My wife and I are doing this because as we (especially I) have aged, we are finding more aches, pains, and issues then we have had in the past. I am a 20-30 mile a week runner and feel my eat anything diet has caught up with me. Wish us luck, day 3 and I am full but tired.
Barbie M posted a topic in Join the Whole30Well, I think the Title and Tags say it all but, at the risk of being redundant, I find myself at the kitchen table, once again trying to determine a strategy to get this old bod back into bikini shape. HAHAHA. Not really. Just fitting back into my jeans would be a start, though; looking good in my riding pants would be amazing. I've done the Whole 30 once before, for 42 days actually, and I remember that I thought it was great at the time. I was never able to repeat or maintain that level of commitment and eventually gave up. I'm not sure I'll be able to this time either but I do know that I can probably do it for 30 (or maybe even 42) days. If anybody else finds themselves in similar circumstances to me and wants to start tomorrow or thereabouts, join me! They say Misery loves company, but I find that Happiness can't live without it. And I'm wondering if I could do better on this program with an online friend or two?
Hello everyone! I started my Whole30 last week, so today is day 7. My daughter is doing her second Whole30, and is very encouraging. I have fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, hypertension, chronic migraines, Geri and depression and I'm very excited to see what health benefits I can reap from this gastric re-boot. I actually took about two weeks before I started to wean myself from sugars. I stopped grains and dairy cold turkey, but cut back on stevia and hidden sugars gradually. With my chronic Fibro pain, I wanted to minimize the Carb Flu if I could. After a week of tummy troubles, I have had more energy and less brain fog - a big improvement in quality of life! That has made it possible to exercise more, which is also a big help. Pain level has remained about the same so far. I'd love to hear from anyone who has similar health issues, or is a bit on the older side like me.
