Background: First W30 completed July 21. Weaned my 14 month old towards the end of June. Began training for a marathon June 28th. Life Before Whole 30: I ate what I thought was healthy...a lot of fruits and veggies but also relied heavily on grains! I was a carb addict, partly because I thought that was what I needed to improve my running performance. I ran my first half-marathon in April and averaged 15-20 miles per week. Problem: During the W30 challenge I noticed my pants were falling off of me..woohoo a NSV! However, I seemed to have developed a "mummy tummy" and almost look like I'm 3 months pregnant again. I did full body measurements and there was really no change there either, which seemed odd. Full disclosure--I have not done well with the no snacking and have found myself reaching for the nuts and raisins a little too often. Typical day: 6-8h of sleep. I run early in the morning, usually by 7:00am, averaging 15-20 miles per week. M1: 3 eggs unless it's a long run day, I usually eat a hard boiled egg with some guac. Post run I'll have protein and sweet potato or butternut squash. M2: a salad filled with veggies and some form of protein, M3: protein and veggies Has anyone had a similar experience? I'm not sure whether to attribute the weight gain to weaning, or diastis recti, or training, or snacking or if I need to shoot for a Whole 60 instead.
So my little girl is 8 months and just starting to want real food. we aren't pushing solids but are offering them whenever she asks, usually while we're eating our meals. We really want to start her out on the right foot and I am completely opposed to baby cereal since I think it is nutritionally useless. She's still breastfeeding, has never been on formula and never will if I have my way. So my question is, for those who have gone through this before, which foods have you offered first when starting solids for a Whole9 lifestyle? We've done fruits and some veg puree mixes but i want her to have some variety in flavor experiences and most foods have way too much fruit and not enough greens as far as i am concerned.
