So this is my Day 6. Before Whole30, I was 70-80 lbs overweight and basically living on carbs and junk food. I was absolutely a hardcore carb addict Since starting Whole30, I basically haven't been hungry at all. Don't get me wrong- I'm following the program and eating my three meals a day. But I never feel starving and I barely feel hungry. Also, I'm not craving ANYTHING (what the heck?). It makes me wonder if I'm doing something wrong. I don't think I'm eating too much or anything, but this is just SO strange. I expected this to be so much harder. The Sugar Dragon has yet to rear its ugly head, and the only things I'm really missing are Diet Coke and a glass of wine after work. I'm not even relying on fruit, I've only been eating one very large fuji apple a day. This isn't normal for me- on previous carb-cutting eating plans I've tried, the Sugar Dragon was brutal. HOWEVER I feel like my mood is basically a rollercoaster. My experience really isn't closely following the Whole30 timeline. I go from feeling good about things, to ambivalent, to downright grumpy. I never really had a "Kill All the Things," just grouchy. And I'm already really really bored with food. Which worries me, because it's super early, and also, I've been cooking a large variety of Whole30 compliant recipes. I've been sleepy the whole time and also not sleeping well. I had to pop a melatonin the last two night just to get some sleep, since I'm a nurse and if I don't sleep, I put my patients in danger by being less alert. Anyway, I'm just seeking some sort of validation or confirmation that this can be normal. I am 100% committed to my Whole30, and I am 100% committed to improving my health. Thank you in advance! -Jessica
Hi! I finished my Whole 30 earlier this month. I'm concerned and frustrated because I was sick from week 2 - week 4. Not "I have a cold" sort of sick (nor am I pregnant). I had no appetite, was queasy and had headache's all the time. I believe I ate a lot, so I am really confused as to what happened. Also good to note I am extremely active and worked out 4-5 days a week for at least one hour. A couple days worth of meals: *Whenever I had eggs, I ate 3. Meal 1: Scrambled eggs with bell peppers, onions and sometimes avocado Meal 2: 4-5oz steak with 1-2 cups Brussels sprouts or asparagus and 1/2 cup potatoes Meal 3: 4-5 oz pork with 1-2 cups cauliflower or broccoli or 4 cups kale/spinach salad with a tessamae dressing Snack: (had to or I was ravenous) cashews and almonds (only 1/4 cup) --- Meal 1: yam hash with onion, bell peppers, poached eggs (totaled about 1.5 cups) Meal 2: 4-5 oz chicken with 1 cup mashed cauliflower Meal 3:4-5oz pork or steak with 1-2 cups mixed veggies (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, sweet potato) Snack: cashews and almonds (1/4 cup) --- I'm thinking I'm sensitive to avocado, because I was especially queasy after that... Anyone have an idea? It makes me really sad I felt terrible most of the time (only the first week was ok, it went down hill after that).
