    If you have a sandwich press, stick it in that. Makes a yummy hash-browny type thing.

    Yep, I am not aware of any reason to avoid theobromine - it's the feel good stuff of chocolate If anyone does come across any negative effects of it, please DO NOT SHARE.

    LK I bet you'll be back in that dress in no time! You all sound like you're going great. 
     
    Trez, don't you love those food dreams? You get to eat that delicious but rubbish food without actually eating it. Plus the utter relief when you wake up and realise it was just a dream! Yay! 
     
    Good on you Gin for sticking to it even though it sounds like it's been tough! You're almost through 1 W30, so quite an achievement in itself, high 5!
     
    I'm on day 5, would have been around 29 or so I think except for the restart. Still waiting on some positive changes but I feel like the gears are starting to shift. Hoping over the next couple of weeks I'll get some results to motivate me! It's really hard to stay on track without results.
     
    Has anyone got tiger blood/better sleep etc etc yet?

    Up to day 18 - was sitting down to eat my delicious breakfast of eggs, mushroom, tomatoes, with rocket, leftover salmon and avocado lightly splashed with...you know where I'm going...Niulife Coconut Aminos Sauce!  I did have a lightbulb moment earlier where I was wondering why I was liking this stuff so much.  And like you guys I was so excited to find it at my local healthfood store.  But then I read the label and found this thread on the forums.  Bugger.
     
    Lesson One - read the labels.
     
    Lesson Two - if something tastes sweet and it's not a piece of fruit then your bulls&^t detector should light up like a Christmas tree.
     
    Lesson Three - tomorrow is day 19.

    Hey everybody... good to see that everyone is still here, with a restart or not. At least you are back on the bandwagon I agree with the whole thought of being able to grasp a W30, one at a time is easier than thinking "I have ONE HUNDRED days of this"... I think I will do the same. I'm on day 24 (a.k.a. day 14)... and going strong. I had my first food dream last night and thought I inhaled a banana icecream with cherries mixed in from Haagan Das (I've never even been there or would I have gotten banana icecream). I also thought in my dream that it didn't even taste good and wasn't work it, but "oh well" and kept eating... I woke up this morning thinking I literally had to start over. haha. Funny thing.
     
    Happy Friday!

    Zoodles got a reaction from faulknerhorn in Difference between coconut cream and coconut milk?   
    It's much thicker and has a higher fat content. Really it's just more concentrated coconut. I always buy cream and thin it out myself with water if I need to, it's cheaper

    Zoodles got a reaction from Karyna in Life changing? Not sure...   
    For me, once I'd completed my first Whole30 and come out the other end feeling great, my logic seemed to be that all the other foods were therefore bad nasty foods that did terrible things to my body. So then I fell into all or nothing thinking.
     
    Unfortunately, we are going to have to deal with, and probably eat those foods at some point in our lives again post W30. They're everywhere, and a lot of them are pretty delicious. So what I found hard is being able to eat a little of these foods once in a while without spiralling into thinking I'd done something terrible and so I may as well just write off the rest of the day and start afresh again the next day. And that one day of gluten/carb/sugar bingeing would lead to more cravings and then eventually after several months, I'd got myself into some pretty bad eating patterns.
     
    The 2nd Whole30 is always harder because you kind of know what to expect. You already know whether gluten/dairy etc seriously affects you, and if it doesn't, it's easy to think "a little bit won't hurt". The first time around because you don't know what the results will be, the experiment is more fun.
     
    I don't think there is anything inherently wrong with W30, and it will make you feel much better (well most people do). W30 helps you work out what you can get away with and what you absolutely can't, and also how good it's possible for you to feel. The learning how to eat in a healthy but sustainable way for the rest of your life bit is the hard part. I'm working on that now.

    Good luck chaps, I gave it some thought and I believe it would be better for me to start following the plan I intend for the rest ofmy days. I hope to do a W30 each year. I wish you luck, i will check in. Doing a W100 can only be a good thing. I am eating well otherwise, some of the good habits stuck
