SarahEmily Posted February 17, 2013 Share Posted February 17, 2013 Day One So I had a week or so away from whole30 eating (after about 2 months of eating mostly whole30 approved foods) and I consumed dairy, chocolate, some artificial sugar, some real sugar, even some gluten which I'm not suppose to have. I tried to blame it on the stress of my summer exams, but I know it's really my own fault and should probably learn how to deal with stress better! One thing I noticed when eating "other" foods again was that now I can no longer stand artificial sugar after not eating it for a couple months diet drinks now taste really yucky and I am no longer addicted to chewing gum! Woooo! I also didn't have the same response to real sugar as I have had In the past, there was no huuge urge to go out and buy cookies and biscuits and every sweet thing known to man. I still over indulged in chocolate and raisins, but it hasn't been as bad as it was in the past. My diabetes has been a bit of all-over-the-place since I went off whole30 eating, so that is one of my main motivators to get back to it so fast. The whole30, despite being so "restrictive" has been the most helpful tool I have used so far in order to gain back a more healthy relationship with food. I really want to be able to get to a point where I can just eat 1 chocolate bar and not worry about it etc, but maybe the best thing for me right now would be to tackle the next 30 days again. Again the biggest challenge for me will be the alcohol!!!!!! Over the next 30 days, I will aim to: >Exercise 4x per week (by going to the gym and walking to uni) >Record my food diary daily (set aside time each evening at 8.30pm to write in my journal) >Try out at-least 2 new recipes (on grocery days, try out a new recipe for the week 2x this month) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
