Kate File Posted January 27, 2013 Share Posted January 27, 2013 So who is ready to start a Whole 30 in February? Thought it more flexible to call it a February group because it can be hard to start on a particular day. I am starting a preliminary Whole 5 today and starting the REAL Whole30 on Monday 4th February. I will use this week to practice but it is my husbands birthday on Friday and I am cooking lobster mornay and sticky date pudding! And on Saturday I fly to the Gold Coast to meet my new GRANDSON and I don't want to be an ungracious guest with fussy food habits to the new mother, my son and his in-laws who will be doing the cooking. This is my second Whole 30 and I loved the first one and found it quite easy - I am an all or nothing person and the strict rules actually made it easier. I am a complete sugar junkie though and fell into terrible habits since Christmas and being away all of January up til now. I can't believe I put on 6kg in 5 weeks!!! So i need this 5 day prelim start to kick start me. After my first one I continued paleo for a while, then reintroduced dairy and minimal grains. I then "quit sugar" and read a lot of books about that. Loved it and truly believe in everything I read. And NO sugar is so much easier than some sugar. Although on those plans you are allowed things with less than 2% sugar which makes it easier (allows in bacon and ham). Last time I had a week lead-up time to prepare foods, stock the pantry, find new healthy food sellers and completely psyche myself up for a good pure start! And clear out the freezer of those not quite compliant meals (eg my last bolognaise sauce made from pasta sauce containing sugar!) I'm from Sydney Australia and would love to hear from other Aussies but love reading posts from all other nationalities too. Posting and reading the forums really helps me stay motivated and keep on track. Fascinating too. Isn't technology amazing that we can communicate with such ease across the entire world. Particularly with a mini iPad in the handbag! Look forward to hearing from you! Kate Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
