Christine07 Posted July 23, 2019 Share Posted July 23, 2019 Hello! I am on Day 9 of my first Whole30. I am struggling with extreme lethargy and brain fog. I was hoping someone could take a look at a couple days of food logs and give me some feedback? A little about me....40 year old female, current weight 260, and I work a sedentary job. I do CrossFit 3x a week and try to do something active the other 4 days, i.e., go for a walk, play with my son at the park, etc. Next week I plan on adding in two weightlifting days. I go to CrossFit after work and get home around 7:00. I eat dinner around 8:00. Below are my food logs for the last couple days: Monday Breakfast - .5 cup roasted white potatoes; 1 serving egg casserole (total recipe = 8 eggs, .5 cup egg whites, 2 oz applegate farms ham, 4 slices paleo sugar free bacon, 1 cup chopped broccoli. Makes 4 servings) Lunch - 1 serving chicken sheet pan meal (1 chicken thigh, 3/4 cups of sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, apples, shallots mixure); 3 oz baby carrots and 1 wholly guacamole cup; 3/4 cup cherries. Snack - Apple + almond butter; 1 serving dried pineapple Preworkout - Rx Bar Dinner - 1 serving of barbacoa, 1 wholly guacamole cup, 1 cup brussel sprouts cooked in olive oil Tuesday Breakfast, lunch, dinner = same as above except I added a banana at breakfast. Preworkout - 1 hardboiled egg, 1/4 avocado, 1/4 cup almonds, 2 tbs raisins Any thoughts or advice? One thing I have noticed since starting Whole30 is my sleep has improved drastically. I sleep like the dead. Prior to Whole30, I always woke up several times a night. I am now getting a solid 8-9 hours. I just can't shake the lethargy and brain fog.
