mammajeni Posted January 23, 2014 Share Posted January 23, 2014 Been trying to figure out a way to help myself get over my food issues. I quit smoking years ago cold turkey, it worked well for me. But food has always been hard for some reason. I didnt need to smoke so it was a non issue, but I have to eat so I have always struggled. It finally dawned on me recently that yeah, I have to eat, but I can "quit" the foods that aren't good for me - the ones that always cause me to "fall off the wagon" when I'm trying to change my eating... duh! Potato chips are not my friends... I can give them up forever like I did cigarettes. So when I found out about the whole 30 I saw it as an opportunity to give up the stuff I don't need and I can honestly say so far so good. I have not had cravings or unpleasant side effects. I feel good. I need to drink more water I think, but definitely staying satisfied between meals. Sometimes I have a thought that I will get bored with whatever it is I am eating at the time, not sure why, but I brush it aside. I roasted a stockpile of vegetables so I don't have to cook everyday. Same with my proteins. I keep forgetting to eat fruit though. I don't like to eat fruit with anything else but I am forcing myself. I guess it depends on the fruit though. I had some applesauce with breakfast today and that worked out okay. Anyway, I want to share my favorite quote because I will be repeating it to myself a lot... "Nothing is impossible for the work itself says I'm possible" Audrey Hepburn. And to all the others who are on the plan... well done keep it up!
