I’ve been checking out the Whole30’s eight steps to becoming paleo. It’s pretty intense! They don’t allow any sweeteners, even natural ones like honey. No white potatoes, and worst of all- NO PALEO BAKED GOODS! Aahhh! I understand their reasoning for this rule. They want people to break bad habits of eating sweets and unhealthy junk foods.
I guess I would be willing to give up everything but meat, veggies, and fruit for 30 days. The problem is that I can’t eat most veggies, even cooked. It’s part of my IBS symptoms. I love veggies, but they really hate me. I may not be able to manage the Whole30 version of the paleo diet. I like having the info as a baseline, though, and keeping as close to that line as I can.
