    DerekWrightTCH got a reaction from Amy_Michigan in Amy's Whole 30 Log Starting July 15, 2019   
    While only on day 3 for me, my wife and I have been meal planning for over a couple years. On busy days, we crockpot, and it is a game changer. It will also gives us plenty for left overs for a couple days too.

    DerekWrightTCH got a reaction from TFrank in Am I Eating Too Much?   
    i am only on day two of whole30, and in the past, I’ve been on pretty restrictive counting calorie diets. I lost 80 pounds but did so by only eating 1200-1500 calories and running for 30+ minutes every day as a 250 pound guys. I’m down to about 183ish after a little gain, but I needed it. It seems like I am eating a lot, but I am getting hungry every 4-5 hours. I do workout or run daily. I have thrown out the calorie counter, so I am not sure where I am. Am I eating too much? Since I’m only a couple days in, I want to make adjustments now rather than later. In all actuality, this is the most protein and food quality I have eaten in years. 
    Breakfast yesterday:
    4 sweet potato cuts (about half a potato), 2 eggs, 2 pieces of bacon, spinach sautéed with olive oil. 
    Lunch: 1/2lb of grilled chicken, asparagus, roasted beets, yellow tomatoes, 2 TBS of Tessemae ranch
    Dinned: 1/5 of a portion of pomegranate roast (3lb roast total), with carrot and cauliflower slaw and a whole sweet potato (I feel like I needed more veggies in this). The slaw had complaint mayo in it. 
    An hour lifting at the gym for the workout
    PreWO: celery and 1 TBS of sunflower butter 
    PostWO: Epic chicken bar and homemade plantain chips 
    breakfast: sweet potato, 1.5 TBS sunflower butter, 5 cherries, chia seeds, blueberries, and a banana
    lunch: LO roast with a half sweet potato, 1/2 cup of green beans and carrots. 
    Dinner is currently in the crockpot and is the chicken, lime, avocado soup and I’m going to add a spinach salad.
