    This is so awesome. Just read all 14 pages. I'm getting ready to start my first Whole 30 on August 4th, and I feel like I'm joining some kind of exclusive club.
    When you're getting ready to start your first Whole 30 and you spend almost every waking moment looking for recipes, reading blogs, and making grocery lists.
    When your cart at contains coconut milk, almond flour, coconut aminos, tahini, a new crock pot, and a bunch of new kitchen utensils.

    I haven't had to deal with too many (or any) crazy things. But reading through this forum, it occurred to me that TMI may sometimes be your best response.
    For example: "If I eat that, my poo turns green and syrupy."
    Let them respond to that!

    You carry an avocado around, just in case.

    *sigh* I just went through San Diego airport security. My purse went through with my tupperware of flank steak and squash. The TSA guy said, "Really? Really?" and then pulled over a co-worker to observe. For real, dude! Yeah, people plan ahead instead of eating dried up sandwiches!

    I can relate to this person, actually. I love the Whole30 because of the science and just plain logic behind it. I'm not so much a fan of "eating like a caveman (or dinosaur or grock or what have you)" as a rationale for my choices, so yeah. I might take advantage of the paleo label to narrow down a recipe search, but paleo isn't what I'm doing; the Whole30 is.

    Yesterday I was filling out the paperwork for a new doctor (I'm seeing an oral surgeon next week). One of the questions was "are you on a diet?". Am I on a diet? What kind of question is that?...and from a doctor's office, no less! I mean, had they asked 'do you have any dietary restrictions?' I would understand it. Way to perpetuate the 'diet' mentality...
    I answered 'no' by the way because I am making the assumption they mean "are you eating in a certain way, temporarily" and I'm not, but really, anyone eating food is on a 'diet'. I can't wait to point it out to them when I go into the office next week. Yes, I'm going to be 'that' person.
