  1. As per those other threads, it's probably not necessary for the majority of people, but if you're doing really intense training, then pre/post-workout calories could be helpful.
  2. See also https://forum.whole30.com/topic/57089-new-pre-and-post-workout-guidelines-has-anyone-tried-it/
  3. Bread and dairy are huge insulin/hunger drivers, so it's possible your overall calorie intake collapsed as you mentioned originally. You could try smoothies to just drink some extra calories, or dried fruit. Smoothies are historically discouraged a bit for exactly the reason that it's easier to drink calories than eat them.
  4. What did you have to eliminate from your diet in order to be Whole30?
  5. What are you doing with eggs - egg white protein shakes or something? In terms of nutrition, whole eggs aren't too far off from meat.
  6. Epic seems pretty good on the humane meat question - why are you worried about them? Chomps is another good option - my favorite. Both are on: https://whole30.com/whole30-approved/ As per some other recent threads, probably not worth stressing too much over pre/post workout food.
  7. So... potato is allowed on Whole 30 - you're just supposed to stop with all the chips and fries: https://whole30.com/new-whole30/ Once you start eating more real food, it seems pretty easy to stay on a mostly paleo track. If you're like most people you won't feel as good eating junk.
  8. It's probably worth considering that for almost everyone, the best workout is the one you will DO. So, if you enjoy a muscle-group split or always-full-body routine more, pick that one.
  9. If fitness is a hobby and you're not struggling to keep weight on, I'm not sure why you think you need a preworkout meal for running. Have you tried just eating after? Post-workout nutrition spike for recovery/rebuild seems more important there.
  10. You're saying you run in the morning before work, and then hit the gym in the evening after work? Are you struggling to get enough calories for the day?
  11. Chomps are definitely "power fuel" in my mind, also Nick's Sticks.
  12. Chomps are definitely great. Also That's It bars. Also the Paleo Traileo blog is all about eating paleo things while hiking/camping, and they reviewed True Primal soup here: http://paleotraileo.blogspot.com/2017/11/oregon-elk-hunt-true-primal-100-grass.html
  13. There was another thread about this recently, and I think this hits on my concern from that other thread. The OP mentions a training regimen that adds up to 11 hours a week. That sounds REALLY high, especially for someone that seems to not be an advanced high-level athlete. With that level of training you need all the calories you can get. You can't afford to skip pre-workout meals, or you're probably going to crash and burn. The new guidelines I think are trying to mitigate that. But it might be worthwhile to reconsider the total amount of intense exercise that requires that additional
  14. Smartwater Sparkling is pretty good also.
