cass Posted November 3, 2013 Share Posted November 3, 2013 I started the Whole30 because for years, I've struggled with near-constant constipation and acne. Doctors haven't helped, so I'm trying this. I'm a marathon runner, and I ate healthy pre-Whole30 -- lots of veggies, some healthy fats, few processed foods, but obviously, I ate grains, dairy and legumes. I've been on the Whole30 for 12 days and nothing has changed. I haven't had any of the negative side effects the book talks about -- cravings, headaches, fatigue, grumpiness, etc. -- and I'm not feeling better, either. Here's a typical day from this week: Breakfast: egg casserole (piece probably equivalent to 2-3 eggs, with spaghetti squash, spinach, and broccoli), Wholly Guacamole 100-calorie pack (easier to transport than 1/2 an avocado), and either a mix of coconut and raisins or a Larabar. Snack: carrots and the coconut/raisins or Larabar (whichever I didn't have for breakfast) Lunch: Leftovers from previous night's dinner Dinner: One of the ground meat stir-fry type recipes from It Starts With Food, with a side of another veggie (like broccoli) and a sweet potato or squash This week, I've run 4-8 miles a day, after work. (I started the Whole30 the day after my last marathon, thinking that the reduced exercise would make this easier.) I have been bad about eating the pre-workout meal, and post-workout and dinner are the same. Am I doing something wrong? Am I crazy to think that I am doing something wrong because I haven't had negative side effects? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
