“Hey, it’s been almost a year. Let’s do Whole30 again. It’s so fun.”
Okay, so that’s not really how it went. It really went, “my pants don’t fit, I’m the heaviest I’ve been since I was pregnant, something’s gotta give and I need structure.” So there you have it. I’m doing my fifth Whole30 and I started on Monday. I’m calling this a modified whole30, because of a few reasons.
- The obvious – I’m doing it to lose weight and that’s totally not the premise of a true Whole30.
- I already know what my body doesn’t like, so I won’t be doing reintroduction like a true Whole30.
- If I go out to eat and want bacon on my bun-less, cheese-less burger, I’m going to have bacon even though it might have a little added sugar in it.
- I’m still taking my supplements. I take this to regulate my blood pressure and you better believe I don’t drink this stuff for the sugary taste. My bp is more important than the tiny bit of stevia that’s in it.
