Physibeth Posted June 10, 2013 Share Posted June 10, 2013 Well the day is finally here! I've been eating a primarily Paleo diet since I jumped on a 30 day meal plan from Practical Paleo on March 12th but this is going to be my first Whole30. I'm excited! :-) The big changes from my first 30 day challenge will be no grass-fed butter, no natural sugars (which I did very little of during that 30 days), no food logging (I stopped sometime before June 1st), no scale (I weighed myself and hid it on June 1st), and no paleo-fying (which I've done very little of anyway). Between that 30 days and this I've definitely rode my own bike a bit and I rode it a lot this past weekend. Since going Paleo I've lost 12.4 lbs and a lot of inches (I do have a quantifiable number just not with me). I've also slept better, experienced better digestion and less heart burn, my allergies are not as bad, my mood is much more even, my brain isn't foggy in the afternoons, I recover from exercise quicker, and I easily make it between meals without getting hangry. My reason for doing a Whole30: - Reign everything back in so I can do very careful re-introductions and have a better idea of how offroading will possibly effect me. - Improve my sleep further aiming to get 8-9 hours a night preferably with little to no waking. - Improve my digestion more. - Break the need to weigh myself every day and log all my food and focus more on other aspects of health. The plan is to do my 30 days (ending July 9th) take a couple days off while my brother is visiting and then finish out the month of July Whole30 compliant (so a Whole 19 or 20) and then do very careful re-introductions. I don't plan to weigh/measure myself until August 1st. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
