MrsMcG Posted June 16, 2015 Share Posted June 16, 2015 Good morning, I am on day 14 of my Whole30 and since about day 3 my cravings have been nonexistent. I've finally gotten my portions figured out so that I can eat enough at each meal to keep me from feeling hungry between meals so I have eliminated snacking, yay! However, the last few nights I have found that I am still hungry after dinner. I don't think it's the sugar dragon because as I said the cravings are gone. However, last night and the night before I ate fruit and a spoonful of almond butter after dinner. I know fruit and nut butters are not an ideal snack, but I'm wondering how much of an issue this is and if I should be doing something differently. Here's a typical day of eating for me: Breakfast - Coffee with ghee & coconut oil, 2-3 eggs, spinach, 1/2 avocado Lunch - Chicken breast, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, carrots, unsweetened coconut flakes Dinner - 2 Aidell's apple chicken sausages, about 1/4 of a small potato tossed with olive oil, onions and peppers, blackberries, handful of raw cashews I am drinking a TON of water (about 100 oz a day give or take) in addition to a cup of mint herbal tea once or twice a day. I will occasionally have a coconut water if I'm feeling really thirsty or low energy (the electrolytes seem to make me feel better?) I work out in the mornings before breakfast; I do Insanity and I know from experience that I can't eat before my workout. First of all, I get up at 5 a.m. as it is and can't get up any earlier without being seriously sleep deprived, and also I have never been able to tolerate food before a workout of any kind; I end up getting nauseous and can't finish the workout. I do eat breakfast within 30 minutes of finishing my workout though. Any thoughts on where this evening hunger could be coming from? How should I handle it? I feel like I am eating plenty; I make sure to get plenty of healthy fats and I have moved fruit to my evening meal to avoid the sugar crash that happens if I have it with breakfast. What am I doing wrong?? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
