Vian Posted February 1, 2014 Share Posted February 1, 2014 Whole30 #2 complete and successful. I lost 6.5 pounds or so and I think my pants fit a tiny bit looser, but I don't see much of a change in the before and after photos, but that's ok. I didn't actually expect a crazy amount of weight or inches to come off as I've been mostly paleo for the last year, so I'm good with 6.5 pounds. I did meet my primary goal of getting my appetite under control though, so yay! My plan is to stick to most of the whole30 rules, but relax a few of them a bit. 1: Dairy is back on! From my last whole30, I already know that I tolerate dairy, and I had some with dinner lastnight and I'm fine today. I love, love, love cheese and heavy cream, so I am going to allow full-fat quality cheese and local grass-fed organic heavy cream, and kerrygold butter. 2: Small amounts of sugar in otherwise savory things. The only reason I'm allowing back in minimal amounts of sugar is because I want to be able to use curry paste and bacon again and I can't find it without sugar. However, no desserts, no treats, no paleoized junk. 3: Green Peas. I don't eat them often, but there are a couple dishes that just aren't the same without green peas, so I'm going to allow them in those dishes. 4: Wine allowed for cooking. I don't drink alcohol anyway, I only use wine for cooking, and not even that often. My main challenges are resisting sugar, and not caving to peer pressure to have gluten-free crap like quesadillas and stuff. I really want to continue to not have any added sugar other than tiny amounts in otherwise savory things - that's really important to me....the sugar has to be in otherwise savory things like bacon and curry paste. No grains, not even gluten free ones. Day 31: M1: leftover bbq beef and cole slaw from WF2 on top of sweet potato hashbrowns M2: leftover zoodles with chicken thighs and walnut pesto M3: quiche made with organic grass-fed local heavy cream, spinach, bacon, shallots, and feta cheese Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
