    I am totally with you on the need for more mindfulness! Esp at work I tend to muti task. But even at hime, rushing thru meals is an issue. Anyone else have issues with this mindless eating style interfering with good choice? Hints or helpful iseas?

    I'm glad to have this extended program! I'very done 2 w hOle 30s last year. January I'm doing what I'm calling "my" whole 30. From last year I learned I must stay gluten free but no gluten grains are okay. Likewise aged or fermented dairy kefir, cheese) are fine but never milk. Since my goal is to sustain this diet I may choose to use very limited amounts of these food. Thanks to whole 30 and reintroductions, I kniw what works and what doesn't now (soy alcohol legumes and sugar are off limits). My downfall over the holidays were alcohol sugar and wheat so am glad to get back to what works for me.

    I'm excited to start the whole 30 tomorrow. This is my third--last year I did 2, and discovered what my "dragons" really are. Alcohol, sugar, snacking! Ready to commit again.

    Work full time in a food bank (challenge!)
    Avid hiker & backpacker & yoga
    Current: gluten & soy/legume & dairy free
    Goal for the long term, eliminate alcohol & keep sugar to a minimum
    Biggest challenge on whole 30: wine! And enough variety in food choices to keep going for the long term
    Looking forward to a great 2016!

    Also started Oct 21. This is my second whole 30, first one in February. I liked it and stayed "practically paleo" since. Well until about a month ago when junk started sneaking in my diet and red wine for coping with major life stress! My main issue so far is I haven't much appetite.
