I'm still here. I think I've been enjoying my whole 30 journey. I haven't weighed myself yet, but to be honest, I don't think my clothes got looser. I think this experience showed me that I can do a lot of things that I set my mind to. My main reason to start this was to quit sugar, and I think Whole 30 has really been helpful for me to achieve this goal. I don't really have strong sugar craving now, yes I still think desserts look yum, but I now find it much easier to say no to them. The things I miss most is rice. And no, cauli rice is NOT rice. I'm Asian and I think this is something I will not give up. I also really miss wine. I miss the social aspect of having a glass of wine with coworkers after work. Life is also about pleasure, so I will definitely keep wine in my life. My goal for after Whole30 is to continue my no added sugar diet, unless it's a very special occasion. I'm also really happy that now I don't really snack between meals anymore, which is perfect preparation for my Invisalign treatment scheduled to start next month.
Thank you for the feedback. Since I don't have a lot of food ingredients at home (that's why I'm officially starting tomorrow), I think I'm lacking protein as well. I know a lot of diets encourage fat intake, the problem with that for me is I have IBS ... lol fat makes it worse. I just had my dinner, I tried to put in more protein this time. Kale, Brussels sprouts, yellow pepper(1) and zucchini (1) scrambled eggs (2) with coconut oil. (It's like a veggie stir fry with eggs) 3 slices of organic deli turkey. (Oven roasted no added sugar) Baked sweet potato (half). Baked tilapia filet with olive oil, salt and black pepper. Broccoli (maybe 6-8 florets?) and 1 tsp of almond butter. Quitting sugar is my main reason of starting Whole30, I'll keep your advice in mind that I shouldn't use fruits to cope... Thank you again.
I'm also starting my Whole30 tomorrow 9/9/2019. It's my first time. I'm a little intimidated lol. Even though I'm starting tomorrow, today is my trial run and see what it's like. So far it's not that bad. I've had one meal so far today (brunch). Sauteed mushrooms and broccoli scrambled egg (1). One banana and one tsp of almond butter. One peach. One cup of coffee with nutpod creamer. As for dinner, I'm planning to do a pan seared tilapia with sauteed vegetables (red pepper, broccoli, shredded kale) and one medium sweet potato (steamed). I'm Asian and I miss rice already lol....
