  1. Thank you for all the suggestions! I had a hard boiled egg prework out and it turned out fine and kicked A** in my workout, so I will continue this. I really need to bring post workout fuel with me to the gym. This will take some getting used to, but I truly want to turn this body into a fat burning, hormonaly balanced machine!!
  2. Hi there. I am begining my 4th Whole 30, and sad to say I've never knocked out the snacks or mini meals. I am up at 4:30 to teach a 5 AM class and then workout at 6 AM. I get home and get ready ASFAP to leave the house at 8. I currently only have breakfast at 7:30 AM. I have not previously eaten a pre-workout or and post-workout, but really want to see how my body reacts. I do CrossFit 5 days a week, so know my body is under stress, and maybe not eating enough, even though it seems like that's all I do. I cannot go more than 3 hours between meals without feeling hungry. This has been my habit for years though, but I am really interested in losing body fat, which hangs around my middle. My meals feel substantial because I always feel REALLY full, but three hours later I am hungry. Or maybe I just need to be okay with being hungry for awhile before I eat. My goal is fat loss and hormonal balance. I LOVE my workouts, which make my days go SOOO much better, but I know some days I am dragging and more hungry. So I am going to try to do 3 days on with 1 day off for proper rest. I am going to add a pre-workout snack, but still am struggling with how to handle my post workout/breakfast meal. My breakfast is within 30 minutes of post workout, so should I exclude fat from this meal? Typical day looks like this Meal 1 - 2 eggs cooked in coconut oil, 1 chicken sausage, spinach and 1/2 sweet potatoe, with 1/4 avocado Snack - veggies Meal 2 - BIG chicken salad with veggies, apple chunks, protein, 1/4 avocado, and 2 tbsp olive oil and vinegar dressing. Snack if needed - apple with almonds, compliant hotdog, larabar Meal 3 - Beef and cabbage cooked in coconut oil with 1/2 avocado or HUGE taco salad, with salsa and generous serving of guacomole. I understand that my past eating habits are keeping me stuck, so I am ready to make necessary changes (even though that is mentally scary, lol) sorry for such a LONG post :-/
