    Basically a clean eating plan that completely cuts what the inventors of Whole30 feel are crappy foods out of your diet. No processed foods, no added sugar, no artificial sweeteners, no caffeine, no dairy, etc off the top of my head. Don't quote me on it though. You can do a google search for whole30 to get the website.

    Caffeine is fine*; chocolate, not so much. (I drink black coffee/black tea.)

    *Fine, as long as you don't add sugar/sweetener, dairy, or fake cream. Coconut milk is OK.

    What is your line of reasoning here?

    And don't say added calories...

    There's nothing on Whole30 that says you can't have caffeine. Whole30 does, however, say no dairy, no added sugar/sweetener, no processed food. So there you go.

    Specifically, here's what the folks from Whole9 say:

    Coffee: Yes

    Yes, you can have your coffee. You’re welcome. You can drink it black, add compliant coconut milk or home-made almond milk, or add cinnamon or vanilla beans to the brew. But remember, Whole30 guidelines exclude milk, cream, non-compliant milk substitutes, and added sweeteners—including stevia (more on that below). For more of our recommendations regarding your coffee consumption, read our Coffee Manifesto.

    Tip: Regarding “Paleo” coffee creamer… sigh. We know there’s a recipe out there where eggs, coconut milk, dates, and some voodoo magic are combined with prayers to create a thick, creamy concoction that can take the place of your cream and sugar (or Coffeemate) and once again transform your undrinkable black coffee into sweet, creamy caffeine. Technically, we suppose, you could do this and still stay compliant, but we really wouldn’t recommend it. Instead, we’d encourage you to take a look at why you need this at all. Do you really like coffee, or are you drinking it for the hit of sugary flavor?
