It's day 31! I survived my Whole30 and today, I've added just a small amount of non-Whole30 approved foods to my breakfast and lunch. On the recommendation of the people who created this program, I am adding one food group at a time over a period of days so that I can determine how each one makes me feel after not having had them for thirty days. So the science experiment continues!
I guess my idea of going hog-wild and eating Crown Burger first thing was definitely out of the question.
The first food group they recommend adding back in is dairy so, this morning, I used butter instead of ghee to sautée my vegetables. And I served those vegetables with a few slices of bacon! Oh, how I missed bacon (I never did find a bacon that didn't have added sugar).
And there will definitely be a cheese snack later in my day.
I didn't just do the Whole30 to lose weight. In fact, it was pretty darn low on the reasons I was doing it to begin with. But I will admit!! I was pretty happy when I stepped on the scale this morning and saw that I'd lost weight all while eating good-tasting and healthy foods. So here they are... My results from my first Whole30:
- Pre-Whole30: 162.2 lbs. Post-Whole30: 156.4 lbs (I lost 5.8 lbs... I'm just shy of 5'9").
- I have more energy. I'm sleeping better. My skin looks more radiant. And I swear my eyelashes have gotten longer.
The one thing my Whole30 definitely did not touch? I'm still wicked impatient. I guess a change in diet can't change a trait in personality.
