Whole 30 is a diet that has been all over the place lately. I’ve seen many bloggers reporting on their results and I really love the idea of it. But truthfully, it’s not something I think I can handle.
In theory it sounds very healthy, except I don’t agree that dairy, grains, beans and tofu should be cut out.
I also like the idea of the 21 Day Fix diet for portion control. There doesn’t seem to be a list of foods to avoid, so I’ll be using Whole 30’s guidelines. For the month of February I’ll be avoiding processed foods and alcohol, and limiting the rest of the No list.
One of my biggest goals for the month of February is limiting sugar along with processed foods, along with trying to get more fruits, vegetables and nutrients in general. I’m attempting to curb my sweet tooth and carb intake. My one cheat will be one piece of chocolate per night max.
It’s definitely going to be a challenge eating more protein and fewer starches and carbs, but I’m going to give it a shot. I’ll be looking for inspiration from Whole 30 and 21 Day Fix recipes and meal plans.
Have you tried either one of these diets? Do you have any favorite recipes?
