Day 23 Whole 30

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

7 days to go. I've been trying to look for information as to why I'm still feeling like crap. There is some evidence to suggest that maybe I have a sensitivity to nuts or eggs. Last night all I had was a salad with some grilled chicken and homemade apple cider vinaigrette. I got about four bites in and my stomach just twisted up in knots. Horrible sharp gas pain, after I had barely eaten anything. The funny thing was that I was still hungry. I'm now at about the point where I'm afraid to eat anything. The only thing that doesn't seem to make me feel sick are the Lara Bars. My back still hurts too bad to exercise, and the plantar fasciitis makes it hard to do any walking, either. I'm a mess.

Yesterday I was in a day-long meeting. There was a catered lunch of mostaccioli, sausage, and chicken with gravy. Giant tray of brownies. I ate my little salad with my apple slices and olives. I got some raised eyebrows, but also some high fives from the other health nuts on the staff. I did okay, though. I wasn't craving any of the catered food. I'm just happy to be able to ingest anything and have it stay put properly.

The book says that sometimes it takes longer than 30 days to reset your system; some people need a Whole 45 or even a Whole 60. I don't know. Maybe I just need a fiber supplement in the morning. I've been taking pictures of myself at the start of each week (maybe I'll post before & afters if everyone promises not to laugh)...so far I so no difference at all in my body composition. I don't know...I was expecting different results from eating super healthy.

    How did you feel before Whole30? Is this feeling like crap something new? Are there things on Whole30 that you are eating now that you didn't eat before?

    I'm just trying to figure out why worse.
