modernhippy Posted May 21, 2014 Share Posted May 21, 2014 Around day 15 I started feeling GREAT! Energy ramped way up around day 17. My clothes were fitting better, I felt great, and suddenly, like I had never started this Whole30 journey, I woke up bloated on day 20. It hasn't gone away. Bloated, gassy, stomach pain almost after everytime I eat. Admittedly I think I ate too many fruit and nuts on days 18-19 (I was working, running errands, busy, and out of groceries- so I relied on what was quick, easy, and available). Things I will admit- -I love fruit. So I have about 3 servings a day (one with each meal) -I have a long span of time between my lunch break and when dinner is finally ready, so I often end up eating nuts, or raw veggies with guac. -I only have 1 cup of coffee a day -I haven't been drinking as much water lately. I know it's probably not enough. Things I have considered- -Too many fruits and nuts? -Problem with nightshades? -Eggs? I eat 2-4 a day. Sample: Day 21 Breakfast- 1/4 of a quiche (eggs, sweet potato crust, ground turkey, rosemary). black coffee. Banana. Lunch- Leftover moroccan chicken (recipe from ISWF book), salad greens and raw veggies, avocado, avocado "ranch" dressing. (homemade, whole30 approved ingredients) Snack- raw almonds Dinner- "pizza spaghetti"- (spaghetti squash, ground turkey with italian seasoning, whole30 approved pepperoni, eggs as a binder, spaghetti sauce). Fruit bowl (1 banana, 1/2 cup blueberries) Day 22 Breakfast- 2 hardboiled eggs, 1/4 avocado, banana with almond butter. coffee black Lunch- Left over "pizza spaghetti". Small green apple Snack- Raw carrots and cucumber, guac. Raw almonds Dinner- Citrus chicken salad- (lemon pepper grilled chicken, greens, slices of orange and grapefruit, citrus dressing) Snack later- couple of oranges (this is unusual for me, but my bf was complaining about all these oranges we have that can't go to waste. weak excuse, I know) **Horrible stomach pain before afternoon snack, and after. Horrible pains after dinner for several hours. Day 23 (today) Breakfast- 3 hardboiled eggs with avocado. banana. almond butter. black coffee Lunch- chicken breast with seasoning (definitely some peppers- paprika, cayanne, chipotle), raw veggies and guac, small green apple. haven't had anything else today. Lunch was about 2 hours ago and I am miserable. I feel like I have eaten a pile of cookie dough and pizza, followed by a beer and hard cider. I have pain and tenderness in my abdomon, and severe bloating (like end of first trimester pregnant look) HELP? Things were going SO WELL, and now this change? At a point of wanting to quit if this is how I am going to feel Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
