    Day 12: stinky gas since I started

    Besides the great advice above, be sure you're drinking enough water: we recommend 1/2 an ounce of water per pound of body weight, daily.
  2. Many people have opted to separate corn out and test on its own day, so you could certainly do that.
  3. The 7 Day Meal Plan is not available as a downloadable item. It's only available in The Whole30 book.

    Don't over think this.

    Yes, those *sulfite* numbers are off limits on a Whole30. This listing is a helpful reference: whether to restart, read this and decide:

    Day 16 So very tired

    Where did you get that impression? We frequently recommend sweet potatoes, potatoes, and other carb-dense vegetables if people are feeling low energy. Whole30 is not intended to be low-carb.

    I wouldn't trust the cleanliness of any Chipotle right now, given all the press they've had lately. You might want to call the location where you ate and report your illness to management.

    Organic Caramel Color - Beef Broth

    Have you discovered M.F. Dulock in Somerville? Fabulous pastured raised meats from local farms. Besides meat, I get high quality beef bones from them for $4/lb. I use 3 lbs of bones to make a gallon of broth. Worth every penny.
  8. Ahh ... thanks for clarifying Susan! My misinterpretation - sorry!
  9. The shopping list Tina made is intended to be used for shopping for recipes in The Whole30 book's 7 day meal plan. All recipes in The Whole30 book are Whole30 compliant.
  10. Answered in this thread:
  11. It could be a cumulative effect on the bloat: you've been essentially eating some form of nuts at two meals a day, and salads twice a day. Also, the carbonated water is probably not doing you any favors. Don't use a hard boiled egg post WO: the post WO recommendation is protein and optional carby veg, no fat. The yolk is a fat. Egg whites would work here for your protein. Chicken and sweet potato is a popular post wo option. On getting more food in, if you switch from salads to 1-3 cups of cooked veggies, that may help, along with adding a post workout meal Other fats instead of nuts: olives, homemade mayo, sauces made from mayo or olive oil, coconut milk/oil are additional considerations. When you use an avocado, have at least 1/2 of it.
  12. In addition to Tom's on-point feedback, consider dropping the nuts, nut butters, almond meal, etc.. Nuts are to be used on a limited basis only on a Whole30, and can cause bloat for some. Same comment on raw greens/vegetables, in that they can also cause bloat. Try switching to all cooked veggies. How much water are you drinking daily? For you, we'd recommend at least 75 oz daily (1/2 oz water per pound of body weight) Side note: The plantain chips: did you make those or are they commercially prepared? (The latter is off limits on a Whole30, and the former is out if you made them and they were deep fried.)

    The crazy things people say

    I'm speechless ... How did you respond to that????

    Noticing More Acne

    You might try dropping the nuts completely and see if that helps. Are you drinking at least 1/2 oz of water per pound of body weight, daily? Also, are you having coconut milk? Some folks have had issues with coconut milk in BPA lined cans.

    Organic Caramel Color - Beef Broth

    Sorry, caramel color is non-compliant: it's sugar.
