Primrose Posted April 21, 2014 Share Posted April 21, 2014 I'm on day 26 of my first Whole30 and am really struggling in the afternoons. I love the 3 meals and no snacking idea, and find that I do great in the morning. I eat 3 eggs and 2 c of cooked cabbage with 1 T coconut oil, and have no problems making it until lunch. For lunch I usually have a salad of 1-2 palms of meat (ground beef or turkey), occasionally a hard-boiled egg, 3 c of lettuce, 6-8 black olives, 1-2 T olive oil, and 1 T vinegar. I finish lunch off with 1/2 c of sweet potato with coconut oil or < 1 c of berries. Anyways, usually in 2 hours I'm hungry again. Steamed fish and veggies sound great! If I don't eat, I get irritable and ravenous and overstuff myself at dinner (on Whole30 compliant foods at least!). I want to try to go the 4-5 hours in the afternoon without snacking, but my body doesn't seem willing. I have done it some days of my Whole30, so I'm wondering if it might be hormone related. It's crazy. It's almost like I want to eat dinner a short while after lunch. I'm doing the Whole30 on the recommendation from my naturopath to bring down my a1c and LDL levels. Any ideas for how to feel in the afternoons like I do in the mornings???? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
