askramer Posted October 23, 2012 Share Posted October 23, 2012 I am starting my second Whole30 today. I did my first one in August/September. I felt great. I had more energy. Looked leaner and was a happier person. I didn't get the clear skin though. My face actually broke out more. All in all it was wonderful and I was going to eat like this the rest of my life. Then I reintroduced corn, I was so nauseous. Dairy gave me a headache. I never reintroduced gluten b/c I knew that wouldn't make me feel good. Sugar also made me feel sick and shaky. So I kept eathing Whole30. Then I started "off roading" here and there. A glass of wine, some air popped popcorn with grass fed butter, a few corn chips. Over the next couple of weeks the glass of wine became 3, the chips became kettle cooked salt and vinegar chips, then I added in chocoalate coconutmilk icecream. Slowly I started to have more pain, loose my temper more, etc. Soooo now I am back. I feel frustrated b/c i wasn't able to keep a balance of mostly Whole30 eating and just "off roading" once in a while. Instead I slipped right back into my emotional eating. I guess i need the guidlines of the whole30 right now. I singned up for the daily Whole30 again this time as well. I like the accountability it offers. Maybe this time I will be able to finally kick my emotional eating habits and find more balance at the end of my whole30. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
