    Wow day 6 was a breeze compared to day 4/5!!!
     
    So happy, so much energy and I'm back in the gym doing full workouts 
     
    I'm also falling asleep easily and waking refreshed!  This is a change for me as I am a shift worker and used to find it really hard to have a decent sleep.
     
    Noticed my stomach isn't bloated at all any more and it feels great.
     
    Hope everyone else is having a great day  Time for me to sleep then start day 7

    Day 10, my skin looks better each day and I am losing weight, my clothes are looser everywhere, finding the meals great, my only issue is trying to find some time to myself to have lunch at work, - impossible! Constant interruptions by people wanting things done. Ended up getting the protein part of lunch today at 330, had to abandon the avocado ( fat) and salad. Fortunately, not hungry as this diet is so filling.

    It's my own cheat laksa. Fry 2T laksa paste in 2T olive oil for 1 minute, add 1 large can coconut milk ( Ayam is my fave) and 250ml chicken stock. Add 1T fish sauce, vegetables of your choice eg cabbage, snow peas, book choy etc, 1T lime juice. Simmer for about 5 minutes, adjust taste to balance sweet ( coconut milk), acid( lime), spicy ( paste) salty( fish sauce)just before serving stir in a handful of mint and basil leaves
    To serve, serve over uncooked zucchini noodles ( use a julienne peeler) top with cooked chicken breast ( skin on) roughly chopped. Sprinkle with fried shallots from an Asian grocery store. I used laksa paste from the Malaya, but there are plenty of good ones around. Let me know how you go if you make it.

    lesley2014 reacted to Physibeth in Amount of Fat - what counts?   
    You can add ghee or oil to your vegetables, you can add 1/2 an avocado, you can add homemade mayo to a piece of meat, make a salad dressing, add olives, you can sprinkle coconut flakes over something. Lots of options. Nuts are probably best used at most in one meal a day as they are on the limit list. There are so many options really!

    Fat used to cook with generally does not count, so added fat would be necessary.  Remember, having more than 1-2 thumbs of fat is okay, having less is not. Best to err on the side of more

    Malaysian chicken laksa for dinner, easy, full of delicious spicy coconut milk and whole30 compliant! Definitely not feeling deprived.

    I am from the Hunter Valley in NSW and started the whole 30 yesterday. Found some great recipes from the 'Clothes Make the Girl' website. Good luck to all you Aussies.

    Hi, I'm in Sydney and started this on 28 Jan with some American friends after hearing them rave about how good they were feeling at about the 2 week mark. Day 8 today, and my skin ( rosacea) has cleared, and my clothes are starting to feel loose. I bought Nom Nom Paleo by Michelle Tam and it has been invaluable as most of the recipes are whole 30 compliant, and everything i have made has been great. I've learnt some new dressings and sauces and this has really helped to add fat and flavour . I'd previously been following a low carb lifestyle, so this was not a huge transition, apart from eliminating dairy. Its nice to have some fruit back in the mix.
