Keetha Posted October 25, 2012 Share Posted October 25, 2012 I've heard about The Whole 30 and after listening to a podcast with Dallas and Melissa and came here to learn more. I've just begun reading the Forum this week - wow, what a lot of great information! I'm thinking about jumping in and trying it next month. As an experiment, yesterday I ate like I was on the Whole 30. I thought going without coffee creamer (although I've since searched the forums and have gotten a couple of great-sounding recipes for coconut milk creamer) would be the hardest part. It wasn't fun but I didn't anticipate how hungry I'd be! I felt like I ate all day long and still felt hungry. Breakfast was a baked sweet potato with almond butter. Later I had cauliflower and onion sauteed in olive oil. For lunch, 4 ounces of grilled chicken with 1 cup of vegetable soup. (Although after I ate, I realized the soup had quinoa and white beans. So, not compliant.) Then I had an apple with almond butter. Roasted broccoli with 2 ounces of chicken. For dinner, hamburger steak with green beans. Maybe I should have eaten a larger, more filling breakfast? I thought my kitchen and pantry were well stocked to do this but when I began reading labels, the turkey sausage had sugar in it, as did the bacon, as did...lots of things I thought about snacking on. At lunch today, I'm going to the bookstore and get a copy of ISWF. I can tell just from yesterday that I need to be much better prepared come next Thursday! Even though I didn't eat strictly on the plan at lunch, I have to say that last night and even this morning when I woke, I was happy and energetic: I withstood the temptation of a big selection dessert last night at dinner, mashed potatoes, roll, crackers, all day yesterday. It wasn't easy but it wasn't impossible and I DID it. Thanks again for all the advice and tips I find here. Keetha Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
