Mackenzy Posted September 28, 2019 Share Posted September 28, 2019 I'm on day 7 of Whole30! I am very proud of myself for getting this far. I've learned a lot this week: I can tell when I need to eat vs when I want to eat, and I've learned that my cravings are all mental. I see a bag of chips and no longer feel the NEED to have them. I don't even miss non-Whole30 foods (other than the convenience). But there's been some issues. First, I noticed I am feeling dizzy. I went into the Whole30 with fluctuating vitamin deficiencies. Not sure if that was a good idea! I wake up not wanting to eat, disgusted by Whole30 foods... which isn't helping! Second, I got my period 15 days early. I'm sorry, I've seen forums about it being "normal" on the Whole30... but that can't be healthy can it?! Thirdly, I feel like the "you either complete the Whole30 or you fail it" aspect is really affecting me. Not only will I feel really guilty for quitting, but I also feel like I will despise myself for not attaining the physical benefits of the challenge. Is this challenge healthy for someone who struggles with vitamin deficiencies? Is my period coming 15 days early despite being on birth control a red flag? CAN SOMEBODY GIVE ME A PUNCH IN THE MINDSET? I'd love to hear your advice and some non-physical/appearance benefits you guys have received from the Whole30.
