    Day 8 new member - Stuck!

    Hi all! Yay, I finally figured out that I needed to create an account in here! I’m glad I’ve found you guys! I’m on day 8 and I still feel like I’m on the 3rd day. I’ve got the brain fog, headache, and hanger. There are 2 main things contributing to this, I believe. First, I’m not eating enough protein or enough in general. Second, which also leads back to 1, is I have major menu and cooking fatigue. I’m picky so my protein choices are limited. I think I’ve had eggs 7 out of 8 days and I’m sooo sick of them, it’s hard to get the whole meal down. Same with chicken. And the leftovers get all dry and hard to swallow, too. Making meals that aren’t delicious makes me lose my motivation to cook. I need sweet potatoes to have something bulky, but I can barely eat them now too. I am definitely feeling the positives though too. I’m less moody and irritable. Despite the brain fog at times, I’m also able to think more clearly. I know this is good for me, and I’m not going to give up. I’d love help with ideas for more on the go stuff (no jerky or compliant cold cut please!) I’m even sick of my beautiful veggie and garlic aioli bento box! I do home visits so I don’t have access to a microwave midday. Thanks for reading and for any tips or words of encouragement you can give! Cathy

    Brain Fog

    So... is anyone else dealing with brain fog? I seriously feel like I am losing my mind. It makes everything so much harder! I don't know if it is from my drastic change in food, the fact that I have an 11-month-old that doesn't sleep through the night, or a combo of both... and am still just so tired.
  3. Hi! I was eating what I considered a fairly healthy diet before whole 30. Bread + Pasta were defineitly my weakness though and a bit of a sweet tooth. I am 27y / 103lb / active (workout atleast 2x a week) and walk about 15k steps per day. On the whole 30 program i find my self feeling extremely fatigued (though I feel I’m eating more than before) with muscle pain and a total lack of interest in working out, i just want to go home and lay down after work. A typical food day: breakfast: 1/2 sweet potato, two eggs cooked in coconut oil or ghee, spinach sautéed, 1 avocado. Black coffee (my breakfasts all contain a mix of these ingredients served different ways) with the occasional addition of a banana who almond butter or cooked apples) Lunch: soup (2cups) containing (carrot, sweet potato, russet potato, celery, sausage, collard greens + spinach) plus one piece of fruit (peach, banana, cherries with almond butter) seltzer / regular water dinner: collard wraps (2) with spicy ground turkey, peppers, carrots, cucumber, purple+green cabbage. Seltzer / regular water Or zoodles with ground turkey + compliant marinara and a vegetable (cauliflower) But generally some form of veggie+ meat mix. Im just unsure why I’m feeling so sluggish and unmotivated! uploaded a bunch of my meals for size reference
