    Whole 30 in france

    Thank you Chris ! I will do that then !
  2. My 30th day was tuesday. I am on day 3 after reintroduction. Day 1 = just had a bit of cream with my scramble eggs Day 2 = made some salad dressing with some vinegar (with sulfites) Day 3 = same as day 2 I wish I had stopped to reintroduce the cream because now I have a small headache and I do not know if it sulfites related or cream related ... I think I will stop the dairy for a while and see. It is not difficult for me to follow the whole 30 rules now except when invited or at the restaurant. When I am home, I cook whole 30 compliant for all the family and it is perfectly fine. I make it simple thought it is delicious. I was cooking complex things before following some recipes. I realize my cooking is better when I just follow my last minute ideas and my own recipe that I have juste made up. What's make it delicious is also : - the use of herbs, spices, garlic, oignons, - the fat (clarified butter, coconut milk, olive oil) - the good meat : I spend more money on that but it is compensated by the fact that I do not use any of this things : pasta, rice, legumes, bread, cookies, candies, soda, processed food in general.

    Day 25 - Bad mood

    Thank you - Yesterday was day 30. for the last 5 days I have changed few things : - no more nuts, coconut flakes - more fat. I was already having a lot, but I give it a chance. Clarified butter, home made mayonnaise, olive oil. - no fruit. no potatoes. no sweet potatoes. I know it is starchy vegetables but after few testing, I think it prevents me from having fat as a fuel. I have started to experience the change on day 28. Very positive, a lot of energy. It is incredible how the same things of my life seems different, just because I feel good. Good interaction with people. No desire to be by myself anymore. Maybe I have been so depressed during te whole 30 because I was in between Carb as fuel and Fat as fuel. That is my guess. I know it is better to wait and see because it is only the third day of improvment. I will keep my diet like that and see.
  4. I am on day 25... in theory... In the reality I found out that my D vitamin had some soya in it after a week and I realized my vinegar had sulfite after 3. I had also some meals in restaurant and I am not really sure there were not butter or sugar added... Before the whole 30 I had small issues with bad moods. As explained in my log, it went worst at the beginning of the whole 30. Around day 16, it was a lot better... Now it's been 3 days and I feel really bad and sad. The only thing I want to do is sleep and be by myself. My husband starts asking when I will stop this diet that makes me so sad and I can understand him. I would like to keep going until christmas since I have eaten soy and sulfite. But it is going to be hard if my mood does not change soon... (By the way, my log is in the forum. "whole 30 in France" Any testimony, advices?
  5. Thank you for the replies. SugarcubeOD : I do not see the link your are referring to in your email? I am a bit confused between non starches and starchy carbs. Can you give me examples? I m afraid my english is too limited
  6. OK I will do that as soon as I have time to write all that. (You can also refer to my log called "Whole 30 in France" where I have started writing down what I eat... hard for me to write the quantity because I use "gr" and not "cup". But I will try anyway. (please note that I have noticed my hair loss a year ago so if it may be related to the food I used to eat, but it is not related to the whole 30 diet of course... And yes I was very stressed by my job last year, and did not have enough iron, zinc, and magnesium. That can be the cause. Maybe it is not related to carb. But since someone in a forum was talking about carb and hair loss, I wanted to ask)
  7. I have reduced my carb quantity since a year and a half. I almost never eat rice, pasta, bread. I eat sometimes potatoes. I try not to eat any sweet like cookies, ice cream and co but sometimes I have cravings. I tend to limit fruits too but have some at least once a day. => I feel very good, more energy than before, better digestion, better sleep. But my mood is very good some day, very bad some others, And I have lost hair. My doctor has seen a lack of iron, zinc, magnesium => I have taken supplements for 2 months. I have read somewhere that too much nuts were not good => I was eating a lot and have reduced now to just few everyday Do you think it can be related to not enough carb in my diet? I am in the middle of my whole 30. I have no weight issue, my objective is to be healthy. Any advice?

    Day 14 and depressed...

    Thank you for your answer Drink : about 1liter of water each, mostly through herbal tea Sleep : more than usually since I have started the program. 8 hours Sport: I walk 30 min a day to go to work and come back and since I do not feel like working out since the beginning of the program, I do not do more. Focusing on what I eat/ do not eat is already a challenge for me. B: 2 eggs, 1 banana, almond butter (1/8 cup) L : cabbages, cucumbers, fennel with olive oil (1/8 cup) chicken breast pineapple(1/2 cup) D : crab (3/4 cup), homemade mayo (1/2cup), carotts and turnip (2 cups) with clarified butter (1 spoon) I had also grapes, nuts and coconut flakes after dinner (I have just realized I was "feeding the dragon" with those and will try to stop that) Thank you

    Day 14 and depressed...

    Hello, I was about to start a new topic : Day 10 and depressed... I did not since have seen Rudyinfante's topics. First of all, I am french, living in France, so excuse any mistake when I write in english. The things I am hopping to change with the Whole 30 is my level of energy, my frequent bad mood and irritation in my hair. I know I have to wait until the end of the program and I was ready for that. However I was no prepared : 1) to be so depressed for no reason (no specific issue in my life right now). I am very negative, I have no patience with my kids, do not want to laugh or smile. Only want to sleep, do nothing and be by myself. It has never happened to me before. - the irritation in my hair are worst. Almost like eczema ... I have read advises that were given to Rudyinfante : starch, vegetables for breakfast and more added fat. I will try to follow that. But if you have any other advises or explanation or words to encourage ... Thanks
