    Avid snacker...

    Hey everybody.. day 4 here, feeling all around fine besides occasional light headache and wanting to go to bed earlier. My problem is SNACKING. I have been snacking on compliant cashews, pistachios, larabars, beef sticks. This is usually between breakfast and lunch since eggs and fruit dont usually hold me over till lunch. How bad is it for me to snack if they are compliant? Ive always been a huge snacker, so I am wondering if its best just to tough it out between meals.. thoughts?
  2. Hi all, So the past several days I'm just finding myself so hungry in the morning after breakfast. I usually eat breakfast around 8:30am. And then I feel starving at 11:30am. And yes, the kind where fish and broccoli sounds good. I've done pretty well with not snacking in the afternoon (which is actually my normal before the diet). The past few days I've had a hash of sweet potato, chorizo, kale, bell pepper, onion, zuchinni and yellow squash (delish btw). Maybe about a fist full of this hash. A few days I added a half an avo. Am I really just not eating enough? I think my body is also not used to me eating breakfast. I used to just eat a bagel after I got to work so now I'm really focused on eating down and being relaxed while eating before going to work (which I love this habit and hope it stays with me). Also worried my snacks aren't full enough of what I should be getting out of the snack. Morning snack usually is an apple, almond butter, and a mini beef stick if I'm really hungry. Any thoughts? I feel like I'm having fats but maybe not enough. Maybe the large portion to me isn't as large as I think it is? Maybe my body isn't used to eating breakfast? I really don't want to rely on having a cup of coffee to keep me full. Or maybe this is just all normal and my body just requires an extra mini meal! Any thoughts help! I'm learning what works for me :)
  3. I'm a vegetarian I go to the gym 6 times a week I know the whole 30 program is anti-protein powders, snacking, and dependence on fruits. But as a vegetarian who goes to the gym a lot, these help me get through the day without energy fatigue, one of my snacks is a banana with almond butter/cashew butter or unsweetened protein powder that I blend with bananas and unsweetened almond milk. I was wondering if anyone here was a vegetarian and an athlete and how they managed to get around this.
  4. I am on day 18 of my first whole30, and I have the overwhelming feeling that I am making no progress in terms of weightloss. Obviously I want to get the myriad of benefits from the program, but one of my biggest motivators and something I was looking forward to was the weight loss I assumed would happen. I have been eating a lot of fruit (at almost every meal and for snacks) and nuts throughout the day. I am scared that all of this fruit sugar is inhibiting my weight loss. Also for reference, before starting the program I consumed a fairly healthy diet with nutrient rich veggies and lean meats already, but with more treats, added sugar, and dairy. I do feel that I have cut out a lot of the bad things from my diet, so it is frustrating that I am not seeing results. I also think it might just take longer for my body to adjust and the weight loss might be delayed and happen at the end... when does most of the weight loss happen for women??
  5. I am on day 25 of Whole30, but I have never felt the tiger blood or lightness I was expecting to feel. I think it is associated with the overconsumption of nuts and other snacky foods. I have always had the need to snack on something, especially in the weekend, when the kitchen is just a few steps away. My diet on Whole30 is similar to my previous diet as I was Paleo; the reason I attempted a Whole30 was to get rid of my urge to snack on something, but clearly, I have failed due to my lack of willpower. I feel guilty. Should I start over?

    Am I eating enough?

    I am on Day 10 of Whole 30 and I want to know if I am eating the right amount. I know that snacking isn't really compliant but I do need to have some kind of "pre-workout" so my workouts don't suffer. I workout approximately 5-6 times a week and it consists of rigorous HIIT/Lifting. I average losing 900-ish calories at each session. I do give myself one or two rest days per week. Below is a "normal" meal plan: 1. Breakfast: Med size sweet potato (topped with a tablespoon of almond butter) with 1 egg/1 egg white with spinach and four strawberries or 1/4 cup of blueberries 2. Lunch: Caulifower rice with coconut chicken/veggies and 1 small cutie 3. Snack: 5-6 Nuts and a couple of spoons of chia seed pudding 4. Dinner: Large salad plate with tons of veggies, avocado, beef tips and an egg 5. 1 date I guess I'm confused how much I can snack before working out?
  7. Hello everyone, I'm on Day 8 and have had a smooth sailing up until a few days ago. I haven't experienced the "kill all the things" phase and haven't had an issue with cravings. However, over the last 3-4 days, I've struggled with being hungry constantly, lack of bowel movements (when I do go, it's non-relieving), and tossing and turning throughout the night. A couple days ago, I woke up at 2am to a growing stomach. I'm eating Whole30 meals, cooking with oils or ghee, and have focused on eating mostly protein and fat sources. If I do have fruit or potatoes, it's either when I know I have a busy day or before a workout. Due to having more time, I've increased the frequency and intensity of my workouts which MIGHT explain some of the hunger but it still doesn't seem right. This morning, I did a workout from 530-6a, about an hour later I had a serving of W30 egg frittata AND a chicken sausage (from Trader Joes). 2 hours later I was starving. Not expecting to be hungry so soon, I had an RX bar which satisfied my hunger a bit. 2 hours later I had my lunch which was a hefty serving of W30 shepherd's pie (with sweet potato, not cauliflower mash). That kept me filled for 3 hours and then I was starving again. This is a bit frustrating as I do usually get full when I'm done eating. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for the help! -April

    Halted progress during period

    So I’m on day 25 of my first W30 and on probably the second to last day of my period. I feel like my progress mentally (and physically) is going backwards. I ate pretty healthy before whole 30 so I didn’t experience the awful carb flu or any other bad symptoms at the beginning (or I just didn’t due to other reasons). I was seriously loving life. ZERO cravings for sugar or carbs, high energy, no snacking between meals, only 1-2 servings of fruit a day, etc. however after starting my period on day 20 it’s like I have been backsliding. Snacking on nuts and fruit between meals, 3 servings of fruit a day, and overall decreased energy. I also noticed I’ve stopped having NSVs. Could this all be because of my period? Has anyone else experienced this? I am still following meal template. Here’s an example of what I ate today: bfast: 3 eggs, half an avocado, half a sautéed pepper, 1/2 cup blueberries lunch: butter lettuce salad with grilled chicken, 2 tbsp sunflower seeds, tomato, cucumber, kalamata olives, and olive oil dinner: chicken apple sausage cooked in ghee with asparagus i also snacked on sunflower seeds, mango, and more blueberries. I just feel helpless to my sugar cravings and appetite which I didn’t feel at all in days 1-19. Feeling very opposite of “food freedom” right now
  9. I'm on day 12 of my Whole30 and am doing a good job with compliant meals, but I'm worried that I'm messing something up when I have an afternoon snack or after dinner snack. My afternoon snack is usually between 3pm and 4pm and consists of an apple with almond butter, veggies with sweet potato hummus, or a few olives. My after dinner snack is usually between 9pm and 12am and consists of a piece of fruit or a handful of mixed nuts (cashews and almonds) depending on whether I'm craving sweet or salty. I don't have both of these snacks everyday, but often enough that I'm starting to worry that I'm not following the rules properly since I recall that I should just have 3 meals, period.
