allegra Posted May 9, 2015 Share Posted May 9, 2015 I'm on Day 6 and overall I think i'm gonna like Whole30. I am having a weird issue. Later in the day, starting on Day 3 or 4, I get super nauseous. Like, have to sit down and breathe slowly through my nose-level nausea. I have a low performing thyroid which I take meds for but I'm not sure if that's related. I usually don't feel nauseous. Prior to Whole30 I was not much of a breakfast eater but when I did eat it, I would grab some sort of breakfast sandwich or hashbrowns and sausage. Lunch was a sandwich and dinner was whatever the rest of the family ate. I'm very lucky in that my fantastic-cooking mother moved in with me so I get a balanced meal for dinner. I haven't been weighing/measuring anything but my daily menu this week has been pretty similar to this: Breakfast: 2-3 eggs (scrambled or fried with ghee) Veggies (spinach, green beans, greens, whatever is in the fridge) 2 slices of Pederson's bacon I did have cantaloupe 2 days Lunch: Salad made with romaine (salad in a bag from Trader Joe's) An assortment of proteins, compliant crab, tuna, etc. One day I had a crumbled turkey burger on my salad. Each day's dressing was one of the compliant Tessamae's. I'm partial to Lemon Garlic and Chesapeake flavors. I would usually nibble a few kale chips or roasted plantain chips with my salad but it was often a 'chore' to eat the entire thing because I'm generally not very hungry. Dinner: Veggies! Cauliflower, squash, spinach, greens, salad, grape tomatoes Chile lime Chicken Burger, Turkey Burger with lettuce 'buns', grilled salmon and pan-fried catfish. Lemon garlic dressing on salad Guacamole on the chicken burger I have used Trader Joe's everyday spice or 21 spices or pink himalayan salt for seasoning items this week. That's new. I would have used True Lemon's lime, garlic cilantro spice mix last week but that was before I read the ingredients. I think that's it. Drinking 2 quarts of water a day (that's pretty normal). Hit me! What am I doing wrong? I feel fine pretty much all day but around 3:30p or 4:00p the ickiness creeps up on me and I am swooning. And the nausea doesn't leave me until I wake up the next morning. I manage to eat something for dinner and oddly enough, that usually helps but, ick. Thanks in advance all you Whole30 rock stars! P.S. I have pics of all my meals if that helps for gauging portions. I've been sending them to a friend who started Whole30 this week too, so we can what we're each eating.
