  1. Reintroduction

    Great. I'm glad you enjoyed the Reintroduction Primer video. It's been around for a couple of years, I thought you might like it.
  2. Reintroduction Whole 30 Reintroduction Primer. ^^
  3. Life After Whole 30

  4. What is an InstantPot There's an instapot recall. Fire hazard.
  5. Dang Coconut chips

    These are toasted. It's similar to raw nuts vs. roasted and toasted coconut vs. raw-ish. They're going to be sweeter because they're condensed by the toasting process. You probably wouldn't overdo with raw coconut oil which is a better way to get fat into your meals.
  6. Whole30 Cooking Without Using the Oven

    A Whole 30 usually requires some cooking, no other way around it. Raw vege, could do but if you're washing them, why not throw them on the grill before or after the proteins. Google Grab-N-Go Whole 30's for other tips.
  7. Flavored drinking apple cider vinegars

    Have you tried Kombucha. Some think it tastes like vinegar, too. You could add ACV to your salad and your salad could have some berries or other fruit mixed in with the greens. Drinking fruit juices is not recommended even though a small amount of fruit juice is allowed for recipes. You can save these fruit drinks for post W30.

  9. Metamucil Dr Orders

    They make one that is completely free of all sugars and sweeteners. You can also get it the same way in capsule form, no sweeteners, no sugar.
  10. Nightshades and inflammation

    Not everyone has to walk a fine line with FODMAPS or AIP. Some choose to eat the same foods every day with no problems. The downside is missing out on nutrients that different foods provide. The greater the variety the greater bacterial diversity in your gut. Eating tomatoes, coleslaw and a protein at every meal may not heal your gut but on the other hand, fermented cabbage/foods could help. This isn't a weight loss diet but if coffee messes with your cortisol or blood sugar, leave it out. The guidelines cover the bases for the majority of people.
  11. Days 5-7 Lower Joint Pain

    Good one. Glad you already had an answer and an idea what to try next. For anyone else, most of these questions/answers can be found with a google search.
  12. Days 5-7 Lower Joint Pain

    You don't say where the joint pain is located but have you ever had a bout with gout?
  13. The W30 did help me see myself. I had a group leader who had a very good read on everyone in his group. He really cared, reached through the screen, tapped us on the shoulder and said, you've got to care about yourself. There was something extra special about that group, we all felt it and we still talk about it. I now know what that special factor was. It kept me going for a long, long time. It was a time to remember. There's much more I'd like to tell you but we simply haven't got the time. Oooo, and there was a special moderator who carried us through with that same quality and factor. Never going to forget either one of those men.
  14. No way would I judge anyone for completing 28 days or 128 days or 328 days. If I would point a finger at anyone, I would have 4 pointing back at myself. You have to do what's best for you. The greatest lesson that I've learned is that you have to declare a truce with your body. I've only completed one round of Whole 30 in 4 years. I won't do another one because I had to draw a line in the sand, declare that truce and completely surrender. That's when I turned my life around from a lifetime of binge eating and dieting and I had to reach out for some help.
  15. Continuing to Whole90

    I've completed one W90 and I did learn what I should do going forward. Many conduct consecutive Rounds of Whole 30's and some are doing W30 forevers. May your W90 be the ticket to food freedom and wellbeing.
  16. Continuing to Whole90

    Did you complete 5 consecutive Whole 30's?
  17. You choose, you decide if you want to start over. Only you would know if starting over would cause more angst over food. If so, you may want to take a break until you feel comfortable with the process. Whatever you choose, this is a judgment free zone.
  18. That's alot of worries only 5 days out but it is actually very common. Many have completed a Whole30 and fallen back into some variation of what you're doing. But it will level out as you think about your choices and consequences going forward. You didn't say how long your Whole 30 lasted but think of your very next meal as your 'reset'. Don't wait for another day or two to pass you by. Resume your position of being in charge. Turn around and go back to the Template, template, template. Follow through with a Reintro Phase and move forward thoughtfully and slowly.
  19. Starting over Hopefully, this link shows up this time.
  20. Starting over

    You can't see links in signatures on a mobile. If you can see links in Shannon's post up above, mine should work, too. Maybe my links aren't showing up above either. Ahhh, I am using a different device. Alrighty then, I think you'll do just fine. Click on Carb Curve? And What is Carb Curve? links and it should take you right there, it works on my device.
  21. Starting over

    Just click on the links above you have a good grasp what it's about. Are you trying to figure out your post-workout carb intake? There are many threads for that. If you ever get the book, you'll see how to plot the point that determines the approximate amount of carbs to eat after each high intensity exercise routine. Page 244, see the Hartwig's advice. They'll explain the smartest hormonal strategies and post work-out meals of protein. But once again, you can just google for post workout meals on the website.
  22. Starting over

    "What is the carb curve? I know that’s in the book but I haven’t been able to find it on the website." Carb Curve was talked about in the years gone by, like 2012-ish. Carb Curve? - Whole30 for athletes - Whole30 › The Whole30 Program › Whole30 for athletes Jul 19, 2012 - 8 posts - ‎8 authors I printed out the W9 ISWF meal planning guide and posted it on my fridge. I have a question about the recommendations for post work out meals, it says to add carbs based on " our Carb Curve" but I cannot find this referenced in the book or the website. Can someone point me in the right direction? Like 1.

  23. Forward Deployed

    Most chow halls offer four meals per day: breakfast, lunch, supper, and a midnight meal. Some are open 24 hours per day. Most dining facilities now give the choice of a full-blown meal with two or more entrees. For the health conscious, there is normally a heart-healthy menu, as well as a salad bar. Desserts are usually a choice of fruits, and more. For breakfast, you can choose anything between a small fruit cup to a full-fledged made-to-order omelet with all the side dishes. Take-out cartons are freely available in many chow halls. Some dining facilities even have drive-through windows. You can do the very best you can with what you've got. So don't let it rain on your parade or your excitement to share it with your comrades. You know the rules and recos.
