It’s flatter, right? Like you wouldn’t book me a Victoria’s Secret shoot but you also wouldn’t turn to your friend and whisper “elephants should not wear bikinis.” Regardless, I like where this is going and I don’t want to stop. After my weigh-in, I still ate myself a Whole30 approved breakfast and lunch. I’m enjoying this Paleo lifestyle and while I know I could never commit 100%, I’ve got a solid foundation now for a daily diet.
My family comes to visit this weekend and we have a lot of meals out. I don’t plan to order a side salad and grilled chicken but I also think I may indulge in only one, not all, of the Whole30 contraband foods. And then, come mid-September, I’m off on a three-week trip to Europe. If Italy is anything like I’ve heard, I’m not going to get out of there without consuming at least a few pieces of pizza and pasta. But who knows? Maybe I’ll feel like my stomach is going to explode and run all over Italy looking for the bathroom (note to self, find out Italian word for bathroom), since many former Whole30ers reported such reactions after eliminating and then reintroducing these types of food. And at that point, it may not be worth it. Or, maybe I’ll feel full but happy and know that once I’m back in the good ole’ US of A, I won’t be eating this way and my noodles will once again become zucchini in disguise.
