Day 13-15 Whole30 Diet – Weekend Meals

Day 11 & 12 Whole30 Diet – Meals & almost half way there!

Really proud of myself for sticking with this program.  For some reason when trying other diets and counting calories for everything I ate, I never seemed to stick to the plan.  I tried MyFitnessPal.com and never could remember to enter all meals.  On the Whole30 I am accountable for the food I eat as I…

Day 10 & 11 Whole30 Diets – More meals & deals

The Whole30 blog was right, Day 11 is much easier than Days 9 and 10.  For some reason many folks on the diet have a rough time those two days and I did as well.  I think my body was getting rid of the final bad carbs, sugar and dairy that I have been eating…

Day 6 & 7 on the Whole30 Diet – Coconut Flour Biscuits

Refreshing Drinks on the Whole30 Diet

I was majorly addicted to sugar, dairy and carbs when I started the Whole30 program!  I would drink a ton of diet soda, regular soda, specialty fruit drinks like Izze’s from Whole Foods that were packed with fake sugar and real sugar.  This would give me a temporary pleasure but now I see, after 5…
