HealthySnacker Posted March 24, 2019 Share Posted March 24, 2019 No. Just a quick note to say that Whole 30 doesn't work for everyone. I hope you won't feel like a failure if it doesn't work for you. This is a fad diet dressed up in whole food clothes. That doesn't mean that it won't work for you. It may be the jump-start you need to make healthy changes in your life. But it wasn't for me or any of the people I have spoken with in person after they finished the 30 days. I made it to Day 24, and felt pretty impressed with myself for getting that far. But I had a sneaking suspicion the whole time that this diet really wasn't right for me. After 24 days, I was glad I'd done it just because the eliminations were so helpful in giving me insight into my usual diet (there's definitely room for improvement). I'm grateful for that. But I felt so deprived by this diet that even two weeks after stopping, I'm still feeling starved in a way that I did not experience before the diet. I feel like I've done more damage than good (not that there was any obvious good, in the first place. I didn't lose weight, feel full or fix any physical issues that I can tell). Say what you want about sugar dragons, but mine were friendlier BEFORE this diet, so I won't be recommending it to anyone. I had to add a lot of egg and meat to my diet to stay compliant and for me, it didn't feel like a better way to eat. I know this may not be what you want to hear, so just take it as a humble suggestion to trust yourself. If it feels right...go for it! But if you suspect that you need something a little different, you're probably right. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
