    Hello, I am a 25 year old male that has a title amongst his friends of being the healthiest, unhealthy person. During the day I would eat a bountiful variety of veggies, fruits, and legumes with an occasional meal involving lean meat. Drinking anywhere from 120 fl oz to 200 fl oz depending on my training. At night I would binge on moose tracks ice cream, oreos, an obnoxious amount of bread, and many other unhealthy meals. I felt like I had lost control of my impulses which is why I started the whole 30. I've been an athlete my entire life, meaning I have engaged in at least 20 hours a week (on average) of HIGH intensity training . My current obsession is trail running and typically will run any where from 3 miles to 24 miles with 600ft-6000ft vert gain. My concern is that I am not fueling my body with a well rounded diet. Today is day 2 of the whole30 and I went for a 5 mile run with a 20 mile bike ride (10 miles to get there and 10 miles to get home). I nearly passed out on my bike ride home and am trying to understand if it is because I am going through withdrawals, if I am not eating the right food for long events that demand my HR to be around 150-180 for extended periods of time, or if I am not eating enough calories (I believe this is it). This morning I ate 3 eggs, 2 cups of cooked cabbage, 1 cup cooked swiss chard, 3 garlic cloves, and half a sweet potato. After my run I ate a very similar meal minus the eggs and found my stomach cramping to the point that I wanted to pull over and feel sorry for myself hahaha. I look forward to hearing your guy's input. Thank you so much!
