I will be starting (restarting) this elimination protocol on Ash Wednesday and continuing all the way thru to the day before Easter. March 6 thru April 20 is a Whole46. I hope there will be a few of us starting at the same time, but feel free to jump in at any time, wherever you are in your journey. I hope we can share recipes, successes, trials and NSV's. As well as eliminating everything that is required to avoid during a Whole30 I will also be giving up coffee. I don't seem to be able to handle it anymore. 2 cups and I have the jitters really bad. I've switched to decaf and it's only slightly better. It's really more of a habit than a need. I don't NEED the coffee. (Yeah right, keep telling yourself that.) Welcome all!
This is my third attempt. Usually I can't get past days 3-5 due to the headaches and sugar flu. This time so far so good, and on day 17. Food is boring but trying to be creative. First week wasn't as bad this time. Headaches were manageable, sugar cravings weren't playing games with my mood. Perhaps because this time I was more prepared and ready to keep our kitchen positive and stocked. Biggest thing week one was sleepiness, fatigue and lack of appetite. Second week, lots of inflamation/swelling and pants tight, along with some moodiness. About day 13 started feeling better, not joyous but not as fatigued. I'm still sleeping almost 9-10 hours a night and slow to rise. Day 16 started swelling again, and realized I haven't been drinking enough water. I'm terrible at remembering that. Very hopeful I can make it through 30 days. Weighed in at 144, haven't weighed that since being 9 months pregnant. Looking forward to stepping on the scale March 31st. Am also doing a blood work up next week while I'm eating these wholefoods, and will see how that looks.
