Heather HF Posted March 4, 2013 Share Posted March 4, 2013 I have been complaining to +myself (and sometimes others) about needing to clean up my diet. I knew what I needed to do, but kept coming up with excuses. On February 28, a facebook friend posted that she was starting the Whole30 the next day on March 1, who wanted to join her? I posted about how I needed to, but didn't see it happening. And then kept thinking about it all day. That night I committed, with very little preparation. I went to the store and bought a flat of chicken that I baked that night, and some produce, eggs and almonds. No time like the present, right? Day 1 took me out of the house for a good part of the day so my afternoon "meal" consisted of almonds, raw veggies and a pear. The detox headache started at about 5 pm, and sent me to bed early. Day 2 was horrible. I felt hungover, really was beyond functioning. Luckily it was Saturday, so my husband was able to hold down the fort and was quite supportive, including cooking my eggs for breakfast while I stayed in bed. I found myself wide awake before 5 am on Day 3, with my headache fading. I was actually able to be up and working, albeit a bit slowly. My food discovery of the day was that I really like sweet potatoes with cinnamon, no butter or sugar necessary. Who knew? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
