    I'll do it with you. I'm also cranky due to unknown injury that he sidelined me for 30 days. Gaining weight and losing muscle mass at the same time. I've been meaning to do the Whole30 but Halloween got in the way.

    You should also do MOvember: grow a mustache to support men's health. I cannot join you in that one unless my hormones go out of whack. At age 47, that is a distinct possibility. November will be a productive month for you.

      Contamplating killing people is normal for me I actually feel pretty normal tempermant right now.

      Welcome aboard

      I normally shave about once a month or less, but I shaved last might so I'm down to stubble right now, but I might shape it into a tash at the end of the month, just for fun (or I could always just hold a couple dreadlocks under my nose)

        I finished my second day of NO-vember. Sadly, I tweezed the only mustache hair I had this morning so MO-vember will have to be your conquest.

        I don't know if I can not have my heavy whipping cream in my coffee for an entire month. I did use only ghee today but it wasn't the same. I think I'll add that tsp of cream. That is my only dairy aside from ghee which has no casein.

        I cooked up a ton of protein yesterday for leftovers. That will be what keeps me on track for the month and off of sugar. Nitrate free Chorizo with greens and pressure cooked short ribs with homemade BBQ sauce (no sugar) and root veggies.

        How are you doing on your day 6? Feeling good or feeling homicidal?

          I'm feeling good
          Nice long walk this morning, I may have jogged a bit but don't tell anyone.

          Roast top rump roast for lunch, with parnsips, carrots and leeks roasted in gralic and herb oil, plus some greens, with home made gravy from cooking the meat on a bed of onions, then reducing and blitzing the browned onions and meat juices and adding enough water to make it runny again.

          Cold chicken, HB eggs, some ham, some chirizo and raw veggies for tea.

          I did have 2 satsumas and some kind of fizzy vit C tablet, but that's coz I can feel a cold coming on and it's not worth not taking vit C (and multi vits and garlic etc etc) just to tick a box IMHO.

          I've been putting coconut milk in my morning coffee, the really thick stuff in cans, I get stuff that is 75% coconut, it's the best I can get from the regualar super-market and I'm not paying silly money owt better when it's 4 times as much. It's not quite the same, but it does and I only have one with that in, I have been know to have 4 mugs of coffee with heavy cream in a mornnig, I've even had de-caffe in the evening just coz I like it. So I figure I'm getting less calories in this way

          I don't really think it matters though, one cup of coffe with a bit of cream, 7 cups and a pint of cream, yes, but 2 tsp, nah

            Wow, that is pretty intense. No nuts and no and no fruit? I am doing no alcohol in November. The first few days were tough but I am adjusting. I am also trying to do 14 days of ketosis so I can lose some fat. Going into ketosis and staying in ketosis is a lot harder than giving up alcohol. I used to eat a lot of fruit, giving it up is tough.

              Try North American Herb & Spice Wild Oil of Oregano capsules when you feel a cold coming on. I swear by it in the winter months. You should not take it long term (meaning all winter; daily), but it both fights off an oncoming virus and protects me from catching what comes home with my M.D. husband. I call it my "Shield". Go for the capsules, since the liquid tastes like I'm chomping on pine needles.

              2/day if I feel sick already. 1/day if I am trying to avoid getting sick. Since I started taking it when I travel, I no longer catch a cold from the plane. I always did before, it seems.
