Ankinha Posted July 10, 2014 Share Posted July 10, 2014 Hello fellow Whole30 community, I am a little bit unsure about that fat portions I need to eat, even after reading the book/looking at the meal template. So here are the last meals I've eaten, just to give you an idea. All my veggies are normally oven roasted in about 1.5 table spoons of coconut oil or pan fried in olive oil. Day 1 B'fast: 2 eggs fried in olive oil, 1 portobello mushroom, some spinach, sliced carrot, 1/2 avocado Lunch: handful of rocket, 1 apple chopped, 1/2 beet, a few hazelnuts, smoked salmon, olive oil Dinner: 2 palms full of roast chicken, steamed broccoli, roasted carrots + butternut squash Day 2 B'fast: 1-2 palms full of roast chicken, left over roaster carrots/squash, 1 fried courgette, 1/2 bell pepper, 1/2 avocado Lunch: tin of sardines, left over roast carrots/squash, 1 courgette, 1 pepper and handful of olives Dinner: chicken curry (home made with left over chicken, curry spices, apple and sultanas, tin tomatos) plus 2 cups of home made ratatouille Day 3 B'fast: last night's chicken curry with ratatouille and some roasted sweet potatoes plus olives Lunch: Same as for breakfast plus olives Dinner: roasted sweet potato with beef, coconut milk, green beans, onions and peppers Day 4 B'fast: 2 scrambled eggs (in coconut oil, with 1 slice of compliant prosciutto ham), handful of roasted sweet potatoes/carrots, 2 big spoons full of ratatouille and 1/2 avocado. Lunch: last night's dinner, with some olives Dinner: ratatouille and chicken curry leftovers with 1/2 avocado Day 5 B'fast: 2 scrambled eggs (in coconut oil, with 1 slice of compliant prosciutto ham), 2 cups full of roasted butternut squash, courgettes and onions, 1/2 avocado During the day I mainly drink water (in which I have some fruit to get it nicely flavored), about 2.5 litres a day. I haven't re-started exercise this week, but will do so as of Monday. QUESTION: am I eating enough fat and am I doing this Whole30 plan right? I am surely not supposed to eat all the fat that is listed on there? I am astonished that I am not hungry in between meals. I have breakfast around 9am'ish and would then have lunch between 1-1.30pm and dinner between 7.30-8pm. Normally I would be hungry in between meals etc. but I now manage not to snack!! I was on WeightWatchers before (hated it) and did calorie counting for the last year. Doing the Whole30 is so liberating as there is no counting, weighing etc. Many thanks for your comments!
