Loverly Posted February 28, 2016 Share Posted February 28, 2016 Starting tomorrow, Sunday Feb. 28th for my first Whole30 and excited about it. I have been gluten-free since Jan 1, for the second time and that has gone smoothly. However, it hasn't removed cravings for sugar/carbs as you are able to satisfy them just fine without eating gluten. I do feel less bloated/less inflammation without gluten, so I am a believer in that, for me. I want to do the Whole30 because I just want to eat so much healthier. I am 53 and still compete/workout a good amount and have ongoing inflammation/joint issues I always have to keep an eye on and am optimistic this way of eating will continue to improve that on top of the gluten-free. Also, I've always had pretty lousy skin (incl. skin cancers) and have read the positive impact the whole30 might have. There is A LOT of cancer in my family, different types, and I feel it could be VERY beneficial to eat a ton more veggies/fruit and WHOLE foods, then get a better idea of what works best for me when foods are added back in at the end. I don't drink a lot of alcohol but feel the 30-day break will be a healthy reset. The timing is good so here we go...have done all my shopping and will be posting every day...thanks in advance for your support!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
