    Fat adaptation length of time

    Ok I completed the w30 including 10 days of fast track. No sign of any tiger blood, felt good while sitting around but workouts suffered in that there was no intensity available which you said was normal. Then I went on vacation and completely off the rails. My workouts felt magnificent again. Now I'm back home and in the midst of training for my "B race", I have 7 weeks until race day. After that I'll be training for my "A race". I've been living concepts that I learned during w30 like how to eat pre and post workout, not buying food that has sugar or grains but at the same time not being strict with asking what ingredients are in meat/salad dressings at restaurants. Am I still working toward fat adaptation? Am I slowing down the process even more by possibly sometimes eating things that contain sugar? Is being fat adapted a spectrum or is it more like either you are or you're not? I can still do fasted workouts but can't produce performance during this transitioning period so can you tell me how much time it should take and whether I should just keep fueling with carbs then work on this concept again during off season, maybe by doing a whole30-60 or so? Thanks for any advice
  2. I'm on Day 17 of my first Whole30. Endurance athlete coming off a fairly hard core sugar addiction. Had the flu like feeling for the first bit of time, feel good now outside of workouts. I'm just about to start training season again but my energy reserves have not returned. At first I was a bit panicky about have no power, speed, fast twitch action so i may have eaten too much starchy carb in my first few days but think I'm learning I should keep those mainly for post workout with the protein hit. I've been sticking with the 1 boiled egg and 1/2 handful of nuts 1 hour before workout for the past 10 days or so. Do I need to be more patient and keep going with what I'm doing? Can I refine my routine to help the process get where it needs to be so I can start training again?
  3. First timer on day 11. Accidentally drank pool water during a few hard sets today. Do I start over?
