    Digestion

    As of right now im going to start drinkng about 5oz of GTs kombucha before each meal and see how that goes. I also purchased these probiotics: http://www.amazon.com/Natures-Bounty-Advanced-Probiotic-Capsules/dp/B00A4QBLC6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1453397241&sr=8-2&keywords=natures+bounty+probiotic+10#customerReviews and just want to make sure they are compliant and if taking them would be a good decision for my digestive issues. I also came across these and was wondering which one you would recommend more. http://www.amazon.com/Probiotics-Ultimate-Care-100-Garden-Life/dp/B00AR0ENJ2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1453397612&sr=8-2&keywords=raw+probiotics+garden+of+life Doctor also told me I'm lacking vitamin D so thinking of taking that, Magnesium and a digestive enzyme. Hoping these supplements will help. But I want to know that this is ok. thanks!

    Digestion

    My last 4 days consisted of pretty much the same food: Breakfast: 2 or 3egg scramble with veggies(zucchini,tomato, kale, spinach, red pepper) procuitto. Ripe banana/or blueberries/raspberries or pineapple Lunch: fresh salad or sautéed vegetable( spinach, kale, carrot, cucumber, tomato, pepper, radish) with ranch if fresh or sautéed in avo oil. Usually eat with acorn squash and chicken(with skin on for extra fat) usually have a fruit listed above. Dinner: canned salmon/tuna with Mayo, paired with cucumbers and tomatoes and acorn squash. Usually a fruit as well Eliminating high FODMAP foods right now.

    Digestion

    I've been eating pretty well and getting enough veggies and fats because I'm always full and satisfied after each meal and get hungry around 4-5 hours. Water intake is usually 3 liters. I'm not taking any supplements.

    Digestion

    I'm on day 19 and still struggling with constipation. Last week I started eating a low FODMAP diet plus whole 30. It's been helping with stomach pain and bloating but not regularity. Last week I had a BM 3 days in a row which was awesome! But right now struggling with no BM for 4 days now :/ I really don't know what to do at this point. Wait for things to get better and trust the process or start taking digestive enzymes or probiotics. Considering buying these but I don't know if they'll help or what you guys think: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000GFSVPU/ref=ox_sc_saved_image_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A01750182121WPTMEL9O2

    Sugar Dragon

    Is there such thing as consuming too much fat? For example for lunch today I had: 2 egg yolks( leftovers from post workout since I only had egg whites) 1 egg plus egg whites fried in 1 tbs avo oil 1 cup veggies sautéed in 1tbs avo oil 1/2 cup tuna mixed with whole 30 mayo Also not used to eating this much at all! Honestly feeling like I ate way too much fat but I feel really good and satisfied. Right now it's hard for me to find fats because I follow the FODMAP diet as well so that eliminates avocados and nuts.... Thanks

    Eating every 2-3 hours vs. 4-5 hours

    Thanks for taking a look, I came across this in the whole 30 book but didnt really think it was that serious because i dont have IBS. But i will cut out all the high FODMAP foods for the next couple of weeks and see how i feel. It was already hard enough to cut out dairy, grains and all the other whole 30 stuff, but ill do it any way

    Eating every 2-3 hours vs. 4-5 hours

    @TomDenham I actually like eating the 4-5 hours apart but my body is still adjusting. Trusting the program. @gfchris Didn't think anything of the yolk, but will keep in mind. Water: at least 3 liters of water daily. 1/10/16 Breakfast: 2 egg scramble with sautéed veggies such as mushroom, onion, spinach, and prosciutto. Half cup mixed fruit Lunch: Palm sized roasted chicken with raw salad( spinach, carrot, tomato, cucumber, snap pea, radish) with whole30 ranch. 1 Mandarin Snack; Usually don't do a snack nut was eating out later so needed something. mini frittata, 1 date with almond butter Dinner: Steak salad at the 'keg' and brought my own dressing 1/11/16 Breakfast: 3 mini frittatas (ingredients same as yesterdays scramble) banana with almond butter Lunch: Palm sized roasted chicken with cup size steamed veggies(broccoli, cauliflower, carrot, kale, spinach) half cup of sweet potato and acorn squash Dinner: Tuna with mayo(whole30 recipe) with raw veggies(radish, cucumber, tomato, snap pea, carrot) with ranch. half cup of acorn squash and sweet potato. handful of berries,1 date with almond butter. 1/12/16 Breakfast: 2 poached eggs over sautéed veggies(about 1/2 cup when cooked down) (veggies; mushroom, onion, tomato, kale, spinach, prosciutto) 1 mandarin. -am always full(uncomfortable at times) after each meal but it lasts me 4-5 hours and I'm hungry when the 5th hour rolls around -stomach seems sensitive to Brussel sprouts and apples because it causes extra bloating, so don't eat these for now. thanks

    Eating every 2-3 hours vs. 4-5 hours

    @gfchris I typically do eat after I workout, I'll have a hard boiled egg. But sometimes I'm not hungry after a workout especially if it's lunch time in an hour. Not because I don't want to over eat, mainly because I'm still full for breakfast. The past couple of days I've just been feeling bloated from my 3 meals because I'm trying to fit all the food sizes in. I find it way easier on my stomach to eat smaller meals ranging between 4 hours.

    Eating every 2-3 hours vs. 4-5 hours

    I just feel like when I eat 3 big meals, I feel so stuffed and I don't not like that feeling because It feels like I overate, which I know I didn't, because at times I know I didn't have enough of each macro, esp veggies. I'm on day 11, so hopefully my body's still adjusting.

    Eating every 2-3 hours vs. 4-5 hours

    I've been thinking about this for the past couple of days and honestly just need some insight as to what's better for the body and metabolism. For the past year I've been eating 3 smaller meals plus snacks in between and they ended up being 2-3 hours apart. I definitely enjoy snacking so adjusting to the whole30 and not snacking/eating much fruit has been hard because I enjoy doing both. I also workout 5-6x a week and so in the fitness world all you see and read is how eating every 2-3 hours is what you want to do to speed up the metabolism and see progress. It's been hard eating 3 full meals and that's it. But I'm trusting process since I came into this with digestive issues so very hopeful and really trying to do my best following the template. What's the science behind eating every 2-3 hours vs 4-5?

    Chicken and pickles

    Chicken and pickles

    Thanks! I asked the ladies working in the kitchen and they said its plain, no seasonings at all, no sugar,salt or pepper either. There's another roasted chicken brand I got last week by Kroger Simple Truth which has water, salt and chicken and I'm just assuming whole foods is better quality hopefully, and they're the same price.

    Chicken and pickles

    Is the roasted chicken at whole foods whole 30 compliant? It's plain and seasoned with nothing. Also pickles: I have the brand called ‘farmans dill pickles’ and ingredients are: cucumbers, water, salt, vinegar, alum, calcium chrloride, natural flavors, yellow 5. Just want to make sure these are ok. Thanks!
