Best way to reset?

vanessa7 | Jan 6, 201803:17 PM     6

Now that Christmas is over, I’m ready to get serious about my diet and goal of losing 30lbs this year (baby weight, holidays....) and I’m thinking about the best way to reset. I did a Whole 30 last January and found it to be a great experience (lost 15lbs and felt great), but I’m not sure I want to do it again. It was great to not calorie count and just focus on eating real, nutritious meals, but I didn’t care for ghee and I also want to move to a more plant based diet this year so I don’t want to cut out steel cut oats and legumes. I also like yogurt fruit smoothies and milk in my tea so I am not sure if I need a break from dairy completely. I didn’t find the Whole 30 too hard, but it was a bit annoying not being able to eat a cupcake at a birthday party. I am thinking perhaps I should just take a break from sugar, bread, and cheese. I love the “French Women Don’t Get Fat” way of eating and I don’t want to yo-yo diet, but I certainly struggle with self-control at times. I’d like to get back into running too so I do need to make sure I’m eating enough food. Are any of you doing resets that are not “Whole 30” or dieting?
