mercuryhime Posted January 8, 2014 Share Posted January 8, 2014 Hi all, I'm at the end of my first week on this program. I've felt pretty good so far. I never experienced any fuzziness, weakness or moodiness that others report. The only issue I'm having right now is with all the protein I have to eat 3 times a day. Just so that you better understand where I'm coming from, I'll go into a little detail about my past eating habits. I ate vegetarian about 75% of the time and pescatarian the other 25%. I ate grain based foods sparingly. Most of my food had come in the form of veggies, eggs, legumes and fruit with the occasion grains and fish. For this Whole30, I am still eschewing land animals so I find myself eating a lot of fish and eggs. I am clearly not used to such a huge amount of animal based protein in my diet. I am experiencing discomfort, bordering on pain after meals since day 3. I believe it is the high amount of protein coupled with the fact that I am eating more than ever. I used to have smaller meals with a snack or 2 throughout the day. While the rest of my body feels fine, and I don't even get my afternoon shakiness anymore, my stomach is just not enjoying this process. I am not snacking at all (though I keep dreaming about dark chocolate squares). Thanks for any insight! EDIT: My husband, who is doing this with me, is reporting muscle cramps. Any ideas?
