    Thank you for this! They have this conversation with the TJ's cashier (and this was yesterday) Me: do you have Larabars? Cashier: yes, many kinds. Do you want me to hold your place in line while you run over? Me: No. Thank you but I can't have them right now. Cashier: but they're just fruit and nuts Me: I know, but I have an unhealthy psychological relationship with them. They feel like dessert. Cashier: but they're just fruit and nuts

    I remember using EDTA in my college environmental engineering lab. We used it in determining water hardness. It never occured to me that one might drink it voluntarily. Now I've been known to slug a 5HE here and there (before I was Whole-englightened), but pretty sure that knowing what's in it I will never drink it again.

    In soft drinks containing ascorbic acid and sodium benzoate, EDTA mitigates formation of benzene (a carcinogen).[10] Scary indeed! It makes sodium benzoate a lot more scary, too...... BTW...once you have gotten into the Whole 30...5 hour energy is NOT necessary! I seldom get tired in the afternoon, but DAMN am I ready for bed at night. Thank you, cortisol, for working properly!

    My interpretation is that one of the main points of undertaking W30 is that you clear your body of the stuff that makes you need the "fix".... now don't get me wrong, I like my coffee in the morning, so I understand the desire for caffeine. But understand that the more you drink it (especially at times other than the morning) you increase the likelihood of sleep disturbances, and reduce the opportunity for your hormones to self-regulate (and of course your hormonal balance or lack thereof is what is making you tired...) When I get tired at my desk in the afternoon (which doesn't happen as frequently nor severely these days) I've been drinking a cup of herbal tea, where in the past I would've hit the coffee again then twitched myself to an unrestful sleep come bedtime. I don't even think there's much, if any, caffiene in it, but something about hot liquid wakes me up.

    You know someone is doing a Whole30 when...

    You giggle while watching MacGyver and 21 Jump Street and RDA and Johnny Depp's characters both check labels for MSG. You whine while passing three dozen signs for Amish baked goods on the way to town.

    You watch an old episode of NCIS and when a character turns down the offer of a burger with a "No thanks, I don't eat food I haven't cooked myself", you immediately think Wow, that's how to do a whole 30. and I really can't believe I'm doing this but When you save up for ages for a new pair of leather boots and then decide to blow the money on a vacuum food saver instead - and you're excited about it

    You attend your niece's wedding reception, get asked to help slice the wedding cake for guests, spend 15 minutes slicing and serving multiple layers of a beautiful cake with various fillings plus thick and creamy frosting, and you STILL DON'T TRY A BITE OR EVEN LICK YOUR FINGERS WHEN YOU ARE DONE SERVING THE WEDDING GUESTS!
