  1. Oh man! That sounds so painful for him! I have it in my feet. Whole30 has really helped with my gout, but oddly enough I have yet to pinpoint what causes my flare-ups. The good news is with my Food Freedom I rarely have flare-ups anymore.
  2. @Brewer5 that's so cool you got a sign! I love when that happens. I just put that book you mentioned on hold. I cannot wait to read it. Thanks for sharing!

Please reach out with questions!

How did the guidelines you set for your Food Freedom help you? Did you come to any realizations that you need revisions to what you previously created for yourself?
  7. Ohe thing that I find handy is to make extra at dinner or lunchtime and eat that for breakfast. Once I changed my mindset and started to think of meals as Meal One, Two, or Three instead of breakfast, lunch, or dinner; I was able to eat anything at any time of day. No shame in eating a porkchop or leftover steak for Meal One. Meatballs (like poppers mentioned above) are another great item to make ahead of time. You can eat them on their own or add to mixed greens and make a salad. I also batch cook up potatoes and hardboiled eggs ahead of time. Having a few options on hand that you
