Whole30 Diary
I am using this thread to log my personal account of each day as I follow the Whole30 guidelines for a month.

This is mostly to have a personal food log and diary to guage how I feel each day...but any input is appreciated.

My goal is to see if any foods are triggering: joint pain I've experienced over the past 3 years, frequent acne and sinus/allergy issues.

Good luck on your journey. My friend is doing it currently and really enjoying it.

Cacao nibs


Where do you get these from and where are they usually located in the store? I checked Rouses (local grocery chain) and walmart and couldn't find them. Is this something I have to go to Whole Foods or buy online?

I got them at Whole Foods, but you can get them at Trader Joe's and sometimes even at TJ Maxx or Marshall's.

ehhh. i enjoy whole 30. we've been probably 75% whole 30ing for the better part of a year.

as long as my wife knows that asking what i had for breakfast is off limits. i can do whatever for lunch and dinner, but bitch best keep her questions to herself when it comes to asking what i had for breakfast after a 10 mile run.

Target has them. In a bag at the end of the fresh produce aisle.

Nibs are $6.50/lb at farmers market (Decatur GA). I'm eating some right now. Or just skip the tater and eat some 88-90% cacao chocolate that actually tastes good. Lol.

That not exactly "on plan" with Whole 30.

Gotcha. I won't get into picking apart a plan that allows an entire baked potato but not 90% cacao....

Keep it up. Whole 30 is a great way to start from a baseline. I wish more would "drastically" cut and find out what happens on the other side.

DAY 2
6 MARCH 2018

Breakfast
3 Eggs
7oz Venison Sausage
1/2c Blueberries
638Cal/18C/36F/61P

Lunch
Veggie Salad with Lemon and Red Wine Vinegar
Thunderbird Bar-Pecan Goji Pistachios
294CAl/37C/14F/12P

Dinner
7oz Venison Sausage/sundried tomato/garlic
2c Vegetable Medley sauteed in 1tbs Beef Tallow
1/2oz hazelnuts
1tbs Trader Joes Sunflower Seed Spread
756Cal/25C/50F/52P

Snacks
Jackson's Honest Sweet Potato Chips
180Cal/22C/11F/1P

Day Total
1,868Cal/102C/111F/126P

Thoughts:

Lack of food prepping/shopping is severely hindering me and I must do that soon. Sadly, its been a crazy busy week.

I know the sweet potato chips and snack bar are not in the spirit of Whole30, but they are made of compliant ingredients and without them I'd have been severely lacking in calories for the day.

All in all, I felt good all day, despite the low lunch calorie and protein total.

Look into getting an ALCAT or Alletess blood test that can check to see if you have food sensitivities.
They can check over 200 foods along with herbs, food additives, and colorings.
