jmcbn Posted December 27, 2015 Share Posted December 27, 2015 Having come to the Whole9 party a little late last year, but having seen some good, sustainable results & changes I've decided to re-visit each of the pillars again this year.I've been paleo/primal for as long as I can remember, am fast approaching my first Whole30 anniversary, and have been comfortably riding my bike for some time. For the most part my personal eating plan looks a lot like Whole30, so for me the January nutritional focus will be FODMAPs.It finally clicked for me that I have a problem with FODMAPs back in July and I've pretty much eaten exclusively from the green section on >this infographic< ever since, but I LOVE mushrooms, I find leeks add a nice sweetness to many dishes, and I miss avocados. I feel like it's about time I knew exactly what (& how much) I can & can't eat without symptom.I'm completely comfortable with how I eat generally so I won't be logging food here, other than to record symptoms/findings etc, or any other info I come across along the way that I think might be useful...About me: I was born in God's own country (that's Northern Ireland to those who don't know!) but spent my formative years in Greece before moving back 'home'. I'm a single mum to two boys (aged 13 & 9). Currently working full time as a finance manager within the Construction Industry while studying to become a registered nutritionist. My youngest son has multiple food intolerances so I have spent MANY MANY hours with dieticians & nutritionists (particularly during weaning which was a very long slow process) which first piqued my interest in how what we eat effects our bodies & this started me on my paleo journey - as a result my plan is most likely to specialise in the food allergy/intolerance area. Exercise-wise I'm a Tough Mudder, a fan of functional movement & lifting, and train on average 5 days a week.I'm currently on annual leave and also currently on a period of planned off-roading (which for me involves dairy, alcohol & sugar) during which time I still eat to template, but enjoy a glass of wine (or more) with my meal, and/or follow it up with some quality ice cream, or a slice of pavlova for example, or the occasional paleo 'treat'. This period will end on Jan 2nd, and my FODMAP experiment will begin.I believe that continuing to follow the template and not scheduling regular (weekly/monthly) off-roading sessions (because then you feel you have to go off-road even if you don't want to) has been the key to my continued success."If all the primary ingredients are available for its normal functions, the human body does not engage in making things that are bad for its survival" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
