I know I just posted yesterday, but I'm really inspired by my Paleo results and have been re-motivated and I'm thinking about doing a Whole 30 soon. Like probably in April.
How is a Whole 30 different from Paleo? It's basically the strictest form of Paleo possible. The foundations stay the same - no grains, no sugar, no dairy, no legumes - but, it's a little more strict on the "no sugar" part. No maple syrup, no honey, no agave nectar, etc. Now, I had my fair share of pancakes and waffles covered in maple syrup last month, and some assorted baked goods with some honey in them. But I don't think it should be too tough to cut out that small amount of sugar for a whole month.
Also, when you do a Whole 30, they say you should avoid Paleo-fied versions of non-compliant foods - so that means my pancakes and waffles are out for breakfast. Which puts me back into a breakfast conundrum for a month.
Of course I could just eat poached eggs with my smoky sweet potato hash every morning for breakfast. I could, but I don't know that I'd want to. I could do all-fruit smoothies, but I would need some kind of protein or fat to get me through till lunch. I will figure something out.
Lunch and dinner won't be a problem. I can pretty much just keep eating what I've been eating. I might start to experiment with some salad dressings in the next couple of months to have some rabbit food variety when I do the Whole 30.
So that's the next big thing I'm planning and I'm so excited. The only thing is - can I go a whole month without cheating? I learned a lot of lessons last month doing Paleo. And I think I can apply them to my Whole 30 month and be more successful.
Monday I go back to the gym. THAT'S IT, IT'S FINAL, IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN. I even bought new Asics that are dying to be worn. I miss the gym. A lot. I need to get back on track. Plus maybe it will help boost my weight loss some more. :) That's the plan anyway.
