    Weight Loss?

    Thanks to everyone for the responses! It's hard to change mentality after years of calorie counting, measuring, tracking, etc. I am going to try and just listen to my body and eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full. I know I'm only on day four but I could swear my digestive system already feels happier and lighter!

    Weight Loss?

    Hi all, I am on day 4 of my first Whole30. I have done Paleo before so it wasn't a total shock to me. However, I have basically been a Weight Watchers member for the last 7 years. I lost 75lbs on WW, but I know I was eating a lot of crap. I actually lost 105lbs in a matter of 16 months on WW back in 2005-2007 and I hit a major plateau. Over the next five years I've been up and down, but gained back 25lbs. I really want to lose 30lbs to get to a healthy weight for my height/body. I have been bad and trying to count points these first few days of Whole30 and seeing that isn't really going to work. According to WW I am eating too much when I know in fact I am not and that I am eating much healthier. I guess my question is, which I'm sure many of you can understand is how can I be sure I will lose weight during this process? Should I limit my fruit and nut intake to one serving a day? Should I track my foods? My CrossFit box had me tracking on a 30 day Paleo challenge I did last year. I know this isn't about weight loss, but that is very important to me too. Thank you!
