    Miracle noodles have no carbs and no calories because our body doesn't recognise them as food and cannot use them. If I said to you put this gas in your car but by the way the car won't recognise it and the engine can't use it - you'd think I was mad. Yet somehow humans now think it's acceptable to eat *food* that our bodies can't use. Sorry but this is one of my pet peeves W30 is about eating real wholesome nutritious food that will nourish our bodies not 'stuff' that will provide us with absolutely nothing  so please, please no miracle noodles

    Robin, I'm going to print this out and keep it. You don't have to address every food related issue you have, break every bad habit, and shun every food that gives you comfort to succeed with your Whole30. I love it, love it, love it. thankyou

    Your make-up bag doesn't contain makeup, only travel sized bottles containing olive oil and balsamic vinegar so you don't have to rely on restaurant salad dressings.

    How about when you know a particular store sells sugar free bacon and you buy it regularly, yet you STILL check it each time just to make sure it hasn't changed

    You watch an old episode of NCIS and when a character turns down the offer of a burger with a "No thanks, I don't eat food I haven't cooked myself", you immediately think Wow, that's how to do a whole 30.
    and I really can't believe I'm doing this but
    When you save up for ages for a new pair of leather boots and then decide to blow the money on a vacuum food saver instead - and you're excited about it

    I've had all the lymph nodes in my left arm removed and was getting mild lymphoedema. the hospital fitted me with a really tight sleeve to wear. My daughter goes "Oh mum, it's making your hand swell up, it looks a lot fatter". I swear my first thought was "Yeah - that's the hand i use to measure my protein and fat"

    Went into an in-store cafe to treat myself to a black coffee. Was served it and then had the following conversation.
    Server : Is that all or can I tempt you with one of our cakes or muffins.
    Me: No thanks, that's fine.
    Server : Oh, ok here then and puts shortbread type cookie on my saucer.
    Me : No thanks, don't waste that. I won't be eating it.
    Server : But it's free!
    Me : (thinking to avoid an argument) It's ok I'm gluten free.
    Server : Oh, no problem I can get you a gluten free one.
    Me : (wishing I'd never brought it up) No thanks, honestly don't bother.
    Server : Oh you people that stick to your new year's diet.
    Me : I'm not actually on a diet.
    Server : What! You're not on a diet and you still don't want this even though it's free??

    My friend said "Oh it's all right for you, you've always been able to give things up (having a severe gluten reaction, I've had no choice) but I couldn't possibly eat like you - I like my food too much"
    Another friend " Oh I couldn't possibly eat like you - I couldn't afford all that meat and fresh vegetables are really expensive" while, I kid you not, filling her supermarket trolley with Over £80 of cakes, bisciuts, sweets and processed crap.
