ElleBean Posted November 14, 2013 Share Posted November 14, 2013 I'm on day 11 of the whole30 and while I do feel pretty good and don't want to give up,. I find myself having a hard time with my job as a baker. How the hell can I make something without taste testing it?? I have to make a dessert for 26 people tonight and I'm scared to do it because its always been important to taste what I make. It doesn't mean eating an entire cupcake but I need to know if the buttercream tastes good or not. I can usually rely on my family as a second opinion but they aren't foodies so most things taste pretty good to them. I'm torn between wanting to allow myself to taste test (in a way that wouldn't be enough to add lbs) and keep with the principles of the whole30 for a lifestyle change, or just sticking with the program all the way through. I can see myself eating like this for a long time, while allowing cheats on occasion, so do I really have to finish the program to be successful or will following the whole30 99% of the time be enough? I've lost 4lbs already which is great because I've gotten past my weight loss plateu and at 148 lbs and 5'6 it's not exactly life or death obesity. I guess what I'm looking for is some advice or guidance from the whole9 community. What should be more important right now...health (very important obviously), or my reputation as a Paris trained baker and the high expectations that come with that?
