I successfully finished my Whole30 experiment! It is a story of the good, bad, and ugly. I started out as a fat man. I ended as a skinnier fat man. But it is all good. My new healthy lifestyle is just beginning! The Good I completed my commitment to start and finish the Whole30 program. I accomplished most of my goals. I learned to think differently about food. I learned to make good food choices. I learned new kitchen and cooking skills. (I also learned I am a messy cook.) I learned new recipes. I created new recipes. There is good collateral damage. The family eats better now that they have a choice between what I cook and what my wife cooks. I learned that my old way of eating was destructive. I had reached the point before starting the Whole30 program that I needed to talk to my gastroenterologist about IBS. But the doctor's office rescheduled my appointment due to a scheduling conflict. So I did not see my doctor until towards the end of the 30 day period. Good thing. All the digestive system issues went away during the Whole30 program! I am ready to start the next phase, which will include more gym time. My left elbow tendonitis is gone. The Bad I now have a turkey neck. My face and neck are not as plump as before. So I have some loose skin on my neck. I spend more time cooking. I love to eat! Cooking, not so much. Good thing I bought an Instant Pot, which cut down on the cooking time. We talk about food more now. Not so sure this is a bad thing except for those who don't want hear food talk. I still have no hair on top of my head. I guess Whole30 does not do everything. (A bald guy can always hope.) My lower back pain is still with me. Physical therapy is helping to strengthen hip and upper leg muscles, which is helping my lower back. The Ugly Realizing the marketing myth that low fat and no sugar products are good for you is not true. The government and medical establishment do not have your best interests in mind when it comes to nutrition. Summary Daddy has a whole, new wardrobe. Actually a closet full of clothes that now fit. Yay!
