I am on day 17 of my whole30. My problem is that I have absolutely no desire to eat protein. I obviously do eat it, eggs are my best meal. However, I feel as though I am struggling with some runs and workouts. I have been having 1-2 snacks between meals (this is partly due to my work schedule. Today, I took a closer look at the meal template so I can try to do a better job of following that. My problem is how to eat more protein? It doesn't matter how hungry I am, it sounds like the worst thing to eat and then I just don't want to eat anything. Tonight, I am currently sitting with a bowl of protein salad in front of me. I cut the recipe in 1/2, so I have only 1 serving in front of me and it looks like so much. I don't even know how I would eat it all. Meals today: 3am (I work 12hr overnights): chicken sausage, sauerkraut, green beans, banana 8am (after work, I was not going to eat because I was going to bed, but was starving and knew I had to or else my sleep would suffer): 3 eggs, 1.5 oz chorizo pre workout: few bites of deli turkey 40min run (4.5 miles) <---- this actually felt good today, but my long run on Sunday left me feeling out of it and low energy post workout: 1/2 chicken breast, 3-4 carrots my supper now: tuna protein salad (whole30 recipe) with celery and apple mixed in, roasted butternut squash Thanks for any and all input.
