I am on day 24 of my 1st Whole 30. I initially had some challenges with energy levels during the first half or so of the program. I go to crossfit 5x a week and I was definitely feeling like there was no gas in in the tank. At this point I am feeling GREAT in my workouts, and my performance and recovery has improved. However, I'm CONSTANTLY hungry. One of my goals with the program was to tackle snacking. It has always felt more mental than physical (oh look, it's 10:30, let's have some carbs, oh now it's 3:00, time for an apple!) and while I was able to abstain for the first week and a half or so, but not now. After I eat my meals, I just don't feel fully satisfied, but also can't bring myself to eat much more for a little while. After awhile I then need a snack. Is this typical? Typical day: M1: 1/4 frittata (the whole thing is 6 eggs, one sweet potato, one white potato, mushrooms, onion) Coffee, black M2: I portion canned tuna or 3 hard boiled eggs, made into a "Protein salad" with mayo, 1/2 avocado, roma tomato mixed and put over 2 cups mixed greens Snack: Hard boiled egg, or 1/2 to a full Lara Bar. Whichever I have on hand at the office Pre workout: some carrot sticks and 1/4 avocado or HB egg, sometimes a half a larabar Post WO: some avocado or a few bits of sweet potato, sometimes the other half of a larabar M3: Portion of fish (generally cod or salmon) or 4 eggs - with a veggie and a sauce of some kind I'm drinking herbal tea all afternoon and sipping black coffee throughout the morning on most days as well. Thanks!
