emilaiti Posted March 3, 2015 Share Posted March 3, 2015 Hey everyone!! This is my first whole30 and so far I haven't had too many issues. I haven't craved chocolate or sugar in the past three days which is HUGE because I used to have a ridiculous sweet tooth which caused me to eat some sort of sweet at almost every single meal. My biggest issue is that I am a computer science major and therefore am staring at a computer screen pretty much all day and night working on homework so I don't have the luxury of not using electronics before bed because I pretty much spend all of my free time working on homework or one of my research projects. So there really is no escape from my electronics. After reading It All Starts With Food, I made the connection that my cortisol levels never properly decrease because of the artificial light from my computer screen. Which makes sense because I am on my laptop all of the time doing homework/research. Anyway, I've noticed that I tend to be fairly sleepy all of the time. I do have more energy since I started my whole30 but I get hit with waves of super sluggishness and sometimes fall asleep/take naps in the lab on my laptop. Naps help to an extent but I have a rather strict schedule I like to follow to ensure I finish everything I need to and taking naps all of the time doesn't really help and ends up just wasting time. Any other suggestions? Thank you Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
