Julie Jane's Food Log


Recommended Posts

I just found this forum and wished I had seen it from the start. I have a google doc that I've been sharing with a sister and a friend for feedback, but they are busy people. Whether or not anyone responds to this log, I'll at least feel like it's public.  :P


I started my first whole 30 on May 1st and got through 16 days beautifully before a farm wedding convinced me I needed a gingery adult beverage. I restarted and made it until last weekend when a trip to a conference out of town also led me astray (yep, I know it was really me leading ME astray!)


I have been on track since then, but I've got a month now with no events. I'm going to start today as a day 1 for super accountability and hope to extend my stretch all the way to 30 this time.



Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs, salad greens, guacamole

Lunch: turkey patty, steamed broccoli with olive oil, small bowl sliced bananas and strawberries

Dinner: salmon patties with sweet potato, salad greens, olive oil, lime

Hey there


Just a couple of things you should note:

Larabars & trail mix do not constitute a meal. Larabars are for emergency use only - as in stuck in the traffic for six hours with no gas station in sight for 10 miles in either direction emergency. Trail mix isn't even really good for a snack. Stick to the meal template of 1-2 palm sized pieces of protein, 1-3 cups of veggies, and 1-2 thumb sized pieces of fat (or a dollop of mayo, or a handful of olives, or whatever...)

Take a look at Melissa's announcement from earlier this month on Fruit & Nut Bars....

Eggs, when they are your only source of protein, should be the number of whole eggs you can hold in one hand - which is 3-4 for most females. Mixing up your proteins will help to keep you feeling fuller for longer - try mackerel with your eggs, or sauteed ground beef...

Also, coffee, if caffeinated, is recommended to be taken before midday. Apart from disrupting sleep coffee can also have a diuretic effect so make sure you're getting enough water on board - you should be aiming for 1/2 an ounce per pound of body weight per day.
