Day 2 of the Whole 30 has me feeling like a sack of shit. I woke up feeling very tired and sluggish. Not the feeling I thought I would have. I’m craving sweets almost once every 5 minutes.
I know I shouldn’t be this dramatic but I guess when I don’t have the option to eat certain things I want them more. Anyway – either way I was surprised when I woke up feeling tired with a horrible headache. I read in the book that this is normal and reflects how you were eating before the Whole 30, but I ate pretty healthy before. I guess I thought I would have had one leg up in this.
However, I’m determined to see this through. I have spent the last year stressed out and not feeling like myself. I found out in October that dairy was a huge part of my problem. When I gave up milk (I was drinking about 2 gallons a week), the bloating completely went away. Reading the testimonials to the Whole 30, gives me hope that I can feel even better. I want to sleep better. I want my skin to look better. I want to wake up every morning feeling good. And most importantly, I want a better understanding of what foods have a negative effect on me. I’m not saying that I’m going to give up bread forever if I find out that is an issue. But I will be conscious of it and eat it more in moderation. I want to be more knowledgeable and I finally have the time to do it!
