  1. I am day 7 on my very first whole 30 and I am wondering if I am eating way too much fat, starch and if my portion sizes are way too big. I just need some help because I really want to succeed. I went into this thinking I hated most veggies but I have realized I actually love them and this has been life changing so far. My eating in a day: Black coffee, 2 eggs fried in olive or coconut oil(I cover the bottom of the pan) sometimes I add spinach to eggs, a potato hash(butternut squash, sweet potato, white potato) previously roasted and warmed up in same pan as eggs. These are always a very generous portion of the hash. Like very. Lunch: some kind of roasted veggies warmed in a pan with oil, roasted chicken with guac or dip Supper: a lot like lunch but maybe with some potato hash. I hardly ever snack maybe a banana at night. And I drink the water I need to. My servings of veggies are always well over half my plate but not sure if I'm eating too much starch (low carb diet recovery) Help!!!
  2. After a rough day 6, I'm sitting pretty at day 7. The only problem? I have no appetite. I know I need to eat more but anytime I try to fuel up, I just can't. I love to eat, like really love to eat, so this is uncharted territory. Is this normal? Is there anything I need to be doing differently in my Whole30 to keep this from happening?
  3. I have a six month old, and decided to start Whole 30 mainly because it is a diet that focuses on health rather than weight loss. Among my many non-scale goals is to increase my energy (I deal with a lot of fatigue), eliminate my cravings, find foods that make me less healthy, and create healthy eating habits. That said, today, day 7, I woke up very hungry at 6 am, but I wanted to sleep in. When I did get up for breakfast, I felt the symptoms of low blood sugar. I tried to eat breakfast, but had such a queasy stomach, I couldn't eat more than a few bites. My symptoms got increasingly worse very fast. My mom was concerned and call some close friends for me. By the time they arrived, I had drank some orange juice and raised my blood sugar to 71. Still low but a lot better! They fed me (non whole30 foods) but I was in no mood to protest. After reading forums in search of answers, I have come to the conclusion that I need to eat more! (kind of obvious, but I thought I was eating enough). I've learned my lesson, but my very kind, well-meaning friend was pretty adamant that I needed to eat more sugar. After all that, I'm have a struggle with being confident in this program. I was having feeling great the last 2 days (kind of surprising, as I was expecting to feel worse before I felt better.) Then this came out of nowhere! After reading the forums, I feel that the general advice for breastfeeding moms is to eat 4 large meals and 1-2 additional mini meals when needed. I already have decided that I will have a mini breakfast early every morning, even if I'm going back to sleep (those night-time feedings leave me tired and hungry by morning). I just need encouragement from people who don't believe more sugar is the answer.
  4. Hi, I'm on day 7 of my whole30 and feel progressively worse everyday. I started for 2 reasons - 1. I have ulcerative colitus, and am looking for a way to control it though diet and 2. though years of flares, I've become overly reliant on carbs and sugar for energy - time I've spent feeling so unwell that the only thing that appeals is jelly on toast, and I think that's had a psychological effect on my 'need' for carbs and sugar. (Worth noting, though, that I was no flaring when I started). But I just feel awful and so frustrated. I'm training for a marathon, and I suck at running since I started. I feel constantly light headed and sick, and because nothing else appeals I'm eating too many nuts and dried fruit (I know, I know - tell me how to stop). My stomach feels almost as bad as when I'm having a UC flare, and I look about 5 months pregnant. Plus, I live in Greece i.e. carb and legume heaven. It is *so* hard to find complient food here - and I cannot get my hands on a sweet potato no matter how hard I look. (On the plus side, incredible olive oil!!) I'm searching for some tips, some encouragement, reasssurance that I'll feel better soon, because I am so close to just throwing in the towel, eating some jam and bread and actually being able to enjoy my long run today... Thanks all.
  5. Hi, So I'm on day 7 of my 1st Whole30. I am a total sugar addict (also have a Hx od EDNOS) which I plan to totally kick during this month and never return to. I've had no problem at all staying compliant with meals, no SWYPO stuff and somehow I haven't even wanted sugar, at all (I did return from an overseas trip the day before I started W30 and I did majorly 'indulge' while away, not sure if that would make a difference). Anyway, because I know how much I love sugar I have avoided all fruit thus far (other than unsweetened 100% apple sauce which is part of my jerky marinade) as I didn't want to trigger the sugar response. But tonight, after dinner (yummy mince n veg curry - which I made while my folks went out and got burgers n fish n chips for tea to bring home - not even tempted there thank goodness!) I discovered apples in the fridge. I wasn't craving sugar but once I saw them I REALLY wanted one. So I ate it with some almond butter (damn apples are SO sweet and delicious). I ate it slowly and enjoyed it but now I am feeling really guilty. It was kinda like having a dessert (I used to always want something sweet after savoury) and I am really worried its gonna trigger the sugar demon. I mean technically it was a compliant food but I kinda feel like I have cheated. Am I just being silly or venturing on dangerous territory? I'm worried now I have had one I will want one every day. Apologies this is so long, I really DONT want to screw this up. On a side note I did a test for Ketones this morning when I got up - they registered as medium. Reckon this means I am becoming fat adapted? Long post, sorry. K
