  1. I have two workouts tonight, 4-5, 5:30-6:30ish, is it acceptable to have a larabar in between? I've seen in past forums larabars are almost discouraged because it might be used as a substitute for something worse. Would it be better to just wait till after my last workout and have a big protein filled meal? My first workout is weight training, so I assumed it would be smart for me to eat something. What do I do...?? Thanks everyone!
  2. This is my first post in the Whole30 Forum, after hours of reading other blogs online to help answer my question. Figured I'd try this out instead to get some help!! I just finished my 3rd Whole30, after going off the deep-end after my 2nd one by binging on sweets. I was determined to do this right and change my lifestyle once and for all. The first 2 W30's I lost a good 7 lbs, each time, with no exercise. This time around, I added in 5/week workouts (15 min cardio with 45 min strength training). I also added Pre-WO (3-4 macadamia nuts) and a Post-WO (egg whites or tuna with a few bites of sweet potato). The rest of my meals mirrored what I did for W30 #1 and #2. I just finished my W30, and my weight only went down 3 lbs and I only lost 2" on my waist. Granted, I do feel like I have built more muscle than I had before, but a part of me was discouraged....and almost threw in the towel. I also even started tracking my calories to see if that was it...and that about drove me insane going back to that. I don't want to do that again, that is pure bondage for me. But I didn't continue down this path!!!! I LOVE eating to fuel my body, and I LOVE the way I feel. I LOVE that I'm not obsessed about food anymore, and that I eat when I'm hungry and til I'm full. So I'm trying to be happy but...part of me still looks at the scale and think...."what did I do wrong??". So, anyone else that added in workouts see a less-than-normal weight or inches lost and feel discouraged?? Or did you change anything to help get better results? I'm going to stay on Whole30 for the most part, and not give up, because I love this way of living.
  3. Hi! I'm new to this forum, so I hope I'm doing this right. I am on Day 7 or so of W30, and I find I am really hungry towards the end of the day. I exercise intensely first thing in the morning (Insanity). I prefer to work out on an empty stomach. I have eggs and veggies with some fat for breakfast post-workout, but I'm just not hungry enough to hunker down with three eggs plus two veggies, etc. (I'm full after two eggs and some veggies). I have a filling lunch (chili, coconut cream "sour cream", veggies) and a comparable dinner (steak or chicken, oil-based sauce, veggies, maybe 1/2 a sweet potato or some small roasted potatoes). But I eat dinner early (5-5:30 PM) to get my kids down for the night, and I get super hungry three hours later, when I've still got a couple hours of grown-up time. I figure my body needs the energy, so I have a compliant snack. From what I've been reading, that's not recommended. Would I then be better off just having a small second dinner? I can forego the coconut, macadamia nuts, and raisins snack if I can have smaller serving of what I had for dinner. Thoughts?
  4. Okay, question for people who are working out. I'm having a hard time grasping the 3 meals no snacks, especially for working out. It has been engrained in me to eat a carb before a workout (so you will have energy) and then a protein after (to repair muscles). What/how are you supposed to eat when you are going to have an intense workout session? When I start on the 26th, I will have breakfast around 5:30am and then workout at Noon, and then have lunch after the workout, probably around 1:00pm. Am I supposed to go without food for 6.5 hours and then have enough sustainable energy to workout? I can't possibly eat and then workout, I will vomit. Help?

    Advice for Crossfit beginner

    Any advice for someone who is very overweight who is just starting Crossfit? I am starting my second W30 and will also start Crossfit. I have been somewhat sedentary and pretty overweight. I'm determined to get healthy and change my diet and activity. Any advice for a newbie to Crossfit?
  6. For several months now, I've been having problems with my blood sugar dropping prior to my noon WOD/bike training workout. I'm not doing a Whole30 but I AM eating Whole30 like for about 75-85% of my meals throughout the week (on Friday and Saturdays I have a couple of beers at most and maybe a slightly non-compliant meal). I have been eating a half an avocado and a hard boiled egg or some deli meat about 45 minutes prior to my workout, but I still feel a little nasty right around 12:15--sometimes I feel so bad I'm actually shaking a little, although that tends to go away later. Afterwards I eat some sweet potatoes/squash and then lunch, which is some sort of meat and 2 different types of vegetables. Oh, and I eat breakfast around 6:45 or so (sometimes I have to eat it in stages because of kid related commitments). Again, I try for the right protein/veggie mix. The other thing I've noticed is that my weight has gone up ever so slightly (only 2 or 3 pounds but still....). I'm really confused by this as well, as I work out 6 days per week--3 days of Crossfit and 4 days of bike training (I do one two-a-day per week). I'm training for RAIN (160 mile bike ride across Indiana), so I've been increasing my mileage. I'm up to about 80 miles per week now. My overall performance on my bike and my WODs has been pretty darn good (I rocked me some hand stand push ups and toes to bar yesterday), it's just that dip at 12 noon that has been tanking me some days. This doesn't happen at 3:30 when I work out, just at noon. Does any body have any idea what could be going on? I've played with what I've eaten pre-WOD/workout but not had much luck. Also, if I've posted this in the wrong area, I apologize!
