Bocage222 Posted October 17, 2013 Share Posted October 17, 2013 My husband and I quit at the end of day 9. We have the cookbook "Well Fed" and LOVE all of the food. We also have a 7.5 month old daughter that I am nursing. The straw that broke the camels back was the 3rd time I did not have enough milk in my breasts to comfort and fill her. I am a pediatric nurse and I am aware that it's a supply and demand and stay hydrate blah blah. Around day 4 or 5 I added an extra meal or full snack to help. I honestly was surprised that I did enjoy this way of eating. My kitchen however looked like thanksgiving just hit it every minute of the day, I was losing play time with my precious baby, and losing an minute of couple time we could have had prepping and such. I think maybe we overcomplicated it? I also am not really into meat and for 33 years I've eaten carbs, and carbs, with a side of carbs before a candy bar. I must say that we learned a ton. I also spent literally hundreds, more than hundreds of dollars at the grocery in those 9 days. That being said, my husband now takes lunch to work, I love coconut oil and milk, we both like cauliflower mashed better than mashed potatoes...Did we stop too soon. Is there a way to do this where it isn't consuming all of our time and money and destroying our kitchen? We were all in until I couldn't feed the baby. That for me was a dealbreaker the 3rd time it happened. I know people said it would come back, but waiting and seeing with a hungry child was not an option. Advice?!
