Coloradoyogamama Posted February 9, 2020 Share Posted February 9, 2020 Hey everyone! My name is Julie, I'm 41, and I had such great results on my first Whole30 in January, that I want to do it again in March! I am taking February to slowly reintroduce foods to see how I react to them. I was so excited to see the affect these foods had on my system, but the results have been anticlimactic. I just don't feel very good, clean, or healthy when I eat dairy, gluten, sugar, or alcohol. Not sure about legumes, peanuts, or other grains yet. I hated the rules at first, and don't consider my self to be a big "rules girl." But I came to love and cherish them and I want to go back to Whole30 land! Dairy makes me break out and cheese is not the magical food I remember - it's just... fine. Sugar gives me an insane rush followed by a low hard crash. Alcohol is not as fun as it used to be, and I don't want to waste the whole next day feeling bad/unproductive. Not one food or drink tasted as good as I remembered or expected it to taste! I'm slowly transitioning to a place in my life where I want to, need to, and am using food to fuel my body, not feed the sugar dragon or any of my other demons. Also, I look and feel better than I have in six years, since before I had my last baby. I want to keep this light, healthy, free, autonomous feeling going! Hope some of you can join me in March and help me stay accountable!!! XOXO Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
