hojo got a reaction from Rachael2288 in Day 15 - Only feeling more tired!
I am interested in this as well....Day 16 for me and I'm tired as well and not sleeping great (am normally a great sleeper). What I am curious about is the timing of sweet potato/squash....I usually have this with my evening meal....would it help to have this with breakfast instead for more sustained energy?
I am experiencing other benefits so it is certainly worth doing Whole30, but not having energy is certainly no fun. We gotta keep on going, maybe we just have more issues going on inside that need healing and it just takes longer....like they say, its not like you can expect perfection after only 2 weeks.......we hear so many good stories about this and all of our bodies are different and need different lengths of healing.

This was in jest, from a co-worker with whom I'm friends, but: "you should go crazy this weekend and eat a whole peanut!"
Then, a discussion about how peanuts are not NUTS ensued. (I am not going to eat a peanut this weekend, or an weekend in the foreseeable future!)

"salad is not a food!"
wha-what? I still wonder what they think salad is.
One of my favorites was a vegetarian co-worker who was drinking a Diet coke and eating Fritos and a hostess cupcake told me that the grassfed steak on my salad would give me colon cancer. I looked at her lunch and then at mine and said "that is a risk I am willing to take."

Yep, no crossfit for me either... and really no plans for it in the future. Hang in there it gets better... I think it's natural to question the gut issues when you didn't feel like you had them when you ate grains and dairy... I went through that whole thing as well...although I think I just really wanted to eat oatmeal and greek yogurt I was just whining and really had an emotional attachment to those foods even though I knew they weren't good for my body!
