Well, my Whole30 came to an abrupt end last week and ended up being a measly Whole4. I spent days one through three compliant, but miserable. Everything I read and everyone I talked to informed me that this was just part of the process and I was "slaying the sugar dragon." And then Day 4 happened. And by "happened" I mean that vomiting, diarrhea (sorry, TMI, I know!), fever and severe fatigue happened. I wasn't able to keep anything compliant down except fruit and water. I gave my doctor a call trying to get an appointment and she made it pretty clear that I needed to stop Whole30 and focus on getting better. So unfortunately, that is where my first journey with Whole30 ended.

|I thought I was prepared... HA!|
I approached it strategically, much like I do everything else to be honest. I wrote a spreadsheet (or three), I visited multiple grocery stores stocking up on my essentials. I read and re-read the program instructions and guidelines. I researched the books; curated recipes from everyone (thanks, guys!) and everywhere (Pinterest) I could find. And yet, I was unprepared for the reality that is Day 1. Let me tell you why.
