  1. Yes, if they're just fruit, they are fine. If they're prepared in some way, you'd need to check other ingredients.
  2. I don't know that there are any compatible cough drops or throat lozenges, they're all likely to have some kind of sweetener. There's a tea, Throat Coat Tea, that may help if he has a sore throat. Whatever allergy medicine he usually takes is fine to continue taking. If this is unusual for him or worse than his usual seasonal allergies, it might be worth having him speak to a doctor about it.
  3. They have multiple products, so you'd need to check the label for the particular one you're wanting to take, but the ones I looked at had rice bran and cane syrup and corn fiber, so those would definitely not be Whole30 compatible.
  4. It's impossible for us to guess what may be causing the allergy symptoms. If there's something you didn't really eat before and are now eating a lot of, that could be a first place to look. You can take over the counter or prescription meds if you need to, and may want to speak to your doctor if your symptoms are severe enough that they're interfering with your daily life, or if they don't go away. The fact that you are losing weight so quickly is worrying. Be sure that you are eating enough food. Each meal should include a palm-sized portion or two of protein (or if eggs are your only pr
  5. If the ingredients are just water and coconut, it's fine. The nutrition info that lists grams of sugar has to list naturally occurring sugars, so any food with fruit is going to show some grams of sugar on the label, all Whole30 is concerned about is the actual ingredients.
  6. I'm guessing your email was similar to this article -- it says Chipotle has changed the oil they cook in to sunflower oil, which is Whole30 compatible. It sounds like the other sources you found might have had old information.
  7. This doesn't seem like normal side effects of diet changes. You might want to talk to your doctor.
  8. Yes, you can do reintroduction in any order. The important thing is to do just one type of food, and wait at least two days before reintroducing the next food, or longer if you're experiencing any symptoms that last longer than that. Also, even if beans are not a major part of your diet, you may want to reintro soy and peanuts at some point as they both show up in unexpected foods.
  9. Here's a few ideas:
  10. If you check the ingredients Here it actually says wheat. Idk how they're processing it to remove gluten, but they flat out state they're using wheat in the product. Aside from that, the barley and malt would make it not Whole30 compatible anyway.
  11. Yes, naturally occurring sulfites are fine.
  12. So the latest pancake rule info is here: And there's this article about Kite Hill products that explains more about the cheese thing: I'm not really sure I can add anything more to those explanations.
  13. The recommendation is if you will eat two types of animal-based protein -- like at least one type of fish plus eggs -- you should do the original program. If you don't eat two types of animal-based protein, then the plant-based Whole30 may be the better option. Here is the article that explains more:
  14. I'm not sure exactly how it works, but I assume the chat is available when the video is live. It looks like today's must've been around 12 pm central, so maybe check back around then? Or subscribe to the YouTube channel and turn on notifications and you should get a notification when it starts.
  15. I think you just go to the Youtube channel here and click subscribe to be notified. @ladyshannyis that correct?
  16. Here's the link to their official Whole30 page. If the ones you're seeing in your local area don't have the Whole30 label, but the ingredients are Whole30 compatible, you can still have them.
  17. This sounds like something you may want to speak to a doctor about. While it's pretty normal to be tired during the first few days of a Whole30, the nausea and lightheaded feeling aren't really. I hope you feel better soon.
  18. I didn't check all the varieties but the ones I checked still had barley and wheat so they wouldn't be Whole30 compatible.
  19. It's not really a meal plan, so maybe it's not what you're thinking if, but the closest thing I've seen is on this page, part way down the page is a link to plant-based Whole30 options from Daily Harvest.
  20. Headaches are not unheard of early in a Whole30, so it might be something that resolves itself in a few more days, but if you know you have some blood sugar issues it might be worth checking in with your doctor to see if there's anything they recommend. If you think it would be helpful, you could have a small snack before bed to see if that makes a difference.
  21. All of these ingredients are compatible with Whole30 rules. This is what the Can I Have Guide says about yogurt: Coconut milk yogurt: Read your labels Most coconut milk yogurt contains added sugar, but there are some plain varieties that would be considered Whole30-compatible, and a source of natural probiotics. Tip: While you technically could turn this into a breakfast bowl with dried fruit and shredded coconut, we find people fare much better when they eat a protein-rich breakfast—and these yogurt alternatives lack the protein content of true dairy. Instead, serve your yo
