Starting over! :)


Recommended Posts

Good evening all, I started on July 8th and had to start over again on July 10th. Since then I have signed up for the daily emails and have printed out the Dinning guide which has been very helpful.

Sugar has always been a part of my life, so obviously it is going to take me some time to get use to not having it. My purpose for doing the Whole30 is for me to eventually not eat sugar the way I normally would and to be in control of how I take care of what goes in my body, more or less having more control over myself and the decisions I make.


Between yesterday being my first day and today my second, I have felt the withdrawal symptoms of having no sugar. It is very uncomfortable, I felt anxious all day yesterday and today I have had a headache all day. Normally I also take a lot of Ibuprofen an Advil and I haven't for the past few days, which is a good start. Basically I have decided to not lose track and just remind myself that this will be a great success in the end. 


Here are my meals for the past two days, and yes I eat almost the same thing every day, but I am trying to incorporate more into my intake.


July 10:

Breakfast-- 2 Eggs and ½ Avocado (forgot the Veggies)

Lunch: Sweet Potatoe, Broccoli and Chicken Breast and a cup of Coconut milk.

Dinner: Sweet Potatoe, Broccoli and Chicken Breast (added watermelon also)


July 11, 2013

Breakfast: 2 Eggs and ½ Avocado (forgot the Veggies again)

Lunch: Sweet Potatoe, Broccoli and Chicken Breast, Coconut milk and Watermelon

Dinner: Shrimp, Avocado and Sweet Potatoe (little bit of Coconut Milk and cinnamon)



I hope everyone is hanging in there and I will be back tomorrow evening to give you an update.

having cravings for sugary things is hard - but they do go away!! using less pain relief is fantastic!


i'd really suggest having a huge variety of veggies to get a wide range of nutrients. this should help with the cravings. different protein sources are also important, so try and change it up at each meal if you can.
