Hi, Maria! I'm a little concerned that you may not be eating enough. I know sometimes people come to Whole30 from a background of counting calories and limiting their intake, but here, we want you to focus on eating plenty of healthy, nourishing food to ensure that your body has all the energy and nutrients it needs to function at its best. 


Please review the meal template and try to have three meals a day that fit the template. A serving of eggs is as many whole eggs as you can hold in your hand -- for most people that's 3-4 eggs. If you are hungry between meals and need to eat something, you'll have the best results if you have a mini meal of protein, fat, and vegetables. When you have fruit, you should have it with a meal, not on its own (this is addressed in this discussion, or google Whole30 fruit for more information).


(And just to be clear -- I'm not saying you've messed up your Whole30, just that I think you could make a few tweaks which might prevent you dealing with hunger or lack of energy down the road. Two days in, you're probably still in the new and exciting phase of this, but in a week or two, if you aren't getting enough food, it may catch up to you.)

Hi Shannon,


Thanks for the info, especially the egg portions. I definitely didn't feel like I ate enough the first day. I'm trying to adjust to whole30, I just need some time to get it right. I will be making my meals bigger to stop snacking!
