    Day 3 For a Newbie

    I heard about Whole 30 when Melissa H. appeared on my favorite Saturday morning cooking show. I'm not sure what it was but I was immediately intrigued enough to look into the idea of finding out if it was with me. I wound up on Amazon, using the "look inside" function to read excerpts of the book. Actually, all available excerpts fo the book. Sold! I got my copy (and the Day by Day daily guide) just a couple days later, and started a week long plan and preparation phase. I'm 61, retired for a year, with health issues. My biggest desire is to avoid going on blood pressure medication when I see my physician next. (Shedding some of this excess girth would feel great as well.) Being that it is so early in the program for me, I don't want to start throwing accolades about, but, I have to say, that I'm loving this program and the book itself thoroughly. My kitchen counters are filled with baskets of fresh fruits and vegetables, and , oh the recipes! I am having a blast cooking! My husband is enjoying the dinners I've been preparing and I'm making my own condiments! At this moment I have two crockpots going in my kitchen and the whole house smells divine. I know there will be tough days ahead, but this has been a blast so far! Has anyone else who may reading this had this much fun only three days into their Whole 30? Am I going to hit a brick wall soon?

    Bacon! Please Help

    So, W30 Comrades, if my label (bacon or other) lists sugars (i.e. "3g)" or sugar (i.e. "0g") under "Nutrition Facts", but not under the "Ingredients" am I good? I am on Day 2 (how do you do) and having trouble with this label thing. I've checked all my reference material and searched this site but can 't seem to find a clear guide. A diagram would be nice even. Am I dense? Can someone help me?
