Today is Day 1 of my Whole 30 process.

Honestly, I really like no bull approaches, and this is definitely one of those:

Don’t tell me you “slipped”. Unless you physically tripped and your face landed in a box of Krispy Kremes, you DID NOT SLIP. You made a choice to eat something of poor quality. It’s always a choice, so do not phrase it as if you had an accident. You make a poor choice, even once, you’re out.

The general logic I think is unrefutable: If you haven’t really truly given your system the time to heal, how do you really know what does and doesn’t do your body bad?

I’ve eaten pretty close to paleo + dairy for more than a year. I say pretty close, because I drink 6-8 beers a month and have half+half in my morning coffee. Then once a month I’ll have some ice cream or one of those delicious DOC pizzas at Two Amy’s. However, I can’t say I’ve really seen the fat loss that I expected. I’m sure that part of this comes from chowing a ridiculous amount of almonds every day. But here’s the thing: I really don’t know. Until you try it cold turkey, and then slowly add things back you just don’t know what your body can and can’t get away with.

For now, coconut milk in coffee seems to work ok. Tastes a little different. Rather than mellowing the coffee flavor, it’s almost as if it draws it out more. I could definitely get used to it and not miss anything.

On a related note, I’ve finally found a consistent source of coconut milk. You know what I mean. Not having your coconut milk separated into solids and liquids while still in the can is a pretty big bonus ;-). After trying 6 or 7 different kinds, the “365 Organic” brand coconut milk is the only one that consistently makes the cut.
