WHOLE30 for JP


Recommended Posts

This is my third or fourth attempt at the WHOLE30. I've done it before, but always return to unhealthful eating, and regain my weight. 

After a surgical complication that started in JULY 2016, and a slow recovery that isn't done, I am ready to give it a go. I will weigh myself tomorrow. 

BFAST: fruit smoothie with only berries, plums, cocoa nibs, unsweetened coconut milk

Moderators don't usually comment on people's personal logs, and I'm not going to come back and police what you're eating, so if you want to just continue on doing what you're doing, go for it, but I did just want to mention that if you've done this several times, and you're having trouble sticking to it between times, perhaps this time, embrace not just the strict rules of the program, but the recommendations, and see if that makes any difference for you. 

What I mean is, you can have smoothies if you want, but there are reasons that we recommend not to. (Check out the Can I Have list under smoothies:  https://whole30.com/2013/06/the-official-can-i-have-guide-to-the-whole30/ )  Making all your meals, even breakfast, meet the meal template will get you the best results:  https://whole30.com/downloads/whole30-meal-planning.pdf 

Here's more about the rules vs. the recommendations:  https://whole30.com/2015/01/rules-recommendations/

Again, I'm not posting this to call you out or say you need to start over, and I'm not going to come back and post on your log every time you have a smoothie or something, but we really do want you to have the best possible results you can get any time you do Whole30, and I truly believe it is worth trying to live without smoothies for 30 days and embrace large meals with lots of vegetables, adequate amounts of protein and fat, and occasional fruit. Just try it and see what happens.
