Taco Soup - Second Week of Whole30

Whole30 Week 2 in Review: When Cravings Strike

Posted on

Week 2 of Whole30 is when the cravings hit me.  After not having many in the first week, I thought that I must be so strong-willed to not even have cravings in my second week of Whole30.  Turns out, that was not the case at all.  I had very, very strong cravings.  Also, my bloating came back, which I think might be related to the sausage I ate most mornings.  By the end of the week, I decided to change what I was eating for breakfast to see if that was the case, and I think it was.

The question I get asked the most from people is how different I feel doing Whole30.

Whole30 Cravings Are Real

Okay, I know I said that I wasn’t really having strong cravings in my first week of Whole30, and I really didn’t.  But boy, on Day 10, the Whole30 cravings hit me HARD.  All I could think about was rice, and rice noodles, and how much I wanted Pad Kee Mao.  Rice is a weird thing for me to crave, because usually, I will crave bread.  On Days 10 and 11, though, I mainly wanted rice and rice products.  All I could think about was the texture of biting into those wide rice noodles.

I’ve tracked everything I could think of for my first week of Whole30, and I’ve broken out day by day how I felt, what I ate, and what exercise I did–and the dreams I had about food.  If you’re considering doing a Whole30, this is what the first week was like for me, what I ate, and how many calories I consumed.  I’m already feeling better!
