Was just thinking about doing this this morning.

Sept is a good time. Farmer's markets still open, good weather to be outside. Sure, count me in. 100% Primal in my case. So: no packaged food, no/low veg oils, time outside, move slow and lift heavy!

I see Wolf allows for a little kerrygold butter. How about a little organic half/half, the brand I buy says pastured raised on the label. I think I can give up splenda more easily in my coffee if I can add a little half/half.
Are you all still waiting until Sept.1?

I'm on a strict candida diet that aligns pretty close to paleo. I can eat butter and butter oil(supplement), but that's it for dairy. I also can't have any nuts or fruit(except small amounts of limes or lemons). I get a lot of my recipes from paleo cookbooks and websites. As long as butter is allowed, I'm in.

I downloaded it to my Kindle and haven't read it yet.
Other than my 1-2T half and half in my morning coffee and very occasional cheese, I'm pretty strict into the no-dairy thing already.

I'm thinking about joining you all, I will only do it if I can totally commit. I want to lose ten pounds.
I am very strict to paleo, I do eat a small amt of kerrygold and that is the only dairy I have. I do eat a few servings of fruit per day now.
I havent checked, what foods are on the list?

Sadie I found this pdf file very informative on what you can have, though I disagree that you should avoid chicken thighs, bacon, olives and some of the other foods they list as a "no".

I'd go with the Whole 30 food list if you're looking to do strict Paleo.

I'll not be starting the challenge until Aug 29. I have a friend coming into town that will totally blow the no alchol part

My intention is to go 100% primal (paleo but allows dairy if you're not intolerant) until the end of Sept. I'm really looking forward to it. I try to stay pretty close to 80% anyway, but have been very bad this summer

potaty-I wish I had this diet when I was pg with mine. I would have come through it so much healthier. I think I would have had some milk production too--I was on the fast food diet at the time-as much fast food as I could get-not good for babies and not good for me! good luck!

I have been really looking at this diet and it seems doable. I am in for the thirty day challenge. Ill be eating organic fruits and veggies & halal/ kosher meats. Grass fed whenever possible. I have been doing callanetics for thirty days and some cardio and I am really hoping to see even better results in the next 30 days (particularly in the ab area). So hopefully this will help.
But I sure will miss my beloved black olives

Olives are allowed, according to whole30:
Quote:
Processed goods. We’re okay with cans or jars of olives, coconut milk, sauces and spice mixtures like tomato sauce or curry, or vegetables like sweet potato or butternut squash, but only if the labels prove they’re “clean”.

A bit confused reading the different official versions:

Pumpkin? (canned, nothing but pumpkin or fresh and roast your own seeds!) - lower in carbs and higher in fiber than many winter squashes, also makes a decent thickener if needed for soups, stews and things like that.

Bacon? I'm reading as long as it's not loaded with nitrates, it's ok?
Same with sausages?

I saw the v.4 list now allows all vinegars except malt vinegar(gluten), which is nice!

A big confusion about the addition of fruit juices as sweeteners. Personally I'd rather use stevia because I know I don't have a blood sugar reaction to it. I can't figure out why stevia isn't allowed since you can get it organic and all natural.

Oh and nutritional yeast? (bragg's specifically). Has a cheesy taste and adds nutrients.

So is everyone following one food list or doing their own acceptable version of good food? I should jump on this too and actually behave. I want to lose weight before October for both Halloween (I love to dress up!) and a Anime convention I am going to in which I also plan to dress up. I'd be more "in character," if I didn't look like I was still pregnant, haha

I'm going to do my absolute best to follow the whole30 foods list. If I just can't drink my coffee without half and half, then I'll go to tea in the mornings. A strong Irish or English breakfast tea wakes me up lol.

most canned pumpkin doesn't have anything added (besides the pumpkin pie mix)

I get natural bacon that has no nitrates, its not a staple in my diet though. Its pretty expensive so we get it about once a month?

We love braggs apple cider vinegar and balsamic for our salads along with grape seed oil or olive oil.

I pretty much totally give up sweetners during my 30 days. not even fruit juice sweetner. I dont get the thing with stevia either, maybe because for some it could be a trigger?
I'm so happy there are so many of us that are going to start on the 1st of sept, is it strange to say that im actually excited?
