JJOhio Posted April 29, 2014 Share Posted April 29, 2014 I think this is the first time posting in the forum although I've been reading throughout my journey Alright so, this is probably TMI but before doing the Whole 30 I ate a typical "healthy SAD" diet - most meals were 4 oz protein, 4 oz whole grain, 4 - 6 oz veggie & possibly cheese or whatnot (I ate cheese in moderation, yogurt, beans, etc.) I undertook a whole 30 to see if I had any food intolerances (I already knew I couldn't drink milk and used to buy the lactose free milk but, to my knowledge anyway, I was fine as long as I didn't consume a ton of yogurt and cheese in one day). I'm currently on Day 30 (WOW just realized that) and I love it. I did have a headache on Days 4 - 5 and a bit of fatigue for a day or two but other than that it's been great. Honestly, I don't really want to change my diet. I haven't missed anything that I've cut out - although I'll probably relax the sugar restriction a bit - i.e. don't automatically skip a recipe that uses honey or maple syrup. With that being said though - before doing Whole 30 I used to have 1 (possibly 2) BM a day and they would be (gah how do I say this is a non-gross way?!) one solid piece of a decent width/length. Since switching to the Whole 30 though, I'm still going once a day, but they're skinny, little and broken up into multiple pieces versus one and that's the only negative I have about the whole program. Do you think I'm just not getting enough fiber? Should I be adding more starches or like, prunes on a daily basis? I've attached my 30 day meal plan, I made it before starting the program because I wanted to be 100% sure I stuck with it. I have not deviated from this other than sometimes to switch the days of meals (i.e. if I forgot to defrost chicken I'd use a meat that was already deferosted). I take a probiotic in the morning, Vitacost Healthy Bones Ultra at lunch, and fish oil with dinner. April_2014_MealPlan.pdf Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
