Tomorrow is the first day!

 

Actually, Monday was supposed to be the first day, but I had trouble getting started.

 

I'm working on my body composition in preparation for my wedding this fall. I have some addition goals, which are:

  • Eradicate my sweet tooth once and for all! I'm good about not eating refined sugars, but I love honey and maple syrup. I tend to feel like I always need a little extra "something" after a meal.
  • Break my afternoon snack habit.
  • Stop counting calories and get in touch with my hunger signals.

 

Input is welcome and appreciated. 

 

Meal plan for tomorrow: 

 

M1:

1 egg + 2 whites with spinach

1/2 sweet potato (It's large)

TBSP Cashew butter

 

M2:

Kale salad with tahini dressing (tahini and lemon juice)

Can of tuna packed in water

Other 1/2 sweet potato

 

M3: 

Spaghetti squash

Brussels roasted with coconut oil

Baked tilapia

 

WO:

Chest, Shoulders, Triceps and 20 min HIIT.

March 26 was my first day as well.

 

Day one - didn't quite have the grasp of many of the rules, although i believe I have the food rules down.

 

Day one

Meal one - coffee & 3 scrambled eggs in ghee.

 

Meal two - 2 hard boiled eggs

 

Meal three - Salad - lettuce, grilled yellow bell pepper, cucumber, carrot, grilled shrimp balsamic vinaigrette. Half of a sweet potato

 

Meal four - Strawberries and raw almonds

 

Meal five - banana

 

Meal six- quarter lb of grilled wild fresh salmon over sautéd spinach with olive oil & garlic, grilled asparagus.

 

As I said - hadn't gotten to the part about snacking, less fruit more veggies.  

 

Day two I got down to four meals and less eggs. ;)  Feel like I can do this!

Congratulations! Have you downloaded the meal planning template? http://whole30.com/downloads/whole30-meal-planning.pdf.  You should eat 1 to 2 palm size portions of protein, 2 - 3 cups of veggies and 1 - 2 thumb sized portions of fat. Most people do not eat enough on the whole30. You should eat more protein. 1 egg and 2 egg whites are not enough protein. The rule with eggs are that you eat as many as you can hold in your hand (probably 3) and eat the yolks as well. I find eating ground meat and stir fry in the mornings is more filling than three eggs. I think you need to eat more fat, this will help you feel satisfied so you aren't tempted to snack between meals. Have you made mayonnaise yet? It helps add fat to your meals. Don't include the cooking fat in your total fat, most of it is left in the pan. Good Luck! You Can Do It!
