Carrots&Blueberries Posted May 26, 2015 Share Posted May 26, 2015 Hey folks, I've stuck pretty close to the forums and really love them. My first W30 was almost 2 years ago and some of the habits (and benefits) stuck completely, but I've had a stressful last few months, and the small occasional squares of dark chocolate were suddenly larger chunks of not-so-dark chocolate, snacking has replaced meals on too many days... and I realized with a start yesterday that I'm not actually feeling that great or handling stress very well. So even though this is a tough work stretch for me, I'm suddenly really eager to start my second W30 NOW. Like, today. I loved Meal 1 today but I just read through the timeline for a refresher and got a bit worried. I have a big event on day 6, so having absolutely no energy on that day would kind of be a disaster for me. I don't remember having that the first time around, and I'm unlikely to get the carb flu symptoms (aside from the chocolate, my carb intake is pretty low - plus my default right now is no grains at all*, minimal dairy, minimal alcohol, no additives). The main change for me as I go into a W30 is the regularity of the meals and more protein and vegetables as a result (and of course no chocolate/sugar). If folks are already fat adapted (I'm pretty sure that I still am, despite the chocolate), does the energy still drop on Day 6 & 7? I know that there are no guarantees, but I would love some guidance from moderators and/or just stories from those who have done additional W30s with relatively compliant eating in between. * oops - not true - I've been eating rice a few times/week. I think I tolerate it fairly well, but that of course will be another change. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
