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
Hello, I've been reading about and researching the Whole 30 for the past couple weeks. Yesterday I made a week of meals plans and went shopping. This morning I had my first compliant meal--scrambled eggs with onions, mushrooms, spinach, and 1/4 an avocado. It tasted pretty good, but it was too much fat and made me a little sick to my stomach (I used a TBL of coconut oil to cook the eggs). I guess I need to stick to the lower end of the fat recommendations. I'm excited to be starting this challenge and hopeful that it will make a big difference in the way I feel. But I'm also worried that I won't be able to stay away from sugar. I have spent some time thinking about what I will do when I really start craving sugar or some other off-plan food. Maybe that will make a difference. Right now I'm really wanting my morning cup of tea with sugar. Time to drink some water and distract myself. I hope I can get plenty of support here.
