dcducks1 Posted April 29, 2014 Share Posted April 29, 2014 I have completed my Whole 30 and wanted to share my results. I started trying to get back in shape by going to the gym in January. I had gotten the biggest I had ever been at 251 lbs. I worked very hard lifting and running and lost 13 pounds but then I hit a wall and stayed at 238 pounds. I decided to try the Whole 30 diet last month and wasn't really expecting a huge change but felt I had to try something. I DID NOT work out during the Whole 30 program. I did this intentionally to see what my results would really be. I was dizzy for a few days as my body adjusted to a lack of sugar. After a few more days I started getting cravings like crazy but I noticed increased energy, focus, and better sleep. After a few more days the cravings went away and I noticed just how much garbage I had been eating on a daily basis. I struggled not to weigh myself since I was constantly getting comments about my weight loss. I had read that the Whole 30 really isn't a diet but more of a change in the way you eat. Well, here are the results. In a month I lost an additional 17 pounds! My body fat went from 34% to 29%! I lost at least one shirt size and at least two pant sizes! My allergies have not bothered me at all! My acid reflux is gone! I sleep great! I have lots of energy! I look much better, feel much better! I'm sure my cholesterol has improved also. To celebrate this morning I decided to keep on going with the Whole 30 way of eating. I have two co-workers who want to start and I want to be there to support them. Thanks for all of the encouragement from everyone! If I lose a few more pounds, I might just finally put up a pic hahaha! Stay strong!
