    The 2nd letter refers to what is known as an "extinction burst".  In the context of that letter, it refers to intense cravings for non-compliant foods.
    But I think the food "blahs" are also a form of this last ditch effort of your old habits trying to reassert themselves. Your subconscious misses the easy foods, the comfort foods, foods you didn't have to think about or read labels of or prepare and cook and etc etc etc.
    Perhaps re-read some of the success stories, and remind yourself of why you embarked upon a Whole30 in the first place. Where do you hope to be on day 41? (Whole30 + proper reintros, of course )

    I mean, as far as things go, snacking on Brussels sprouts is probably one of the least sketchy things you could do.  The fact that it's 10pm and you knew you weren't hungry kinda gives you the answer, yes?  But hey, some people would have dived in to a bowl of nuts and dried fruit in that situation, so by sticking with a veggie you are already a head above the crowd. Use it as an opportunity to learn about yourself.

    Fair enough.  Just be careful of using that solution when you roll through a Dairy Queen drive-thru after work

    Oh good lord.  This is one of those things that I thought, "C'mon, how bad could it possibly be??" and then one fateful day I was visiting my mom and wanted to make mayo and all she had on hand was EVOO, so again, "it can't possibly be as bad as people say.............."

    yep, it's that bad.

    This is 100% a real thing. The distance from a food item also gives you an opportunity to reevaluate how much you actually like it - I decided not to eat ice cream for a year in 2016 (it had gotten to the point where I was eating very expensive gelato 4-5 times a week...). After a few months, I actually forgot all about it, and the year ended up stretching in to 18 months. At which point I had some ice cream, and my friends were all "isn't it the best thing ever?!", and I actually was very meh on it (previously I would wax lyrical about ice cream and it's greatness!). Since then, I've had it every couple of months or so, I know I can have it, I just don't particularly want it.
    This year I have given up chocolate, which people find even weirder than ice cream! But again, it's just so much easier for me to say none, rather than "OK, just a quick peek down the chocolate aisle...whoops, was that a family block I just ate?". I'll still happily eat some chocolate fudge or a brownie at my local cafe (non-Whole 30, of course!), and people get confused and point out I'm eating chocolate. My life, my rules, people, mind your business!

    I will invite you to every party I ever have (spoiler, it's none) if you promise to bring devilled eggs!  I love them so much and they're such a pain in the rear to screw around with - which means I would NEVER make them for work people or anyone i didn't truly love but i would truly love you if you brought some with you this summer
