I am new to Whole30, and I am on day 3. I am a huge planner, so before I started I read the book, planned my meals for the first two weeks, grocery shopped, cleaned out my pantry, etc. I knew this journey was going to be difficult to me because I love sugar and have a sweet tooth. I am already dairy free, and dont consume a lot of gluten either.
I know it’s early in the game..but I feel awful. Today I had such an intense migraine that it made me nauseous and unable to eat lunch. I tried forcing it down, but just couldn’t do it (I also don’t believe in forcing food when you don’t have an appetite). I don’t like skipping meals, but it was just not a good day. On top of that, I never feel satisfied..or it could be that I’m so used to having a snack, mainly a sugary one, at a specific time..so maybe my body thinks I’m hunrgy when I’m really not.
The past three days have been hard, and I wanted to give up after 3pm on my first day. Any advice out there for newbies?
Sweet Potato hash browns (I’m not using these as an impersonation food)
2 large eggs
Boneless bites (from the Whole30 cookbook)
Broccoli with compliant ranch
Sweet potato fries (once again,not using this as an impersonation food)
Healthy broccoli and steak salad
Warm Chipotle Lime Mayo Sweet Potato Salad
I workout and I am usually still at work for dinner, so I need snacks
Handful of almonds
Sweet potato cubes
My sugar cravings have been so bad! I almost can’t concentrate at work and just want to give up and have a bag of cookies from the vending machine. Does this get better?
