We started this diet because my youngest son (14) has had stomach pains for about a year and a half now, and the doctors and allergists have not been able to track down a cause or provide a solution. We have been doing the Whole30 (as a family) for 33 days now, and are seeing no results in reduced stomach pains. I understand that some people have to go 45-60 days before they see results. But, I am wondering, at what point do we say, okay, no results are coming from this â€” time to go back to a normal diet. I mean, if we never see results, why keep torturing ourselves? Any suggestions?
Hi everyone! I just recently started the Whole30, and I read through a lot of stuff to avoid the common mistakes, but I still think I might be doing something wrong. I add enough fat and food into my diet, I think, because I can easily not feel hungry for 4-5 hours (cooking fat + avocado or olives). For some reason, I still feel really lightheaded. I'm tired (which I expected), but when I get up I feel a little bit dizzy for a few seconds. I don't have any headaches, so maybe this is my version of it? Other than what I just mentioned, I'm not feeling any of the "hangover" symptoms. It just feels like my stomach doesn't want food, but my body is asking for it. When I workout, I can't bring myself to eat pre- or post-workout meals because I'm just so not hungry. I started Whole30 to help recover from Binge Eating Disorder, and had hoped to change my relationship with food and feel hungry again for the first time in years. I'm really not sure what to do. I've read through some forums that say not being hungry in the beginning is actually not normal. Do I stuff myself anyways with 3 meals + 2 mini meals a day if my stomach doesn't want it? It's what I've been doing since my freshman year of high school with carbs and sugar anyways. Is the lightheadedness normal? I'm really lost at what I should do! I'm 17 years old, by the way, if that is important. Thank you in advance for your response!!
My 17 yr. old underwent ACL and meniscus rebuild on June 19th. She has been very supportive of my W30 that I completed and have continued... Day 45. My daughter is naturally thin and tall. Losing weight is not the reason for her to join the W30... her goal is to clear up her skin and to supplement her ACL/Meniscus rehab with good nutrition so she can pursue her soccer career as intended. She is very picky healthy eater... meat was never important to her... now she can not get enough! Veggies are limited to asparagus, broccoli, cucumber, carrots, lettuce and she just tried zucchini and was ok with it. Fruit - grapes, strawberries, apples and bananas seem to be it... I need help with side items and some workout foods for her... so she will not keep this attitude of "I am only doing this for 30 days...". We all know that as she progresses in her W30 she will feel the benefits outweigh the cravings she still has but I need to get her hooked on some staple foods that she can look forward to... homemade jerky? Is this true? smoothies that would help boost her post workouts... sorry for just rambling... Truly want to help her without sacrificing my yummy leaner track... Help needed
