    First time Whole30 starting 9/15

    The absolute scientific manipulation of the consumer and the human physiology should make everyone angry! They know how our bodies are going to react so they create and sell us on things that are NOT good for us but which we have a very hard time refusing. Love that you named your sugar dragon. Down with Sharon!

    Starting in September

    Hi Carrie, all are welcome, glad to have you! Planning is absolutely the key for success! As for cutting veggies - sturdier veggies such as squash, peppers etc will keep for a week in a container in the fridge. I would cut the more tender ones closer to when you want to use them.

    Beyond Meat - Vegan Protein Help Needed

    Hi @Miss Fern - Welcome, glad to have you and yes, we definitely need to look at the positives in this weird situation!! Here's the official stance on doing Whole30 as a vegetarian/vegan.

    Mentos Sugar Free gum

    Morning! Well done, you two! So glad to hear that your wife reduced or eliminated medications! The only way to know if mentos sugar free gum bothers you or your sugar-cravings is to try it out and see how you feel. Watch for increased cravings or slow slippery slides towards other sweeter items. I would suggest that there is no real difference in your case for regular vs reduced sugar gum - they just replace the sugar with other chemicals, it'll still be quite sweet - so try both and see what works for you.

    Siete Queso

    This type of thing is technically compliant but would not meet the criteria to be Whole30 Approved.

    Mentally blah/ depressed

    I really like this! I think I would add "drink 1L water" before the going back to bed part. That way all your basic needs are met every day.

    First Date?

    I echo what @Jihanna said about picking the restaurant - especially on a first date. Your comfort and convenience are important and sometimes as women we just go along with whatever we're "told". I disagree about having the conversation about what you do and don't eat - you don't owe anyone an explanation, least of all a first date prospect. If it naturally comes up in the conversation then great, maybe he also avoids gluten or alcohol. But it's not up to you to design yourself to be the least troublesome, most amenable human being you can be. You do you. They either respect that or they don't. It's a good way to weed in or out.
  13. It sounds like you might have a bug. Having a headache is standard for most people in the first few days and depending on what their diet was like coming into the program, some mild nausea can be expected but this sounds more extreme - like a bug.

    Dietary Fiber - Dextrin

    Hi, you would have to look at the package and read the ingredients to determine. I'm not sure what this item is so cannot say.

    potassium bisulphite

    Thank you for noticing this! The labelling is incorrect on these and is being corrected - the online ingredients list has already been updated. Sorry for the trouble!
