  1. I eat my prework out food. Then I do my quick drive home. If I don't work out - what was the point of eating that... Food is fuel! and that fuel needs to be used for its intended purpose!!!!
  2. I will be starting my first Whole30 tomorrow and I'm a bit lost on the whole pre/post workout meal suggestions. My current schedule is: 5:45am - Wake Up 6:30am - out the door (half hour drive to my box & job) 7am - WOD 8am - shower for work 8:30am - work until 5pm Before Whole30, I've tended to eat a banana or protein bar before my morning WOD, then nothing but coffee until lunch (sometimes a protein shake Post workout). So my question is, should I be eating my meal 1 pre-wo and then like hard boiled eggs/banana post wo? Or should I have hb eggs pre-wo and take my meal 1 with me to work to eat (which is 30-45+ min after I finish the WOD). Honestly, eating a pre-wo, post-wo, AND meal 1 within a 2 1/2 hour time span seems like A LOT of food compared to what I'm used to. And I only have half an hour to shower and get to work as it is... throwing a post workout snack in will mean eating in the 5 minute drive from box to office, then eating my meal soon after arriving at work. Advice please =)

    When to eat what?

    Hi there! I'm new to the Whole30 and need some help finalizing my meal plans. There's a ton of info and I'm a bit overwhelmed with trying to read anymore. I generally work out up to 5x a week, otherwise my job is mostly sedentary. On the days that I work out, I'm wondering what some suggestions are for Pre and Post workout meals. (I've tried looking up ideas and have been left a little uninspired and unsure). Also, I had planned to have a serving of sweet potatoes, protein (meat) and eggs with my breakfast on most mornings, in order to satiate me throughout the day since I am usually active and have a fast metabolism. Is this a good time to have sweet potatoes and eggs? And, if so, I'm assuming this will influence what I have for pre and post workout (I assume I shouldn't have too many servings of eggs, and I also don't want to eat more than one serving of sweet potatoes). Any suggestions for specific pre and post workout meals would be wonderful, as well as whether my breakfast idea is good or could be improved. For lunch I plan to switch between compliant turkey burgers with guac and mustard, a side salad, and a serving of fruit, and an Italian sausage spaghetti squash bake with a serving of fruit. My dinner will consist of lots of veggies, salad, and a protein choice. Is it okay to eat frozen bananas with coconut and almond butter as an after dinner snack when/if you become hungry (I often feel very hungry about 2 hours after dinner on nights I work out and find that I need more food).
  4. Hey y'all This is my second whole 30. The first time I did the program it was great. I was doing it to change my eating habits more than trying to lose weight. I would like to know what some of the guys are eating pre and post workout during their whole 30 program. Also, I seem to be losing too much weight. How do I maintain/ gain muscle mass while following the whole 30 and lifting in the gym? It seems like if I do not eat a lot of carbs then I shed so much weight, more than I would like to. My whole reason for this program is to live a healthy and wholesome lifestyle. Thanks, Michael.
  5. Greetings all, I am a little embarrassed to admit this, but I actually stopped working out when I started w30 (now on day 17) because I couldn't figure out the whole pre/post workout eating. So I have two things I need help with because I REALLY miss working out. 1. I hate hard boiled eggs. I've tried. I can't get around the sliminess of the white or the taste of the yolk. I hoped it would change as I got into this, but it hasn't. Some non-egg ideas to get a fat and a protein? 2. I am not a morning person. I never will be. My problem is it is just me picking up the little one and getting her fed and put down after work. By the time all that is done on a good day it is between 6:30 and 7. That means I eat a pre-wo snack and then work out and I'm not eating supper until 9:30 or 10 at night! Which is when I need to be getting into bed. Does anyone have some clever ideas on how to schedule all of this differently? It also means literally the only things I will do at night is feed my toddler, eat a snack, workout, eat a snack, prepare food, eat a meal, clean the kitchen, go to bed. This is not practical. Help? TIA!

    Larabars - When to eat?

    So I'm trying to figure out when to incorporate larabars. Being as they are higher in calories and natural occurring sugars, I'm thinking earlier in the day. But how do you guys eat them? How do you make them a meal? I'm on day 1 of Whole30 and still sorting things out. I got these as a source for my sweet tooth, and saw many blogs that recommend them. I workout at 5 am, so maybe as pre workout? Post workout? Breakfast? I'm not sure, what do you guys do?
  7. I just finished my first whole30! I plan on continuing with it. I noticed my energy is more stable throughout the day but not more energy when I run/lift/workout. I actually felt a little slower. I noticed something that said not to eat fruit before a workout?! And not carbs?? Help! Need advice! I've alwayyyyyys eaten a banana before a workout. Sometimes with a spoonful of almond butter. Don't we need carbs before a workout? If you burn carbs and fat during a workout, and you haven't had carbs right before, don't you burn muscle?? I've always been taught to eat sugar and carbs like a banana before a workout. My goal is to lose about 4% fat and gain 5 lbs more muscle.
