Yes, I am horrible at keeping up with my blog and I've been meaning to update... really! However, late is better than never so here's my reap on my Whole30 experience.
First, I want to apologize for leaving the last 9 days blank, but the last nine days were about the same as all the other days. I didn't experience anything different from before. After my Whole30, I did lose weight, but not anything significant. Honestly, I was a bit disappointed because my experience was not like all the testimony I've read about. I didn't experience the "tiger blood" nor the crazy cravings for food I haven't had in years. The only thing I did experience were the headaches at the beginning.
How Whole30 helped me was learning about how my body works with food. My cravings for sweets went down dramatically. I used to have some sort of dessert right when I get home (i.e. ice cream, cakes, etc). I would even eat sweets that I don't like. It was bad and I recognized it too. Now, I am able to pass on the desserts and not want the sugary stuff anymore.
I am also eating breakfasts every day and that was something I didn't do before. For most of my life, I went without breakfast (unless I was going out to meet up with friends or have brunch). I was never really hungry in the mornings and a cup of coffee in the morning was suffice.
My recovery from my workouts are a lot faster than before. My soreness usually goes away by mid-day the next day after my work out. I would wake up sore, but feel great and normal by 11AM. It's not a bad thing when I'm usually sore all the time.
So would I continue to do Whole30? I'm not sure. I've been debating about it for a while. Currently I am still on Whole30, but I am not sure for how long I'll keep this up.
