Hi there, I am on day 10 of the Whole30 elimination and going strong, but I have a question below. I am having a very hard time eating all of the meals required on the days that I workout at OTF (Orange Theory). Here is what my day has looked like to date: Wake up - 6:30 Eat Pre-WO snack 7:30: 2 eggs, 1/2 handful macadamia nuts Workout - 8:30 - 9:30 Eat Post-WO bonus meal - 10:30 - 4 oz turkey, root veggies Eat Meal 1 - 11:30 - 5-6 oz protein or 3 eggs (equivalent), 1-1.5 cups veg, 1-2 Tbsp oil or handful of nuts, 1 sml plum Eat Meal 2 - 2:30-3:00 - 5-6 oz protein, Salad Greens or 1 cup veg, 1-2 Tbsp oil or nuts, handful cherries Eat Meal 3 - 7:00-7:30 - 5-6 oz protein, 1-2 cup veg/starchy potato, 1-2 Tbsp oil or 1/4 cup coconut shavings, maybe sml amount of fruit* *Note: Because I do OTF 5 times per week (and reading It starts with food, I am incorporating fruit with each major meal). I am simply not hungry for the next meal and fitting it in because I am told to. :) What I would like to do is either replace the Post-WO Bonus with Meal 1 or make Meal 1, 2, and 3 smaller (i.e. 3-4 oz Protein, .5-1 cup veg/potato and fat the same). Suggestions on this approach and which is a better option?
Hi I am new to whole 30 I am on day 7. Yeah me!!! I am trying to be better about adding more fat to my diet cause I was very restrictive before. I read eating 3 large meals every 5 hours is better then 3 meals and snacking, also that eating fruit with nuts is better. Sooo my question is..am I eating to much!! This was prepared knowing I was going to go for a 3-4 mile jog/walk. Here is what I ate for breakfast: 2 eggs with one yolk, 1/2 tbs of clarified butter, half of large avocado, 1 compliment sausage (160 calories) and a blood orange. After workout: 1 Apple with packet of almond butter (160 calories) Lunch: 1 sausage (160 calories) side salad, compliment 2 tbs honey mustard, compliant guacamole (120 calories) carrots, half small sweet potato dinner: Half spaghetti squash, ground turkey (handful) Brussel sprouts, half sweet potato possibly fruit with dinner* cravings are rough right now for sugar! My goal is to feel the best I can on whole 30 but I would also like to loose weight for my wedding in 8 months. Thank you all! Hope you have a beautiful day!!!
