I'll start of with my stat changes....
Previous Waist Measurement: 26.5"
Current Waist Measurement: 25"
Previous Hips: 36.25"
Current Hips: 35"
Waist and Hip measurements were the most changed, but I did lose .25" off each of my thighs as well. I'm very pleased with my results, especially since I wasn't tracking my food like "normal". I feel like this is sustainable, long term.
Overall: The Whole30 made me much more aware of all the mindless eating I was doing. It was worth doing, just to clarify that one thing for me. It also confirmed what I already knew about my trigger foods and about the balance of carbs I need. I personally struggle with mood and overeating issues if I get unbalanced in that department. Something to be aware of and watch.
Going forward: There really isn't a whole lot I plan on changing. I'm going to test out some dairy, see how my body reacts. I'll probably stick with homemade coconut milk in my coffee in the morning, because I enjoy it. I'll continue subbing things out, looking for alternatives that I truly enjoy eating. Making things from scratch is a habit I'll continue as well, because I like knowing what is going into the food the family and I are eating. If there is something that really, really sounds good, I will probably indulge, but that should be few and far between. While it will be nice not to be as hyper aware of EVERYTHING going in my mouth, I'm pretty comfortable with where I'm at with my eating too.
