I think the 2nd week of Whole 30 must be when your mentality starts to change. The first week I kept looking at this as something temporary. I'll do this for 30 days - the end. And it's not that I'll be doing this permanently, but I'm certainly not just going to start eating all the crap I was eating before again. One of my main goals now is trying to see if I can figure out what kinds of foods aggravate my Crohn's the most. I don't know that I'll ever figure it out precisely, but having the "baseline" of Whole 30 means I can slowly experiment with adding things in - not all at once - and see what bothers me. The biggest change I've noticed to far is how much better my stomach feels. I'm not having nearly as much trouble with my Crohn's as I was pre-Whole 30. That alone is reason not go back to eating how I was before. Hopefully I can get some answers with this!
