haley.willis8 Posted July 22, 2019 Share Posted July 22, 2019 Hello whole30-ers! I will be starting my first whole30 one week from today. My reasons are numerous but primarily to break the unhealthy “reward-binge-guilt” habits I have with food. I know the guilt is sometimes so overwhelming after I eat something “bad” that it affects my quality of life in other areas. I need to view food as fuel rather than reward. After reading the 30 day guide, I was able to start thinking about some additional reasons: -Prevent future health issues. Family history of thyroid issues, high blood pressure, breast cancer. -Learn to cook!! Utilize veggies and feel confident in the kitchen. I hate to admit I have had to look up images of some of the vegetables mentioned in the guide! How sad is that! It made me realize the limited amounts of ingredients I use in my normal diet. I’ve gone back and forth about starting this in the summer.. thinking to myself: is it really the right time? How could I possibly say no thank you at BBQs, weddings, etc? Ultimately though it was reading through these forums, looking at social media, and getting through the 30 day guide that convinced me. Thank you for providing this space and the ample amount of information. The question I will end with for now is just some general 1 week out preparations. Anything you wish you knew right before you started? I’ve read the guide but I love hearing specific stories. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
