MiaSoleil Posted September 1, 2017 Share Posted September 1, 2017 Hello, I'm nearing the end of my first day on Whole30. Yesterday I discovered that I'd have to stick to a very lowfat diet because of a gallstone partially obstructing my gallbladder causing severe attacks for the past two and a half months (it will be removed in mid-October). My first reaction was, Okay then, I'll live on gummy bears, since I lived for dairy and cheese (I would have half and half with my cereal instead of milk, for instance, eat a pint of ice cream in a sitting regularly, and I'd add creme fraiche to everything). Then I began researching low-fat diets, and saw that it is conceivable that I can do this, once I began focusing on what I can eat and not what I have to avoid. However I was still going to rely heavily on sugar to get me through until the operation: yesterday after meeting with the surgeon I bought a 5 lb pack of gummy bears, and when I realized I could still drink, I saw that as a consolation as well. Fortunately, last night I found the Whole30 plan. Since I was already forced to overhaul my diet, now I'm excited to overhaul it in a healthy way. I'm also a runner - I ran three marathons this year, and had been planning on a fourth before the gallbladder operation sidelined that idea - and I'm interested to see how Whole30 will affect my running - I'm guessing for the better, given my diet before. We do have a lot of sweets, and pizza parties, and open bar parties where I work, so I'll have to stay strong, which is why I'm introducing myself here now! Thanks, and best to everyone.
