samantha_k Posted October 27, 2015 Share Posted October 27, 2015 Hi, I really need some help. I’m on day 15 and I feel like I have been doing this all wrong. For the 1st week I was having an apple in the evening (I’m a big night time eater, not really a sweet person to begin with) but I saw that you are not supposed to so I stopped and have managed not to eat anything after dinner. For a couple days I had a cup of orange juice a day (no added sugar) until I found out you can’t drink your fruit and I stopped immediately. Lastly I made homemade lara “balls” and had them for breakfast (2 small ones) for the last 2 days. I now read you should avoid these at all costs so I will. I haven’t technically eaten anything I that isn’t whole30 approved but I feel like I’m doing it all wrong and I have already failed. It’s frustrating to think I have dedicated myself for the last 2 weeks making sure to follow these rules only to discover it may have been a waste (although I am sleeping so much better, I use to wake up 3am every night and now I don't). I’m proud that I have avoided eating obvious non-compliant foods in social settings and stopped late night snacking but I feel like I have sabotaged myself and the Whole30 will not work now. I’m feeling very defeated and my anxiety is high which scares me because I don’t want to just give up and fall back to bad habits. My other issue is I’m not a big veggies person. Peppers, onions, lettuce, cucumber, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, potatoes (sweet and white), cherry tomatoes and sometimes mushrooms are the only veggies I like that are Whole30. Trust me I have tried to like others but I just don’t. I also don’t eat the majority of these on their own without some kind of condiment (except for right now). I like meat but hate fish! Again I have tried to like it especially tuna but no go. I like avocados but cannot eat it on its own. My breakfast was pumpkin custrard: pumpkin, coconut milk, banana, almond meal and eggs. Lunch: homemade soup or compliant meatballs Dinner: usually a piece of protein (steak, chicken, pork chops from a local butcher) and either butternut squash, spaghetti squash or potatoes cooked with avocado or olive oil. I work out at lunch HIIT for 25 mins and take the dogs for a walk at night and sometimes a bow flex workout. I don’t feel like I’m working out enough for a post workout meal but I do plan to up my exercise. Have I been “faking” whole30 this whole time? I feel so defeated.
