  1. Day 27. I’m still not well, in fact today k have taken the day off work and stayed in bed all morning. Then got up and have had a very slow afternoon. I have not felt well now for weeks. I am feeling quite down about it as I have had a really successful w30, no alcohol for nearly 8 weeks and yet I don’t feel any better. No tiger blood at all (yet) and I feel exhausted and wiped out. I know it’s not really related to my w30 but I had hoped I would feel better and I feel the same if not worse. i intend to just carry on with the plan but as it is my husbands birthday we are going out for a mea
  2. Some people do cut out potatoes and other nightshades (eg tomato, pepper, aubergine) but that feels too restrictive for me, and i love tomatoes breakfasts- I like a chia pots too. I make kind with chia, coconut canned milk, frozen fruit, raisins. I make 2 or 3 days worth in advance in boxes in the fridge. I also make ratatouille, portion into boxes, then in the morning make a little dip in the mixture and crack an egg in, then microwave the whole thing until the sauce is hot and the egg is cooked.
  3. That’s annoying that there was sugar in your meal! It is so hard to eat food out when on this plan! we have talked before about the mystery virus- I still have times where I am feeling really wrung out and exhausted, even after 3.5 weeks! And I have not drunk alcohol since 13th august. I don’t feel ready to stop yet so I think I will carry on after the 30 days are done. I had hoped to feel really healthy and energetic but this round I just haven’t.
  4. That recipe sounds delicious! Thank you. I am not what I will reintroduce first. Normally it’s wine, but I am really enjoying being alcohol free. It’s my husbands birthday next Friday so I feel there is pressure on me to drink, but I don’t really want to. it sounds weird but I miss my scales and I am finding it hard not tracking my food, so actually that might be what I reintroduce. I’m not missing any actual foods so I will probably keep going a bit, but I am worried I may have actually gained weight as I have eaten so well! So maybe I will continue this, but track my calories and see
  5. Day 24. I have had a horrible horrible week. My son has been very ill with a vomiting bug and ended up in hospital being rehydrated. Plus alongside that, my husband learned his company is making redundancies and we’ve had 2 stressful days waiting for more info. I have had a tough time at work and I am really close to leaving my job as it is so stressful. however: my food while it has not been perfect (not anywhere near enough veg, and today I didn’t eat at all til 6pm) and generally badly planned, badly executed… I remained 100% compliant. No turning to food to make me feel better
  6. Day 21. Woke up feeling a bit better today. Went for a run, and made good time, there were some points where I was flying along (and others where I was huffing and puffing!) I think my tigerblood is fighting against my virus. Now though this afternoon I feel quite tired and not well again, and am sneezing again. we have spent the extra bank holiday doing jobs Around the house, watching the queen’s funeral, and prepping for the week ahead. I’m going to have a hot bath now and warm myself up a bit. I’ve cooked a chicken for the week for lunches and convenient protein, made mayo, and ma
  7. Day 20- and I still feel exhausted and viral! Thought I was over the worst of it yesterday however I have been worse today, really tired and fuzzy head and really really grouchy and irritable. I know it’s not w30 related but it’s really sapping my motivation as the whole point of doing this is to feel better not worse! So I have had firm words with myself today because if I break my w30 I’ll feel even more crappy tomorrow. I made comfort food- baked ham, roast sweet potato in the fat saved from my pork belly yesterday, lots of veg, and I stewed some apple which I ate after my dinner.
  8. Hi Barbara, yes I’m in the Uk. Whole 30 isn’t really known here. I stumbled upon it during lockdown 2020, did around 60 days then and I just felt amazing. I ended up doing over 100 days sugar free, no dairy for 18 months, very rarely ate bread etc. In among that time I would do 30 days stints of proper w30, sometimes 15 days etc just for a boost and lived a sort of ‘drunken caveman’ existence; paleo food but wine at the weekends haha then I suppose I grew tired of it. Covid really affected us in the Uk, we all had it in our family and I’m sure I had long covid symptoms too. But more i
  9. Day 19. I went out last night, had fun even though I didn’t drink (who even knew that was possible???) and got home late. I was so tired yesterday. I am really unhappy in my job which doesn’t help. I enjoy my work but I am put upon and unsupported. Anyway… throat is tight and sore today. Whatever this virus is is hanging around and I wish I’d either feel ill enough to take to my bed, or well enough to be well. Got my results back yesterday, blood completely normal. Heart trace normal, although the dr asked if I exercised because my heart rate is low. She said it’s a sign of my athleticis
  10. Hi Barbara <waves> I sometimes think I am the only person in the world on this forum! Thanks for chatting! I only gave up coffee for a few days because I was having some weird panic attack/anxiety feelings. I would miss it too much to give it up completely. I have started drinking hot water at work though rather than coffee all the time, it is somehow more of a ‘break’ than cold water.
  11. Is he eating enough generally? I find after about 6/7/8 days, my appetite shrinks and then I get seriously hungry… usually around day 8! My preferred fat source on HangryDay is pork belly, super crispy, lots of salt…
  12. Day 17. I won’t lie- I feel exhausted today. Still unwell, work was ridiculously busy, and I have felt like I’m chasing my tail all week. I haven’t planned my meals well (or rather, I did, but then I didn’t stick to my plans very well) and I bought things which I have then ended up snacking on such as nuts and dried fruit. We run out of fresh fruit by Wednesday because the children just eat so much of it which I know is good, but it means I run out! I have had the results back from my bloods and ECG and have to make an appointment so I think that means there is potentially something
  13. Day 16 today, halfway there! I think I would be feeling good today except for that I have a horrible sore throat and headache. Hopefully that will shift soon and the tiger blood will emerge! Had some blood tests and an ECG yesterday morning as over the summer I’ve developed quite a few symptoms of hypothyroidism. Hopefully this month will help me to feel a bit more energetic. today my food was good (made breakfast boxes and lunch boxes in advance) and dinner is a chilli and baked potato with enough left for leftovers. I won’t lie, tigerblood seems a fair way off. My throat feel
  14. Day 14. Weekend was good although I’d say some of my food choices were less so, although all within my whole30. A few more snacks than I’d been having and I didn’t always follow the template so strictly. my kids are unwell with coughs and colds and I have a sore throat this morning as well. still, that’s my 5th weekend in a row with no alcohol, and it’s day 14, nearly halfway there! I prepped my breakfast boxes and lunches for 3 days. Roasted a chicken. It definitely helped me last week to have breakfast and lunch all sorted and not have to think about them. I’m excited for this week
  15. Day 11. Another tough day. End of the first week back at school. I feel tired, didn’t sleep well last night and got home, went to the supermarket, had dinner… now feeling quite tired and just ‘meh’. I ate a lot but nothing really excited me, lamb steak and veg for dinner, some nuts, some fruit. Tomorrow, I am going for a run with my friend at 8am and hoping to do 12+ kms. I haven’t been doing long distances all summer so I’m really trying to pick the miles up again. Then we have a family party and then a social party in the evening. So a very busy day. food: eggs, avocado and bacon after
