Hi! So before Whole30 I would cook meat at home 1-2x a month. I'd usually order it when I went out. But my diet was largely vegetables and carbs. Now I eat it everyday multiple times a day. I'm on Day10 and I'm so so so sick of eating meat! I have nothing against it I'm just tired of it. Did anyone else have this problem? How did you deal with it? I've eaten: -steak -pecan crusted pork chops -turkey burgers -roasted chicken
turista posted a topic in Troubleshooting your Whole30So I guess I'm struggling to eat in the morning cause I just have no appetite. Wake up around 7:30am but often not eating or drinking anything until about 10 or 11am, which pushes my second meal to about 4 or 5pm and then dinner around 9pm. (IF I have three meals). Getting plenty of water- probably minimum two liters a day. Sleep has been normal- about 7.5 hours a night. The food cravings have pretty much gone, and my energy levels have evened out- I'm usually pretty full and satisfied all the time now. I'm just feeling bored. Honestly I know I'm compliant but I keep guilting myself over not having enough greens or many vegetables besides sweet potato and tomatoes. Is it a problem to be having them like two meals a day? I love the taste and don't feel deprived in any way when I'm eating them but I noticed I've been somewhat avoiding greens and I don't think that's good... I purposefully haven't been measuring and writing every thing down because it brings out an obsessive diet control freak side of me that goes against the whole purpose of this challenge/way of life for me. But from memory I'll try to give you a decent idea of a typical day. BREAKFAST- 2 fried or scrambled eggs with scallions/shallots in ghee. sometimes also a compliant sausage or a small cut of steak or meat from the previous night's meal. sweet potato and carrot hash, 1/2 avocado smashed. 1/2 tomato. salt and pepper. half an orange. occasionally some strawberries or an apple if I'm still hungry after that (which is rarely!) LUNCH- chicken and fajitas (bell pepper and onion), homemade guacamole-1/2 avocado, 1/2 tomato and maybe a banana OR mustard chicken with mashed potato and asparagus. DINNER- roast potatoes, sweet potatoes, and carrots in herbs and olive oil. roast chicken breast or lamb chops. berries for dessert. OR steak, roasted sweet potatoes and salad (arugula/rocket and tomato with vinaigrette)
