    SchrodingersCat reacted to ladyshanny in What about Gnocchi?   
    If you were looking for an official ruling from the Whole30 powers that be, on July 22, 2014 they posted this on FB:
     
    We hear you all talking about gnocchi. Even though potatoes are now on the menu, this is still pasta and still falls into the #SWYPO category. Use that incredible sauce on some zoodles or a gorgeous piece of meat instead.

    Peace love and vegetables brand sour kraut kimchi has no added sugar and is the best kimchi I have ever had. They are a Byron bay company, I live in S.A and my local organic shop stocks it, not sure if they do online. But you could check their stockists?

    The health benefits of kombucha (when fermented to just that negligible alcohol content in "normal" kombucha) outweigh that negligible alcohol content. When it's further fermented to have a significantly higher alcohol content, then it's more boozy beverage you drink for the sake of getting a buzz than a fermented beverage you drink for the good things it does for your gut. 
    You can't have freaking vanilla extract because of the alcohol content; I would think any liquid with a higher ABV than most beers would be obviously out.

    SchrodingersCat reacted to ladyshanny in Drinking Salt Water?   
    I saw that post too but it didn't read to me like "drinking salt water" as the OP described above (ie, stranded in a raft and drinking ocean water). It's pretty common for endurance athletes or extremely active people, especially during heat, to make their own electrolyte beverage or take salt tablets. It's because they are sweating their sodium out faster than they can replace it and it helps prevent cramping.
    The average person does not need to do this and, again, I wouldn't consider it "drinking salt water".
    Note, any time anyone mentions drinking salt water, I'm reminded of one of the steps of that CRAZY master cleanse which requires you to drink a litre of water with 2 heaping tsp of salt in it every morning on an empty stomach. This creates a nearly immediate and explosive, forced bowel movement and they call it a colon cleanse. Don't do this.

    SchrodingersCat reacted to ladyshanny in Suggestion...   
    Hi @JennWolfenbarger - basically the whole forum is devoted to the new W30 follower.  For the super basic questions, we encourage people to google (Whole30 + question) as it's the best way to start. Also, research tells us that going to some trouble to seek information out for oneself is more effective for learning than just posing a flat question and waiting for someone to hand you an answer.
    The documentation that comes for free on the Whole30 site also has the most basic information covered, we encourage folks to read everything available. When you add that to Googling, it means the basics don't need to be "constantly discussed repeatedly" like they are on Facebook. It's also worth remembering that all the moderators are volunteers that take time out of (usually) their own work day, to answer questions so it means a lot to us when people at least try to find the information themselves first. That frees us up to help with troubleshooting or the more complex questions. 
    Honestly, the info is all there............we encourage people to look for it. It's not hard to find.  On that note, was there something you were looking for that neither the Whole30 website nor google was able to tell you that you think might have been overlooked as something a new person would need?

    I'm quite looking forward to kicking this off! Plan for this weekend is to make and freeze a few litres each of compliant beef and chicken stock, smoke some fish and get some compliant bacon on to cure and pre-prep some breakfasts.

    SchrodingersCat reacted to MichelleJ in Suggestion: far fewer forum sections   
    This suggestion seems counter-intuitive, but please bear with me. 
    Segmenting forums into so many sections has the effect of making the forums far less active and giving far less visibility to topics. Because everything is so highly segmented, threads that are actually active are seen by few people. In each forum I've looked at, only perhaps the top few threads are somewhat recently active, as in from the past week. Very few are recently active, as in they were last posted in today or yesterday. This gives the forum a dead, inactive vibe.
    I've seen this effect in numerous forums. People request a new section, only to effectively kill off discussion of that topic since it is now hidden.
    This forum simply isn't active enough now to require so many sections. It also is a turn-off to attracting and retaining new users, since the forum comes across as inactive. When people make a post and get no or few replies, they are discouraged from posting again. There are a number of topics I would have replied to, but they are way old/inactive. As well, this level of segmentation discourages people from posting topics that are Whole30 related, but don't fit into a particular section. 
    If people are interested in a specific topic, that is what the search bar is for. At most, many of these could become a list of suggested tags while posting, and then links to interesting tags/searches such as women's health, athletes, kids, etc... 
    I suggest limiting it to about 5 sections at most. Perhaps, About the Forum (rules, feedback, etc), Introductions/Commit, Logs, Whole 30 General Chat. Maybe one more. Maybe Success Stories, but that could have the effect of hiding them. It might work though, if there are only a few sections. 
    Just a thought!

    Actually all , ignore this. I'm just being silly. All the other benefits are fantastic. I've changed more on this free program than I have with several other expensive nutritional coaching sessions. The weight that should come off will. I never started this for weight loss. Keeping my eye on the bigger prize- healing my body!
