    This appears to be some sort of "weight loss supplement" which, while compliant ingredient-wise, would not be in keeping with the spirit of the program.
     
    Why do you want to take this?

    Here's the Wikipedia article on konjac: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konjac It's eaten as a food in Japanese cuisine in particular. It's used in weight loss supplements because it is high in fiber and low in calories (so you poop more and feel fuller I guess?).
     
    I agree with LadyShanny that there is nothing specifically in the supplement that would make it non-compliant. However, using this product would go against the principles of Whole30 about understanding how your body works and what it needs nutritionally in order to feel full.

    If you're hungry, eat. Ensuring you have enough protein, fat, and vegetables at each meal will help keep you full. You don't need something like this to keep you full, you just need food.

    I agree with Shannon, and I would add that if you are indeed usually hungry, then you need to eat much, much more food.  Here's what Whole30 recommends:
     
    1. 1-2 palm-size portions of protein
    2. 1-2 or more thumb-size portions of fat
    3. 1-3 cups of vegetables
     
    Do that three times a day, the first time within one hour of waking. Your goal is to eat enough at each meal to keep you satisfied for 4-5 hours. If you are genuinely hungry between meals, eat a mini-meal of protein, fat, and veggies or even another full meal.  In other words, in Whole30Land, when you are hungry, you really really do get to eat.

    ImanAlAulaqi got a reaction from GFChris in Possible accidental slip, not sure whether to start over?   
    I loved reading these comments and the article up there you're all right I think it's because this is my first whole30 and first time eating out I wasn't aware of how hard it would be to get things right.  I actually first went to another restaurant and left because there was nothing on the menu I could order then for this one I thought if I omitted the dressing and didn't eat the chicken it'd be compliant but I was totally wrong.  Lesson learnt never again unless I make sure beforehand 100% that it is compliant and they could offer that not just say so because after 15 days of hardwork it felt a waste and I was totally disappointed afterwards.  But since it was my mistake I officially started over today and today is my day one.  I said I'd do a whole30 and I'm not gonna let one slip mess it up for me I'll just start over and 30 days from now I'd be glad I did it the right compliant way! What's an extra 15 days anyway?

    I have eggs and mashed sweet potato and blueberries mixed and cooked in a bowl in the microwave for breakfast sometimes, especially when I'm feeling off colour. I guess it's sort of a pudding but then again it doesn't seem much different to the soup and ground meat I also mix into a bowl and microwave for breakfast. This morning I had a leftover lettuce leaf wrap for breakfast. I like how this food has become normal fair. I've stopped looking for swypo food... Although some of what I eat might be, the intent isn't there any more. I've been thinking for months now that I could make an almond meal pie crust and pizza base that I made a year ago for something different bu it hasn't progressed!
