Carmohr Posted January 15, 2014 Share Posted January 15, 2014 Hello, I am wondering if you think it's necessary to eat red meat while on the Whole30? I eat chicken, pork, fish, eggs, and nuts. This is coming off of being a vegetarian for 30 years - I just can't bring myself to eat red meat. I am on day 20 of my Whole30 and am extremely low energy - I am normally a very high energy person. My energy has been lower for two weeks now. I eat plenty of healthy fats and plenty of carbohydrates in the form of sweet potatoes and other veggies and fruits. And I've been eating plenty in general (not weighing myself, but can tell I haven't lost any weight at all). Acid reflux symptoms have improved, which was my primary motivation in doing this, but I'm pretty discouraged by how I feel otherwise at the moment. I have yet to have days where I feel better on Whole30 than I did before it. I am not negative on the program - I see what it does for others - but personally disappointed in some aspects although thankful acid reflux seems to be improving (my biggest concern!). I just wondered if you need to eat red meat to sustain energy on this? I've been eating plenty of the ones I listed. Thank you for your thoughts, Caryn Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
