senews Posted April 25, 2014 Share Posted April 25, 2014 Hi all, I've been eating Whole 30/Whole 9 for about a year now. Right now, I'm following the AIP (using a meal plan from Balanced Bites' Practical Paleo book) to try to help with some thyroid issues. My problem is that I am so, so, so tired all the time. I know the hypothyroidism is a contributor, but I feel ilke it has been especially bad lately. I think I'm eating enough protein and fat, but I'm not sure about carbs. Below is what I've eaten the past few days: Breakfast: 1 grilled steak with onions, cooked in 1 T coconut oil 1 C (before cooking) diced butternut squash, also cooked in coconut oil Lunch: 4 scallops (1/2 lb) cooked in 1 T coconut oil, with a coconut amino-orange glaze Mixed green salad with some raw asparagus and 1/4 granny smith apple, dressed with an orange-EVOO-ACV-mustard dressing Dinner: Lamb dolmas, made with 1/4 lb ground lamb and some cauliflower, coconut oil "Avo-ziki" (made with 1/2 avocado, some grated cucumber, dill, lemon, 1 T EVOO) Wilted spinach (1/2 bag?) 3 medjool dates Breakfast: Leftover lamb dolmas (1/4 lb meat) Mixed green salad with some raw asparagus and 1/4 granny smith apple, dressed with an orange-EVOO-ACV-mustard dressing 1 C homemade broth Lunch: Fist-sized portion roasted turkey leg (rubbed with coconut oil and spices) 1 C (before cooking) butternut squash (also cooked in about 1 T coconut oil) Afternoon snack (don't judge!) 2 slices roast beef lunch meat 1 pre-made mini pack of Wholly Guacamole Dinner: 4 oz. smoked salmon 1/2 sweet potato, shredded and cooked in several T of ghee 1/2 avocado Breakfast: 1/4 lb ground lamb, sauteed with onions in about a tablespoon coconut oil 1/3 sweet potato, shredded and cooked in 2-ish tablespoons EVOO Spinach salad (half a bag) with EVOO and ACV 1 C homemade broth Lunch: Fist-sized portion of roasted turkey leg (rubbed with coconut oil and spices) Asparagus 1/2 granny smith apple Small portion of left-over canned salmon (1/4 C?) 1/4 avocado Dinner: Mustard-glazed chicken thighs (2) 1 C (before cooking) diced butternut squash, cooked in 1T ghee I have had to cut back on aerobic activities, and I am usually dead by 2:00 or so. I just want to make sure I'm eating the right proportions of everything! Thanks in advance, Sarah Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
