    Juice06870 got a reaction from Sarasaurus in Sara's Whole30   
    I am right there with you.  I feel like it took a good 2, or more likely 3 weeks for my body to become fat adapted on my first Whole30.  I am right on day 20 now, so I hope it's the same or better now (it's almost 5 years later now, so I'm sure my body doesn't fire up like it used to).   But I felt the same as you, after it was finished, I stuck to the general template for quite a while and I got even leaner and my energy was excellent.  I started taking it for granted and cheated or splurged a lot more often as the years went by until this past year when i was completely off of the wagon.  I'm hoping I can get back on track and lean back out...and then not fall into the lackadaisical trap again.

    How have you been feeling since you started?   Better, worse, same? 
    I know what you mean about missing how you felt when you were on the post Whole30 meal regimen.  I mentioned it on my log, but aside from the fact that I need to drop some weight that has quickly latched onto me, I really want to get back to feeling as great as I did on a daily basis when I was eating a lot cleaner and not drinking as much.  I'm on day 18 now, so hopefully I will be there soon.  Good luck.

    If you want your body to become adapted to burning fat for fuel, it is absolutely important to avoid snacking; it allows hormones time to adjust and when there is no sugar present (such as you're getting from that afternoon piece of fruit) the body will turn to fat as its fuel source. If you start making a habit of reading through these forums daily, you will find one of the things the moderators are constantly telling people is to make sure your meals keep you full for 4-5 hours, and if you feel the need to snack, snack on a mini meal of protein, veg, and fat. By dumping sugar, even in the form of fruit, into your body between meals, you're not getting the full benefit of the transition to fat burning and you're getting a spike in blood sugar. Not great. You're still doing a whole 30 as all your foods are compliant, but why not get the most out of it?
    Also, weight goes up and down, and many people experience what seems to be an increase in weight/bloating part way through their whole30. Hang in there, give the program the full 30 days! And give yourself a big pat on the back for making this commitment and doing something good for yourself! I will be interested to hear how things progress for you.

    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.

    I pour it on top of my tuna when i eat it out of the can after my gym workouts.  it's one of the only things that helps me choke the tuna down besides home made mayo.  but i don't use the mayo after workout due to wanting to limit the fat intake after the workout.

    Maybe a dumb question, but do you get the problem with the grease splattering everywhere like you would if you cooked it in a pan?  If not, I will have to give it a try, because i spend a good portion of every morning wiping up bacon splatter on the stove top.
