    Plethora of Problems

    Hi there, Unfortunately, I'm having a whole host of problems, and could use some help deciphering the causes. Firstly, whenever I start a healthy regimen, I always experience constipation. In this case, it's accompanied with a round, painfully distended, bloated stomach. I'm resisting weighing myself every day because I feel so uncomfortably fat! On top of that, I am super ridiculously tired, hungry all day at work, and really moody. I'm posting about this on the women's forum because, after a 6 mth hiatus, I also just got back on the pill (which I'd previously been on for many years- mostly for hormone control- I'm on my third week back). Trying to figure out which symptoms pertain to what...I am definitely not feeling any "tiger blood" on this Whole 30 (I was on a month with cheats and started strictly April 1). Wondering especially if the hunger is coming from the birth control and the bloating is due to FODMAP intolerance.. I don't know what else it could be. Sample Day: 9am- coffee, chia seed pudding made with coconut milk, 6 almonds, berries, cinnamon OR quiche made with sweet potato crust, chicken sausage, onion, pepper, spinach 10:30am- orange 12pm- salad with homemade mustard dressing, pepper, cucumber, tomato, 4-5oz chicken OR dinner leftovers 1pm- apple 3pm- 12-15 almonds 7pm- turkey burger, sweet potato with onion and artichoke, roasted Brussels sprouts and carrots OR salmon with garlic cauliflower rice, roasted broccoli late night- sometimes another piece of fruit (trying to stop this behavior), black decaf tea Please help if you are able! Thanks, Lauren
  2. Hey Everyone! So, I'm currently on my 4th round of Whole60. This is the fourth time I've done the program since 9/2013. I consider myself pretty well versed in the program. I've pretty much studied and memorized the rules and everything and follow the program well. I'm even mentoring some friends who are doing the program with me on a facebook group! Each of my Whole30's have been magnificent, tiger blood and all. However, this round has been quite different than any other Whole30 and I don't know why. -Day 4, I had tiger blood and felt amazing! Since then, I haven't really had the same "tiger blood" feeling. -For the last 5 or so days, I've felt tired upon waking. I'm getting 7.5-8 hours of sleep a night, as usual. I'm eating my meals as I should, following the meal planning template for protein, veggies, fat and some nuts/fruits. Again, no different than I have done in my prior Whole30's. -Emotionally, I kind of feel out of whack. Today, I woke up full of energy. By the time I arrived at work, I felt super tired and sad for no reason at all. I've been scatter brained like crazy and my moods have been a little different than normal. Nothing stressful is going on in my life right now, so I don't know what that's about either. After reading some prior forum posts the best thing I can think of, is I need more starchy veggies. Typically, I eat a fair amount of sweet potatoes. This time, I've only had them maybe 2-3 times, and regular potatoes another 2-3 times. Whereas in the past, I may have a serving every other day. I'm not super active, I work at a desk all day. I haven't been working out, although I will be starting to add some cardio in soon (nothing crazy, just moderate to see if my mood improves.) So, what gives? Any ideas as to what is causing this? I'm baffled because this hasn't happen to me before on a Whole30 and don't know what's causing it. One thing I will add that is positive and a NEW thing that hasn't happen in my prior whole30's. I have had literally NO cravings for ANYTHING off plan the entire time. Zilch. Don't know why that is either. HELP, please! Thanks!! =D
