Whole 30 Day 10 - Another challenging day

Hi all,
This is Rina. I have been working with Sophia for the past 6 months trying to spread the word about the wonderful Grass Fed Jerky Chews. I have been eating a pretty clean Paleo/Low Carb diet for the past few years, but still decided to jump right in and try the Whole 30. I'll be blogging daily about my experience for the next 30 days.

Breakfast was my usual 3 egg omelette with mushrooms and avocado in ghee. Yummy and satisfying.

I went to get my car serviced and during that time walked. About an hour and a half. It was a good walk. 

For lunch I had leftover ground bison and kelp noodles with broccoli slaw. I warmed up a portion but didn't feel full and finished the remaining small portion I had left. I still wanted to eat so I had a tsp coconut butter and Jerky Chews. Determined to stay away from nuts today. I feel much better when I eat jerky. 

I was feeling empty all day. Did not feel satiated other than after breakfast. Had half jicama and a hard boiled egg in the afternoon.

For dinner I warmed up Costco grilled chicken with greens, mushrooms and zucchini.
Still not happy.

Why am I feeling 'empty'?  I am not sure how to deal with it. Should I have extra fat? Protein? Should I have extra sodium? Broth? Pickle? Sour Kraut?

Being lost in this line of thought I turned to one of my favorite authors Dr. Barbara Berkeley. In her book Refuse To Regain, which I read after dropping about 60 lbs few years ago (using meal replacement diet Medifast, which worked for me but I wouldn't do it again as it is all processed food), I re-read her teaching on hunger and hunger cues.


It takes a while to re-train your body and psyche to form a different relationship with food. It is a work in progress.
