    Day 5 - What is causing constant headaches?

    Okay, thanks guys! I can make these adjustments. Protein & fat before workout then protein & carbs after. Yes, the meals are keeping me satisfied for 4-5 hours. The only things is that I wake up in the morning starving. Like I've never been this hungry in my life in the morning. Maybe If I incorporate a post workout meal, then eat dinner that will help me be satisfied longer because I have been using my dinner kind of in place of my post workout meal. I will give that a shot. I did eat a bigger dinner last night, and my headache wasn't as intense this morning. Thanks!

    Day 5 - What is causing constant headaches?

    Day 3: Breakfast: Homemade Pork Sausage (3 small patties), half of avocado and 2 tangerines. Lunch: Salad (roughly 1.5 cups) of spring mix, a 4-5 oz chicken breast, the other half of the avocado, a handful of olives and a compliant salad dressing. Pre Work out Meal: a banana and 2 ish TBSP of nut butter Dinner: 6 oz steak, broccoli (1/2 of plate) and cauliflower rice with about 2 portions of ghee and a dash of coconut milk Day 4: Breakfast: Homemade Pork Sausage (3 small patties), and an apple with nut butter Lunch: Chicken fajitas with lettuce wraps. (About 1.5 peppers & a chicken breast) with guac (1 whole avocado & half of tomato) Dinner: 2 pieces of bacon wrapped Pork tenderloin, 5-6 whole roasted carrots & a baked potato with ghee on it Day 5: Breakfast: Homemade Pork Sausage (3 small patties), half of avocado and 2 tangerines. Lunch: Salad (roughly 1.5 cups) of spring mix, a 4-5 oz steak, the other half of the avocado, a handful of olives and a compliant salad dressing. Pre Workout: A banana and a small handful of cashews. Dinner: Chicken Avocado Burger, about 1-1.5 cups of butternut squash, and a salad with olives, cucumbers, and tomatoes with compliant dressing Just in writing this I realized: I'm not eating post workout meals. Is that important? I feel like I shouldn't need them because I typically make dinner within a 1-2.5 hours.
  3. So today is day 5 of my first Whole30. The headaches aren't super bad, but they are constant throughout the day and I cant seem to shake them even with OTC. They are worse when I first wake up. When I eat, they go away for about 30 mins, but return shortly after. Before you ask about my water consumption, drink on average (more most days) 97 oz of water (mostly plain, but some sparkling). I dont drink coffee or even soda before I started this. I exercise a lot. I run 3xs a week, Strength Train 2xs a week, and get at least 10k steps a day. Before starting Whole30, I was eating fairly clean, I had been making a lot of changes in the last year health wise and have lost 47lbs, and chose to do this in order to get refined sugars out of my system. I get about 1 migraine a month, and occasionally a headache or two, but OTC meds normally help with both. Any suggestions on what is causing this? Will this go away? Any thing I can do to help them? Is this normal? Is this a "this to shall pass thing?" Thanks in Advance!!!
