WHOLE 30 UPDATE
Issue #1: We’re getting feedback. Mostly good. Some grumbling. We are amazed how much discussion is being generated by the modification of what to put in coffee. Look, if you can’t find a Whole30-compliant replacement for your coffee you aren’t trying hard enough or you lack creativity. If you don’t want to get used to drinking your coffee black try holding your nose and sipping it…at least you’ll get your caffeine. Seriously people, suck it up and complete the mission. You’re not going to die from improving your diet. In the immortal words of Yoda, “Do or do not. There is no try.”
Issue #2: Some of you are making me feel like a priest at Confession. If you ate something you were not supposed to eat just get back on the path. You are not “out” because you violated the guidelines, especially if you are new to this way of eating. This is a process. I’m not suggesting you give in to weakness or bad habit. If your mind and heart are truly in the right place and you consume something that is not Whole30-compliant, put it behind you and get back on the path. The more strict you do this program the more benefit there is. It’s not about punishing you. It’s about better health. The goal of the program is to provide a “cleaner” way of eating, clearing your body of unhealthy and unnecessary substances and discovering what foods will provide optimum performance and which will take you away from optimum performance. Stay the course.
Issue #3: Speaking of discovery…adhering to the Whole30 Program will also, if you’ll pardon me for saying so, help you discover who you are. Can you be strong in the mind and disciplined or will you be a slave to imagined hunger and habit? Strong or weak–discover who you are. The Program is only 28 more days. Ultimately, like your training, you decide what you’ll get out of it or what level of excuse-making is acceptable to you.
You are capable of making good decisions. You’ve entered the gym to improve yourself. It was uncomfortable at first. Maybe it is still uncomfortable. You do it though. You do it because the payoff is great, not because it’s easy. Improving your “eating lifestyle” is no different. Do or do not.–George
