  1. Hello, It's my first time. And today's my Day 14. I do crossfit twice a week and I struggle with it... On day 8, for the first time ever, I felt like I was about to faint (never fainted, so I don't know). But I saw the stars and got really dizzy towards the end of my workout. I talked to my trainer, and she was telling me that it's a sign that my body needs more food. I had 2 hard-boiled eggs and a banana with 10ish almonds as a pre-workout meal that day. She told me that I need to find a decent source of carbs. *Before the Whole30, I used to eat only dinner (unhealthy one) most days, so I was used to working out with an empty stomach, so I was confused. but I guess this is the change the book was talking about. So, now I'm taking pre/post-workout meals more seriously. And here comes my question. 1. Has anyone experienced something similar?. I am used to feeling like my lung/legs are about to explode, but never felt dizzy, so I'm concerned. 2. On this Whole30 Meal Template, it says, "Include a small amount of protein (1/2 a meal size or smaller), and (optionally) a small amount of fat (1/2 a meal size or smaller). Do not add fuirt or carb-dense vegetables to your pre-workout snacks," and this article says, "your pre-workout meal should focus on protein and high-fiber carbohydrates – think chicken or turkey breast, lean beef, fish and seafood, as well as sweet and white potatoes, squashes, berries, melons, bananas, and beets." Protein, I get. What Am I supposed to do about Carbs?....My trainer says I should eat more carbs, but I just want to make sure I'm following Whole 30. When I google things,other posts seems to focus on protein and fat sources without carbs, so help me please.

    Too much potato!

    I'm starting June 1, but I started mapping out my meals (so I can do some shopping over the weekend) and realize I have a LOT of potatoes. I think I'm worried I won't feel full, and I tend to rely to heavily on carbs to round out a meal. How do you add fiber and nutrients to your meals without all the taters? Just lots of non-starchy veggies?
  3. So I'm a few days into my reintroduction and I'm thinking how successful my Whole 30 was, 4 lbs, 1 inch off my waist and an overall happy gut! I'm really only reintroducing a few things like oatmeal, sweetened creamer in my coffee and the occasional sweet treat (macaroons, yum!) so I'm wondering if by bringing these things back, am I making my body stop using its fat as fuel? Will it burn those cards instead thereby reducing my weight loss? I read that is what happens on Whole30, your body changes how it runs, so I'm worried that by reintroducing certain foods, it will stop burning fat in that way. Does anyone know the science around this? Is there a certain sugar/carb ratio to stay under to keep your body burning its fat for fuel?
  4. Hi Everyone! I am on Day 16 of my 3rd Whole 30, and I have very little energy and have been in a brain fog for the past 5 days. Overall, I feel like I definitely eat enough and drink enough water. At each mealtime I feel full at the end, and although I don't keep track of the amount of water I'm drinking, I drink several 32oz bottles worth during the day. My hunch is that I'm not getting enough fats and carbs in my diet, but I thought I would tap you all for all of your wisdom. My meal template for the past week has been as follows. My breakfast is the same everyday and I always eat leftovers for lunch. Breakfast Everday: -3 Eggs -2 Turkey Patties Dinners: -Sweet Potato Shepherds Pie with ground beef, carrots, onions, green peppers, garlic and carrot plus a salad with olive oil and vinegar -Chicken with green beans/almonds and potatoes with ketchup -Chicken Salad with guacamole/almonds/raisins -Corned beef and cabbage, carrots, and potatoes with ketchup -Moroccan beef with cauliflower rice, raisins, almonds, apricots, and onions -Chicken with prosciutto and asparagus, sweet potatoes and ketchup -Ground turkey with coconut milk curry and sweet potato noodles -Beef with tomatoes, onion, mushrooms, carrots -Beef with potatoes, carrots, onion, fennel and asparagus Thanks for your help!!!

    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
