    praxisproject got a reaction from Hope4Overcomers in Round Two of Whole30 starting August 4th. Anyone with me??   
    Sneaking in your group although I'm Post-W30 I'll only post compliant stuff in here.
    Rebooting my Food Freedom habits, started 1st of August. I find Post-W30 a little harder than W30 (silly I know). I've done so many rounds over the years I don't count them anymore.
    I owe all of my successful rounds to the yummy Whole30 recipes of Mel Joulwan (which are also sometimes funny), here's one of her awesome posts with loads of resources:

    Looking forward to dinner tonight, roast chicken! (bulk cooking tip -> two chickens at once!)

    praxisproject reacted to gross067 in Leg cramps every morning!   
    I use a topical magnesium oil before bed and notice a STRIKING difference in my sleep.  I haven't started whole 30 yet, but I've been having bad leg cramps for some time.  I just realized i didn't get them last night after dosing myself with magnesium oil, but it could be coincidence. Something to consider!

    I am hoping to start in Aug. I am getting ready now. I have done some protein prep that I put in the freezer and vacuum seal so no freezer burn. Grass fed burger pattie, homemade pork breakfast sausage, ground chicken (emergency food), also not pictured in turkey, sage, and walnut Meatloaf.

    praxisproject reacted to chichi in What does "riding your own bike" mean to you?   
    @Advocado I'm curious if after a while you have a different understanding of the 'is it worth it' mentality. My 'journey' with this wasn't quick, and I sometimes think people that feel like they've abruptly changed their entire life are in a honeymoon period and haven't landed back into their real lives yet. It is hard. It took me 3 years of gradual, gradual changes to feel like I truly operate, mostly unemotionally and without stress, with an 'is it worth it' mindset. I can tell you what it looks like now, though the first year was not much like this at all! It was eating like I did before the Whole 30 and feeling guilty.
    Now, 3ish years after I started this thing, when we go out to a 'nice' place, I'll just choose things that I know are minimally troublesome, though they might certainly still have added sugar, soy, legumes, etc., and I have no problem simply asking for 'no dairy' (that's the worst for me, I don't even enjoy the expensive meal because my sinuses are stuffed up and my throat is itchy as soon as I eat it). I don't ask the server specifics, I just generally steer away from things that are likely going to make me feel like garbage later. But I might still have a glass of wine or two, and I might still feel like garbage the next day sometimes. It doesn't send me crashing wildly into failure land. It reminds me why I love feeling mostly good most of the time, and why I really want to eat cabbage and eggs and every day for breakfast.
    I didn't get 'rid' of less healthy things permanently. Today I ate a melted chocolate out of my delivery van's cupholder, and I was so very, very low blood sugar that it was 110% worth it, and I was very, very excited to get home and eat shredded chicken with avocado, greens, and mustard, cold out of the fridge. I drink about 2% of the alcohol I used to, and don't miss it at all. I don't plan my less healthy foods, I just don't think about food as much as I used to. My general habits and choices have changed. My 'comfort foods' are the things I always have on hand that I can rely on to make me feel good, well fed.

    Oh good lord.  This is one of those things that I thought, "C'mon, how bad could it possibly be??" and then one fateful day I was visiting my mom and wanted to make mayo and all she had on hand was EVOO, so again, "it can't possibly be as bad as people say.............."

    yep, it's that bad.

    praxisproject reacted to bajabum in Nightshade Reaction Symptoms??   
    Hi Heather,
    Respiratory issues are exactly how my nightshade intolerance is manifest. With some nightshades at 1 meal, I develop a little cough. With multiple meals the cough gets worse, eating a lot of nightshades develops into persistent bronchitis and could develop into walking pneumonia. Of course when I went to see a board certified pulmonologist and asked if the cough could be food related, he said no and delayed my awareness of this issue another year or so, Grrrr...
    Funny @praxisproject mentions goji berries; I found out this the REALLY hard way. I literally ate two pounds of Goji Berry squares from whole foods over the course of 2 weeks and was thinking I was eating soooo  healthy. But when I developed my (now typical) severe nightshade symptoms and googled; my sspiciaons were confirmed that goji berry is one to seriously avoid.  I owe my awareness of this troublesome issue to David from Idaho who I met at OHI in San Diego. I developed coughing after eating sun dried tomatoes on raw vegan, grain free "pizza" and he mentioned it when I said I had my first coughing spell in 5 days. Wherever you are, thanks David! Hope this info helps you Heather!

    I'd hazard a guess that starch is preferred over sugar for recovery.
    Banana would be probably the only fruit with much starch, but I'm pretty sure it has quite a bit of sugar too.
     
    Starchy veg: sweet potato, plantains (mash, fritters, chips - can be bland or tasty), squash, pumpkin.
     
    There's a big difference in the body between sugar and starch, not for calories, but lots of internal processes, information pathways, etc.
     
    I'm sure a Mod will chime in with the details
