  1. 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
  2. So 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)
  3. Hi All! New to whole30 and currently on day 9 and nothing appeals. I know smoothies are a nono but i needed to eat something. Nuts, nut butters all bleh. I assume this happens to people but i feel more uninspired than i did during the first week. Any suggestions? thanks!
  4. Day 7 of my 2nd Whole30 here. I prepped a ton and I’m feeling pretty good, but struggling with mornings. I am up at 5 daily and I don’t get hungry in the mornings yet. On Monday, the idea of eating my frittata at 7:30 made me want to throw up. I choked half of it down and went about my day. I have some ideas from the forum that I’m implementing: - no coffee before food - mini meal to work up to real meal- today was two HB eggs, and spinach cooked in ghee - non egg breakfast ideas - I LOVE a good frittata or scramble but not at 5:30 How long is it going to take to adjust? Or a ballpark? I am with teenagers from 7:30-12:30 straight and can’t eat during those hours. Yesterday I was able to get down eggs and spinach at 5:45 but I didn’t get hungry again until mid morning. I want to get this right! thanks in advance
  5. After a rough day 6, I'm sitting pretty at day 7. The only problem? I have no appetite. I know I need to eat more but anytime I try to fuel up, I just can't. I love to eat, like really love to eat, so this is uncharted territory. Is this normal? Is there anything I need to be doing differently in my Whole30 to keep this from happening?

    Halted progress during period

    So I’m on day 25 of my first W30 and on probably the second to last day of my period. I feel like my progress mentally (and physically) is going backwards. I ate pretty healthy before whole 30 so I didn’t experience the awful carb flu or any other bad symptoms at the beginning (or I just didn’t due to other reasons). I was seriously loving life. ZERO cravings for sugar or carbs, high energy, no snacking between meals, only 1-2 servings of fruit a day, etc. however after starting my period on day 20 it’s like I have been backsliding. Snacking on nuts and fruit between meals, 3 servings of fruit a day, and overall decreased energy. I also noticed I’ve stopped having NSVs. Could this all be because of my period? Has anyone else experienced this? I am still following meal template. Here’s an example of what I ate today: bfast: 3 eggs, half an avocado, half a sautéed pepper, 1/2 cup blueberries lunch: butter lettuce salad with grilled chicken, 2 tbsp sunflower seeds, tomato, cucumber, kalamata olives, and olive oil dinner: chicken apple sausage cooked in ghee with asparagus i also snacked on sunflower seeds, mango, and more blueberries. I just feel helpless to my sugar cravings and appetite which I didn’t feel at all in days 1-19. Feeling very opposite of “food freedom” right now
  7. I am on day 16 of my 2nd whole30. I have not had much of an appetite at all, I have had to force myself to eat most of my meals. During my first whole30, I was always hungry, snacking all day and starving when it came to mealtime. This time: I had the stomach flu from day 9-12 but did not have much of an appetite before I got sick. My wife is not doing the Whole30 with me, but I am doing 90% of the cooking so most meals are Whole30 anyways. Been working out 4-5 days a week plus skiing one day a week. Cut coffee out of my diet completely this time. Sleeping normally.
