giovannalt Posted October 17, 2013 Share Posted October 17, 2013 Hello Whole30-ers! I'm planning on starting the Whole30 combined with my currentish KetoPaleo diet. (This past week has been crazy, so not actually following at the moment but I have been mostly doing a diet for the past month and a bit.) Most of you probably won't know what I'm talking about, as it's a paid service, and I'm not going to advertise for them here but for those of you who know what I'm talking about please let me know! It's basically a support system (plus amazing food tracking/macro calculating website) where you plug in the foods you're going to eat for the day and it'll let you know if your macros are correct. It's keto so pretty low on carbs and high on fats, but I found it easy enough to follow when I wasn't unprepared and hungry. I reeeeeally liked the website because I didn't have to count calories or macros. I did a few tests by plugging in my food in MFP and found I was ranging between 800-900 calories per day - lots of fat though, so I wasn't hungry most of the time. Fruit wasn't allowed (except for tomatoes, bell peppers, and avocados) which was probably the hardest part for me, but it got easier over time (until I cheated and started craving sugar all the time again. I'm pretty short, 5ft 3", and when I registered for KetoPaleo they asked me to measure my wrist (I think 5 1/2 or 5 3/4 inches) and apparently I'm supposed to have a smallish frame. Has anyone done this? I've been a bit chubby my entire life but my sister's super thin (in a she-looks-sick kind of way, but still). Based on my body fat percentage (Navy), I'm obese, but will be doing measurements Saturday morning so I can share details then. Note: I don't look obese. I weight around 130lbs. But I carry too much weight in my belly (which is a health risk, I know), and it went down drastically when I was following the KetoPaleo diet without cheating. I think a major reason is that a ) I'm lactose intolerant, and I suspect I have a lot of other intolerances like sugars and b ) I ignore the fact that eating some stuff makes me feel like crap and I eat it anyways. So I'm perma-bloated. One more note: I'm starting to take some homeopathic medicine for my tummy issues, but I forgot them at home today so I'll also post their details next time. My grandpa's a homeopathic doctor and he had it made up especially for me, so we'll see if that helps in addition to eating better. I'll be prepping meals over the next couple of days to get started, but if anyone has any advice for me, I'm all ears. And low-carb recipes would be awesome as well! Giovanna PS. Since I'll be keto-fying this diet, please don't tell me to add fruits, nuts, coconut, etc. to my diet, and keep in mind that I'll probably be eating more fat than some people. This way of eating has worked for me, but I understand it's not for everyone... so don't criticize me just because you haven't tried it/it doesn't work for you!
