Whole30Sue Posted May 29, 2015 Share Posted May 29, 2015 Today is day 60 of my extended first whole30. I am stopping at 60 days. I think I am ready to try riding my own bike, as they say, so I am starting this thread and moving out of the whole30 log thread. It is going to continue to be an interesting journey. There are a few things I will try to reintroduce. Mostly dairy. I learned caffeine is an issue for me, so I am on day 4 of detoxing from caffeine, so right now I want to leave things as is for a while so my body can adjust. Still getting headaches. Here are some of my initial thoughts on life after whole60...will update as I figure out how to ride this bike. - I plan to stay using the same fats. Do not see any reason to go back to the less healthy fats when these are working just fine for all my cooking. I do plan to be more flexible when eating out and not asking about the fat that a protein is cooked in. - I do not miss legumes. Except I used to have a problem with cravings for peanut butter. I think that was more of a combination of the peanuts and sugar. I don't want to try sugar yet. Getting free of that sugar dragon wasn't easy, why invite it back for peanut butter. Totally not worth it. - finding compliant bacon and sausage where I live is difficult. In fact, there is none in the two grocery stores here, so I will be switching to regular bacon and sausage first. REINTRODUCTION: Did not go well. Very upset stomach. - I didn't drink alcohol before whole30, so that is an easy one. Here are my very personal reasons for this choice. I have an introverted personality, and I do not particularly like the extrovert that emerges after a drink or two. "Drunk Sue" as my friends call her, she is a lot of fun, but she isn't me. I have never had an experience in which I was glad that I drank. I have given my life over to God and being present in the moment and service of others, drinking never helps me with that mission. (There are occasions where it is worth it. My sister and I were married in a double wedding, for our 20th anniversaries the four of us went to Hawaii. I did have a drink while there and enjoyed it.) Post-whole30 NO list: - Caffeine. Messes with my sleep. - Pre-seasoned ground italian sausage. Gave me very upset stomach. - Sugar. Would bring back sugar dragon. I love living free of that beast. Not going to reintro until something "worth it" comes along? - Macadamia nuts. Argh! Still struggling with letting go. They are food with no brakes for me.
