    PS I've decided to make this my catch-all humor funny meme joke thread (and not sure why I spelled it "humour" in the title --- let's say it was a shoutout to @jmcbn)

    lol ya reminds me of how I've long marveled at how marketers got the "protein bar" label to be accepted on what should clearly be called "carb bars".

    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!

    Have not posted since day 7, but I am on Day 15! 15! Halfway! I won't bother trying to remember what I have eaten, but we have stuck with it! I have been noticing some non-scale changes. My skin is clearer, belly flatter, my mind is clear and I have a lot of energy. Yesterday we laid by the pool then went to the gym and I felt glowing! I have definitely been craving some weird stuff and having food dreams. I dreamt I ate a chip, and then I felt so guilty in the dream. My partner had a dream about fruit snacks.  I heard someone open a La Croix in my office and it made me want a Diet Coke so bad, and I hardly ever drink soda. It is so strange to really see the psychological hold food has over us. While I still have been wanting to go out eat (I love eating at restaurants) I am at the point where I'm like meh, nothing sounds good and I don't care... ha! But I feel energized, and ready for that TIGER BLOOD!

    The closer you are in your daily eating to a Whole30, the less difference you'll find "overall" during the 30 days.  You'll still potentially find some issues with reintros due to the clean slate that gets created, but you're not going to get that cold water shock like you would if you were coming from a lifestyle of daily McDonald's and Pizza Hut.
