kerry o Posted November 16, 2013 Share Posted November 16, 2013 yes, i did. i did the whole 30 back in october while smoking organic hand-rolled cigarettes and drinking too much black tea. i consider it to have been a big success: a beginning. and it still worked miracles- i was able to break the habit of binge eating at night and then actually stopped smoking about 10 days after the official finish (while still eating mostly W30). i found that the "sugar dragon" still had a hold on me; those cups of tea with honey added back in put me on the roller coaster again. and i a few days ago i had that piece of chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream that was dangling like a carrot before my eyes the whole time. is it possible to be truly free from cravings and food obsessions? i was ready to give up as i felt myself getting bloated again, drinking too much caffeine and craving chocolate, and then i realized that, of course, now is not the time to quit but to build on the successes i've already had- my eating has been transformed and i have no problem staying away from any number of things like bread and dairy. so now, go to the next level and do the low-histamine W30. see if i can get rid of the almost daily hives (and get off the benadryl) and put the sugar dragon to sleep. no more caffeine on an empty stomach. i'd like to learn to enjoy the peace and steady energy from being well-nourished. wish me luck.
