    The crazy things people say

    A lady at a social function was raving about how refreshing her beverage was. She was going on about how she trys to be healthy and is really into the "whole foods thing". "This drink was healthy because it didn't have aspartame in it." I didn't have the heart to suggest that her bright pink, "sugar free", "calorie free", sweetened drink in a plastic bottle probably wasn't that healthy.
  2. Someone makes a comment about canned sardines and you immediately wonder what brand they use (was it packed with olive oil?), and you completely miss the fact that the term 'canned sardines' was a METAPHOR for a crowded situation.
  3. LOL Just found this thread - so funny! You know you've been W30 for awhile when you accidentally eat something non-compliant and immediately spit it out because you can taste the bad ingredient in question. I purchased a different brand of liver sausage and didn't check the label carefully (shameful, I know ). One bite and I could taste the sugar. So gross!

    Low blood sugar

    My non-expert opinion: Note: I am hypoglycemic but never have taken glucose tablets. I am on Day 19 and have been doing well. Only a couple of minor episodes, and then I just had a compliant snack and felt much better. My tips: Make sure you get enough fat and protein at each meal, and definitely start off with multiple meals until you feel well enough to switch to 3 meals over time. Even increase your fat portion above the meal template at first. Try adding sweet potatoes, fruit, or nuts with meals to help, and then try slowing eliminiating those over time and see how you feel. I generally feel better if I pair something with sugar (aka fruit) with protein. I also keep a little ziploc baggie of raw almonds in my purse in case I feel an episode coming on (or an attack of the sugar dragon). There are a number of old forum posts about hypoglycemia and lots of tips. Good luck!

    My DH has been somewhat interested in my W30 although he is not participating. Me: It has been tough getting used to not drinking soda, but it is worth it DH: Yeah ... I'm thinking of not drinking so much soda Me: That would be great! DH: Maybe I'll start drinking more milk Me: Okay ... DH: But could you buy the chocolate or strawberry syrup so it tastes better?
