    laura_juggles got a reaction from SugarcubeOD in Can I have D-Ribose>   
    Limited studies have shown that people with coronary artery disease may benefit from taking extra D-Ribose, but outside those circumstances, your body makes it on its own and supplementation is not necessary. You can also get Ribose from foods like beef and eggs. 
    Again, though, if it has been recommended by a person's doctor (and not some doctor on the internet), it's fair game.

    Yeah, not gonna lie, I don't really get it either. Back in the day when the flavors were the "normal" ones like hazelnut and vanilla it was pretty clear. But if cotton candy (which is melted sugar) isn't okay, how are marshmallow (which is also basically melted sugar) and caramel (hey, another variant of melted sugar) okay?

    I cross-referenced AIP and FODMAP lists when offering you more suggestions. Green beans and leafy greens came up as OK across the board.

    That's a no. It's still a sweetener.

    laura_juggles reacted to JRBILW30 in Red wine vinegar   
    Thank you so much for clarifying this as red wine vinegar is something that I buy a lot and the particular brand I used to buy isn't available anymore and I've found that what I can find says exactly this "contains sulfites" which made me think it wasn't allowed.

    Can you post a picture of the ingredients? Because "contains suflites" doesn't automatically make the vinegar a no-go since sulfites occur naturally in vinegars (like naturally occurring glutamate in tomatoes is OK but added MSG is not). 
    So, a vinegar that's ok may say something like "Ingredients: red wine vinegar reduced with water to 5% acidity (contains sulfites)" and that's ok. But if it says something like "Ingredients: red wine vinegar, sulfur dioxide" that's not okay because it's a separate ingredient.

    However, I've had great success with just whisking up some eggs with a little water and cooking very flat omelets in a pan which I've then filled with other ingredients and rolled up and that's compliant!

    "Defer" means postpone, but "defer to" means to allow someone else to choose.  Check out the definition from Merriam Webster: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/defer to

    You don't seem to have a lot of fat in those meals. Just cut out some of the fruit and add more veggies. Also, check and make sure you're drinking enough water (roughly 1/2 oz per lb bodyweight).

    Also, dude, that list of "worst diets" was a list of "worst diets for weight loss". Absolutely nowhere is Whole30 advertised as a weight loss plan. In fact, it's regularly mentioned that it's not. Lots of people do lose weight on a Whole30 because by giving the body better quality food and not a free pass to snack (lots of those "weight loss plans" basically have you eating little bits of food constantly), folks lose some weight. 
    Blood sugar spikes can cause headaches. What causes blood sugar spikes? Sugary foods, whether it's a Snickers or a Larabar. 
    Most folks don't know how to listen to their bodies without some guidance. I had no idea that legumes were what made me feel like death warmed up until I did a Whole30 with the proper reintroductions. I wouldn't have had a framework to figure out what was making me feel bad if it wasn't for the Whole30.
