  1. I'm on day 7 and I have had no appetite since day 1. Because of this, I'm a little worried I'm not eating enough because I also get nausea and headaches every day. Is there a way to increase appetite or adjust meals to make sure I'm eating what nutrients I need? I'm kind of tired of feeling bleh/sick every day. Here's an example of what I might eat in a day: breakfast: hash browns cooked in ghee with apple chicken sausage (breakfast is a huge struggle and I have to kind of choke it down lol) lunch: half a large apple, 3-4 strawberries, ~1/2 tbs sunbutter, -1 tbs pistachios, 3 slices deli turkey dinner: pecan crusted chicken breast pan fried in olive oil, spaghetti squash or potatoes and carrots, small serving of fruit I've been trying to increase veggie intake but I really don't like most vegetables (texture issues) and it's even harder to force myself to eat them when I'm not even hungry. I've been needing a snack (usually a banana) between lunch and dinner. My lunch break is at 11:30 am. Any help would be much appreciated!

    Blood Sugar Issues

    Thanks, I'll give that a try! It might take me a few days to work up to putting veggies in there haha, but I'll see how that goes. I appreciate your help!

    Blood Sugar Issues

    Thanks for the recipes! My issue is not so much about feeling full as it is making sure I'm getting the right amount of foods to keep my blood sugar level. (I have found that meals that work for lots of people don't always work for me.) That, and hopefully doing away with the nausea haha.

    Toast with jam or peanut butter, or special k protein cereal.

    Blood Sugar Issues

    I do eat meat! I like pretty much any meat. I eat it at lunch and dinner, but just the thought of it in the morning makes me feel sick. Before starting Whole30, I didn't have blood sugar issues between breakfast and lunch but now I'm struggling with nausea so I would like to do something to manage that.
  6. I'm on day 2 of Whole30, and I'm already having nausea issues. Some background: I'm 28, female, 5'6 and 154 lbs, coming from a diet where I ate a lot more carbs (pasta/bread/rice) and sugar than I should have been. I also have blood sugar issues - I have the same symptoms as hypoglycemia, which runs in my family, but in 2011-2012 I did regular blood sugar checks and never noticed a real pattern. The endocrinologist was super unhelpful and just wanted to treat my symptoms rather than the underlying cause, which lead me to managing it on my own via protein and carbs (though as I mentioned before, not the best carbs). Plain sugar (like fruitsnacks) doesn't help me reset, just makes me feel slightly better for a short period. That being said, I realize Whole30 is a whole system reset and is going to be rough for me, but I want to manage my symptoms in the best way possible. I was thinking eating more 'good' carbs like sweet potatoes might be helpful. Breakfast is awful - I managed some hash browns today, but attempting eggs yesterday was terrible. I'm not sure if I can stomach any meat yet (I used to eat toast or cereal for breakfast). If anyone has any suggestions, I would super appreciate them!
