Wellfie Wednesday: One Size Does Not Fit All
When it comes to diet plans, it is best explained by this week’s Wellfie Wednesday: One Size Does Not Fit All! I like the fact that the Wellfie Wednesday crew also does not like calling it a diet, because much like the word pain, we have sort of demonized the true meaning and definition. Our diet is simply the food we choose to consume. If you are trying to change an eating behavior, I like to look at it instead as an eating pattern or eating habit. Which is exactly what my wife and I have done.
WHOLE30 Eating Habit
So by now, many of you have read my blog posts, or seen my social media posts regarding Whole30. For a poor attempt at a summary, Whole30 is an eating habit that eliminates sugar, carbohydrates, and processed foods for 30 days. After those 30 days you can slowly reintroduce certain foods to see how they affect your body and you can decide what to do with that information. I don’t do affiliate links often, but the few I do are for products or books or courses I believe in, and I truly live this one:
I started my Whole30 Journey with:
We then went and bought the Whole30 Book (which does a good job of combining the It Starts with food book and some recipes)
We have now moved on to the straight cookbook, and tinkering around with some of our own recipes too (some of which I post on this blog sometimes)
So if you are interested in Whole30 and would like to support the blog, click a link and pick up a great read that can transform your life.
ONE THING I LEARNED TODAY:
I am down to 316 during this current Whole30 and #FreeTheYoke #SummerOfMove competition. I still feel like I need to push a little harder on my workouts, because although my weight loss has been slower than most of my previous Whole30s, I feel as though I am actually gaining strength. The bottom line is, when it comes to eating habits, you have to find one that works for you. Taking advice from multiple sources can be confusing at times, so find what works for you and stick to it. For my wife’s Type-1 Diabetes, Whole30 seems to be working best for our family, so we’re sticking to it!
