    Day 28, Underfed, and Uninspired to Eat

    Oops almost forgot. I have also made hundreds of these in my life time. I would totally enjoy paleo recipes after your whole30 for a bit. Pumpkin Pucks: http://realeverything.com/pumpkin-pucks/

    Day 28, Underfed, and Uninspired to Eat

    If I were you, I would be be hesitant to start my reintroduction because it doesn't seem like you were to the point yet that you formed a new lifestyle change of incorporating new whole foods into your diet. I would highly recommend trying "paleo" for at least a week- still not introducing grains, legumes, and dairy, but having more food variety because there are less limitations. This is how I learned to love to incorporate adding sweet potato, pumpkin, and all sorts of veggies into delicious meals. For breakfast, when you are paleo you can have banana pancakes. Or PUMPKIN pancakes, which I have LIVED off of. You can also make pizza egg muffins which are the bomb (although that might be allowed on whole30 already). My favorite paleo breakfasts: Banana Pancakes *I make the kind with a bit of almond flour*: https://www.marksdailyapple.com/paleo-pancakes-two-ways/ Pumpkin Pancakes *My favorite*: https://balancedbites.com/content/paleo-pumpkin-pancakes-from-practical-paleo/ Pumpkin Waffles: https://paleomg.com/the-paleo-kitchen-pumpkin-waffles/ Pizza Egg Muffins *My other favorite*: http://realeverything.com/mini-egg-pizzas/ Other favorite paleo treats: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins *Yum*: https://paleomg.com/pumpkin-chocolate-chip-muffins/ Sweet Potato Chai Muffins *So much better than they sound!*: https://paleomg.com/sweet-potato-chai-muffins/ Sweet Potato Brownies: https://paleomg.com/sweet-potato-brownies/ I'm not a fan of veggies myself, but over a few years of paleo/whole30 eating, I learned that I actually love the taste of roasted broccoli, roasted carrots (carrot fries), roasted sweet potatoes (sweet potato fries), and figured out that I like cooked zucchini when it is covered in spaghetti sauce and meatballs (I'm too lazy for noodles so I just cut the zucchini in long strips after peeling the skin off). Or I just dip cucumbers and carrots in ranch...that's still eating my veggies! I'm not a great cook. When I am off of Whole30s I really enjoy Paleo Parents/Realeverything.com (if kids like it, I'm more likely to like it), Paleomg, and Well Fed/MelissaJoulwan.com

    @PattiS I'm glad that rather than quitting you are starting again! I can honestly say they if it weren't for planning meals (4 days at a time) I haven't stressed about food. I have seen food and said 'I want that', but I reminded myself why I started. And it's only 30 days. I make enough food at dinner so I'll have leftovers for breakfast. I do like to fry one egg to put on top of the leftovers. Frying one egg takes 2 minutes. I know enjoy having some meat, sweet potatoes and kale for breakfast!

    Day 28, Underfed, and Uninspired to Eat

    I'm sorry to hear it. Unfortunately, it's so very easy to eat overly processed foods that aren't as good for us... and does typically take more effort (or more money, if not both) to eat a healthier whole-food based diet. I get it, and I totally understand. I also totally agree that there shouldn't be any reason to settle for bland or just plain unsatisfying foods, even on Whole30 -- but it does take time and a bit of effort to break out of a psychological pattern of feeding our cravings for foods that don't support our health appropriately. Don't fret over not staying Whole30 after reintroduction. That's not really the whole point of the process. The point is to eliminate the major foods known to cause issues for a lot of people (and provide a pathway to addressing psychological relationships with foods as well, hence avoiding things that are SWYPO in general and for each individual), then see if those foods do in fact cause problems for your system specifically (through reintroducing them one at a time). If you learn that these foods don't cause problems, then great - use them in your daily diet and be well! It's still worth addressing the "worth it" factor on things that we crave that are less than great for us, though, even if they don't cause physical issues like bloating or pain. Anyway, back to a few thoughts. Do you have a slow cooker or electric pressure cooker? Both of those made my Whole30 so much easier because I could just add the ingredients and not babysit. There are also a number of shortcuts that you can take to cut down on prep time, like... - frozen bag of mirepoix = diced onion, celery, and carrot - frozen bag of Cajun mirepoix = diced onion, celery, and green bell pepper - canned crushed tomatoes + herbs = simple marinara base - lean meats don't have to be pre-cooked for slow cooker or pressure cooker meals (even spaghetti sauce or chili), as long as the total cook time is enough to get the meat cooked through. (I wouldn't suggest it with anything less than 80% lean ground beef, though I've done it with 73% - it just makes for more meat fat left behind, and that's not really appetizing to most people.) - frozen bag of cut potatoes My grocer's freezer aisles seriously saved my life, because I cook for 7 people and there's no way on earth I'd have managed all of the prep all the time. If you're only cooking for one and are able, then grabbing some pre-cut/pre-spiralized veggies in the produce aisles might also be an option (it would blow my budget, so I bought a spiralizer and do it myself). Whole30 took a bit of extra time, yes, even compared to the amount of prep I'd already been doing for my family. It cost a little more, though I've since learned ways to help keep those costs down some, because practice makes perfect after all But I also learned a great deal about how foods affect me and my personal relationship with food in general as well as specific ones that have been my go-to foods during mental or emotional stress... and for me, that journey was worth it. I really hope your journey proves worth it for you in the end, and that you're able to find food freedom within a framework that includes food you enjoy.

    Day 28, Underfed, and Uninspired to Eat

    I'm eating more bacon because I don't know what else to eat and I guess it's kind of tastier than everything else I know I can eat. I guess I don't know enough about carbs (that aren't bread/pasta) and starchy vegetables (just Googled). I'm diagnosed as biplar too (and borderline) but am currently off of meds... the foods I'm craving (cheese fries, pizza, dessert) are not workable around Whole30 at all. I can't think of any sauces I'd want to eat Whole30 either. All of your Asian ingredients seem to require work (I've used coconut stuff for sauces) and in this day in age, I don't see why anyone should settle for bland, boring, unsatisfying foods -- it's costly, inconvenient, and doesn't taste good to me. I ended up eating some raw almonds and compliant sausage in a compliant marinara sauce last night. Another day of food drudgery and 15 more before "food freedom" when I know I'm going to lose it and go crazy...

    Ælfric’s W30 №2 (Jan 2020)

    Monday 17th February (Day 12). Got lots of vitamin S yesterday wandering round the camping exhibition, to the point of being slightly singed. Not actually sunburnt, but too much longer and I’d have been a very sore and sorry boy. After weeks of rain, it has been so nice to see the sun (I think that’s what the strange yellowy orange object in the sky is called—it’s been a while). I think, despite it being summer, that I had SAD overlaying the depression. Anyway, yesterday’s mood was better than the previous week’s, and today’s was positively buoyant. M1: Turkey omelette. M2: Pineapple (tinned). M3: Grilled turkey “breaded” with almond meal, with sauerkraut, olives, capers, and tahini dressing. Don’t think I’ll bother with the coating next time. M4: Banana cherry berry smoothie. Ex: nil. I stayed logged on to work to try and catch up on some of the backlog after missing three days last week. Late night snack: Olives, capers, and sauerkraut. I’m craving something—it may be salt lost through sweat yesterday (I drank plenty of water, but didn’t have any salt in the water).

    Stopping by to check on you. How was your weekend?
  10. PattiS

    Start February 10th

    So this past weekend wasn't good. I need to restart today. Oh well. Back to Day 1! I'm not totally upset that I have to restart. I needed to have Valentine's weekend with my husband and family and not stressing over eating worked. I may actually give myself one more day and restart tomorrow. Question: besides eggs, what types of things can I eat for breakfast on the run? I know Larabars and Rx bars aren't ideal, but honestly it's really hard for me to make eggs every morning. Do you think it's okay to throw in those bars as options with a piece of fruit? Sometimes my "rule following" issues get in the way of success I swear!

    Day 3 today ~ and back to work! It's amazing that I can type that out and realize that I actually look forward to going to work. What the heck? Is that a thing? Do people do that? Haha... I've always liked this job ~ and there were some days in nursing where I was happy to go back on some level. Those days just also had an impenetrable, underlying sense of anxiety, because it's the nature of the profession to never know what the day is going to bring. I can handle "rolling with it" pretty well in most areas of life, but when people's lives are in your hands ... it requires a level of constant vigilance that is just exhausting. I did that day after day after day, often for 15-16 hour shifts. {I wonder why I feel burnt out on nursing.} So I'll keep it short today and just say: I'm so glad I listened to that little voice. I searched on indeed one time for the word "manager" to see what came up in my area. "I also have the business management degree ... let's just see what else is out there." My employer had listed this job as "Executive Assistant/Office Manager" -- and if she had not included the word "manager" -- we never would have found each other. That is crazy. I have become a part of the family, and I cannot imagine where I'd be and what I would be doing today if I hadn't listened to that little voice in that moment. As it is ~ I did listen ~ and now I get to go spend my day away from the chaos of my house ... in a wonderful, quiet, uncluttered, office space with the two beautiful Irish setters who have become my very best work buddies. ...Sorry, boss, if you read this someday. You know the dogs are why I stay. Everybody, as always, have a fantastic Monday. I hope you listen to that little voice and make great things happen.

    Day 23. Very Frustrated

    I finished whole30 round one plus the reintroduction. I am so disappointed by all the effort I put in and it did nothing to indicate any sensitivities to anything I reintroduced. My conclusion is, it does not work for everyone. I was so excited for the hope and possibilities of the "life changing results" so many talk about. It was a big let down for me. I would never consider doing a round 2 as the only difference I saw was a stabilization of blood sugar. This is because most of the food is low carb and so I was taking in less carbs. The stabilization of blood sugar did not change how I felt at all.

    5:30 S1 - chocolate coconut Rxbar I got to go skate! I was getting hungry but I knew better than to skate on a full stomach. I stopped to pick up gum for hubby at Walgreens and omg they had some compliant Rxbars but that was pretty much it. So an Rxbar it was. It wasn’t to bad either. I skated my booty off. Drank 3 bottle of water during the session because I was running hard. I wish I had my wahoo ticker it would have been fun to see how many miles I skated. I definitely skated off the ick and kill all the things feeling I had today. 9:45 M2 - gigantic bowl of lettuce cucumbers tomatoes carrots ham turkey eggs bacon and about 1.5 tsp honey mustard. Hubby and I went out to “our” little spot to grab some good food. I had a gigantic salad that I could not finish but it was so good. I was craving their club sandwich but i’m finally feeling better and I didn’t want to upset my stomach again… so their chef salad was basically the same thing without the bread. The waiter thought I was crazy when I asked him to bring out the honey mustard on the side with a spoon. I used the spoon to measure out how much I was going to drizzle on just to have hint of a taste. So before whole 30 I was a 2-3 tumbler of honey mustard kind of girl, especially theirs because it is home made. So good! The 1.5 tsp was just enough for the taste with out over powering the taste of the veggies on the salad. After about 2/3 of the salad I heard myself say I’m full. I stopped my fork in mid air and set down the bite. It was so good but I’m learning to stop when I’m full now no matter how wonderful the food was or how wasteful it feels. I’m certain the ham, turkey, bacon were not sugar free and I know the honey mustard wasn’t but I made that choice knowingly with out guilt worry or shame. I just had an extreme three hour cardio workout and I felt great tonight. I was excited about the salad and having all the taste of my favorite food without the havoc wreaking effects of gluten. Win win!

    Almost40, First Whole30

    Wrapping up a full week now. I struggled a little this evening with wanting to find something sweet after dinner, but I think that's part of recognizing how many bad choices have become habit/default behaviors. I was also kind of weepy and extra hungry today, and wanting sweet stuff is typical for me every few weeks...so I suspect this is all connected. The good news is I stayed on track today, and hopefully this phase will pass quickly. B: Fried eggs over grilled onion, red peppers and potatoes. I was very hungry when I woke up and needed something different for breakfast today. This was very hearty and satisfying. L: Salad with chicken and avocado; Tessamae's avocado ranch; celery and almond butter; honeydew. D: Salmon with roasted cauliflower and broccoli; watermelon.

    Day 28, Underfed, and Uninspired to Eat

    I'm curious... why have you eaten more bacon than usual, and why deprive yourself of carbs? There's no need to do either of those things on Whole30. And yes, changing up what you're eating can definitely help with food boredom, especially if you've gotten into a routine and eat the same basic things all the time. It's recommended to have a fist-sized portion of starchy veggies every day, in general. As a female (I'm assuming), you might need a little more than that on a normal basis, especially if you're anywhere near the period week of your cycle... more carbs are suggested for those who have mental health issues, also. I'm diagnosed with bipolar and do take medications; my daily starchy veggie intake is around a 1.5 fist-size normally, and I increase that to 2 the week before my period (and usually hold or increase again slightly during period week before dropping back to my normal level once it's over). When I feel like my mood is fluctuating downward, I increase my carbs a little, gradually... if I feel like I'm riding a little too high, I'll back it up a bit, still gradually. (That's not to say it works like that for everyone, or even all females or all with the same diagnosis, just sharing what works for me because it can give some context into how the suggested amounts might not be quite what you need.) Are there any specific foods that you really enjoy and could try to make work within the Whole30 framework, especially during your reintroduction? Or sauces that you enjoy and could maybe make (or find) a compliant substitute for? I know for me, I love Asian foods and flavors, so I made sure to stock up on coconut aminos, rice vinegar, and sesame seed oil so I could make quick stir-fry sauces and yummy salad dressings. I also bought a spiralizer so I could change up how I presented veggies, because there's actually a pretty big difference between baked sweet potatoes, roasted sweet potato cubes, and sweet potato noodles cooked in any way. It really helps with breaking up the monotony when I feel we're getting into a rut.

    We took a family trip to the mall today. I never go to the mall but needed a new pair of jeans. I DROPPED A SIZE! I couldn’t believe it! And I had major ‘sight cravings’. Dublin Donuts, little Caesars, Menchies, Diet Coke. But I didn’t cave! I got a bottle of water. I wasn’t even hungry, it was different not giving in to every impulse. The foods I was craving are not good for me.

    Hope you are having a good weekend @Emma. Remember that more than anything we are rooting for each other to make healthy choices, but we don't expect each other to be perfect. We need to do what we need to do, and then hop back on the healthy lifestyle bus when the time is right.

    Amy's Log for 2020

    Log Day 17 cont. Restarted Whole30- Day 2 cont. M3: Didn’t get to the store for zucchini, so I tried to make Brussels sprouts that were yummy, but failed, but I still ate about a third of them that were on my plate. Also made a beef/mushroom burger and a scrambled egg in ghee.
  20. Hey, so it's day 28 and I've been pretty much totally compliant -- once, early on, my mom realized she had marinated chicken in yogurt after I had already asked and recently I ate hot sauce and brunch potatoes I'm not sure were compliant despite my efforts as well. Anyway, I read the whole book, my body has pretty significantly morphed (thinner, probably because I'm not eating enough) and I am so, incredibly sick of everything I have been eating/can eat. I get the emails and read a similar forum topic on one recently where Melissa was like, "change up what you're eating etc." I have never eaten so much bacon in my life, I am not a bacon person and eat two slices (Applegate no sugar added) almost daily. I'm not a huge vegetable person (but have been trying!) so it's been a lot of eggs and meats, occasionally some potatoes if I feel like cooking them or find some I can eat. I think I've eaten 5 bars total (3 sea salt chocolate RX and a couple Larabars); I know they are emergency only and not recommended so I tried not relying on them too much. I mapped out my reintroduction and it's going to take like another 15 days. I already know I'm going to feel sick with the day one alcohol thing since I've been depriving my body of sugar and carbs to absorb it so it feels like a trick -- "eat super clean then see how you feel after you consume these things that are definitely going to make you make you never want it again." I'm just so, totally sick of it. Hotdogs and bacon and sausage and smoked salmon and eggs and eating out but not enjoying it. Also combatting mental health and boyfriend issues, which aren't helping but definitely all related... I'm not sure what to do at this point. Trying to keep a positive outlook and rereading parts of the book but I just don't feel good

    Well I got through today. I felt really bad, but seem to be doing better now. Started out easy, but then felt like homemade Tom Yum soup would be very comforting with my not feeling well. I started feeling better about 3:00 and couldn’t stop thinking of tuna salad. Apples and celery with almond butter and French style probiotic cashew cheese. Sooo yummy!!
  23. I'm not positive on this, either, but my guess is that they mean added sugar in terms of how it's labeled on nutritional panels as well as anything you specifically add to your serving of foods and drinks. So eating a banana or some pork cooked with apples wouldn't count as added sugar, but putting sugar in your coffee or having a snack cake would count as added sugar. I couldn't tell you how the AHA's recommendation would translate into a real-food diet, though For me, I've learned that I function best when I just avoid the processed stuff entirely and keep sugars to a minimum, including fruit. Avoiding fruit (apart from in actual cooking, like to help flavor a meat) also means I can enjoy a spoonful of honey with my morning tea, which is slightly less palatable with the sweetener Whole30 philosophy technically applies during Whole30 rounds... after you complete your round, reintro included (so you have the knowledge you need to make informed food decisions), then it really comes down to what your personal philosophy shapes up to be. Food freedom is about building a "WholeMe" type of plan, which means it might include foods that Whole30 (or even Paleo) wouldn't normally include because they work well for your unique body.
  24. Try to realize that your body's been going without these foods for a month, and springing them back into your diet is bound to have some effect. Sometimes that effect is basically unnoticeable, and other times it's blatant. Also realize that our pre-Whole30 bodies were accustomed to living in a state of constant distress. We were used to always feeling some kind of discomfort, of some sort or another, whether we had a "reason" label to slap on the effect or not. Once we've done an elimination diet like Whole30, though, our body is "cleaned" of many things known to cause irritation/distress to many people. This means that if one (or more) food groups removed was causing distress, then you're going to see a much bigger sign of it now that you're reintroducing. Think of it like a pool of water. If there's a machine making waves at the far end, and you're feeling them hit against you, then you might not notice (as much) when someone jumps in the water nearby... it's just going to send more or slightly larger waves your way. But if you're in a perfectly calm pool, then someone jumps in, the resulting splash and/or waves will seem much larger and more noticeable. The point of the elimination phase is to make our system like the pool of calm water, and reintroduced foods can definitely cause some very noticeable effects when you're starting from a level baseline and are sensitive to them Remember that the purpose of reintroduction is to eat Whole30-compliant except for the single food you're introducing back in, which should be eaten at all meals for one day (or two if you want to spread it out)... then it's back to compliant for a few days to make sure you've recovered from the testing before you test the next food (or group) by itself. My suggestion would be to take good notes, get through the rest of your reintroduction. If you want to go back to the troublesome foods you already tested to have another go and see if continued consumption allows you to become accustomed to them again, then that's definitely an option. However, a little tough love and hopefully a bit of a light-bulb moment... If you had frequent brain fog with constantly low energy, bouts of anxiety and depression, and general overall ickyness... all of which vanished during Whole30... doesn't it make sense that there might be something there that you might want to continue avoiding, even if it's one of your favorite foods? For me, it's dairy, specifically cheese. I grew up with an allergy that I started ignoring as soon as I could, despite the fact that I dealt with eczema as a result. I didn't care, I had my cheese so I was totally okay with the rashes, the itching, etc. Fast forward to my first Whole30 reintro, when I decided to test dairy just because I wanted to see what would happen... and I learned that it not only set off my eczema, it was also the primary cause of my life-long issues with indigestion (including heartburn and reflux). From that, I can say without any trouble at all that dairy is simply not worth it for me about 95% of the time... occasionally, I'll decide to have "real cheese" on chili or a burger, but generally only if I'm eating away from home. I've learned to make some truly delicious non-dairy substitutes that I can always turn to if I feel like I'd like to have something cheese-like (though I don't do that during Whole30 or any other time when it's about habits as well as the food itself). You've gotten some amazing results, doing away with symptoms that I know (from experience) had to have been irritating and miserable... so take a deep breath and remind yourself that this is ultimately about your continued health and well-being, and that you're strong enough to make informed decisions based on what you learn about your body's unique sensitivities and needs. Obviously, you're an adult and can make your own dietary decisions, but making informed dietary decisions is really what Whole30 is all about. We obtain information through our reintroduction testing so that we can use that information to decide what our ongoing food freedom should look like... to be able to say something is or isn't worth it, based on how we know it affects us.

    Guess who's back? Round 3 Day 1 on 28 January

    Happy Monday, people. Or as I call it, "ugh, Monday". Last 3 days of this round for me, not because it's day 27 but because my parents arrive on Thursday and will be making dinner, and Friday we fly out for a long weekend at a much anticipated cheese festival. That's ok, I have planned for this and will be getting back on track on the following Monday. Meal 1: eggs n kraut Meal 2: Corriander Beef Curry with cuailu/brocc rice Meal 3: Possibly lamb koftas. Maybe pork chops. I don't know. I'll work it out. Has to be something from the freezer because we only have 3 meals this week when I'm cooking, and one of them is fish and we have far too much food for me to be buying stuff on the way home!!

    Setting the stage for a life of Food Freedom 6:00 up with baby. Got him on the potty changed and he wanted bed and bottle. I feel like I’ve been hit by a bus. Not sure if this is PMS or the aftermath of that cupcake from Valentines. My guess is it’s the latter. Back to bed and sleep while baby sleeps 8:30 up and take baby potty and get him breakfast going. I’m moving at a snails pace. Change our laundry, start diapers in the wash, fold towels, clean up from babies breakfast, start dishwasher. Start my breakfast. 10:00 M1 - 3 egg omelet with Italian seasoning and tomatoes cooked in CB topped with a tablespoon of W30 ketchup, 3 pieces of bacon, large salad with carrots cucumbers and raspberry dressing. A mug of earl grey. I decided I’m eating W30 today as I don’t feel well in my gut or my head. I need to get my body back to home base where I feel good no bloating and energy. I did decide a cup of tea sounded soothing to my soul. It will be interesting to see if it affects me as I haven’t had caffeinated drinks since I started my January Whole 30. The good news is I didn’t want sugar or cream in my tea. I had it black and it was soothing. Good food in my belly helped. We aren’t making it to church today, plus baby has a cough and runny nose from teething. But we will all snuggle on the couch and watch via FB feed to listen to our pastor teaching from the Word. I was so grateful when they began using FB live to record the sermon for later reference because it helps us moms with kids who miss due to illness from time to time to remain connected. I also enjoy going back throughout the week and listening to the sermon when I have a quiet moment without a baby hanging onto me screaming to be able to take notes and really contemplate what is being said and taught. I did manage to get a few things done after the service before getting out the door to train with my gup. Maybe I can steal away to go skate tonight because I feel like I could kill all the things. Pretty certain my TOM is on the horizon.

    He normally gets it in his big toe and ball joint on his foot. I’ve figured out one of his biggest contributing factors is dehydration. The second is not having enough variety especially when he has several similar meals in close proximity. He is trying to eat a little more conscious but it’s hard for him. I’m hoping that with the changes he is working on making for the gout will help him avoid worse health complications in the future. All things happen for a reason, some don’t realize their diet is destroying their body until it’s too late, so I’m glad it’s gout waking him up.

    Sofija's February log - 1st Whole30

    Day 14 Finally feeling much better and sooo full of energy! We had some nice fritatta for breakfast and salmon for lunch. For dinner we had a little bit late Valentine's day special dinner with shrimps and it was awesome! I am happy that we've come almost half way there and we feel amazing. Hope we accomplish some important NSVs till the end. Being from Serbia, doing the perfect Whole30 can be pretty challenging. On one hand, we have access to great unprocessed and locally grown meat on our farmer's market (be it regular beef, pork etc or sausages and bacon) which is usually cheaper than in supermarkets, and a whole lot better. Also, vegetables, fruit and fresh fish are much higher quality there because our farmers are usually cultivating on their own farms. However, we are severely lacking in other whole30 approved stuff, like condiments and huge amount of different vegetables etc. So usually I have to make everything from scratch or skip some recipes entirely (cause we don't have coconut aminos or ANY compliant mustard..or pickles ). Sometimes it's not a big deal, but other times it can be really hard. Although, we are still doing pretty good on this journey.
