    jale_g got a reaction from GFChris in Do you think I need to start over??   
    After all my reading, I've decided to keep going on and do the best I can. So with today being day 6- I definitely won't drink any more 100% juice. Since this is my first Whole30- I'm not going to start over because the information I'm reading on the Whole30 site say it is "technically" compliant to drink a glass of juice but, it's not recommended. So, technically I don't see that as a fail. (I know some of you do- and I can appreciate that.) I'm really starting to understand what they mean about rules vs recommendations. Like the whole snacking thing. I see that if I just continue to snack all day, even on Whole30 compliant foods, then I won't be breaking my bad habits.

    It's not a fail at all, especially since you caught it and are adjusting. That's the exact opposite of fail.

    Cooking with juice as a flavoring in a Whole30 is fine. Drinking it as a beverage is not.
     
    Again, we want to you eat/chew fruit, and limit it to 1-2 servings a day.  A fruit serving is whole fruit in the size of your fist.

    Fruit juice is only for cooking and not for drinking.   A small tiny amount for cooking.
     
     
      Fruit juice is to be used only as a flavoring in cooking on a Whole30: not as a beverage.

    You don't have to start again. However drinking juice is not the best choice so I would just move forward on your whole30 and not drink any more juice. I hope that helps.

    Drinking compliant juice is definitely frowned upon for many of the reasons that have been posted here.  Is it a cause for complete restart? No.  You did not break your nutritional reset, you just made a less than optimal choice.

    YEAH Jale_g!  Off to a GREAT start!  
     
    I started my second Whole30 today and I can tell you I never felt better than after my first Whole30.  Actually, I started to feel great around day 10 last time.  I hope you start to feel better soon!!!

    Good luck Jale_g!
     
    I'm on day 7 and feeling pretty good, although tired.
     
    A bit of encouragement for you. My 19yo daughter is doing this with me, she was a huge junk food addict, and pretty much ate constantly. Do you know what she said to me today? "Mum, I don't even miss the crap food"
     
    Stick with it, and soon you'll be feeling awesome.
