TriGirlD Food Log - Oct 9th Start Date.


Recommended Posts

Ok, I decided to do this latelast night when i started reading the book, and then realized if I didn't start right away, I'd bump up into a vacation.  So, today was a little too hastily prepared, and therefore I have to just accept the fact that I don't have enough food and am HUNGRY.


I also am making a difficult transition from being a grazer/eating every 2-3 hours, to now just trying for 3 square meals.  THis is ... intersting.


Today's food thus far:
preworkout - small sweet potato, raw watermelon seeds

postworkout/breakfast - 1 fried egg, 1/2 avocado, strawberries, 1 tbsp almond butter

Lunch - Kale salad with butternut squash, pumpkin seeds, and a palmfull of chicken with curry powder.  Oil and Lemon dressing.


I was pretty satisfied after my breakfast, but I am starving after this lunch!  I may need to go get some fruit to tide me over. Looking forward to learning more about how to structure my meals so I"m not so hungry.  Should I be eating more?


Already having a moment where I don't think I can do this. But really, it's just hunger. It won't kill me. I have plenty of reserved fats to tap into! I'm working on just accepting it.  THe book said that the initial hunger is caused by your body being so used to feeding off sugar energy.  I can see that being especially true in my afternoons, when I used to succumb to sweet or carb-laden treats or a big full fat latte. So my body needs to learn to find its satisfaction without the sugar.

Yes, you do need to eat more. The meal template is a handy visual reference you can print and keep on the fridge as a reminder, but basically, every day, starting within an hour of waking up, eat three meals that look like:

  • 1-2 palm-size portions of protein (that's the length, width, and depth of your palm) -- if eggs are your only protein source in a meal, have as many whole eggs as you can hold in your hand
  • 1-2 thumb-sized portions of fat (or a heaping handful of olives or coconut flakes, or 1/2 to a whole avocado, or a small handful of nuts) -- this is typically in addition to the fat you cook with, as that often stays in the pan and isn't consumed
  • 1-3 cups of vegetables (hint: more is better) -- if you have raw leafy greens as your only vegetables, you probably want even more than that, as they tend to break down to nothing as you eat and don't always keep you full as long as denser vegetables
  • Occasionally, have some fruit, try to limit it to two servings a day. You never have to eat any, and don't let the fruit push the vegetables off your plate.

In addition to those three meals, if you work out, have pre- and post-workout meals. Pre-workout should be fat and protein (some people like a hard boiled egg, maybe with a little mayo), and if you have eaten a full meal within a couple of hours of your workout, you may not need this. Post-workout should be lean protein and starchy vegetable -- this article explains more about what (and why) to have post-workout.


Most people feel best if they have at least one fist-sized serving of starchy vegetables each day, and people who are active, who are prone to depression or anxiety, or women who are nursing, pregnant, or in the week or so leading up to their period often find they need more than that.


Aim to drink 1/2 oz of water per pound of body weight (so if you weigh 120 lbs, aim for at least 60 oz of water a day), and salt your food to taste.



(Also, raw watermelon seeds?!? :huh: I didn't know people ate those, I always spit them out. As far as I know, they're compliant, that just sort of lept out at me.  :))

Oh my goodness, thank you so much! I think I messed up by getting the book Whole 30 instead of "It starts with food." It's kind of hard to find the rules and guidelines in this massive thing. I'm only 100 pages in and really have so much more to learn.  I really didn't add any fats to my meals, so I'm going to focus on that more.  And thank you for the workout link!


And raw watermelon seeds are something I found in trader joes last week :)  They are roasted with salt and taste like sunflower seeds.

Dinner last night: Ground beef burger patty pan fried with broccolini and potatoes. I was so happy to be satiated!


Today's food: 

B  @ 9am - 2 egg scramble with kale, broccolini, and hot sauce, plus guacamole and a banana. 

L  @ 1:30pm - buffalo chicken (using Franks Hot Sauce), homemade ranch dressing (from the book), celery, and jicama.  


I felt too full after lunch to have the kiwi berries or pickles I'd selected, but now it's 2 hours later and I'm getting a little hungry again.  Curious how this all evens out. I don't want to force feed myself when I'm full or not really hungry, but my body is still used to eating every few hours, so this is going to be an adjustment. 


Feeling good today, though! The book said I may be groggy or achy or feeling hungover on day 2 and 3 and I don't feel any of that. I feel rested and content, and I have no desire to eat off program.    However, I did go grocery shopping today and was shocked.... I have never bought this much meat! I decided to follow the first week meal plan from Whole 30 book, and it led me to buy 5 packages of meat, plus some fish. wow... that is pricey and way more meat than I have ever eaten before. I think my biggest challenge on this month is going to be finding ways to make the meat taste less meaty.   Plan to have Sausage, Onions, and Peppers for tonight, and have to do some prep for the week ahead as well.

Had a challenging day 3 since I was out for most of the day. 

Woke up early and cooked up breakfast while I munched on a pre-workout snack of hardboiled egg and some walnuts. 


Sat in car and ate 1 spicy sausage link, applesauce, sugar snap peas, a sweet potato, and olives. 


Drove out to meet my friends in Glendale to go Apple Picking. Avoided all the cider-donuts, apple cider, and warm decadent beverages at our 2 starbucks stops.


Lunch: Salad with chicken and avocado, oil and vinegar dressing.


Apple at orchard, and lara bar, as I was super hungry - started feeling a little faint. 


Dinner: out with husband.  Salad with chicken again, and some olives. 


Slight headache this afternoon. But glad I survived these social situations. Thats a wrap on Day 3!!

Day 4:

Slight headache in the morning, but gone by 10am. I think my "headache day" is officially done with for now. The book's timeline was fairly spot on. 

I had a great day where I was buzzing around thinking I've finally got this... and then I got totally overwhelmed with dinner. I"m having such a hard time figuring out the balance of my plate. 


Meals today: 


B: Spinach Frittata from book (3 eggs)

Mid Morning: small cup of decaf coffee, black over ice with some lemon juice

L: Salad with a palmful of roast beef, ranch dressing, pickles, jicama, tomatoes, 1/4 avocado (the rest went bad), 1 small baby potato, 1 sweet potato. 

Snack: larabar, hardboiled egg

D: zucchini noodles with peppers and onions, 1 sausage link, tomato sauce, and walnuts. sooo good. 


Breakfast took me 5 hours before I was hungry.  Lunch: 2 hours and I started feeling slightly hungry, by 4 hours, I had to eat something.  This is so confusing because it was so much food that I actually thought I overdid it - I was totally overfull when I finished eating. I wonder if I'm just so used to a 3pm snack that my body is triggering the hunger signal at that time, no matter what.  I gotta play with this one. 


Unfortunately, being hungry threw me into a tailspin when I got home to cook dinner. Did I have enough veggies? Protein? Crap, what if it's not enough! I have developed such a fear of being hungry, and I have to address this. In part, it's genuine, because when I get hungry, I tend to get dizzy and faint. It makes me feel out of control and panicky.  But I think it's exasperated by this idea that I can't eat again until my next meal. I know that's not a rule, but the guideline has me in a tizzy.  Definitely something to explore. 


Also, I need to find the balance between genuinely being hungry and/or my brain just telling me I am. Is it true? I"m starting to think my brain is tricking me, because when I distract myself and stop thinking about the food, I often am not hungry anymore. I try to use the fish rule from the book, but it doesn't always work for me. I'm so conditioned to eating every 2-3 hours that I think I've learned to always say yes to food, just to keep my metabolism running, even if I'm not truly hungry. Gotta learn to identify this feeling again.

Take a deep breath, and try to relax.


For your meals:


Your protein at lunch -- when you say a palmful, what does that mean? A serving of protein should be the length, depth, and width of your palm, and that's the minimum -- you can have two portions that size. I'm not sure how much dressing you used, but with only a quarter of an avocado, you could probably have used more fat -- maybe some olives or you could have added some nuts to the salad.


At dinner, how big a sausage link are we talking? Because when I have something like Applegate Farms chicken & apple sausages, or their hot dogs, or anything roughly that size, I have two of them. If they're smaller than that, maybe three.


It is okay to eat this much food. It's also okay to plan for extra food if you feel better doing that, but instead of the larabar, try taking two hard boiled eggs, some homemade mayo or guacamole, and some carrot or celery sticks or bell pepper slices or tomatoes.


For are you hungry or not: Try to do the fish test. If you're not sure, try to wait a little while. If you're able to distract yourself easily and forget about eating, you probably weren't really hungry. If sometimes you have a snack, even if you're not hungry, it's not the end of the world -- but you should try to figure out why it happened, so you know what to look for next time. I know I'm an emotional eater, and even though logically I know eating doesn't fix sadness or anger or whatever, that's still the first thing I want to do when those emotions hit. Sometimes I do give in and have food, even knowing I'm not hungry, but the more I work on stopping myself and figuring out what's going on that's making me want food, the easier it is to recognize when I'm not hungry and stop myself. Maybe for you it's not emotional eating, maybe for you it's boredom or habit, but whatever your reason is, if you start to learn to recognize it, it will get easier to stop yourself eating.


For the dizzy, faint feeling -- if you are truly worried about this, figure out something you can keep around that will help quickly if you do feel this way (fruit may be enough to do it, or packets of unsweetened apple sauce would be easy to carry around if you need to) so that you know if you need to have something you can. I do think if you consistently eat enough at meals, you'll probably find that you don't have issues with this anymore. Most people who start Whole30 with blood sugar issues find that they are improved by eating this way. Personally, I was testing as pre-diabetic right before I started my first Whole30 and I'm not anymore.

Day 5 and Day 6 were much better.  The hunger is being less pronounced by dizziness/weakness, and more just "oh, I could eat something." Both days I got through with only 3 meals.  Today I was really challenged, as I had a very emotional day (found out I have to delay my 'try to make a baby' plans because of some health issues), and all I wanted to do was come home to a big glass of wine and some chocolate.  But I made the whole30 version of a comfort food dinner:  potatoes mashed with olive oil, salt, and dill, plus a hardboiled egg, and then some buffalo chicken. It was really satisfying and I was proud to stay on plan. stuffing my face with bad food really won't fix it. 


So food today:

Breakfast: 2 Pieces chicken and half a leftover spinach frittata

Lunch: Leftover cabbage slaw with cashews and a cup of tuna salad

Dinner: 3 baby potatoes with olive oil, 1 egg, 1 piece of buffalo chicken, and a bowl of green beans. 


Excited that tomorrow will be the end of my first week!

Day 7! 1 Week Down! 


Feel good. Had to have both my meals out today, but it went fine.  


B: Egg scramble (3 eggs) with asian veggie medley, and coconut milk in my coffee

L: Salad with tomato, avocado, onions, roasted turkey, lime juice and olive oil, plus an apple


Hungry after this, but was on the go and had to just suck it up. It wasn't enough protien


D: I was at a board meeting, buffet style at a country club.  I looked at the buffet and it was veggies smothered in butter, and chicken picatta, plus a little antipasto tray.    I was so proud of myself for asking the chef's nicely to make me a plate of veggies and chicken plain, with no butter or dairy involved.  It felt weird at first - all 45 board members were just eating from the buffet, but they had no problem, and came out to me with a gorgeous plate with a giant plain grilled breast of chicken and potatoes and zucchini with just olive oil. Very good! I threw some olives on my plate from the antipasto tray and was good to go! Nice to know I could make the plan work, even in a situation like this.


They were serving homemade cupcakes at this meeting. These are my favorite. And the baker who makes them is fantastic.  I passed on all of it, including the chocolate chip cookies people were eating next to me (and breathing at me as they spoke to me), but on the way home, I had definite cravings to pull in somewhere and get something sweet.   I've done pretty well without having cravings so far this week, but the willpower needed tonight definitely cracked my veneer. Proud that I stuck to nutrient dense, clean food.  :rolleyes:


Let's do this, week 2!

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted here. I'm on Day 12, and really feeling good overall. This does not feel daunting anymore.


I've found it SO easy to order in restaurants; asking how a piece of chicken is cooked is truly not that hard, and everyone has been so amazingly accommodating. One of the perks of living in Santa Monica, I think. Not only can they tell me how the chicken is cooked, but they make their own salad dressing and can give me the ingredient list!


As halloween approaches, and people talk about the candy they've bought to give out to trick or treaters, I'm definitely finding myself craving a snickers bar. Ugh, even typing that is hard. I can taste the sugary nuggety goodness!   Its weird because if one was right in front of me, I think I could resist. I'm full and satiated, feeling healthy and in control, and all that goodness. But still.. I'm in the daydreaming/craving phase. 


I think I'm finding the balance with food. I only hoping I am not eating too much fat.  Today's meals: 


6am/PreW: lara bar (I know - this is not what I should be having, but I left my darn snack on the counter and I was feeling so hungry, I was nearly dizzy, so I went for my emergency stash in my glove compartment. These also are not a trigger for me). 


7:30am/Breakfast: 1 fried egg, 2 slices bacon, 3 baby potatoes, pomegranate seeds

11:40pm: I was starving so I had some jerky and an apple. Maybe not enough fat at breakfast?

12pm/Lunch:  (out at restaurant) Greek salad (lettuce, olives, cucumbers, onions), grilled chicken, avocado, oil and vinegar dressing

7pm/Dinner:  Snacked on some coconut flakes as I cooked dinner. Main course was Cabbage Slaw (carrots, cabbage, whole30 mayo, cashews) and grilled chicken


So, I may have to take coconut flakes out of my house. They can be a food with no brakes for me.  I can just reach up and grab them and a few minutes later, I've had 4 handfuls.  


Feeling slightly tired today, but not a great night of sleep yesterday.  Looking forward to a good one tonight!  Onwards!

You should probably add more protein to your breakfast. Bacon is generally more a fat than a protein source, and a serving of eggs if they're your only protein source is as many whole eggs as you can hold in your hand, which is probably 3-4. I bet if you'd had three eggs with your bacon and potatoes, you wouldn't have needed the snack.

Thanks Shannon - continuing to refine. I didn't relize bacon was a fat, but that makes total sense!


Day 13 - hit a bit of a slump. Was tired and kind of hungry.



Pre-Wo: 2 slices deli meat, 1 baby potato

B: Leftover Chicken Cashew Cabbage Slaw and a banana, plus a small coffee with coconut milk

Lunch: leftover Zoodles and roasted yellow squash with "sloppy joe" meat and green olives

Dinner: big piece of cod with avocado lime mayo, red peppers, and sweet potato. 


I'm finding that on days that I do my really tough workout (mon, wed, and fri) I feel hunger in between meals, especially after lunch. I eat breakfast after I work out, so I never do a post workout snack, but I think I need to find a way to throw in more of something on those workout days.


Day 14 - Feeling good! Have a very long day today and feeling like I have the energy to sustain it.



B: 2 fried eggs, 2 slices bacon, baby potatoes, half banana

L: leftover cod with pico de gallo, 1/2 cup roasted butternut squash, 2 pickle spears, 7 olives, cup of grapes

D: I am running an event tonight. I have leftover chicken cashew cabbage slaw that I'm planning on scarfing down in my car before I head in to set up at 4:30.  If for some reason I can't make that happen, I have a lara bar stashed away just in case.

Well, I thought I was flying through this, but hit a total speed bump.  Felt crappy for Day 15, 16, and now the beginning of 17. Here were those days: 


Day 15 - skipped workout today. Felt pressure and pain in my head about 1pm on.  Maybe dehydrated? Tired? 

7:30 B: Last of the chili meat with an egg cracked on top, potatoes

Big coffee with coconut milk. Didn't start drinking water until noon. 

12:30 L: romaine lettuce topped with bacon, tomato, and egg salad (2 eggs) in compliant mayo, plus a side of butternut squash

Mini Meal @5: coconut flakes and raisins

8pm - shredded chicken with Franks hot sauce, olives, broccoli

Water - 70 to 80 oz


Day 16 - got full night sleep last night, but could have slept for hours more. Had to get up. 

PreWorkout - 1 hardboiled egg, 2 bacon slices

Tough Workout - 32 oz of water

M1 - Egg Salad (eggs with mayo), sweet potato, almond butter (I was out of veggies)

no water until lunch

M2 - Greek Salad with Roasted Turkey (at restaurant) - lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, avocado, turkey, balsamic vinegar, oil *Headache started after lunch

M3 - Burger patty with olive tapenade, a quick salad of avocado/onions/tomatoes/lime juice, pickles, and a few spoonfuls of applesauce

bloating and crampy feeling

Ending with  70 oz of water

Terrible pressure headache from noon until I went to bed. Advil didn't help. 


Day 17 - woke up at 3am and had rough sleep after that. This morning, had super loose stools which were green.

Breakfast: leftover burger patty with almond butter and 1 slice bacon. banana (out of veggies. going shopping this morning)


headache is better this morning. I've already downed a 32oz water bottle. it's still there under the surface so we'll see what happens at noon today..

Lunch was preceded by food prep and I nibbles on some baked potato and coconut flakes. Then the main course was a potato gutted and stuffed with sausage, green onions, and a whole egg and baked for 25 min.

Again, an hour before dinner I picked on some of the potato guts. Prob should have added more veggies and fat to lunch.

Dinner: stuffed yellow pepper with grass fed ground beef, onions, and olive tapenade.

Man, the headache seemed to go away today (yay!) but if it shows up again tomorrow, I may have to seriously consider this FODMAP thing.... I just realized how many of them I had today.

Day 18 - Tigers Blood!!!  I think, at least. I had a great day today. Had a complete day of perfectly level energy. What a strange thing to be able to sit though a 3 hour meeting before lunch without one yawn, sail past the 2/3:00 hour without one thought of coffee, and have enough energy at night to cook tonight's dinner, tomorrow's dinner, and pack breakfast and lunch! And I still have an hour before bed! 


Still having digestive issues, but I finished reading "It starts with food" today and they talk about how it can take months for your digestive tract to get back into a normal rhythm.  So, not too worried about it. I did add magnesium, though, as someone suggested, and I'm avoiding raw veggies as much as possible. 


PWO: Buffalo jerky and coconut flakes

M1: Stuffed Peppers from last night and broccoli, plus half a grapefruit

M2: Baked potato stuffed with sausage and an egg, plus broccoli and other half of the grapefruit

M3: Coconut Crusted Chicken with steamed kale, broccolini, and some tahini

Day 22 - feeling great today. Got lots of sleep, powered up stronger on my workout, and have plenty of energy.

Also, I added magnesium into my daily viatmin routine, and I think it's helping! I seem to be back to regular morning polite poops! So exciting. :P


PreWo: Buffalo Jerky with Chia Seeds

M1: mixed veggies with 3 fried eggs and 1/2 avocado's worth of guacamole, 1 grapefruit. It's takig me a while to eat my breakfast - gotta finish up so I can let my hormones have time to do their thing!

M2: Avoiding the potluck feast for halloween with my leftover Turkey Chili, Avocado and 1/2 baked potato.


I ran out of meat yesterday, because the ribs I made yestrday shrunk down so much in cooking that there was only enough meat for last night.  No leftovers :( So have to stop off at the grocery store on the way home today. Not enough meat - #whole30 problems.

Day 22 ended slightly poorly. Hubby wanted to go out to eat near the amusement park we were visiting for Halloween. After giving up on  finding a decent restaurant, we ended up at Wendy's. I did lots of research and knew what was safe. Ordered a hamburger patty with lettuce, tomato, pickles and a plain baked potato.  Burger game as a lettuce wrap, and I bit into it. It tasted funny. Opened it up and it had cheese on it! Grr!  Went back for a new one, but sad that I had this slip up.  

Going to finish up the last week on the program though, because I only have a few days left before I leave for vacation. 


Day 23: Felt great. Good Energy, clear head. 

M1: Egg scramble with veggies and olives

M2: Buffalo chicken strips with carrots, more olives

M3: Roast Beef, spaghetti squash, pesto sauce


Day 24: 2 Scuba-Diving adventures. 8 hours sleep

M1: Shoved a fistful of the sausage "meatloaf" I'd made into my mouth at 5am as we headed out for scuba diving. Also had a hardboiled egg. (so no veggies or fat)

M2: Mini meal of walnuts and dried apples

M3: Boat made burgers, so I had mine without the bun and some extra veggies.  Then also ate a compliant lara bar. 

M4: Big helping of chicken waldorf salad (grapes, apples, chicken, walnuts in compliant mayo), plantain chips, and 2 slices of prosciutto. 

yikes, probably only had 70oz water


Day 25: Ooph, headache. 8/9 hours sleep. woke up really early. 

M1: Palm-sized helping of sausage loaf with hot sauce, and small sweet potato, 6 almond-stuffed olives.  Felt full at end of meal, but was hungry 2 hours later

M2: Chicken waldorf salad with cup of green beans

M3: 4 hours later, decided maybe my headache was food related, and had a mini meal of walnuts, dried apples, and 2 slices prosciutto

M4:  Dinner tonight will be Buffalo Chicken strips with veggies and a whole30 book compliant ranch. 


no workout today. It's 4:30 and I've had 78 oz of water, and will drink another 12 before the night is over.

Day 26: Broken sleep - dog woke me up every two hours. The headache seeemed to be just under the surface but left me alone, until about 6:00 when I was hungry and thirsty and stuck in traffic on the way home. Then it kicked back in.  I had energy right up until the end of the day.



B: Sausage Meat, 2 eggs, potato, avocado

L: 2 strips chicken with Franks Hot Sauce, carrots, jicama, almond-stuffed olives, half grapefruit

D: 4 meatballs with sauce, broccoli, olives


Day 27: solid 8 hours sleep, felt good this morning. headache kicked in for a moment after workout, but seems to be at bay. still sniffling a bit, so I really think my body just happens to be fighting off the cold everyone has at work.


prewo: jerky slices and coconut flakes

postwo: 1 egg, 1 small sweet potato

M1: kitchen sink meal (running out of food and leave for vacation tomorrow!).  leftover waldorf salad, coconut flakes, 1 egg, lara bar

I think I've figured out that the headaches are always accompanied by a runny nose, and the crazy santa ana winds we're getting here in So Cal. I think this is actually an allergy, and has nothing to do with Whole30. Everyone else at my work is suffering too. Sucks, because it makes it harder to experience the tigers blood.



Day 6: Woke up with a headache and stuffed nose.

M1: meatloaf 1 cup, 1/2 avocado, baked potato.  10 oz water.

coffee with coconut milk mid morning.

M2: homemade chicken soup (so happy to have this on this cold day!) with ghee, almond and kale salad, mango.
