  1. Nope, no sweeteners. Try Nutpods, canned coconut milk or cold brewed drank black.
  2. Your meals are a bit light in general... eggs when they are the sole source of protein are as many as you can hold in one hand without dropping... 3-4 for most people. Avocado portion for fat is a half to a whole avo. I don't think the veggies you're listing constitute a FULL plate at every meal altho some might get there... One sausage is not (i assume) the width, depth and thickness of your palm, so you could increase that too. Nutrition is cumulative so it could just be catching up with you. Get familiar again with the template (linked in my signature below), make sure you're always adding fat (cooking fat barely counts) and then just power through those cravings. Giving in with fruit (or nuts) is not going to help, as you can see, it just perpetuates the craving. Take a bath, read a book or go to bed... just don't give in. Today, if you're actually hungry (like you could eat steamed fish and broccoli) then eat some protein and fat (a few bites of each) and then compose your meals a bit better tomorrow
  3. It happens to everyone... I'm not sure if it's number of posts or time as a member but it happens to everyone
  4. You may want to reconsider nuts - they can be very difficult to digest at the best of times, especially so on an empty stomach and are recommended to be limited (think a closed handful every other day at most... that's only about 5-6 almonds and even every other day is pushing it).
  5. I guess you could but there are many reasons why this is not your best choice. - drinking your meals messes with satiety (hungry and full) signals, seeds and nuts (flax and almond in this case) are an unbalanced fat source and this has no protein or veggies in it.
  6. Have you been eating within an hour of waking? Eating three meals a day that match the template? Drinking 1/2oz of water per pound of body weight? Stop eating a few hours before bed? If you want to list our what you've been eating to see if there's anything that we can tweak, feel free
  7. Hi Hillary - Just stay the course... you're only on Day 15 Also, depending on where you came from diet wise, it could take your body some time to trust that this is going to be a lasting change. as well, your body may be prioritizing healing internally over dropping weight. I'm really sorry to hear that you were in WW at 11... that's terrible Be patient, you CAN drop extra weight in your 60's but you may need to be more patient with your body... there's definitely nothing about eating whole, healthy foods that's going to be problematic.
  8. There's a small independent grocery store I go to and they roast their own roast beef that is compliant but that's all I've ever found... I don't really have a longing for deli meat anyway - I refuse to eat roast beef unless it's deli meat thin tho so that's the only reason I ever buy it... I love roast beef but have never been able to suitably make it myself.
  9. With some sort of protein and fat too right??
  10. No one has suggested that you don't participate. We get people occasionally trying to get one group together for a particular start date and this is always what we say because in our experience, the groups take on their own personalities and the huge ones don't get enough support.
  11. Hey there - we generally let people work out their own groups; each group has it's own personality and if they get too big, the moderators can't keep up so we let the groups grow organically. thanks!
  12. Protein and fat. Post workout is lean protein and starchy carbs, no fat.
  13. I think they want deli meat..
  14. Hey there - There's an entire forum category dedicated to doing Whole30 with kids... I'm moving your post there so hopefully you'll get some responses, but feel free to look through that category and see what you can find.
  15. Lots of people use almond butter - it might be a bit sweeter, depending on your almond butter but the solution to that is more lime and more salt... make it per the recipe and then add until you are happy with the flavor
