    Nice!! I ran 12.5 today and am dealing with some serious runner. Trying not to consume every quick accessible food I have (already had 2 small apples, some nut butter, some pistachios) before I make dinner. Not easy!

    Welcome @GraceMelodie   I have never heard of this Run the Edge thing before, thanks for sharing @jenrunsaustin!! I adore the Goucher family so I will definitely look into that.

    Also a runner! Goal is to start tomorrow. I've done one "true" whole30 before, a few smaller ones (7 day, 28 day, 14 day) thrown in there over the past few years as well. Wanting to do a true whole 30 the right way this month, and I suspect it might jolt my system! I've been pretty paleo over the past 3 years but have really slid away from that the past 6 months (eating peanut butter on toast right as we speak!) The first time I did a whole30 I was pretty lethargic or apathetic toward running during the first 2 weeks, so hoping to avoid that but we'll see. I do want to BQ at some point this year, but I have yet to commit to any races this year except for a half marathon in a couple of weeks. Other than that, I want to try to run 2019 miles in 2019, so just keeping the mileage up. I need people to hold me accountable so I'm so happy to have found this thread!

    Woot woot Samianne724! Virtual high five on your win. I'm going into week 3 of my Whole30 (with a recent restart this past Friday when I learned corn is not an acceptable veggie...I know...I know...but in fairness I wasn't aware it's not in plan; just my food ignorance showing) and haven't had many temptations. I loved sweets and baked goods. Only once have I thought about cake, but it was a passing moment. Not a true craving. 
     
    Then there was one night last week when I couldn't sleep. I kept my tingling hands busy by watching Tasty on FB (the one with the food prep videos that are addicting to watch). I tried to only watch the videos with food I could eat but eventually found myself watching dessert video after baked goods video. Surprisingly, it didn't give me cravings and I didn't throw on my tennis shoes and head to the nearest gas station to stock up on Hostess goodies (as I have in the past no matter the hour of night).
     
    Be proud of that moment! And the next one to come!!

    Woah! It is crazy how much I can relate to you. I am struggling on day 10 as well, and have been fighting an ED relapse recently. 
     
    I have been a bottomless pit today... nothing is satisfying me or filling me up. I've been fighting my sugar dragon like no other. My roommate's mom made these huge, delicious looking double chocolate-chip cookies and I said to myself, "f*** it," and picked one up. As it was in my fingers I said to myself "no, fight it. you're stronger than this." And I did!! I'm feeling SO empowered right now, and not even tempted. I feel silly for being so proud of rejecting a cookie (or the urge to purge all the whole30 healthy and compliant foods I just ate), but you know what? It's real. So I'm going to let myself enjoy this proud moment in all of its glory, and you should too!

    As a runner, you likely have sugar dragon issues (I speak from experience!). All the years of fueling on sugary stuff takes its toll, and one Whole30 may not be enough to break your dependence on it. It's a slippery slope -- consuming a little puts me right back on the cravings pretty quickly.
     
    If you want to use protein shakes because it's more convenient than packing chicken and sweet potatoes for recovery, why not try compliant pouch of tuna and sweet potato baby food packets?
     
    If you are determined to keep using this stuff, you would definitely want to do the full reintroductions of dairy, sugar, wheat, non-gluten grains and legumes to discover what you might have issues with before consuming them again.
