3 days ago, I started my whole30, and 3 days later, here I am, munching on a doughnut.


I have no excuses to make except that it was all entirely my fault.


I'm ready to jump right back in.


My main problem is with carbohydrates, so I'm taking it one step at a time.


I have 13 days before things get really hectic for me, so I want to focus on eliminating carbohydrates and carbohydrate cravings and then embark on an actual whole30. No weighing myself of course, and no fruits as well because I just use them to satisfy my sweet tooth.


Here I go again.

You can do it Momo!  Preparation is key.  If you haven't picked it up yet you should read the book "It All Starts With Food."  It's a fantastic read and really helps break down WHY you should consider stop eating certain foods.

Loulabelle made a great point there.  Sweet potatoes is what helped me get through the Whole30 program!  Here is an awesome thread about sweet potatoes/yams: http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/29499-sweet-potatoesyam/


If you're the type that doesn't really like to cool or don't have a lot of time to do feel free to check out my food log.  Most of my meals take 15 minutes MAX to prepare. 


Good luck on your journey Momo - I'm cheering for you.  ;)

I'm a beginner too so I certainly don't know it all but I would second the other poster that said to include starchy vegetables.  I am a huge sugar/carb person.  I wish I could eat sweets all day every day, but obviously I feel like crap when I do.  Anyway try that.  I added some sweet potato to my breakfast yesterday and I think it definitely helped.  I think eating the healthy fat helps a lot too.
