I have been reading a lot about the Whole30 program for about a week now. I am very curious, and have done quite a bit of research about it. So I have made the decision to dive in and give it a go. I have a couple of things to do before I actually start the program, like clear out all non Whole30 foods, and make a menu and grocery list.
Although I am vegetarian and gluten/soy free, I have substituted wheat/gluten with other carbs, and it seems I am eating them more lately. I have always thought I was a healthy eater, but since I hit my mid 40's I have been steadily increasing my weight. Also with menopause my midsection is growing constantly. I have gained almost 10lbs since September, and have had a number of medical/emotional issues lately too. I have been in the throws of vertigo for the past 5 or 6 weeks, having taken the last 2 weeks off. I have a bladder infection, headaches and my allergies have just flared up again in the past 2 days. The vertigo makes me anxious, and not really having had anxiety in the past, it scares me!!
So I was looking for something to help me, and somehow came across the Whole30 suggestion. I have put it off because I feel I am not prepared, but from all that I have read, it has been suggested that I will never really be prepared and I should just dive in right away. I had told people that I need to use up my dairy and gluten-free bagels before I start, but I think that is just a cop out. I will offer these things to my neighbours and friends.
