OK confession time...One week ago I started a secret whole30. I gave up everything that I listed on the previous page. I didn't want to tell anyone what I was doing because everyone was advising a moderate approach. That makes sense for most people I guess, but I have been Primal for over 15months and I was ready to go full on Paleo. I was also afraid that I would fail.
Observations so far. I've dropped 7 lbs. (Yes it is weight that I had already lost a few times.)
I did not die from lack of artificial sweetener. I've found a few teas that have a natural sweetness due to spices.
My bad leg is not blown up to twice the size of the other anymore. In the morning it looks almost normal (dumping nitrates?).
Emotions stable. Urge to binge lessened. Better sleep.
