Afternoon crash

Recommended Posts

Have you seen the Whole30 timeline? Looks like you're right on schedule.  :) 

If you want to confirm that you're on the right path, post your food log since you started, including daily water consumption, nightly hours of sleep and any exercise you are doing. Folks here can give you feedback on possible tweaks.

Yes, typically the further away you were from eating Whole30 type food before you start, the harder the first few days of Whole30 eating can be.

Do you have a copy of the meal template?  For best results, compose all your meals to follow this template. It's hard to tell your portion sizes and whether you're getting enough fat.

How many eggs are you eating per serving?  When eggs are your only protein, the serving size is the number of eggs you can hold in one hand. For most folks, that's 3-4.


Confirm that your bacon is compliant: no sugar, sweeteners or other nasties.


Don't let fruit push vegetables off your plate at your meals. Make sure you're getting 1-3 cups of vegetables in per meal before adding fruit.  Get some carb-dense vegetables in there to help with your energy.


Try to get closer to 8 hours of sleep nightly.


The need to snack can be an indication that your earlier meals need to be bigger. Play with your protein, veg and fat portions at each meal until your meals satiate you for 4-5 hours.

If you are genuinely hungry in between meals (litmus test: you could eat something bland like steamed fish and broccoli), have a mini meal that includes at least a protein and fat. Nuts are a fat source on a Whole30.
