    kb0426 got a reaction from GLasBro in Calories - do I really not count them???   
    I counted calories via a website religiously for 4 yrs and had declared that I always would.
    After the whole30, I am DONE with calorie counting and love listening to my body. I have a beautiful relationship with food now!
    I lost 9 pounds while doing the program, where I had gained 10 in the last two years by my religious calorie counting and measuring. When you count calories, it is so easy to underestimate your intake and overestimate your output. Here, there is no counting; just eating and enjoying with more energy than ever before!
    Give it just 30 days. If your life is not changed, go back to counting. Would love to hear your results!

    Hi!
    Susan had a wonderful idea of having one place where it is all things related to making/brewing Kombucha could be asked and answered. There are several of us that are newbies at this (me) and some real pros out there (Susan, Miss Mary, Nadia...) and thought that one place to keep all things related to making your own kombucha would be helpful for others embarking on this journey.
    I have begun the process of making my own SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) and if this is an epic failure, will end up getting SCOBY locally. I have heard Craig's List is a great source for people giving away free SCOBY to a good home! My potential source is one from Miss Mary!
    I am reading up on the process to actually make the kombucha. Just like when I made my own sauerkraut for the first time, I am a little intimidated! This isn't something my mother taught me how to do growing up!
    We will all learn together!

    I think (and please note that my memory is fading ) that it was the Imagine brand of chicken broth that I used when I was unable to make my own.

    I fear I am in the camp of someone that just wants to see newbies succeed, but also need to learn when the ST*U.
    Unless I can find a quote from a mod, I will put myself in time out for now.

    My only advice is this:
     
    1. Have fun
    2. There are no kombucha failures.  Just lessons on how to improve the next time .  Kind of like the whole30.  Or life
     
    Seriously, have a great time with it!
