Ra_k_ Posted July 1, 2012 Share Posted July 1, 2012 After spending the last 7days mulling over the Whole30 program, and working out if it will fit into my lifestyle for the next 30 days. I am here and on DAY 1!!!!! A little about me. I'm a 26yr old female, who loves being active. I weight train 4-5 times a week, and try and do sprints 1-2 times a week, and throw in the odd hill climb. I lead an active lifestyle, i walk to work most days, i try to be as active as possible at work, which can be difficult in my office job. I have also been diagnosed with Arthritis of the spine. i don't have any symptons at present, but they can come and go. I have been on high doses of fish oil which helps. i am also trialing a new vitamin and mineral drink to see if that can help. I'm gluten and lactose intolerant, so as result tend to eat very closely to Paleo. I'm in the process of completing my studies in nutrition, with a focus on naturopathy. I've given up sodas, and artifical sugars in the last 2-3months. I'm 163cm and weigh around 64kg. I'm going on my dream holiday to Europe in 1month and 22days (haha i'm been counting since 26weeks). I'm worried about my holiday and not being able to control my meals, as i'm going on a tour for 20days, and its mostly catered. I will need to find some ideas for eating over there. But in the meantime i'm looking to get down to 60kg before my holiday, and i feel this Whole30 program might just do it for me So here is Day 1's food: pre-workout: small piece of chicken post-workout: 50g berries, 1/4 cup egg whites, 40g sweet potato mash, 1 cup water, mixed together like a smoothie. The sweet potato doesn't have a flavour when mixed with the berries, and this was actuallly really delicious. i used to love my protein powders mixed with egg whites, but i think this might be a new favourite.... Breakfast: 3 egg whites, 1 whole egg, 1 cup bean sprouts, 1 teaspoon coconut oil, 70g chicken, 1/4 capscium Lunch: 1 teaspoon coconut oil, 5g minced garlic, celery stalk, carrot stalk, 50g boccoli, 100g bokchoy, 1c bean sprouts, 1/2 cup zucchini, 12g sultanas, 125g chicken Dinner: 1 t coconut oil, 5g minced garlic, 50g broccoli, 50g green beans, 1/2 cup onion, 70mls coconut milk, 100g white fish Snack: 1 black tea sweetened with a dash of pineapple juice, 1 serving of tangy tangerine (vitamin and mineral supplement) No real snacks is going to be hard for me to get my head around. i'm used to eating a few meals a day. But i'm feeling greta soo far. So bring on the rest of JULY!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
