NoHoneyBooBoo Posted May 28, 2013 Share Posted May 28, 2013 Hi all, I've done quite a bit of long-term juice fasting (14-30 days) in the past, and always feel amazing after the first few days. I have more energy and strength as the days go on. The cravings, however, can get pretty bad. I'm now on day 16 of my first Whole30. Oddly, I have not had one single craving since starting this program (I'm assuming because being able to eat anything at all during a cleanse is such a novelty), BUT my legs have been weak, I've been fighting to get out of bed in the morning, and I'm starting to drag in the middle of the day. None of this is like me at all. Pre-Whole30 I was always bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at 5:30 a.m. I've upped my sweet potato and squash intake, but it hasn't helped much. Any other suggestion? For reference, here's what I've eaten the past two days: Yesterday: Breakfast: 3 scrambled eggs, half a sweet potato, half an avocado Lunch: beef and broccoli Dinner: grilled chicken, sauteed mixed greens, more watermelon than the law allows (it was a holiday and, for the record, I didn't even look twice at the homemade strawberry shortcake or the deep fried Oreos even the health nuts were raving about) Today: Breakfast: 3-egg, spinach and tomato fritatta, banana Lunch: spinach and artichoke salad, apple Dinner: salmon cakes, whole sweet potato Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Maybe tiger blood isn't in my future, but I'd like to at least go back to feeling normal. Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
