diminuta Posted October 8, 2012 Share Posted October 8, 2012 I have started the program 15 days ago, although IÂ´m a 90% paleo dieter with the ocassional flirt with sweets and bread I wanted to regain control of myself (aka fight sugar cravings). I decided to give this a try as whole30 plan seems very reasonable and healthy to me. I workout 3 to 4 times a week, combining running with weight lifting. IÂ´m 35, mother of 3, IÂ´m not fat but want a leaner body and loose some of weight, one pound would do. I Â´m from Spain, where, mind you, we donÂ´t have whole foods, or nothing of the sort. We have to rely on our local markets to be truly selling what they say its organic. So, no salami, bacon or whatever of that kind. On the other hand, the mediterranean diet is plenty of wonderful options. I have some fruit, as low in frutose as possible, and nuts for breakfast as I no time or hunger for more, and eat for lunch and dinner protein with vegetables with good olive oil or avocado. Some times, especially tea time when IÂ´m usually hungry IÂ¨ll have a piece of fruit (slices of coconut, kiwi, small pear, raspberries,etc the same as for breakfast) and some nuts (macadamia, walnuts) And here comes the problem, 15 days after I have put on weight (very little, but weight gain). I know you you are not supposed to use the scale, but as I normally eat very healthily loosing weight was THE goal. I have always been an atkins fan, but with all the marvelous fruit and vegetables we have in Spain I have always felt I was truly missing out. Sadly IÂ´m starting to think that IÂ´m condemned to cut off fruit again and part of the vegetable intake, and instead of eating nuts (when hunger arrises at tea time) have some non organic salami,. ...so where would be then the difference with atkins diet and whole9 apart from trying to eat as organic as possible? Can anyone guide me if thereÂ´s a different option before saying goodbye to fruits and cut down vegetables, lower good fats intake and, of course, forget about nuts? Thank you so much in advance Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
