No sugars or grains. No dairy or legumes. Yep, I’m doing the Whole30 for the next 30 days. Here’s how it’s going:
Oh, life-giving nut butters.
On Day 4, I felt so wretched that I finally broke the Whole30 rule of “no calorie-counting” and counted those calories, and I wasn’t eating nearly enough. By 200 to 300 calories every day. So I looked over the list of approved foods again and decided to spend the cash for some sugar-free, preservative-free nut butters.
Worth every penny.
Yesterday and today have been so much better. My appetite has leveled out (just a little hungry before bed), my will to live has come back, and I’m sleeping like an Olympic sleeper – falling asleep earlier and staying asleep throughout the night.
It’s so good.
I think I’m actually going to live through this.
What I Ate on Days 5 and 6:
- Breakfast: Veggie omelet (onions, peppers and spinach) and a banana
- Lunch: Grilled chicken salad with lettuce, tomato and avocado
- Snack: Apple with sugar-free almond butter
- Dinner: Grilled pork tenderloin, baked sweet potato, steamed green beans
