    I’ll never go back

    I’m curious how the rest of whole30 and reintroduction went for you?

    Meal planning on the go

    So for my job (only 3 days a week) I am driving/seeing patients at their homes. I need ideas for how to pack a lunch I won’t have to reheat, one that fits the meal plan and will sustain me. I’m thinking homemade guacamole, fruits/veggies of course, any suggestions on protein? I don’t enjoy seafood and I can’t imagine I’d enjoy eating cold chicken breast. Thank you!!

    Day 3 having troubles...

    Thank you so much for that information! Spaghetti squash counts as a starchy carb right? That’s what I’ve eaten for dinner the last two nights.
  6. Hi, I am on day 3 of whole30 and noticed a few things already. On the positive side- I already feel way less bloated and I am actually staying full between the three meals which has never happened before. For context I am 29, female, working out 4-5 times a week, a little overweight, and used to eat a pretty terrible diet. My first concern is that I do have a history of low blood sugar and I am feeling dizziness/tiredness again. My second (biggest) concern is that I am waking up at 2-3 am wide awake and hungry. The first night I was able to go back to sleep but last night I had to eat some strawberries, the hunger pangs were awful. I am thinking I am maybe not getting enough protein. Last night for dinner (and the night before) I had a big bowl of spaghetti squash with homemade tomato sauce. I ate a bowl of cauliflower/broccoli with it last night. It’s so filling that I realized I am not adding/craving protein with dinner. Last night With dinner i also realized the only protein I ate all day was 1 chicken breast, 3 chicken sausage links and 2 eggs. So at that point is when I made a big bowl of veggies and ate a handful of pecans. I am eating plenty of vegetables and I believe my fat is enough- yesterday was 1/2 avacado, and olive oil cooked with each meal. I am hoping my troubles are coming from not getting enough protein- does that sound right? I just don’t like a whole lot of meats and I get sick of chicken QUICK. Any suggestions??
