Questions... Help please!!


Recommended Posts

Hi!! I started my whole 30 on jan 27, which means I'm just finishing up day 6!!!

I have two questions though that are weighing on me.... 1. I just noticed that some cashews I was eating were roasted in peanut oil... I have probably eaten a cup of them in the last 6 days. And 2. I have found myself snacking on fruit.... Mostly berries (blue and black) and some raisins....(all compliant, but definitely over snacking)

Do either of these mean that I need to reset and start over?? All the rest of my meals are proportioned correctly, and I already have more veggies in me than I have had in the whole last year I bet!!! (Ok. Probably an exaggeration) I just want to do this right, and have no desire to cheat at all... I just want to make sure I am ok to keep going.... Or are either one of those issues too big to call success through today?? Help!! Thanks!!!

I'm curious about fruit. The plan says occasional, what does occasional mean? I like to put apple, pear or blueberries in salad or wrap turkey around pear/apple - is this not OK? Fruit once a day, 1x/wk?

 

The recommendation for fruit is 1-2 servings a day with or as part of a meal.

I like to have a fruit at the end of each meal kind of a way to end the meal. Sometimes I'll have fruit for a snack, too. Does that mean I'm not Whole30 compliant?

No, you can eat fruit all day long and still be compliant with whole30 rules. However, we recommend limiting fruit to one or two servings per day, included with meals.

 

We have watched a lot of people doing this program (and the Hartwigs have even more experience guiding people through it) and based on that we know that more success comes from following the guidelines we suggest, such as the meal template, limiting snacking, limited fruit, etc. If you do need a snack, it suggests that you aren't eating enough at meals. So I would try to address that. Once you have (or as you are transitioning), if you feel you still need a snack, we recommend a "mini-meal" of protein/fat/veg. This will have a much better result on energy levels, blood sugar and insulin response than snacking on fruit.
