AmyShubi Posted January 3, 2014 Share Posted January 3, 2014 This will be my second ("all-in") try at a whole 30. The first time I tried one was last July 2012 and I fell off the wagon after 2 weeks and had terrible stomach cramps and diarrhea for days. At first I was so mad at myself for starting the Whole 30 to begin with. But then I remembered that after the first few days I started to feel like I had a strong inner-strength. I walked taller, and was proud of my eating choices. I don't remember how I slipped up anymore, but I'm hoping that participation in this forum will give me the motivation and support I need to get through my January Whole 30. I have been "primal/paleo" since recovering from that July experience, but have had occasional dairy and other non-paleo foods for holidays/celebrations. I think that this has been good practice for my second Whole 30. Here is a sample of what types of meals I am going to be eating for my whole 30. My biggest worry is getting enough calories and feeling of "fullness" from each meal so I have less cravings and snacks between meals. Breakfast- Sweet Potato Hash, Eggs, and some zucchini or cauliflower soup (from well fed 2). Then optional fruit after I've eaten everything else. Lunch- Tuna, Chicken, or Turkey Salad with homemade salad dressing. I have homemade ranch now (olive oil, lemon, and egg) With the salads I will include some combination of lettuce, protein, cucumber slices, onion, tomatoes, and shredded carrots with the homemade dressing. Then optional fruit after I've eaten everything else. Dinner- Roast or Stew with carrots, white potato substitute (sweet potatoes or parsnips), Celery, Onion, Coconut Oil (?) with side of broccoli or spinach. I'm going to eat the broccoli or spinach first because it won't be very easy to eat at the end of a wonderful roast. Then optional fruit after I've eaten everything else.
