dcmom Posted May 10, 2014 Share Posted May 10, 2014 I am on Day 9 and keeping it together. I have already discovered I cannot eat Lara bars. I wake up wanting one-- the cherry pie flavor- I adore! But I know they are a sugar trigger for me. I am a sweet breakfast person and a few times have made "paleo discs" with pumpkin, 3 eggs and some coconut flour. I eat them without any sweetener with some almond butter and 1/3 a bananna on the side. I know it's all totally compliant --but really I know-- it's not sweet pancakes- hoping that's ok b/c it's not sweet and does't seem to trigger the sugar demon. I have half and apple and that's it for fruit daily. i am struggling to limit nuts and nut butters- I don't like avocado (a tsp or two of guacamole as a condiment is ok) and I am leaning towards lean meats so I'm hoping the nut butters and nuts are ok. The main feeling is one of being sort of unsatisfied all the time... Just missing my old foods a lot- and I was eating pretty clean before!! One note: a friend passed away on day 2 of the Whole 30 and I desperately wanted a drink during the week of mourning and am very glad I stayed strong did not drink and dealt with my feelings. It was a wake up call that a glass of wine (even though I do not drink to excess) is a definite emotional crutch for me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
