ellig Posted April 16, 2014 Share Posted April 16, 2014 Hi there! I'm on day 2 of my first Whole 30, and feeling like a fish out of water!! I'm no stranger to weighing / measuring food and meticulously counting calories, so this whole "Fill the plate up and eat a lot" is new to me. Yesterday I had two eggs and some sautÃ©ed kale / onions / tomatos for breakfast, was STARVING by lunch (maybe just psychosomatic?) and had a salad that must have weighed two pounds. Lots of good raw veggies but also a can of tuna, one hard boiled egg, half an avocado, a few olives, and a bit of homemade dressing. Now that I type it out I'm pretty sure I overdid lunch. I was just so darn hungry! Then for dinner my mom (bless her heart) was visiting and made a paleo friendly potroast with some veggies and sweet potatoes. Then this morning I had two eggs, bacon, and the kale mixture (but sautÃ©ed in bacon fat this time.) SO - I feel like I'm eating too much, but the whole 'no snacking' thing is messing with my head. It's like I'm afraid I'll be hungry so I eat too much at meals? I will say that both before lunch and before dinner I experienced hunger, which quite frankly is a sensation I haven't felt in a long time! :-) I know this sounds totally neurotic, but anyone have advice on portion sizing for someone that could stand to lose a few pounds? THANK YOU!!! Oh - so far so good! Feeling really good, excited to make some changes. I'm a total sugar addict, so this is a big step for me!!!! Bless you all!
