Kacieleonab Posted July 23, 2019 Share Posted July 23, 2019 Day 4. I just started Whole30 to improve digestion and to gain an overall healthier lifestyle as well as see if it would treat occasional anxiety. The first 4 days have been great, I'm not experiencing any of the symptoms (yet) that I've heard about. I feel like my meals are good but don't keep me full for long which has allowed for snacks twice daily throughout my 12 hour shifts. After reading I realized that I should substitute my 2 servings of fruits for more healthy fats and veggies for my snack and the fat has really helped. I wanted to put what I've been eating out there to make sure I'm not missing anything and eating a balanced diet. Everything is 100% compliant and the standard Whole30 plate to the best of my ability (palm sized protein, abundance of veggies and thumb size fat.) My goal within the nest few days is to really shift into not having any snacks. Breakfast: 2 eggs, fried (ghee or coconut oil) or scrambled with spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms peppers, onions, etc. 1/2 sweet potato, and Reds Hot sauce Snack: Was a banana or a half of a peach but have switched to Cucumbers or 1/4 avocado Lunch: Spinach Salad with tuna (mixed with compliant mayo and red pepper flakes) veggies (tomatoes, cucumbers, red peppers) topped with compliant salsa Snack: 1/4 cup Almonds or 1/2 of peach Dinner: Grilled chicken with Kale, grilled veggies (bell peppers, onions) and 1/2 sweet potato topped with franks red hot sauce. Since Day two I have been craving items with vinegar (sauerkraut, pickles, mustard) sometimes when I get home I'll have a scoop of Sauerkraut before bed... what's up with this craving? I know it's not unhealthy as long as I'm not snacking on it too much or creating an unhealthy relationship with the food. Another concern is Constipation... wah wahhh. thanks for any advice!
