Holy Crap! I'm doing it. Update 2

Update:

Sticking to this has been fairly easy. My fatigue is GONE! Week 1 weight loss = 5.7lbs. Week 2 weight loss = 1.7lbs.

Total lost = 7.4 lbs.

So, I'm doing this challenge called the Whole 30 Challenge. My husband and I are using it as a jumpstart to better diet habits. Anyway, it cuts out all processed foods. No gluten or grains at all. No dairy. No added sugars or sweeteners of any kind. A limited amount of legumes. Pretty much the only allowed beans are green beans and snow peas. Nuts and seeds are okay, but limited as well. All clean foods. There will be some things we will reintroduce after the 30 days is over.

We have completed 2 days and it hasn't been too bad. We are going through some withdrawal symptoms, but we are hanging in there.

I need accountability, so I am talking about it everywhere.

If anyone has any good recipes that would be compliant, I would love them.

I'm using photos to evidence we are maintaining compliance. Another form of accountability.

Night 1 dinner.

Blackened catfish, baked sweet potato, avocado grapefruit salad with a grapefruit balsamic vinaigrette.

Your body will love you!  Fresh beets.  Pick them up at a farm market as they are a root vegetable which are now in abundance and loaded with all things fabulous.  Google beet recipes and go to town.  Full disclosure, to me fresh picked beets are a delicacy.  Good on you regarding accountability...I totally get it! :)

Tried paleo...failed miserably. Hard as f*ck to stick to especially on a limited money budget and not everyone is sharing the same meal plans.

GOOD LUCK TO YOU THOUGH. The first month of healthy eating is the hardest.

Good idea! I love beets. I pile pickled beets all over my salads.

Thanks!
