First, some history.
I've never had to diet in my life.
Somehow, I have always been thin. I enjoy my chocolate, and my ice cream. I gained every bit of 35-40 pounds every time I was pregnant. And it always melts away. I just eat when I'm hungry, and if I crave something, I have a little bit of it.
But lately, I cannot get enough sugar. I feel as if I'm searching for it. All. Day. Long.
My husband and I have been trying to eat healthier over the past year or two, and the harder I try, it seems the more I want sugar.
So, I am going to challenge myself.
Enter Whole 30. Have you heard of it?
It is basically an extreme version of the Paleo diet for 30 days. (Paleo= meats, veggies, and fruits; no sugar, no grain, no dairy.) You can't make any substitutions, like banana-egg pancakes, or grain free brownies.
Currently, I'm spending my time searching out meal plans and recipes. It's overwhelming to me. Every meal I enjoy has pasta, cheese, or cream in it!
Say a prayer for me. And my family. And share any recipes or advice you can spare!
