sherylk464 posted a topic in Join the Whole30Hello! I started yesterday on 5/22 and today is Day 2! It's my first Whole30, and I'm excited and nervous for the next 29 days (all good energy). I am a chronic calorie counter and I'm trying to get away from that pattern to not obssess, so I'm worried I may actually not be eating enough, even though I'm following the meal plan. Any thoughts, comments, feedback or advice is greatly appreciated! Breakfast: -black coffee -2 eggs cooked in a spoonful of coconut oil (my protein) -whole bowl full of roasted veggies from last night that were coated with 1 or 2 spoonsfuls of coconut oil (veggies) -1/2 an avocado (my fat) -1/2 a cup of fresh blueberries (I'm following the guidelines and only having fruit sparingly) -a bit of apple cider vinegar from trader joes -2 glasses of water Lunch: - is this too much fat? I find I will be bored or unsatiated if I don't add the nuts or avocado for texture -palmful sized chicken breast from last night cooked with onions and 1 or 2 spoons of coconut oil (protein) -Big salad with arugula and broccoli slaw (just broccoli and carrots) filling a huge bowl and adding 2 persian cucumbers and 2 pieces of hearts of palm (veggies) -Tossed in spoonful of sesame oil and lime juice (fat) -spoonful of dry roasted slivered almonds (protein? fat?) -1/2 avocado from this morning (fat) Dinner: -I'll make meatballs (what I would fit into my palm) with lean ground beef and put it over a big bowl of zoodles I will spiral (protein & veggies) -will add a spoonful of olive oil and chives (fat) Pre WO: -hardboiled egg (protein & fat) Post WO: -palm sized chicken breast (since weight loss is a goal, I probably will be omitting the optional starchy carb) Sipping water throughout the day Thanks!!
Raya44 posted a topic in Whole30 Meal PlanningHello! Quick review of background and goals: I am on Day 7. I am a 43 year old woman who exercises 5 days per week (SPX Pilates, running, weights), travels extensively for client meetings and is doing Whole30 to control migraines, energy supply and regulate mood. I am 5'5" and weigh approximately 117 lbs. I would like to lose some additional body fat and gain lean muscle mass. Before the program, I had a headache every day. I have a noticed a reduction in my headaches. I also have started to pay attention to my sleep, aiming for 8-9 hours a night. This is a change in my routine. Prior to Whole30, I would have my "hungry days" and my "un-hungy days". I would at times go for 2-3 days without eating more than 400 calories per day due to not paying attention to my hunger signals. My work days can last (with travel) as much as 18-plus hours (though I am attempting to limit this, as lack of sleep does trigger my headaches). Drinking about 64 oz of water per day with 1 packet of Nature's Calm. Stopped all supplements for the Whole30. Meals/activity: 9 am - 8 oz black coffee, 3 hard boiled egg whites (yolks ok?), 1 medium banana, water 12:45 pm - 1 RX bar (blueberry), water (needed an emergency "on the go" snack 1:40 pm - SPX Pilates (50 minutes) 3 pm - 1/4 c raw almonds, water 6 pm - (at a restaurant) 2 c lettuces with peppers and 1 T EVOO, 4 oz rare tuna, 1/4 c avocado, club soda with lime, 1/2 c decaf coffee 8:30 pm (because I was starving) - 1/8 c raw almonds, green tea (organic), 1/2 sweet potato, water with Nature's Calm I am thinking I need to add veggies at breakfast and maybe more fats? Thank you in advance! P.S. Made the salmon cakes from the Whole30 book for dinner last night and they were AWESOME.
