Cliffer replied to Cliffer's topic in Troubleshooting your Whole30Thank you so much- somehow, I've made it this far without seeing the meal template. I knew I shouldn't be snacking as much- but also haven't been eating large enough meals, or adding enough fat. This is helpful. I know I have a sugar addiction, I'm proud that I've made it this far, but have really been leaning on the rx and lara bars. I completely lost my mind at the buy 2 get 1 free bar sale Whole Foods had- bought WAY more than I care to admit- in a panic on Jan 1! All to say, lessons learned. I'll clean it up for this next week, focus on reintroducing in a healthy way, and may continue on a less strict version- so I at least don't have to worry about oil and seasonings when making healthy choices dining out. Thanks so much for the feedback!
Cliffer posted a topic in Troubleshooting your Whole30This is my first time doing Whole 30. I have the meals down great, cooking every day for dinner, leftovers for lunch; usually fruit or eggs and veggies and sometimes meat for breakfast. It's the in between meals that gets me, I think. I bought some RX bars, some Lara bars, some dried apples- most days it's one bar after lunch, and not every day for the dried fruit. I've been eating fresh fruit maybe twice a day. This has gotten me through the feelings of being deprived and the need for some form of sugar initially. But I feel like as I'm getting closer to the end, I'm now having more mental cravings (not so much that I need the taste- but just looking at the things around thinking- "no none will know if I cheat and eat this..."- I haven't cheated though!), and I'm feeling tired and bloated. I'm feeling like I may be very disappointed in 8 days when I do step on the scale. I'm discouraged today. Anyone else struggling as we get closer to the end?
