NicoleK Posted August 20, 2013 Share Posted August 20, 2013 This is my first whole 30 and I'm 2 weeks in. The transition was fairly easy for me... I had done some research on gluten free eating and eliminated breads and pastas about a year ago. With that being said, I was also able to find loop holes in gluten free eating, and was able to get my hands on lots of unhealthy gluten free food. I wasn't super strict with it, but I was aware of trigger foods that made me feel yucky (bloating, gassy, etc). I also had chronic heart burn which was non existent when I avoided such foods. What was appealing to me about Whole 30 was the impact on my relationship with food. I've always felt hungry... not satisfied. I was starting to wonder if maybe I didn't have an off switch when it came to hunger. Something peculiar happened today... I ate breakfast (3 eggs, half a turkey sausage, lots of spinach and peppers), for lunch I had chicken breast, a sweet potato and broccoli, and when super came around... I wasn't hungry. I've read that some people become 'repulsed' by certain foods and this point... but this was different. I made supper for my husband (non-compliant food and I wasn't tempted at all), and I made my lunch for tomorrow. I've read about the importance of eating 3 meals, is it ok to listen to my body if I'm not hungry? I know it sounds silly, even more so now that I've typed it all out. I'm just curious if there might be days where I don't need to eat as much. Yesterday I had a pretty intense work out and ate 3 meals (ate my 3rd meal about an hour and a half after my work out) and later that night I felt hungry so I had a half a turkey sausage, 1/4 c. egg whites and a few grapes. P.S. Don't mean to brag... but I've felt tiger blood pretty much since day 1. I feel amazing... but I've read so many posts on here about crashing, headaches, loss of energy. I've been a little worried about waking up one day and losing this 'high'. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
