Hello,

My husband and I started the Whole 30 and we are on day 4.  We have not added a workout to our process yet, but he has a very active job anyway and is constantly on his feet.  He has been getting hungry in between the three meals and I had a question about the pre/post WO meals.  Since he is not technical working out, but he is highly active throughout the day, can he have one of those meals and if so, when?  He is a big guy too.  He is 6 foot and about 270.  He is a Type 2 diabetic as well.  Any information you can provide would be appreciated.  Thank you!

Hi kater98!  

I'm not an expert, but I think I know the first question we usually ask:  Can you give us a food list for the last couple of days, and also a sense of the type and level of activity he's engaged in?  

ThyPeace, my husband started out at 5'11" and 265.  Now he's still 5'11" and 202.  Not all because of Whole30, but it has helped.

I think Eating enough to get you from one meal to the next takes some doing, especially if you are used to snacking. Its something to aspire to I think. Please, correct me if I'm wrong someone. -The idea is for your body to use fat as fuel between meals, you can only do that when your insulin levels drop between meals. If you snack that doesn't happen so much. If your hubby is suffering between meal low blood sugar it can be hard to not snack.... It takes practice. How about just extending the time between meals gradually, would that work. In a 4 meal day?
