I didn’t realize how quickly I’d notice change in my energy levels or my sense of taste. So wild!
I’m convinced most of my diet pre-Whole30 was leftover food from my kids or sneaking a bite of something while I was making it. It probably happens to a lot of moms. We are always thinking of ourselves last. We are often hungry without even noticing it until suddenly you’ve eaten a whole pouch of fruit snacks or chugged a container of chocolate milk. I didn’t realize how impulsively I will take a French fry from a Happy Meal, finish a few of the kids’ chips/fruit snacks, or lick the batter from a spoon. All of these little snacks add up to a big problem with lots of bad empty calories. It’s nice being more conscious of this not so good mom habit.
