This is the first time I have ever joined/posted to any forum. It has never really interested me to get into online conversations, but I have found a lack of support/information on breastfeeding and doing the Whole30. I think I have found one woman that blogged about completing a Whole30 and maintaining her milk supply. So here I am, ending Day 4 of my 3rd Whole30. Let me add that I have started many of Whole30’s since my first try/completion, but have only managed to complete it one other time. The last one I started I ended of pregnant (didn’t think we could have children) 9 months before our wedding date! My doctor advised me to quit so that I was not restricting the baby from a “balanced diet” and the stress of removing food. (To this day, I wish I wouldn’t have listened) I ended up going off the rails for my entire pregnancy and maternity leave. I ended up gaining 4o lbs (I do not know how it wasn’t more) I was already 10 lbs over weight when I got pregnant. I have yoyo’d back and forth with healthy life and then binge on everything I want life. I am from New Orleans and work on the French Quarter so temptation is EVERYWHERE. It’s culturally engrained in you to drink with family, friends, co-workers. It’s just what you do. When I am to go grab a drink, and I tell them I’m on the Whole30 you should see the looks I get! People try to talk me out of it, tell me I’m crazy, tell me how they absolutely could not give up drinking for 30 days. Honestly, quitting drinking and eating sugary treats, creamy coffees, and fried food- I have never felt better in my life. Probably the same reason I keep coming back to the reset. I recently started to listen to Melissa Hartwig’s book, Food Freedom, while I make my hour and fifteen minute commute to work. But enough about my back story! My current situation is I want to live a healthy lifestyle and not be emotionally attached to food and alcohol. I want to continue to breastfeed my child and worry about my milk supply tanking as a result. I wonder what other women are experiencing. Am I alone out there ? Anyone else trying our Whole30 while breastfeeding and working full time ?
Hi y'all! So I am heading to a wedding about 4 hours from home next weekend, and staying the night with some friends. I'm planning to eat before the ceremony, and have some nuts or avocado handy during, but I'm not sure what to do about packing food for the next day. We're staying in an Air BnB and planning on probably eating out the next day, but not until lunch time since everyone else will be hungover (I'm the DD. They took advantage of my Whole30 REAL QUICK). I don't know what to bring for breakfast that can safely sit in my car for 10+hours (driving, ceremony, reception, driving again) and be eaten for breakfast. I got a cooler but I'm a little concerned it won't keep eggs or tuna cold enough, and I don't want to spend the weekend living on Larabars. I don't want to eat Larabars/RX Bars at all actually, since I have serious sugar addiction and I don't want my "sugar dragon" to think I'm feeding it. Any ideas? Thanks!
