    @Mike5858 Thank you, that makes sense! Glad you're feeling better. I will ride this out and wait for that tiger blood.

    Hi everyone! Day 5 checking in. @Svmomma that chicken tender recipe sounds so yummy. I think I will try it for next week! @Nancy61 I've also been experimenting with non-breakfast foods for breakfast and I find that I am more satisfied that way! Everything was going well until yesterday when I started feeling awful. I have had a headache since last night and my stomach has felt a little queasy since yesterday morning. I am eating all 3 meals and following the meal template for pre-workout and post-workout meals. I did a 30 minute low impact, strength training class yesterday which is part of my normal routine. I usually walk home after but I felt so awful yesterday after the class, I had to get a cab. I had dinner, hydrated but the sick feeling continued into the night and I slept pretty badly. I feel a tiny bit better today but still not great. I am not sure if this is a normal reaction or if I am doing something wrong. Any advice?

    @kirbz Good job on navigating that happy hour! That a non-scale victory for sure. Today is definitely the worst it's been so far. I am tired and my brain is in a fog and I'm in a constant state of mild irritation haha.

    Glad to hear everyone made it through Day 2! I had an RX bar yesterday after my workout because I was so hungry and that is all I had in my purse and just could not wait until I got home. I felt like it was a slip-up because even though it is technically compliant, it did quiet down my sugar dragon. It is almost as though my brain could not tell the difference between an Rx Bar and a cookie. That just confirmed to me that while some foods may be compliant, what is more important is if they're within the 'spirit" of the Whole 30. Just thought I would share that. @Brad Cif you're active, the meal template says that the pre/post work-out meal is a special bonus meal that does not replace breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It is a necessary source of additional calories. Pre-workout is 15-75 mins before and should be a small amount of protein and a small amount of fat ( no fruit/ carb-dense vegetables). Post-work out would be 15-30 mins after and should be a lean protein + carb dense vegetable with little to no fat. It also says not to use fruit as a post-work out snack. Under forums sections of the website, there is a whole section dedicated to athletes and there are good tips and information for fueling appropriately.

    I am sorry to hear about your headache Glad you're feeling better and ready for the new day. Mine went well- I was craving something sweet after dinner so badly but I took a couple of deep breaths and had some tea and that seemed to work. Now that the first day is done, I am feeling a little confident. Have a wonderful and healthy day!

    Hi Everyone! Do you mind if I join you? This is my first time doing the Whole 30 and I plan on starting tomorrow (9/18). I am very nervous and trying to convince myself that I can do it. I was job hunting for a while and was very down- I spent most on the couch eating for comfort and I am hoping to develop a better relationship with food. I am constantly tired and will not stop eating crap. I am about to head and get some groceries and start on my meal prep.
