Hi everyone. I've recently learned about Whole30 and I'm considering joining, although to be honest I'm not completely sure. Since the community seems ameniable I thought I would ask your opinion. I'm almost 40, I've always been slightly overweight. After giving birth to my son (4 years ago) and being back to what I consider my normal weight (about 70kg) I decided to start using a contraceptive implant (it seemed so convenient!) but unfortunately I gained A LOT of weight (20kg in 2 years!). I had the %&[email protected] thing removed, and I have not gained any more weight since then - but I have not been able to lose weight eiher. My overall health is very good, so to be honest my only reason to go on a diet is losing weight. Which I understand is not the purpose of the program. But because I don't think "eating in moderation" is my thing (and for that reason I've never been in a proper diet before) I started researching about dictating myself some clear boundaries in which I could base my diet, so I would not need to count calories or count on my non-existent moderation. No-sugar would be my cornerstone, and I was considering a no-grain rule as well, when I found the Whole program. It's a bit tighter than I meant, but maybe because of that it would force me to eat in a more wholesome way? My routine already includes meal planning, buying fresh food daily, cooking from scratch (I love cooking) so only the ingredient restrictions scare me a bit. I'm hesitating. I got the book but I haven't started reading it yet. I want to lose weight and I want to do it in a healthy way, but I'm not sure if this is the way I should go. Advice please!
