    This thread is so funny. I've definitely gotten the "Are you preggo?" because I'm not drinking - after I just told these girlfriends I'm done with babies and just sold every baby item I owned....
     
    I also get a lot of "Wow, you're superwoman. I would never have the willpower to do that. You're so skinny now!!! I'm going to try this *enter crazy, nonsensical fad diet* to try and lose 15lbs"....umm...ok...or you could just do whole30.
     
    I also get a lot of "What do you ACTUALLY eat outside of chicken and salad?" and it's hard to explain ALL of the food options and how I rarely eat just a salad.

    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.

    That whole 'when you're fun again' thing really irks me... I'm accused of not being 'fun' all the time... I, actually, am a blast. the 'fun' that is being referred to is that the other person wants to indulge in whatever (cake, booze) and they don't want to feel judged for it (not that you're judging... that's all on them for how they feel).
    Also, LOL at the 'main part for the most part'. Uh, booze is one of the MAIN PARTS! LOL!

    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.

    Another question: Why are people more concerned about what we eat when we're eating healthy? If I showed up at work in the morning with McDonalds breakfast with a soda, had Taco Bell for lunch with a soda, and then pizza for dinner - complained of a headache the next day - not a single person would mention that maybe its due to the food that I ate the prior day. But if I eat Whole30 and then complain of a headache - people are concerned that I may be missing out on a nutrient or something.

    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.

    Ah, yes, the "the food is not allowed to touch" diet. Lose hundreds of pounds on this miracle diet by simply not letting any of your foods touch each other! 
     
    I think my all-time favorite (that I just heard again recently) is "How can you have eggs if you're not eating dairy?" Seriously, the number of people who firmly believe that eggs are dairy ... The latest person to say it to me explained, "Meat is when you eat an animal, and dairy is when you eat something that comes out of an animal. We learned that in school."

    I particularly loved this one: "Okay, so unprocessed foods... Does that mean you eat everything raw?"
     
    And: "Can you have salads or are you forced to eat everything separately?" (Just.... what?)
     
    Also recently: "So are you still not consuming any carbs?"

    I'm not sure why the order is different in the book and on the website, but it really doesn't matter what order you use, the important part is to go back to whole30 eating for at least two days between different categories of foods, more if you have a reaction that lingers for more than two days.
    The point of reintroducing foods is to help you decide what foods you want to include in your regular diet going forward. If you love cheese and are okay with not feeling great after you eat it, it may be worth it to you to have it sometimes. Whole30's position is that none of the foods that you've left out for the last 30 days are ever truly good for you, whether you have a noticeable reaction to them or not -- but it's also understood that food is not always simply fuel, that there are emotional and cultural influences on what we eat, and that we are not always going to only eat healthy stuff 100% of the time. If you haven't read it before, I suggest you look for the three part series on the whole30 blog titled, Dear Melissa: What do you eat? It's a good explanation of how she has discovered which foods are worth it to her and which aren't.

    You should be able to have fajitas without most of the toppings depending on the oil they use. A sizzling pan of fajita filling with some avocado if you can stand it is a pretty decent meal. Personally I don't usually do that on a Whole 30 because for me tacos/fajitas/etc. have to have dairy to be complete (sour cream mostly but cheese too). But it would probably be okay for you.

    My very overweight, very unhealthy, lives on fast food neighbor last night:
    I've learned that as long as you take a multi-vitamin, you can eat anything you want including fast food because the vitamin gives your body the means to deal with the toxins. The problems come when you eat the junk and DON"T take a multi-vitamin.
    I was dumbfounded.

    Alcohol makes adults fall asleep too and depending on how much they have, stay asleep longer.....but it's not a healthy option! Whatever you choose to do will be the absolute perfect decision because you are making it for you and your baby in your unique context.

    Yep. That's me most of the time. I've had more people comment on what I should/shouldn't be eating/doing/whatever since getting pregnant. It's really awkward when a male coworker who isn't married and has no children of his own comes up to you and starts talking about the side effects/risks of epidurals. Um. You don't have those parts to be able to talk to me about pushing a human out of mine. I didn't ask you. I will make the right decision for me with the help of my doctor and at the right time. I can say all I want at 13 weeks pregnant but the real answer will come when (literally) push comes to shove.
     
    I'll have to save your comments about the cereal for later...the next time someone tries to give me the spiel about how it's so great and will make your baby sleep longer (because while sleep is tempting, filling your child up with things they can't digest to get sleep sounds like a TERRIBLE thing to do). Supposedly the doctors here are pretty good about not trying to push you on it if you say absolutely not the first time they bring it up...yay.

    My mother asked me this morning if I was having my cholesterol checked...apparently now I'm not able to eat wheat my cholesterol must be soaring (I haven't told her about the ghee, the homemade Mayo or that I don't eat other grains either!)

    Ask them what people did before Heinz started pulverizing & fortifying rice and calling it "cereal" for babies? If someone has to "fortify" a product, perhaps we should just eat the things that come from nature already "fortified"?! Why do people think that pregnant women and their new children are community property? I've never been pregnant nor will I ever be but I always felt like that entitlement to comment would be something that would have me raging A Lot.

    How will your baby get enough nutrition/calcium/iron without rice cereal?
     
    Won't your baby have more allergies if you don't eat [x] while you're pregnant?
     
    Yep. Nope. Stop trying to make me feel like I'm somehow doing bad things to my future child by only eaten gluten-free grains once per day when I'm not on a Whole 30. Trust that I know what makes my body feel good and, therefore, make my baby feel good.

    I am not a nutritionist nor a doctor, so I am just throwing this out there. I am wondering if since our hormones are affected by the food we eat and hormones can influence acne breakouts, that if your hormones are still in flux and settling, if that is causing some of the breakouts. I am on day 8 and have been noticing a bit more of a breakout for the last couple days as well. I have decreased my nut consumption since starting W30 and don't eat dried fruit at all. I have added some coconut milk to my food, but hardly any in the grand scheme of things. Mine could also be due to the fact that my period is scheduled to show up in less than a week... but it seems a bit different this time. Like I said, not a doctor or nutritionist, just throwing a hypothesis out there based on my own experiences with dairy (which caused HORRID acne for me) and what I have been reading in ISWF.
     
    Stay positive - I am with you on the acne sucks train. Keep me posted on if you figure anything out.

    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.
