    Zoodles got a reaction from trezkholl0806 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

    Hi all! I'm 15 days in my whole 30 and contemplating continuing on. Still too early to tell but if you're ok with it, I may join you all and extend my commitment to 100 days rather than 30. My start date was Oct. 21.

    I had a brief tempation last night to make my W100 a W30. I thought that doing a hundred days is a bit silly etc. but it is not! W100 can only be a good thng, cement new habits etc. I was tempted, and i am sure I might feel the same in my coming holiday. But I am very curious to see what a W100 does, so I will stick it out.

    I'm doing a fresh start November 1 also.  I freely permitted myself to participate in Halloween festivities and candy ingestion - and it was totally worth it.  Though today is hard because of course now no one wants the candy in their house anymore, so everyone has brought the candy to work, to call to me as I do my graveyard shift.
     
    Today was a good fresh start.

    Oh and good idea re motivational quotes Francsois, I'm probably only going to post when I'm struggling or if I get some good results lol!
    PS littlekirbo, why don't you celebrate with us anyway? Sugar shouldn't cause inflammation, and if you need to add on a few days at the end to conquer that dragon you can 86 days is still a mighty accomplishment!

    I was having 2-3 cups a day, just because I liked it....during my whole 30 I accidentally went without for a couple of days, realised I felt no withdrawals and then had a competition with myself to see how long I could go without!
    I went about 6 weeks? Maybe 5....I've added it back now, because I enjoy it! I drink less, and try to not have it at night anymore even though I never noticed it effecting my sleep.

    Haha well you're looking pretty healthy already Francsois! I took a before shot too but it's so depressing I'm going to just keep that one to myself for the moment....
     
    I want to lose this 8kg or so I've put on this year, get my cravings under control, get my blood sugars well controlled again (I'm T1 diabetic) and shake off this sluggishness that I have when I eat badly.
     
    I'm single mum to a 9 year old boy, I live in Sydney, and am just finishing up my PhD in pharmacology/looking for a job. The stress of thesis writing has made me spend my nights stuffing toast into my face as a form of procrastination...NO MORE!!

    I may jump in here.  I did a Whole30 with the September 9 group and then some of us continued on with the October 14 group.  I took one day off at the end of my first Whole30 but then had a bad day in the midst of my second Whole30, so today is Day 2 of my restart of my second Whole30 ....... Tired yet?
     
    I have two children with severe ADHD.  Their behavior is so altered this month with people slipping them Halloween candy that I have vowed that I am going to start them on a Whole30 starting November 1st.  So I have a few more days to gear up to providing them with healthy, edible Whole30 meals.

    I know when I'm comparing diff brands they have varying % of coconut extract, maybe this is why?

    Did you know that gluten activates the opiate receptors in our brains? When I found this out it explained a lot about how hard it is to quit eating it, and how once you have some you're going to want more.

    That attitude is so frustrating, if we ate badly every time there was a "special occassion" or a different "just this once", we'd be eating rubbish pretty much every day. But you survived Francsois, woohoo! Nearly one week in

    Zoodles reacted to amberino21 in Day 23, off track with larabars, not seeing results, start over?   
    Carla has made some good points - have you considered continuing after 30 days? Extending may help you get better results and form better habits.
    If you are feeding, and want to continue, you probably need a little extra nutrition....snacking on fruit and nuts isn't the right way to go, as you've discovered!! Perhaps plan 4 meals a day - all template meals with protein, fats and vegies. This will hopefully eliminate your need for a snack and get your habit under control.
