    Trouble falling asleep

    Not *terribly* far off whole30, occasionally ice cream or a glass of wine, but most breakfast/lunch meals reflected whole30. Felt myself slipping a little more than usual the last few weeks though, which is why I started another Whole30. Typically my work outs are in between breakfast and lunch, so I have been eating larger meals as opposed to pre/post workout meals. Haven't had any energy issues due to this. I am on my period though--didn't even think about that considering it has never given me sleep issues before. Might have to wait this one out and see how I feel next week. Thank you for your insight!
  2. I am on my third whole 30, day 6. Each whole30, I experience new issues (not sure if that’s normal), but unfortunately this time it is sleep. I toss and turn for HOURS before I eventually fall asleep. Typically I go to bed around 11, no phone, computer, etc. for an hour before, and sleep in a dark room. It’s almost like a get a second wind at night—I’m not even tired until about 1-2 am and I need up by 7. Thankfully I’m a college student so I can still decently function with the whole “no sleep”, but it would be nice to not have to battle with this for the next 24 days. Here’s what a normal day looks like for me: M1~ 8 am: 2 egg omelette with spinach, tomato, and pulled pork. 4 oz Naked green machine juice. M2 ~ 12-1 pm: spinach salad with sliced chicken breast, 1/2 avocado, hard boiled egg, cherry tomatoes, and tessemae’s avocado ranch (about 2 Tbsp). Glass of iced tea. M3 ~ 6-7 pm: about 8 oz pulled pork, large baked sweet potato, cup of green beans or stir fry veggies IF I snack, it’s usually a handful of cashews with some berries or melon. (Try to keep my fruit low sugar). I also cook my omelette, chicken breast, and evening veggies in olive oil for extra fat in my meals. Exercise is either a morning run, or morning lift at the gym. Usually 5-6 days a week. This is typical for me—hasn’t changed during whole30.

    Stomach pains throughout day

    Thank you both for your insight! @Kristab I believe it was the almonds! I wasn't really eating them in excess, probably just a handful/day for a little extra protein and fat, but I have cut them out over the last 4 days and the stomach pains have vanished.
  4. Today started day 16 of my whole 30. This is my third time doing whole 30 and I have never experienced the stomach pains I am having before. Sometimes it is followed by gas (which somewhat relieves the pain, but not completely) and sometimes it just persist without any relief. They can get so bad that it makes me just curl up in a ball, not able to do or focus on anything. Here's a rundown of what I've been eating... Proteins- steak, 90/10 hamburger, chicken, pork loin, eggs, almonds as snacks Fruits- clementines, pineapple, cantaloupe, bananas Vegetables- broccoli, cauliflower rice (in small amounts), carrots, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, red potatoes, spinach, romaine lettuce, guacamole, onions (green and yellow), bell peppers As snacks (not every day)- gogo squeeze applesauce, cashews with a small amount of fruit, epic bars
