zBeverly Posted January 4, 2015 Share Posted January 4, 2015 I'm getting confused (perhaps a bit frustrated is more accurate; maybe it's because it's Day 3 ) I see people posting about having rice, potatoes (other than sweet), sausage, bacon, prepared foods, etc. How are these in the spirit of going back to whole foods and being W30 compliant? Rice...a grain (p. 103) Bacon/Sausage...processed/cured and/or SWYPO food (I guess for me not for others?) (p. 152, "technically ok" but not a main protein source) Potatoes...my words: poor choice at best compared to other veggies (p. 155...take a pass on white potatoes, please) or another SWYPO food. I get that athletes need more carbs, not talking about them. Isn't the point to get out all things that cause negative reactions (inflammation, for instance)? I don't mean to complain but why be on Facebook, or wherever, taking about Day #____ and how you had these foods and you're like so W30. So, why do this if you're not going to do this? You can decide not to do it because it's not for you, no harm no foul. But at least be honest about it. I know a lot of people do the sausage and bacon thing and source it correctly and fine for them (maybe I'm just jealous because it would trigger me). Anyone else feel this way (and I realize it doesn't matter what others do I can only work on me). From: http://whole30.com/whole30-program-rules/ Yes: Eat real food. Eat meat, seafood, eggs, tons of vegetables, some fruit, and plenty of good fats from fruits, oils, nuts and seeds. Eat foods with very few ingredients, all pronounceable ingredients, or better yet, no ingredients listed at all because they’re totally natural and unprocessed. - See more at: http://whole30.com/whole30-program-rules/#sthash.vTWC39Pg.dpuf No: Avoid for 30 days. More importantly, here’s what NOT to eat during the duration of your Whole30 program. Omitting all of these foods and beverages will help you regain your healthy metabolism, reduce systemic inflammation, and help you discover how these foods are truly impacting your health, fitness and quality of life. § Do not consume added sugar of any kind, real or artificial. No maple syrup, honey, agave nectar, coconut sugar, Splenda, Equal, Nutrasweet, xylitol, stevia, etc. Read your labels, because companies sneak sugar into products in ways you might not recognize. § Do not consume alcohol in any form, not even for cooking. (And it should go without saying, but no tobacco products of any sort, either.) § Do not eat grains. This includes (but is not limited to) wheat, rye, barley, oats, corn, rice, millet, bulgur, sorghum, amaranth, buckwheat, sprouted grains and all of those gluten-free pseudo-grains like quinoa. This also includes all the ways we add wheat, corn and rice into our foods in the form of bran, germ, starch and so on. Again, read your labels. § Do not eat legumes. This includes beans of all kinds (black, red, pinto, navy, white, kidney, lima, fava, etc.), peas, chickpeas, lentils, and peanuts. No peanut butter, either. This also includes all forms of soy – soy sauce, miso, tofu, tempeh, edamame, and all the ways we sneak soy into foods (like lecithin). § Do not eat dairy. This includes cow, goat or sheep’s milk products such as cream, cheese (hard or soft), kefir, yogurt (even Greek), and sour cream… with the exception of clarified butter or ghee. (See below for details.) § Do not consume carrageenan, MSG or sulfites. If these ingredients appear in any form on the label of your processed food or beverage, it’s out for the Whole30. § Do not try to re-create baked goods, junk foods, or treats* with “approved” ingredients. Continuing to eat your old, unhealthy foods made with Whole30 ingredients is totally missing the point, and will tank your results faster than you can say “Paleo Pop-Tarts.” Remember, these are the same foods that got you into health-trouble in the first place—and a pancake is still a pancake, regardless of the ingredients.
