    Whole30 -- March 1

    Day 9: Work schedule was from 8 am - 1 pm) Meal 1: 8:00 am 1/2 beef burger patty (Palm serving) 1/2 baked Salmon (Palm serving) 1/2 cup sauteed vegetables Meal 2: 10:15 am (15 minute break) Large Banana Meal 3: 2:15 pm 1 whole avocado 1/2 palm serving of Beef burger patty 1/8 palm serving of Baked Salmon Meal 4: 9:30 pm Bowl of Beef Heart Stew Meditation: 0 minutes Exercise: 1 hour 1/2 walk Water: 30 oz. We are almost at the end of week 2 for the Whole30 and in looking back at my progress, what I find challenging for me is scheduling meals that coincides with work schedule. My work hours fluctuate--sometimes early morning shifts, or mid-day shifts and sometimes evening shifts. I am also having to eat about the same dish for a few days to manage time. There are gaps with my fat and vegetable intakes, however, there are no problem with protein servings. When I made the Beef Heart Stew, I purposely put extra servings of carrots to meet vegetable servings and sometimes, if schedule permits, I would cook sauteed vegetables aside from a dish that already have vegetables to add to or make up for shortage of vegetable serving from another meal/dish. For week 3 and 4 I will do my best to balance my meals out and have adequate servings of protein+vegetables+fat+seasonings.

    Hi LadyShanny, I was scheduled to work from 1:30 - 4:30 and from 1:30 - 2:30 I was doing the courier walk. I should have had a meal at 2:30 since we can eat at work. I was starving when I arrived home. I think I did okay for Day 5. However, there was a huge gap again on Day 6 between Meal 1 and Meal 2. I have no excuse I just wasn't hungry. I don't know if Beef Heart just have a huge satiating factor.

    These are great goals Loni. The moderators for the Whole30 are also very supportive. Glad to know we are all in the journey together. Blessings, Sheila

    Hi LadyShanny, I added more fat for my breakfast and Yes, I remembered about the butter and that being dairy. I cooked my eggs on olive oil instead. My first meal kept me satiated for longer period of time. however, I was starving by 4:30 pm. I was getting off work at 4:30 pm. Since I am trying to figure out fat servings, I might try for a snack one hard-boiled egg and a handful of cashew nuts to tie me over until meal 2. I may also try a mini-meal rather than a snack.

    Day 4 Progress: Meal 1: 8:00 am 3 Fried Eggs 2 Cups Sauteed mushrooms in olive oil and balsamic vinegar 1 whole avocado Meal 2: 5:30 pm 4 Bacon 3 Fried Eggs 1 Cup Sauteed carrots Meal 3: None. I was not hungry after meal 2. Meal 1 kept me full for a long time. I was hungry by 4 pm. Meditation: 0 minutes Exercise: 1 hour 30 minutes Water: 45 oz. I added a lot more fat for meal 1, and kept me full for a longer period of time. I had to work from 1:30 - 4:30 pm and therefore, was not able to have meal 2 until 5:30 and meal 2 also had a lot of fat and kept me satiated over night. Attached was my breakfast. For Day 5, I will ensure to have hard boiled eggs available to tie me over on work days. It is sometimes difficult to manage cooking and schedule, however, it's doable.

    Hello TheDuchess (I like the name).... I agree with Glenn if you're hungry eat another mini-meal or add a meal 4?

    Are there any Almond Milk or Coconut Milk brands that doesn't have Carrageenan? I was really surprised when I saw these and sometimes, "natural flavors" in addition to Carrageenan are showing up on the Coconut Milk and Almond Milk ingredients list at grocery stores and health food stores. After searching I just gave up. I am having a hard time as it is drinking coffee black. I am drinking more water at this time.

    Hi LadyShanny, Thank you for checking up on me again. I just saw your message and I was wondering the same... The other source of fat I use are avocado and I incorporate fats when I cook my meal in either lard or olive oil, occasionally grass-fed butter?? I had a ton of cashews Sunday (which was probably a bad idea..). I decided to add a banana to my Meal 3 this evening cause I am curious to know if it will make the dizziness better. For tomorrow, I plan to eat three to four eggs with sauteed mushrooms and 1/2 of avocado and will hold the banana. I want to see if there's any changes. The fat consumption I am a little confused cause I don't want to eat too much fat so I thought maybe when I cook my meals with lard and olive oil that would serve my fat serving per meal? I am not sure.... Thank you for your help.

    Day 3 Progress: Meal 1: 9:00 am. Grown-up Stir Fry (Paleoonabudget.com: Beef recipe) 1 cup Sauteed vegetables Meal 2: 3:00 pm Leftover Grown-up Stir Fry (Paleo on a Budget Recipe) 1 1/2 cup Sauteed Vegetables 1/2 avocado Meal 3: 8:00 pm (So starving and I feel slightly dizzy today and my body is calling for proteins) Grown-up Stir Fry Large Banana Meditation: 0 minutes Exercise: 1 hour and 40 minutes trail walk Water: 45 oz. There's still something missing with my meals cause I still get slightly dizzy. I ate enough amount for breakfast, which I would like to also think have adequate fat. I ate more during lunch (after my first 1 hour walk), then, did another 30 - 45 minutes walk and by the time I got home I was really starving.

    Hi LadyShanny, Thank you so much for your feedback. I was trying to figure out what I did wrong with my meal planning. I appreciate you checking up on me. Hard boiled eggs and baked sweet potatoes are a great grab on the run snacks.
