  1. Meal 1

    So I'm having trouble with the eating 1 hr after waking. I work at 6:30 and typically wake at 5:30 to leave he house by 6. I'm a Pilates instructor so I am not able to sit and eat a meal when I get to work. What are good options for me to have. I have typically been waiting until I get done with my shift to eat which is anywhere between 10 & 12. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Intermittent Fasting?

    Got it! Thank you!
  3. Intermittent Fasting?

    I walk about 20k steps on avg per day and also do Pilates so I do not over exercise and never have been one to, due to my thyroid/adrenals/CEBV it has always been hard for me to find energy to exercise in excessive amounts.
  4. Intermittent Fasting?

    I plan on keeping it relatively low carb but will obviously be eating less fat than I currently am so I don't really see why I would see weight gain. I have been trying to increase my carbs through carb ups a few time a week but was doing it with crappy food(french fries, candy, cheese and ice cream) but it lasted a few weeks and I realized it was getting out of control and I have been paleo for nearly 4 years. Thats why I chose to do a whole30 to find a happy balance between what I was doing and a more well rounded diet and introduce carbs in a healthy way to support my thyroid and PCOS. I do see a Functional medicine Dr. I have always had good sleep, that has never been an issue.
  5. Intermittent Fasting?

    I have been IF daily since June 2016 as well as doing keto to help release weight gained after being on hormone replacement. I have lost maybe 10 lbs in that 9 months. I just started experimenting with carb ups and then decided maybe whole30 would be a better balance for me. My keto diet was relatively calorie restricted 1200-1600 calories a day and very clean, no dairy. I have been eating dairy occasionally over the past month but that's all. Only using stevia as sweetener. I just don't want to gain back what I've already lost.
  6. Intermittent Fasting?

    I am currently doing Keto with IF and have been for about 9 months but not seeing the results I was looking for. Is it safe to transition to Whole30 after doing IF for that long and also Keto or am I going to pack on pounds? Or would it be better to continue doing IF since I already have been for so long? I don't plan on adding in a ton of starchy carbs but plan on upping my carbs slightly more than I am currently doing. I have Hashimotos, PCOS and Estrogen dominance for reference. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
  7. Am I eating too much?

    Thanks! I'm really bad at correct portions, I tend to either eat too much or too little, so I'm glad to see I'm on the right track. Yes for the most part I got a little hungry around 11 when I ate Breakfast around 8 but wasn't starving and made it until 12:30. I am drinking plenty of water, I have a 22oz water bottle I fill up 4-5 times a day maybe more. (I'm thirsty haha)
  8. Am I eating too much?

    Hey guys! I just started my Whole30 Monday. I have been Paleo for almost 3 years though. I was just wondering if I am eating too much or just right or too little. A little back ground... I am a 5' 3" female I weigh about 130 lbs and just recently in the last year gotten to that weight due to Hashimoto's and hormonal imbalance. I am look to get back to my weight I was at last June which was 110. I would like to lose at least 10lbs if not the whole 20lbs I gained. This is what I ate today. I do Pilates 3 days a week. Breakfast: 3 large eggs scrambled in 2tsp coconut oil and 1 1/2 cups or white sweet potato crisped in the pan. Lunch: 2 Aidell's chicken apple sausages, 2 cups mixed greens, 10 cherry tomatoes, 1/2 and avocado & dressing made with one tbsp EVOO, juice of 1 lemon and 1 1/2 tbsp of compliant dijon mustard. 1 strawberry and 10 blueberries Dinner I will be having: 1-2 palm sized portions of chile verde crockpot pork made with chile verde salsa from Trader Joe's, 1 1/2 cups of salad with romaine, cucumber, tomatoes & avocado with olive oil and balsamic as dressing & green beans and mushrooms cooked in coconut oil and garlic. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated so I can get the most out of this journey! Thanks so much in advance!
