The Whole 30 isn’t going that great, if I’m being honest. I’ve “cheated” numerous times – mostly with coffee creamer and stevia, but once with pizza and ice cream. Going out to eat is too hard and I like wine.
So I’m still sort of half-assed doing it and while I haven’t been exactly following the program, I have made some positive changes to my diet. The first and foremost being that I haven’t had a Diet Coke in over 2 weeks. Aside from the stevia, I haven’t really had any sugar at all and that’s been a really positive change. Also, this program has really helped me stop eating off Alexander’s plate.
I find that I don’t miss dairy or grains as much as I thought I would but I do miss just being able to eat something quick and easy like a yogurt in the afternoon. I’m also realizing that I don’t really need to snack as much as I was. When your only snack options aren’t… snacky… the desire quickly fades.
As far as the negatives, well, I haven’t lost any weight. Probably due to an over consumption of coconut and almond butters. I don’t even like coconut butter. But it’s just a pain mostly. I’m sick of eggs in the morning but I don’t know what else to eat. And also, I’m not losing any weight. Did I say that before?
Have you ever done the Whole 30? What did you think?
