplished as much as I hoped: I haven’t eaten proper breakfasts (= more than just fruits) and I haven’t had any fish.

But then again I have started shredding again! Not as much as I would like to but I’ve done four 30 Day Shred workouts this week – that is certainly an improvement to my zero workouts last week

Here’s my week 3 report:

Whole30 and 30 Day Shred: Week 2

What a week it’s been. I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t done that well this week.

30 Day Shred and Whole30 week 2

Well, my diet has been OK. I haven’t eaten anything that’s not allowed, so I have to be pleased with that. But my workouts… Or the lack of them.

I haven’t done 30 Day Shred once this week.

There, I said it. I already thought about taking the word 30 Day Shred off from the title of this post. Well, I’m going to have to if I keep this up.

Here’s my report on week 2:

Whole30: Reintroduction, learning from mistakes and starting over

Whole30 reintroduction

It’s been an interesting week.

I finished Whole30 on Sunday last week (have a look at my Whole30 results) and I’ve spent this week reintroducing dairy, grains, sugar and alcohol back to my diet.

The Whole30 website has some instructions on how to reintroduce the off-plan foods. We are supposed to do it slowly during 10 days, one food group at a time in order to know how our bodies react to them.

In my experience, this reintroduction period is hard, so if you’re just about to enter it, plan well.

I did it! I made it through the 30 days and live to tell. Today is Day 30 of My Whole30. I find it difficult to put to words – or even thoughts – what it’s been like for the past month, but I am very, very happy I did this.

For me the thing with Whole30 is that you don’t really need willpower to do it. I guess that was a surprise for me. You just need to have patience. Patience to live by the rules one day at the time and trust that you’ll get results.

And here are my results:
