    Hi all. Happy Belated, @Crimsann, hang in there, @misslindy, and good for you, @vozelle!! I've just had a week of playing zookeeper and feeding my sugar/grain dragon. I'm holding on to Crimsann's symmetry of Monday and May 1st being the same day, and preparing myself for a return to sanity. It started a few weeks ago with the reintro of (yes, bad idea written ALL over it...) tortilla chips. I rationalized that the guac and salsa were healthy and compliant. Didn't see then that it would backfire this badly. Now that I've had a couple of days of sugar and bread, I can say with certainty that I feel MUCH worse while indulging in these foods. Stomach troubles are back in spades, and blood sugar is bouncing all over the place. Was it worth it? No. No. No. At least I have a freezer full of compliant meals to fall back on--not officially a 30, but very close to it. My Food Freedom has just gotten a bit more clear about what it doesn't include. I knew this before, but apparently had to prove it out. I'd like to try some paleo banana blueberry bread, to add a breakfast option. Will wait a while now to do that. How is everyone else doing? We're missing a few lately...

    Good luck navigating the emotional waters, @misslindy... I've been dealing with a lot too. We'll get through... Happy Belated Birthday @Crimsann, excited for you about the year long challenge! I have successfully incorporated honey back into my life (the only sweetener I'm using), and am not having any major sugar dragon experiences. I bake occasional things at home, or purchase from local farmer's market (we have a great Paleo bakery lady there), and have been in good balance with it. I like having more variety and options, and not feeling deprived... the occasional healthy treat makes me happy, and I have no problems with portion control. I may have found my food freedom with sweets, yay!

    Hello Easter has been and gone along with the rabbit and his chocolate--I did eat a marshmallow egg and honestly it tasted so awful I won't do that again! Didn't even really want it to begin with but there you go. have been having a terrible time personally lately so struggling to eat at all, much less properly. I haven't done too badly but really could do better. Emotions just take over my life at times and everything goes belly up! Does anyone use Open Office? I am having a terrible time formatting some documents--would really appreciate some help if anyone knows how. I use Writer 5. Now I almost hate to say this but in the spirit of full disclosure: I went to Carl's Jr and had a burger--I loved it. I haven't had food from any kind of fast food outlet for years and I had been fighting the idea of having a burger for a few weeks. Thought about it and decided I would do it--for me, it was worth it but haven't needed or wanted to do it again. I think that is the spirit of food freedom so feel quite fine about it for myself. (Some other things I haven't felt that way about).pI have booked an appointment with a physio who specializes in movement. I seriously need to do some more exercise and I want to be sure I am doing things the right way for me. I have finally got my foot back to no pain, but why did it happen is my question? And how to prevent future outbreaks!!! Hope you are all chugging along at a pace you are comfortable with.

    There is a great cookbook called "Against All Grain" by Danielle Walker... can highly recommend if you want to live a grain-free life for awhile. I am having to go without grains due to ongoing SIBO treatment. It's not so bad. HAPPY EASTER! Hello everyone, it's been good reading your updates and notesworthy news. Wishing you all well. I try not to spend much time on the computer, just cruising through to say howdy and that I'm still here. Currently in Phase 1 of my second round of SIBO treatment, which will likely include 3 phases over the next 3-5 months, depending on symptoms and response. Meanwhile, I'm studying up on SIBO and learning everything I can about what's going on inside. Blessings!

    Recommendation for Multi-Vitamins

    OK, replying to myself to say there appear to be 2 formulations, one with tomato (has "Premium Formula" in a red flag on the box and bottle) which is noncompliant if you are doing AIP, and one with AIP and Whole30 compliant ingredients (no tomatoes) (has "New" in the red flag). In case anyone needs to know.

    Recommendation for Multi-Vitamins

    I just looked at the Nature's Way for women over 50 and found that it has tomato, which is fine for those on Whole30 but not those following AIP as well. The regular one "Whole Food Energizer" appears to be compliant with both Whole30 and AIP. Thanks for the heads up, this thread gave me a good starting point.

    Recommendation for Multi-Vitamins

    I'm not a doctor nor profess to be one, I've had gastric bypass and felt I needed to have some vitamins also, because after gastric bypass your on a slew of vitamins. I looked for natural vitamins and found "Alive" they also have it for women over 50+. All natural and compliant I made sure hopefully this helps, I searched a LONG time to find something and found them! Good Luck!

    Recommendation for Multi-Vitamins

    we're not doctors, our advice is just that, advice. If you feel you need more energy, then I suggest that you increase your meal size slightly. if you have real concerns than consult a qualified nutritionalist, or your GP.

    Recommendation for Multi-Vitamins

    Thanks for the info. I should have mentioned I've done a Whole 30 twice, and lost 28 lbs. I've been doing a modified W30 since I had my knee replaced June 20. I've been feeling the need for some extra energy, which is probably part of the recovery process.

    Recommendation for Multi-Vitamins

    We actually recommend that you forgo your multi vitamin during Whole30 as you should/will be eating such a vast variety of protein, vegetables, fat and some fruit that the vitamin should be unnecessary. The Whole30 recommendation is for a brand you could use if you were wanting to supplement. It's not that they are recommending folks take a multi.
