Anyone else doing a July Whole30? Would you like to?

I am, and would love some moral support! I tried to start one for the new year, but fell off the wagon with booze, butter, and heavy cream & truvia in the coffee. I feel so much better than I did before going paleo, but I'm still having some gut issues that I need to suss out. I've done 21-day detoxes before (CLEAN Program) and found it really helpful to have the online support network (the live-in boyfriend eats pretty healthy but isn't real keen on challenges like this). If anyone's interested, maybe I could set up a group for us on Facebook, or we could keep in touch on each other's blogs. I proposed the idea to my girlfriends that eat paleo, but they didn't want to jeopardize their summer drinking plans, haha.

So, who's in?

I might be able to survive with ghee.

Ghee is ok though, and is better than butter!

I'd be game except I'm throwing a euchre tournament/party and serving sangria. Gah. It gets me every time! Next time, I'm totally in.

Butter is not allowed on the Whole30, and that makes me sad :( I started a facebook group- https://www.facebook.com/#!/home.php?sk=group_239343116076739&ap=1 Please do join us, even if you want to keep your butter (just don't talk about butter or it'll make me sadder, haha).

That's my thing- I'm not a milk drinker but I love my butter & cream! Unfortunately I think the cream is causing some problems :( Maybe I can track down my local raw-dairy-fugitive Amish and get some raw stuff after the Whole30...

For reference, howzabout posting a few Whole30 guidelines/blog post links here pointing to what you had in mind, so we're all on the same sheet of music...?

Love to see people jumping on board with the Whole30 - Version 4.0 will be up on the site on July 1st. If you're on Facebook, check out the new (official) Whole30 page for tips, tricks, recipes and accountability: www.facebook.com/Whole30. And if you're Tweeting about your W30 program, make sure you @ us! @whole9life. Best of luck to all of you.

Count me in. Not really "off the Paleo wagon", but need some motivation for really clean eating for a while.

I was all in until I saw someone's mention above about butter...hmmm...I think I could still swing it if I use bacon grease instead.

I am on vacation the end of July, so I'm going to start mine a little early to make it an even 30 days.

I'll be starting the challenge on Monday (6-27).

If I'm allowed to keep my butter, I'll join in! I guess I could try without it, but I really don't want to. Let me know how we communicate as a group. Maybe Patrik would let us do it on here? Just start the question: how was your whole 30 today?

Did not do it in July, just started an august 2011 run

I roasted a whole pastured chicken with my homemade paleo BBQ sauce, and made a big batch of grass fed beef taco hash. Some steamed broccoli on the side!

Won't be starting until the 5th but yes, I've been planning on doing exactly this for a month or so now. Spending the time through the 5th with friends and family so I'm cheating more than I'd like to (I know excuses, excuses) and I haven't done a 110% strict 30 days yet but I'm definitely on board, just a few days late to the party. I'll be checking back daily to give and get progress updates. Bring on the good health!
