    Day 11 - Hungry

    I'm on day 11 of my whole30 and I try to follow the meal template pretty closely. Every meal I'll have a protein (generally 2-3 eggs or about a half cup of shredded chicken), 1-3 cups of mixed vegetables (i.e. broccoli, green beans, carrots, squash, etc.), and fats (either a handful of olives or a serving of guacamole). I snack only when necessary. I have 1-2 servings of fruit in a day at most - and usually with meals. I haven't been eating any nuts, dried fruit, or any kind of snack bars because I know that those are trigger foods for me. The first week or so, I felt decently satiated. But over the last couple days I've been feeling woozy and hungry only about 2-3 hours after meals even though I'm eating the same amount of food. This seems like a stark contrast to how sated I felt before. I feel like I could eat anything in front of me - I would definitely eat steamed broccoli and fish! I also feel full (almost painfully so) after meals, so I don't think I could eat more volume at meal times. Any tips or thoughts on what I could do to tweak my whole30?
  2. Hiya, I've been doing the Whole30 with my family for about 3 weeks now, although we had to restart a week in because of some butter in the soup my gran gave us. We've also just realised that we've been eating a small amount of sugar and sulfur dioxide in the dried cranberries we've been using occasionally for snacking. I know we should restart, but I'm struggling with hunger which I've felt since starting. I've been eating huge amounts, and as someone who started off pretty thin, I really can't afford to loose weight. I feel like there has to be an upper limit to the amount of protein I should eat? I have a full balanced meal for breakfast lunch and dinner, with a portion of fruit after every meal, and eat a few potatoes, a few extra boiled eggs and a handful of nuts around 3-4 times a day, plus sometimes an avocado/banana shake between my mini meals in an attempt to stay full. I feel like all I need is a big bowl of pasta, and after that accidental slip up too I don't know what to do! I also still feel tired throughout the day. Should I continue?
  3. Hi! My wife encouraged me to get on board with her on her second round of Whole30. She saw good results - weight loss, skin improvements, decrease in allergies, and more. I was very happy for her, so I started with her my first round as she eagerly went on to her second round. I post this because I'm a bit confused as to why I've been so hungry so often and seen so few results. I'm now on my second round through the Whole30 primarily because the food is just so amazing and my wife is sold on the whole thing! I've struggled with Pre-diabetes, High Blood pressure, High Cholesterol and that sort of thing for quite some time, as well as some kind of intestinal problem that we haven't been able to figure out. I finally managed to get most of that under better control after losing 40 lbs through diet and exercise. During the first Whole 30 I was always hungry - literally! These weren't just cravings or boredom - pain in my stomach! The only time I wasn't hungry was when I was eating. The food was amazing and I think there was only one recipe that we weren't keen on. The final week of the first round I added significantly more veggies and healthy fat and the hunger was less but I was still hungry a couple hours after each meal, but I felt so bloated having eaten so much! I did have some positive results after the first round - clothes felt better, slept better, less fogginess, no cravings for dairy to name a few. On the downside, I only lost 1lb, yes, only one! That was a huge let down for me after having lost so much just months earlier. I lost a little around the measurements as well but nothing to boast about - like 1/4 " and some were the same. It was a huge downer after reading about so many huge results from others. I know there may have been some muscle gain, but wow was I disappointed! My blood sugars had barely moved - almost the same as before I started. My intestinal issues had improved but I'm chalking that up to some probiotics and intestinal wall supplements I've been taking and cutting out pretty much all starchy carbs (potatoes, sweet potatoes, cucumber, and very few carrots, etc.), under doctor's recommendation. Now on my 2nd round through Whole30 on week 3 and I haven't been quite so hungry but when it hits, it hits hard! I thought, you know, give it a second chance because maybe my hormones are all out of wack and it's going to take way more time. I'm feeling that something is wrong because my wife is never hungry and I can hardly wait to get some food on my plate, sometimes I'm so hungry I eat way too fast and end up feeling super bloated! I'm noticing my blood sugars are very slowly coming down and my clothes are fitting looser. I am very consistent doing exercise as well, so I thought that might really help with the program, but I'm just feeling tired a lot of the time during the day. Pretty sure I've never experienced the "Oh! I've got so much energy!" thing feeling. Here's a sample day: Breakfast: 3-4 eggs fried in coconut oil, 1/2 an avocado, 1/2 a plate of raw veggies (jicama, carrots, celery, cabbage), romaine lettuce leaves, a mandarin and black coffee at the end Lunch: - about 2 cups of protein salad (tuna/chicken/pork) stuffed with veggies like peppers, celery, jalapeños, cabbage, onion and avocado mayo on lettuce leaves or cabbage, a sm. banana Dinner: Salmon fillet, 1/2 a plate of green beans or broccoli, good scoop of cauliflower mash, 4-6 large green olives, 1/2 cup berries with 2-3 Tbsp of coconut milk Water: usually 3-4 Liters Exercise 4-5 days/week: 10-15 min walking warm-up, 30 min weights, 60 min walking and/or 30 min run/spinning Thoughts?!
  4. Hi! I need some help! Any comments, advice, or suggestions would be very appreciated! I'm finding it difficult to stick with the meal timelines (food every 4-5 hours). I have been having 3 meals 1 snack, or 4 smaller meals, plus a small pre-workout and post-workout for days when I workout. I mostly do high-intensity interval training, but also I run or erg sometimes. Here is what I eat (roughly): Breakfast: 2 eggs + 1/2 cup while egg + a fist-size ish of leftover veggies (zucchini, mushroom, onion, red bell pepper, kale), a little bit of shredded chicken or turkey (leftover) Lunch: 1/4 sweet potato or potato + veggies would pile up my plate (kale, zucchini, mushroom, onion, red bell pepper, kale, asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli) + protein (2 palm size of ground beef or fish, or 1 chicken breast) + 1/2 avocado + 1 tsp olive oil + 2-3 pieces of either cashews or walnuts Snack: (1/4 sweet potato + a little bit of shredded chicken, or 1/2 can of tuna + 1/4 avocado) OR (1 apple gala + 1 tbsp almond butter + a few blueberries + 5-7 almonds/pecans/walnuts) OR (chia pudding with 1 tbsp chia, 2/3 cup of almond milk, and 5-7 almonds/pecans/walnuts, and 1/2 dates) Pre-WO: chicken and avocado as per template, 1/2 banana and 1/2 tbsp almond butter if it's a morning workout, or just almonds if I'm rushing Post-WO: compliant deli (a few slices) and 1/4 sweet potato Dinner: same as lunch.

    Chewing gum

    Has anyone found chewing gum has actually affected their whole30? My husband is the only one in the family who's not greeting any reduction in how hungry he is between meals but he won't stop chewing gum & I think that could be what's messing him up? We're on day 11 but no matter how much he eats at meals he still says he gets hungry in between. Any thoughts?

    cinco_mouser's log Apr29 - May31

    I'm starting this process, but unhappily so. I'm not joyfully walking toward this, but I AM committed to doing this thing. My selected date is 33 days rather than 30, because I like to start on Mondays and stop at the end of a thing (month). Today, drinking black coffee was easier than I expected, but I basically spent the entire day famished.'s 5pm and I've achieved a state of not hungry JUST NOW after eating 12oz of bacon. It's not like I wasn't eating, either, ya'll. It's not the end of the world, but man. I would love to NOT be starting for the next 32 days. Breakfast: poached eggs, fried sweet potatoes, coffee Pre-lunch: poached eggs, friend sweet potatoes Lunch: borscht with chicken OMG SO HUNGRY: borscht with chicken (two bowls!), and bacon. Like...a LOT of bacon. A package of bacon. Y'all. I was so hungry. Dinner: garlic rosemary chicken, sautéd kale
