bookluvingbabe Posted March 3, 2013 Share Posted March 3, 2013 So, the first time I tried I got to day 21 before I fell face first into a box of Valentine's Day Chocolate. DH knew I was doing the Whole 30 but it didn't compute that Valentine's Day didn't equal chocolate. And I take full ownership that I made the choice to eat them. We've talked about going primal or paleo before. He's severely overweight, depressed and has sleep apena. Though he's promised to take action in the past, he hasn't. When it came time to reboot (I took a few days to get my act together), I asked if he wanted to join me. He agreed. But he doesn't want to read anything or really know much about it beyond the list of things he can't eat. Today is day 7 and he still doesn't want to eat veggies with each meal and he is skipping meals here and there and he's snacking more than he probably should. All on 100 percent compliant food, but still. Saturday am I made scrambled eggs in coconut milk for everyone (6 year old son too). I made asparagus too. He ate the eggs but skipped the asparagus. I took the kid to the farm store to buy 10 dozen eggs for the next two weeks and do the grocery shopping. Home for lunch and DH declined to eat. We all went to Costco ($75 worth of apples, avocados and other fruits and vegetables.) and then dinner time. Roasted chicken and brussel sprouts. DH ate a ton of chicken and 3/4 of the sprouts. Little boy went to bed, and DH started scrounging for more food. First he wanted a larabar. I suggested a sweet potato. He went with that and a little proscuittto. He was full after that and skipped the larabar. So minimal veggies, no fruit and 2 real meals and one mini meal. He says he feels okay. He likes the money he's saving at work since I pack his lunch. He hasn't had any sleep improvements. He'll stick it out but I'm not sure how to help him get further by following the guidelines more. Sigh...
