Whole 30: Days 2-5

Oh boy, am I going to be obnoxious. Oh well, what irritates some delights others. I’m having fun taking pictures of my meals and may end up documenting this 30-day process much more intensely than I planned.

  1. Hey Ashley,

    So, I ‘ve been trying to hold the line on the diet for my month of onramps as well. I’ve done some reading (probably not as much as you though) and find some conflicting info, depending on people’s opinions. Cured meats like bacon, ham, smoked fish, etc are frowned upon due to the sugar and salt used in the process. I think these things in moderation are probably fine. Also read about potatoes and how some say no, and some say just limit your intake. I get the concept and like it but don’t intend to be a kamakazi paleo guy.

  2. Terry,

    I completely agree with you. I think this “diet”, like any other, is about finding what works for each person. And a lot of it is about goals. People looking to lose a lot of weight tend to vilify potatoes and fruit, but that doesn’t mean we all have to. I don’t have a problem with yams, squash, even white or red potatoes. I don’t think I even have any issue with butter or cream, but it’s probably time for me to find out. And the cured, uncured meat thing? I hope to one day be able to afford caring about such things! I just do my best. I like deli meat from Boar’s Head at Fred Meyer and I like bacon from Albertson’s and I take a whole bunch of fish oil 😉

    1. I think if you are careful and make sure you balance the fruits and veggies with the protein, it’s a very healthy diet. No bogus bullshit like Atkins that says all carbs are bad. Bodies just don’t work that way. Good job Ashley!
