MommyMarko Posted December 13, 2015 Share Posted December 13, 2015 I hope ladyshanny sees this - for background, I have one other post: calorie counting, 21 DSD, and scale. I was told to stop all of it, trust my hunger, stop snacking, and step up my meal size. I was on day 24 when I changed my WHOLE 30 methods, and I'm starving. When I was calorie counting, I allowed myself about 1800 cal/day. And snacks. I also had no fruit or carby vegetables like sweet potato. Because I'm pretty good at estimating calories, I know that I'm eating closer to 2400 a day now. And I'm allowing myself some carbier veggies. And making meals larger, so as not to snack. I am following the meal template. And I'm STARVING!!!!! 2 hours after a meal, my stomach screams at me! My sugar dragon is also more restless. Very restless. And, please someone explain - if Whole 30 is supposed to train my body to burn fat, and I have over 100lbs of fat to lose, how on this green earth, am I not losing weight?? If I followed my body's hunger cues, I'd be eating 3000cal a day, and GAINING FAST! I just want this to work, so bad, and it really isn't, I'm starting to think of Whole 30 as JUST an elimination diet, not a supportable, healthy weightloss and lifestyle maintenance program.
