    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:

    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.
  6. Ahh ... thanks for clarifying Susan! My misinterpretation - sorry!
  7. 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.

    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.
  11. Everyone feels differently, physically and/or psychologically. For me, dairy made my stomach hurt and non-gluten grains and legumes made me gassy and bloated. I've been off gluten for years (diagnosed as gluten-sensitive). If I accidentally ingest gluten, I get diarrhea. Sugar: I didn't do an official reintro, but I infrequently have a bite or two of quality dark chocolate and I can tolerate that. I also significantly cut my wine consumption post-Whole30, because I feel my former amount of wine intake caused stomach bloat for me.
  12. Wow - that must have taken you a lot of time. To clarify, the 7 day meal plan does not call for plantain chips: it calls for pan-fried plantains. Here's a recipe that would work: ETA: the beef brisket recipe is on page 214, so you used the right recipe (there is a side note with it on how to make adjustments for the slow cooker).

    Let's talk (non-traditional) breakfasts

    Um ... recipe please??

    Help on energy drink pre-workout

    Yeah, sucralose is out - no sugars or sweeteners of any kind on a Whole30 (look at the ingredients list as your guide, vs nutritional information). We don't advocate energy drinks either. The recommended pre WO fuel is protein and fat. If eggs don't work for your protein option, try chicken or tuna. Use the macadamia nuts here as your fat. Post WO recommendation is lean protein and carb. Neither the macadamia nuts or hard-boiled egg work for this option (nuts are considered a fat, not protein, on a Whole30). Hard boiled egg doesn't work since the yolk in the egg counts as fat. Again, chicken or tuna and sweet potato are popular options.

    What A Serving of Eggs Looks Like

    Those five eggs looks like a stretch for your hand to me. Remember, it's the eggs you can hold without dropping them as the guideline. Start with eating at least 3 eggs for your protein serving, along with 1-3 cups of veggies and the appropriate amount of fat per the recommended meal template. If your meal doesn't keep you satiated for at least 4-5 hours, add an egg the next time around.
