    That's because fruit, while a natural sugar, creates an insulin response and later insulin will drop, making us think we're hungry again. This is why I try to avoid fruit all together or eat it only in the evening (because I'll be asleep when the insulin drops and won't be likely to eat again).

    If I eat fruit during the day, look out! I'm after anything I can stuff in my face.

    Yow. Good to know! I typically have an apple or two daily -- at least one of those is with a T of almond butter. Hmm. Things to ponder!

    Okay, ladies doing Whole 30 -- has anyone else had terrible cramps during their TOM? I was woken up by them at 3:15 this morning, which has never happened before, and I was so uncomfortable that I took 2 Advil at 3:34 am -- and the cramping came back this afternoon and was so intense that I again resorted to taking 2 Advil about 90 minutes ago.

    Just finished my TOM and I had the opposite happen to me...It was calm and only lasted 6 days not my normal 7. I usually have extremely painful TOM as you are experiencing so this month was a shock and a blessing.

    I think I might be having a UTI and that sucks...I was wondering if anyone has taken D-Mannose or Uva Ursi and if it worked? I don't want to go to the Dr.'s and get antibiotics or drink cranberry juice...Any suggestions?

    If you think you've got an infection, you may want to go to the doctor.

    As for me, ugh. I'm going to see if we have any magnesium supplements; if not, I'll have to head to the pharmacy.

    Honestly I've never found anything that works quite as well as pure cranberry juice (not the sweetened version). Also make sure you're staying well hydrated. Possibly to to much information, but I highly recommend taking cranberry capsules as a preventative measure. I started taking them after sex, and haven't had a UTI since...

    Thanks for the info About the fruit. Ive been trying to scale back on the fruit lately... Butttt I've been freezing bananas like mad, cutting them up, sprinkling w cinnamon and indulging. Soooo yummy. Satisfies my sweet tooth. Honestly it makes me think about processed sugars and sweets; nothing compares to fresh fruit in regards to taste!

    As for my reading the new whole30 book- I hid in my classroom (was supposed to be grading) and couldn't put it Down. Lots of nutritional info like PB, but it has whole chapters dedicated to dairy and other non PB topics. Haven't gotten to specific whole30 stuff yet. A bit sciencey, but doable. I definitely recommend it.

    Day 13: B: Bulletproof coffee, my first time. Held me through to lunch at 12:30 without a problem. ~5 hours. L: leftover curry beef meatballs, radishes, strawberries. Afternoon snack: 2 apricots. Supper: baked whitefish with the bread stuffing scraped out and handed over to my son. I may have got a few crumbs of wheat, but not much. Also Greek salad without cheese. Tea this evening.
