I made it clear that the w30 program is and always has been free on the site. There is no mandatory purchase. I wrote a lot more in their defense. Heck, I have never finished a w30, but I have seen benefits even after one week.
    He responded that he did not like their 30 day format, but that my defense was sound. He will remove them from future versions of the BIW.
    Thank you for this.

    I have to say that I was a little put off at first, but I know Dean pretty well. He is a well meaning guy with great ideas. That is why I laid out as gently as possible why I felt that he had the wrong impression of W30. Extreme, maybe, but absolutely not manipulative. Apparently he has had many emails from people who couldn't hack the w30.

    Having done numerous whole30's, it takes a lot of guts and work to make it happen. My first few were not that great. Subsequent ones have been better. It takes a certain amount of mental preparation and overall planning to make it happen. We all know that. Most people, in my opinion, don't know what they're getting themselves into and have a harder time of it because they don't know what they've gotten themselves into. But each time they give it a go, the do better and go for longer.

    But yes, it is extreme - but so is Primal and Paleo... and we've all made that work.

    Today is a DD. I had a 4hr bout of insomnia last night, so I'll need to be ready for the tired binge.

    That Variety show rehearsals are going well. I am now the sound engineer. I will be playing the background music for people's songs from my place behind the bar as barmaid. The a capella song that Mike and I taught the group is a hit. We do it in three sections throughout the show cued by an inebriated Irishman saying "everybody died". We are all pretty proud of ourselves because the musical director quit last week due to personal issues.

    Basement apt. Work and organization continues...

    Hiya P

    Apart from that insomnia turn it sounds like you're on a good one, as long you follow what you've been learning, you can tame that tired binge yearning.

    The show sounds like fun, do we have 'DJ P' in the mix here?!

    And good on all of you on the down day.

    Paula, are you still taking 5-htp? I have some I'm not using and thought about sending it to you or Nameless. Now I am reading that Nameless is taking an indefinite break from it. Would you like it?
