Hi and thank you for popping in to help!! I'm stumped. I have 4 rounds under my belt and leading a group now through the September Whole30 and have hit an interesting problem. One of my little birds is having NO side effects. Background - Male, 6"3', 330ish lbs, coming off a lifetime of standard american diet and fad/yoyo dieting. He is amazing, dedicated, willing to try new foods, and has truly given himself to the process. We are on Day 6 and while the rest of us TRUDGE through the day, he's noted that his energy is the same as ever, though his bathroom problems have started clearing up. I've reviewed his food journal and everything seems spot on, I noted to him to eat a little more healthy fats since they seem to be lacking and to drink more water, but other than that, he is 100% a model student. The good progressions seem to be coming, just not not the grogginess/fogginess/sleepiness/stabbiness... Why is it that he feels so good?? Not that I want him to feel bad, but you know what I mean. He is concerned he's not doing something right because he's not having the same tiredness and crankiness etc as the rest of us are reporting. This is the first male I've guided, is it different for the boys with the hormone fluctuations or is he just one of the lucky ones who feels human while detoxing the first week?? Any help or guidance that can be provided would be super helpful. I'd LOVE to be an official coach someday, so I'm trying to make each group a learning experience. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
Hey all! I'm exited about this journey. I love all the enthusiasm from the folks in the group. 5th day in, so far so good (ish). Only a few side effects (light headedness, insomnia, some fatigue) have cropped up, but I can push through those. Good luck everyone!
mistymath posted a topic in Troubleshooting your Whole30I've been waiting for the other shoe to drop. I'm on day 6 and am actually feeling great. I was a total carb- and sugarholic before, and I didn't really watch what I ate at all during the month of December. Should I expect that the big detox crash I hear everyone talk about is coming? Or should I just be happy that I'm apparently one of those people who doesn't have that side effect? I just feel like everyone I've heard talk about Whole 30 had an issue with this, so I sort of want to be prepared if it's going to hit me really hard around day 10 (or whenever). I also want to be sure that I'm doing this the right way. Here's a sampling of what I'm eating (yesterday and today): Tuesday meal 1: Sweet potatoes and onion hash, cooked in ghee and seasoned with salt and pepper, with Aidell's chicken and apple sausage and wilted mustard greens; black coffee Tuesday meal 2: Large salad with a variety of veggies and half an avocado and brined chicken breast from the slow cooker (dressed lightly with EVOO); mandarin orange; coconut cream pie Larabar Tuesday snack (I was starving by the time we got home after work, and dinner was a good hour away): Banana Tuesday meal 3: Tuna steak, roasted squash and onions, steamed green beans Wednesday meal 1: Two scrambled eggs, half a mandarin orange, half a cup of grapes; coffee with ghee, coconut milk and a little bit of cinnamon and unsweetened cocoa Wednesday meal 2: Small (maybe 4-6 oz.) chicken breast, green beans with raw cashews, roasted mixed veggies (squash, onions, brussels sprouts, eggplant), mandarin orange, coconut cream pie Larabar Also drinking lots of water. ETA: Everything mentioned above is either steamed or cooked in ghee, EVOO or coconut oil. Any feedback is appreciated!
I am beginning my Whole30 in a matter of days but am taking a necessary psychiatric prescription medication that I have already gained about 20 pounds on since February. The main issues I am experiencing in relation to this medication are an increased appetite and occasionally intense sweet cravings. Does anyone have similar experience with this type of problem? I am looking for advice on how to prevent and/or manage intense food cravings and hunger during my Whole30.
