Liz G Posted September 21, 2014 Share Posted September 21, 2014 Good Morning! I am on Day 21 and am feeling like I must be doing something wrong. I am eating three meals a day and not getting hungry in between so that is definitely a great benefit of this plan, and enough to keep me in a Whole 9 plan interminably. However, my acne is not improving, my clothes are not fitting better and I don't seem to be losing fat the way I hoped. I haven't been on a scale but I don't think there would be a change. Also, the boundless energy has not arrived yet but I am being patient about that! Right now I just feel like I should at least be feeling a LITTLE thinner. I am working out 5-6 days a week and getting as much sleep as I can (but I am not sleeping well right now). A typical day of food looks like this: Breakfast: 2 eggs, 2 strips bacon or homemade sausage, 2 roasted carrots (or a banana) Lunch: protein (leftovers from whatever I had for dinner), root vegetable, piece of fruit Dinner: protein (fish, beef, or pork), greens, root vegetable (potatoes, rutabaga, carrots, etc.) I pretty much follow that formula for meals every day, eating a palm sized portion of meat and however much vegetables it takes to fill me up! Is this food too heavy? Should I eat more salads or just fewer carbs in general? Any encouragement would help. I'm starting to feel a little hopeless. Thanks!
