I suggest signing up for TheWhole30 Daily, it’s well worth the additional information and help it provides. You will get 0-30 emails from whole30.com each day. It costs $14.95 but it’s worth it. It will help set you up for success. Also give you wonderful daily information regarding the plan that can be helpful.
Like today’s email told me why I am so tired! Ah ha! I have not had many side effects yet except being tired. I am napping these past few days. Oh for the love of naps.
Tired: You’re probably more tired and lethargic today. This is your body adapting to its new fuel source – fat – and transitioning out of your old “sugar-burner” days. (We’ll talk about this more on Day 6, when you’ve had some more time to adjust.) This is normal, and will resolve quickly, as long as you do your part to help. Sleep lots. Take naps. Take time off from the gym, or make it a “half-intensity” week. Don’t lean too heavily on caffeine or sugar from fruit to see you through mid-afternoon slumps. Basically, be patient, accept this is a normal part of your transition, and don’t expect any personal bests in the gym, or miraculous energy highs this week. Those things will come in due time, we assure you.
