Finding Food Freedom

I’ve successfully completed the Whole30 program three times, but I’ve never keep up my good habits longer than a couple weeks.

This time it’s different, and I can feel it.

It’s been 15 days since we completed the September Whole30. And I’ve kept the spirit of Whole30 alive while making “worth it choices.”

I love The Fold. It’s one of my favorite restaurants in Little Rock.

I like it because I can make good choices. If I want tacos, I get corn tortillas. The salads are huge and delicious. And they allow you to substitute or eliminate problem foods. For me, that is gluten and dairy.

Knowing those foods create problems for me is so freeing. Knowing I can still eat them from time to time and not feel guilty is even more freeing.

The Whole30 is not about depriving yourself for 30 days so you can “eat whatever you want.” It’s about learning your body and how it reacts to certain foods. It’s about understanding your habits toward emotional eating. It’s about stopping the binge eating of “foods with no breaks.”

Take control of your relationship wth food. Try the Whole30. It could be your saving grace.
