    My first round I felt like fat adaptation happened around week 3, so I expect it will take at least that long this time around. I'm sure I'd be feeling even better if I was able to workout at the intensity I would like (and was used to, before my ~6 week break at the end of the year!), but I have a health issue right now that's forcing me to take it a bit easier. After my first Whole30 I felt great while I kept eating mainly to the template, but even with exceptions/splurges I continued to lose fat and was really pleased with how lean/defined I was. I'm hopeful that I've learned my lessons (no dairy, at least on a regular basis!) to stay in that place this time!

    I am right there with you.  I feel like it took a good 2, or more likely 3 weeks for my body to become fat adapted on my first Whole30.  I am right on day 20 now, so I hope it's the same or better now (it's almost 5 years later now, so I'm sure my body doesn't fire up like it used to).   But I felt the same as you, after it was finished, I stuck to the general template for quite a while and I got even leaner and my energy was excellent.  I started taking it for granted and cheated or splurged a lot more often as the years went by until this past year when i was completely off of the wagon.  I'm hoping I can get back on track and lean back out...and then not fall into the lackadaisical trap again.  

  2. How have you been feeling since you started?   Better, worse, same? 

    I know what you mean about missing how you felt when you were on the post Whole30 meal regimen.  I mentioned it on my log, but aside from the fact that I need to drop some weight that has quickly latched onto me, I really want to get back to feeling as great as I did on a daily basis when I was eating a lot cleaner and not drinking as much.  I'm on day 18 now, so hopefully I will be there soon.  Good luck.
