I heard about Whole 30 when Melissa H. appeared on my favorite Saturday morning cooking show. I'm not sure what it was but I was immediately intrigued enough to look into the idea of finding out if it was with me. I wound up on Amazon, using the "look inside" function to read excerpts of the book. Actually, all available excerpts fo the book. Sold! I got my copy (and the Day by Day daily guide) just a couple days later, and started a week long plan and preparation phase. I'm 61, retired for a year, with health issues. My biggest desire is to avoid going on blood pressure medication when I see my physician next. (Shedding some of this excess girth would feel great as well.)
Being that it is so early in the program for me, I don't want to start throwing accolades about, but, I have to say, that I'm loving this program and the book itself thoroughly. My kitchen counters are filled with baskets of fresh fruits and vegetables, and , oh the recipes! I am having a blast cooking! My husband is enjoying the dinners I've been preparing and I'm making my own condiments! At this moment I have two crockpots going in my kitchen and the whole house smells divine.
I know there will be tough days ahead, but this has been a blast so far! Has anyone else who may reading this had this much fun only three days into their Whole 30? Am I going to hit a brick wall soon?
I'm finally pregnant!!!
Before going into this I had completely given up trying. While only actively trying to conceive for about 8 months, I had really become discouraged. I wanted a change in my life as far as weight and food management goes, so I gave this a try. I ended my Whole30 on Tuesday February 5th. I dropped 15lbs, felt better, had more energy, was healthier, and two days later also got a positive pregnancy test!!!
They said the Whole30 would change my life and it did in the best way imaginable. I 100% believe that what this whole eating did for me was make my body a better place for a baby to grow.
Thank you Whole30!!!!
