nicaboosh Posted November 5, 2013 Share Posted November 5, 2013 Hi Everyone, I'm not sure if this qualifies as a female-only topic, but since it's kind of embarrassing I thought I'd share here. I've done the Whole30 on a couple of occasions, and the one thing that always makes me second guess the effectiveness of this plan on my body is the fat problem. It might just be my body or it might be that I am eating the wrong things, but I seem to have issues digesting the excess fat. I will spare you the details, but let's just say things feel off for me in the number-two-department around Week 3. It's just not normal, not bad, but not normal. From what I've read in the forums, it seems like most people tend to cling to a certain food group in the Whole30 and over-eat in that arena (excess protein, mainly). For me, I love the fats...I could live off of coconut-anything and avocados. A normal Whole30 day would be eggs scrambled in coconut oil or organic lard with a bunch of veggies, with half an avocado and something crunchy (cucumbers, nuts, or honeydew melon, etc). Lunch is usually a big salad, with the rest of the avocado and olive oil, with chicken grilled on a George Foreman. Dinners vary, but I love to make Thai curries, and I cook everything in coconut oil. I also take a fish oil supplement and eat fish 2x per week. Is this my problem? Research praises good fats as these untapped resources of wonderment, but perhaps I am just overdoing it? I thought I was doing a pretty good job of balancing everything, but without fail, by Week 3, things start getting funky in my belly again and I run to the nearest sprouted grain english muffin. Anyone have any advice? None of my friends or family are into this sort of thing, which is why I recently joined the forum. Thanks! Link to comment
