  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. Looking for some help theorizing about why I go from zero to blood sugar crisis mode in the late afternoons. I've tried eating a bigger lunch, but after a sweet potato + chicken or tuna with mayo + broccoli (or some other version of a perfectly Whole30 lunch plate) between 11:30 and 1:00, I'm so full I don't even think about snacks or want food ... until I'm driving home at 4:30pm and feel a sudden blood sugar drop that makes it hard for me to even think straight, much less calmly get dinner on the table for everyone. Should I set a timer and force myself to eat a snack around 3:00 or 3:30, and if so, what should it be? Eating when I don't FEEL hungry seems silly, but clearly my body is in the process of GETTING hungry without sending my brain any signals. The crisis mode is awful and puts my willpower to scary daily tests.
  3. Hi all, So the past several days I'm just finding myself so hungry in the morning after breakfast. I usually eat breakfast around 8:30am. And then I feel starving at 11:30am. And yes, the kind where fish and broccoli sounds good. I've done pretty well with not snacking in the afternoon (which is actually my normal before the diet). The past few days I've had a hash of sweet potato, chorizo, kale, bell pepper, onion, zuchinni and yellow squash (delish btw). Maybe about a fist full of this hash. A few days I added a half an avo. Am I really just not eating enough? I think my body is also not used to me eating breakfast. I used to just eat a bagel after I got to work so now I'm really focused on eating down and being relaxed while eating before going to work (which I love this habit and hope it stays with me). Also worried my snacks aren't full enough of what I should be getting out of the snack. Morning snack usually is an apple, almond butter, and a mini beef stick if I'm really hungry. Any thoughts? I feel like I'm having fats but maybe not enough. Maybe the large portion to me isn't as large as I think it is? Maybe my body isn't used to eating breakfast? I really don't want to rely on having a cup of coffee to keep me full. Or maybe this is just all normal and my body just requires an extra mini meal! Any thoughts help! I'm learning what works for me :)
  4. On day 10 of perfect compliance, the timeline said the headaches should be over but mine are getting worse. Now, it's all day and so bad by the time I go to bed at night, I can't sleep, I'm getting only 2-3 hours of sleep when this happens (3-4 nights so far). I know it's due to hunger - and I'm reading that I shouldn't be snacking. I have a mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack of nuts and fruit or veggies. I can't eat as much as you recommend. I had stomach surgery, it helped me get some of the weight off but I didn't learn good eating habits so I'm trying this. The big problem with the surgery is, you can't eat much at a sitting, but it goes right through you and you're hungry an hour later. If I have to go with the mini meals, that's just triple the prep time for me. I work, so I have to bring lunch and snacks to work in the morning - after I cook and eat breakfast. I don't know what protein I can bring to work for between meals. I don't like hard boiled eggs and I only like shrimp with cocktail sauce. I haven't yet had time to prep a lot on Sunday to eat during the week. Yesterday was Mother's Day and I had 17 people for lunch (and managed to stay perfectly compliant while they had a Mexican fiesta!). By the time everyone left, I was entirely too tired to prep meals for the week. Please help - I don't know what to do about the hunger - I'm eating nuts because it's easy but I'm afraid it's going to inhibit my weight loss. Also, easy ideas for protein snacks would be really helpful. Thank you - Tricia
  5. I am finishing day 16, and rarely if ever (once or twice per week) do I feel hungry. In the past few days I've felt hungry probably every other morning, which I count as a good thing, because I am breaking a no-breakfast habit. I think that means that my hormones are resetting? My question is this: should I evaluate my meals and start cutting down meal sizes until I start to feel hungry around the next meal time? Right now I am eating in accordance with the template, but on the higher side (2 palms of protein, a LOT of veggies, a few servings of fruit per day). I sometimes feel stuffed after meals from all the veggies, because I hate wasting food, so I will eat past satiety to finish my cauliflower rice or pork. I also don't have consistent meal times for meal 2 or meal 3 since I squeeze "lunch" in around my work schedule (anywhere from 10:30 AM to 2:00 PM) and dinner is after I come home and have a minute to get it together (5:30 PM to 9:00 PM). Regardless of when I eat, I don't get hungry, though, and I feel like I'm forcing myself to eat out of habit or time rather than to nourish myself. I should add that I workout 5-7 times per week with a combo of running, weighted cardio, weight lifting and yoga/dynamic stretching for 45-90 min per session. I rarely manage to get a pre-workout snack in, but I have been packing Epic bars to eat immediately following workouts and that has seemed to help my recovery a bit, although my muscles do not seem to be recovering nearly as quickly as before I started. Thanks for any help! Sierra

    Heavy flow of period

    Hello friends, I am on day 16 of Whole30. Two days ago I got my period earlier (3-4 days) than anticipated. My flow has been so much heavier than usual. I even have some thick blood clumps that I usually don't get. There is definitely a change in hormones, that's obvious , but is this normal as this does not feel normal to me. Also my hunger has been crazy. Yesterday i ate breakfast at 8:30 and then again in two hours and again at noon feeling empty and hungry every time. My sleep has not been good either. I fall asleep but then I wake up , however in the morning I wake up fine with more energy than before Whole30. Could it be b/c of my heavy period? Any body knows what's going on? These past two days have been very trying for me. I am almost pulling the plug. A couple of my friends that have done Whole30 say that Whole30 actually regulated their periods .
