  1. Eating too much?

    Hi everyone! I'm on day 8 of my whole30 and am starting to have concerns that I am eating too much. I'm 5"4' and around 130 pounds. I work out 6 days a week doing a half hour of strength training followed by 10-30 minutes of running, and I throw some HIIT in at least once a week. I'm also pretty active working full time on my feet all day. While I'm definitely not sedentary, I feel as though I may be justifying eating too much due to my activity. A typical day of meals looks like this: Preworkout @7am: hardboiled egg Workout @7:30 (typically don't do a post workout and try to get breakfast in shortly after) Breakfast: A bell pepper stuffed with 2 eggs, 2 servings of egg whites, and a half avocado served with 2 cups of mixed vegetables and 3/4 cup mixed fruit Lunch: 1 chicken breast, 1 egg, 4 cups mixed vegetables, and a half avocado Dinner: Sometimes up to 5-6 cups of veggies (is this overkill?), a chicken breast or serving of 93/10 ground beef, 2 eggs, and a half avocado *All mixed veggies do contain a lot of starchy vegetables (typically sweet potatoes, carrots, butternut squash, brussel sprouts, broccoli, and asparagus) In the past 2 years I lost around 80 pounds from a lot of restriction and am hoping to restore my healthy relationship with food. I am not used to not tracking calories, so maybe I'm being over analytical. However, despite feeling good, I can't help but think I won't be able to heal my relationship with food if I'm overeating. Any feedback would be appreciated, thank you!
