    Britishgal got a reaction from KBlack in December 27th Start Date   
    I’m starting another round tomorrow too...I gave no idea how many I’ve done plus I stick to it quite closely normally (except dairy...I always add that back!) but I have been really ill the last half of this year (I have arthritis) and everything has fallen by the wayside, I’ve put in a couple of stone, my skin is horribly dry and I’m exhausted all the time.
    So it’s time I think.
    i want to start reintroducing exercise slowly too (ballet barre/floor exercises are my fav)as it’s been a while but now I have my drs permission!
     
    I’m looking forward to not being so tired...and not eating all the rubbish I’ve fallen back into! Plus my 9 year old is doing it with me this time outside of school hours  and the days he’s at his dad’s...I think he’s worried about me

    I always add a fat to my meals...be it eggs, steak or salmon. Maybe because I'm obsessed with homemade mayo Honestly though I feel better health wise and fuller for longer with more fat in my diet

    When I first started whole30 I was convinced from reading that I had to have coconut oil and other things. And you don't really. My jar of coconut oil is now used for my face because I never liked using it to cook. I have always cooked with olive oil and butter so clarifying butter and carrying on with my oil made more sense.
    Look at what you cook now and base your cooking on those with whole30 twists. It'll be simpler, cheaper and as you know you like those types of foods you are far more likely to stick to it
    Oh and I second jmcbn on the no prepackaging...I am slightly obsessed with reducing waste so it kills two birds with one stone

    My mother asked me this morning if I was having my cholesterol checked...apparently now I'm not able to eat wheat my cholesterol must be soaring (I haven't told her about the ghee, the homemade Mayo or that I don't eat other grains either!)
    As if I don't have enough health wise to worry about just how...and no, I'm not having it checked...

    My mother told me this afternoon that food allergies are just a fashionable thing to have, like autism
    I have aspergers...and a wheat allergy.

    When you are a actually praying (to a god you don't even believe in) that waitrose will have their organic type of tinned coconut cream and milk in tomorrow...because they have been out of stock for 2 weeks and everywhere else's have unmentionables in the tin

    I've never seen tuna with soy in it, ever. Tinned tuna here is tuna and either water, water and salt (brine) or oil. Even the really cheapo ranges. I panicked when reading about tuna on the forums for the first time so just wanted to put it out there for anyone new who is from the UK.

    -when your 6 year old announces he wants to buy cucumber instead of biscuits
    -when the same 6 year old tells a random old lady in the shop that his mama makes the best mayonnaise and ketchup
    -when you never seem to have no washing up pile and you dearly wish you had a dishwasher!
    -when you wish your fridge had more than just one large veg drawer...
    -when you nip out for a couple of things and come back with this:

    In contrast to whole30...where yesterday when I'd planned on introducing goats dairy I craved butternut squash chips (fries?) and homemade mayo so ate them with steak and put it off

    I have a family reunion next summer.   A relative asked me if I'll be showing off..not eating what they do.   Really?  Really?   
    I have relatives who prefer it when everyone is eating unhealthy foods. It enables their habits.
