I spent the day yesterday planning as I gear up for is going to be a huge undertaking! A half a year of the Whole30 eating plan. Meat, veggies, fruits, nuts & seeds, and healthy fats… for 182 days!
This is slightly terrifying me.
I feel like it’s one of those things that’s good in theory – oh, I’ll just eat clean for half the year, and then hopefully it’ll cure my IBS, insomnia, relationship with food, etc. etc. No big deal, just 182 days.
One of the things I regret the most from my summer round of the Whole30 was that I felt that I had to follow the reintroduction protocol after 30 days…. I did my 30 days perfectly, and then on Day 1 post-Whole30… okay, reintroduce dairy. As soon as I had cheese again, it sent me on a downward spiral of ice cream & sugar dragon, and I haven’t been able to get out of it since. I would have just been so much better off if I had kept going.
So that’s what I’m going to do, starting Monday! AHHH!!
