So if you have been following me I recently did a Whole 30.  My goal going in was to just fight off my sugar craving.  I had been making healthier changes here and there over the past 5 years but the sugar one was a big deal to me and I knew it would be challenging.  So here is the rest of the story…

Week 1 was a little challenging.  I did have cravings and I always felt hungry.  By week 2 the sugar cravings started subsiding and as of today I don’t really have them at all.  Today is over 30 days into the program.  I could start introducing things back into my diet to ‘test’ them with my body, but I don’t really want to.  Now don’t get my wrong I’m going to eat some things that approved here and there, think Paleo, just so my body knows it is there.  I don’t want to go on vacation without a lot of good options and then get sick from eating.  I’ve learned to make better choices so tackling eating out more will be my next goal.

But….I’m staying on the program because how I feel!  I lost a little weight in my midsection, my digestive system started to improve and I can physically tell inflammation is down overall.  My back which has given me problems the past 5 years doesn’t hurt, like ever, for the most part.  I didn’t even notice it at first, but now it’s something that I just get excited about.  I feel great, I look great….why would I want to go back to the way it was before.

So if you are reading this, I encourage you to look up the program and do it.  I did it with a few other people and they are shocked at their own results.  I am even encouraging some friends to do it now as well.  So go for it…YOU are worth it!
