  1. Hi ! I'm on my day 18 and I find extremely hard to wake up in the mornings. I have always had a sound sleep and although I love sleeping and have never been an 'early bird', from 7 days to now I have to snooze the alarm at least 5 times ! And then feel groggy the whole day through. Is this normal ? Will this get better ? I follow the whole30 rules without exception although I have been eating more fruit now than I did before.
  2. Hi. I started the #januarywhole30 on the 1st and was really motivated and excited. I was also tempted to use surgery on the 11th as an excuse to quit or cave but i did not. I read that the opiods and NSAIDs could be problematic so I'm finally done with those. I also switched to the AIP w30 two days ago. So losing the eggs has helped already. But holy crap i have been lethargic as hell! I'm going into day 23. Just wondering how much of a wrench surgery can throw into my w30 game? Because while I'm reading DaybyDay and keeping up with my FB group....i feel left out, or like I'm not doing it right....or something. I've done w30 several times before, never finished, but i had super energy by like the 5th day of cutting out all the crap. I am healthy overall, trying to take into account the recovery process, and also trying to get some perspective. Considering making it a w60 just to allow recovery and AIP to work itself out....but holy crap man. I have zero energy to get up off the couch. Thanks for listening. I'm sure i am being ridiculous and impatient but wanted to connect with someone who may have experienced something similar. Much love, Jackie
  3. 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!!
  4. This is my first Whole30 (and I am loving it!). Day 18 for me, and I am noticeably sleeping better. I used to be a terrible sleeper (probably due to too much wine before bed, let's be honest, and a lack of a before bed routine). I used to only remember dreaming maybe once or twice every one to two months. I am now dreaming almost every night, which I have read is a sign of getting into deeper sleep. My energy is eventually fine an hour or two after waking up, but when I wake up I AM SO TIRED. Like not sure how I will be able to get out of bed, exhausted. I am getting a solid 6-8 hours of sleep every night, probably averaging around 7 most nights. I usually fall asleep around midnight and wake up 7/7:30am. I was hoping I would be waking up with some energy, but it almost feels like I am hungover (without the alcohol of course) some mornings, at least when I initially wake. I guess I am confused as to why I am sleeping better, or seem to be based on how frequently I am dreaming and not tossing/turning/waking up in the middle of the night, but feeling so exhausted in the mornings... am I maybe making up for years of crap sleep? Is that a thing? Wondering if this can be explained/if others have experienced this/if I will eventually start waking up with more energy (I hope so!).
  5. Hello, This is the first time I've posted. Didn't want to but I really want this to work and I'm befuddled as to what is happening. I'm hoping someone may be able to give me some guidance or suggestions. I'm on day 22 and my head is still foggy, I'm tired, my skin is feeling itchy and dry and having the closest to a breakout in months and the bags under my eyes and dropped to new depths. I'm still feeling weaker than I did before I started the program. Yesterday I was about to rip a new one for anyone who dared look at me the wrong way. I thought this phase would be well and truly over. My friend, who said she felt amazing after a couple of weeks, is a bit confused too. A sample of a typical day's menu: Breakfast- coffee with cashew milk, ghee and coconut oil frittata with veggies, avocado and smoked salmon if I have them to hand Lunch- Baked potato - either sweet or white - tuna mayonnaise, lettuce, beetroot Supper- Whatever the family wants but a bit changed so I can eat it e.g. bolognese with zucchini spaghetti and veg. Chicken and roast potatoes etc... Before bed I have what we lovingly describe in our house as my disgusting drink - maca, cacao and spirulina mixed with water. I just drink kombucha, water and coffee (one or two cups daily). I stopped drinking kombucha a couple of days ago as my friend thought it could be the sugar that is causing issues. I use a lot of ghee and I'm wondering if maybe I'm making it wrong but I sieve it well using 2 pieces of kitchen paper and the ghee is completely clear once drained. If anyone thinks they know what I'm doing wrong or have any suggestions or tips I really would love to hear from you. Thanks so much, Helen
  6. I just joined this group because the comments I read in other posts were so helpful and encouraging. This is my first a Whole 30 and I am on Day 19. The last few days I wake up still tired and my head feels cloudy. Any thoughts?
  7. Hello. This is my first time doing Whole30. I have fibromyalgia and a gluten allergy. I am on Day 9. ALWAYS when I eat I get incredibly cranky, dizzy, and tired to the point of not being able to stand up. Since starting this diet ALL of those problems have gone away. I’ve had so much energy, I don’t get dizzy and cranky when I eat, and I haven’t taken any involuntary naps after eating. Until today. It’s come back and I’m looking for advice as I’m scared, because I was so relived everything was going well. For context, I haven’t slipped or cheated. Last night I ate out for the first time, I had unseasoned boiled chicken and green beans and broccoli at Applebee’s thought. Today my menstraul cycle started. And what I just ate was chili lime chicken breast Cobb salad recipe from the Whole30 instagram. 20 minutes after eating I got extremely dizzy and cranky. I got so tired I couldn’t stand. I had to lay down and legitimately fought to stay conscious and couldn’t. This hasn’t happened since I started the diet and I desperately don’t want it to start again because it’s scary. If anyone has been through this or has any idea what’s happening to me, I’d really appreciate the input. I was really happy being healthy for once. Thanks
