  1. Hangry to bloated and back again EVERY DAY!

    Of course, the only other thing I can think of is I'm intolerant to something on the days I feel sick? Also in my regular life I was a sometimes vegetarian, so I am eating way more meat now.
  2. Hi, I am on day 5 of my Whole30. I am struggling with a. not snacking, and b. eating enough at meals to prevent snacking, but without feeling like I'm exploding. I have a fairly efficient metabolism, and in my regular life, usually eat 4 small/medium meals (usually 2 breakfasts-1 small early and 1 small at around 10), with 2-3 small snacks throughout the day. I was always told this (grazing) was healthier. I have also learned to listen to my body, and stop eating when I'm not hungry anymore. However, since I started this, if I stop eating when I'm not hungry anymore, I get MAJOR HANGER. If I force myself to eat more so I can last to the next meal, I am. so. full. and my stomach hurrrts and I feel bloated and gross! What the heck! Here are examples of meals: salad with kale, arugula, green lettuce, 1/2 avocado, hemp seeds, cashews, cucumbers, carrots, and dressing- ate at 1, felt full enough, starving by 3. roast chicken, mashed potatoes, roast veggies and salad- ate at 5, hungry by 8. zoodles, tomato sauce, and meatballs- this was definitely our most satisfying meal yet. pork tenderloin, roasted veggies (squash, broccoli, carrots)- at 5, felt like I ate "too much-" felt really full and yucky, MAJOR HANGER by 8. salad with arugula, kale, green lettuce, roast chicken, apples, squash, almonds, dressing- ate at 12:30, SO FULL I feel gross. That's today, I don't know when I'll be hungry yet Help!!!
  3. Hi! My name is Katie and I live in a small town in BC, Canada. I'm starting Whole30 with my husband and some friends. I describe myself as a "picky-tarian" because previously when I lived in a larger city, I had easy access to quality meat and organic produce etc, and I ate that almost exclusively. Now, I live in a small town where the grocery store doesn't even have a butcher, and few items are available organically/farm raised/ocean safe/etc. When I started thinking about doing the Whole30, I was going to do fish, eggs, and yogurt, because yogurt has been really important to me. But after reading a bunch of stuff on the forums, I've been convinced that I should do only one or the other, so I'm doing the "regular" with no beef, and very little pork and poultry. I'm excited!!
