  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. I'm on Day 10 and woke up from another night of absolutely drenching my sheets from night sweats. This is the 4th or 5th time I've gotten them so far. From what I've read, it's likely caused by a hormone imbalance from changing my diet. That being said, any idea when this will end? I'm drowning in laundry over here!
  3. Hi all! This is my first post on the forum. I am 10 days into my W30. I was a little nervous coming in as I am recently pescatarian (after about 10 years as a vegetarian, and several of those spent as vegan). I have done some elimination diets in the past but have always struggled with feeling like my body was lacking or missing something. I have quite a few gut issues as well as auto immune-related conditions (anxiety, asthma, heartburn, ibs, graves disease *in remission* to name a few)...I have often felt like a lot of my health issues were directly related to my gut health as every other aspect is 100% unremarkable on paper. According to labs and tests I am one of the healthiest women alive, but inside I feel like I am dying / falling apart. It was upon my acupuncturist's recommendation that I give the Whole 30 a try. As an aside I have been gluten free for coming up on 4 years now, I went GF in an attempt to help my thyroid and the switch was the reason that my levels normalized and have been normal for about 3 years now! With that said, when I switched to GF I started ironically (or maybe not so ironic) eating a TON more carbs (mostly in the form of brown rice and sugar in processed foods.) My days before Whole 30 included shrimp, hummus, oats, gluten free bread, amys tv dinners, fruit and peanut butter - I also probably had pizza about once a week. I considered myself to eat "fairly healthy" but in retrospect it probably was not a very balanced diet with very little protein. The first week I dealt with a LOT of spaciness, often feeling like I'm in a dream, not really here and VERY anxious. I was able to push through a little bit of this but mildly exerting myself. Starting around day 3 I started experiencing bouts of light headedness, one day, starting to grey out and seriously thinking I was going to faint. I have been feeling like I am eating enough - and not really getting very hungry between meals - the only times I have snacked have been when I am having intense afternoon slumps. I normally exercise 3-4 days a week but have only worked out once since starting this because I just don't have the energy and feel so sick and light-headed when I have tried to exert myself much. By Day 5 or 6, the spaciness and brain fog had lifted slightly but then I started getting horrible crashes in the afternoon between about 2 PM and 7 PM. On a few of these days I have had some increased energy starting around 8 or 9 PM and lasting through until bedtime. I feel pretty relaxed at bedtime but then have woken with horrible anxiety or starts for most of the nights I have been on the W30. My blood pressure and blood sugar have remained normal/stable although today when I was feeling particularly tired and light-headed, I took it and it was 110/61 which is the lowest its been in a while. I mostly just wanted to share my experience as well as the food I have been eating to see if I am on track and need to eat more and/or different types of foods to maintain energy and mood. I am not sure at this point what is W30 and what is anxiety but I have been feeling pretty damn crappy, weak, tired, anxious and light headed for a week now. The most frustrating part is that I actually felt way better before I started doing this but am trying to stick it out until the end as I really want to see what good this could do my body, specifically my gut health. I just don't want to do it at the cost of hurting my health more. As a pescatarian I am pretty maxed out on eggs and fish and ways to get creative. I don't know if anyone else has concerns about mercury but eating seafood every single day and sometimes twice a day does make me a little nervous. Since my only sources of protein are really nuts, fish and eggs, I burn out pretty quickly. Any feedback and/or recommendations are greatly appreciated. Thank you! Monday: Breakfast - 2 scrambled eggs with guacamole and 1 1/2 c coconut chia pudding with sautéed bananas and pureed almond meal Snack - Cherry Pie Lara Bar Lunch - shrimp curry (coconut milk, spices and coconut amigos as sauce) - with red onion, zucchini, red bell pepper, carrots and portabella as veggies Snack - Electrolyte "smoothie" - 1 c kale, 1 banana and 1 c cashew malk Dinner - blistered shishito peppers cooked in olive oil with lime and basil, 2 hard boiled egg whites, spinach and kale salad with small amounts egg yellow and white, celery, raw shisito peppers with oil and vinegar dressing Tuesday: Breakfast - 2 scrambled eggs, 1/2 c hashbowns, 1/2 avocado, 4 or 5 cherry tomatoes and 1/2 banana Lunch - salmon and avocado salad with lemon, green onions, tomatoes, parsley & baked sweet potato "fries" Snack - Electrolyte "smoothie" - 1 c kale, 1 banana and 1 c cashew malk Dinner - egg quiche (piece about 5"l x 4"w) with white onions, mushrooms, spinach, pumpkin & crab dip (crab, w30 approved mayo, red peppers, jalapeños, green onions) with some plantains (fried in coconut oil) Snack - 2 coconut rolled dates with 1 tsp each almond butter Wednesday: Breakfast - leftover egg quiche (piece about 5"l x 4"w), 1/2 avocado, 1/2 banana Lunch - leftover egg quiche (piece about 5"l x 4"w), 1 medium sized tomato, handful macadamia nuts, handful cherries Post-Workout Snack - 3/4 sweet potato with 2 tablespoons almond butter and cinnamon Dinner - We are going to make grilled shrimp with butternut squash noodles, cashew cream sauce and sautéed spinach or zucchini)

    Day 10 of Reintroduction

    I am entering my last week of whole30, so I started researching the reintroduction phase. On day 10 of the reintroduction, I am leaving town for the weekend and won't have access to a kitchen or many healthy options. I was wondering if there is any benefit of going back on the whole30 for the 2 extra days after day 10 since I will have already figured out what messes with me and what doesn't.
  5. Hi all! This is going to be messy, and if you are feeling a bit frustrated with Whole30, I'd actually recommend not reading this and moving on to a more encouraging thread. That said- I need to get a few things out there. I know, Day 10 is one of the hardest days, blah, blah, blah but I have few bones to pick with this program: There are the superficial things. I feel like I'm eating too much meat (from an environmental stand point), eggs are driving me crazy, I just really want to have a salad dressing that actually tastes good, etc. But none of this is that big of a deal. Overall, I've had tons of positives so far. I definitely went through a sugar detox, and I'm amazed I've went this long without chocolate. This is probably the longest I've done so in my adult life, actually. I'm eating tons of vegetables and loving it! And I usually don't miss bread and cheese (except at that NFL playoff party where everyone had pizza). My physical side effects were mostly on days 2-4. Best of all, my husband is making the best dietary choices I've ever seen him make. But (and this is huge, ginormous but), I have a major issue with this program. And honestly, its also one of the reasons I chose this option. Yeah, I know. I'm a conflicted, confusing person...but here it is: Legalism. The rules, the black and white, the "tough love". It's too much. I think its warranted in many facets of the program. I agree with the basics of eliminating dairy, grains, legumes, added sugar etc. for 30 days and then seeing what the reintroduction does for you. I agree that there should be no scheduled cheat days and that there are no accidents. I even agree with restarting when it is clear that the rules have been violated. However, SWYPO is where I believe there should be a gray area. For the most part, I accept the concept that you shouldn't recreate desserts, breads, etc. Using odd substitutions to recreate things doesn't usually pan out. However, there a few things that baffle me. For instance (and I can see the eyes rolling already from all you mods and die-hard whole 30ers)- egg/banana pancakes. No one would complain if I ate a banana, two eggs, some compliant chicken sausage and sautéed veggies. But heaven forbid I mix the egg/banana together! IT IS LITERALLY THE SAME MEAL! (nutritionally speaking...) Of course, if a person had a deep connection to pancakes, they shouldn't go there, but really... Now I know, this is going to get a lot of response about how your brain lights up the pleasure centers based on how your food looks, blah blah blah... Ok. Then tell me how banana-egg pancakes are any different/worse that LaCroix? It is a fizzy drink with an honestly yucky taste that comes in a pretty can....just like diet coke. How is LaCroix not SWYPO, but egg banana pancakes are? Just saying... Anyway, I know everyone is going to focus on the pancakes here, but I just wanted to say that I'm going to continue my 30 days as compliant as I can- but if I bend the rules here and there, does it really matter if it leads to lasting healthier choices?
  6. I know it's normal to have headaches but I've had one since day 3 that's progressively getting worse. Today the pounding is HORRIBLE and it's making me feel pressure in my sinuses. I know I'm not sick cuz that's the only thing wrong and last time I had a sinus infection it did not feel like this. Is this still normal? Am I possibly consuming too much protein?
  7. Hello! I am starting to worry that this isn't working for me. I am on Day 10 and I have not cheated at all. I am proud of that, but I still have eczema on my hands and scalp - which I was hoping would be better, and I am SO TIRED. I'm trying not to drink coffee in the afternoons, but I keep waiting for that energy burst I read about and I am discouraged that I don't have that yet. I just tried to go for my first jog since starting the Whole 30 and my legs feel like lead. Does everyone get the energy-all-day-effect that comes from the plan? I wake up tired and go to bed tired and could take a nap right now. Help!

    Think I'm doing it right?

    Hi Everyone, I'm on day 10 of my first Whole 30 and I'm hoping that I'm doing this right because I don't feel much better... The first several days I consumed canola oil with a few meals because, unknowingly, the artichokes I used were in olive and canola oil, even though it isn't labeled that way on the front. Since then, I've been compliant with all ingredients. I should add that I have celiac disease and lactose intolerance, so I've avoided gluten and dairy for a long time before starting the W30. I guess I'm feeling a little disappointed/confused because I feel so tired--though instead of ups and downs feeling tired before, it's pretty much a consistent tired feeling throughout the day. I do exercise a lot--Crossfit in the morning before work and I teach Zumba three weekday evenings, and I take 1-2 days rest per week. Because CF is at 5:30am, I haven't been eating beforehand, but I make sure to eat a fritata loaded with veggies and meat afterward, along with a smoothie of coconut milk, kale, spinach, and fruit. This keeps me full until lunch (noon), and I try to fill up at lunch to keep me satisfied until dinner but by 2:30-4:00 (my very low energy dip) I am starving, exhausted, drained, and have a headache. Is this all normal? I suspect I may just need to be patient, but I'd love to hear thoughts from people who have done this before. Thank you for your time!
  9. Hello! I am on day 10 now and feeling fantastic! Its easy to go shopping because there are so many things I cannot have so less decisions to be made, I eat big platefuls of really yummy food, I don't get hungry again for ages, my breastmilk supply has not altered as far as I am aware, my "mummy brain" has gone, no afternoon lull, really happy and cheery all the time, better skin, and my jeans are much looser. This is fab. Normally when I drop my 3 year old at nursery school for the afternoon I come home desperate for a rest and hoping my 7 month old will nap. Today I put baby in the carrier and walked up to the supermarket (only half a mile or less) to get some bits and pieces and I really enjoyed the exercise. This way of eating is so helpful when you have young kids and don't get much chance to sit still! Oh and I will probably lose weight but actually I'm not bothered about that now. Loving it
