  1. Hi Everyone! I am currently on day 14 of my first Whole30. I started this to eat healthier foods and learn to control my cravings. Before, I would consistently overeat cookies and other sugary treats while undereating healthy foods. For example, I wouldn't eat all day only to eat a small dinner and then lots of cookies at night. Now that I have started whole30, I haven't had cravings for food groups that are not allowed. However, I have had intense bloating and constipation and I have felt very tired and overly full. Additionally, I cannot seem to stop eating. No matter what food it is, I feel out of control. For example, today I ate about 15 homemade meatballs, spaghetti squash with marinara, a large orange, 2 sliced apples with large spoonfuls of almond butter, seven dates dipped in almond butter, and a few spoonfuls of almond butter. It is only four PM. For some reason, none of the foods seem to satisfy me even though I am full to the point of discomfort. I still have the desire to eat more. I am not sure what I should do to fix this. I didn't allow myself to eat any fruit or almond butter for days eight and nine. I was less prone to overeating but I was exhausted and my brain felt foggy. After I reintroduced fruit, I went right back to overeating it and everything else. Additionally, I have felt very weak during my workouts. I typically run 3+ miles every day. For the past two weeks, I have been really struggling when exercising. My mile pace has slowed by about a minute and I feel worse than I did at a faster pace. Does anyone have advice? I am trying to make the most of these thirty days and I am sick of feeling overly full, tired, and unsatisfied. I am confused about why my body feels worse even though I am fueling myself with healthy foods. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to read this and offer advice! I really appreciate this!!!
