lori_vt Posted October 28, 2013 Share Posted October 28, 2013 Thankfully I started this journey with Well Fed in my kitchen, and I spent a lot of time reading the recipes and buying the ingredients before I started. I printed out the timeline thinking it would help me get through the rough days based on the reports of the thousands who went before me. However, odd as it sounds, I have not had one bad day. Not one. My irritable moments during the W30 are the same as before (impatience at drivers or long lines, etc). The hardest part for me is changing my eating template from 5-6 small healthy meals to 3 large meals without snacks. I found that I needed to plan in a small snack for the first few days until I could adjust to the larger consumption in one meal. I still don't like how all that food feels in my stomach and would prefer to eat smaller more frequent meals. I'm not sure I understand the logic behind it (maybe I missed the rationale on the website somewhere...) but my training in sports nutrition strongly emphasized frequent small meals - keeps metabolism higher, healthier, etc. If someone could explain the WHY of eating 3 meals only, I would appreciate it. I may have to invest in Well Fed 2 for the second half of my W30, although I can't imagine getting tired of these recipes anytime soon. Had chili w/cocoa, jicama "potato" salad, roasted asparagus and belly-dance beet salad for lunch. Not sure about supper yet, but spent 8 hours on my cook-up yesterday. Have Moroccan meatballs, The Best Chicken You'll Ever Have, Meat and Spinach Muffins, and Pork Carnitas in my fridge, along with cocoa-cauliflower, cumin roasted carrots, garlicky-ginger colcannon (not from Well-Fed). And there are a few others I wanted to cook up, but ran out of time. I have never enjoyed my food as much as now! I even tried an apple "porridge" on Sunday morning (instead of my usual pancakes), and 3 dates made it too sweet I almost couldn't eat it. I think the coconut milk, chia seeds, almond butter, cinnamon, pecans and apple would have been fine without the dates. Has anyone else heard of someone going through the Whole 30 without any complaints/tough spots, etc? I hope I'm not going to hit the wall sometime in the next 20 days...
