AliceRF Posted October 31, 2012 Share Posted October 31, 2012 Hi There, I'm really hoping you can help me. I haven't trolled through all the posts here, as I'm more than a little behind in my work, but I was hoping a quick check in would help. So I'm day 24 of the Whole30 and I feel really OFF. I mean REALLY OFF. So I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong, or it's something very obvious. I'm more than prepared to have to go longer on the Whole 30 (even scared to stop, which I'm sure happens to others). So anyway, here are my symptoms: I have even less energy than I did when I started (which was the main reason I started this in the first place) I am going through a 'depressive' episode (happened last week too). Where I just don't want to do ANYTHING - don't want to cook, work, function at all. Just want to sleep. But I sam sleeping worse than what I was - finding it harder and harder to go to sleep. Nothing much seems to have improved at all. Bloated Skin breaking out Positives Yes I have lost weight (which is fantastic but I don't know how much), but it feels like I'm back tracking here - bloated and feel crappy I do like eating well Not craving sugar as much - I still look at my kids food and want what they are having but am saying No without fighting myself so much. I have figured out that I need to eat 3 really decent meals a day to keep me level and that I can't have eggs at lunchtime (any other time is fine, but lunchtime bloats me out and makes me feel awful). Stuff to note I am not relying on nuts - these are a very minor treat I know that I'm not eating enough greens - rely on Lettuce/tomato/carrots a lot, just can't stand kale etc I have not gone organic - as it is buying food in New Zealand is EXPENSIVE and I'm spending upwards of $300 per week (if not more) to get the protein and vege. I'm just hoping that the meat I'm eating is good enough Sleep - is not ideal. I have my kids during the day and I work at night, I workout early in the morning./ So I don't get to bed till about 11p and get up at 5:45am. I think this is the key, but not sure. That's all I have time for now. I need to run. Thank you in advance for any input you may be able to offer me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
