    157% yes! I would say that this is more common than an immediate digestive issue.

    reactions will vary person to person.  I would love it if there were a clear answer to this.  In my experience effects can happen a day or so later.  You can always double check it.  Eat whole 30 a few days till you feel good again and then retest the non gluten grains. If you have the same result in the morning then you likely have your answer :-)

    EllieViolet, please read what I write knowing that I absolutely relate to your frustration. I have MORE weight than you do to lose, and I have 10 years on you, so my chances are slim. You asked what you're doing wrong? In my opinion: 1. weighing yourself. 2. consciously or unconsciously restricting something....maybe calories, maybe fat. 3. believing with all your heart that this has not been worth it because you haven't shifted the scale. 
    However else you feel about your body, until you see its inherent worth and the value in feeding it real whole foods and not hyperstimulating restaurant food and a lot of sugar, you will condemn it. I know it sounds super hokey and not at all results that you want, but you have to believe that you deserve to be nourished for no other reason than that's what's good for your physical and mental and emotional health. I'm honestly convinced that self-loathing causes a disconnect in the brain that puts it in a fight-or-flight mode all the time, caused by the anxiety of not losing weight, which causes stress hormones to course through our bodies, which interfere with our bodies' ability to self regulate and so on and so on in a vicious circle. 
    Maybe you're right and this isn't the program for you. But you haven't wasted the effort by feeding yourself.

    MMC got a reaction from RBCali in Looking for an Over 50 Group to blog with   
    Heading quickly to 51, so I fit your category. I'm on day six but had to start over around day 10 when I had some chicken with non-compliant seasoning and my husband sprayed the grill with cooking spray. Seems kind of picky but I want to be strict with the rules. I think it's going to be hard to eat out without really haranguing the waiter/waitress about seasoning, what they cook with, etc. Other issues ya'll are having?

    Same thing happened to me! I got to day 10 a couple of days ago and was doing great but husband was in charge of supper and he put non-compliant seasoning on our chicken and sprayed the grill with something bad as well. Seems so silly, but I want to do everything right this time so started over. It's very hard to get motivated again but I'm just looking at it as a Whole 45. I also want to spend a lot of time reintroducing this time as well so I can really judge how food affects me. So I guess we are in it for a while. I'm sure your daughter will be supportive! My husband is pretty supportive but kind of thinks it's crazy too. But I'm sure you are experiencing some good things right now like I am--better sleep, rings looser on my fingers, more energy, better mood in general. So I'm just going to keep hanging in there. Hope you do, too!
