  1. The days I'm reintroducing, I'm only eating some of the food, and saving the rest for later. This is a BIG deal for me. I have been a notorious binge eater. This was the most apparent when I could have corn again. My biggest problem pre-W30 has been tortilla chips. I would eat at LEAST half a bad a night. Well, on Saturday I opened a whole bag with some salsa, sat down ready to just enjoy as much as I wanted "because I deserve it", and amazingly only ate 5-6 chips. They just weren't that great. I've NEVER eaten that few before and just put them away. The same happened when I got a la
  2. I've been reading Food Freedom Forever, and it's suggested to not skimp on reintroduced foods (except alcohol) to you can really tell if it affects you. That's why I had that much sugar. Thanks for the advice on trying the sugar again. In all honesty, I need to just finish the reintroduction and start food freedom, or I'm going to start losing it. It's not that I'm still addicted to the food, I'm just tired of the limitations of what I can eat. It's gotten very inconvenient (at home and going out), and I'm becoming grumpy. I've tried everything except for gluten grains, and so far th
  3. Tomorrow I'm reintroducing gluten grains. At first I was all excited: "YES!! BREAD!!" Then I realized that a LOT of gluten grains might have other non-compliant stuff in them. Any recommendations for gluten grains I can reintroduce without that other stuff? Thanks for any help!
  4. I didn't add caffeine intentionally. I wanted something to add sugar to and it was the only thing available at the time
  5. My first day I reintroduced sugar. I had about 3 tablespoons of sugar with coffee, honey roasted turkey lunch meat with no nitrates, and some compliant snack sausages with cane sugar added. Here's my first mistake. I've only had decaf coffee since starting Whole30, so the caffeine buzz I get wouldn't be mistaken for dragon blood. But on day one of reintro, two out of the three cups of coffee I had, although small, were caffeinated. Now it's two days after the sugar, and this morning I have a slight headache. Headaches/migraines are one of the m
  6. I'm hoping that after reintroduction I listen to my body better than I did before, and will have more control without the sugar addiction.
  7. Thanks! I got some honey smoked turkey breast without nitrates. I'll try fruit juice tonight.
  8. So, I made it and I'm very proud of myself. Here are some quick thoughts on how it went. I will probably come back to update as I remember more things about my first round. I only had a couple days of high energy. That is probably because I still have VERY bad sleep, exercise, and water drinking habits. Towards the second half of W30 I felt like I needed to focus my willpower on JUST W30 and not exercise, or I'd snap and quit. My head has felt much clearer, like I've been in a fog before W30. When I was on a good sleep schedule, I slept MUCH
  9. This morning I had my first added sugar. I just added white sugar to my decaf coffee and compliant almond milk. I wasn't DYING to have it, and I was still disappointed. I actually tasted kind of acidic, and about 5 minutes later I threw up in my mouth a little, and now I feel a little nauseous. Does anyone have any suggestions of anything else I can eat today for added sugar besides just adding it to coffee? Maybe nitrate free lunchmeat that has sugar? Maybe a soda that uses sugar and not corn syrup? Any suggestions are highly appreciated!
  10. I think you hit the nail on the head with the almonds. I don't think I do well with nuts in general. And the large increase in almond milk and almond butter synchs up with me feeling worse. I'll try to have more starchy veggies and see if that helps. Thanks!
  11. Except for my horrible migraine/headache on the second day of Whole30, which is to be expected, I've been pain free until today (R1D21). Now I have one. It's mild compared to the ones I normally get, but I'm trying to figure out if it's something I ate. In my descriptions, everything is whole30 safe, so if I mention hot dogs, assume it's compliant. Yesterday morning I had scrambled eggs, potatoes, and bacon. Also decaf coffee with almond milk. Lunch was a taco salad (beef with taco seasoning, salsa, and romaine), and also a shake made from almond milk, bananas, and frozen broccoli. F
  12. I'm on R1D20, and I can't stand the smell of cheese or bread anymore. If I walk into the break room at work, I now feel like I might throw up. Has this happened to any of you?
  13. Thanks so much!! I'll look into these and try something new.
  14. R1D18 My head feels clear, and I think I'm still sleeping a little better, but I'm really tired. It might be because of: 1: I have taken the "2 fruits a day" rule more seriously for the last few days. Before that I snacked on fruits a lot. 2: I stopped snacking. I finally got the book from the library, and somehow missed the no snacking rule when I researched Whole30 online. 3: I'm not eating very much. I'm so tired of the same food groups that I'm just not bothering to eat much. I'll skip lunch or just eat a very small dinner. The same thing happened to me when I tried the
