laurenthewannabecavewoman Posted May 22, 2014 Share Posted May 22, 2014 Hi All Day 4 here, so far so good...except this dull back pain!! I've read this can be attributed to a low carb diet, which I know Whole30 is, but I'm totally confused. The first 3 days I had a wonderful headache, which I attributed to my lack of coffee (the headache has since subsided). On Day 3, a fun dull ache in my back started. This has gotten worse. I sit at a desk for 8 hours a day and try to move as frequently as possible but nothing seems to give me relief. I'm not a big fan of medicine so I don't want to start popping pain pills (just yet). Maybe I'm not eating enough or I'm not eating the right foods? This is what I've eaten so far... Day 1 (Monday): breakfast- 3/4c sweet potato hash 2 eggs 1c blueberries lunch - field greens 5 grilled shrimp tessemae's dressing 1/4c cashews dinner - sausage peppers homemade sriracha snack - watermelon Day 2 (Tuesday): breakfast- 3/4c sweet potato hash 2 eggs 1c blueberries lunch - field greens 5 grilled shrimp tessemae's dressing 1/4c cashews dinner - peppers chicken salsa snack - cantaloupe Day 3 (Wednesday) breakfast - pepper egg (whole egg cooked in a pepper) 1/2c sweet potato hash watermelon blueberries slice applegate turkey lunch - grilled chicken pickles blueberries carrot snack - cashews dinner - rib eye, grilled asparagus snack - watermelon Day 4 (today) breakfast - frittata of egg, spinach, prosciutto snack - raspberries blueberries I don't know if I'm eating enough...at the end of the night I want to snack. I was a huge pretzel eater and I just crave the texture of a pretzel. I'm being careful not to OD on fruit but I don't know what more to do. My fiancÃ© hasn't experienced the backache and we eat the same things. Any ideas? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
