Hi there everyone, I'm writing to ask about your experiences with Whole30 if you didn't stick to big meals (i.e., following all the rules but not all the recommendations). I'm at the end of day 3, right now, and I feel like I can manage Whole30 as long as I can graze throughout the day and eat fruit as much as I like (probably five+ servings a day). Questions: have you done Whole30 this way? And if so, how did you feel about your overall results? I'm not capable of eating big meals (I get full too soon- I'm fairly petite) but I really don't get the concept of satiety that lasts for hours. I get full, then hungry rather quickly. A bit about me: My regular diet is pretty typical for Southern California: mostly vegetarian with some chicken and fish. I do eat a lot of carbs, but don't drink alcohol, I avoid fried foods, msg, processed foods & snacks. I'm saying this to give you an idea of which things are and are not big sacrifices for me. I'd love to hear from other people who started in a similar position to me. I understand that Whole30's aim is to help people change their hormones in a way that would give them more of a sense of fullness. I'm open to the idea that I may be able to eat larger meals with bigger gaps as the month goes on... but right now that sacrifice is too great ob tip of everything else. I had a migraine in each of these first three days ( for which I took triptan medicine) so struggle of this experience has been compounded. Thanks for reading. I look forward to hearing from you!
Hi all, I'm on day 4 and have a full blown migraine. I've been waking up with a headache daily but it normally goes away after breakfast. I've been drinking plenty of water today and had 4 aleeve and it's still going. Today I've also been really emotional and crying over work drama. I've been feeling fine physically otherwise. Background on what I've been eating: breakfast: homemade bacon, spinach, tomato quiche with sliced potato crust. Matcha with compliant almond milk, collagen and probiotic lunch: salad with grilled or roasted chicken, beets, sometimes sweet potato, cabbage, cucumber, carrots, artichoke heart, nuts and balsamic vinegar. La Croix snack: carrots or fruit with nuts, maybe a chomps meat stick. half a GT's kombucha dinner: steak with asparagus, cauliflower rice or grass fed preservative free beef hot dogs with sauerkraut and sauteed veggies. dessert (on the last 2 days): sometimes a sweet potato with cinnamon or strawberries with cashew cream (soaked cashews whipped in the blender). I'm not the best about spacing my meals out evenly and eat when I have time between work, tying to fit in a yoga class and my commute. Sometimes I don't have breakfast until I've been up a couple hours or snack and have dinner late. Thanks in advance for the advice!
