mercuryhime Posted May 16, 2014 Share Posted May 16, 2014 There's possibly and couple of issues, but here's the story. This is the 2nd Whole 30 I'm doing with my husband this year. I felt very healthy at the end of the last one so I thought we'd do it again a month and a half before our trip to Germany. We just finished week 2. Like last time, my muscles feel wimpier than when eating grains. I wasn't sure if I was actually just losing muscle mass or if I just didn't have the energy supply, but after I started grains and sugar again, my muscles felt fine almost right away, so it was probably an energy source thing. Is there a way to alleviate that feeling this time around? My husband is training for a marathon and muscle fatigue is an issue with him right now. He refuses to eat more carby veggies even though I'm repeatedly telling him this diet isn't about carb restriction. The next issue is kinda 2 issues. Last night, husband and I had an argument during dinner due to mutual irritability (we made up!). As a result, I had little appetite and didn't eat enough. This morning my muscles were wimpier than ever and my brain was feeling hazy. So I had an extra portion of fruit (a whole banana and a handful of strawberries) with my breakfast of eggs and sweet potato in hopes of getting some quick energy. Then, still feeling tired, I had a huge piece of salmon (possibly 3-4 palms worth) along with lots of salad greens and sweet potato for lunch. Is it bad that I had so much protein all at once? I don't usually have so many carby veggies in a day either, but I don't feel overly full, just satiated. Stll feel kinda hazy, but muscles are doing a little better. Any thoughts on my situation are appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
