  1. Lazerlove,I realize I'm a bit late responding to this, but I am also pescatarian and have completed two rounds of whole30. Around week two my first time I was week, light headed, had splitting head aches, and very lethargic/unfocused. I drastically increased my consumption of potatoes and spinach (similar leafy greens high in iron) as my carnivorous family suggested. It made all the difference. I basically incorporated potatoes of some form into every meal, and my lunches consisted of many varieties of spinach salads. Not only did I feel more like myself but my workout performances began to noticeably increase in speed and stamina. Hope this helps!

    Do compliant meat substitutes exist?

    Having done Whole30 twice as a pescatarian (leaving me eggs and fish), I'm proof that it is 100% doable! Yes you will get tired of the same old sea food, so I had to take extra measure to mix it up, which was easy to do with the whole30 cookbooks. I also learned through trial and error, especially when working out, that I required more potatoes and spinach than my fellow carnivores also doing whole30. If you are trying to do it without eating seafood I would suggest substituting a lot of eggs, potatoes and spinach, or similar leafy greens. It won't be exactly whole30 as you won't have any lean protein, but it'll get you through. Good luck!
