    Day 8 new member - Stuck!

    Hi all! Yay, I finally figured out that I needed to create an account in here! I’m glad I’ve found you guys! I’m on day 8 and I still feel like I’m on the 3rd day. I’ve got the brain fog, headache, and hanger. There are 2 main things contributing to this, I believe. First, I’m not eating enough protein or enough in general. Second, which also leads back to 1, is I have major menu and cooking fatigue. I’m picky so my protein choices are limited. I think I’ve had eggs 7 out of 8 days and I’m sooo sick of them, it’s hard to get the whole meal down. Same with chicken. And the leftovers get all dry and hard to swallow, too. Making meals that aren’t delicious makes me lose my motivation to cook. I need sweet potatoes to have something bulky, but I can barely eat them now too. I am definitely feeling the positives though too. I’m less moody and irritable. Despite the brain fog at times, I’m also able to think more clearly. I know this is good for me, and I’m not going to give up. I’d love help with ideas for more on the go stuff (no jerky or compliant cold cut please!) I’m even sick of my beautiful veggie and garlic aioli bento box! I do home visits so I don’t have access to a microwave midday. Thanks for reading and for any tips or words of encouragement you can give! Cathy
