Hi! I need some help! Any comments, advice, or suggestions would be very appreciated! I'm finding it difficult to stick with the meal timelines (food every 4-5 hours). I have been having 3 meals 1 snack, or 4 smaller meals, plus a small pre-workout and post-workout for days when I workout. I mostly do high-intensity interval training, but also I run or erg sometimes. Here is what I eat (roughly): Breakfast: 2 eggs + 1/2 cup while egg + a fist-size ish of leftover veggies (zucchini, mushroom, onion, red bell pepper, kale), a little bit of shredded chicken or turkey (leftover) Lunch: 1/4 sweet potato or potato + veggies would pile up my plate (kale, zucchini, mushroom, onion, red bell pepper, kale, asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli) + protein (2 palm size of ground beef or fish, or 1 chicken breast) + 1/2 avocado + 1 tsp olive oil + 2-3 pieces of either cashews or walnuts Snack: (1/4 sweet potato + a little bit of shredded chicken, or 1/2 can of tuna + 1/4 avocado) OR (1 apple gala + 1 tbsp almond butter + a few blueberries + 5-7 almonds/pecans/walnuts) OR (chia pudding with 1 tbsp chia, 2/3 cup of almond milk, and 5-7 almonds/pecans/walnuts, and 1/2 dates) Pre-WO: chicken and avocado as per template, 1/2 banana and 1/2 tbsp almond butter if it's a morning workout, or just almonds if I'm rushing Post-WO: compliant deli (a few slices) and 1/4 sweet potato Dinner: same as lunch.
Puckertoe posted a topic in Join the Whole30We have had building going on five months and it's the most stressy event to cope with. Builders need biscuits and tea and constant attention. I have put on a stone in that time. So starting today I begin a Whole 30. I did two in 2016 and have managed to do well with food until this summer. Now I need to get a grip girl. Looking forward to some disciplined food choices.
Hi, I have been on the Whole30 for 16 days. I know we are not supposed to wight ourselves, but I did. Weight-loss was not my #1 goal...but certainly a hope. I've gained 70lbs over the last 5 years. I would really like to work my way back down. I have stayed the same weight. I stated this past week going on a hike 3 days a week and yoga 4 days a week. What I am wondering is if I'm still not following the meal template accurately. This is what my usual meals look like: Breakfast: 1 coffee with a splash of coconut milk 3 scrambled eggs with a splash of coconut milk (cooked in Ghee) half a fresh red pepper half avocado half tomato a few small slices of cured salmon This breakfast keeps me full generally until lunch. I eat between 730-8am. I do feel hungry for lunch around 1130 (always do), but I am trying to hold out and if I'm busy it holds me over until 1230/1pm. I think the hunger is a boredom thing. Lunch: Dinner left overs or salad if I forget lunch at home. Dinner: protein- shrimp, calamari, or chicken/turkey (I am working towards pescatarian) Usually 1 palm but sometimes two half a fresh red pepper half avocado half tomato Sweet potato or regular potato- Usually fried in a pan out cut up in small wedges and baked with olive oil. I'm thinking maybe a little too much of this? Also between a palm or two per sitting. I cook everything in Ghee, and I use a bunch. I'm wondering if this and the potato might not actually be follow the template. I will also throw a plantain in here and there. I've been trying not to snack, and have been avoiding fruits. Like I said I cook with a lot of ghee. Maybe I am taking it too far? Thank you!
