    That is what I do anytime I get serious about losing weight and will do again soon. I always season 6 boneless chicken breast and grill it then make whole wheat tacos that I could take to work. I usually eat out at dinner though but watch what I order.

    The holidays have killed me.

    I just competed my Whole30 TODAY!!!

    Here's what happened…

    I have lost a total of 10 pounds
    I sleep SO much better that I actually stopped taking melatonin to get to sleep
    I learned a LOT about processed foods and now I pay attention to what I'm eating and how much SUGAR is in EVERYTHING!!!

    I have to go thru a 10 day reintroduction period to try out legumes, gluten free grains, dairy, and gluten grains. During this period I will KNOW exactly what foods cause me issues, and hopefully I can either avoid eating them or at least keep consumption in check. I have enjoyed this journey SO much, that I'm actually considering a Paleo lifestyle depending on how my reintroduction period goes. I was SO skeptical about this whole thing, and now I'm seriously convinced… what we eat plays a HUGE role in how we feel.

    I have never went to the extremes of the eating regiment of the Whole 30 but I know how much better I feel and when I am actually eating decent and drinking water all the time plus getting exercise every other day at the least. Lately I have at horribly and drank a lot of sweet tea and not worked out and I feel horrible and have gained 12lbs since mid november. I am still probably more active than a lot of people but my metabolism sucks so I gain weight easy but do not have any trouble losing 3-4lbs per week when I really try.

    I lost motivation and got lazy!!

    congrats on your weight loss and eating better.

    Good on you Tracey for trying this

    I myself don't eat any gluten or dairy whatsoever due to coeliac disease being diagnosed eight years ago I find the dairy free the hardest when eating out as most places use a heap of dairy, but I use a dairy free margarine or avocado but don't forget avocado is fattening, rice milk in cooking instead or real milk cheese I have found a pretend cheese but don't eat it that often but the eggs intrigued me eating so many as aren't they high in cholesterol I have been told by my heart rehab to have no more than 4 - 6 eggs a week for the cholesterol, I myself not to clued up on the paleo diet but seems to be the popular diet at the moment.
    Anyway good luck with your challenge.

Now forgive my ignorance but are eggs considered dairy?
    Eggs are a protein like fish and meat

    I was told by a naturopath many years ago to see if your thyroid is lacking in iodin is to paint the souls of your feet before going to bed at night with iodine if in the morning it's gone your thyroid needs it and you can do this instead of meds well I did this and made Richard do it too never believed it thought what a load of **** but in the morning Richard feet were still painted and mine was all absorbed so don't know if this is a fact or not though but thought I would mention it anyway.

    Eating out is seriously a challenge… I did it a couple of times on the whole30, but it was hard. I'm curious to see WHAT bothers me, I really hope it's NOT cheese… on the whole30 I was using coconut milk. I am SICK of eggs and avocados and I'm like you I'm curious to see how my cholesterol is affected by eating all of these eggs.

    I don't really know the rules of the Paleo diet… I think it follows whole30 in the NO dairy, sugar or grains but it's not as strict. I may follow it until I reach my weight goal, and then see if I can maintain this weight.

    Julie I know SO many people w/celiac disease, it must be difficult for you to travel w/your diet restrictions

    WOW I have never heard of that… I have thyroid, but my meds have been working for 2 years now.
