beachchica Posted June 18, 2013 Share Posted June 18, 2013 Hi! I'm pretty familiar with paleo eating, since I've been eating mostly primally since January of this year. I'm starting the Whole30 and have three questions: 1. Protein: On the Vegetarian list, dairy (yogurt/kefir) is listed as an acceptable food, but this seems to be frowned upon in the general Whole30 plan. Why is this ok for vegetarians? Is it because we need animal-based protein? If I eat seafood occasionally, do I still need dairy-protein? (Sorry- that was more like 3 questions in 1 ). 2. Fat: The meal template has a recommended amount of fat per meal, but how many fats should we aim for in a meal? Can I have 1/2 avocado and 1/4 can of coconut milk in the same meal, for instance? Is there no set rule, basing the amount off of satiety? 3. Gum: Is it acceptable to chew gum after dinner while cleaning up in the kitchen, in order to avoid the temptation to snack/eat dessert? Or is gum yucky enough that it's not a good way to avoid over-eating? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
