Good morning!

I have officially completed my Whole30 challenge and thought I would share a few things I learned over the course of the challenge, feel free to share your thoughts and encourage others to take on this "strictly-paleo" approach.

  • The first three days my body was getting adapted to its new "diet". Although I spent too much time in the bathroom IMO, stick it out, it's worth it!
  • When you haven't eaten anything sweet, sweet potatoes start to taste and feel like marshmallow-god-sent-gifts.
  • My n=1 is that high fat + high protein = big headaches. I shouldn't be terrorized of carbs in the form of vegetables or fruits.
  • PORTION CONTROL YOUR NUTS. They're tasty things and it' easy to end up doing through that whole bag of cashews.
  • I can stomach dairy without any problem, however, wheat/gluten is a whole other thing. I tried some porridge after the challenge and it was apparent that I was intolerant to gluten/wheat.

Anyways I just wanted to tell anyone who's on the edge about paleo to give this challenge a try and see how it goes. It's a great way to get accustomed with your body and nix some toxic habits (IE sweeteners in my case).

Good point, thanks for the correction. That was a bit of a brain explosion... ;)

Cashews are *not* legumes. They are the seed of a fruit (and a culinary nut). The are not even remotely close to the plant family fabaceae.

Cashews aren't nuts fyi. They're legumes (and both starchy and fatty). Anyway I'm glad to hear someone being well ;)
