Hi everyone - I'm on day 20 of my second Whole30, and have noticed that in the past few days I'm drinking upwards of 100 ounces of water. And that's a low estimate, not including what I drink during my workout. Not sure this is related to the Whole30, haven't increased my exercise volume or anything, and of course I'm not drinking alcohol so I shouldn't be extremely dehydrated. Has this happened to anyone else? Any idea what's going on here? It's free, so I don't really mind, it's just curious.
I am rocking Day-13 on my W30 now. It's almost half-over and I'm feeling FANTASTIC...with one exception. I feel dehydrated all the time. My mouth is dry, my lips are chapped, my throat's rough and I'm thirsty constantly. The symptoms are worse than what happens during my average, drying Cleveland winters too. This is all despite the fact that I'm drinking anywhere from 4-6 of my 24 oz cups of water a day. I really feel like I'm just peeing it all out or sweating it out during workouts and not holding on to any of it. My boyfriend (who is also on the plan, but a week behind me) suggested that maybe I'm not getting enough sodium in my diet to help me "hold on" to the water. Any thoughts? On top of drinking all that...my food log looks something like this too... Breakfast: Sweet potatoes and ham cubes "hashed" with two scrambled eggs mixed in Whole tomato, sliced 1 apple 1 cup of coffee with coconut milk Lunch: Large Salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, lettuce and balsamic/olive oil with a sprinkle of dried seasonings 1 cup of home-made chicken soup chock full of veggies 3 "deviled eggs" made with guacamole and egg yoke instead of mayo Dinner: Flank steak with a balsamic marinade Grilled red cabbage with some olive oil and pink salt Swiss Chard with (sugarless) jowel bacon and apples (with a touch of apple cider vinegar for kick) Help!
