Skepticallytrying posted a topic in Success StoriesHello my fellow W30-ers! It's seems a bit late in the W30 process (Day 23 woot!!) to come to this realization, but I think I've finally conquered my off & on bloat, particularly in the evening, as well as decreased my need for an afternoon snack of nuts... * Adding just a bit of extra fat at lunch: 1/2 an avocado (in addition, to a healthy dousing of olive oil on top of my salad), lasted me 4 - 5 hours until dinner!!! Today, I had no need to munch on hazelnuts or cashews in between!!! After dinner, I was full but not feeling uber bloated!! **The INCREASE of good fat at a meal, results in a DECREASED need for snacks!** This is CLEARLY stated in ISWF, as well as listed in several posts on this forum, but until I experienced persistent bloat & experimented w/my food, it didn't sink in!!! Oh, silly me!!! But, anyway, I'm still happy to report my 'discovery'!
So, I am part of a tough love whole30 forum on Facebook, and another member and I were having a disagreement about volume of food. Background: I did a Whole30 in April'13 and lost 12 pounds effortlessly. I then got pregnant (yay!) and had my baby in Feb '14. I started what ended up being a Whole51 on May 19. I only lost 4 pounds. Looking back at what I was eating, I'm pretty sure my issues were: 1) Too much Fruit and 2) TOO MUCH FOOD. This other member suggests that you eat until you are hungry (got it) and if you are still hungry, eat ANOTHER MEAL on the template - she has had great success (lost 85 pounds) but she also started somewhere around 300 pounds. My start weight at the beginning of my '14 Whole30 was 183. My position is that it is entirely possible to eat too much of the right foods, which will hamper weight loss. Unlimited food is NOT part of the template - which I know was my issue this spring. The reason I am asking here is because in our forum, people are asking for help trouble shooting, and her answer is always "You aren't eating enough". I don't think that IS always the answer.
