    The best veggies raw of course;) Maybe I'll grab some carrots then haha, thanks so much for your input!

    And also, does it really matter whether I eat more veggies raw or cooked?

    The meal planning template link above? Also another thing I have noticed - Not sure if it's brain fog? But I have held a lot of pressure in the front of my head, top of my nose bridge...like sinus area...I am not sick, nor does my head actually hurt....that could be cause from Whole30 too you think?

    What template are we talking about here?

    Not bc of society for sure! I feel hungry a lot actually, so I eat. I have seconds at dinner, or eat snacks - regular & dried fruit, nuts, deviled eggs.

    Right, I should do that actually. I have a 20 oz yeti at work so I am trying to drink at least 3 before I leave work for the day, and then continue drinking water through the night, which likely brings me to roughly 80 oz per day. Thanks for the feedback!

    Thank you for the feedback! Next grocery shopping trip, I will definitely be buying more veggies, and cutting back on my fruits and nuts. It's weird bc I feel like I am eating too much food sometimes, but you're saying I need to eat more. Well, hopefully adding in more veggies will help!
  8. Since Day 6, I have had constipation and/or constipated BM's. Constipation was something I struggled with before starting this 2nd round. I completed my 1st round about 2 years ago and have made many attempts at a 2nd round since. I am on Day 15 now, furthest I have gotten! But this round, I am having far more issues than the first. I'm sure due to the fact that before starting the first round, I had already been eating pretty good and exercising regularly. The past couple years have been rough, I have tried to eat well, and exercise but was not doing it enough. Anyways, trying to work towards that again, change this new year up! So since Day 6, I have been having issues. And since Day 14, I haven't been sleeping well. So that and constipation, slight stomach pain and cramping at times. According to my BC, I am getting my period in 3 days. So maybe that could have something to do with it? But since Day 6?!?! I remember during the first round, I got my period the last week of the round, and it was kind of awful. Periods and Whole40 don't mix well! So well no I feel worried and discouraged bc what is next week going to be like?! Worse than the last 9 days?! I have read in other posts that veggies might help with the constipation? I thought that a lot of veggies contribute to constipation too? I probably haven't been eating enough veggies though...besides lettuces for salads. I feel like I might be eating too much fruit? I've been drinking smoothies a lot with dinners. And having mandarins at night for a snack. I know, you're not supposed to "snack", but I did during the first round too, which fruits and homemade nut bars, and I never had issues! And lost weight too. I am bad about drinking enough water but have been rrrrreeally trying to be better about that now. I know I need to drink half by body weight in ounces, which is 77 ounces of water a day. I think I drank that much yesterday, and am shooting for that today. Hoping it helps once I get a few days of the appropriate amount of water in me. Also I don't eat THAT many nuts really. I have ate a handful a few times in the last 9 days though, should I stop that maybe? One other thing, my chin is breaking out. That could be from the fact that I am about to get my period though... I think I have covered all my bases here besides what I've been eating which I will post below now. Breakfast: 2 eggs, potatoes, avocado, salsa - I eat this pretty much every single day. Lunch: Leftovers (Soup-whole30 chili, pot roast, spaghetti squash pasta, porkchops/potatoes/veggies, etc., and other similar meals), or salad with chicken breast (salads usually just lettuce, cucumbers sometimes though lately haven't been buying them bc they taste gross rn, sometimes I throw cabbage in there too) and compliant dressing of course, or I will do lettuce wraps, or I buy frozen patties from Trader Joe's (turkey burger, chicken burger, beef burger etc.) and eat those with some cauliflower rice, or by themselves with Whole30 ranch. Dinner: Meals I listed above as leftovers (My roommates are doing this with me so we've been taking turns cooking: Pot roast, white chicken chili, cabbage rolls, spaghetti squash casserole, steak/chicken/pork/fish and cooked veggies, stuffed acorn squash. Thanks in advance for any great feedback I receive!!!
