MrsV Posted January 3, 2015 Share Posted January 3, 2015 I have successfully completed one entire Whole30 in March. I did 2 weeks in June and 3 in September. I needed fertility interventions to get pregnant with my first two children, but my body "corrected" itself (Or Whole30 did, rather!) and I was surprised to find out in November that I am pregnant with my third. I rationally know there is NOTHING healthier than Whole30 eating, but the nay-sayers are getting to me. I am almost 13 weeks. I have been tracking my calories so that I can keep an eye on my protein intake - keeping it under the 20% number. But I am finding that I am eating to fullness (and if I eat too much in a meal, I become HORRIBLY nauseated about an hour after eating) but still only hitting about 1,000 calories consumed during the day. Is there a safe way to continue to do Whole30 but make sure that my body is getting enough calories to support me and growing a human?? I have already lost 2 lbs and I am only on day 3. I can't tell you how many sidelong glances I've gotten when I've said I'm doing a Whole30 now. "Are you SURE?" "Is that HEALTHY?" I think I am just starting to question it and am looking for a little reassurance that this is in fact OK for me to do. I plan to discuss it with my OB this week at my appointment, but wanted to see if there are any ideas of pumping up my calorie intake between now and then... Thanks!
