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
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.
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 :)
