Whole30: the results are in…

I said from the very beginning that doing the Whole30 was not about weight loss for me. So I am very happy that after my post-Whole30 weigh in on the super snazzy body scanning scales at my gym, I have discovered I am exactly the same weight as I was the last time I took the reading exactly six weeks ago.

There have been some changes over the last six (or I rather, I would assume, four and a bit) weeks though, which again I’m pretty happy about:

Stats from 10th July:

• My BMI is stable (18.5 vs 18.6)

• My weight is exactly the same (well 300g difference, so we’ll say exactly the same)

• My muscle mass has increased by 1kg

• My body fat mass has decreased by 1.6kg

• My body fat % has decreased by 2.8%

I would say that the first two weeks of the thirty days were pretty light on the exercise front too, because I was so GOSH DARN TIRED. I’ve only got back into the swing of 3 runs plus 2-3 cross training sessions a week in the last week or so, so I’d be really interested to see what might happen if I actually focused on exercise as well as what I’m eating and drinking.

I’m taking these stats with a relative pinch of salt as it is over such a short time period, but I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that what you fuel your body with has a massive impact on it and its performance. So here’s to continuing to fuel it in such a friendly way…
