cinagain Posted November 28, 2014 Share Posted November 28, 2014 Finished my first Whole30 on November 22. I didn't follow the re-intro schedule for several reasons. One, I essentially stopped eating breads/grains quite some time ago and already know that they send me rushing to the bathroom if I do. So that didn't need to be tested. I'm fine living without dairy, so that didn't need testing, either. I also don't care if I eat legumes. Last...I know that sugar is my issue and I shouldn't eat it at all...so in a way, what was there to test? LOL Plus, so close to Thanksgiving, I was ready to stop focusing on food for a few days. My plan was to relax, do what I wanted in terms of food, evaluate what I was really missing and how I felt, and then start another Whole30 in January. The first day post Whole30, I continued to eat Whole30. There really just wasn't anything I wanted. On day 2 post W20, I bought one of my favorite holiday treats...peppermint bark. Guess what? I ate a few pieces, did NOT like it (It tasted waxy!), and threw the rest away. The last couple of days, I've eaten very sporadically because I hadn't been grocery shopping for W30 foods...some junk in the house, but really just "letting go" of eating meals (which is my "normal" eating before W30). Guess what? It's pretty obvious I felt BETTER on W30 and anything I'm eating now just isn't worth it. No reason to wait until January to start again. Yesterday's grocery shopping included plenty of W30 items. So today, while fixing some pies for T-Day (not for me!), I also roasted sweet potatoes, made sausage Toscana soup (a W30 recipe), broiled some salmon, chopped vegetables, made some mayo, etc...tomorrow is D1 of my 2nd Whole30. I'm actually very, very surprised...I thought I'd be thrilled to say I'd completed a W30, revert back to old habits for a month, then eventually start another W30. But I'm *liking* this food, enjoying feeling better, etc. Wonders never cease. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
