I'm currently thinking about doing a whole30 and would love to have a "team" to do it with. Support is great. Someone to bounce ideas, problems, stories off of is amazing. :)

First of all, I believe you are confused. Paleo and Whole30 are separate, they are not universally interchangeable terms. While paleo has a lot of gray areas, Whole30 is outline rather specifically. You are not on a Whole30 diet at all. If you... (more)

Whole30 isn't about obsessing over scale numbers. If anything, give your scale to someone to hide. Focus on eating following the Whole30 meal guide. Add more healthy fats, balance healthy carbs. Check out their guidelines for post and pre workout... (more)

Smoothies are not "strict-paleo" due to the fact you're drinking your calories and consuming a lot of sugar in one go. If you are REALLY want a smoothie, I would suggest making one at home using coconut milk or avocado as a fat source with a... (more)
