iomchris Posted April 10, 2013 Share Posted April 10, 2013 About 2/3 of the way through my second Whole30. Finished first one about six months ago, and for the first three months or so I was pretty happy with my eating habits. I occasionally ate things that are off-plan, but felt generally good about the frequency and it never seemed to lead to a chain reaction of bad decisions or anything. Then slowly my habits got worse and worse. By the end, I was still eating significantly healthier than I was a year ago, but there was no doubt that the balance was nowhere near what I would consider ideal. Most concerning was certain unhealthy things had become regular (a daily latte, for example, or a small bit of chocolate most afternoons -- concerning both for the chocolate intake and for the reliance on a mid-afternoon pick me up). So this time I want to have some firm strategies in place to be sure I don't find myself slipping up more and more the farther removed I get from from finishing the Whole30. To that end, just curious how many people actually have hard and fast rules? Like, x number of off-plan meals /snacks per week, or only off-plan at restaurants, or things like that. Or how many people just sort of do it by feel and it works out? Ideally I'd rather be doing it by feel but not sure I can pull it off. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
