  1. I applause you for being straightforward with yourself and starting over! YOU CAN DO THIS!! I hope you have amazing camping trip and an easier time staying dedicated after this little bump. I honestly think you'll feel even better once you get to the new Day 30 now, since it'll pretty much be 44 days of clean! I really liked Jihanna's view of a Whole45.
  2. Hmm, it was a review on Amazon about a book that came out in 2009 by Melissa..? Maybe their comment was outdated haha! Good to know, I'm definitely gonna look into getting it!
  3. This was so helpful, thanks! Something online said that some of the information is outdated because the Food Freedom Forever book came out years ago. But it did say that the rest is still very great for helping people gain food freedom and a better relationship with food. They weren't dogging the book at all, just saying some of the info we know now isn't the most accurate. So, I wasn't sure if it was worth it to get the book or not... it sounds like it actually might be.
  4. Wow, you brought up a great topic. I had to ask for clarification on the whole not-looking-at-foods-as-good-or-bad topic. I stopped reading the Whole30 book once I got to the reintroduction chapter because I didn't feel like it had to do with me in that moment, being a whole month away from the reintroduction phase. I'd rather wait until I get closer to the end (I'm on Day 16). I think I'll have a more confident view of this topic once I read it. I have a strong feeling it'll be a game changer for me, since one of my issues before starting whole30 was feeling guilty over the food choices I
  5. Here's the link: The flexibound is just like a normal paperback book and 13ish dollars, which I think is worth it. I don't know why the "paperback" version is like 10$ more. And I agree on how it can get dull, I think it might because I'm not really a journal person to begin with so forcing myself to write in a journal feels a bit tedious to me. BUT it's a good way for me to self reflect and it has you rate your energy for the day
  6. It is so much more fun interacting with others! I found myself getting bored of writing in the Day by Day Guide, because it felt like I was just forcing myself to write something in the same format every day.. I appreciate the book though because it has daily tips and hacks, what's "normal" to feel physically/mentally during that period of the timeline, "extra credit" goals for the day, etc. But the writing part got dull to just do on its own. So I like doing both. Even though you've already started the program, I think you might find the guide helpful, too!
  7. Hey, Emma! I didn't get a chance to read all of the posts because there are a lot by now, but I read a few random ones and I appreciate your honestly with not only us but yourself- pointing out that you "could just not write it on the forum" is so true but it would only be damaging to our own selves. My goal is to be as honest as I can throughout this process and not feel ashamed of things that many of us are dealing with, so thank you for being so open. By the way, mustard is compliant! Unless there's other additives obviously, but the brands I already had didn't have additives so that sh
