paleostudent posted a topic in Troubleshooting your Whole30Hi, I just finished day 8 of my first Whole30, and I'm having a really hard time. I'm overwhelmingly exhausted for most of the day, even though I'm getting about as much sleep as I normally do. I'm having a really hard time concentrating (mostly because all I can think about is wanting to take a nap), and when I am going through many of my daily activities, I feel like I'm in the middle of a really thick, head-cold fog. I've done Paleo before (though not the Whole30) and never had any of these problems. As far as general digestive health goes, I feel so much better, but the lack of energy is really getting to me. I'm a student and in the middle of what will be another two weeks of midterms, and I'm beginning to get worried about the Whole30 getting in the way of my school work. I'm careful to drink a lot of water, though as far as my diet goes, I may have been erring on the side of more protein/fewer carbs (after reading some of the other threads, I've been trying to fix that). I was wondering if anyone had experienced something similar, and whether it went away within a reasonable time frame? Really, any suggestions are welcome. Thanks so much!
I woke up great today, had a great whole 30 breakfast, got some exercise and took a nap. When I woke up I felt like I've been kicked in the face and I'm extremely nauseated. I had a little roasted turkey for lunch but had to stop because it didn't want to stay down. I was shaky, but went to the grocery store anyway. I stuck to a whole 30 shopping list, but I keep wanting comfort food like mashed potatoes and bread to settle my stomach. My head tells me this will make me feel better, but after 21 days on the plan I don't want to quit and I don't think reintroducing is going to make me feel better, but worse. Honestly, I'm just feeling horrible and I don't want to slip. Any suggestions? or encouragement?
Well, it's day 15 over and I've spent the last 7 days fighting a monstrous cold (bordering on flu like symptoms: aches, pains, congestion, fever) but am on the mend now. Really, really, really struggling with cravings for sugar, which is strange because up until about day 12 I was absolutely fine. My resolve is starting to wane (it hasn't caved yet) but I keep thinking "ah well, 15 days isn't bad, I'll just knock it n the head now and restart when I feel better", but then I come to my senses! Anyone been having these problems at the half way mark? Karen x
