It's almost here!!! Starting my 1st round of W30 on January 1st with a coworker! I've been researching and preparing. I have 4 weeks of meals all planned out including grocery lists. Can't wait to get rid of my sugar cravings and to see if eliminating some of these things will help with my inflammation. I'm 44 years old with 3 almost grown teenage girls. One is in college, one is a senior, and the other a junior! Stress is a constant in my life but I am working on it.
I'm really looking forward to starting my first Whole 30 for January 2020! My doctor recommended it as a way to figure out what parts of my diet may be increasing my autoimmune symptoms. I did the AIP diet earlier this year but didn't experience any relief (because I was suffering from a second autoimmune disease which hadn't been diagnosed or treated yet). I would love to hear from anyone who has seen great success with their autoimmune symptoms by taking on the Whole30. My diet isn't crazy, but this will definitely be difficult after overly indulgent holidays, so any success stories will serve as great reminders for me when the going gets tough!
Goodmorning! I have officially completed the audiobook and have begun my Whole30 journey. I started paying attention to my cravings and what triggered them while listening to the book and sugar dragon is an understatement for me. I have never been so scared of the craving as I did when I consciously did not choose the sweets for a few weeks and had cake at a baby shower without completely following the system. It was a demon of a craving that hurt my chest and I sadly succumbed too but holy cow it was a scary feeling the need my body made me feel for carrot cake of all things. This morning I had a scramble of two eggs, peppers, kale, carrots, olives. Then my coffee with almond unsweetened creamer. If I am following the 3 meals every 4-5 hours. I will be eating lunch around 10 am and dinner before I leave work. . . that isn't practical for my lifestyle. Any tips from some 8-5 ers out there that rise early but have scheduled lunch hours?? ** side note. . . I work at a computer and have had a tendency to mindless munch in the past, so that is something else I am trying to overcome.
