    msmirnio got a reaction from penotti in Bullet Proof Coffe During Whole30   
    There are so many variations, I believe the most basic might be 1 tbsp clarified butter (ghee) with a standard 6-8oz cup black coffee. I just tried that...it's only OK I don't feel ah-mazing so here's a question/theory:
    Since us Whole30-ers already are used to having a serving of fat for breakfast, I don't know if mixing the Meal 1 fat with coffee really changes anything and gives us super powers. I wonder if people think that mixing fat with coffee in the morning is amazing because they're not used to incorporating fat so early? Whereas we are...
    Thoughts?

    msmirnio got a reaction from Leajea in Anyone not feeling the expected detox side effects?   
    Folks - I started my official Whole30 3 days ago - I'm a bit worried that I'm not experiencing any of the side-effects everyone's been talking about - negative or positive! No grogginess or cravings (however, I do have some wicked dreams of cheating!!), nor more energy or fresh feeling,etc... Maybe I need to get a few more days into it seeing as "everyone's different". I'd love to hear if anyone has feedback or similar experiences/worries!
    Additionally - I'm a little concerned that eating less-than-kosher-grade meat might be affecting the detox process - could this really make all the difference if I prepare my meat leanly?

    msmirnio got a reaction from Callan in How much do you off-road?   
    Off-roading is my real 2013 resolution. After my first Whole30 in November I went totally ballistic and lost control; my main goal for my recent Whole30 (ended last month) was creating a plan to live a Whole9 life without suffering or over-indulging. Here's why I'm trying to do:
    1) Alcohol - drink at social events, special occasions and if dinner is a real sit-down-at-the-table-use-napkins-no-tv dinner. Go 1:1 with water ( <---gets difficult as your resolve weakens)
    2) Treats - like kshacklett said above, don't even consider grabbing anything shiny and convenient in your breakroom/office pantry/ bowl of fake candy on someone's desk, those things are there because people think it's better to pawn them off instead of throw them in the trash, so essentially they'd prefer YOUR BODY to be that trashcan (though they're probably not doing that maliciously/on purpose). I use this question to help: "If I saw this treat during a Whole30 would I purposely come back to it after I was done?" Non-homemade or gourmet foods usually don't pass. Unless you're IN LOVE with some gross processed thing and you would rather eat a mouthful of bees than go your life without it again (for me that's oatmeal cream pies), then treat that thing as a gourmet dish and dig in carefully and thoughtfully.
    I've been eating 1-2 oz dark chocolate (over 70%) a few nights a week (ok every night this week). Also, preparing "paleo treats" is super rewarding; just plan to portion is out/hide it/give it away so you don't have 2 dozen almond-flour chocolate chip cookies staring at your face for the next week.
    3) Non-compliant foods - Go for it, but as a small part of or side to your main, healthy meal. This morning I ate SYPO pancakes with nuts sans maple syrup/toppings, with a side of green beans, mixed bell peppers and a little oz of chicken. At restaurants try a new sauce or get dessert to accompany your compliant order. The best part about not being on the Whole30, IMHO, is that you get to not freak out about ingredients at restaurants. Which to me is like a daily treat
    How much is too much can be measured by how you feel and look. If your sleep is getting wack, if your skin is breaking out (consistently), if your energy is low or if you can't find those rose-colored-Whole30 sunglasses at least occasionally, you've gone too far.

    msmirnio reacted to Jessica Darling in Every other month Whole30 for longterm weight loss?   
    My thoughts on the one month on, and one month off is that it seems like a large scale binge/purge behavior and could negatively affect your psychological relationship with food. One thing that the Hartwigs really seem to believe in as much as putting healthy food in our bodies, is having a healthy relationship. Using the Whole 30 as a crutch because you're scared of what you'll do when you're off it, sounds like you're also scared of riding your own bike with a little swypo thrown in for good measure.
    I would think about making a bigger scaled plan of attack on your nutrition and habits. Perhaps do a Whole 30, then strict paleo (which is a little more liberal), then maybe experiment with primal (more liberal still). Do each of these for a month while you're figuring out for yourself where your body feels good and comfortable, and where also your psychology can stay its course.
    It's not easy, but it's worth it! You'll do great!

    I did a 120 .... And since have only eaten white rice three times,soy once, and there may have been a off plan hidden ingredient at a restaurant once or twice, but otherwise I'm real happy eating this way.... If something special comes along I will weight the consequences and decide without guilt.
    I like sushi and will have it when I feel like it if I'm not on w30.... The white rice does not effect me that I can tell so I won't obsess...
    I also like pizza and beer but I just can't justify having them... I've been out plenty when my friends are swilling and stuffing their faces, and I eat a plain salad and water and I'm so happy knowing I will feel great the next day. It has never deterred from me having a good time socially.
    Do what ever works for you. If Every other month works for you, great.... I know myself and it I would find an excuse to go two months off...then three... Bdays,Xmas, vacation, Arbor Day ..... Just easier to stay complient and treat my self to rice once every couple of weeks..

    I do one Whole30 a quarter (4 per year) and I work on riding my own bike during the in-between times. I do still really struggle with riding my own bike and I'm usually ready for another Whole30 when the time comes around! It's a nice reset.
    I still feel like my ultimate goal is to just be able to eat well--mostly Whole30 with off-roading during really special times--year round and not have to "declare" Whole30s. But I'm not there... and regular Whole30s help me keep coming back to health and remembering *why* I don't want to eat the other stuff.
    I will say that I've pretty much stopped losing weight during Whole30s, other than bloat and a few water weight pounds. But I don't really feel like I need to lose weight, so it isn't something I'm working for during Whole30s.

    msmirnio reacted to KC Sunshine in Sleep30   
    I really enjoyed my first Whole30, but it became clear to me that of all the Whole 9 Factors, sleep is the one I have the most trouble with.
    My sleeping habits are disordered at best - I go to sleep at different times every night, and often will be short on sleep during the week, only to try and make it up over the weekend and mess up my patterns all over again by sleeping in.
    At the same time, I definitely feel off my game when I don't get enough sleep - headaches, brain fog, and an overall feeling of "meh".
    So, I'm going to do create a 30 day program to refine my sleeping habits! Here are the ideas I have so far:
    No screens for an hour before bed (as suggested by Dallas & Melissa).
    Start the process of going to sleep at the same time each day (washing up, getting into bed, etc.)
    Aim for 8 hours of sleep a night, which means getting into bed at least 8.5 hours before the alarm is set.
    Don't eat / workout for 3 hours before going to sleep.
    Protect sleep time! Just like refusing non-program foods while on the Whole30, now for 1 month make sure to get home at a certain time so as to get a solid night's sleep, even if that means leaving social or work events early.

    What do you all think? I'd love to get some feedback & input.
    The goal would be to reset sleeping habits, and then to slowly start making your own sleep decisions after 30 days, with knowledge of exactly how it affects your mood, physiology, and mental processes.

    I'm just dipping my toes in the off-roading pool and already the familiar overeating/guilt cycle are re-emerging. It's small stuff (i.e. 2 squares of dark chocolate when I planned on only having one), but I'm afraid of where it's headed. I felt much more comfortable with the black and white W30 rules. I'm using up some old supplements that have soy in them (seriously...is there a fish oil option with high levels of DHA/EPA w/out soy that doesn't cost a fortune??), but otherwise I'm thinking I need to try to stay away from off-roading for the time being. I don't think my mind is in the right place yet.

    msmirnio reacted to Lynn Kilpatrick in How much do you off-road?   
    I feel like the Whole30 was easy compared to coming off of it. I feel like it would be easier (in theory) to stay on it, but that's not realistic for me. I am a very social person, and I like to hang out with friends and have a glass of wine. I also love chocolate. So those are my big challenges.
    What advice do you have?
    My plan is basically to try to do remain gluten, dairy & sugar free as much as I can. And to maybe have a drink or two once or twice a week.
    The problem is that two glasses of wine turns into four and then the next day I eat crazy because the alcohol has messed up my blood sugar (I am hypoglycemic). I know the easy thing would be to say no drinking, but again, that doesn't feel realistic to me. Partly because my husband still drinks, though mostly beer, which isn't tempting to me.
    I don't know if it is realistic, but one idea I had was to not buy wine and have it in the house. If I want a glass, have one when I go out with a friend or with my husband, but don't buy bottles and have them at home. Or to only have cocktails at home, because for some reason I find it easier to only have one of those.
    Any other suggestions for off-roading without going totally insane?

    I'm trying to embrace the whole9 advice from ISWF of not eating things because they are simply there. Last weekend I indulged in a lemon bar that a friend made - from a new, awesome recipe that involved pureeing the entire lemon. This was not something I was going to come across any old time - nor something I had the desire to make. Plus, I love lemon bars. For me, oreos and hershey kisses would have been mindless food, likely that I picked up for free in the break room, since it doesn't really occur to me to buy them. I'm actually thinking of typing up the passage from the book and putting it on my wall at work so I remember it.

    Hi Folks,
    I had a difficult time deciphering this in ISWF - (ad nauseum dislcaimer) you're supposed to eat 1+ serving of fat at each of your 3 meals. However, there was something about NOT including your cooking fats in that number I think (correct me if I'm wrong, that'll be easy enough!).
    So for example this morning I ate sausage, brussle sprouts and sweet potato hash which was cooked in 1 tbsp ghee. I consider that my fat for the meal. Obviously I could go up and have 1/2 avocado or drizzle some evoo if I want more but does the 1 tbsp of ghee as cooking oil count as my fat serving for Meal 1? Or should I not include cooking fats in that count?
    Thank you!

    msmirnio reacted to Tom Denham in Cooking-fat count as fat serving?   
    You probably can't get all the fat you need from cooking oils, so it is important to add avocado, olives, coconut, etc. to some meals. However, you don't have to add extra fat at every meal. And sometimes your meat has good fat content. These things average out over time. Focus most on preparing a tasty meal and things will probably be good over time.
    Your sausage at breakfast is probably a good source of fat, so your overall meal cooked with ghee was probably fine on the fat content. If you were eating lean chicken breast, you would probably do well to add some olives to increase the fat content.
