I went to a party last night so I gave myself six hours to eat and drink whatever I wanted. And boy, did I!! I had whiskey and chips and lasagna and brownies and cupcakes and cheese and beer. After eating so many forbidden foods, I realize it's all just calories and not much that I am missing in terms of tastes and flavors. I wasn't impressed with that stuff even after not eating it for 30 days. I don't feel deprived at all by the Whole30 rules.
Now I will go back to the Whole30 today. The six hour break was fun and I may do it again but I don't think I will keep that up. I prefer the Whole30 to the alternative.
