    Puckertoe 3rd Whole30

    Can't flippin edit after 15 mins... So here's the rest of what I was writing when I edited it. Feeling shit this morning and haven't even started. Husband gave me milk in my tea.... Great start. Got him to bring me a cup of camomile instead. What do I want to get out of Whole 30 this time? Gain control around food. Get rid of a lot if inflammation, shoulders, back, legs are all really painful these days. It would be nice to stop getting reflux. Start feeling positive about myself image. Triggers for me are Anything vaguely sweet, but not sweet potatoes as I think they are revolting. Being around people eating sweet things Alcohol isn't a problem, I can take it or leave it. Feeling stressed is a big trigger for comfort foods like puddings Going shopping when hungry or without a list. Things I know don't agree with my constitution. Wheat. Sugar. Other thoughts. Eggs are a suspect allergen for me. I'm considering doing a egg free Whole 30. Legumes are perhaps a real food, they aren't a trigger food. I don't do dips hummus and chips / Crisps etc. In fact I've been reading the ideas that our bodies require a little of the poisons we call lectins. It trains it, it is a hormetic stressor. Like Hest shock and exercise. I may substitute eggs for legumes, but no dips from them. Use them in casseroles. After all our relationship to food is individual. a whole 30 based on Melissa Hartwigs triggers and food in tolerances will not necessarily be my ideal. Ie, alcohol not a trigger, eggs probably give me indegestion.i cook every meal we eat already mostly from fresh ingredients, so it's not a cookery school, Im 60 and know myself pretty well. It's my 3rd Whole30, so I have an idea what value there is to be had in 30 days of real eating. Not kidding myself or my body.

    Day one. Middle if the night. Got the munchies, feeling blah. I remember my first whole 30 3 years ago and having this same problem at the beginning. I'm being true to my self and keeping faitith the fact that however I feel. I will not starve... Let's face it I've got plenty of flab to fuel my sleep. Worst part will be remembering..... Mindfulness around food.

    Had a very stressful 5 months of builders making new extension. No proper kitchen for 15 weeks. A running injury in er has stopped me getting as much walking and running as I like. A weight gain of 14lb in that time due to stress mainly. So I'm Whole 30 to get my eating back on track. It feels like a positive thing to do.
  7. We have had building going on five months and it's the most stressy event to cope with. Builders need biscuits and tea and constant attention. I have put on a stone in that time. So starting today I begin a Whole 30. I did two in 2016 and have managed to do well with food until this summer. Now I need to get a grip girl. Looking forward to some disciplined food choices.

    The squaffles and fries sound like junk made to look/sound healthy, and SWYPO, Just as easy to boil some potatoes. The salmon sound good though.

    I think that you can be pretty flexible, I live in deepest Cumbria and I suspect my nearest Spaghetti Squash is London! Butternut is fine as a substitute. If you want fancy buy a spiralizer and make butternut noodle and things like courgetti with it. Quite frankly, life is too short to worry.. I just make cubes and eat them with what ever Im eating. Meat is expensive.... I must say that Americans have it easy, with the price of things over there. Here I'm not prepared to spend too much on meat. I but a bit of grass fed on line from Green Pastures... Its not organic but they just dont want to have to pass the prices of an organic certificate on to customers. Its the best meat Ive come across. I "bulk" it out with local butchers meat as you can ask him where it came from. Round here its probably the field behind the house. In a city... get to know a local butcher and you'll get better deal than the supermarket. Don't think that it is practical with meat price being £20 a kilo to buy organic grass fed here. Any lamb is grass fed! beef here too if you ask your butcher for it. above all don't stress about having the right things in the house... there's always Aberdeen angus, good old fashioned lamb,rope grown mussels, prawns, scallops,cabbage, carrots,neeps and tatties! Why buy from half way round the world when Scotland produces magnificent food of its own?

    Heart Rate During Whole 30

    Theory1, if you're eating something you are not tolerating well it raises your HR. Cutting it out on the W30 gives the body chance to stop reacting to it. Theory 2, use HR during the reintroduction phase to understand what foods you react to. So can we test this out?

    British problem. I enjoy my tea..that's Yorkshire Tea. With milk. Other milk substitutes are just Wrong in tea. Hate coffee, dislike fruit teas. They are insipid and overpriced, I'd rather drink water. So what do other people drink? Oh lemon in black tea is OK once in a while, but will rot the enamel on your teeth if drunk by the gallon as I do my tea. Ideas, please.
