    @SchrodingersCat - what about chorizo? It looks like salami to me, is it not? Palacios' Chorizo has no sugar.

    @heb2014 thanks for sharing your experience. I had blood work done and an ultrasound where they looked at my whole abdomen- everything came back okay. At this point we suspect either I had a brief bug- or it was a flair up of my IBS due to going off the rails with my eating in December. I'm not sure why it hit when I was on day 2 of the Whole 30, maybe because like you said I changed habits so suddenly. In any case, I've decided to start working with a dietitian on a low-FODMAP diet to heal my gut. The diet is very, very strict in some ways- with limits on portions, times of day to eat and exact meal and snack plans. But it's not a whole 30, so I'm done with this plan, at least for a while.

    Bare Banana and Cinnamon chips

    @Patrick77 I think it's the mentality part, to break the habit of mindless eating. Kind of like I can slice a sweet potato, put salt and spices on and roast in my oven to make 'chips' but I can't buy sweet potato chips. @laura_juggles Not my fight, but your answer was kinda rude/snarky. Just saying.

    Blood tests results were mostly okay, one level related to pancreas was a little high but I'm not sure if that means anything. Had my ultrasound today and meeting with a dietitian tonight.

    @Brezymurph I hope it is going well for you. Onion- yeah I've been avoiding it for years but not to the extent I should. Usually I will chop it really big so I can get the flavor in the cooking, but then I pick them out. I should probably not cook with it at all. Garlic is worse for me, I LOVE garlic. I am still having intermittent issues, I went to Urgent Care yesterday and they told me to get my gallbladder checked out so I have a doctor appointment tomorrow. For now, I'm going to continue to try to eat healthy but I'm suspending my Whole 30 until/unless I can identify what the problem is.

    @Brezymurph thanks for the encouragement. Peppermint essential oil is a great idea. I have chronic stomach/intestinal illnesses and I'm afraid I might be having a flair up or even another infection Today was slightly better but not great, so if I'm not better by tomorrow I will go to Urgent Care. I confess I did eat off-plan today and will have to restart when I feel better. I am committed to staying sugar free and eating as little off plan as possible so that it's not so hard to get back on track. Trying to stay hydrated too. Breakfast: bone broth and a banana, half cup of coffee with nut pod Lunch: bone broth with non-compliant rice noodles (homemade ramen, basically. I needed something I knew would be gentle on my tummy) 'Snack': more bone broth (go figure) and a cup of coffee with nut pod Dinner: tomato sauce, turkey meatballs I meal planned tonight using a low-FODMAP plan and ordered grocery delivery of stuff I could count on to be safe. Have to go to the store this weekend to get meat and the rest of my groceries.

    My stomach is still hurting but not as bad as before. Very bloated. Dinner so far was 2 large mugs of chicken bone broth and a banana. I wish I could have yogurt or toast; I'm not sure what I can eat that is compliant and won't hurt my stomach.

    Bone Broth, Broth and Stock....

    I am allergic to corn so have been using potato starch for years. I find I need less of it than recipes usually call for- it makes things quite thick.

    TMI Warning About an hour after eating I started getting really intense stomach cramps- I assumed it was all the raw carrot on an empty stomach but it's been 4 hours and I'm still really hurting. It might be constipation- I will try some remedies once I get home. I waited until 2ish for lunch because of the pain then forced down a bunch of olives (for the oil) and a little leftover salmon and sweet potatoes. I'm also trying to drink a lot of water. I'm really tired and have that 3pm brain sludge- maybe a cup of black coffee would help both issues, lol.

    Day 2- tried to go to bed at 10, didn't fall asleep until close to midnight and slept poorly. Overslept a little and got up at 7:15. Normal morning nausea- made myself drink a glass of water before coffee with collagen and nut pod creamer. Forgot a morning meeting so packed a breakfast and just now eating at 10am. Carrot sticks, hard boiled eggs, guacamole, and a banana. Lunch will be leftover fish and sweet potato and olives.

    Managed not to nap today- very tired, intend to be in bed by 9:30 pm. Had dinner around 7:15, olives, sweet potato, and salmon with tomatoes and shallots. Having lots of cravings for sugar.

    Lunch at 2:30. Running late today. Had a second cup of coffee with nut pod creamer because of a headache. Tuna with home made mayo, pickles, paprika on romaine and grapes

    It's not too bad. Not really sweet which I miss from my regular creamer, but much better than plan coconut milk which is what I used last time around.

    So excited to start!! Is this wrong??

    @Ann have you gotten the text messages before? I'm thinking about signing up for the extra motivation but not sure if I will find them helpful. I know all the rules, just need to stick to them! @Gma Lopez It's awesome you are excited. I was not- but I figured out a motivation for myself. I'm going to set aside a certain $ amount for each day I stay compliant and if I make it 30 days I will let myself go shopping for new clothes at my favorite store (Talbots)! If I don't make it, no shopping. This is a good motivation for me because I normally don't let myself shop there because they are so expensive.
