  1. It really is easy to eat whole30 and paleo and train for endurance events! I started a whole30 on January 1 and have stuck to the diet for the most part even after my 30 days. I trained for and completed an Ironman eating this way. I got to the point where I could run 10-12 miles on just water and not feel any loss of energy. Being Fat adapt helps. I had to eat a lot of sweet potatoes, 2 a day some days 3. I ate 3 eggs, spinach and a sweet potato every morning. I was working out 16-20 hours a week and no issues. Just make sure you eat enough carbs, sweet potatoes, squash, beets, carrots,etc and plenty of fat.
  2. Pre WO-Post WO meals, tri training and autoimmune protocol

    I did my whole 30 in January and also started training for an Ironman January 1st. I am on week 14 of training at 13 hours a week of training. My favorite post workout meal is a sweet potato and chicken breast! It is perfect!! It is now April 3 and I would say I am 90% Whole 30 and 95% Paleo still and I do feel great even at these training levels. I only add in workout nutrition (fake Food) one workout a week my long bike run, today 4 hours. I have discovered how important the recovery is this time around and am actually eating something preworks that are even at 4:30 am. The pre work out is tuff and it is individual, I can not eat an egg and go run 11 miles at 4:30 in the morning. I do a half a banana with a scoop of Almond Butter. I seem to be able to tolerate that! I have never recovered better in all my years of training as I am now with eating this way!! Good Luck, what race are you doing? Lake Placid for us!
  3. Gluten or Alcohol - So Sick

    I think it was one of two things, that I had a Blue Moon - Wheat Beer and it was just too much or that I got some sort of food bug. I was sick until I went to bed the next night. CRAZY!!!
  4. Gluten or Alcohol - So Sick

    OMG - Day 40 and doing some reintroductions to decide what is worth it on occasions......had 2 beers and was sick all night and all day today, threw up this morning, do you think it was the gluten or the alcohol? This is such a bummer!!! I

  6. Fever - What Can I take?

    My whole family is sick and my husband and I are on day 24 I am not worried about the food but I am starting to feel the ache of a fever and both kids are running fevers. What can I take? Tylenol? Advil? Motrin? I will have to take something if I get a fever.

  10. Hydration and Fuel for Long Workouts/Races

    I am nearing the end of my Whole30 and trying to figure out my plan of attach as my training sessions start to increase. Trying to figure out how to replace electrolytes and fuel long training post whole30. I do not want to have to use fake food but an Ironman is a long way and eating real food is not not an option, my digestion will just not work. I also lose a lot of salt so I have to make sure I take in a TON of sodium on big training days and race day. I posted on the Athlete forum but most people posted off Whole30 ideas. I would really like to hear what Whole9 thinks about Electrolyte replacement and fueling an Ironman in a Whole9 philosophy. All I can find is this post and it starts with "On hydration: Unless you're doing long, nonstop competitions like triathlons or marathons (where you certainly need to rehydrate during the event), there's simply no justification for substituting a supplement for real food and water." So I am the person that falls in the "unless" so curious on this ? http://whole9life.com/2010/08/replenishment-drinks/
  11. TMI POST...Constipation. Help!

    Same here very regular and now not so much, this is frustrating because I feel bloated all the time since it is not a morning thing every day. For some reason if I heat up a hot water with a little coconut oil and coconut milk and a dash of cinnamon it helps! I have also tried to cut out nuts.
  12. Day 16 - Bloated at night and still very tired in afternoon

    I am getting 8 hours most nights. Thanks for your suggestions! Yes I saw Toms posts about cutting fat and am working to cut nuts 100%, I was so mad today that I had to eat the Larabar! I just feel worn out mid day!
  13. I am on day 16 and I am feeling good, workouts are good, I feel like I can go 3-4 hours without meals and that is new but I am feeling bloated every night. Plus I feel exhausted mid afternoon everyday still. What can I do to help the bloating and to help being sooooo tired. The reason I really did this was to help with the afternoon tiredness, this has always been an issue for me. Here is my log and what I am up too. http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/5913-mistie-and-the-husband-new-year-first-whole-30-and-ironman-training/
  14. Do the yoga, I did a 45 day journey and I have to tell you it is the best I looked and felt EVER. 1 hour in the morning M-W before the kids woke up then Sat and Sun I would try for a 1.5 hour session. Amazing. Funny is I am a triathlete and I work out so so so hard all the time and I never even get close to looking as good as I did when I was just doing yoga. Training for an Ironman right now and am missing my yoga! It makes you also more in tune with your body. I do Vinyasa yoga check out free podcasts on iTunes. Great way to do it at home!
  15. Natural Calm

    So I have no problem falling asleep but I need something to help reduce stress and anxiety during the day. Would this help?
