mariebolnous posted a topic in Off track/Staying on trackI did the September Whole30 which was quite an eye opener - so many NSV! Especially my sleep quality has drastically improved, my mood was better, and my energy stayed constant. My psoriasis symptoms slightly improved. I lost 6 lbs which I am happy about. I started reintroduction with a glass red wine and because of that I had a second glass and then I binged chocolate. Quite a learning experience! I went back to Whole30 for three days and then did the reintro with only one glass of wine (I learned something here) which went fine. However, my sleep quality is not as good, my energy fluctuates. I am back to Whole30 since and today is the first day I feel “Whole30-good” again. Now I am wondering if I should extend my Whole30 to 90 days to allow my body more time to heal. I have lost another 3 lbs since and psoriasis symptoms seem to improve gradually. I am ok with cravings; I actually believe I am still in to process of getting used of not having foods that make me binge, like cheese. I am reluctant to introduce other foods because I am afraid to lose all the NSV which are such a tremendous improvement of life quality. On the other side, I worry never to reach “food freedom”. Do you have any advice? Does anyone have a similar experience?
Woohoo!!! Last week I started to experience some non-scale victories. It's too soon to really feel that Tiger Blood level of energy, and I might not even get it and that's ok. My insides (GI system) actually feel better; which means I'm not feeling anything at all. I won't know what is my irritant until reintroduction, but I can wait 16 days. So, one thing that happens and I just assumed was due to age is that when I am sitting for a while (like an hour or more), when I get up to move my feet hurt for the first few steps. The discomfort goes away rather quickly, it's just like working out a kink for a moment. However, I realized last Thursday that after sitting in traffic for about an hour, I stepped out of the car and walked to the door like I had been in the car for 5 minutes; no issues! Also, I don't think I'll ever need or want sweetener in my coffee again. It's actually quite tasty with compliant almond milk creamer.
