My Take on the Whole30
There is so much information out there it puts our brain on overload and we end up doing nothing or nothing that is right for our bodies. This is the reason I want fASHionably fit to be a resource for you. I will never preach something I haven't tried or advertise for a crappy health program. I love helping my friends, gym members and clients decipher through the craziness. If you know me, you know I don’t believe in cleanses. The body is an amazing thing that can do so much for us, as long as we give it what it needs from us in return. You must nurture your body and love it. The Whole30 is the perfect program to reset and assess how food makes you feel, the perfect chance for nurture.
How did you get started?
I bought the book on my kindle. Read the entire thing. Then I ordered the cookbook and picked the dates on my calendar. Believe me, there is NEVER a perfect time so just go for it! YOU CAN DO THIS!!!
Why did I do the Whole30?
I did the Whole30 for a couple of reasons. I wasn’t feeling right and I needed to figure out why. Resorting to medications or a diagnosis was not the route I wanted for myself.
My Symptons Included:
Sleepless and restless nights
Bumps on my legs
I was feeling like I was hit by a bus daily and my body felt like it. What really led me to doing it was when I read someone else’s story of what they were going through and I was like WOAH…that is me.
Is it hard?
'' It is not hard. Don’t you dare tell us this is hard. Quitting heroin is hard. Beating cancer is hard. Drinking your coffee black. Is. Not. Hard. You won’t get any coddling, and you won’t get any sympathy for your 'struggles. '' -Whole30 Authors, Melissa & Dallas Hartwig
Now I would be totally lying if I said it was a walk in the park. It isn’t but as the book helps to guide you, it’s easier to put it in life’s perspective and just go for it, while embracing the positive journey you will be taken on!
