  1. I'm on day 11 and I don't want to be a stereotypical quitter but I'm having a hard time imaging I'll make it the whole way. I just want to go out and eat and drink with some friends but I feel so trapped and like I can't go anywhere. It's not like I'm an alcoholic but I would kill to go out and drink like a normal 26 year old. I don't know if I like the all-or-nothing "good" or "bad" food mindset I've been getting into. I'm feeling so anxious about everything I eat, and paranoid about accidentally eating something wrong. I ate some cold cuts at a work lunch thing (picking off the bread and cheese) and I have no clue if I fucked up because something could have been in the meat or because it touched bread and cheese. I wanted that bread soooooo badly. I'm stressed out about planning meals and cooking everything. I still hate cooking and I hate washing dishes even more. I made this slow cooker recipe yesterday following all of the instructions and it tasted fucking disgusting and now I have 100 pounds of that sitting in the fridge. I don't have any specific dietary or GI issues; I just wanted a way to eat a little healthier, reduce cravings for snacks and sweets, and eat more at home but I think this may be more trouble than it's worth. I don't want to feel like a failure and a quitter but I don't know what to do.
  2. Breakfast Advice

    Thanks for the ideas! Soup might be okay when it gets colder but I think the smell of any meat in the morning makes me nauseous. And I'm a weirdo who doesn't like bacon or any kind of fish. I guess there aren't really any non meat or egg protein options? I miss dairy lol. Guess I'll try a hard boiled egg again!
  3. Breakfast Advice

    Hello, I am in need of assistance about breakfast. I am on day 6 of my first Whole30 and so far doing...okay. I am definitely feeling the negative side effects mentioned (I'm exhausted even after doing nothing) but I haven't eaten anything non-compliant. My biggest struggle is breakfast: I cannot stomach having a big, full meal. I'm not a morning person and before this I wouldn't always eat breakfast, and if I did it was cereal or oatmeal, maybe yogurt (plus or minus fruit). The idea of eating eggs or anything hot and cooked literally makes me feel nauseous. Even a hard boiled egg turns my stomach. So far I've been having a banana and black tea. I know it isn't ideal but it is the only thing that doesn't make me feel nauseous. I was thinking of adding some almond butter as well (I am really missing peanut butter, ngl...). Any other suggestions for something light and easy? Thank you!
