Greetings Whole 30 Forum- I am starting the Whole 30 on Monday and am excited and scared all at the same time! Please share any words of encouragement, tips, recipes that you love, etc with me- I would really appreciate it!
Very excited to try Whole30 starting on 10/1! I will be reading the materials today and tomorrow and getting in my groceries and meal prep so I’ll be able to do this! My colleague joined and lost 7 to 8 pounds and said she feels much better. I need to hit my personal reset button. I used to work out almost everyday and in the past few months have gained five or so pounds and completely stopped working out and making my health a priority. My grandfather passed away in May, my job has been very difficult, and just a few weeks ago my father had a cancer operation and they had to remove a large part of his tongue. He will be unable to eat again for a few months. As his caregiver the last thing I want to do is eat anything in front of him especially anything that people often crave or have intense smells like bacon, cookies, and all the fun stuff! I look forward to being by his side and helping him through his recovery while helping myself as well. Here’s to starting Whole30!
This has been a crazy year. Whew. I went from the strongest I've ever been in my life, Olympic Weightlifting and Crossfit, to using a Walker to navigate and not being able to take 2 stairs at a time. I found out I have Crohn's via a massive peri-rectal fistula which required a temporary diverting colostomy (as well as several other surgeries and still more to come). I'm still healing/ recovering after being in the hospital for more than a month. All of this occurred while listing my house of 15 years (um... stress management?), and the super scary prospect of not finding my new home in this crazy spring market. I'm currently living in my camper, but thankfully close on my new house on 8/2. Great time to clear out the kitchen and start new habits! While most doctors, including my own, can't definitively say what foods are negative to Crohn's, I believe there are foods that have an exceptionally strong impact on my health and disease. I was loosely following Whole30/paleo lifestyle before I got sick and I noticed a vast improvement in how I felt when eating "right". So. I've decided to commit to myself to learn about my disease and diet and what works best with MY body. I know it will be tough (I'm definitely an emotional eater), but I MUST do this if I want to live an active and healthy life.
