Woof woof! Yesterday was the last day of my first Whole 30 and I'm starting my post whole 30 log/thingymabob straight away because it's June 1 and the tidiness of it pleases me. I had a good Whole 30 overall. To the best of my knowledge I didn't slip up foodwise. I ate lots of veggies and worked out different ways to cook them (I'm half Chinese - used to put soy sauce on EVERYTHING). I tried new things. I cooked with liver for the first time. I am growing my own SCOBY for kombucha brewing (and am still slightly concerned I will wake up one morning to find it has climbed out of its jar, come to the bedroom and is going to to ask me if it can have a snack or something). Apart from a few days' slump in the middle my energy levels were good, and the tummy issues that came with it were most likely related to an increased dose in my eczema medication. No headaches or mad cravings. I have "met" so many awesome, cool and crazy people. You guys are the nicest online community I have ever been a part of. My one gripe is that I didn't lose any weight. I actually put on about 2 pounds. (Just under a kilo). I know I shouldn't focus on this too much and I am trying not to. All the positives definitely outweigh (pun most definitely intended) this. I want to continue eating this way, and I am very happy to report that I woke up this morning still very much in Whole 30 mode. I like eating this way, so we'll just keep on keeping on and will see what happens next! Here are some numbers: - I'm 30 years old, 5,2 and about 128.5 lb (58.3 kg). - current exercise is teaching 2 Zumba classes a week And my goals over the next 30 days: - Include some exercise everyday (e.g. a half-hour Zumba practice at home or a 45 minute walk) - Continue following the Whole 30 template for all meals I prepare at home, bar the occasional dessert with Whole 30 compliant ingredients (no more than once a week). - Reintroduce dairy, sugar and wheat over the next couple of weeks with sole purpose of identifying any reactions. (Not so I can start eating them again regularly - see next goal). - Restrict off-roading to meals out/eaten at friends' houses. - Reduce nuts and fruit. - Completely cut out snacking. - More bone broth as go-to hot drink, less tea with coconut milk. I think that seems reasonable. Looking forward to the next phase of my journey! Thanks everyone who stuck with me Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
