sunnystarbucksgirl Posted September 25, 2012 Share Posted September 25, 2012 Hi. I'm on my first whole30, day #25. Overall it's been a good experience. I haven't been on a scale, (per the whole30 guidelines) but I know I have lost weight and inches. My clothes fit. (In fact I am into clothes that I haven't worn in several years) My skin and hair look great. I sleep well. I feel good. Cooking and eating this way has been challenging at different points during the last 25 days, but honestly I think we have eaten very well. My husband, who is doing this along with me at my request, says I have 'rocked' this! The strange thing is that despite all of the positives, I am so ready to be done! Now that we are only a few days away, I just can't wait to go back to eating paleo, rather than whole30. It's not that I would never do this again, and I don't think I am having any actual cravings. I am just looking forward to a glass of wine, a small taste of a sugary treat, an item made with a paleo type of flour, a bite of cheese, etc. Not every day or in large quantities, but sometimes. Is this normal to feel? Am I crazy to want to eat those items that I know aren't great for me, cause me inflammation, affect my insulin resistance, etc.? I am healthy and don't have medical issues, but my immediate family (and my husbands) are loaded with health issues that we wish to avoid if we can. Was I supposed to want to eat like this permanently? Just wondering what others think and feel at this stage... Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
