  1. No I know I am not “supposed” to track my caloric intake, but I have and I’ve been well under 1200 and that worries me. Can it be explained why I shouldn’t be tracking my intake? And what ratio of fat to protein I should be shooting for.
  2. Hello! My name is April and I am excited to be on day 1 of my journey. I have a question about cooking with oils and wasn't sure where to post as it's not specifically related to cooking and recipes. As someone who used to "track macros" (count and keep track of calories and macronutrients), I can't help but think about the number of calories in coconut and olive oil. Yes, I know they're healthy but should I be concerned if I'm going from cooking with cooking spray to cooking with oils? I know the Whole30 isn't about weight loss but I also don't want to gain a ton of weight if I can avoid it. Thanks for your help! -April

    Post WOD Shake

    Hello everyone, I do Crossfit and workout 6 or 7 days a week. I also compete. I'm coming off a different nutrition challenge that didn't go quite as expected. However, I have gotten in the habit of no pre-WOD meal and only a post-WOD shake. I use egg white protein powder and fruit for my shake. The protein powder is egg whites and sunflower lecithin. Should I continue with this trend of no pre-WOD meal and only a post-WOD shake? Is the post-WOD shake whole30 compliant? If not, what alternatives should I be looking into? I plan on meal prepping prior to my comp in April. Any suggestions or recommendations, outside of bake a sweet potato and boil some eggs? Thank you!
  4. Hi, I am new to this and three days into my first Whole30. I know that it is probably too early for me to be worrying about the Whole30 as a diet, but I was wondering if my fats are too high. I am averaging 100-130g (I think it is grams- I use myfitnesspal to measure?) of fat per day. As much as I am confident these are healthy fats, (although a lot is coming from meat mince so maybe not?) is this too much? I just don't feel as light and un-fatty as I thought I would.
  5. Hi everyone! I've been a lurker here for a bit. My name is Christine and I've been researching Whole30 for a while. I have not committed to a full 30 yet but testing the waters to see how we'll I can stick to it. I have previously been logging food on My Fitness Pal, and while I don't ALWAYS do it, it does help me be accountable. Anyway, I tried a day of good, compliant eating with good food logging yesterday. Does anyone else do this? I am a big believer in healthy fats, but I was WAY high on fat intake yesterday. What I ate was- 3 eggs with salsa, kale, and part of an avocado for breakfast. A mango with coconut flakes and cashews for snack, a hard boiled egg, watermelon and compliant minestrone soup for lunch. Dinner was ground turkey, peppers, and a sweet potato, and I had more watermelon and almonds before bed. I know my fruit and nut intake is high and I did not get enough protein. Yesterday was not my "best" day but i prepped a lot of food and hope to do better. I'm concerned about the fat ought, and not sure if I really should be or not. What do you think?

    Hey all, I'm at day 35 (aiming for w100) and I know you're not meant to calorie count during the whole 30, but I've just plugged in the last few days of eating to see where my macros are sitting after a particularly lacklustre crossfit session tonight. I wanted to check what kind of a mix I'm sitting at with my new eating habits and see if there is room for improvement anywhere. I wondered if anyone has recommendations for a suggested macro mix for someone who is pretty active (a bike commuter + 3-4 crossfit sessions, a run and a bikram class a week), but with quite a bit of body fat to lose? I've been lacking a bit of discipline and sneaking in a bit too much fruit and a few too many nuts lately and I want to get these under control and make sure I'm getting all the fuel I need. I'd like to be able to tweak my intake slightly to maximise my performance, but I'd also love to start slimming down. Would love any advice! Thanks!
  7. I know that tracking calories and portions during the W30 was as simple as using our hand size and our plates. However, now that I am moving forward with the lifestyle, I am finding it necessary (especially in situations where treats like dark chocolate or eating out is involved) to use a food tracking system to help me stay accountable. Some questions: Is there a ratio of fat/protein/carbs that is recommended to keep us as close to the health level the W30 does? What percentages of each do you recommend? And if it is a "what works best for you approach", how does one figure that out? Where would I begin? What do you think of Mark Sisson's Carbohydrate Curve? Also, I know that overall calories do matter, right? I believe there have been some posts about making sure not to eat as if we are a vacuum Lol. Is there a good way to figure out a range that works? Any tips you can give would be appreciated
