    Sorry for the recent troubles. We've got things back up and running. You may see a few odd posts here and there but we're working to clear those up when we come across them. It's not a problem that you'll find now when posting and no more posts should magically vanish. Thank you for your patience!

    Hi all, If you click the "Follow" button at the top of the page here, you'll get notifications -- depending how they're set up in your User CP. To receive an email and an alert in the 'bell' drop down menu, ensure the first two columns are checked, like so: If you click "Follow" at the top of a forum, you'll receive notification of when new topics are posted in that forum, but you won't receive notification of replies to those topics until you follow them individually.

    Egg safety

    I sometimes keep my eggs on the counter too. I deduce that they are often sold on shelves in markets so I didn't even consider there would be a problem with that.

    How do I add a photo to my post?

    Sorry for the delay! Regarding the iPad, unfortunately Apple do not allow iPads or iPhones to upload photos (or any other kind of document) so you won't be able to upload a photo on those devices. Regarding other browsers, can you take a screen shot of what you see, or attach the image you wish to upload to this topic and I'll take a look for you. Thanks!

    I just wanted to update this topic. I've ordered from Abel & Cole and was thrilled with the meet quality. The difference in taste was amazing. I have a weekly veg box on order along with any meat that I buy for delivery. Couldn't be more satisfied!

    Welcome Maddie! You can totally do this and I look forward to reading about your progress!

    Food Portions/Eating too much

    The key is to make sure you get enough fat - and that is good quality satiating fat. Nuts are OK in moderation but they are easy to over-eat. You only need a handful to hit your meal limit for fat but I know from experience I can eat several handfuls without thinking about it. It's also OK to feel a little hungry. You don't have to feel 'full' all of the time. Work on enjoying the feeling of looking forward to your next meal. These are all things that have helped me, and I can be a voracious eater given a chance!

    Weight loss not happening

    Yes, absolutely. Our boy didn't sleep through until 18 months and even now he sometimes wakes in the night for the toilet or if he has a cold. I remember that for the first 18 months I felt like a zombie and struggled with nutrition and exercise.

    Fermented Cod Liver Oil

    I'll let one of the other guys give a more technical reply but I've been using that exact brand for a few months daily and I've found it to be really good. I take two caps a day. The usual rules of the Whole30 apply of course. Make sure you're eating a good variety of foods which is preferable to supplementation.

    Snack ideas

    Boiled eggs, carrot sticks, olives, slices of avocado. These are generally my go-to snacks.

    Fruit sugar (fructose)

    Good luck and great work in checking and questioning those labels!

    Weight loss not happening

    Focus on eating well and exercising will and the rest will follow in time. It can take a while to undo the damage years of 'SAD' eating causes. Also make sure that your stress, sleep and other lifestyle factors are improving. I know from parenting my four year old that 'not being stressed' and 'getting enough sleep' are sometimes incredibly hard goals to achieve!

    Fruit sugar (fructose)

    Unfortunately that's not allowed on the Whole30 plan. It's an added sugar made from fructose and not like fresh juiced fruit.

    I've set up a one-off order with Able & Cole. They are a little more expensive than the farm but they don't charge £9.99 for delivery so the order works out a little cheaper. If the meat is good (and I'm sure it is!) then I'll set-up a weekly meat order. While it's a bit more expensive than the supermarket, I'll happily pay a small extra for quality and for my health.

    Thanks CaveGirl! I'll check those sites out myself.
