    Whole30

    Hey guys - I'm starting my second round of Whole30 today - anyone else done it? Have thoughts on it?

    I haven't done that program specifically, but I have been trying to adjust my eating habits to cook more whole meals and eat less sugar/processed foods.

    My emphasis has been on slow, incremental adjustments rather than cold turkey cutting out everything at once. I'm not sure committing to 30 days at a time would work for me, but some people prefer that style. My only advice would be to keep a meal log. I find it helps me feel better about my choices as well as feel more "full", because I can see how much I've really eaten. Even without counting calories and just noting what I'm eating, it's helped a lot. Having someone check that log periodically also helps keep me accountable.

    Best of luck!! Second round sounds like it's going well

      Brunsonja - I like the whole30 being "cold turkey" only because I'm the kind of person who needs strict or absolute rules to be successful (just a little Type A lol). But I totally hear your point too - I'm not sure I'll sustain it after the 30 days but I have to admit I've always felt my best after cutting out dairy and processed foods - even though I love cheese lol

        fatgirlonamission I gave the Whole 30 book a peek on Amazon and those who reviewed the book (3K+) mostly gave it high marks. It seemed too restrictive for my tastes, but if that is what works for you, then go for it. I tend to stick with recipes from the Fit Couple Cooks YouTube channel. Speaking for myself, and only myself, I think staying away from processed crap and restricting sugar are the most important things for me. Brunsonja, I've just decided to start keeping a meal log and I think that really helps too, especially with snacking.

          I have done multiple rounds of the Whole 30 and had great success on it. I love it as a tool to figure out what foods my body reacts to. However, it isn’t sustainable for the long term. I am unwilling to live my life without ever having bread again. This kind of restriction causes me to binge. It’s not pretty.

          Right now I’m working on tracking my calories and eating in moderation. This seems to be the path to true food freedom for me.

          I hope you find yours.
