    Starting my Whole 30 January 2013

    Hi, all. I'm Christina and I'll be starting my Whole 30 on January 1 along with many of you. I have a disorder called Lipedema, which affects how my body metabolizes and uses and stores fat and carbs. It's characterized by a disproportionate body - lower body larger than upper body - with other issues tossed in there making weight loss difficult. I'd already adjusted my diet to cut out wheat and sugar to slow down the inflammatory responses with this disorder, so it's time now to start the next step. In my mind, the next step is paleo and the Whole 30 seems to be a good way for me to slow inflammation, reset my metabolism, and get a clean starting point to see how various foods truly affect me. I'm not in this for weight loss as this disorder keeps me from losing weight via conventional means. My main goal is to return to my endocrinologist in February and be told I'm no longer insulin resistant. Any weight loss will be a bonus, and I'll go into February slowly adding some foods back in - but not wheat or sugar - to see how they affect my body.
