• Hi, all. I did P20 a few years back and I’m really excited to get going on this now. It seems like the world is going sideways and I’m looking to take back control of the things that I can. This is #1 on my list. I’m a little nervous about giving up a glass of wine at the end of the night after the kiddo get put to bed, but if I can get through that, I’m excited to (re) find some healthy new habits. Last time the chat board was one of my favorite parts of P20, so I look forward to hearing from you guys here. Cheers to 20 days of self improvement!

  • Hi Julie! Thanks so much for introducing yourself. We are thrilled to have you back! You are a P20 veteran so you know that with time, you will create new habits that will leave you feeling like the best version of yourself. Check out the P20- Approved Beverages PDF in the Resources for some options to replace that evening glass of vino. Please let us know if you have any questions along the way!

  • Hi everyone! I also did PN years ago when life was feeling hectic, specifically after I had my twin babies. They are now six years old! Life now feels crazy in a different way.

    Like Julie, I am nervous about giving up the nightly cocktail. Quite honestly, it has become one of the things I look forward to as the day winds down.

    Now that I am juggling homeschooling and my job, it feels more important than ever to practice self-care. I will be eager for tips from the PN team about how to live well and also do all the stuff efficiently. And bring on the kid friendly recipes!

  • Hi! I’m also a PN alum. I’m hoping to get back on board as we’ve been eating lots of junk in the past few months. The last time I did the program, I was going through a crazy home remodel that took forever and I managed without a kitchen. I know this time will be a lot simpler (even if I have to give up the nightly drink! Boy, I’m going to miss it). I am a yoga teacher, wife, and mom to two girls ages 10 and 9. They’re big helpers in the kitchen right now and I’m excited to get them involved. Looking forward to the new recipes and getting bak on track.

  • Good morning! So excited to have some PN alumni back along with lots of new P20ers! Thank you for introducing yourself. We hope that you find this discussion board as a place to jump on and ask any questions (we are here for you!)…or simply just to connect with each other. It feels great knowing that there are others with similar goals and struggles. We often hear that the first five days are tough as you find yourself trying to create new habits (go-to snacks, evening routine shifts of mocktails/tea/baths and spending more time in the kitchen) – it gets easier, we promise.
    Our team is doing this program along with the entire group so please chime in to the discussion board if at any point we can be helpful or supportive. We will start a new thread with evening mocktail ideas…keep an eye out for it!

  • Hi all!
    My name is Beth. I am introducing myself late b/c I have been a bit slower to get organized, but didn’t want to miss the live program. I started today instead of yesterday. I did P20 some years ago on the recommendation of friends, but I didn’t engage much and mostly just used the recipe resources.

    I have had great success with feeling good and losing weight while doing Whole30 (and eating a diet that adheres very closely to W30 principles…sorry- I am not trying to talk about W30, but just explain where I am coming from), but I prefer to a lot eat less meat than most “paleo” diets seem to consist of (certainly less than I have found works for me on W30). I have also found that my body is able to tolerate some gluten-free grains and legumes, but I get nervous about integrating them in (worried I will eat too much or that they are not the healthiest options) and so I have fallen into an all-or-nothing trap. (During quarantine it’s been pretty much “all the things” regardless of how they make me feel after, including much more alcohol than I’d normally drink ;).

    The reason I am drawn to PN/P20 is to find a more long-term/sustainable way to be and to get some support doing that. I know it’s a life-long process, but I am always looking for new tools and ideas :). I am not a particularly skilled cook in terms of technique, but my husband and I try to cook a lot and love trying new recipes. I have a super-busy job that has been mostly (although not exclusively) at home for the last two months, and I am nervous about it transitioning back to “mostly not at home.” I have a 7 year-old son and a daughter who will be 3 next month. I want to model a healthy and happy relationship with food to them as well.

    Nice to “meet” you all!

  • Hi Beth! Welcome back to P20! You’re definitely not alone in falling into the “all-or-nothing” trap – it’s a sticky, tempting one, for sure! And I think a lot of us women, myself included, easily get tricked into the hope and thrill of new diets and then feel the guilt and shame that comes with “falling off track.” We hope you find a sustainable middle ground through P20 – that’s our goal! We like to say P20 is for ALL eaters – past Whole 30’ers, vegetarians, grazers, 3-square meal-ers…we welcome everyone 🙂 Our goal is to help you find a way of eating that works for YOU and, in the end, is as inclusive as possible.

    This seems like a great time to find some meals and snacks your family enjoys that you’ll be able to whip up easily once your job transitions back to “mostly not at home.” We’re big fans of batch cooking and you’ll find make-ahead tips in the notes of a lot of our recipes. That said, while you have a little more time, it could be fun to try some of the “fancier” recipes that require a little more prep than you’d normally have time for! Have fun with it! Let us know if you have any questions or would like any recommendations – we’re all here for you!
