Gonzosan Posted May 16, 2012 Share Posted May 16, 2012 Hello all my name is Jonathan, I've been interested in doing a whole30 for a while. The longest I've done it is probably a week then I eventually slipped up and just fell off the wagon after that. I'm deployed to Kuwait, and I figure I should start one now. It might actually be easier to do it here than back home in Las Vegas, considering I can't drive down to In and Out/Chipotle/Wendy's/Cinnabon etc. If you've ever been to Vegas then you know there is a plethora of buffet style places within walking distance of each other on the strip. Here in my deployed location, you can either eat on base at the chow hall or eat at a shawarma place, subway or a pizza place. That's about it. So I will be limited in my food choices, but I think that would make it much easier to stick to this for 30 days. I started this morning when I had a omelette with ham and tomato. I'm not going to restrict "night shades" or anything like that. I figure if I eat natural foods (meat/vegetables/fruit/nuts/fats) then I will be doing something great for my body. Since I've been here I have been eating pretty badly, which wasn't a goal of mine when I came down here. I've always been focusing on the workouts, but never made the progress I've wanted and I always knew the nutrition aspects were sorely lacking. I fortunately (half glass full) put on weight, and don't have the best skin, so I should be happy I'm not the natural model looking type of person that can eat whatever and smoke and drink and still look amazing. I don't think I would change otherwise. It's much easier to make the change when your lifestyle affects how you look and feel. So today is day one for me, I will try to create a log here somewhere so I can update it once a day for 30 days and record my progress. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
