I am on Day Two of my Whole 30 today. I've never done a complete Whole 30, but I have done it for two weeks at a time here and there and definitely liked how I felt. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for about six months and I thought this might be a good way to clean out my system. I looked at past topics and didn't see any recent topics about fertility. Just checking in here to see if anyone else is doing Whole 30 while trying to conceive or if anyone has had recent luck from doing it. Could use some encouragement! I did one round of letrozole last cycle and will start my second round next week. So far, the Whole 30 has been OK, but I have been super hungry today. Looking back at some other posts leads me to believe I'm not eating enough. Meal 1: two soft boiled eggs, handful of wilted spinach, 1/2 baked sweet potato with ghee, black tea Meal 2: two compliant chicken sausage links, with one onion and 1/2 bell pepper sauteed in coconut oil. STARVING this afternoon and had several pieces of fruit leather which I know is not good, but it's all I had here at my office. I guess I need to be more prepared for the office.
Hi! I have been wanting to take the Whole30 Challenge for years and have always found an excuse not to...... Now I am 19 weeks pregnant with my second baby and I’m constantly craving sugar and gross processed foods.... even fast food! I am generally a healthy eater, but I can just tell that something is out of whack with my body that is unrelated to pregnancy. I feel sluggish and unmotivated. And I’m ready to make a change. I want to be the best person I can be for myself and my family. And I want to take care of my body and nourish my soul. Looking forward to beginning on February 12th!
Hi all! I’m on day 6 of my Whole30. This is my first pregnancy, so 1st whole30 pregnant! I feel great after eating pretty much crap during first trimester. My question is: is it recommended to snack? I’ve been getting hungry around 3pm so I’ll have a can of smoked oysters, an epic bar, or an apple with almond butter. HMHB handouts show sample days with a snack but i know it’s recommended to stay away from normally. I just want to make sure my hunger is really hunger and not my sugar dragon. Any advice or tips? I know it’s different growing a human and if I’m hungry, i should just eat. Not trying to over analyze just want to make sure I’m doing it right! Anyone continue a whole30 throughout the rest of pregnancy? I’d like to attempt. We found out we are having a little boy!!!
Melissa Hartwig posted a topic in Whole30 while pregnant or breastfeedingWe are not doctors, and we will always defer to your pediatrician's recommendations. However, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you know how important Mom's nutrition is to the baby's health and development, and we believe the diet that's healthiest for you is also going to be the healthiest for your baby. The more nutrition Mom receives from her diet, the more she is able to pass along to the little one â€“ and there is no diet more nutritious than one that focuses on healthy protein and fat, vegetables, and fruits. Michele Blackwell, an OB/GYN in Houston, TX, agrees, saying: I have personally experienced the benefits of the Whole30 program, and I wholeheartedly recommend the Whole30 plan to my patients to optimize a woman's health during pregnancy and lactation. The nutrient-dense foods recommended provide ample vitamins and minerals without the need for the standard prenatal supplement. Eating real food Whole9-style will also help regulate blood sugars, alleviating hypoglycemic spells common in pregnancy. In addition, the Whole30 will reduce the likelihood of gestational diabetes, excess pregnancy weight gain, and possibly macrosomia (large babies) and polyhydramnios (excess amniotic fluid). -Michele Blackwell, M.D., F.A.C.O.G, Board Certified Obstetrics and Gynecology We've had many pregnant women and new moms attest to the benefits of the Whole30 for both the mother's health, and the child's. Most (if not all) have reported that milk supply actually improved during their program, and their babies were less fussy, slept better through the night and experienced less digestive issues and rashes.
