Here I am on the morning of day 6 of The Whole 30. So far it hasn’t been as bad as I expected. I have been craving carbs the past few days though. I miss my morning oatmeal and my PB & almond butter sandwiches for lunch. And last night some corn bread would have hit the spot with the bean free sweet potato chili my wife made. Yesterday I took my daughters to a movie. They were eating some Mike & Ike’s and I was pretty tempted to have a few. But will power prevailed. I have to say though I feel like I have been sleeping better and have more energy throughout the day. Come day 30 I don’t see myself staying Paleo, like I said, I miss my oatmeal, bread, quinoa, and cereal. But cutting out sugars will likely remain.
The Whole 30
Starting tomorrow, Oct. 1st, my wife and I will begin “The Whole 30.” A strict paleo diet designed to “reset the digestive system.” It’s going to be a fun but tough experiment. I’m going to miss my almond butter and jelly sandwiches, quinoa, and rice. I will be posting updates regularly. Stay tuned. http://thenakedplate.org/helpful-hints/
