Hey all, I am doing my first Whole90 after doing several Whole30s over the past five years and with two Whole45s and a Whole60 under my belt. I'm on Day 63 today and have been WANTING junk food for a week or so now. It's not cravings like my blood sugar is low or I'm still in sugar-burner mode. I happily eat all the fat and am rarely hungry anymore unless it's been six or so hours since I've eaten. A typical day looks like today... Meal 1 -Salisbury steak meatballs over sweet potato noodles, topped with cilantro -herbal tea with collagen powder Meal 2 -shrimp and broccoli with coconut aminos, furikake seasoning, and scallions -pickles with mayo -GT's Gingerade kombucha Meal 3 -burger with shallots and Brussel's sprouts topped with ghee -handful of TigerNuts I'm following the meal template to the best of my abilities, most of my recipes come from one of the Whole30 books, and I can easily go four to five hours without eating. I don't snack anymore and have post-work out meals when needed. I do relaxation yoga at home nearly everyday, took part in a meditation course last month, and have been sleeping 8-9 hours most nights. I also always have water on hand; have been using the Whole30 Day By Day this round (which is what I think got me this far!); and take Vital Proteins beef liver, Beauty Boost, and spirulina supplements. I feel like my brain may just be throwing a tantrum as I've never stayed Whole30 this long, but it's super frustrating and I've worked so hard and don't really want to eat junk food! Could this be an extinction burst? Any insight would be appreciated! <3
