I’ve always been an emotional eater. From as young as I can remember food has been either been a “treat” or “healthy”. I’m one of those people who goes out for dinner and drinks when I have a great day, or sits on the couch with a bag of crisps and bar of chocolate when I’m having a rubbish day. Because of my emotional attachment to food I always try to live by the 80/20 rule. However sometimes that 20% becomes more like 30% or even 40% – which isn’t healthy!
Just After my Yoga Class when i was collecting my yoga towel i heard somebody talking about the Whole 30 Program and as a lover of fitness and health I did a little research into it. It turns out that Whole 30 is a strict Paleo style eating program that lasts for 30 days. Whole 30 is designed to reset your body back to it’s healthy functional way. I decided to download the book and read up on the benefits of Whole 30. There was a whole chapter about emotional eating and the endless cycle that your body gets tricked into as a result and it described my eating habits perfectly. As a result I decided that I would start Whole 30 as soon as possible.
EAT REAL FOOD! Eat meat, seafood, bundles of vegetables, a little fruit and plenty of good fats from fruits, oils, nuts and seeds!
So what should you not eat? No sugar. No alcohol. No grains. No legumes. No dairy. And do not try to re-create baked goods, junk foods or treats with “approved” ingredients.
I took fruit for breakfast, then made a big salad of spinach, peppers, carrots, cucumber, chia seeds and guacamole. I chopped up all the veg for the week and kept it in a Tupperware at home so in the morning I just throw all the different ingredients together to make my salad.
