So, my long awaited Whole30 challenge began today and unfortunately my body decided to conk and I am suffering from a really crappy cold today.
I have not allowed it to ruin my Day 1diet wise however, but it is sapping my energy all the same and the lack of appetite has meant I have not really eaten much. I suppose it has meant I have not been craving anything bad.
The first day of a Whole30 is always challenging - especially if you are giving up refined carbs and sugars for the first time. It is completely normal to experience a small crash during the afternoon if you have not added enough fats to your meals. It is important to add this so you feel satisfied until dinner time.
I suppose the biggest challenge for me today was not having milk in my tea. Although I am a fairly strict Paleo most of the time, I do allow myself milk in tea only and white potatoes from time to time. I got through it though and I think I will be drinking more black coffee this month rather than tea.
Remember apart from tea and coffee you can only drink water. Drink as much as you can as it will help flush out bad toxins.
My Day 1 Menu
Breakfast: 2 pieces of bacon, 4 cherry tomatoes and 2 eggs scrambled in the bacon fat.
Cup of black coffee
Dinner: Baked buttered salmon with coconut oil roasted vegetables
As I said, my appetite has been poor today and I had to go to bed mid day so I ate less than usual.
Hopefully things go better for me tomorrow!
How did your day go guys?!!
