peak Posted September 23, 2018 Share Posted September 23, 2018 Completed my first W30 earlier this year with great results which actually stretched into a W45-ish period. Have only reintroduced a few no-no's since then with little side effects. Am staying away from sugar and limiting my grains as the new regular eating plan. Have shed 45 pounds and several inches from just diet alone in a little over 6 months. I know that weight loss is not the primary goal of the Plan, but I still have a bit of a gut that really needs to go. Whole 30 is one of the easiest things I have ever done. If eating good food is all it takes, then it really is no effort at all. Right now I do dabble in good wines and whiskeys (no more beer.) Any bread that I eat is gluten-free and I have had pizza only once and now consider it a treat. I do miss my pasta dishes, but it is easy to get over it with a rib eye. I have cut out all deserts and processed sugar and do not miss those calories. I do tend to eat more fruit than what is recommended but my diet now maintains my weight fairly consistent. If (and when I do my next W30) it will be for weight loss reasons. Holidays bring on all the various parties and gatherings. Saying no to alcohol is easy, but I do not want to impose on any hosts by requesting special dishes, so I think the most difficult part would be the selective eating of what might be available. I am thinking that going into a W30 program during the holidays on purpose would be a good test of will-power and good choices. Has anyone done anything similar or should I adjust my thinking and schedule? -frank. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
