    Cheshire Cheetah got a reaction from drtracyb in ADHD success stories?   
    Not with my kids (I'm 16, so no kids) but I did a mostly on track Whole30 in 2015 and found it much easier to concentrate. On a diet called Feingold my mom put me on when I was 9, the removal of artificial colours, flavours, and preservatives helped a lot with my ADHD. Since Whole30 is focusing on real foods, these are removed by default. Just make sure you do the reintroduction for Whole30 correctly, and maybe consider not reintroducing artificial colours at all.

    The first two are salts.
    Yeast extract appears to be non-compliant. It contains Glutamates (which may or may not contain gluten). Yeast extract is also made with sugar.

    Cheshire Cheetah got a reaction from Raven in First W30...Early Period   
    I've always had a long cycle (35-40 days between each period), but on my first Whole30 a year ago I was surprised by it arriving 2 weeks early. Granted, I am still a teen, but after that Whole30 I went back to my crappy way of eating, and my long cycle and painful cramps return. I am now back to a mostly Whole30 (took me almost a year), and I'll share my results when my "monthly visitor" arrives.

    If you're craving sugar, wait a few minutes and reevaluate. If you're hungry enough to eat something you don't usually seek out (in my case, any green vegetable but greenbeans), then prep a mini-meal. I try to keep out things such as fruit, nuts, and Whole30 approved seeds so that I am certain my sugar dragon is being properly starved, unless my body (and not my sugar dragon) is telling me I need such things. This sounds like your first Whole30, so your body is not yet properly communicating its needs to you. In other words, if you're hungry eat a mini-meal. If your sugar dragon is just throwing a tantrum, go find something distracting to do.
