Well its day three of my Whole30 60 day challenge and things are going great! I have been eating what feels like a tonne of food but in reality it’s probably much less than before. I feel happy, satiated and content between meals.I haven’t noticed any real cravings at all yet either but the real test will be the week ahead of me as I start PMSing.
I’m eating three solid clean meals a day and I’ve had a couple snacks when I needed them. For the most part though the balanced meals have been enough. Breakfasts have been two eggs, grated sweet potato and some avocado, lunches and dinners have been varied but always following the meal planning guidelines. This is basically a stepped up version of the way I ate for most of 2013. Back then I was lenient on the types of oils, minimal gluten and things like natural chips; I also ate rice, legumes and quinoa! I experienced amazing results from just basically quitting sugar, dairy and cutting back on gluten for a few months, so I can only imagine how much the next 57 days are going to affect me.
It feels amazing to be back on track after so long! Before starting this program my anxiety had been really bad. I felt out of control and down on myself for it. I was stressing about every bite I ate and wanted to eat. Over the last few days however, I haven’t experienced any anxiety despite being at the end of another semester, writing huge final papers and looking for a new job. My skin already looks better as well! I’m so happy and I can’t wait to experience how good I’m going to feel on day 60!
Here’s a couple examples of my delicious Whole30 meals.
