frankie Posted May 29, 2013 Share Posted May 29, 2013 Hello, I'm on day 24 (of probably a Whole60 since my family wants to start one now too), and one problem I can't seem to shake for more than a couple days is that I keep getting hungry. Actually hungry, not I just feel like eating because I'm bored hungry. I'm eating about 5 oz. of meat and about a cup of vegetables at each meal. Is this enough? I don't really exercise (though I am starting a martial arts class so that'll change), so I don't feel like I need an abundance of calories, but about an hour or two after breakfast I'm starving and have to have a snack (either a few nuts or a piece of fruit), and mid-late afternoon I'm hungry again and and feel about-to-fall-asleep-at-my-desk-exhausted from like 2-4, then I'm fine. The last several days I've felt exhausted from like 2-9pm though when I finally just go to bed! My sleep isn't off so I don't think that's it. I'm not feeling satisfied by my lunch (like my stomach starts growling while I'm eating and it doesn't stop for a half hour lol- I'm feeding you, stop growling at me!), so I guess I need to start by adding in there, but what can I add in? More vegetables? I don't like having nuts and fruit as snacks, since nuts bother me if I eat very many and fruit is just sooo sweet and I don't want to just rely on carbs continually for energy. Am I waiting too long between meals? Am I not getting enough or too much carbs? Not enough food? Breakfast at 5 is typically chicken, maybe 3/4 cup veggies, and a sweet potato. Lunch at noon is fish with 1-1.5 cups of vegetables. Supper at 6 varies, but some sort of meat and more veggies. All my vegetables are cooked in coconut oil, sometimes olive oil. Fruit is usually blueberries or strawberries, maybe an apple. Nuts are almonds or pecans, sometimes cashews. ~Frankie Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
