Looking for Whole30 Buddy...Starting July 9

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 03, 2012 at 5:11 PM

I'm looking for a Whole30 buddy to start July 9.

Anyone interested? I'm doing CrossFit and trying to give up the booze after the July 4th holiday.

Looking for overall health improvement and some weight loss.

That doesn't mean we can't use this group as a starting point but pair up with people with similar goals! I for one and interested in other people's goals, struggles and success because other may have the same experiences. But having a one-on-one buddy is very valuable.

I think a page is a good idea. A facebook page is a good idea too.

I'll set up a Facebook page tonight or tomorrow and post the name here. My name is Niki. :)

Seems like support is the best way to lose weight/get healthy. Hopefully, we can all support each other on the Whole30 journey!

Have a great day!

Here's the forum link:

I couldn't get a private group on Facebook, but hopefully everyone is okay with this format.

See you there!

i would do it, but I raise dairy goats and probably eat yogurt at least 3 times a week, plus I put the milk in my coffee. Other than that I already don't consume any of the other things on the list.

I'm in also! Tried a Whole 30 in April and only lasted about 3 weeks. Those darn sugars!! I am most interested in weightloss, beating my sugar demons and feeling great over all. I started on July 2 but with 4th and now I at a family reunion for the weekend... Well, I'm trying to do my best but it's not going so well... I am starting fresh & clean Monday morning.

I tried the link and it doesn't bring me to the forum.

Thanks!

Wow! Our group is growing! Strength in numbers!

Is anyone OPPOSED to a private Facebook page? I know not everyone (gasp!) is on Facebook, but I wanted to check. Just let me know.

Thanks!

Hi! My fiance and I are starting on the 9th 25yo female and 34yo male. I suffer from celiacs and widespread pain/fatigue. My last Whole30 was a disaster. I read It Start with Food and am totally ready to try again!

Hi There, I just made a similar post today. I'm 44, female. I'd love to have some support and accountability. Also, I'd really like to compare notes with women over 40. I found my body and food needs changed a lot after 40.

I posted another question looking for women over 40. If there is someone over 40 who want to work together on weight loss goals more closely, lemme know. I'm concerned this group is getting large and I think I'd be more attentive to my goals if I had 1 or 2 buddies who can give each other a little more direct attention with nutritional & emotional support. But I'm open to both.

Not a crossfitter--more of a swimmer/runner/walker w/some sporadic weights.

Me! Great idea. Day after my son's (8) birthday, too.

Read it starts with food (also the Paleo Solution and Primal Blueprint), been CrossFitting for 2 months and I love it. I recently did a nutrition challenge at my gym and had great results, but it seems that whenever I get going, I always slip up. I gained all the weight that I lost and now I feel terrible.

What worked for me when I lost a ton of weight a few years ago (with frequent cardio and severe caloric restriction-- never again) was having a buddy. My room mate and I did it together and we kept each other accountable. I was just going to post looking for a buddy but it seems someone already did!

24YO female from Omaha NE. I keep trying and failing and I need support to reach my goals. Are you guys in? Is there a better way to do this than just emails? Maybe a closed facebook page or a blog so we can post and comment instead of email back and forth?

I'm excited. It might be fun this time :)

Nice to get some responses!

Would it help if I set up a page on the Whole30 forum for us? I think I can do that.

I'm CFing 2x/week, boot camp 2/x and starting to train for a triathlon/marathon.

Let's support each other!

Let me know the best way to get us all connected.

Also, I just started reading It Starts With Food. Has anyone read it yet?

My email is: nikiuw at gmail

Hope to hear from everyone!

I'll give it a go with you guys since I failed last time after two weeks. A good support system would be a lot more helpful. I lift weights three times a week and do muay thai twice a week.

I was thinking of doing a Whole 30 starting about then. I'm more of a runner than a crossfitter (CF 1-2x max a week) but I am also interested how it will affect my performance.

I just started a whole 30 on Sunday. I'd be down to join you guys and continue on through August 9. Yesterday I started a "foods I'll eat on August 1" list so extending it might be really beneficial-- that list was a bad move for day 2. I do crossfit as well and am interested in comparing notes with someone also doing crossfit in regards to how it impacts performance. I'm far away in CA, but can e-mail.
