CMEXLR8's Whole30 log


Recommended Posts

I started on September 18th but did not realize I could log my days here. Oh well.


Yesterday was tough. I thinking but hoping not that it had to do with what I ate for meal 1. I chopped up some onions and sweet potatoes and cooked in a skillet with ghee. I ate that and eggs and it was awesome. As the day went on, I was ravenous. I ate about a bucket's worth of spring mix salad with grilled chicken, tomatoes and olive oil vinegar dressing(also some macadamia nuts mixed in). I ended up eating more salad and chicken mid afternoon. I later ate the rest of the sweet potatoes and some home made italian sausage. I never did slip or cheat, but it was real hard not to go bonkers and raid the fridge and pantry. I am wondering if the higher carb content of the sweet potatoes triggered all the cravings and I was mistaking them for hunger. I am a seriously carb addicted person, so it is a possibility.


Any thoughts?


Today is going great though.


Meal 1:

3 Born free eggs scrambled with ghee with tomatoes, red onions and garlic sauteed in ghee

I would first wonder if your breakfast was big enough? Did you have at least 1-2 cups of vegetables? (You could also up this to 2-3 cups.) Was the number of eggs equal to the number you can hold in your hand? Did you have something to drink with breakfast?


Also, keep hydrated during the day. Aim for drinking water, at least half your body weight in ounces, daily.

Ok, have not posted in a few days. Still doing well. I upped breakfast protein to three eggs with spinach, onion, tomato and garlic cooked in gheee. Very good with Frank's RedHot sauce. 


I have noticed I get hungry earlier when my vegetables consist mainly of salad for any given meal. Not surprising really. I have been adding onion, tomato and sometimes cucumber. I am going to try adding mushroom, fresh bell pepper to see if it helps it stay with me longer.


I am pretty active so I think that has something to do with it. I may need more protein. I work out most days with a crossfit style workout, I walk 2-3 times a day for 30 minutes or so and lots of times ride my bike at lunch to the store or just cruise around. What's the recommendation for more active people?

Do you have the meal template?


The recommendations for pre/postWO are on the bottom.

You could probably manage 4 eggs plus fat in your breakfast! A bigger breakfast will help you feel more satisfied throughout the day.

Try eating more substantial vegies over salads - you need an awful lot of leaves to fill you up. Perhaps have a few leaves and then go for sweet potato/pumpkin/carrot/beetroot, capsicums, tomatoes, cucumber etc.
