    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.

    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.
     
    Context - I'm 5'4" female and these are large eggs.

    Can you build a pyramid with the eggs?

    um, just in case people are confused reading this: if you didn't get fermentation you would not get the health benefits of kombucha or the flavor (AND it might get moldy). I suspect your batch fermented just fine...
     
    Kombucha doesn't need to have bubbles to be "correct" or truly fermented. Although adding sweeter juice or fruit might help you get more bubbles, bubbles can also be encouraged by tightly sealing bottles (less space at the top, more air tight*), shaking bottles daily, etc.
     
    *caution: these same steps also increase risk of explosions and broken bottles.

    I think starting with eggs and cashews would be a good jumping off point. Give yourself 3 full days off of them before you evaluate.  Then, if that doesn't solve the problem, move on from there

    Hi all!
    Just to be clear, do you mind confirming? It is okay to use sugar to actually make home made Kombucha, but not okay to add any sugar AFTER the fermentation process? I am starting my first batch and I want to make sure I am following the rules to a tee!

    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.

    I would consider drinking a cup of bone broth a beverage or supplement not a snack.

    This is one of those cases where you can't believe everything you read on the interwebs. Chemistry is complicated and while some manufactured foods and natural foods share similar chemical compounds, they don't all interact with our bodies in the same way.  For the purposes of Whole30, simply avoid "MSG"  - no outside reading material necessary

    Yes, ascorbic acid and citric acid are fine. The only preservatives/additives you have to watch out for are Carageenan (often used to thicken things and give them a creamy texture like ice cream, almond, soy, and coconut milk, etc) MSG (used as a flavor booster in savory things) and Sulfites, along with any other non-compliant ingredients (dairy, sugar, grains, legumes) of course.
     
    Go for canned items that are minimally processed and have as short an ingredient list as possible.

    Mine seem to get worse when I'm doing a Whole30, too. But then they get way, way better as long as I keep my diet strict paleo. Then I slowly start allowing more and more sugar or dairy into my diet and they slowly get worse again. Then I have to do another Whole30. It sucks, but is also a pretty steady pattern for me and I logically know what I need to do to avoid it.

    More carbs is the only way I can keep my cycle on track when Whole30-ing.  I have to make an effort to eat lots of starchy carbs (and find I have to add in a bit of rice to keep my cycle on track, too) or it takes a long hiatus.  I know there are a lot of folks that will tell you the Whole30 isn't low carb, but that's how I tend to eat when I'm Whole30-ing so I really have to try to increase those carbs.

    Searching the "Can I have guide" it looks like Melissa posted a comment yesterday stating that natural flavors are not technically off program. However natural flavors can mean a lot of things so you may want to consider what it means to you personally in regards to your W30. In other words this is a personal preference area as far as I can tell. 
     
    And I've had that tea...it's very good!

    I think it might be able to be summed up in accordance with one of the main points in the book - food will either make you healthier or it will make you unhealthier.
     
    In the case of Kombucha, you are getting the benefit of the antioxidants, probiotics and vitamins.  Thus it makes you healthier.  
     
    On the other hand, there are no such health benefits from a beer, a shot or a glass of wine, which is why they are restricted.
