MorganLouise Posted June 17, 2016 Share Posted June 17, 2016 I'm on day 32 of my second W30 and looking for some insight. I completed my first W30 in January this year, and after the 30 days I felt better, had plenty of NSVs but never really shook my fatigue. I was diagnosed with a vitamin D deficiency in March, had my thyroid (family history of Hashimoto's) and cortisol levels checked and have seen 3 drs over the past few months unable to explain my extreme fatigue/generally feeling lousy. The vitamin D supplement from my dr helped some, but not enough for me to feel like myself again. I do have elevated thyroid antibodies, but after seeing an endocrinologist, they're not high enough to treat. I do Crossfit 4-5 mornings a week and I've added 60-80 miles of biking to my week recently as I train for a 100 mile ride in August. I really enjoy working out and after having a body composition done, I have about 30lbs of fat to lose. Weight loss is definitely a goal for me on my Whole30 journey, but feeling better is my priority. I started another round hoping to finally shake this fatigue and start feeling alive again. On day 32 I'm having great NSVs again, cravings totally gone, sleeping better, clearer skin, but still so darn tired. My typical meals from the past few weeks: 5:30am - handful of nuts before the gym (all I can stomach that early) 7am - RXbar (I know this is technically emergency food, but it's what works for me that I can stomach after a workout. I've tried chicken and carrots/sweet potato, but I just couldn't do it) 8:30am - M1 - frittata full of veggies (broccoli, peppers, potato, sometimes sausage, with coconut milk for fat) or chicken breast with roasted veggies, sweet potato and pesto or avocado. I also have a cup of tea with breakfast, my only caffiene for the day. 1pm - M2 - Turkey/steak with broccoli/sweet potato/brussels sprouts/beets/asparagus and half and avocado or olives 6pm - M3 - Beef and broccoli with cauliflower rice/ salad with ground turkey, cucumbers, tomatoes, olives and tessemae's/ bologense sauce with zoodles I follow the meal template with usually a palm or more of protein, usually 2 cups of veggies and a fat source. I really want to stick with this and keep going with my W30, but I'm wondering if either my meals need some real adjustment to help give me some energy? I really believe in the W30 program, but I'm seriously struggling with this fatigue and hoping a pro can help provide some insight. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
