It got a little repetitive at a couple of points because I really enjoyed what I've been eating!!

Side note: some things aren't here, I drink water all day (a lot of the time infused with lemon and lime), and add Trader Joe's 21 seasoning salute, as well as chives, to nearly everything

Can't tell the portions from your descriptions, but assuming the amounts are following the meal template, this looks good overall -- except for the fruit snacking the last several days. If you're feeling the need to snack, it's usually an indication that you didn't eat enough at your previous meal. Try to adjust: by increasing what you're eating for breakfast, making sure you're getting enough healthy fats, etc. If you really like your fruits, trying having them with your breakfast.

 

Having just main meals is encouraged because it gets your body into the rhythm of having a bunch of different things to digest, and then digesting them all so you're empty for the next meal. Snacking disrupts that healthy rhythm.

 

If you absolutely need to snack, try to make them mini-meals with protein, fat, and veggies instead of fruits. Fruits jack up then crash your blood sugar, again disrupting the rhythm you're trying to establish with Whole30.

Hi Glenn! The reason for snacking is mainly because I eat breakfast at 8 and don't take lunch until 3 (sometimes 4) because of my schedule. Once my night classes are over, I'll be able to change this to be a little more fluid, but I eat lunch at 3 or 4 because I don't have time to have an actual meal before or during my 3.5 hour class. Leave work at 5, hit the road to get to class for 6, and don't get home until 10. Because of this, my dinner portions are very small so that I don't overeat before going to bed -- though, I am hungry when I get home (or else I wouldn't eat). I'm sure this is very, very wacky and disruptive to my system, but it's the only way I can really fit everything in.

 

I trust your input though and will try to make my "snack" a little something more substantial. Thank you for the advice!
