Hi all - I'm on day 25 and I have been exhausted nearly every day of my Whole30 experience. I'm looking for recommendations. I have searched the forums far and wide and I have tried various ideas from other posts - increasing my protein, increasing my starchy vegetables, drinking more water (tons of water), getting more sleep (7-8 hours a night) - but nothing seems to be working. I know this journey is not about weight loss, but I did cheat and checked the scale this morning, and I haven't lost any weight. My pants and wedding ring still fit the same way, too. I'm overweight, so it definitely isn't an issue related to "I don't have much weight to lose." I workout for 30 minutes every morning, too. My sleep has not improved. My skin has not improved. What am I doing wrong? I felt much better prior to doing Whole30, for reference. A few examples of recent food days include: Monday: Breakfast (7 a.m.): 1 banana, hard boiled egg, 2 cups coffee black Lunch (12:30 p.m.): 1 cup grilled boneless/skinless chicken breast, 1 cup red/green peppers, 1 small apple Dinner (6:30 p.m.): 1.5 cups pan-fried tilapia, 1 tbsp olive oil used for all the fish, 1/2 cup cauliflower rice, 1/2 cup broccoli, small sweet potato Tuesday: Breakfast (8:30 a.m.): 2 eggs, fried in a small amount of avocado oil (the spray type - 1 second spray), 1 small sweet potato, 2 cups coffee black Lunch (1 p.m.): Chipotle Whole30 chicken salad Dinner (6:30 p.m.): 1 cup of chicken (boneless/skinless, baked), 1/4 cup avocado, compliant salsa, 1/4 cup onion, lettuce leaves as wraps, 1/2 cup butternut squash Any ideas? Thanks!
