Thanks to this 30-day detox, I learned to appreciate food and the energy it brings me. I’m not saying I ate crappy before, but I never particularly tried to eat healthier. I stuck it out and it seems like it's going to become a lifestyle. You’d be surprised to know that delicious, wholesome foods don’t necessarily need any of those ingredients at all!
Although these claimed benefits may appear very attractive, it’s worth keeping in mind that there are currently no scientific studies backing them up.
Week 4 went about as smoothly as week 3 in terms of how challenging eating was. I was happy to have figured out one allergy that was causing my problems, and was curious to see what was going to happen the next week when I added each food group back in (You have to add food groups back in separately. For me, I was adding them back in a week apart).
At the end of the day, I kept realizing that I just felt better. My stomach wasn’t getting upset nearly as often, so I was feeling hopeful that I was finally going to crack the case. I was only eating three meals and one healthy snack a day, and I was eating higher quality foods so I was staying full for longer. It also helped me be conscious of the small things that I usually snacked on without thinking twice.
In addition, the diet recommends that you avoid recreating your favorite baked goods, snacks or treats — even with Whole30-approved ingredients.
While I finally discovered the carbs that still tasted good and that I was allowed to eat, being gluten-free began to change the way that I snacked. Instead of picking up my usual carb-loaded post-work snack, it made me get creative with what I was eating. I started eating healthier things, and incorporated more nuts, fruit, and veggies into my diet.
