I have been eating strict Whole30 (~95% compliant) for nearly 8 months now. It changed my life. A new problem has arisen however. 2 months ago I started crossfit again after over a year off. I was also working a desk job during this time. I left the job shortly after starting crossfit, and recently I have begun to push harder on workouts the last 2-3 weeks. I am completely wiped out. Brain feels like mush, I am sleeping longer than normal, sometimes much longer (11 hrs last night), yet I still feel tired and groggy upon waking. I feel like my body should be adapted to this activity by now, it doesn't feel like the normal "starting-a-new-workout-program sleepiness". I've done crossfit on and off for 4 years and have never felt like this. Which leads me back to diet. Any ideas here? Am I not eating enough carbs? I am constantly, ravenously hungry yet I eat a ton of fat and am most certainly fat adapted to some degree. I literally cannot eat any cleaner and I know I'm getting adequate rest, which is why I'm stumped. Any suggestions would be awesome!
RosieMB posted a topic in Troubleshooting your Whole30Pre-Whole30 I was still getting back into shape with running, doing 10.5 min-miles with average heart rate between 145-150. Yesterday and today my workouts were awful, I'm sure it's because of reduced blood sugar. Doing 12 (!) min-miles with average heart rate 150-155 and felt like I was going to die. Wondering why my heart is working harder, is it because it has to pump more blood since the blood sugar is lower? Suggestions, please? Day 3 breakfast 2 eggs 1 banana 1 smoothie - (spinach, pineapple, pear, maca powder) - I know these are not recommended, but did to raise blood sugar before running lunch 1/2 avocado 3 oz. turkey breast 1/2 c. cauliflower 1 cup romaine lettuce 1/4 c. homemade salsa 6 cashews snack 12 cashews sugar snap peas with sunshine sauce (sunflower butter and coconut milk, primarily) dinner 4 oz. tuna steak asparagus 1 c. strawberries Day 4 (today) breakfast sweet potato quiche (sweet potato + eggs) 1 smoothie (spinach, pineapple, blackberries, nut mixture) - again to raise blood sugar before working out
