    trezkholl0806 reacted to missmary in getting lean and overeating   
    How tall are you Janey? Consider the possibility that 135 is a healthy weight for you (what felt good or healthy when you were much younger is not relevant). If you are at a healthy weight already, but try to "diet" it is natural for the body to respond with binge behavior. Follow Tom's advice and do a whole30, committing to meeting the template, at a minimum, three times per day. I suspect when you are really nourishing yourself it will be easier to control your response to "problem" foods.
     
    EDIT: I see you are 5'-8." YOU ARE NOT OVERWEIGHT. If you want to change your body, gain some muscle mass but please do not restrict your nutrition further.

    I think this is your opportunity to be creative. Take one of your regular recipes and make it paleo. What about Cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles? Sweet Potato hash ( I have them with eggs). Braised veggies, roast veggies, roast veggie soup. Kale chips, mushroom chips, Brussels sprout chips. How about unusual vegetables Kabocha squash, celery root, kohlrabi, spaghetti squash. Maybe you cook all of these already. I am not a chef so I am sure you can come up with many more vegetables than I can.

    I'm a little suprised no one has questioned your curriculum, but I will: it sounds as if you get to decide what recipes you teach and cook. Why not embrace whole30-style eating and cooking for your students as well? You could teach only vegetarian recipes without ever needing to touch a grain or legume. Your students would be healthier for it, and so would you.

    I prefer RX Bars and EPIC bars over Larabar, which are really high in sugar (and have very little protein).
     
    RX Bars are very similar to Larabars, they have dates, figs, plus egg white for protein. I like the Coffee Cacao flavor.
     
    EPIC bars are like a soft jerky bar. REALLY handy for traveling. The turkey + almond + cranberry flavor is Whole30 compliant.
     
    I always pack:
    a tin or two of sardines in water (really quite good), baby carrots olives (drain and put in a baggie) a mix of unsweetened coconut ribbons, macadamia nuts and a little dried fruit (goji berries or raisins). nut butter and coconut oil in individual packets (they sell them on Amazon).

    If you're travelling anywhere that fresh food may be an issue for quarantine, Lara Bars are a good fallback.
     
    They aren't high in protein, so take that into account.

    So I traveled to South Africa last week and I wanted to share with you guys what I did to make sure I would stay on track for the 15 hour flight. Full disclosure- I offroaded a bit while I was there but that's neither here nor there. (I wasn't actually doing a Whole30 during the trip but I still eat Whole30 style with very, very occasional offroading) Anyways, for the flight I planned out lunch and dinner. We'd take off just before lunch so I packed rolled up compliant deli turkey, carrots, tomatoes, and cashews. I put everything in a small tupperwear that I kept in my backpack. For dinner, which would be almost 10 hours after we left the house that morning I grilled a piece of chicken the night before and froze it. I put the frozen chicken in tupperware with some frozen veggies and let it thaw out for most of the flight. By dinner time it was defrosted and super delicious! The people sitting near us looked on with envy as they ate their revolting airplane food. 
     
    Cooking the chicken the night before and freezing it turned out perfectly so if you ever have a long flight that's definitely the way to go!

    trezkholl0806 reacted to missmary in Pre/Post-Workout Meal Suggestions?   
    I'm posting again, since it seems there were a bunch of unanswered questions on this thread. 
     
    PRE-WORKOUT, you want a small portion of protein and fat. minimal carbs, because the goal here is just to signal to the body that it is ok to start burning fat, not give the body easy carbs that it will use instead. When you start to become more flexible in what energy you use for exercise (the body fat vs. carbs you just ate) you will find endurance and performance improve dramatically, even if you don't need to use fat/lose weight. This recommendation is for everyone.
     
    POST-WORKOUT, you want a larger portion (1/2 palm to a palm) of protein, and optionally something carby (and glucose filled), like sweet potato, and minimal fat. This is intended to restore muscle glycogen and build new tissue in the window right after your workout when muscles are primed and particularly receptive to taking it up. This helps recovery as well. As Tom mentioned, if you feel good with just protein, that's ok. Glycogen will get restored as the day goes on and you eat your meals, but some people feel A LOT better if they get a hit of carbs right then. Rule of thumb would be: if you are trying to lose weight and feel good without post-WO carbs, then skip them. If you are trying to maintain or gain weight/and or you need carbs post-WO to feel good, then eat those. Always eat the protein.
     
    oh and the reason for low fat postWO is to get these foods digested as quickly as possible. Fat slows digestion, which is usually good, but not in this case.

    Hi all! This is my second time doing a whole30. The first time I prepared poorly, and only made it to day 19 before I dropped out. This time around I'm in it for the long haul, and have a great support system. I searched the following question, but didn't see anything, so forgive me if it's already been asked.
     
    Ok, but enough of all that. I play roller derby (in case that wasn't blaringly obvious per my sig ), and we have our yearly WFTDA testing on Tuesday, which is more difficult than running a marathon acording to our running derby girls. We all usually start to carb load a couple days before to max our glycogen levels in our muscles. This would usually include lots of rice (gasp!), bread (oh no!), and pasta (the horror!). Obviously all of that is out of the question. 
     
    Any ideas on how I can properly carb load for my testing without veering from whole30?
     
    Thanks!

    My thoughts, I'm not an expert. First thing, you run and running a race, so YES you are a runner :-)
     If you haven't been running long distances, I would not make any changes. A 15K is a decent distance, however, I personally don't think it's long enough to need to use dates, buddy fruit, bananas, etc. during the run. Your body should be able to handle the race without refueling. Again, this is just based on my personal experience. I would drink plenty of water and refuel post-race with protein/carb. 
     
    Good luck in your race! ;-)

    I  ran 20miles today and took along a Buddy Fruit Pouch. Basically it's pureed fruit (baby food). Very easy to eat while on the run. I never used gu, gels, blocks, gummies, etc before but knew it would be helpful to have something to help get me through the last few miles. My stomach reacted neutral, no different reactions and my run was GREAT! Was it the Buddy Fruit or the Whole30? ;-)  haha
     
    Has anyone else used Buddy Fruit? I looked at other brands, but they weren't very pure and natural. Just pureed fruit, no additives, preservatives, etc. Whole 30 complaint. :-)

    Dates stuffed with homemade nut butter. Drop the nut butter into a ziplock bag, cut off the corner and squeeze into each end of the pitted date. Flash freeze in a single layer, then wrap individually (or sets of 2) in wax paper. Keep frozen until you leave for your run, keep them in a ziplock bag during your run. The nut butter will ooze a bit so it helps to have any potential mess contained in a snack-size ziplock. They have been my saving grace during my long runs (currently training for a marathon, running 20 tomorrow).

    Runners - what do you eat *during* long training runs? This is my first day of Whole 30 and my half-marathon training mileage is starting to climb. Feeling intimidated - first long run is in 2 days.
     
    What are good substitutes for gu, shot blocks, etc?
     
    Easier to carry is better. I don't have a whole lot of room in my race belt to go lugging a sweet potato around with me.

    The white sweet potatoes are really mild and minimally sweet compared to the orange sweet potatoes and even the Japanese sweet potatoes.  My husband also won't eat anything orange that's cooked and doesn't think hot food should be sweet unless it's dessert, but I can get the white sweet potatoes past him if they are in soup or something, or if they are fried in coconut oil.  They still aren't his favorite, but he will eat them and they don't activate his gag reflex!  :-)

    That's funny because I was the exact opposite.  I never liked sweet potatoes as the ways I had always had them they were prepared in a sweet way!  I like them better prepared with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, rosemary, and paprika.   Obviously I like them  prepared certain ways more so than others but I now love SP!
     
    This is just a thought - it's a theory actually - I found that generally people don't like foods that they are naturally allergic to.  For instance.  I never particularly cared for cauliflower.  I would never outright turn it down (My mom never really had to fight me to eat veggies - I generally loved them) but during a whole 30 I noticed that cauliflower gave me some pretty severe stomach distress.  I have since discovered that my body doesn't handle the goitrogens terribly well.  They have to pared off with either a good portion of starchy veg or a double does of fat in order for my body to handle them well.  Cauliflower I had the worst reaction to so therefore there is no love lost for it being off the menu.  So if he likes carrots - feed him carrots.  Try parsnips as well.  Similar carrot taste.  You can try Celery root as well.  I find celery root mashed with sweet potato is quite nice.  The celery root mixes up the taste a bit.

    For me, sweet potatoes were an acquired taste when I started Paleo a year ago. I never really liked them before, but I tried to find ways to eat them that would be good.  I had to learn that sweet potatoes do not work as a "white" potato replacement for me.  the sweetness factor makes it difficult for me to consume them as a savory dish, in the same manner that I could with white potatoes.  In my transition, I decided to eat them in a way that made their sweetness an asset and that's how I learned to like them.  To this day, I still can't eat them in a hash or anything breakfast related that would have been a salty or savory dish.  It just doesn't go.  But, I can certainly eat sweet potatoes with cinnamon, ghee, nuts and/or coconut flakes (or any combo) and be ok with it b/c those flavors make sense to my palate.  Maybe instead of using the sweet potato as a way to substitute a way he would have eaten white potatoes, find ways that really showcase the sweet potato in is sweet flavor.

    yup. better a starchy veg than a fruit, but praxis project is right: if you must have fruit post-WO, go for a banana. What you are looking for is less fructose/more glucose although (bananas are about half and half glucose/fructose, which is high glucose for a fruit), to be honest, the reasons are escaping me at the moment. It has to do with how the various forms of sugar are processed in the liver or not processed in the liver, as the case may be.
     
    EDIT. thank you pub med: we conclude that fructose is a poor nutritional precursor for rapid glycogen restoration in muscle after exercise, but that both glucose and fructose promote rapid accumulation of glycogen in the liver
     
    YES. because fructose has to go through the liver first, it doesn't get to the muscles as quickly as glucose so you don't recover as well.
