missmary Posted February 10, 2013 Share Posted February 10, 2013 So I've done a ton of thinking on my recent whole30, and, although I've got a lot that is working for me, I'm still not as healthy as I could be and I deserve to be healthy and happy (insert swear word of choice for firm emphasis)! eh hem. I've also studied a couple of the special food plans in practical paleo, so I'm making my own plan incorporating some ideas from that and a special focus on the meal template from ISWF. This will mean a little more precision on fat and carb intake than I would ever recommend for somebody on their first ride through the W30 (thus posted in the post-w30 log area), but for my own piece of mind, I feel like I need to try this for a while. n=1 begins now. Here's my rulebook: Minimum 2 cups veggies at each meal, variety of colors/types, up to about 3/4 cup starchy veggies post-workout meals, up to 1/4 cup starchy veggies in other meals. I will include 1/4 cup cultured carrots or beets as part of my starch at breakfast and dark green veggies at least once per day. 1 palm of protein at each meal. Careful moderation of fats, favoring avocado, naturally occuring fat in meat, fish and eggs, etc. over added oil and ghee. 1 thumb of fat at each meal, or 1/2 avocado or a small handful olives. no paleo mayo. My regimine of vitamin D supplements, 1 brazil nut*, 1.5 sheets of sea snax, 8 ozish of my home brewed kombucha will continue (although I think I will stop mentioning it in my log every day). I MIGHT spring for fermented cod liver oil/butter blend to add to the mix. I WILL refrain from iced coffee/espresso, etc. after 11am each day (tea is ok). Finally, you may see me off-road a tiny bit. I know, that might seem counterintuitive BUT, I don't have a problem with compliance, I know exactly what my off-roading gets me, and I need to believe I'm actually living my life and not finishing up one more plan before life starts. If I do the math and decide a glass of wine with friends, or the odd red potato or spec of sugar is worth it, I will do it (I'll code it in red for you guys). I will not drink alone at home, however. really. I will not. Aside: I think I'll skip logging my workouts here. trust me when I tell you I workout a lot (probably slightly too much) and it's super balanced with a variety of activities and I love it and it's really fun. ok. Here I go. *mind changed about this. selenium, I can get from fish, shellfish, etc. don't really want the Omega 6s from these nuts. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
