  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?

  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.

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
  9. Smartwater Sparkling is pretty good also.
  10. Yeah I want one of those logos. ;-)
  11. This one seems Whole30. In fact it has the Whole30 logo on the label: https://www.primalkitchen.com/products/organic-unsweetened-ketchup
