    Whole30 during physical therapy

    sweet. thanks for sharing. this has been a big ordeal and hiccup in my active live. yeah i have that same feeling, 'is the the whole30 or just coincidence' and i too have adjusted to the base my meals on level of intensity. just now getting into timed workouts (spin classes and those weird leg lifty cyclical walking things) and am able to do half an hour or so. i like how this plan is really outlining all the places I know I need to make the diet changes like, food planning, meat and carbs to veggie ratios, etc. nothing but good stuff. just making to day 12 now. have two drop in out of town visitors which is keeping me on my toes. thanks again for relating,

    Whole30 during physical therapy

    thanks shannon. most days the PT is not what I would call heavy exertion. it may feel like it to my left leg that has lost most of it's muscle mass, but the workouts are 30minutes to an hour 30 so it depends on the day. rarely involves sweating for now. I am still on a cane so there is clearly no jogging going on. but i am right at the cusp and my PT guy is excited to see what changes the whole30 can do for me. but the whole concept of system inflammation is very curious to me. thanks for chiming in. i need these forums to keep me focused on the task at hand. scott

    Whole30 during physical therapy

    not a single person here is in physical therapy?
  4. Yeah so here I am on day 7. I am looking for folks who are involved in PT recovery or doctor required activities, and their experiences with the pre and post work out meals, on top of the regular meals. I find it overwhelming. Not to the extent of reducing my resolve to complete the whole30 but, just overwhelming. planning, content and execution, my main motivation for the whole30 is focused on the inflammation aspects of the programs. my three month check up from the surgery date is tomorrow. good news in the last seven days i have seen significant reduction in swelling. is it because of my diet? we'll never know. but i believe that it has a lot to do with it. so i am looking for experiences of other, plain active and PT related active people. also favorite pre and post workout snacks, and how you arrange your workout schedule to fit meals and work. awesome. feeling good.

    Eating too much?

    Hey everybody. I am a first time whole30 and doing okay with it other than being underprepared. I was reading the book and it said something like, "now is the time to start....join the forum....do it now!" i am trying to learn to accept guidance so I did. In retrospect they might have meant get started on "planning" my whole30. I do have particular food cravings, being that my wife's food is still in the house. O'well day four is where I am at. I remember reading something about,"make sure you eat the suggested amounts as your body might still be lying to you." I feel like I am eating too much. Do I listened to my body at this point? Scott

    alright. thanks people. going into day three here. if day two flew by day three is starting off with a grind. thoughts running through my mind: do i want to do this? is it humanly possible to eat this many vegetables? why is it so cold out i live in louisiana? am i eating too much? (following the rules but clearly my body has no food intelligence as i am here) after a month will my food bill be lower or higher? when is the first weekend of mardi gras parades? (got to mentally prepare for dealing with others indulging) why do food labelers make some labels so hard to find? ARE SPICES NOT FOOD I SAY? damn you deli counter! did i not ever make a menu for the week before this because it feels like a lot of planning? and so on and so on..... also the other member of my household is in support but that doesn't seem to keep out the food questions like.....but aren't there hormones in meat fat? so not sure how to deal with all that as i am the cook and where as i do not want to torture her i have to do my thing and let her fill in the gaps she needs filling. is it bad for my wife to partially follow the program? e.g. to eat a lot like i am but then adding bits of cheese and grains. well enough for now just needed to get some of these thoughts out to you and to see how you feel about it. Cheers to day 3

    thx praxis. i do have a certain amount of physical therapy that i am required to do so we'll see how that goes. is citric acid on the no list?
  12. Hello all, Scott here. I have not even gotten to the...well whatever happens after this. Why am I here? Three main agendas. Recently mentioned to someone how I was going to drop some weight and they said, "that's funny because your so thin." Well despite that I am up twenty pounds in the last 2-3 years. This brings us to point two. I just went through a rather new and major knee surgery for a cartilage replacement. That's not possible you say? Well it is about to be. I am three months into recovery and in my opinion the swelling around the site of the surgery is not going down very fast, or at least not fast enough for me. In the course of examining causes and potential cures I was recommended this program from a new friend who described her journey with knee joint pain (that sounded curiously similar to mine) and how she resolved it through participation in the whole30. I am happy that I had the surgery and took steps to remedy my issue. But, whether the cartilage damage was from injury or other causes is unknown, but I want to cover all my bases. Dropping 10 pounds and providing my body with good nutrition is a win-win for the knee, so why not. Lastly the feeling in my gut. I had a good laugh at the section of the book that comments on the old limerick, "beans, beans, the more you eat....." I maybe don't feel awful, but there is a rock in my gut and I want it gone. Look forward to sharing with all you and changing my ways. Stand back everyone I'm going to do some science! Cheers, Scott
