Hello fitness friends,
So I finished two rounds of Whole30. Delighted with the results. Now that it’s over, I have been trying new foods and old foods. What I have learned is the non Whole30 foods do not satisfy my hunger. I eat them; I am still so hungry.
Last week I tried pizza and I was famished later. The calorie content was far higher than my normal meal plan and I was so hungry.
There is something to be said about whole foods. They are packed with nutrients and fiber. Our bodies respond to healthy food like great fuel. Clean eating does a body good.
My plan is to return to a Whole30 plan on Monday. It has been the most effective program for fat loss I have ever done. I have lost over 30 pounds. It’s just beyond what I expected. I did not exercise beyond walking.
I think we need a break sometimes, to just eat those favorite foods. I also see how sticking with a program is beneficial and changes the way we view food. I prefer eating whole foods and feeling great over processed foods and feeling crummy!
My encouragement is to not allow a cheat meal to become a cheat lifestyle. Think of the progress you have made, don’t shrink back into poor eating habits.
If you struggle with the restrictions of Whole30 or clean eating, try an 80/20 approach. 80% of the time eat very clean, 20% of the time splurge a bit. Your body will thank you for eating clean!
To your health!
