pdeets22 Posted December 14, 2013 Share Posted December 14, 2013 Hi all, I have just finished up my first Whole30. I felt really great throughout the month and didn't really experience any of the symptoms that the timeline suggestedâ€¦.I always felt like I was doing something wrong since I didn't! I was very strict and did not sway off the plan whatsoever. I just weighed myself and took my measurements and to say I am disappointed is an understatement. I gained a pound AND almost all of my measurements were up 1/2 - 1 inch! I have about 20 pounds to lose so this is very discouraging. I knew it wasn't going to be good since my clothes didn't feel any different. I am also very active. I teach Spin 4 days a week. I was doing Barre classes at the beginning of this on my off days from Spin and then the past 2 weeks I have switched to Crossfit. I would try to do some running too. I always had my Post-Workout Meal of either chicken or egg whites, sometimes with sweet potato, if I had them available. Prior to this, I have been working with a dietician for about a year now because nothing seems to be working. I have always been pretty healthy, I thought that this Whole30 would kind of give me the push to get healthier. This is just kind of devastating and don't know where to go from hereâ€¦Did I do something wrong?? Here is an example of a typical day for me: Breakfast: Kale, onion sautÃ©ed with ghee and 2 eggs, over a little bit of sweet potato Coconut Flakes with some macadamia nuts and half a banana Lunch: Ground turkey, olive oil, zucchini squash, onion, peppers, broccoli with turmeric and garlic. 1/2 avocado Carrots Pre-Workout: 1 egg, sometimes with some cashews Post-Workout: Chicken or egg whites, sometimes sweet potato Dinner: Roasted brussel sprouts and broccoli with olive oil Chicken/Beef/Salmon with sautÃ©ed zucchini squash, onions, mushrooms or whatever veggies I have in coconut oil Olives Apple Sorry for the length of thisâ€¦any help would be greatly appreciated!
