  1. Last night I decided to try ghee again on some vegetables. Today I am once again not feeling well. Not as bad as last time but general nausea and a lot of brain fogginess sort of like if I were getting a bad head cold or sinus infection. If I am sensitive to ghee, does that mean that I'm likely extremely sensitive to dairy in general? This is making me scared about the reintroduction.
  2. Thank you Shannon so much for your quick and reassuring response. I ended up taking something for my headache after trying CBD oil & essential oils because I just wasn't able to get up and do the things I needed to today. That helped a lot and though my gut is still unhappy I'm now working on a baked potato with olive oil. I think I'll try ghee again in a few days to see if that's the issue.
  3. I'm on Day 4, after having to do a restart on Day 5 due to finding out that something I'd had for a snack had sugar in it (learned my lesson to not blindly follow random blogger advice). So basically Day 9 in terms of eliminating most foods, minus that small slip. Last night I started to get a headache and when I woke up I had a full blown migraine. This actually isn't that unusual for me. Weirder though is that I was really sick to my stomach. My migraines normally come with a little nausea but I'm right on the verge of throwing up and am only able to keep from doing so by using pressure points, breathing exercises, and generally staying extremely still. I'm also having diarrhea. The only thing different about anything I ate yesterday is that I tried ghee for the first time with my dinner, probably half a tablespoon. I've forced down a banana and some cashews just to try to put something in my body. Obviously all I really want are saltines. Sorry for the TMI!
  4. That is super helpful advice Jihanna! Thank you so much!
  5. Thanks so much for the responses! I will try to move up my breakfast time but I don't know how I can eat more for breakfast. Aside from the first day I listed which is because I was running out the door, the other day my breakfasts stuff me full and is a full plate of food. I do cook all my foods in olive oil. Not sure if that counts as the fats? I can work in ghee and avocado on the breakfasts probably. Are there other good starchy vegetables besides potatoes and sweet potatoes? I'm thinking about some of the dinners (spiralized veggies & meat sauce or chicken cauliflower fried rice and veggies) and how I would work in a starchy vegetable without it just being sort of random on the side.
  6. Hello! I'm on day 6 of my whole30. So far everything is going well, not too many cravings or anything, though I also don't feel different at all in any way. The only thing different is that I can't sleep! I've had a lot of trouble with sleeping in the past, but had gotten it under control in the past year with CBD oil. Since starting whole30 I wake up several times throughout the night, go to the bathroom, have trouble falling back asleep, and have weird dreams. I'm still taking the CBD oil, it just doesn't seem to be impacting me anymore? Do I just need to wait this out or am I doing something wrong with my meals? Here are a few days examples: Breakfast Lunch Snack Dinner 2 Hard boiled eggs Turkey Burger & Butternut Squash Curlies Zucchini Noodles & Meat Sauce 2 Fried Eggs & Potatoes Zucchini Noodles & Meat Sauce 2 clementines Chicken sausage, brussel sprouts, and potato 2 Fried Eggs, Sweet Potatoes, Brussel Sprouts, Spinach Hash Chicken sausage, brussel sprouts, and potato 2 clementines Carrot spirals & Meat Sauce Notes about the meals: I also start the day with 2 cups of coffee with a little nutpod creamer in it. I don't eat within an hour of getting up, I like to just sit with my coffee for 1-2 hours before beginning to cook. I know I'm not supposed to have fruit as a pre-workout snack, but it's been the most convenient thing as I've been on the go. I'm looking for new, non-fruit options that I can eat in the car, that also aren't RX bars because I don't want to start depending on those. The thing I used to eat a lot of as a pre-workout snack in the car was pistachios, but I don't think that nuts alone as a pre-workout snack is recommended either? I don't eat that close to bedtime. I usually eat dinner around 7pm and go to bed at 10pm. Not sleeping is super not fun, as I'm sure many of you can imagine. We also have two foster puppies right now who are keeping us on our toes the whole day and waking us up earlier than normal so I need to get the sleep in when I can.
