JennyF Posted January 2, 2015 Share Posted January 2, 2015 Day 1 is here and I'm ready to roll. I actually attempted this a few months ago and it didn't work out so well. I caved in and ate food off plan. I have a gluten intolerance so I've not had too many issues with giving up gluten and grains so much, but dairy has been a really problem for me. I LOVE cheese! I think it's because I love the sharpness and rich flavor. This past week I've been experimenting with ways to give my food that special 'zing' and have found roasted sun dried tomatoes, homemade salsas and plenty of seasonings give my food lots of great taste, so I'm learning to adapt my taste buds to a new way of eating. Slowly. Sadly, cheddar cheese is no longer a part of my diet... at least for 30 days. I'm also doing this as an elimination diet to see if I have any food sensitivities. I invited a group of my buddies on Facebook to partake in a 'after Christmas holiday detox' with me and opened up a private group page. Some are choosing to do the Whole 30 while others are simply getting rid of the sugars and junk foods. I sent everyone the links to the W30 website as well as the info on where to buy the book. About half of them are trying the Whole 30 as well. All together there are 13 of us, so I feel especially motivated to stick with it this time since I'm the one promoting this among friends and family. To say I'm a little bit nervous is an understatement. I DON'T want to fail at this again. My health is on the line. I've been struggling this past year with not feeling good. Most days of the week I struggle with ordinary tasks. It HAS to stop. I need 2015 to be my year for great health. So my pantry is stocked, I have a few planned meals (although breakfast is looking bleak) and I'm ready to roll. 30 days here I come! I've got this.
