JimS Posted May 3, 2012 Share Posted May 3, 2012 So I attempted a Whole30 last month and lasted 22 full days, but ultimately tripped into a BIG mug of Bulletproof Coffee. Rather than drown, I drank it! I wasn't craving it like I might crave a frozen banana and pile of almond butter or dark chocolate dipped strawberries... but I was on auto-pilot and wasn't paying attention. It was all good, until it wasn't. The lesson for me is to constantly stay mindful of each and every action that can affect Whole30 success (or failure). I don't view my first attempt as a total failure... but I did not fully succeed. I made progress on my main goals going into the challenge, which were: curb mindless snacking on 'paleo' treats (nuts, nut butters, dark chocolate, higher GI fruits, etc) improve my ability to determine the difference between real hunger and cravings, then act appropriately see how my body reacted to going completely dairy free, which I have never truly done In the end, I stumbled over the main problem that led me to the Whole30... being asleep at the wheel when making food choices. For those who might benefit, here's my first Whole30 log: http://forum.whole9l...mping-right-in/. This time around, I am going to hammer home the 'mindful' bit. I'm not going to take success for granted just because I've been paleo / primal for 7-8 months and have seen great results. I will complete my Whole30... and I will finish on May 31st, my anniversary. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
