    Laurenacc got a reaction from DivaNatalie in January 2 Start Date! Anyone else?   
    Amazing! So excited to have a huge group of 1/2/19 starters with me 
    I just weighted myself, took measurements, and "before" pics before starting tomorrow. My how that pesky scale has trickled up since I finished my last Whole30 in June...yikes!
    I have my breakfast, lunch, and dinner already prepped & in the refrigerator / freezer for the next few days. 
    Let's DO this, y'all!

    This will be my second reset, did my first 6 months ago and felt amazing afterwards! I kept the weight off (lost 20 lbs!) and was eating pretty well for a good 3 months post whole30...then a weekend trip to Boston totally threw me off and the scale has been trickling higher and higher and I’ve been feeling crummier and crummier ever since. Not to mention the holiday goodies that have been super tempting. Need a reset to get myself back on track. Cant wait to feel good again. Anyone else starting Jan 2???

    Laurenacc got a reaction from GoJo09 in Reintroduction: Alcohol question...   
    Thanks GoJo! I was following the Fast Track Reintro plan that I saw in The Whole30 book...it says Day 1 is optional for gluten-free alcohol but I figured I should include it, Day 1 (or 4) legumes, Day 4 (or 7) non gluten grains, Day 7 (or 10) dairy, Day 10 (or 13) gluten containing grains. No sugar reintro is mentioned...but it *does* say that many of the foods in the other food groups will also contain sugar. So...I assumed that meant there wasn't really a day given for sugar reintro. I'm happy to add it if there's a new reintro plan that I'm not aware of, but I was just trying to follow the outline I saw in the book.
    I'm fine with reintro-ing a dif gluten-free alcohol if the cider seems like a bad trigger, but I figured I should be testing alcoholic beverages I actually consume. I normally don't go for wine since it makes me sleepy- that seemed like the next best thing to try gluten-free wise. And I definitely don't want to take a shot of gluten-free tequila...nor sip it, blech! 
    I totally get what you mean when you say- having 1 cider turns into 2 and then going overboard and eating all things bad and messing up. But even when I wasn't doing the Whole30- I never have more than 1 drink, so I know that's definitely not going to be happening. I'll be surprised if I even finish one 12oz bottle. I'm a lightweight and don't care much for alcohol, I only choose to reintroduce it to see how my body reacts to having it again. And while I'm sure MANY people have said- "Oh I'm super strict, I'm not going to let this trigger me to eat anything else off-plan for that day"...I'm sure some have fallen off the wagon and given in. BUT- I've been struggling with stomach issues for years and I'm serious about doing this right so I can see which item will affect me and how. I'm almost certain during the 15 days of reintro, I'm not going to jump off the deep end and eat pizza, cake, and guzzle an irish car bomb in one sitting, hehe. 
    So...I guess this brings me back to: are either of these ciders ok to drink as my gluten-free alcoholic beverage reintro- or is it bad that I drink something sweet (even though the angry orchard doesn't say sugar in the ingredients) and with sulfites in it? Open to other gluten-free alcohol suggestions, I just want to make sure I have something around come the day I have that for my reintro. Thanks!
