Whole30 Challenge: Day 3

2 things I’ve noticed since starting Whole30: hunger and dry eyes! I suspect both problems can be remedied by eating more carbs (currently having ~20g carbs per day). My primary goal for Whole30 isn’t to lose weight, so I’m not going to be super strict on the macro specifics.

However, as the challenge went on, I realized I… Continue reading Whole30 Challenge
