Deepdiver343 Posted September 23, 2019 Share Posted September 23, 2019 I am currently on day 9 of my first whole30. I am not experiencing any of these "little victories" that I feel I should be seeing now. In addition, my bank account is suffering due to the high cost of all the clean food. I'm finding it really hard to eat the volume of food the template shows. Even for months prior to Whole30 I did't eat too terribly. I eat 2 over-easy eggs and 1/2 an avocado each morning and that fills me up. The last few days I have had 2 eggs and 1/2 an avocado for lunch, and some meals that account for dinners and the next days lunch have been bacon-wrapped chicken with roasted broccoli, stir-fry chicken and, bang bang shrimp tacos. We've been getting all our recipes from the W30 guide book and cook book and a few from Istagram ensuring full compliance of ingredients. I'm not sure what I should be feeling at this point, but I haven't had the 'my pants are tighter,' EATT, 'hangover' etc. The only feelings I have had is feelings of doubt, that all this work that I'm putting in with meal planning, and meal prepping, and watching all the ingredients isn't worth it without seeing any 'little victories.' Lots of other forum posts I've read have answers that people aren't eating enough. I dislike the feeling of being stuffed and eat only about a 6oz portion of protein per meal. The stir fry recipe that we made was supposed to be for 2 servings and we were able to stretch it to dinner and lunch for 2 people (4 servings). I'm probably not drinking enough water, so i'm trying to improve that. Any help or encouragement will be greatly appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
