  1. Many people have opted to separate corn out and test on its own day, so you could certainly do that.
  2. 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.
  5. Ahh ... thanks for clarifying Susan! My misinterpretation - sorry!
  6. 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.
  9. 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.
  13. Yes, do a separate reintro day for alcohol. Your plan is prudent: your day 1 of reintro will be alcohol at the birthday party, and yes, nothing with wheat so you're not testing gluten at the same time. I would also recommend not to go overboard; a couple drinks, as you stated, would work. The next day, I would then remove alcohol and go back to 100% Whole30 eating for two days, and then continue with reintros per the reintro schedule.

    Plate Size

    Might be a little over-thinking going on. <grin> This might make things easier: use 1-2 palms of protein, 1-3 cups of veggies, and the appropriate amount of compliant fat, per the Whole30 meal template, at each meal.

    Coconut Flakes

    Sorry, some tough love, this is in the Paleo treat realm and therefore off-limits during a Whole30.
