How I'm Feeling: Overall I feel pretty good, and have been sleeping HARD. The first few days I experienced a little dizziness or light-headedness, and I have not been able to workout quite as hard as I was before. I have read that this is due to a 'carb-flu' you will experience for the first week or two.
What I have noticed: So far I am not missing bread/pasta/carbs like I thought that I would. The only thing I have been craving a little bit is sweets, but I hear that lessens the longer you stick with it. Day 4(Saturday) was the only really tough day, I felt hungry all day and was ready to BINGE eat everything in the fridge. Luckily that passed and my hunger has now evened out. (whew)
Favorite Meal of the Week: This one is a tie between the plantain snackers and the Paleo breakfast sandwich, I am sure I will be making both of these recipes again next week.
Best part about the Whole 30: Saving money! Both Rob and I ate every meal at home/or took every meal to work. It was nice to plan meals, eat together, and appreciate the food that we cooked.
Worst part about the Whole 30: No chocolate or wine! I can't say that I don't miss these at all, but I don't think that I will have any problem finishing out the rest of January.
Looking forward to week 2, and hopefully some new & delicious Paleo recipes!
