ach324 Posted December 10, 2015 Share Posted December 10, 2015 Hiya, first time posting. I'm doing my first whole30 and am disappointed in the lack of results so far. Trying to be patient but wish I were noticing just something, anything different. I definitely wasn't paleo before though I have/do cook almost every single one of my meals, generally eat lots of protein and veggies, and almost no grains and dairy during the daytime (sandwich for lunch = hungry an hour later), and max 1 or 2 drinks per week. I have honestly not found it the least bit difficult. I didn't feel any hangover/flu symptoms during the first bit as most do, I haven't gotten bored of food (even eggs) at all-- which is good but, but I haven't felt any positive signs either. My energy levels had been and are still fairy low, I'm still hungry enough to need snacks between meals despite following the meal template perfectly, and I wake up still feeling wiped even though I sleep 8 hours. The only noticeable pluses are that it's inspired me to try some fun new recipes and I eat even more veggies than usual throughout the day before of the template. Don't get me wrong-- I'm still glad I did it, it has been a fun experience and it's confirmed that my eating habits before were probably already pretty good and thus I won't need to drastically overhaul my diet when the month is over. Just wish I felt some sort of tangible benefit! But there are still 12 days late so maybe I'll feel it closer to the end. I could understand the status quo/lack of challenges or positive benefits if you were already paleo but like I said, I definitely wasn't. Has anyone experienced this stagnancy who wasn't paleo before? Thx! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
