    Turned off from food

    Why don't you make some sushi, then? just make it riceless with some coconut aminos. You could also try loading up on starchy veggies.
  2. Clothes? I don't know if you're serious or if I want to know if you're serious
  3. Not sure why we haven't done this yet, but I just made your post a sticky. NO MORE DROPPING OFF THE FRONT PAGE!

    Don't over think this.

    Lara Bars should be emergency food ONLY! The blueberry muffin bar actually isn't compliant because of the vanilla extract in it.

    Ideas for more fats?!

    Animal fat! Strain off the juices from a roast chicken/turkey and keep the fat for cooking. Render some lard or tallow.

    Sharon, yes! Just try to avoid using it with high heat. If it's all you have handy, it's not going to be a huge thing...but it's a delicate oil and you shouldn't overheat it.

    Where is the guidance on reintroducing Alcohol?

    whatever you do, don't reintroduce alcohol with a gluten containing beverage. (beer, many vodkas, rye whiskeys, etc) Cider is awesome

    Can I have Marijuana

    There's probably a better forum to discuss the legitimate homeopathic applications for marijuana than this one... I don't mean that to sound harsh, but rather realistic. Most herbs/plants in nature have some sort of useful application...that's where most of the active ingredients in most of our drugs are derived from. We're not really qualified...nor is this forum really set up to talk about the majority of that stuff. It's pretty off topic within the constraints of the W30. In regards to your personal experiences and how other people say they use it for X and Y, I'll just say that people are wired differently. Some folks are chronically understimulated enough that playing around with uppers sounds like a good idea, others are so high strung that depressants like pot can help them simmer down. Some people self-medicate with this stuff to try to balance out what's going on in their own heads. (though i'm totally not advocating that...just offering that perspective)

    Depends on whether you're on a mac or a windows machine. Macs are Option + E + [whichever vowel you want to add the accent to]. On a windows machine it's Alt + 0233. Not a big deal though. Mox just might be SLIGHTLY detailed oriented, so she made sure to include it when she set up my account.

    Bloated, looking awful, feeling low

    Oh, additionally, have you read the book? The genius of the program/book is that it takes logic, applies the science and them considers their own clinical experiences. Yeah, it's not a RCT, but if it works for thousands of people? It's compelling information (even though it doesn't PROVE anything)

    There are actually empirical studies about gut flora changing a your diet changes. I'll try to hunt some down for you. Robb Wolf also has a bunch of data from his risk assessment work with the Reno fire department, but that hasn't been published yet. (it's probably in review) More important than the scientific research, is eating minimally processed, nutrient dense foods, rich in veggies and high quality protein, from local sources with ethical/responsible practices REALLY that drastic? So you've ditched sugar and grains and dairy...but there is not a single macro or micronutrient in those foods that you cannot get with this program
