limejuicy's W30: 6/19 to 7/18


Recommended Posts

Day 19

Seriously going stir crazy being stuck at home. Hungry all the time for no reason except that I'm bored and kinda depressed. Kept it to all good food choices though!

Meal #1: 2 eggs, leftover carne asada and spaghetti squash hash, iced coffee w/coconut milk, frozen blueberries w/coconut cream

Meal #2: baked salmon w/greens, capers, lemon juice & EVOO

snack: leftover drumstick from last night's dinner. 1/2 cup of coconut milk

Meal #3: couple pieces of prosciutto, some olives and TWO experimental recipes from Well Fed! the cumin spiced carrots and the cocoa toasted cauliflower. Both were yummy, but that cauliflower was to die for! So glad I have leftovers. Seriously people, if you haven't bought Well Fed yet, DO IT.

Day 20 (yesterday)

Meal #1: 3 strips of bacon, two eggs, leftover cauliflower and carrots, black coffee

Meal #2: salmon on greens w/olives, lemon juice & EVOO. berries and coconut cream

Snack: larabar (totally a stress snack!)

Meal #3: garlic ground beef w/sauteed zucchini, bell pepper and jalapeno (surprisingly delicious!)

I really am enjoying my meals and eating this way. I look forward to cooking now and with getting creative with my meals. That said, 10 more days!! I am looking forward to being a little less strict, but I plan to continue to read labels and avoid a lot of the icky stuff as much as possible (hidden soy, sugar and sulfites).

Day 21

Meal #1: 1 egg, ground beef & veggie stir fry. small handful of blueberries w/coconut cream. black coffee

Meal #2: (10:45) mini early meal due to having a doctor's appt. some prosciutto, greens, olives, lemon juice & EVOO. Iced americano

Meal #3: (4pm) we were an 1.5 hr away from home, so we went out for Indian food. I had some great lamb kabobs and veggies, though I'm sure the veggies were cooked in a non-compliant oil. I did NOT cave for naan or the fried chicken appetizer my husband was freaking out about (OMG THIS IS THE BEST CHICKEN EVER). He was hungry.

Snack at home: berries and coconut cream. handful of cashews pretty difficult day medically, not really hungry.

Day 26 (yesterday)

NOT a good day. I was late and as a result was limited in my food options and constantly hungry. BOO.

Meal #1: 3 hard boiled eggs eaten in the car (including peeling). I have no idea how I managed that.

Meal #2: Nick's Stick, salad from Rubios - ordered it w/grilled chicken & extra guac, but then looked up their chicken online and it has MILK, SOY, and WHEAT?! What?! Tossed the chicken and had the salad w/salsa and lime as dressing. larabar

Snack: Coconut chips and a few cashews

Meal #3: 1.5 applegate farms hot dogs, sliced beets, tomatoes and avocados. banana w/almond butter and sea salt....seriously one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten (the banana desert that is). SO. GOOD.

According to the scale today, I have lost 4 lbs. However, I weighed myself last week (I know, that was a no-no) and had lost 7 pounds. I think I have some hormone related water weight gain. Either way, 4-7 lbs lost was not planned and is a bonus! All of my clothes are loose and I think I dropped another pant size. :) I feel great, my cellulite has been reduced, I have more energy and I sleep sooo much better.

What I have learned/tips for others:

- Plan ahead! Do a weekly cookup of proteins and such on Sundays. ALWAYS have a supply of good food in the house and a few things that can be thrown together in a few minutes.

- EAT FAT. Do NOT be afraid of the fat. Love it, eat it, enjoy it!

- Don't count calories!! Just worry about picking good foods.

- Carb/sugar dependent people - have lots of starchy carbs on hand to make the transition easier. Sweet potatoes, beets, root veggies, squash.

- Eat a LARGE Meal #1. It makes a difference.

- If you are feeling foggy, up your carb intake. I found that I need to eat starchy carbs and fruits daily to function the best. Everyone is different.

- READ the labels on everything. There is sugar in just about everything and soy too! I find it disturbing that I can't buy a can of tuna that doesn't contain soy from my grocery store. p.s. dextrose is sugar. If you don't know what an ingredient is, google it on your smart phone before you buy the product.

- Coconut products make me happy, they might make you happy too - coconut oil, coconut butter, coconut milk, unsweetened shredded coconut. Get it all and keep it on hand.

- Get creative with food and recipes. Don't just eat eggs for breakfast, eat meat and veggies or leftovers or whatever.

- Have a "treat" item on hand for when your sugar cravings are out of control...I know this might be not really W30 approved, but honestly, I'm now used to hitting my treat of frozen berries w/coconut whipped cream instead of grabbing chocolate or ice cream. That is the kind of habit I was hoping to develop with the W30 so I can continue to make good choices.

- Read It Starts With Food

- Buy Well Fed. follow her website theclothesmakethegirl.com

- Check out PaleOMG.com's main dish recipes. Most of the other recipes aren't W30 compliant.

- Use this forum, it is so helpful!
