Well we did it! We finished the Whole 30! After doing our weights and measurements and such, Greg has lost 24 lbs and I have lost 18. More importantly I feel fantastic, and haven’t been sick in 30 days! No antacid, no anti nausea, nothing.
The day after we finished I decided to try some coke out of curiosity, and it tasted like I had a mouthful of powdered sugar. Disgusting. Considering that I used to drink almost 20 oz a day, I would say that is an an improvement!
We are now a full 10 days out and we haven’t gone back to our old ways. On Easter I lost my mind a bit and ate some Easter candy and felt so sick I won’t be doing that again. It just wasn’t worth it.
I have added some dairy back in but no real gluten or legumes. I haven’t decided if I am going to add those in or keep the dairy. I’ll have to see!
The biggest differences I have noticed is that with salads, all I dress them with is a squeeze of lemon, and it tastes wonderful. I also only drink my coffee with milk, no sweetener. Both of those things are HUGE.
I have now started doing a bunch of research on Pinterest for Paleo recipes and will be testing some out and reviewing them here, and just trying to live the Paleo lifestyle!
Thanks for anyone who is reading for reading and hope you continue!!
