    Chicken thighs causing bloating?

    Were they just plain thighs? I ask because some packaged raw chicken is brined to keep it moist. I have a freezer full of 'plain' chicken breasts which I can't eat on round, because they're brined and contain soy and whey.

    SchrodingersCat needing the accountability diary!

    OK, so today got away from me, but I was pretty good! Work lunch was on offer so I grabbed some vietnamese chicken salad with only a drizzle of dressing, and a handful of mixed cashews and almonds. Breakfast was 2 boiled eggs with mayo and dukkah. I have a huge craving for seared meat for dinner, either flank steak or roo if I can get some...

    SchrodingersCat needing the accountability diary!

    Thanks!! I think I really will. I also don't want to be weighing my food (or myself, if I can stay off the scale) so that's another reason I want to edge back to W30, I lost a lot of weight and felt so FREE not weighing and logging every bloody thing I ate (which I'd been doing for years). I figure so long as I cut back the starchy veg, which I'm fine with, and otherwise stay W30 (I don't eat fruit), I'll be good.

    Meal 1: Hot smoked salmon (home smoked!), boiled egg and OH NO I FORGOT MY SAURKRAUT!! Dammit. I'll have some of the 'slaw meant for lunch and grab some extra salad when I duck out. Meal 2: Thai Green Curry Salmon Patties, cabbage slaw with Peri Peri mayo Meal 3: It's Friday, so I'm not sure yet. Will report back. I'm feeling good about moving back to W30, keto made me feel bad for eating a carrot, wtf?
  5. Whattup, W30ers? It's been a while since I posted, in that time I've had an amazing Euro/UK trip, eaten all sorts of wonderful foods, gained all sorts of wonderful weight and while having a good time, now feel a big cruddy. I decided to try keto, because it seemed closeish to what I was trying to achieve, but I'm a social creature and the social media groups for keto are full of keto breads and artificial sweetener filled faux desserts and I'm just not feeling it. So I'm doing my own thing, and need somewhere to journal it and I missed this place. So here I am, applying my W30 learning to a lifeplan. My plan is a keto/W30/paleo hybrid, I guess - Generally Whole30 principles, without the strict ban on sulfites. I'll continue to avoid all grains, legumes, most dairy, and added sugar, save for small amounts such as that in bacon etc. No artificial sweeteners, because I don't like them, and no SWYPO baking because I really don't care for it, or miss bread or pasta. Basically, lots of meat, fish, eggs, veggies, good fats, and my beloved sauces and dressings (pesto, chimmichurri, lemon tahini etc etc). I never have gone back to store-bought mayo - my own is too tasty and too easy! So the result is I'm going to be fairly low carb, because I don't eat fruit and will minimise potato but I loved how I ate and felt on W30 so I'm aiming for that 90% of the time. I'm going to keep a daily diary here because I like journaling and like being able to come back to it. I also love interaction, so please comment away!!

    Bach rescue pastilles

    I found that my anxiety was so much better on Whole30. It was actually pretty crippling before.

    Can I have Iaso Tea?

    Ah, poop tea. I think it's terrible that companies like this encourage people to lose weight through laxative abuse.

    Paleo Valley Beef Sticks

    This is an interesting question. I make my own salamis and have to add dextrose to kick off the fermentation. It's eaten during the process, exactly the same way the sugar in kombucha is eaten. I think there's a legitimate argument that so long as the destrose is derived from a compliant source, as this is, it would be compliant in the same way that kombucha is, but I suspect others would disagree I avoided it on my rounds, anyway.

    Dealcoholized wine

    Same! I'd have thought it wasn't for the same reasons you've set out, but I was curious. Re the alcohol - if wine that's had the alcohol cooked out isn't ok, then I'd have thought this wasn't either.

    Dealcoholized wine

    If it didn't have the sulfite, would it be compliant? Just curious.
  11. SchrodingersCat


    It depends what it's brined/cured in. Most commercial hams will have sugar added to the brine/cure, but you can find compliant ones and you can definitely make your own (I do!) and have it be compliant. So long as ingredients are compliant, you're good to go.

    Need Ideas - Not Hungry and Nauseous

    That recipe is nowhere near Whole 30. Have you read the rules, or even checked out what the basis of Whole30 is? Is that your own website you're linking to?
  13. Coz I know you're all dying for an update, I have gone down the rabbit hole of being a binging, scoffing, ravening hose beast. According to the scales I've 'gained' 12 lbs in 6 days - my face is puffy, my hands are puffy, my stomach hurts... and yet I still go on. I'm at a work conference tomorrow and Saturday with zero control over food, but Round Whatever starts Sunday. I feel atrocious.
  14. Thanks @Emma! It's cathartic getting them out there and I'm determined to be honest here. So.... SIGH I just ate cookies. Because I'm tired and feeling garbage and they were there. And they made me feel MORE garbage! Literally have stomach pains now.
  15. I forgot how much I like mayo lol. It got mixed in with my salad dressing, and was really delicious!
