Day 17 and cravings are BAD!!

Recommended Posts

Man. I am 28 weeks and have been faithfully on plan and am on Day 17- its been tough but I notice a HUGE change in so many areas (energy mainly). I was reeeaaaally hoping my cravings would have subsided by now. This is my 4th Whole30 (2nd time thru during a pregnancy) and it is so different. I wasn't eating terrobly before, so I am kind of at a loss.

I am not even "snacky" anymore and feel full from meal to meal....but my cravings are seriously more intense than they have ever been (this is my 4th pregnancy)- Anyway...just looking for support ...someone twll me it gets better and goes away even while pregnant so I don't go indulge in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with sharp cheddat followed by ice cream. Haha. Because that is all I want right now.

Meal 2: Grilled chicken breast over a few handfuls of mixed greens with crumbled bacon, tomato, handful walnuts, baby carrots, 1/2 avocado and topped with paleo ranch, palm side of fruit (usually berries) and a baked sweet potato or white potato if Im out of sweet with a tab of ghee or grassfed butter.
