The_Maggie reacted to SugarcubeOD in Supplements Whole30 Compliant
Why should people not be encouraged to do their own research? Why do you feel that someone should come to the forum and say 'I don't want to learn about this, look it up for me' and then have a volunteer do the same research the participant is fully capable of?

I may be banned after this but that's a risk I'm willing to take:
I joined this forum over a month ago when I first started Whole30 so that I could get quick answers to questions without having to pull out my book. I haven't posted anything because I've been able to find everything I need by searching the forum and google. I will say that 75% of the people that are active on this forum couldn't find their way out of a paper bag. "Can we have corn?" No, it's in the book. "Is this processed jug of liquid compliant (even though it clearly states cane sugar on the label that I attached a picture of)?" No, it has sugar, which is clearly stated on the label that you attached a picture of. "I didn't lose any weight. I only cheated 8 times. I'm sad." It's not for weight loss. "I'm going to quit this diet because you're mean to me." You're an idiot (I also think you're the "oversensitive" poster who threatened to quit the "diet" when SugarcubeOD moved your non-Whole30 Whole30 log to another section but that's just me being hopeful that there's not two of you).
These moderators are saints. I would be cussing people left and right (I've actually done it in my head a few times). So, to the moderators - you don't have to apologize for anything. I want to apologize on behalf of the people that are lazy, don't like to find out answers on their own and expect you to spoon feed them. Some of us really do appreciate you and your straight forward answers.

Any medicine or supplement your doctor prescribed, definitely keep taking. Anything like the allergy medicine, even if it's OTC and not prescription, if you need it, take it.
For the supplements, we'd recommend if you're going to take them, finding compliant versions. Here's some information about what to look for in supplements.
No one here is a doctor, so if you are unsure about any of this, definitely talk to your doctor about the supplements and what they'd recommend.
