    Is day 5 crumminess to be expected?

    Thanks for the helpful replies! I just got home from my WOD and, while it was far from one of my best, I feel 100% better after getting my blood moving. That said, I have zero appetite and all I want to do is collapse on the couch with some rooibos and 'Scandal'. I seriously can't bring myself to eat anything. Is it okay to skip a meal every now and then?
  2. I felt great for the first four days but now I feel capital-l Lousy. Super nauseous, bloated, headachey, and SO THIRSTY. I felt like I was in a fog all day today and had to leave work a little early. I've been dutifully logging my food and I think I'm okay in that department. I'm dreading heading to CrossFit tonight. So what's going on? How do I get out of this funk?

    Help me plan snacks/mini meals for work

    Thanks for the helpful responses! I appreciate those who suggest not snacking at all, but I typically don't eat dinner until 10 or 11. I'm either working until then, or I'm squeezing into the 8pm WOD at my Crossfit box. If I have to wait that long to eat I think I'll go insane. Thanks again!
  4. I'm kicking off my first Whole30 November 1st, and I know that work will be a minefield. I'm a creative at an advertising agency and typically work long, erratic hours. We have loads of cheese, bread and fruit in the kitchen at all times, but obviously that's out of bounds. I'm already in the habit of bringing lunch to work - typically leftovers from dinner. What I'm after are well-balanced, make ahead snacks/mini meals to keep on hand for when hanger strikes. As an aside I can see avoiding snacking being a major, major issue because I am hungry all. The. Goddamn. Time. Seriously, my fiance jokes that I have a bottomless stomach. This wasn't such an issue when I was younger and my weight hovered around 50-52kg at all times, but now I'm 30 and my weight has crept up to 61. Still a 'technically' healthy BMI, but a totally unacceptable weight gain regardless. I'm actually super anxious about dealing with my endless hunger during the Whole30.
