TalMay Posted May 9, 2014 Share Posted May 9, 2014 I am on day 19 of the whole30. I honestly feel like I am ready to adopt the whole9 life following my whole30. I have been satisfied after and between every meal, my skin appears brighter and I have had little to no real cravings to speak of. I have yet to notice any increase in energy. I will say that on day 8 I was extremely tired and slept over 12 hours, falling asleep on my couch right after dinner. I have not been even close to as tired as I was during that time but notice I still struggle to get moving and out of bed in the mornings. I accept that I may not fully experience 'tiger blood' but wonder if anyone else ever feels somewhat sluggish this far into the whole30. Examples of typical meals are: Breakfast: Sweet potato hash with eggs, turkey sausage and apple or 4 eggs, shrimp, kale and strawberries. ( was worried I may not be adding enough fat and today started adding 2oz of coconut milk and a tsp. of ghee to my coffee) Lunch: Meatloaf with ground beef, kale, carrots and riced cauliflower; half a sweet potato, broccoli and strawberries. Pre-workout: tuna, 1/4 avacodo PWO-nuts and strawberries or 1/4 sweet potato (sometimes I forget to pack extra strawberries or sweet potato and just have nuts) Dinner: ground chicken stuffed bell peppers (totaling the size of one full pepper over stuffed with meat), some type of green vegetable and sweet potato. This has been what my meals typically looked like this week. A friend of mine, who is fully paleo, suggested I wasn't eating enough which may be why I am so tired. she also suggested I add more fat which is why I added it to my coffee. Just looking for some feedback or confirmation that I am following the plan accurately. Also, I was wondering how many sweet potatoes is too much? I have been adding them in more because last week I didn't think I was getting enough carbs but don't want to over do it. I tend to have 1 or 2 at the most a day.
