juliainitaly Posted February 1, 2013 Share Posted February 1, 2013 Hello! today I'm on day 19 of Whole30. So far it's been going...okay. Total compliance on my part but waiting for some changes. Stats: 52 yrs old, female in menopause, physical good shape (I train for half Ironmans) and about 155 lbs. at 5'10" --- Yesterday I ran a 13k race. I was a little concerned about doing it while on day 18, but it went FANTASTICALLY. The race was at 2.30 pm. When I got up in the morning at 8.00am I had an egg + banana + coconut milk + tbs of a nut mix I made myself. At 12.30 I had prosciutto with sweet potato and water. While I ran it was very very good. I actually felt better in the second half of the race and I had great energy throughout. When I got home at 5.00 pm I had a banana and then a half a litre of water. About 6.30 pm I started to feel dizzy. I laid down and fell asleep for almost 2 hours and since then I feel like a truck ran over me - What's happening? Is this the famous carb flu that maybe was induced by making my body try and burn fat for fuel? Thanks for any input. Julia Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
