querida Posted May 12, 2014 Share Posted May 12, 2014 Hello W30 peeps! I've been interested in nutrition and a "good eater" for the last 10 years or so. Hearing that grains and beans are inflammatory for the body, and that eating a fair amount of animal protein isn't, has been a massive paradigm shift for me. So I'm trying it out for myself. I'm embarking on the Whole30 extremely confident that I can handle this challenge, since I already have a fresh produce-heavy diet, go super light on dairy/sugar and gave up refined grains years ago. One motivation for doing a Whole30 is to figure out how to eat the right amount of good fat. I have often found myself unable to go more than 4 hours between meals, which I'm now suspecting was for lack of fat (and perhaps a large enough portion of animal protein). I've typically added fat to meals, or bridged the time between meals, with nuts/seeds. So on one hand, I'm concerned that I'll underdo the amount of necessary fat in a meal and get hungry quickly, and on the other, I'm concerned that I'll lean too heavily on nuts/seeds out of habit and get too much fat that way. I'm hoping to lose some body fat by doing this, and I'd hate to sabotage that. I'm sure I'll find my balance, but if anyone has any pro tips to share, I'll take 'em! (I should mention that I have the meal planning template taped to the inside of my kitchen cabinet (pretty sure I get it too) and that I'm aware that between-meal hunger may subside as my body adjusts to the W30.)
