cordovez Posted September 6, 2014 Share Posted September 6, 2014 I have already written about this in my journal, so I will copy and paste it here again. So I actually finished the program! And it took my by surprise. As you can see from the gap in my updates, I lost track of time. I have been on vacation for the past two weeks, so I allowed myself some indulgences. However, I have decided to re-start the program to kick renewed sugar and simple carbs cravings and to complement my exercise regime. The biggest change I have seen has been in the progress of the way my body looks. I will post before and after pictures here. But please NOTE: I have been doing an intensive exercise program also, so you should not look at my pictures for any indication of what may happen to your body. However, my exercising could be more intense, if I had the stamina, and the results even better. In short these things I have noticed: Not a huge weight loss probably because, I eat a lot more, including much more (clarified) butter, but still managed to loose body fat (which is my objective) 18 days into the Whole30 program I started FREELETICS and I felt I had lots of energy. Lately, while on holiday (after finishing the Whole30), I have felt more lethargic. I am not ready to say that one is the result of the other, since there were other factors. But I will see if I notice a change when I go back on the program. buying enough vegetables and preparing them is a burdensome some times. I will try to pre-prepare more vegetables for my next round. I have a lower tolerance for alcohol now, and although I tasted some good wines in the south of France these past two weeks, alcohol has bee the easiest to let go of. While off the program I have felt at time that I have over eaten (not eating consciously or slowly enough) and have felt bloated, which gave me a sense of guilt. So letting go of the program also meant letting go some (self) control, which translates into lack of self esteem. I have certainly been moody recently (again, not ready to attribute diet as a cause, but will keep my focus on my mood next time around). Here are the pictures. The place to pay attention to is the love handles, especially from the rear view: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
