Natalie A Posted January 10, 2014 Share Posted January 10, 2014 I'm starting my first (hopefully) start-to-finish Whole30 today. I've tried it several times in the past but for various reasons have never made it to the end. I'm mostly vegetarian. I may have chicken or fish occasionally if I come across something that I know is humanely raised. Those instances, though, are unfortunately few and far between. I do eat eggs. I'm hoping that being active on this forum will keep me motivated to power on. I've been paleo for a while, but I cheat often. I'm caught in a vicious cycle of eating too little for too long, followed by bingeing. I take anti depressants that kill my appetite and make me feel nauseous. I have struggled with my weight for most of my life. At this point I have probably about 10 pounds to lose (not enough to worry about, but if it would finally come off I wouldn't complain about it), but maintain my weight only with an exhausting amount of exercise (5x/week Crossfit and sometimes running too if my weight starts to creep up). I was recently diagnosed with PCOS, which could explain my trouble losing weight, and was told that my insulin resistance will progress to full blown diabetes if I don't keep it in check as I get older. I completely believe in the whole food movement and I am excited to get things underway for real this time. Any support is appreciated, especially from other veggies who might offer some guidance as to how to stay healthy without meat. I'm hoping I can get off of my medications for good and leave the days of insane cardio behind me. Wish me luck! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
