    Psyching up for a December W30!

    Right back at you and LadyLisbette, too. Melissa summed it up a short time ago. 'It's not enough just to do the thing'. That's it in a nutshell and not the whole bushel. Unless you reframe everything about food and what it can do to you, dieting the pounds away by remote control will never ever be enough. You have to unravel and unwind yourself. Go back to the very beginning where you tripped and undo every tangled web. A healthy relationship with food begins in the kitchen but transformation happens in the mind.

    High Cholesterol!!!

    You seem to have a really good grasp of what's going on. SugarCube is correct. You've got to find someone you can work worth, hopefully Nurse Ratched has retired by now.

    Whole30 with toddlers.

    Could be colic/ food allergy, ear aches.... any number of things. Agreed. Take her to the doctor.
  4. Throw it in the trash. "When she first started making kombucha, someone told her that they were good for septic systems so she was flushing her old mushrooms down the toilet. A couple years later the septic tank guy came to empty out her tank, and he opened it up to stick the hose in to start draining it, but he couldn’t. He was totally baffled and had to get out his knife and hack away at the large, tannish, leathery thing that was floating at the top of the tank! She was quite sure what it was and she was quite sure she was not about to tell him! Can you imagine? A kombucha mushroom the size of a septic tank! If only someone in the sci-fi industry knew about SCOBYs!"
  5. Why not throw it down the toity?

    Depression and Sadness

    Hang onto your sweet potatoes. That's some amazing changes in only 2 weeks. I wouldn't use hairclips to hold onto them...

    I'm with Shannon. Ghee isn't my cuppa tea, either. I make my own clarifed butter with KerryGold.

    Are you new here? Welcome! You can think of orange juice, grape juice as something used to bring a person out of diabetic shock. The juice sugar shot is a jolt to the bloodstream.

    Where is the guidance on reintroducing Alcohol?

    Thanks for bumping this thread. It's a good one. "You probably don't want to have a shot of whiskey at breakfast, a glass of scotch at lunch, and a glass of wine with dinner unless your lifestyle is friendly to drinking all day." Hi-larious. I do miss these kind of briefers. Short and straight to the heart of the matter. Check out the Booze Edition, too. Written by Melissa.

    Type 1 Diabetes

    I already put the link up there, all they have to do is click on it. They would have to read through every post of TravelPhotoWriter and I just happen to remember where they are. So I put the best in one place because not too many people think about or travel back to 2012.

    Type 1 Diabetes

    More.... from TravelPhotoWriter As a Type 1 diabetic (31 years) who is more healthy by all tests than most every "normal" person I know, I am a living test-case of any argument about impact on blood sugar, as I completely regulate my blood sugar manually So I'm just giving input into your pondering from the point of view of rise/fall of blood sugar... White sugar, brown sugar, coconut sugar, maple syrup & honey, raw or not, all create a quick spike in glucose, nothing "slow" or "low" carb about any of them. Agave actually is much less of a spike than the others listed; I absolutely need less insulin to process agave than the others I listed. It seems to me too that you got a bit "spanked," but I'm sure it's meant well. EVERYONE ANYWHERE is merely expressing an opinion based on what is working for them at this time in their life and what keeps them between the rails they set for themselves; just think - all vegans feel very, very sad for all "mislead" Paleos! (Kinda gets to be like religions clashing, eh? ) But none of us are YOU. My understanding & DEEPEST POINT OF RESPECT for the actual founders of W30 is that ultimately they suggest, once "clean", be your own experiment to find out what works for YOU & what doesn't. I personally like black coffee.. ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY!! I'm loving mine!

    Type 1 Diabetes

    Google Whole 30 Type 1 Diabetes. You'll find many threads. One of the best is written by Travel Photo Writer. It made a big impact on me 3 years ago. TravelPhotoWriter on 16 June 2014 - 07:48 PM I'm a Type 1 Diabetic for 31 years. For EVERYONE, bread/starches, lactose (dairy sugars), white potatoes, corn, etc increases blood sugar. The only items that keep my glucose even-keeled are Proteins (meat), low-starch veggies (the ones approved on W30), healthy fats, and sparing low-sugar fruits (like berries, NOT like mangos or bananas). No amount of avoiding these items temporarily will have them break down any differently when they are consumed. If you want great #s to continue, your great habits need to continue. Personally, I "triage" things that up my glucose. Example: mashed potatoes are absolutely NOT worth it to me, so I don't eat them, EVER. The book It Starts With Food (a.k.a. ISWF) goes into some pretty eye-opening description of what dairy does to blood sugar! Yikes, I didn't know when I was slamming quarts of it the years before my diagnosis.... No amount of avoiding these items temporarily will have them break down any differently when they are consumed. If you want great #s to continue, your great habits need to continue.
