    This is a tricky question. I'm someone who eats pretty darn close to the whole30 every single day, but I am not "on" a whole30. It took a while, but basically, I had to get to the point where I make my own decisions. I own them. I can't say: I don't eat that because Dallas and Melissa say I shouldn't. I say: I don't eat that because I don't want to (because I know it makes me feel like crap afterwards). This was an important distinction for me. Doing a true whole30 requires careful vigilance about minute quantities of ingredients that can feel a little out of balance. Now that I'm post-whole30, I'm willing to continue to be careful and read labels and avoid soy like the plague, for example, but I give a tiny spec of sugar a pass because I know my body can handle that quantity. I give baby red potatoes a pass when they appear on my plate at a restaurant. The way I'm eating just feels more natural and sustainable that way.
     
    Now, you may find post whole30 that you don't want to reintroduce anything ever. But even if you don't, you are now doing meadowlilly's plan, which just so happens to be exactly the same as the whole30. It's your choice, and you can continue to make that choice for as long as you want.
     
    Or another perspective, which I've seen play out on the boards: sometimes when people don't take these choices on as their own, they may do a whole30 or a whole60 or a whole100 or whatever and then once it is "done" the rebel takes over and they go right back to SAD. Not being "on" something means I'm never "done" I just make choices one by one as they present themselves, using my whole30 experiences to guide me.

    I just buy organic baby food pouches (with the twist tops) and carry them.  I run with two 22oz bottles that have little hand holds that have tiny pockets for one package each.  You can get the baby food at any major retailer - even my local Target carries them - but always watch the ingredients to ensure whole30 compliance.  My favorites are:  Ella's Kitchen (the "red one" and the "yellow one") and Plum Organics Pumpkin Banana.  Buy a whole bunch and see which ones you like - there are a ton of organic options out there!  They are a bit little larger than gu packets and only pack about half the cals, so it get's a little tricky, but totally doable...especially if you can drop a bag somewhere or out and back to your car.  I have my first ultra trail run on Saturday - Summer Cinco in San Antonio -  and plan on staying whole30 compliant.  I am on day 31, but don't want to make any changes/reintroductions until after the race.  I will let you know how it goes!

    UPDATE! I ran 20 this weekend. Pre-run meal was actually breakfast - egg/kale omelet and sweet potatoes. Did not take in another meal before (there wasn't time). Carried two 22-oz bottles - one with plain water, the other with coconut water. Carried two Ella's "Yellow Ones" and one Lara bar (with lots of backup sustenance in the car if necessary). Got tickled because I started the run (about 77 degrees, in the rain, on a muddy trail) and it was TWO HOURS before I looked down and thought, why haven't I hit the wall yet? THE MAGIC MUST HAVE HAPPENED. I ate one baby food pouch at 2 hours (preventative wall preventer, I guess) and then another 45 minutes later. My stomach was GROWLING about 30 minutes after that so I had the Lara bar - the tropical fruit one, I think. Total consumption was 44oz water, 22oz coconut water, 2 babyfood pouches (at 60cals/piece) and one Lara bar (210 cals). Post run - canned tuna with salsa and pumpkin. My recovery was flawless, minus some minor knee pain...but hardly any muscle soreness. Which I SHOULD HAVE HAD because the terrain was a nightmare. I would consider this my first "FEEL GOOD" workout. A little over 4 hours on my feet...

    This thread kicks booty! I laughed out loud more than once. (The "gets mad when sees paleo pancakes marked as Whole30 approved" was my favorite.)
    Maybe me and Melissa Joulwan need to make a video called "Sh*t Whole30 girls say."
