JosieJake Posted January 3, 2015 Share Posted January 3, 2015 Seriously. I already eat healthy. The worst prepackaged thing I eat is corn tortillas and tortilla chips and salsa, but only those that contain no extra stuff. I recently (read about 2-3 months ago) went organic. I was eating a lot of veggies and meat...pretty much the Whole30 plan. Then when I went organic, some of the stuff I was eating was really expensive. So I started eating more legumes, and quinoa. Not much rice, maybe once a month. They were supposed to be healthy, right? I gained 10 pounds in a week, then another 5 over Thanksgiving. Jeez. I didn't know what it was that did it. So the other day I came across this website. I bought their book. I'm not sure I'll do the whole 30 days. But I started today to see if putting my legumes and quinoa away makes a difference. I have health issues: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia. These have symptoms like IBS. I also have joint pain, arthritis, and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. When I cut back on grains (before going organic) I don't really think any of that got better, only that I had better energy days. I'm also lactose and gluten intolerant. My left knee has polyps, my right is bone-on-bone. So I put the beans, rice, and quinoa away. And the lactose-free milk. And the greek yogurt. And cheese. Those I will miss. Though I don't think those are my problem...maybe the milk. I was drinking almond milk, but like milk milk better. Mmm. So we will see how things go. I have high hopes as I am not doing away with anything that was super bad like refined sugars. And even the grains I won't miss as I started those because the organic veggies were expensive. I will miss home made tacos and breakfast burrito (corn tortilla filled with ham, egg and a bit of shredded cheese). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
