I am on Day 10 of Whole 30 and I want to know if I am eating the right amount. I know that snacking isn't really compliant but I do need to have some kind of "pre-workout" so my workouts don't suffer. I workout approximately 5-6 times a week and it consists of rigorous HIIT/Lifting. I average losing 900-ish calories at each session. I do give myself one or two rest days per week. Below is a "normal" meal plan: 1. Breakfast: Med size sweet potato (topped with a tablespoon of almond butter) with 1 egg/1 egg white with spinach and four strawberries or 1/4 cup of blueberries 2. Lunch: Caulifower rice with coconut chicken/veggies and 1 small cutie 3. Snack: 5-6 Nuts and a couple of spoons of chia seed pudding 4. Dinner: Large salad plate with tons of veggies, avocado, beef tips and an egg 5. 1 date I guess I'm confused how much I can snack before working out?
Hello everyone! Whole30 enjoyer, first time forum writer. I did the whole30 from January-March. During that time I was introducing my workout routine to heavier weights and, thought feeling great, was struggling. I broke out of the whole30 in April and really enjoyed a lot of progress in my weight lifting. The protein supplements that are not whole30 approved seem to give my body a boost better than the approved. Unfortunately I completely fell off the band wagon and began to eat utter junk again (I stopped going to the local Taco Bell because the cashier new me by my first name). I feel awful and restarted the Whole30 again yesterday (8/1/2017) and want to continue that diet for as long as I'm able (sans the occasional social event), but I love lifting and don't see that great of results when partaking in this diet. Does anyone have any advice? I really want to tighten my (figurative) belt here calorie, carb and jiggly stomach wise. Thanks in advance and looking forward to learning from you! Best, Pat
ginjaswag posted a topic in Join the Whole30HELLOOOO all! Been checking out this site for pretty much the entire day and I keep finding more and more great stuff!!! Tomorrow will be day one. honestly....im scared. I am a pretty healthy person. but I can already feel myself getting overwhelmed with the whole paleo thing. The idea of NONE of something freaks me out. I have been looking up tons of recipes which is why I think im overwhelmed. Im horrible at keeping things simple. im thinking for the first week I will just eat very basic meals. A few questions! I am training for a marathon. I read about the PWO meals. So does that mean on days I run 5 to 15 miles and or lift-Have an extra snack before AND after??? are we only supposed to have 3 meals no snacks?? Also- I work in a hospital and my days are LONG 7 am to 7 pm Im very worried about when to eat my meals, the times. and should I have snacks?? I leave my house at 630 am and get home around 8 pm Im sorry if these questions have been asked before. Theres so much info on this site I may not have stumbled upon it yet. But if you have any ANYTHING to tell me, offer me, guide me, its all welcomed!
Emilydmac posted a topic in Troubleshooting your Whole30Hi Everyone! I am looking for some help. I am under fairly extreme stress, not the bad kind, just the 'this is what my life is like for the next year and a half so lets make the best of it' kind. I think it is responsible for a LOT of my issues right now (such as: severe constipation and abdominal pain, bloat, tiredness, skin ailments, etc FYI I have IBS as well, but never this bad). I am on the go all day, all week; during which time I lift weights 3-4x a week, and do the elliptical 2-3x a week. I work full time and go to school full time. I have just purchased a startup company which is demanding a lot of my non-existent free time. I am in a long term relationship (which is joyful, but all relationships need tending to!) and I am doing a 100% compliant Whole(something, but more than 30) which takes a good amount of energy. I feel as though my symptoms and general well-being would benefit greatly by stress reduction, and more time for my parasympathetic nervous system to rest/digest which it is currently not doing AT ALL. Does anyone have any suggestions of things I can do to take some stress off of my body? Activities? Things I should eat/not eat to improve the IBS symptoms? Meditations? A Sample Day: Breakfast: 1/2 a sweet potato, Several Handfuls of Baby Spinach, 6 Mushrooms, 1/2 onion, and a compliant Turkey Sausage all sauteed in Coconut Oil Lunch: A load of Baby Spinach, 1 Tin of Sardines in Oil, Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette Post Workout (if I lift): 1 tin of Tuna and *maybe* a kiwi or a half a sweet potato Dinner: Salmon Filet with 1/2 bunch of kale sauteed with garlic and ~1 cup of roasted butternut squash Thanks Everyone! Much Appreciated!
