michelle45 Posted September 18, 2012 Share Posted September 18, 2012 I just finished my first Whole30 today and I couldn't be happier about how I look and feel. I started the Whole30 on the advice of a coworker who had thyroid problems, and decided to try the Whole30 to increase her energy. I was so impressed with how she felt and looked, I decided to give it a try. I am a 46 year old female who is perpetually about 25-30 pounds overweight (between bouts of South Beach, Weight Watchers, and whatever else I think might help). On WW and South Beach, I still drank up to 6 diet cokes/day, ate processed foods (south beach diet bars, ww dinners) and experienced marked ups and downs in my hunger (mostly while on weight watchers). I also cheated all the time, eating sugary snacks every night (almost felt like an addiction....I hid my Reeses Puff binges from my family and fooled myself about how much crap I was consuming). I also suffered from acne and chronic acid reflux and was on meds for both, and was 25 pounds overweight. Enter the Whole 30. Below are some of my experiences: Carb Flu? I felt horrible the first few days and my Diet Coke cravings were intense. Once I got through that ....no problem! Acne: Within two weeks, my skin cleared up for the first time in years. I went off the medication, and don't seem to need it! Acid Reflux: Gone. Nothing. Zip. Off the medication. Digestive Issues: No more gas or bloating. None. Weight Loss: I weighed myself on day 29 and I had lost 5 pounds--not much, but I am ok with that. I have been told I am "glowing" by several people and I just feel and look healthier. I am a believer and I want to keep it up! I love how I feel!!!! Michelle Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
