Shelley Posted June 17, 2013 Share Posted June 17, 2013 This is my third Whole30, but my first log. My first Whole30 last fall was quite successful. The highlights? I lost 9.4 lbs and slept like a baby (giving up coffee may have helped with that as well). I hadn't felt that good in a long time! I was a vegan for a year until I jumped off the wagon. I was struggling to lose the 15 lbs I had gained back after losing 100 lbs with Weight Watchers (not as a vegan). I felt bloated all the time. So I decided to try the Paleo diet. I had never felt at such peace with food. I wasn't obsessed with it all the time and I just ate when I needed to. This past February, I decided to go back to veganism. I have heart disease in my family, and I was a little concerned about the amount of meat I was eating. But veganism has not worked for me. It doesn't work for my body and I am unhappy. I have gained back the weight I lost during my time following the Paleo diet, and even though I have been working out with a trainer for the past 6 weeks, I have been struggling to lose weight. I started back on the Paleo diet about a month ago, and want to take it a step further now. So here I am again, and there's no going back. As much as I feel bad for the animals, I've decided I care more about my happiness and health. No alcohol, no sugar, no grains, no dairy, no legumes, no coffee, no soy, nuts only in my cooking, antibiotic/hormone free/organic meat, aim for 7-8 hours of sleep, exercise 5-6 times per week. Today is Day 1. Wish me luck! Feel free to offer me tips and encouragement! DAY 1 Breakfast: 3 eggs, scrambled in ghee with sausage meat and 3/4 Mexican sausage Lunch: 3 small chicken drumsticks, sweet potato medallions, fried in olive oil Dinner: Baked salmon fillet with lemon & pepper, baked brussel sprouts and broccoli Snack: 1 cup raspberries, 3 pecans Water: 2L No exercise today as I am home sick with a cold! I'm wondering if it's because I ate cheese and pasta over the weekend for the first time in a long time.... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
