So today I’m starting the Whole30 Challenge.
If you are not familiar with it, its basically like the Paleo Diet but with somewhat stricter guidelines for the 30 days. I am doing this to get a handle, hopefully, on what is causing my breakouts.
If you would like to read more about the Whole30 Diet then you can find information in this PDF http://whole9life.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/the-official-whole30-program-whole9life.com.pdf
You can also visit the website of the creators, Melissa and Dallas Hartwig at http://whole9life.com/about-us/
They created the program to help change your life in 30 days through nutrition, basically. “Think of it as a short-term nutritional reset, designed to help you restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, calm systemic inflammation and put an end to unhealthy cravings, habits, and relationships with food.”-Whole9
It won’t be easy because I have to try to keep my weight ON while cutting out sugar and potatoes!!
The gluten/grains, not a big deal I cut that down tremendously over the last two years or so. It’s the sugar and potatoes that I LOVE!!!
Here’s to Clear Skin! I’m documenting my progress with pics….not on here, but just for personal use…so I can see what will happen.
I’m not eating any nuts though and I’m going to eat nightshades on a limited basis as well as eggs and coconut milk.
If I don’t clear up like I want to after my 30day trial then I’ll eliminate one of the three (nightshades, eggs, coconut milk) to see if that helps!
Stay Blessed and Stay Tuned!
