jump4life Posted August 19, 2014 Share Posted August 19, 2014 Hi- I am not post Whole30 (yet) but I am hoping to learn from your collective experience before I get there! What do you wish you had done differently during your first Whole30? or What did you learn in your Whole30 that you had to relearn several time before it stuck as a long term lifestyle choice ? This questions came to mind yesterday b/c I did quite well maintaining compliance during a challenging day at work (pot luck breakfast, pot luck lunch, happy hour- yes three bad food environment occasions in one day) My internal mantra of "that's not Whole30, that's not Whole30" worked and I was really pleased with making it through the day! However this morning in retrospect I wished I had used the occasion to think about my choices in a more personal way. Something more like "nope I don't even want that pastry b/c I know the sugar high and low makes me feel gross at 10:00" or "nope I really don't want that chicken wing with highly processed oils and sauce because I have a fabulous pork roast and lemon spinach on the menu at home tonight". I think this would have better served me to lay down the foundation of "making it through" challenging food environments in the future, when I don't have an active Whole30 going. So what situations did you face in your Whole 30 that, in retrospect, you wished you would have thought about differently? Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
