    When your six-year-old asks for a third serving of sweet potatoes at dinner and you tell him no more "snacks", if he's that hungry, then he can eat some steak.

    When you go to dump out and defrost the automatic ice container and realize this is a perfect chance to make hard boiled eggs so you have an ice bath to put them in.

    Weight update:
    12/17: 173.6
    1/1: began keto, began a Whole30
    2/2: 168.9
    3/9: 165.0, keto kontinues, also Whole30-"lite" (some dextrose in processed meat, some whey in protein powder, some artificial sweeteners in protein powder & BCAAs ... still no other dairy, alcohol, soy, grains, etc.)
    Been doing regular weight-training these past few weeks ... feels really good to have some structure! I'm calorie cycling based on Martin Berkhan's (www.leangains.com) principles (well, except for the carb part) and will probably do that through the third week in April, and then evaluate my weight, appearance, etc. Will probably raise calories for a week for a leptin reset.
    In other news, check out our Whole9 thread.

    I make "pancakes" about once per week.  Ingredients:  homemade nut butter (nuts, MCT oil), unsweetened applesauce and/or canned pumpkin, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla.  That's it.  They are each made with 1/4 cup of batter, so smaller than a restaurant pancake.  They are allowed to have 2 of these per day, when we have them.  
     
    And of course, it is not a meal without protein.  Those pancakes are next to eggs and/or meat -- always.  My kids learned all about protein, early on.
     
    We do not do dried fruit.  I used to make homemade "balls" / bars, until I looked up the sugar content of those nasty little dates and realized I was feeding my kids a sugar bomb.  If we are going to do that... we just call it what it is, and let them go for an ice cream treat or a piece of candy.  No illusions there.  
     
    I made more baked goods and treats when we first started eating Paleo.  Now they are very few and far between.  Sugar is sugar is sugar.

    Funny, I had my first episode the other day of a pediatrician telling me that my kids don't get enough calcium because they don't eat dairy.  And telling me that leafy green veggies, bone broth and almond milk were not going to give them enough calcium because they had poor uptake.

    No, I think dairy triggers my fibromyalgia so I was going to do dairy-free.  Why do you guys add the dairy back in?  For the fat?

    Anyone continuing on to February?  I just discovered your thread and I'd like to try a ketogenic paleo (dairy-free) February 2015 Whole30.  I'd love advice on what machine to get, what to monitor, and what to eat.

    I'm glad you started this topic. I'm doing no fruits, no nuts, no squash, no roots because they are all too irritating for my stomach. I am doing a lot of green veggies and I'm not counting carbs, so maybe I won't be in ketosis, but I am going to follow this thread. Your posts are very motivating!

    I'm starting off the 30 in an odd way: in a hotel 'til Friday, working nights. But I brought supplies: cutting boards, knife, George Foreman.

    For those new to the Ketostix, you'll get your best reading when you first wake up, as you're a little dehydrated. Drinking a lot of water can hide the results in some people. It's also an On/Off thing, you can't be in more or less ketosis, it's on or off. Some people try and go high purple, but you don't need it.
     
    If you want to measure it in your blood, you can get portable Glucose/Ketone meters that do that now (some are very expensive, check how much the strips are before you buy one). If you want to save your pennies, wait at least a week from the first ketosis measure on your Ketostix, Nutritional Ketosis takes quite a while to get into.
     
    Make sure you have a magnesium supplement in case of leg cramps If you get a weird toe-only cramp, that's potassium, have an avocado

    ...when you gauge the temperature in your house not by the thermostat, but by the state of the coconut oil in your pantry.
     
    "I think it's time to turn on the A/C...the coconut oil is nearly all liquid"

    This is so awesome. Just read all 14 pages. I'm getting ready to start my first Whole 30 on August 4th, and I feel like I'm joining some kind of exclusive club.
     
    When you're getting ready to start your first Whole 30 and you spend almost every waking moment looking for recipes, reading blogs, and making grocery lists.
