    Michelle Joy got a reaction from Jihanna in Scheduled Medical Check Up   
    Thank you.  I'll fill them in and not peek.  BTW, I had some pre- appointment fasting bloodwork today.  I was delayed by a floating bridge opening and a long line at the phlebotomist's.  I didn't Get to eat until after noon!  AT any rate, and a NSV ensued.  I was never a breakfast person but have been resolute to change that during my Whole 30 adventure.  I find that I am so much more in tune with my system!  I recognized my feelings of lethargy and anxiety due to the low blood sugar I was experiencing.  This is a victory for me!

    Michelle Joy got a reaction from WornOutWallaby in 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?

    All you're worried about is the ingredients list. As long as all the ingredients are okay, then it is okay to have.
    Many foods, like any kind of fruit or vegetable, will have naturally occurring sugars, and those are fine -- but they mean ever can of tomatoes you look at will list grams of sugar in the nutrition info, even if there's no sugar in the ingredients. That's fine.
    Bacon tends to go the other way, it'll show 0 grams in the nutrition info, but the ingredients list will include sugar. That is not okay to have.
