    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    While this doesn't violate any of the rules it isn't your best choice for breakfast. We recommend that all of your meals fit the food template to get the best results from your experience. This means 1-2 palms of protein, 1-3 cups of veggies, and 1-2 servings of added fat. Also make sure that your almond milk doesn't contain carrageenan either. I've personally never found an almond milk in the store that didn't have this additive and usually just make my own when I want it.

    Have you seen this thread I posted? http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/20964-what-a-serving-of-eggs-looks-like/I'm 5'4" and have small hands and I'm holding 4 large eggs. Plus if I'm understanding your post correctly you are losing the white and just using the yolk so you are getting almost no protein in this. We don't recommend bulletproof coffee as a meal replacement...for best results you want to follow the meal planning template 3 meals a day 4-5 hours apart. It is ultimately up to you...but we are trying to help you get the best results from your Whole30.

    Physibeth reacted to GFChris in Weakness and exhaustion   
    I'm attempting to parse out what is Meal 1, Meal 2 and Meal 3 for you each day.  Is it 3 or 4 meals you're having? (Given you're nursing, you could certainly have 4 meals.)
     
    My main question is, are you satiated between meals?  Are your meals keeping you satisfied for 4-5 hours?

    Secondly, it's hard to tell portion sizes. When I see a word like "chicken pieces," that leads me to believe you might not be getting enough protein.  Are you getting in 1-2 palms of protein at every meal?  1-3 cups of veggies at each meal? (Sunday and Tuesday's meal 1 looks like it's missing veggies: don't let fruit push vegetables off your plate.)
     
    The erratic sleep is likely a huge culprit here that healthy food alone may not be able to fix.  Have you explored options for improving the quality and length of your sleep?

    I am 5'1 (on a good day) and I can hold up to 4 eggs in my hand, and my husband who is 5'6 can hold up to 5 in his hand. maybe try again? If you don't want to eat eggs everyday for breakfast, that is understandable, but do have more protein than the 1 egg in your coffee. It is important to follow the template guidelines to get the full benefit of doing the Whole30. If you choose not to follow the guidelines, then you are not doing a Whole30, you are doing something else.

    People pity me a lot. I get a lot of "I feel so bad for you, you can't have X"  My reply is always is: "Don't feel bad for me, I feel the best that I have ever felt in my life!  X makes me feel less than sublime, so why would I want it?"
     
    I used argue, discuss, engage, but now I find the best route of action is just to quietly eat the way I eat.  Do I feel judged or judgey at times?  Sure I do.  But it all comes down to something making me more healthy or less healthy.

    Friend bought some yogurt covered raisins and offered me some, then said "oh I'm sorry, I forgot, you don't eat dairy".  
    Then followed that with, "I eat them for the calcium from the yogurt."   
     
    Ingredients:  yogurt coating:  sugar, partially hydrogenated palm kernel oil, nonfat milk powder, yogurt powder (contains nonfat yogurt powder and sodium citrate), color added, lactic acid, lecithin (an emulsifier), and vanillin (an artificial flavor). Raisins:  tapioca dextrin, dextrose, whey powder, powdered sugar, confectioner's glaze. 
     
    Probably more calcium in the raisins alone!

    "YOU'RE PUTTING OIL ON YOUR FAT!????!!!" Spoken by my loving cousin as I put olive oil on my smoked ham, heh! I was so irritated and angry initially, then I remembered that not every store-bought-mayonnaise-loving,  bread worshiping person can understand this type of a meal plan. It is so easy to be offended by other people's judgement but I have to remember to have compassion and understanding because getting angry only does me harm, and it just does not matter what they think! Keep on keepin' on everybody, and let the haters hate.

    Physibeth reacted to Tom Denham in Confused about date syrup?   
    Let me elaborate.. a syrup made from dates is not acceptable during a Whole30 and a crappy idea at any time because sweetening your food with such a product erodes health. It does not make anything better. Making a puree with dates in order to sweeten your food is maybe 10 percent more acceptable than using a date syrup. You know where 10 percent better leaves you? Ninety percent away from where you belong if you want to be healthy.
     
    The person behind the dessert recipes thinks eating a frozen date helped her during her Whole30. This is not true. Feeding a sugar craving keeps the craving healthy and strong. The Whole30 approach to sugar cravings is to starve them unmercifully until they die. There is no room to negotiate with a sugar craving. They are cunning and powerful. Trying to placate a craving with just a little something has ended many Whole30s prematurely. Don't listen to the soft crowd. Listen to the old timers. Go cold turkey regarding sweetness. 
     
    Let me explain where it really is okay to use something to sweeten your food... when you are making pickles. Here is a good recipe for making quick, refrigerator pickles... Submerge your sliced cucumbers in a mixture of half apple cider vinegar and half apple juice plus spices like salt, garlic, peppercorns, etc and let soak for 12-24 hours. Making pickles is an acceptable time to use a sweetener during a Whole30. Seriously.

    Being the smart-a$$ that I am, I like to ask these people this question. "Have you priced a heart attack lately? How about a stroke? The daily rate in ICU?"
     
    Husband and I have had NO medical bills (other than preventative & exams) since 2008. We take no prescription medicines. I'm 62 and he's 71. A big part is genetic, I know, but IMO, lifestyle often trumps genes.
     
    YMMV
