Hi! I desperately want (need) to both change my diet AND quit smoking. In Food Freedom Forever it says to focus on quitting smoking first if you're still a smoker. The thing is, I relapse on cigarettes frequently (I've smoked for well over half my life) and I don't want to wait until I'm successfully quit to change my problematic eating behaviors and diet. I don't understand why this should be an either/or thing. I mean, isn't doing the Whole 30, even as a smoker, better than eating three bowls of cereal for dinner every night and still being a smoker on top of it? I'm weary of quitting smoking at the exact same time as starting my Whole 30 because I have a history of binging/food addiction, which I've even been in 12-step program for in the past. So needless to say, changing my diet is NOT easy for me. I'm afraid I'd be setting myself up for failure if I were to try both simultaneously. Thoughts? Should I go ahead and start, or wait until I'm quit for awhile?
I'm just about as crabby as one can get. This is my first whole30 and the day I started I also... er... started. This is the end of day 5. My hormones are going crazy, my body is trying to adapt to the lack of refined sugar and nicotine, and I can fully understand the title in the timeline "kill all the things". I think my period is coming to an end and I know there's a light at the end of this tunnel, but right now I really want to scream until I run out of breath and pass out. I'm also the mother of a wonderful, loving, brilliant little five year old. ...Please don't call DFCS, but I want to wrap him up in duct tape. He's a very obedient kid and he's not doing anything wrong, but even as he's quietly playing "ninja" in the living room I feel my head pounding and I'm... dear God, I'm twitching. A five year old- especially one without siblings- requires so much attention and energy and I don't think there's enough coffee in the world to put me on his level. Moms, tips? ...Please?
