    Food facts..... There is a ton of additives that the USDA does require ( loop holes) companies to list. The law states it needs to be listed but there are ways to get around it...

    http://www.fsis.usda.gov/oppde/rdad/FRPubs/01-016DF.htm
    This is referring to the enzyme ( meat glue) Transglutaminase. TM.
    If the deli product that you are getting has been formed to look like a turkey breast or a roast beef/ham.... It more than likely has TM gluing it together in a slury of collagen ...gelatin..broth..... They suck up up through a vacuum tube ( Augustus Gloop) and pump it into preformed plastic bags... Sealed and steamed.... If it looks like its been roasted it was spray painted with caramel coloring after the goo sets up.
    Have you every roasted a fresh turkey and had the slices come out in perfect ovals..... Food Chemistry!!!
    You can buy bone out natural turkey breasts and roast them for well under half the price of deli turkey. Then consider all deli meats have a ton of water added.... The price is more like 1/4
    I get grass fed tri tips and top rounds to roast.... Yield is 85%. So roasted fresh it costs me less than $12 per pound. Organic/ natural roastbeef in the package is usually $14.99 for 6 oz and 1/4 of that is added water So $15 for 4 ounces of beef.....that's $30 per pound!!!!
    I know it's convenient but it just don't add up!!!!

    LOL, Linda! I started on W30 Saturday and I have the same pee problem! I think what is happening is my body is releasing the excess fluid that a crappy diet holds into. I'm hoping it will been itself out by next week! Sleep (or lack of) has always been an issue for me since I had my kids 20+ years ago so I'm no help there. Good luck!

    Thank you for this! I worked a rogue night shift this week (between day 2 and day 3 of my W30) and was having some guilt twinges regarding my every 2 hour egg/meat/coconut milk/veggie 'muffin' - but it allowed me to get through the night without having graham crackers and peanut butter (an ICU staff nutritional staple!). It's not what I do on a normal day, but I survived my shift with my W30 intact so it was a victory. I think we are very hard on ourselves sometimes. I was actually feeling GUILTY about the 'egg muffings' because I felt I was 'snacking'. Then I remembered that we hear a lot about context here. And in that moment (or those 12 hours) I was doing what I had to do to maintain my W30. And I felt better. Yay me!!

    Well said.
    As many of us are at different stages in the journey, what we share on here is what is working for us, and you only learn that by following the rules and paying attention to how you respond. It's amazing how plain your body/mind make it for you if you stop to listen. But you need to start with the rules....
    Good luck everyone!
