purplepadres Posted January 8, 2014 Share Posted January 8, 2014 Hi All! I'm currently on day 10, and really haven't had too many problems adjusting to my Whole30. I was already eating pretty clean, so it was an easy adjustment. I'm having a little bit of "food fatigue" and need to change up my menu, variety seems to make this go more smoothly. The concern I have is that I may not be eating enough calories. Don't get me wrong, I'm not tracking, but I had been for about a year and a half before starting Whole30. I've got a good idea of how many calories are in the food I eat, and it seems that, although I leave a meal feeling satisfied (and seldom hungry between meals), I'm in the neighborhood of 1200-1500 calories a day. I am a 5'10" woman whose starting weight was 139. I work out 4-5 times a week (strength training with a moderate amount of cardio), so I really don't have any weight to lose. (I was previously netting about 2000 calories a day, and my BMR has been calculated at about 1550.) A sample meal for me is: 1 cup spaghetti squash, 3-4 chicken meatballs with marinara sauce, 1 c brussels sprouts and 1 c kale (sauteed in either ghee or coconut oil), perhaps some nuts or olives for some added fat. I'm definitely still finding my way as far as protein/fat/veggie ratios, so any help you could provide me to stem what seems like a couple pounds of weight loss (judging by my pants), would be a huge help!
