    Hey guys,
    I am on day 17. I actually feel really good. I feel like I made it over the hump of halfway and now feel like the next 13 days will be much easier than the first half. Hope everyone else is doing well!!

    @Lokan_V I made the same mistake at the beginning, but then realized duh it’s chocolate haha. 
    I think all the fruit ones are compliant as long as they don’t have peanuts in them.

    @kirbz I agree with that. I don't understand why everything has to have sugar in it. They are making people hooked on sugar without even knowing it since most people don't read labels. In all honest I didn't read many labels either until I started Whole 30, now I can't imagine not.

    Another suggestion for something simple is boil a bunch of chicken and then shed it. Then you can have chicken ready and you can mix it with franks red hot buffalo or the curry chicken salad from the fast & easy book and put it in a lettuce wrap or on a salad. This trick has really helped me stay on track personally.

    @stonehouse I totally agree they are delicious! Have you had the ketchup? I finally found it the other day and it is so much like regular ketchup. Primal kitchen helps me not feel like I’m missing out on all the regular sauces because they are actually good!

    Pants were a tiny bit looser today. Woot! And had some fantastic mental clarity. I have been training for a new position at work and I'm definitely noticing the difference mentally just in how interested I am in what I am learning and in how quickly I am picking things up. Also have been more present and aware of my coworkers and I'm joking more with them. I am definitely in a better mood.
    Just out of curiosity, how much do you guys regulate how much fat is in your diet? The reason I am asking is because I put Ranch dressing on everything (salad, steamed potatoes and sometimes chicken). Is that a big deal?

    @kirbz Since you have done this before maybe you have some advice for after Whole 30. I honestly don't want to live a super restricted life after this, but I also want to use what I have learned. How did it go after your first 30 days? If anyone else wants to chime in that has done Whole 30 before please do! The more stories and advice the better!

    @Hope4Overcomers There is actually a deli by my work that serves breakfast. I assumed I wouldn't be able to eat anything they served because of the spices and oils they use, but they were able to make me plain potatoes and eggs. So I was so happy to know they could do that for the future!

    Hi everyone, 
    Just have to vent for a minute because I know you all will understand. I went to go make breakfast this morning, potatoes and eggs. I was using the Simply brand potatoes. I finished making my food and had a thought that I better look at the potatoes bag to make sure it was compliant. FYI- Simply brand potatoes have Dextrose in them! Why do potatoes have sugar in them!? I had to throw it away and had to leave for work. Just wanted to share a small frustration from my morning that almost tempted me to just cheat, but I didn’t. On day 8 and I’m honestly just ready for it to be day 30 already!
