marnieb Posted August 14, 2013 Share Posted August 14, 2013 Hello! I'm starting whole30 tomorrow (when the shopping gets delivered). I'm in my 20s and from Australia. A couple of years ago I did Sarah Wilson's I Quit Sugar program and was sugar (fructose) free for over a year, and paleo for about six months of that time. I felt really wonderful, then I fell pregnant with my second bebe and couldn't stand savoury food or protein and went sugar crazy. Somehow, I only put on 1kg my whole pregnancy, but have really stacked it on since then. Since my son was born 7 months ago, I've jumped on and off the paleo wagon, mainly due to exhaustion - let's face it, sometimes it IS easier to just order a pizza and wait for it to arrive while you lay on the lounge. I lost ~20kg with paleo but I still I fall into the 'morbidly obese' category. Weight loss is always a bit of a motivator, but that's not why I'm doing w30 at all. I realised this week that I feel significantly unwell. My body hurts. The last 3 weeks I have had diarrhea twice, nausea and vomiting, two colds. My eyes hurt. My back hurts. I'm tired. I'm dizzy. I feel bloated. My head feels fuzzy. I have no motivation or energy. And I know this is a direct result of my food choices. Not from being up several times a night with a baby or chasing a very energetic 2.5 year old. It's the food. I know this and I know it needs to change. NOW. So here I am... ready to shake things up and get back to where I was when my body was in its natural state of complete health. Goodbye, food intolerances and sensitivities! Goodbye, lack of energy! Goodbye, bloating! Happy to be part of the community. M Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
