    Day 17 - No Tiger Blood - Expectations too high?

    HELP! I should be in the Tiger Blood stage. I have been 100% Whole30 compliant and still I feel as though my energy is not as "awesome" as everyone describes. Should I wait a couple of days? What could be wrong? As far as eating I ensure that I have atleast 50-100 grams of carbs a day. I only eat the "healthy" fats and I get plenty of protein. I will say I just started T25 right before my Tiger Blood stage. Could that be it? I just would hate to go through this thing and not get that awesome feeling that everyone is bragging about

    Digestive Issues (Day 15)

    Ok. So i have always had digestive issues (diarrhea) for as long as I can remember. I am on day 15 of this program (woot woot ... halfway!) so I know that a lot of people say that they don't get full effects until closer to the end. BUT, this is bad. I'll get REALLY bad gas pain (like crippling) and usually instant "digestive issues" after that. A couple days ago I realized I was eating mostly protein and very little carbs. So I've made sure to include carbs now. But, I still have the same issues as before. For instance, this morning I had a casserole that consisted of eggs, egg whites, sweet potato, spinach, ground beef (bought from US Wellness), onions and mushrooms and I ate less than half an apple, I also drank some Yerba mate tea (nothing added). I drank plenty of water and still as soon as I got to my desk at 8 I was up and in the bathroom! It'd be one thing if something totally different was happening while on the Whole30, but this is exactly how I felt when I was eating non-paleo. Any help, advice or explanation would be greatly appreciated. P.S. I haven't exercised since beginning this program but this morning I started T25. This may or may not be the cause of the issue today. But, it certainly was not prior to today.
