Rachael2288 Posted October 7, 2012 Share Posted October 7, 2012 Hey everyone! It has been one week of my whole30 and I am a happy girl! I should probably be documenting better than I am but I think weekly updates will be good enough for me One week in to my Whole30 and I SERIOUSLY cannot believe the effects already! Luckily I have been eating fairly healthy and taking care of myself for some time so it hasn't been a horrible adjustment but it is crazy what I have already noticed. One week in pros and cons: Pros: - feeling better, no headaches or stomach cramps whatsoever (used to get headaches frequently) - more energy, less sleepy in the afternoon - not constantly hungry and thinking about what food I will eat next - way fewer cravings for sugar (huge problem for me before) - really satisfying food (more fats than I have eaten in probably 2.5 years) - lost ALL bloat. Like seriously, I can SEE MY ABS. That has never happened before Cons: - falling asleep is a little harder. Used to be able to fall asleep within seconds and now it takes 15 mins or so - get dizzy/lightheaded more frequently (very low blood pressure is normal for me so this will happen occasionally anyways) - going out to eat is much less fun (uncomfortable asking what everything is made with and what is in each item) - constantly wanting to tell people around me that what they are eating is making them unhealthy, especially my boyfriend and family - inconsistent digestion (not bad, just not regular like before) sorry if that's TMI - BIGGEST issue: My boyfriend is an orthopedic surgeon who used to be a bodybuilder (researched nutrition quite a bit) and he thinks the Whole30 is "stupid" and "dangerous" while he sits and eats tortilla chips, drinks diet rootbeer, and bowl after bowl of canned soup and cereal. DRIVING ME INSANE because he doesn't support this at all... ugh. I will just have to press on and ignore his comments!!! I hope everyone else who is in the middle is having just as much success as I am! I am very excited for the next 3 weeks and to see what else happens!!!
