    Alcohol and Whole30 Issues

    I know I'm not eating enough or drinking enough water. Here's the run down which is sketchy since I stopped logging my food, etc on day 17: 4/4 – 6:45 coffee w/coc milk 8:00-8:45 Walk 2 miles – 16oz water 9:15 – 2 fried eggs, on a bed of spinach, handful of raspberries 12:30 – Chicken salad (homemade mayo, red onion, celery, apples, walnuts) on a bed of spinach, ½ avocado, herbal tea Nuts as snacks during the day (I know ☹) 7:30 – 1 pork chop, ½ sweet potato, Spinach salad with onions and cherry tomatoes, Homemade Italian dressing 8:30 - Bengal spice hot tea 10:30 bed – Terrible stomach ache with acid feelings. Slept only 4 hours because of it 4/5 – 5:45 Coffee w/coc. Milk 7:30 Business breakfast (ugh) scrambled eggs (only ate one bite as there was milk in them) 2 pcs. Bacon, 1 sausage, 1 strawberry, 2 pcs cantaloupe, 2 pcs watermelon, 1 cup of coffee black, 16oz water 10:30 – 2 hardboiled eggs, 1 cup coffee w/coc milk, ¼ grapefruit 11:00-12:30 – nap 12:30 – 2 scoops of my chicken salad 5:30 – 1 baked chicken thigh, 1 chicken leg, bed of spinach, cherry tomatoes, red onions, 1 hardboiled egg, homemade raspberry vinaigrette dressing Not feeling well all day, same stomach burning and slight nausea 7:30 – chamomile tea 9:00 bed with ½ trazadone (sleeping pill) 4/6 - 6:45 – very hard to get up 7:45 – homemade nut Lara bar, coffee w/coc milk 8-8:30 – 2 mile walk 9:15 – 2 scrambled eggs with spinach, 4 pcs bacon, ½ grapefruit, 1 coffee w/coc. Milk 10:00 1 small baked potato with ghee (I thought maybe I needed carbs) 11:30-1:00 nap 1:30 – 1 chicken sausage, ½ avocado, 1 homemade Lara bar 48oz water 1 packet of EmergenC in 16 oz. water (maybe this will help me feel better?) Still have a stomach ache and burning. Very lethargic and my body aches all over. I still have sugar cravings, so that's where the homemade Lara Bars come in...they help, but I know they are actually not helping. I think the Bengal spice hot tea might be the's been my go-to beverage after dinner. Thanks for the encouraging words about my abstinence. Maybe I shouldn't have taken this on so soon after stopping drinking? Any help you can give me is appreciated!
  2. Hi, I need some help......I am a serious chardonnay drinker (20+) years. I quit drinking 30 days prior to starting the W30, but I wanted to know if this program is harder for those that are addicted to alcohol. I am on day 25 and I'm really struggling with depression, lethargy crankiness and stomach upset. Is my body still trying to detox from the wine as well as foods with sugar? I don't want to quit since I'm so close, but this has been going on for several days now and want to know if it's normal. Thank you.
