  1. I tried the Whole30 last year and failed at day 15. This time I'm a bit better prepared and better informed. I already have a meat stash in my freezer, tons of potatoes (around 33 lbs, but they cost only 6€/7US $), eggs and other veg and fruits. I realized that I have to use a bit of a different strategy here in germany, simply because I don't have some shortcuts (like compliant sausages, sauces, nutpods etc), so I will adapt the rules a bit instead of sweating the small stuff. I will try to follow every rule as best as I can, but I won't restart if I can't find a compliant
