Hi all, I've reached a point where I'm no longer embarrassed and just want answers. I haven't had a solid BM since I started January Whole30 (I'm on Day 17.) I've just had diarrhea constantly. Am I dehydrated? Do I need to incorporate a probiotic into my diet? More leafy greens? Please help a sister. Thank you!
This is my third attempt with whole30. I'm way further than I've ever been. I think it's helped this time that I had already eliminated grains and sugar. Let's back up to the previous days. Day 2 was the headache. Around day 5-12, I felt so amazing. Woke up spritely and ready for the world. Saturday (day 12), I got up at 4am and started house work and cleaning garage. We worked in the yard in the heat and humidity for hours. I ate plenty and stayed hydrated. Around 3, I hit a wall. I couldn't function or think and could barely stand. It's days later and still feel completely exhausted and broken. I've since upped my fruit and potato intake thinking that the carb depletion had me feeling so terrible. But now I'm just out of ideas. I've even started snacking more to try and bring myself back to the tiger blood. Please tell me what I need to do. I'm hanging by a thread.
sintah posted a topic in Troubleshooting your Whole30Hey Everyone! So, I'm currently on my 4th round of Whole60. This is the fourth time I've done the program since 9/2013. I consider myself pretty well versed in the program. I've pretty much studied and memorized the rules and everything and follow the program well. I'm even mentoring some friends who are doing the program with me on a facebook group! Each of my Whole30's have been magnificent, tiger blood and all. However, this round has been quite different than any other Whole30 and I don't know why. -Day 4, I had tiger blood and felt amazing! Since then, I haven't really had the same "tiger blood" feeling. -For the last 5 or so days, I've felt tired upon waking. I'm getting 7.5-8 hours of sleep a night, as usual. I'm eating my meals as I should, following the meal planning template for protein, veggies, fat and some nuts/fruits. Again, no different than I have done in my prior Whole30's. -Emotionally, I kind of feel out of whack. Today, I woke up full of energy. By the time I arrived at work, I felt super tired and sad for no reason at all. I've been scatter brained like crazy and my moods have been a little different than normal. Nothing stressful is going on in my life right now, so I don't know what that's about either. After reading some prior forum posts the best thing I can think of, is I need more starchy veggies. Typically, I eat a fair amount of sweet potatoes. This time, I've only had them maybe 2-3 times, and regular potatoes another 2-3 times. Whereas in the past, I may have a serving every other day. I'm not super active, I work at a desk all day. I haven't been working out, although I will be starting to add some cardio in soon (nothing crazy, just moderate to see if my mood improves.) So, what gives? Any ideas as to what is causing this? I'm baffled because this hasn't happen to me before on a Whole30 and don't know what's causing it. One thing I will add that is positive and a NEW thing that hasn't happen in my prior whole30's. I have had literally NO cravings for ANYTHING off plan the entire time. Zilch. Don't know why that is either. HELP, please! Thanks!! =D
