moiresoul Posted October 10, 2014 Share Posted October 10, 2014 Hello everyone. First of all, please excuse my english, as I'm from Argentina so I speak spanish mainly. Anyway, I'm on my day 18. I've been doing all my efforts to do everyting right. BUT... yesterday, I ate something that contained a little bit of dairy butter (the common one) and cheese. Not mainly, it was like an added something. The dish consists of meat, onions, bell peppers covered with mashed potatoes (these mashed potatoes containing the butter and cheese). I even didn't serve myself a plate, I just ate some bites of it. Yeah, I know, poor self-control. Day 18, no meal planning and hungry at evening. I won't restart now. I would have done it if I'd just getting started, but I'm now in the middle, and I'm really doing some big effort here (mainly because I WAS a vegetarian before joining whole30 and I have decided for these 30 days to consume red meat, more fish, etc. I can't have chicken here because at least in my country is the worst quality of meat out there, it's not so easy to find organic stuff here, so that was clearly a huge disadvantage not only to follow exactly the rules of whole30 but also for my health in general). Without mentioning the feeling of eating red meat again after almost 10 years. It wasn't easy and and it's still difficult for me. Anyway, as I was telling already, I won't getting started again on day 1, it's a decision I've already made (again, I know I'd have decided not to eat that and save me such worry). My question is: is there a chemical reaction or something like that in our body which makes 'something' go wrong in our whole30 process that won't be the same as if I didn't made such thing of eating a bit of something non compliant? That's why we must restart OR it's just a thing about conduct and discipline with the rules of food we only are allowed to eat? (so that we can get used to what we should eat in order to be healthier). I hope somebody out there will get the point of what I'm trying to say in my humble english. And be able to answer me! So I won't be living these last days with guilt and knowing "I could've done it better". Of course I could. But I just want to know if I completely messed it or not so much. I'm overall happy with all this experience. Feeling very, very well, already lost some weight and my clothes are starting to feel and fit better again. Thank you so much, whoever is going to be able to answer me! Greetings from Argentina. Dolores Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
