Vian Posted January 1, 2015 Share Posted January 1, 2015 Tomorrow marks the beginning of whole30 #4 for me. I've been AIP for the past 9.5 months, and while that means not eating a lot of things, sugar is actually allowed on the paleo approach version of the AIP (In moderation, but we all know how that turns out). So, my goals for this whole30 90 is to slay the sugar dragon once and for all. I think excess sugar is contributing to my inflammation (which is what's causing my psoriasis) and keeping me from losing weight. I want to be more mindful of my portions, if I'm really hungry or just wanting to snack, and avoiding snacking at all costs, especially when I get home from work. I would also like to see improvements in energy levels and my desire to workout. For exercise, I plan to workout 6 days a week, alternating between the Turbofire videos I have, swinging a kettlebell around, and bodyweight exercises. I have taken my "before" pictures, and measurements and weight. I will now hide my scale. I'm not a slave to the scale, but I do think I will be tempted to jump on it after a while to check my progress. I usually weigh myself once or twice a week. I will post the "before" pictures and stats once there is an "after" set to compare them to What my whole90 will look like: Since I am AIP, I'll have a few more restrictions than the normal whole30. I have been able to reintroduce a few things though. I eat eggs, pecans, black pepper and some other seed-based spices, but I react to almonds. I tried to reintroduce white potatoes on christmas and had ambiguous results, plus I want to lose weight, so I will just leave those out for now. I may attempt to reintroduce other nightshades during my whole90 though. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
