orca_chick Posted September 18, 2012 Share Posted September 18, 2012 So I'm on day 17 and I think it's time I reach out for some suggestions on how to solve a few issues I've been having. I've read ISWF and follow the forum fairly closely, but I still haven't been able to resolve a couple of things. I do have a food journal on the forum so maybe I need to add/subtract something from my diet. 1. I'm horribly constipated and can't seem to get things moving (unless I'm on a long run which is horrible timing). I've tried varying my fiber and adding in bananas or more cooked veggies, but it hasn't seemed to help. I've also been taking magnesium supplements every night before bed but even that hasn't really seemed to be effective. Right now, I'm usually having a bm maybe once every 3 or 4 days and it's not usually very substantial. (Sorry for all the details) I've also been taking digestive enzymes for the past 10 days and again, it hasn't seemed to help. Any suggestions? 2. I'm not hungry....at all...almost ever.....which I understand can be fairly normal, but I feel like it's affecting my energy level and my workouts. I'm training for a marathon so I've been forcing 3 meals per day to get calories into me, but I find that more often than not, i'm either not hungry and have a hard time eating a meal or I'm starving but then super full after a few bites of food. Would it be wrong to eat several smaller meals a day instead of 3 larger meals? I'm slightly concerned that making a habit of eating when I'm not hungry might make it harder for me to learn when my body is actually hungry or just craving. I also used to be a huge binge eater and eat just out of boredom so I'm really trying to be careful and just listen to my body. Any feedback is much much appreciated! Thank you and good luck to all of you that are also in the middle of your Whole 30. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
