Revenge of the radishes! Just remember - you are bigger than the radish. The radish cannot bite back. You WILL defeat the radish. What foods have been popping in & out of your dreams (or nightmares) lately? #Whole30 #dreams⠀ —⠀ Twitter user: Jenifer Palmer

"Just short of a year ago I met 2 wonderful women on a solo vacation to Puerto Rico. Within an hour of our conversation, we ended up chatting about diets, our relationship with food & struggles in those relationships. ⠀ — ⠀ They’d just wrapped up Whole30 & spoke highly of their experience. Fast forward to a couple of months later - I’d reached a point where I knew I needed a change for the better. Not a diet because clearly, diets do not work. I needed an overhaul on my relationship with food. ⠀ — ⠀ I’m not going to lie - those 30 days were the hardest 30 days of my life. I never realized how strong my Sugar Dragon was until the end of Week 1 when I broke down because all I wanted was chocolate. ⠀ — ⠀ Until that moment, I did not realize how quickly I would reach for the pasta, the cheeses, or the ice cream (all are absolutely delicious - but in moderation). During those first few days of my Whole30, I suffered all of the negative side effects; a headache & fatigue included. But I knew it’d pass because this was the wake-up call I needed. ⠀ — ⠀ I learned to love vegetables again. Hard-boiled eggs & baked potatoes were my lifesavers. Calorie counting habits were no more. I ate until I felt satisfied. My water intake went up & my taste buds slowly changed for the best. My sugar cravings subsided and I learned what foods my body agrees with. ⠀ — ⠀ I recently wrapped up my 2nd Whole 30 & feel even better than the 1st time. The idea of avoiding certain foods for 30 days no longer scares me. We as individuals make the ultimate decision for the food we consume. Instead of focusing on what I couldn’t eat while out with friends or family, I spoke of what I could. ⠀ — ⠀ I believe everyone should have the Whole30 experience; it is possibly the best way to build a better and healthier relationship with you. You owe to yourself. Be kind to yourself because this journey is one that is commendable. Acknowledge your accomplishments whether it's drinking more water or meal prepping for 5 days instead of 2! And at the end of the day, remember to love you first." - @alocurls #iamwhole30

"My first Whole30 was in January 2015. Toward the end of the 30 days, I found out I was pregnant. This pregnancy was a total surprise...Unfortunately, at that six week appointment they couldn’t find a heartbeat, and I went on to miscarry the pregnancy a month later.⠀ —⠀ Recovering from a miscarriage includes physical and emotional healing. Sympathetic friends told me that they got pregnant very soon after miscarriage, so I expected the same. Little did I know that I was embarking on an almost two-year struggle with secondary infertility."⠀ —⠀ In recognition of National Infertility Awareness Week, the @whole30hmhb team is sharing resources for preconception health on the Healthy Mama, Happy Baby blog. Our Content Coordinator @chelseakimlong shares her personal experience with secondary infertility. Click the link in our profile to read her story.⠀ —⠀ @Whole30hmhb is a pregnancy health program for women who want to apply the principles of the Whole30 program to every stage of their pregnancy. Our Healthy Mama, Happy Baby blog is a free resource for women in the Whole30 community, focusing on pre-conception, pregnancy, breastfeeding and postpartum health.

When the Whole30 community speaks, we listen. And while an astonishing amount of stories are positive, we make an effort to examine the less successful experiences as well. If you didn’t feel the “Whole30 magic,” @melissa_hartwig shared six potential explanations on our blog earlier this week. To delve in a little deeper, click the link in our profile! ⠀ — ⠀ If nothing else, the one thing we want you to take away from this article is that if the Whole30 didn’t work for you, you are not a failure, and there is nothing wrong with you. https://whole30.com/2018/04/didnt-work/
