EvJaye Posted October 16, 2013 Share Posted October 16, 2013 Hi, I am on Day 15 after a massive reset (attempted a Whole30 in August, got mostly through it, then tanked big time). I work out 6 days/week: either Crossfit or running track or just running. I do take one day off/week. I'm sticking to the template and while my hips and thighs are smaller, my stomach is one big flabby pooch. I'm surprised! Is it that I need to do more abs? Someone at the gym suggested that my body might be burning muscle instead of fat. A typical day looks like this (and I eat the same thing almost every day) B: 2 hard boiled eggs, small spoon of almond butter, some salad or sliced tomato, black coffee L: Big salad with lettuce, tomato, onion, cuke, an organic turkey patty (plain old turkey and some salt), one hb egg, maybe a small apple or some grapes, 1/2 avocado D: Another turkey patty, salad, 1/2 avocado, maybe some fruit or a sprinkling of nuts on the salad, maybe a handful of raisins. Sometimes for lunch my salad will be kale with grilled chicken and avocado. Sometimes I have that turkey patty for breakfast with a salad. Sometimes the eggs are scrambled. Once in awhile I will have a cup of pumpkin soup (puree pumpkin and chicken broth) or a small sweet potato. Any thoughts? I feel like for the amount of working out I'm doing, I should be ripped! Or, perhaps my workouts aren't all that great and they just seem great since I'm working out more now than I used to...?
