    Day#17: Occasional lightheadedness, but only rarely. Staying hydrated in this heat. Think food I'm eating is balanced, but intend to read whole30 literature more about that. Traveling has not been difficult, with fruit & vegetable available & reading labels. Ravenous hunger is gone. Don't miss ice cream, peanut butter, bread, or cheese like I thought I would. Catiously optimistic about this being my permanent lifestyle, but garbage I've eaten before this convinces me I must. I am a doctor who sadly thought I earned junk food.
  2. I'm on day 19 and a couple of days ago I started feeling occasional mild nausea and lightheadedness. I'm drinking 70-90 oz of water a day, salting my food, and adding fat to all my meals. It doesn't happen at any predictable time (like when I'm hungry, or only after eating). Otherwise I am feeling good, I have more energy during the day, have had no stomach issues or bloating since starting the whole30 (which I used to get on a semi-regular basis). I'm exclusively nursing my baby, so eating 4-5x a day (3-4 meals a snack). Heres what I've had so far today: Day 19 20oz water M1: chicken sausage, broccoli with ghee, 1/2 avocado, 12oz water Coffee & 20oz water M2: chicken sausage, 2 eggs, salad, evoo, balsamic, sweet potato, baba ganoush 20oz water Coconut water - 11 oz Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions on what to do differently?

    Uncomfortable Feeling

    Hi, I am on day 10 and for the past three days, in the am into early afternoon I feel very dizzy/lightheaded and feel "out of it" which is uncomfortable. Is this normal
  4. Hi - I am currently on day 24 and have been experiencing bouts of hunger and being lightheaded for the past two days. I should preface this by saying I ran my first 10k on Monday after following the Hal Higdon training program - I felt amazing during the run! Huge non-scale victory! After the first week I haven't needed morning snacks, so it was a bit of a surprise when I couldn't manage to make it from breakfast to lunch without eating the past two days. I was borderline nauseous and have gotten lightheaded upon standing. Here are my meals since Monday: Monday M1: 2 eggs, 1 cup sweet potato hash, 1/2 cup spinach, handful of mushrooms, and 1/2 of an avocado. 1 cup of coffee with 1-2 Tbsp of coconut milk Pre Race: None (with the exception of 6am Orange Theory workouts - all training has been w/o a pre wo meal) Post Race: Banana, Sunflower Butter, RxBar M2: 1/4 lb of ground turkey, 1 cup of pasta sauce from the book, and 2 cups of spaghetti squash M3: 1/4 lb of ground turkey, 1 cup of pasta sauce from the book, and 2 cups of spaghetti squash Tuesday M1: 2 eggs, 1 cup sweet potato hash, 1/2 cup spinach, handful of mushrooms, and 1/2 of an avocado. 1 cup of coffee with 1-2 Tbsp of coconut milk Snack: RxBar M2: 1/4 lb of ground turkey, 1 cup of pasta sauce from the book, and 2 cups of spaghetti squash M3: Coconut Chicken from the book over cauliflower rice - the chicken was palm sized & the "rice" was essentially 1/2 of a head of cauliflower Wednesday M1: 2 eggs, 1 cup sweet potato hash, 1/2 cup spinach, handful of mushrooms, and 1/2 of an avocado. 1 cup of coffee with 1-2 Tbsp of coconut milk Snack: RxBar M2: Coconut Chicken from the book over cauliflower rice - the chicken was palm sized & the "rice" was essentially 1/2 of a head of cauliflower M3: Coconut Chicken from the book over cauliflower rice - the chicken was palm sized & the "rice" was essentially 1/2 of a head of cauliflower This is honestly the "worst" I have felt on W30 - after week one I have been loving life! I am trying to figure out if this is food related or run related. Post W30 I plan to continue to eat this way, with a few "off plan" foods sprinkled in - I also plan to run a 1/2 marathon. Any suggestions on how to avoid this going forward would be great! Thanks!
  5. I am on day 7 of whole 30 and have really struggled since day 5 with light headedness, foggy-ness and hard to focus, some dizziness and fatigue. The first five days I don't believe I ate enough food and still exercised as normal (nearly fainted on day 5 after a hard workout) so day 6 and day 7 I was very conscious about eating MUCH more. I also started adding salt to foods on day 6 because I read on another forum that it could help the fog. I'm adding in more fats too and made sure to buy fattier meats to have this week (ground beef, steak) instead of chicken breast like last week. I'm also eating 2-3 fruits a day. I still do not see improvements and am VERY concerned. Trying to live a normal life while feeling like I'm going to faint is extremely alarming. I have been on my period this past week so I'm wondering if I'm iron deficient (my iron level usually comes back as normal but on the lower end). I have always been a very healthy eater and been very active (with the exception of bingeing over the holidays right before starting whole 30). However, I always started my morning with oatmeal or wheat cereal. I believe that has higher iron contents than the eggs, turkey bacon and potato I have for breakfast now. I'm thinking of seeing a doctor to test my iron and blood sugar because I can't continue like this. Anyone have any suggestions or ideas as to what may be going on? How else can I add iron into my diet? Should I take iron supplements or a women's multivitamin?
