    I com if with mindy5... Dairy for each meal? Never do that. I know I had problem with milk and flip item before whole30. So can I just reintroduce cheese and yoghurt?
    Updated...
    Never mind found the answer...
    "Reminder: If you don’t miss a particular food or drink that you know makes you less healthy, don’t bother to reintroduce it. Not missing tofu, black beans, cottage cheese, or brown rice? With evidence pointing towards these foods making you less healthy, there’s no reason whatsoever to add them back into your diet. Only reintroduce those foods that you suspect you’ll really want to include back into your diet once in a while, and leave the rest happily behind. - See more at: http://whole30.com/step-two-finished/#sthash.niD63BhC.dpuf"

    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.

    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....

    Hutlifr reacted to Melissa Hartwig in UK "E Numbers" to avoid   
    While working on The Whole30 book edits for our UK publisher, I began researching E numbers that would rule a product out on the Whole30. (Boy, your labeling isn't anywhere near as easy to translate with all these codes!) I thought you might find these helpful.
     
    Note, I can't say for certain these are 100% of the E numbers to avoid. These are just the ones I researched with respect to specific off-plan ingredients. Feel free to post your own resources, or to request that I add to this list with other additives you discover in your own research.
     
    Here is a list of E numbers you'd want to avoid on the Whole30, as these codes refer to either carrageenan, sulfites, or MSG:
     
    E150b    Caustic sulphite caramel
    E150d    Sulphite ammonia caramel
    E220      Sulphur dioxide
    E221      Sodium sulphite
    E222      Sodium hydrogen sulphite
    E223      Sodium metabisulphite
    E224      Potassium metabisulphite
    E226      Calcium sulphite
    E227      Calcium hydrogen sulphite
    E228      Potassium hydrogen sulphite
    E407      Carrageenan
    E620      Glutamic acid
    E621      Monosodium glutamate
    E622      Monopotassium glutamate
    E623      Calcium diglutamate
    E624      Monoammonium glutamate
    E625      Magnesium diglutamate 
     
    Here is a list of E numbers you'd want to avoid on the Whole30, as these codes refer to added sweeteners (natural, artificial, or sugar alcohols):
     
    E420 Sorbitol - Sugar Alcohol
    E421 Mannitol - Sugar Alcohol
    E422 Glycerol - Sugar Alcohol
    E950 Acesulfame K - Artificial Sweetener
    E951 Aspartame - Artificial Sweetener
    E952 Cyclamate - Artificial Sweetener
    E953 Isomalt - Sugar Alcohol
    E954 Saccharin - Artificial Sweetener
    E955 Sucralose   - Artificial Sweetener
    E956 Alitame - Artificial Sweetener
    E957 Thaumatin - Natural Sweetener
    E958 Glycyrrhizin - Natural Sweetener
    E959 Neohesperidin DC - Artificial Sweetener
    E960 Stevioside - Natural Sweetener
    E961 Neotame - Artificial Sweetener
    E962 Aspartame-acesulfame Salt - Artificial Sweetener
    E965 Maltitol - Sugar Alcohol
    E966 Lactitol - Sugar Alcohol
    E967 Xylitol - Sugar Alcohol

    Thank you, Kirkor for feedback! Yep, I've decided to do another W30 in March. Will give me time to finish my eggplant parm. Since I'm going keto as well, I'll be posting in both forums. Why not?
     
    Carlaarend thank you for sharing about your dairy free experience!! I'm really getting how dairy can affect our bodies, esp. when dietary changes shift everything from hormones to nutrient absorption and inflammation, etc. 
     
    This is how I'm doing my keto - am open to feedback. I'm not being too scrutinizing with the carb/protein count. A while back I did make a basic spreadsheet to help me get started with a column for carbs, protein and fat for each meal and I've used this keto calculator to get a basic idea of healthy macronutrient ratio for my body.
    Then after recording a couple days of meals, I had a pretty good idea of what/how much to eat and now I just  wing it. Just keeping the carbs/protein low and fat high. Got a pretty good idea of foods high in fat, low in carb/protein. Mac nuts (daily) and almonds (every other day), lots of kale/zucchini/eggplant/collards, lots of bacon/sausage, chicken soup, occasional steak/lamb chop, lots of celery root and ghee, coconut oil, bone broth 
     
    I'm generally feeling better, losing weight/inches slowly because I can see it. I did weigh myself at my dad's and well, I was pleased with what I saw - but I'm not going there much because my brain attaches itself to weight and that's another reason why I like Whole30.
    That said, I have been going back and forth with energy - some days high, some days really low - last couple days really low. Fighting some bug - the flu is upon us again and my joints have been aching, head feels a bit like it's in a helmet, but it doesn't really ache. Feels fluish. I did have a day of splurging just three days ago at airport... and could also be feeling a bit of "carb flu" so taking that all into consideration. I'm drinking my bone broth and just taking it a day at a time. Mornings are better after a good sleep and I'm sleeping really well.
     
    Here's a GREAT site with all sorts of low carb and almost W30 compliant recipes. I'll only be sharing individual W30 compliant recipes in the March forum.

    Alcohol tastes like vinegar for me, or then is bitter if drink is sweet! Go figure how my taste buds were reset! However, I will use wine or cognac for cooking, it just adds so much flavor to meat and dishes in general. That's the only thing I actually miss when on a whole30, being able to use alcohol in my dishes and only dessert I would be willing to indulge, crêpes suzettes!

    I'm used to looking silly, it's all good.

     

    Ya, I want to give it at least another month. I'm going to keep keto while doing a soft reintro of soy, sugar, sulfites, and dairy ---- the "3 S's" so I don't have to watch labels as closely, and the dairy just for some keto variety.
    HOWEVER, I'm still on the way to being convinced that ketostyle whole30 is a lifelong plan. W30 for the body benefits, keto for the brain benefits.
    Even considering closing the door permanently on alcohol, which I hadn't really contemplated before this current iteration of W30. Not an alcoholic or anything, but just thinking about it from a health standpoint. Seems if you remove taste from the equation, then it just becomes about experiencing a state change. So I'm asking myself (a) why am I desiring a state change in the first place? and (b) can I get that state change in other ways? Allen Carr's book is supposed to be good.

    Gf chris. So if I want to eat the occasional yoghurt post 30, I need to eat one yoghurt for three meals during re-intro, eventhough I only want to eat one yoghurt every couple of days after re-intro? Same with cheese? I never eat cheese 3 times a day, it would constipate me for days!...

    "Yeah. I see slowly people are waking up. I think the unfortunate circumstance is that most people have to face a life-changing situation before they wake up, either it’s sickness or something happens to a loved one or who knows what it is, and then they have no choice because the brick wall is in front of them and they’re like “I got to do something. I got to break this wall apart so I can escape.” On the other hand, the reason why we’re in this mess in the first place is because of manipulation in marketing. I grew up thinking I need to drink milk. I need my calcium, it’s mandatory. Or, the whole-wheat bread, I’m going to lose all my nutrients if I don’t have them. I grew up as a child and your parents were groomed the same way, and it perpetuates to generation to generation to generation like a domino series, until we take out at least one or two generations that don’t abide by those standards and we transform the lineage of the domino series."

    I pretended there wasn't any set way for me to feel and no such thing as carb flu.   I pretended that I could complete any Whole 30 without whining and stay upbeat for my family.  I pretended that black coffee was great and compliant good fats were better than anything in any bakery...anywhere in the Universe.     I pretended in the very beginning...that Melissa helped me throw compliant items in my grocery cart.   If I circled the refined food aisles too many times,  I pretended that she led me out the door and back down the road.   I pretended all kinds of things and every one of them worked.  I even pretended that Kirkor was my brother from a different mother....because he makes me laugh and smile every day.    I've pretended nothing.   Nothing.    I believe all of it to be true.   It came true and I could not be happier eating fish, fats and vegetables.   They've made me feel like a stellar feller or that person I've always wanted to be...or she became me.      Kirkor.

    There are individuals who thrive on potatoes so it depends on your blood sugar chemistry.  There are nations that would starve without them.
    Fish.    The Bear, akin to The Dude Abides...can hunt, fish and make anything taste good.   We live off the grid but not in a Nut Hut.     
    We have wild game, Browns, Rainbow Trout and Salmon from AK.   We don't have access to squid, octopi and other exotic seafoods.  Cod and Halibut are becoming scarce.  I do eat wild Herring.  The trout are so gorgeous this time of year, they look/taste like salmon.
    You don't have to 'doctor' things up too much when it tastes so heavenly.  We kick it old school without alot of fuss.   Lemons, limes, herbs, spices, balsamic reductions - citrus or other variations.  Bear is gifted in the kitchen.  Everything he touches turns into a feast.
    He changes it up constantly, reworks all of his recipes that were handed down to him for generations.   We have ancient ways and modern tools.     My ancestors were experts with fish and wild game.    The Bear has a smoker that looks like a Fort Knox green safe.
    He has perfected his smoked recipes without any sugars for the family.  We also have grassfed beef and free range pork, chickens.     I can't write the recipes because they're all in Bear's brain.
     
    Fish is rocket fuel for the brain and bod.   There's not a factory bar on the planet that can come close to replicating what nature can do for you.     What fish does for the skin is off the hook, literally.

    I miss my original group.  Back in the day when I started, the tougher stance on scales, weight loss talk was tightened up.  It's understood and appreciated why it had to be that way.   I like that no-nonsense, no messin' around kind of kick in the rear-end stance.  Mr. Tom has been here a long time.   He's seen and heard it all.  Nothing surprises him....and yeah, I like his style and everything he writes.   GFChris...ditto.
