Do you think I need to start over?? in Can I have ___? Posted May 16, 2017 On 5/14/2017 at 11:56 AM, SugarcubeOD said: The thing about sugar is that it's disallowed not for its inflammatory properties, but for it's addictive properties and for learning how much it is in EVERYTHING... even things that shoudln't have sugar in them (for example, hello sweetened applesauce??) So when saying it doesn't 'reset your reset', that's to do with your gut. We (we being the whole30 creators, staff and moderators) don't 'allow it', but we do understand that adults are capable of making their own decisions... in the example above, the point was that it won't reset the gut reset but it's not likely that a tablespoon of salad dressing is going to send someone into a down hill sugar spiral ending in a gallon of oreo ice cream... We ALWAYS stand behind starting over 100% of the time, but since we can't enforce it, we do give people the tools to decide for themselves.... an accidental sugar misstep in some salad dressing on the second to last day is quite different from choosing to eat a cookie on day 10... Thank you!
