Izzy00 Posted May 8, 2014 Share Posted May 8, 2014 Guys, i finished my wole30 on 15 April, I continued after that with paleo eating (didnt do reintro except for gluten because i was happy with not eating sugar, legumes dairy etc again-- due to intolerance ) I had a few chocolate eggs at easter and have had One cheat meal since 15/4 and one mocha w soy milk about 10 days ago. I crossfit 5 times a week (i do okay at crossfit and feel great when im working out) on my days off i try walk for a little bit. In the last two weeks.. i have been - tired at 3pm - extremely emotional, almost depressed id say. My emotions are up and down - sleeping funny, bad nightmares, wake up randomly at 4am and cant sleep, then sleep for an hour before i need to get up and feel super tired etc - my stomach is more bloated and while i haven't weighed so cant tell if i have gained weight or not, i am certain i have.. My measurements are slightly more around my tummy etc My ass has definitely gained some extra padding... - I am sometimes completely put off by food and other times starving like i havent eaten all day. I have been compliant even when on paleo, i am "whole30" . I am at a point where i am fed up of feeling this way yet eating clean.. I eat the right amount i think, according to whats recommended. I snack before and after WOD. I eat healthy fats with my meals. The only thing i can be critical off is fruit. I eat a banana in the morning with my breakfast and most likely an orange after dinner. sometimes when i am starving before a WOD i will have another piece of fruit. The reason i started the whole30 is that i suspected i had a gluten intolerance but wanted to be sure. I was always lactose intolerant. and relied on sugar way too much for energy. so i wanted to kick those habits. BUT i wanted to lean up. I am 142pounds (roughly) and 5'4. I have a curvy body naturally (hourglass i guess you would call it) but i wanted to lean up on my tummy, upper abs and wanted to lose a little bit of my boobs (i know sounds crazy but they are F so i can afford to lose a cup or two). While after my first Whole30 i lost some cms off my waist, hips tummy ass. I dont think i was able to keep it that way and just a week or two of paleo eating with a few treats here and there, i expanded. I am now at the point where I am not sure what to do.. I have had my thyroid tested and no issues there. I am not overly stressed. My work can be full on but i have a good attitude to leaving it behind in the office (im Australian hehehe) i rarely work on weekends, unless its absolutely necessary. I am not stressed out. but this frustration is consuming me... Any advice..? I am sorry for the long post. i am hoping someone out there can have some tips, hints, has this happened to anyone else? I am nearly ready to give up and go back to having a chai latte when i please... hanging by a thread... thanks all. Much appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
