When I decided that I was going to go 30 days with “no junk” I honestly never imagined the response I would get! I know that regain is a HUGE issue in the WLS community. In fact, there are more people who experience regain than who lose all their weight and keep it off. But I’m making a choice to no longer be just “one of the statistics”. I’m going to change something. I’ve GOT to change something.

The decision to go Paleo isn’t a new one for me – I’ve done Paleo before. I always feel AMAZING on it. So that was a no-brainer for me. But the decision to start out my transition into Paleo with the Whole 30 was a really hard one for me. You see, I struggle with “diet addiction”. I’m pretty sure most of you know what that is, or at least can make a fairly educated guess. Let’s just say that diet addiction was a leading cause to my obesity. Some day I’ll write about how many diets I’ve been on (and, surprisingly mom has been on even more than I have!). So, needless to say, starting the Whole 30 was  a very harrowing decision, and one that I didn’t take lightly. But, for me, the strictness of the Whole 30, I truly feel is what is going to help me to break through some addictions (can we say SUGAR-HOLIC). An I definitely prayed about it. A LOT.

As far as meal planning goes, I plan to keep it simple. At least for the first week or so. For me, it helps to not get TOO crazy with things when I’m trying to change my eating habits. Also, keeping things fairly simple will allow me to make batches of foods and eat leftovers throughout the week!

My plan includes breakfast and lunch for one, and a dinner meal that will have enough for a family of four with leftovers.

So, without further ado, let’s get into this week’s menu!
**NOTE – I AM ORDERING A PRODUCE BOX FROM THE LOCAL FARMER’S MARKET, SO THE VEGGIES USED FOR THE WEEK WON’T BE CERTAIN AND MIGHT CHANGE LATER IN THE WEEK. IF THEY CHANGE, I’LL POST AN UPDATE IN OUR 7 BITES FACEBOOK GROUP**

Snack options (ONLY if needed!!) – handful cashew or almond nuts, handful grapes, OR Cashew Cookie Lara Bar
