corgicoconut Posted October 9, 2012 Share Posted October 9, 2012 Hi, today I'm starting my Whole30! I signed up for the Whole30 Daily and as it says in the Day 1 e-mail, I am definitely "frexcited!" After being a vegetarian for a long time (and not doing it properly), I was missing a lot of key nutrients in my diet. I have pretty strong aversions to certain very healthy vegetables (tomatoes, pickles, onions, and peppers) and don't care for a lot of others, so my whole life I've found it hard to get enough vitamins from just food. I started taking vitamins to help with this. And help they did! However, I still wasn't getting enough protein. I started eating meat (only humanely raised!) again about six months ago and this has helped a lot with getting enough protein and keeping my blood sugar steady. The sugar dragon is also constantly battling me. I have had a strong addiction to sugar since I was little and by eating paleo off and on for the past six months, have had some success with fighting back. By completing the Whole30, I plan to learn new recipes which help me incorporate new vegetables into my diet, steady my blood sugar, and slay the sugar dragon! (^ ^) If is anyone is looking for a Whole30 buddy, please let me know! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
