Thisisyourheart Posted June 4, 2015 Share Posted June 4, 2015 I wasn't really sure where to put this, so here it is. I'm on day three of my first whole30. I'm ideologically excited and practically having some trouble. I had some dietary restrictions before beginning (mostly just no gluten, but also limited processed sugar). So giving up the grains was no issue. My main concern at this point is, coming into this I was already eating a lot of fruit. I can easily sit down and eat half a box of strawberries no issue. Watermelon disappears, etc. I even infuse my water with fruit. Previously, I saw no issue with this because hey, fruit is healthy right? But since starting whole30 I recognize that even though I don't eat a lot of "bad" processed sugar, I still consume a lot of sugar via fruit. So I have to ask, what is an appropriate intake of fruit? When I want to eat fruit in excess, what should I eat instead? My other problem is I don't like very many foods. I'm the kind of person who has no issue eating the same thing every day. But that basically means I eat the same 2-3 meals that I like basically all the time. I don't know if that's bad or not. I like broccoli a lot so that's the main vegetable I eat. And I like chicken. So usually my meals consist of grilled chicken, roasted broccoli, and 1/2 of an avocado. Maybe if I ate something else it would help me stop wanting to eat so much fruit? I did make some hamburger sliders on roasted sweet potato slices with avocado tonight (with carrots and grilled pineapple on the side) so that's a new meal I liked. But the main question is: how much fruit is too much fruit, and what will help the craving when I've already had too much. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
