fairwayflunkie Posted June 26, 2016 Share Posted June 26, 2016 Well I have read the book cover to cover (got it from the library on Friday and have ordered my own copy)...a few things concern me but are not going to stop me from starting my Whole30 journey on August 1, 2016... On the other hand some things don't bother me at all...lets start with that shall we? 1. No alcohol? No problem...don't drink...never liked it (and I tried when I was of age, really trying to be cool but man it was nasty...LOL)...which is likely a good thing as I'd likely need AA at this point 2. Cooking and prep? Love to cook and already have more gadgets than a fully stocked chef's kitchen 3. No cream in coffee? Again not a problem...I've never even tasted coffee (unless it was in a cake ) and I don't drink tea either...(I know...cheap date likely why DH married me LOL)...hard at social gatherings..."what you just want water?" What the heck is all that about...don't like soda either...(I know what you're thinking...is this chick is weird or what?...) Now to the hard part... 1. No grain...yikes! I love me some homemade bread...that's gotta go...pasta...*sigh* that too...desserts...my downfall love sweets...I am the expert at "paleoing" everything 2. No dairy, this will be the hardest for me as I make my own full fat yogurt with maple syrup (not the cheap store bought, but the kind I bought from my cousin's sugar woods kind...people thing I'm drinking rum it's so dark) 3. The worse one no added sugar, see 2 above 4. I hate avocado...it's in everything!!! 5. Water...man I love water but let's do the math... 222lbs X .5 oz / 8oz = 14 cups of water a day, my drinking cup holds 2 cups so seven of those a day...? WOW...I drink maybe 4 and I'm known to drink a lot of water...*phew* So that's me in a nutshell... I have given up so far (in preparation for my Whole30) 1. Grain...Yup I'm on day 6 of no grain.... 2. I've upped my water to 7, 2cup portions a day...I'm floating here 3. The only added sugar is maple syrup in my yogurt... I'm having symptoms of withdrawal especially in the morning...brain fog, lethargy etc...hard to get going...just want to sleep...it usually goes away after lunch...I'm hoping this goes away soon as I don't like feeling this way... Anywho that is it for now... Nancy Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
