So today is day 18 for me and i’m still not feeling any sort of magic. My energy is inconsistent, I’m still getting the afternoon slump, my clothes all fit the same, and overall I just thought I would feel a little better at this point. Im not coming from any chronic medical conditions, and I ate relatively healthy before starting this program but wanted to take that additional step toward healthy eating. My gym performance has also been the same. I also went to the doctor the other day (day 16) and had to weigh myself. I was extremely disappointed when I saw that I weighed the exact same at a previous appointment 3 months prior. During the time of that appointment I was consistently drinking soda, eating out multiple times a week, and drinking alcohol about twice a week. How can that be possible??? I eat three full meals a day and try to follow the meal template the best I can. Here’s a sample day of what I eat. Breakfast: coffee with collagen peptides and vanilla nut pods, frittata made with sweet potato, bacon, green onion, and kale. Lunch: left over chicken with tomato sauce on top, a side of cauliflower, and an apple. Dinner: red bell pepper stuffed with ground beef and seasoning, apple sauce, and green beans. I normally workout 4 days a week for about 45 minutes. I don’t normally eat before or after because it makes me feel nauseous. But could a pre/post workout snack be the only thing delaying my tiger blood? because i find that hard to believe! Any information would help!
Hello! This is my first time doing whole30. I went through the bloating, tired, cranky, and then saw some energy with better sleep. But this week I haven't felt great. I've been doing 3 personal training workouts a week which makes me incredibly sore. I also teach so I know that causes some stress. It's highly unmotivating seeing as that i'm already half way through. I've tried my best to not cheat but I might have unknowingly??. I'm getting worried and confused as to why i'm so tired/cranky/don't feel like i've lost any weight. I know that weight loss isn't the main focus but I thought going from drinking almost every night to nothing and totally changing my diet I would feel some pounds come off! Here's what I had today as an example: 7:30 breakfast: 2 egg cups, handful of sweet potato hash, half an avocado, half a grapefruit. coffee with nutpods 10:00 mid morning snack: banana or apple with almond butter 11:40 Lunch: leftovers from dinner or premade whole30 meal from Territory (similar to snap kitchen) examples: stir fry with cauliflower rice, spaghetti squash with ground turkey 3:00 Mid afternoon snack: epic meat stick, or pork and sage balls before I go workout. Was doing an apple with almond butter but tried to stop having fruit after lunch. 7:00 Dinner: burger with mayo, lettuce, sweet potatoes, avocado, and maybe one slice of bacon Is there anything that I can be doing differently to see the energy spark in the last 12 days? I would greatly appreciate any help!! I workout after I get done teaching. I do have a pre workout (promix) because of the high intensity of it all. Could just 10.5g be ruining my results? If it is I can stop drinking it! Please help make the tiger blood happen!! Thank you!!
This is my 4th (or maybe 5th) Whole 30 in 2 years. While the others have been during times when I've had a mostly healthy lifestyle (sticking to a mostly paleo diet (at least at home) and exercising regularly) before starting. This one, however, follows about 4 months of food and (lack of) exercise debauchery...just because #life. I knew it was exactly what I needed to reset my body (and my mind). Because my previous Whole 30's were so successful, I had high expectations. I've been very frustrated that I haven't been feeling the extreme positive results and NSV's this time that I have in the past. I started questioning whether I was "doing it wrong" and considered giving up...because, you know, my newfound love of good, craft IPA's was much more satisfying (see debauchery above) I've been reading the Whole 30 day-by-day and trying to stick with it. At any rate, the point of my post is to offer encouragement to others who are as frustrated as I was. Whether this is your first or your 5th+ Whole 30. Everything that the program says about everyone experiencing Tiger Blood differently and at different times as well as where you are coming from before starting your Whole 30 making a big difference is 100% true!!! Stick with it!!! 2 days ago I was considering giving up. Today, I'm considering extending for another 15 days (though I'm not gonna lie...I'd still kill for a good IPA LOL!).
