Finding it hard to eat so much food

Recommended Posts

This is my first Whole 30, and I'm on day 4. Other than the first meal of the day I'm finding it hard to eat as much as I think I'm supposed to. Yesterday was the first day I worked out, and no way could I have eaten a pre or post workout snack, I was just too full. I'm nursing my 9mo, so I'm including starchy veggies at every meal because I find I need the carbs to keep up my milk supply. I'm getting hungry before 4-5 hours though, and snacking between meals. I've seen the recommendations for nursing Mamas to eat 4 meals a day and I'm not there. I'm eating more like 3 meals and 2 snacks. 

Does this seem ok? I otherwise feel good so far.
