michellelimchua Posted April 16, 2016 Share Posted April 16, 2016 Day 6. Doing this in Malaysia is especially hard, as we have the most incredible street food here and everyone seems to be eating all the time. We are known as the kind of people who talk about what they are going to eat for dinner, during lunch. Anyway I started the Whole30 on Monday and it's Saturday night - so it's been a full 6 days of eating clean, hurray! I'm severely anemic and suffer from iron deficiency (which I was prescribed supplements for by my hematologist) and I am hoping and praying that the Whole30 will help solve this, as it really affects my life. I am also trying to re-evaluate my relationship with junk food (huge Cheetos & Golden Oreos fan), as I want to be a good role model of health for my two sons Day 4 & 5 were really tough, with headaches the book warned me about (naps really did help!) and am now looking forward to the 'magical' feeling Day 7 is supposed to bring. My biggest learning this week was that it really, really pays to plan and pack all my meals for the week ahead. By anticipating the next day in terms of where I would be, who I would be eating with, and where I needed to be during a potential moment of hunger helped me to stuff my bag full of the food I needed to get through the day without slipping up. I'm what Gretchen Rubin would classify as an 'Obliger', so I need all the accountability I can get, in order to raise my chances of successfully making it through the next 24 days. Any encouragement would be greatly appreciated. As my topic title suggest, I literally do not know a single other person who is doing the Whole30 (so far, no one I've spoken to has even heard of it here!), so finding support has not been easy. (I've subscribed to the Daily30 but it only arrives at 4pm my time). Wish me luck! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
