    You most certainly can. Also remember that you can't always trust your hunger signals while things adjust. But if you just can't eat anymore saving it and eating it as a mini meal is a great option. Your body will adjust.

    I am! I think one more would tip the ship. I remember reading in something Melissa posted that Dallas can hold more eggs when he is very hungry though.

    We as moderators see a lot of confusion around here on what constitutes a serving of eggs when eggs are your primary protein source. We tell you as many as you can hold in your hand without dropping but I still don't think people actually try this. So I thought I'd post a visual for you folks. It would be fun if other people added their own pictures too. Try the experiment.

    Physibeth got a reaction from Am_S in Binge eating - how do I break this nasty cycle?   
     
    While dates, larabars, and nuts are all "compliant" foods they certainly are foods with no brakes for most people. Personally dates/figs and nuts are generally for meal preparation only. Larabars are something I keep around for real emergencies (like driving home from somewhere and I just MUST eat something NOW emergencies).
     
    Here are some questions for you:
    What are you feeling/needing when you reach for these foods? Are you hungry? Are you bored? Are you craving them?  
    How often do you eat starchy vegetables during the week?
    How active are you?
    Are you getting adequate sleep?
     
    I ask these questions because for me personally whole30/paleo style eating has mostly broken the terrible binge eating cycle I was on previous to finding this way of eating. However when I do have the need to "eat all the things" it is usually because I'm not dealing with something emotional, have not had adequate carbs to support my activity, or have not slept enough recently. I can almost always pin it back to one of those 3 things.
     
    So pinpoint what it is for you when you reach for these things and than formulate a plan to deal with it in a healthier way.

    Yes that is correct. Just to further clarify on day 4 legumes is the only non-Whole30 item you have. On day 7 alcohol is the only non-Whole30 item you have. In other words you don't have dairy (or legumes or alcohol) again (even if you are fine with it) until all your reintroductions are complete.

    Physibeth got a reaction from RandiW in Whole30 help - why can't I succeed?   
    Why do you want to do a W30? Sometimes reflecting on why we want something helps us to achieve something. It also appears you might be in a "fail" cycle because you are expecting to fail now. My husband is the spokesperson for the SAD diet so I get it but you have to want this for you.
     
    And remember...you only truly fail when you stop trying. Get back on the horse and take it one choice at a time.

    Before you give up maybe give this one a try. 
     
    The only time I've had it fail on me was when I had the blender on too high a setting. You want to use the lowest possible setting.

    The point is to test things as isolated from each other as possible. On the flip side if you have an extreme reaction to something you might want to add more than 2 days of compliance before you introduce something again to ensure you are feeling as good as you were when you started. You really want the best data possible so you can make well informed decisions in your post Whole30 world. Also for many that don't have immediate reactions there can be a build up over time reaction. Take me for example. I had no obvious physical issues to anything I introduced (except when I've accidentally had soy - makes me angry). However I know that if I were to put gluten back in my diet on a regular basis I would start feeling foggy in the afternoons again. I also have found out that eating non-gluten grains regularly makes me feel pudgy and sluggish after a while. Knowing these things helps me decide if something I might eat is worth it or not.

    Well you are allowed to have 2 servings of protein if you need it. This would be a question for the top dogs in all seriousness. I'd be scared I'd drop one of my very expensive pastured eggs trying to build a pyramid. And my floors are not really clean right now...and I would scoop it up and eat it anyway.

    Tom's advice is spot on. I would add that you can try and stay as close to Whole30 as possible while travelling if you desire and then do a Whole10 or so when you return and test the rest. This isn't ideal of course but it should still give you some usable info.

    As Chris noted in the post just before yours you CAN just get up, work out, and eat breakfast. We would RECOMMEND that you eat something with protein and fat before you workout (doesn't have to be a lot) for optimal results as research as shown most people have optimal hormone balance when they eat within an hour of waking.

    Physibeth got a reaction from liv.88 in Did I do post-workout meal(s) right?   
    First off make sure you eat something before your walk so you get food within an hour of waking (unless you literally jump out of bed walk and eat all within that first hour).
     
    Egg whites after the walk is good...you could probably add some sweet potato to that as well. After BODYCOMBAT (I'm familiar...I'm a Les Mills Instructor) you should eat lean protein and carbs again. The fried egg is not enough protein and more fat than a post workout meal should have. My trainer has me eat a full cup of egg whites with a half can of pureed sweet potato after my workouts. 
     
    How much time was there between your breakfast and doing combat? Were any of the roasted veggies starchy? I try to avoid having starchy vegetables and fruit within an hour of my workouts so I don't rely on the carbs for energy.
     
    What do your normal workout days look like? Frequency? Cardio to strength ratio? Make sure you don't overdo it on cardio which can add a lot of stress to your body.

    Instead of thinking about it as foods you can't eat, think about it as foods you are choosing not to eat.
     
    The power of words and attitude are incredible. Don't be a victim, don't be on a diet, make empowered choices about what you are putting in your body.
     
    When I stopped telling people "I can't" and started telling people "I don't want...I'm choosing not to" it rocked my world!
