Whole 30 Day 13 - Nutritional self education

Hi all,
This is Rina. I have been working with Sophia for the past 6 months trying to spread the word about the wonderful Grass Fed Jerky Chews. I have been eating a pretty clean Paleo/Low Carb diet for the past few years, but still decided to jump right in and try the Whole 30. I'll be blogging daily about my experience for the next 30 days.

I am feeling pretty good today.

Watched some good lectures on YouTube on The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate living. A short lecture by Dr. Stephen Pinney was really useful and practical and another lecture by Jimmy Moore, who talked frankly about his own weight gain and common mistakes while on Low Carb.
It's a long lecture and I am watching it in segments

I had my two eggs with avocado and cucumber for breakfast, but then I made a mistake and let myself scarf down almonds with cashews. I didn't measure. I think it was around 2-3 oz of nuts. No more nuts for me. I have to get myself busy and out of the house. 

I am pretty full though, from all those nuts. Skipped lunch. Was pretty full till 7 pm. 

Had chicken strips cooked in coconut aminos and spiced with some salt & pepper and leftover steamed broccoli with zucchini cooked in tomato paste, mushrooms and greens. Left me feeling full. 

I was very thirsty all afternoon and am still pretty thirsty. Drinking PLENTY of water.

One more day. I am not missing dairy at all.

Note to self - need to eliminate nuts. They are a trigger food and thus dangerous for me.
