Three weeks into Whole30, I was a new person. By the last day I knew that my life was forever changed. I felt AMAZING.
I am forever grateful to the Whole30 community as my first experience forever changed my life. I was on so many meds, my mind, body and spirit were not connected. I had chronic pain, TIAs, fibro, migraines and my brain was in a constant fog. I was searching for a solution when one day at the bookstore I came across the Whole30 Book. I glanced at it in passing, I couldn’t focus but was intrigued, that night, in my middle of the night scrolling on insta I saw it again and went down the rabbit hole. IT WAS THE BEST THING I DID! I had already started hiking when I wasn’t in agony, I was trying to get off my meds but struggling to do so. I was lethargic all the time but that night, there was something so absolute about my decision. I remember getting up and googling the food list and menu planning. I’ve always loved to cook so I was up for it. I batch cooked every few days, I moved my body everyday, and I practised gratitude.
One week into Whole30, I started to notice my inflammation going down, 2 weeks into I finally slept through the night after 5 years of not being able to. 3 weeks into Whole30, I was a new person. By the last day I knew that my life was forever changed. I felt AMAZING.
I took my time introducing foods, I knew if I wanted this great feeling to last I would have to methodically test everything. It took me another month to do so. It was worth it. Today I am med-free, pain-free and full of gratitude to this community.
I still do a round every January, some foods have forever been excluded from my diet, other foods I have in moderation. This program works if you work it. You are doing this for YOU so give it your all. You are worth it!
