Jtandi Posted October 17, 2013 Share Posted October 17, 2013 I need some hubby troubleshooting. seriously. for me whole30 is not a problem, and truthfully I can eat the same thing for an entire week if I make it and it's yummy. I eat eggs and hash for breakfast every morning. this is somewhat old hat for me since I was with the group that did a whole100 starting last January 1, did another 30 in June, and started my last one October 1. (this one will actually be a whole50 since that brings me to the day before my 40th birthday)...so I have about 150 days of whole30 under my belt this year so far... this time my HUSBAND said he would join me! I cannot tell you how ecstatic I am, he has mood issues and I have always know that food is a huge part of it (we are both sugar addicts). SO, I have been doing all the cooking/etc, but he is sick of the food. seriously tired of it (he says). he doesn't want any more eggs for breakfast and doesn't want leftovers or other food. this past week he had a work function and they went to a Thai restaurant (of all the places to go...) and he ate off plan. his mood was horrible the next day (super asshole of the year) and I think he finally got it. up until that day his mood has been better than it has ever been in our 14 years of marriage. but now I'm really worried he's going to quit. SO, here's where I need help and opinions. I want him to finish his 30 days (despite the "bump") with adding a little more time at the end. I am thinking of "allowing" him some paleofied foods...making him some paleo pancakes/etc. obviously without any sweeteners/etc (only whole30 approved ingredients). as I said before, I am somewhat of a whole30 veteran. I KNOW THAT THIS IS NOT ALLOWED ON A WHOLE30 (so please don't say "you're not supposed to eat that on a whole30...") but just need opinions. I love Robin's post about not overthinking this, and I am wanting to broaden this a bit to ensure that he can make it through. I have already "allowed" him to have nuts/dried fruit/etc. this is a guy who works nights in an busy ER and was drinking 2 or 3 Rockstar a night, coming home with McDonalds in the AM. he hasn't read the book, doesn't come on the forum, etc, and he's not going to (I know him well enough to know this). I know the decision is ultimately mine (he basically just relies on me for info, etc) but I always love to have opinions and, I guess, in some way "permission"...anyways... let me know what you think (especially if you agree with me!)
