  1. Hi All, I'm on day 8 of my Whole30, my husband and I are doing it together. We've been having some issues of late and I am looking for some help... we are gassy all the time, and I mean ALL the time. Neither of us have had what you would call "normal" bowel movements in the past 2 days either. Nothing we are cooking sounds good. I tried making my own ranch dressing for salads- hated it. I've not been able to swallow sweet potatoes without gagging. Literally just give up halfway through a meal because I can't get it down. I'm really really tired. We've been sleeping well, probably getting about 8 hours a night and falling asleep and waking up easily. But during the day we are SO tired. I find my mind wondering and I can't focus. (I was sugar conscious before Whole30 and don't find myself craving sweets too much other than the occasional piece of fruit or larabar if I am hungry) I'm achy, the tension in my shoulders and neck have been off the charts since starting the whole30 I've been keeping a food journal about what I eat (not how much) and a typical day is as follows: Breakfast 2 hardboiled eggs 1/2 chicken sausage or 2 scrambled eggs salsa avacado with tea or coffee+coconut milk Lunch (dinner leftovers) chicken roasted broccoli roasted sweet potatoes bananna Dinner lean burger + bacon avacado roasted brussle sprouts roasted potatoes Snacks only happen once in awhile and usually consist of apple and almonds hard boiled egg and raspberries larabar Any ideas what could be wrong? Are we doing something wrong? Any advice would be much appreciated!
  2. Hey guys! First post on here, but I've been lurking since I started my Whole30. Today is day 9. I haven't been tempted by non-compliant foods, I've been dutifully cooking ahead of time so I have food to eat at work, I've been blowing through coconut oil, my acne's disappearing, my figure's probably benefiting. But I'm not hungry. On days 1 and 2, I had a decent amount to eat, and really enjoyed what I was eating. On day 3, I had a hard time eating dinner, even though it tasted fine. On day 4 I struggled to eat breakfast and lunch, but scarfed down sweet potato hash browns and eggs for dinner. From day 5 to today, I've barely wanted to eat, and it feels like I barely CAN eat. For instance, I made it through breakfast fine today (meatballs with sauce and roasted delicata squash), and started lunch eagerly (roasted chicken drumstick and thigh and roasted veggies), but halfway through hit a wall and it wound up taking me about an hour total to get through most of it. It worries me because I know I'm not getting enough to eat. (Not tracking calories, since it's against the Whole30 way, but I've got a good feeling.) I don't want to keep going through this, where I know in my head that I have to eat, but my body doesn't want to and feels almost sick halfway through meals. I did feel that the sweet potato hash browns bumped up my appetite and allowed me to eat a good amount of food in one sitting (also they were delicious). The same occurred with a batch of sweet potato fries I made and had with burgers. Should I sweet potatoes constantly? That would be tasty, but I feel like there's more to this issue...
  3. Hi All! I am new to Whole30. I am really trying hard to get the PWO meal in... but I find that when I eat it, I am not hungry for dinner. I workout from 3-430ish each day. I like to eat dinner around 7. Am I cutting it too close? Should I miss the PWO and just wait until dinner? Having dinner earlier means that I would not eat with my family. Help!
  4. hi - quick question - i'm working toward 3 meals per day but so far (day 4) i've only succeeded in getting in 2. i'm not snacking and not hungry. my first meal is around 10:30 or 11 and the second is around 5 or six. i am not willing to forego my first thing in the morning coffee, at least not yet. i'm a little person and i feel like i'm eating like a horse at my two meals. a third meal feel inconceivable. just keep going? thoughts?
  5. OK, so I did a search on this topic as it is only day two for me and I am a total newbie, but didn't see exactly my situation. I started the Whole30 yesterday - yeah! And, weird... just not hungry! Before I started, I did eat a lot of carbs (in general, I didn't actually binge on anything, no ice cream, pizza and beer the night before I started ) just did eat a lot of carbs in my "old" way of eating. I am 140 pounds overweight, but very active ( I have a job where I am on my feet and moving at least 4-5 hours a day). But, I wasn't hungry at all yesterday, forced myself to eat all three meals according to the meal planning guide (tons of veggies, good fats and 4-5 ounces of protein at all three meals), and still, not hungry. I had a cup of coffee black yesterday, but only drank about 6 ounces, cut the coffee this morning, and still feel like eating is a forced march. Weird, because I LOVE to cook, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to eat, and have been making really delicious dishes for each meal - thanks Whole30 recipes and Well Fed 1 & 2. I am working in the kitchen right now to get us prepped for our work week (today is my Sunday) and the smells are amazing, I am having a great time rocking to the music, and none of the great food looks even remotely appealing. Weirdest of all, absolutely NOT craving carbs - I am 48 (female) - whacked hormones? And, of course, sleep was not happening last night, and terrible tummy upset (not during the day, just when I went to sleep - about two hours after eating). Sorry for the long post, just wanted to give anyone with insight all the details. I will keep forcing myself to eat, but each meal is getting increasingly more difficult. Thanks for any help or advice you have to give!
  6. Hi all! I am on Day 3 of my first Whole30 and absolutely not hungry and feel like I've been run over by a bus and can't move. So far I have been eating way more than I normally would because I'm worried of getting hungry. This is what I have eaten today: Day 1: Brunch: Spinach frittata with avocado and a side of fruit Snack: Larabar (I know I am not supposed to but I was travelling) Supper: Zoodles, shrimp and romesco sauce. Then I was starving an hour later, so I had a few veggies, and almond butter. Day 2: Breakfast: Spinach frittata with avocado and a side of fruit Lunch: Protein salad traditional with salmon, apple and almond butter. (was not overly hungry) Supper: Zoodles, shrimp and romesco sauce and half avocado. Day 3: Brakfast: Two sweet potato slices with 1 mashed avocado, 1 slice of prosciutto and two eggs, with a side of sautéed spinach and mushrooms and a few grapes. (not really hungry for lunch but ate anyways) Lunch: Mexi Tuna in Romaine leaves (3 leaves) and two dates. Came home and felt super low blood sugar and felt like I was going to pass out so I had a handful of raisins while making dinner, but I am not even hungry. Help! Is this normal? Thanks in advance everyone!

    Food Repulsion

    I am having a hard time with getting certain foods down. And it changes daily. One day the thought or site of any veggies makes me sick, the next day its a protein source. Ughhhhhh. I am also not very hungry at times. I am not sure if I am really craving breads, pastas, and sugars or if its behavioral????? But all I think is I just want one bowl of pasta for the day and I'll be fine. Anyone else have these issues?
  8. I did my first Whole 30ish August 2012. I dont know how long i stayed on it but it was a few months. I lost about 30 lbs and then adopted paleo lifestyle. I have since gained 20 lbs back and decided to start this year off with AIP version. The first 2 weeks were really easy-No detox or withdrawals. Then it seemed a switch flipped. Food no longer sounds good to me and that is a HUGE problem. I am a big foodie and love cooking and trying new things. I've been tracking my food in MyFitness Pal and I'm only eating about 1,000-1,200 calories a day. I know that is not enough, but I'm not hungry and I'm having to make myself eat. I lost 6 lbs my first 2 weeks then gained 1 on my third week. I don't really feel any differently other than I don't want to eat. Has anyone else had this problem and did you find a way to break through? It's been going on about 10 days now. sample meals Day 1 2-homemade sausage patty from deer meat 1 cup sauteed kale 1 TBSP Sauerkraut Tuna in Olive Oil Salad with olives 1/2 avocodo Burger with 1 cup of steamed broccoli snacks, 1 apple, 1 banana, 2Tbsp coconut butter Day 2 1/4 baked sweet potato 1 cup sauteed spinach 2 slices bacon 1/2 chicken breast 1 cup cabbage 4 oz Roast 1/2 cup carrots1/2 cup sauteed asparagus snacks, 1 apple, 1 banana, 2Tbsp coconut butter, chicken tender wrapped in bacon Exercise: Started CF in January, so very scaled down version 3x a week Run 2-3 miles 3x a week
  9. Help...I find my self starving lately but nothing tastes good except cold things or fruit. I'm having to force feed myself meals and want to gag. Has anyone else had this happen? I'm on Day 16, can't fail now...need food ideas. What things are good to eat cold? Besides carrots, bell peppers, are there any other veggies good raw? Thank you!

    Just not hungry

    I'm on day 16. In the beginning I felt awful, but had few cravings which was a HUGE surprise for me. After the first few days I started to feel much better and had an appetite that seemed healthy. Over the last week or so I felt like my calories might not be as high as they should be despite eating enough food to keep me satiated, so I started tracking. I'm only consuming 800-900 a day, BUT I'M NOT HUNGRY!! The thought of forcing myself to eat makes me a little ill, but I do believe I'm consuming too little. I'm fairly active since I have a 2 year old and 3 year old, but I just don't seem to get hungry. I've had this issue for a long time. My sister-in-law thinks she's jealous, but how do you KNOW when to eat when you don't get that signal?! Now, not only do I not get the signal, but I actually feel full. Any ideas?
