I am looking for ideas for my pre and post workout “meals”? Mainly pre-workout...most of what I’ve read suggests hard boiled eggs. However, when I work out first thing in the morning just the thought of a hard boiled egg makes me want to throw up! Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! This is day 1 for me and so far, so good!
SillyLittleLightBulbs posted a topic in Whole30 for athletesHey guys! I'm about to start my first ever whole 30 on Tuesday! I'm super excited and anxious! I've never done anything like this before so I'm very hopeful! Ok so, I haven't been exercising lately and I've never done it routinely. I want to start finally though! I'm worried that I might like...overdue it and freak my body out by doing both of these huge changes at once! I was thinking for the first 10 days that maybe I would just go really light on the exercise? What do you guys think? Also if my exercise is planned on being light should my pre-workout food be fairly small? And if I do it first thing in the am, would it be ok for my post workout to just be my breakfast too? Or should I do a post workout meal and then do breakfast like..30 min..or an HR later? I won't always have enough time in the am to do this I think....idk..I'm probably just over thinking this whole thing. But if anyone has any advice or suggestions I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
I wake up at 5am and then practice yoga at 6am. For pre-workout I'm planning on having a fried egg or almonds. I need ideas for light post-workouts. I don't like sweet potatoes, besides I don't think I need starchy foods for post workout since yoga is not as intense as crossfit. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Can my post-workout be a coconut water (while I'm driving to the office)? And at around 8:30am I will be eating my egg muffins (w/veggies and chicken sausage) with some steamed broccolli.
Hi friends! I'll be starting my second Whole30 on January 1st. I have two things I need to clarify. 1. On the meal template it says "add fat in the following recommended amounts per meal" and lists healthy fats. Do we pick one of those, two, three? Is there a limit? 2. My day typically looks like this: -Wake up around 6am, drink water, eat breakfast, drink coffee -Have lunch around noon -Work 9am-5pm, then workout 6:30 to 7:30pm (I typically do yoga, TRX or a yoga-based fitness class) -Go home and eat dinner afterwards I know you're supposed to eat a pre and post-workout meal, but for me, it's A LOT of food crammed in to a short period of time after work/before bed. I'm not worried about eating a pre-workout meal, but since I workout so late in the afternoon, it seems like I don't have time to fit in a post-workout meal. Suggestions? Thanks fam!
