Bethany Gingerich Posted December 30, 2013 Share Posted December 30, 2013 History: I've done 3 Whole 30s in the last slightly-over-a-year. Eat pretty clean but definitely have my weak moments. My boyfriend is participating in the 12-week Transformation Challenge on Bodybuilding.com, and I'm thinking I may join him. I'm in pretty awesome shape after a year and a half of super consistent CrossFit, but I still want to get leaner and I need a push to make that happen. I've also been under a lot of stress and not sleeping well, and as we all know, Whole30 delivers angelic heavenly sleep! I'm wondering about doing Whole30 during this challenge. My main obvious concern is that I'll need to take supplements for extra protein. I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on this. I probably would just do the normal 30 days anyway, so I could take supplements the rest of the time. Hmmmm...???? I want to do this as healthily as possible obviously. Another option would be to eat W30-style the entire time, but with added supplements, which would then not actually be W30, but still pretty freakin' healthy. I do want dramatic results, since that is kind of the point of this type of competition...I can't pretend this is anything more than aesthetic, since I already work out a ton and keep myself healthy. But I refuse to compromise my healthy life for an after pic. So I'm really trying to be thoughtful about this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
