    It replicates ice cream.. No laughing playing or having any ice cream type things for  30 days.

    wow!! That is amazing.  I don't think I ever even assumed more than 2 eggs is "normal".  BUT.... I have a HUGE goal to stick to the 3 meals a day format, which may involve eating more per meal to avoid snacking.  
     
    I wish this same visual could be created with other forms of meat, like chicken thighs (bone-in) and whatnot to know what your portion should be!! I feel the palm-size method isn't very clear for something like chicken wings/thighs/ribs... stuff like that.  
     
    Thanks for sharing the egg trick!

    I feel like the book is so misleading because the recipe for scrambled eggs is 4 eggs and supposedly serves 2!!!

    Why do you 'have to eat' sugar?

    Hi!  I have a 6 year old and a 2 year old who are on Day 19 with me and my husband.  I think it really helped in the 2 weeks leading up to our Whole 30, we discussed things as we prepared and cleaned all the non-compliant foods out of our house.  They went thru the "Kill All The Things" phase about 5 or 6 days in, but besides that they have been fantastic sports!  I found their appetites increased dramatically, and their acceptance of new veggies and other foods has been great.  
    I think it would work for your kids if it was something your whole family was doing.  If my husband was eating cake at the office, it might be tougher for my 6 year old to forgo cupcakes at school parties. 
    Also, if there's no PB&J ingredients in the house, there won't be sandwiches right?
    My 2 year old is gradually eating more and different veggies, so I understand the "2 veggies" only thing.  They get over it.  She also likes her veggies with fruit in baby food pouches when we're out.
     
    Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

    We have been having "turkey dinner" for breakfast this week. I cooked a turkey for Canadian Thanksgiving and then put half the meat in a large baking dish, drowned it in the turkey drippings and then froze it.  Then, this week I defrosted and heated the whole thing up (no dry turkey, it reheated in a pool of its drippings) and we've been having turkey, mashed potatoes and roasted brussel sprouts for breakfast all week.  It's been quite delightful!
