Hello all! I am on day10 of round1 and my yesterday I had awesome energy and a positive attitude and today I was so tired I came home and took a 2 hour nap! I'm a teacher so I'm pretty active and I workout 6 times a week sometimes twice. This includes cardio in the morning and a lift in the evening but normally 1.5-2hrs daily! They are intense lifts and normally HIIT cardio or steady state. I am just curious if I'm eating too much (which is what it seems) or not enough. Sometimes I find that I'm hungrier in the afternoon around my workouts and in the evenings. I've been trying to add more fats to my earlier meals so I don't get crazy in the evening. Heres an an example of a days eating which is pretty typical everyday. M1-handful chicken sausage, handful butternut squash, mixed stir fry veggies, 3eggs, 1/2 avocado M2-1 small beef burger, 1slice bacon,tomato, 1-1/4 avocado, Brussels sprouts, carrots, 1 egg Preworkout - 3 eggs, 2-servings mayo Post workout-1.5 serving shredded pork, greens M3- 1 serving chicken, coconut aminos, shredded cole slaw, 3-4thumbs mayo Thanks for any advice!:)
Hello! My name is Caroline, and I'm a new member of the Whole30 program. In fact, today is my first day of Whole30. I'm seeking the wisdom of those with experience in maintaining athletic performance while doing Whole30. Any information, advice, or suggestion would be most appreciated. I joined CrossFit last week, and I love it. Though I haven't done every workout RX, I have enjoyed the atmosphere, the competitive nature of the program, the supportive camaraderie, and the sweat. I have been doing CrossFit 5 days/week and completing the WODS. I'm also running 2 days/week. Though I'd like to work up to more run days, I'm also trying to help my body recover. This brings me to my question: what tips do you have for someone who is trying to maintain athletic performance while completing the Whole30? Thank you for your time! Best, Caroline
Things had been going along swimmingly with my Whole 40 (decision made based on the days in the Lenten season which is when I plan on doing this every year). But last week I began to notice a decline in my functioning. I started nodding off throughout the day again, a problem that had all but vanished during my first week, and my focus and productivity became poorer. It has gotten hard to get out of bed in the mornings even following 7-9 hours of sleep and I am feeling hungry much sooner after meals than I was before. I gave the benefit of the doubt that we all can have "down days," but it has been several days. Why after working so hard and doing so well do I suddenly feel as though I'm back where I started?
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!
