From fat to fit – The Whole30 Results

I am feeling good today. As you know I have been eating  the Whole 30 way and today, well today I finished it. Yey Go me!

I went a Whole30 (geddit) days eating no grains, no gluten, no dairy, no refined sugar, no legumes.

I just ate clean, unprocessed food.

Good quality protein in the form of meat, seafood and eggs,

lots of healthy fats – think olives, avocados, healthy oils (no seed oils),

and shedloads of veggies.

I have been eating this way for a month and I have definitely felt a difference in my energy levels, and that is despite the fact I am up most nights feeding the baby Bear.

Anyway enough of that lets get to the good stuff – my results.

Drumroll please!

Now. After 30 days on Whole30

After 30 days on Whole30

Weight pre Whole30 ~ 64.5kg

weight now ~ 59.6kg

waist before ~ 33.5 inches

waist now ~ 30.5 inches

hips ~ 41 inches

hips now ~ 38 inches

arms ~ 11 inches

arms ~ 10.5 inches

In 1 month I’ve lost 3 inches from my waist, 3 inches from my hips and half an inch from my arms.

And I’ve not been starving myself or calorie counting and I have been eating enough to sustain breastfeeding the Baby Bear as well as exercising, and I’ve not been restricting carbs.

I’m nearly at my pre pregnancy weight now too.

I’m pretty happy with that!

    Well done Rhian, you look fantastic. I’ve heard so much about paleo but wasn’t convinced. I might just give it a try! Xx

    • Hey Cynthia, thanks so much. I would highly recommend it, the best bit being that there is no calorie counting involved and I’m not hungry ever.
      Give the book ‘It starts with food’ a read as its a good introduction and explanation of the whole thing.
      If you do try it let me know how you go.
      Hope you and Mark are well. Xxx

        Hey Rhian, Mark is good thanks! I really need to shed some pounds, gained so much recently due to a neck injury so was completely sedentary for 3 months!!! I love good food and hate feeling hungry so hopefully me doing Paleo is win win! I will let you know when I start! My love to the family xx
