nofishyeseggs Posted May 24, 2018 Share Posted May 24, 2018 Hello! This is my first time doing Whole30. I'm doing the regular plan but not eating meat, because my mom is sensitive to grains and legumes and I want to see how I react. Day 6 I'm feeling good. I expected the first week to suck more, but honestly after the first couple of days it was fine. I am amazed by how it feels to not be bloated. My diet before was VERY carb heavy (I'm a junk food vegetarian), so this is different for me. I love to cook, but I'm getting sick of cooking every day. I try to double and triple the recipes so we have leftovers, but we end up eating it all. I work 9-6, and I really miss being able to just pick up a pizza. I've learned to only try the fancy new recipes on the weekend. Eating this many eggs is challenging without cheese. I'm working on a recipe to make quiche-like muffins that have a lot of eggs with the tasty savory stuff as well. Experimenting with using more yolks than whole eggs. My energy level is awesome. I'm someone that is usually fatigued most of the time (probably because of my weight and diet), so it's a nice change to feel sharp. My anxiety level is normal, except at night. I'm struggling with insomnia a little, which I used to get very bad before I went on medication. Paying closer attention to what I eat for dinner and my activity before bed so I don't exacerbate the insomnia. I slept fine last night, and actually walked the dogs in the morning for the first time ever. I can't tell how much of this success is from the food and how much is from me being motivated. Normally my diets fizzle out as soon as I'm tempted, but the added support of my boyfriend and the challenge of completely eliminating foods (rather than controlling the amounts) really helps calm the urge to rationalize cheating. I haven't had cravings, which is inSANE to me. I crave all the time normally. I have an extreme emotional attachment to food, and all the symptoms of binge eating disorder, though I've never been diagnosed. I expected the biggest temptation to stop would be the desire for food, but that isn't the case at all. The biggest temptation is laziness. But I'm working on finding easier recipes and better ways to meal plan that fit our lifestyle. Here's to 24 more days! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
