Monicameme Posted April 29, 2014 Share Posted April 29, 2014 May 1st begins my first foray into Whole30. With some adjustments. I can't do nuts. I love nuts, but they bloat me something terrible, so I've decided to leave them out for this month. My hope that is that after 30 days of a health 'reset' - removing inflammatory foods and much-loved Friday night drinks - my stomach will have healed enough to more easily digest nuts and seeds.A love of nuts isn't the only reason I'm attempting this program. See, my family is cursed with cancer. I don't want it, no matter how far in my future it might be and, as they say, the best medicine is preventative: a healthy body.I discovered the Paleo Lifestyle a few years back after researching ways to beat the family curse, and it's given me a new lease on life - no more afternoon slumps and an easy ability to evade circulating colds of flues. But I still have rather chronic stomach issues - bloating, pain and nausea after eating. And a bunch of food sensitivities - nuts and seeds being one.It probably doesn't help that I like my Friday-nights drinks and the bad food choices that stem from that, or the fact my boyfriend is a foodie and great cook, or that I love grazing and snacks more than regular meals, and often grazing choices aren't as healthy as they could be.This program is a chance to right those bad habits - or at least have a break from them - and to really give healthy eating a chance, without slip. And this log is my attempt to remain accountable.May 1st: one month of solid, no excuse (bye-bye Friday night drinks), healthy eating. I'm hopeful for the results!
