clm Posted February 24, 2014 Share Posted February 24, 2014 I'm on day 7 of my first Whole 30. I have been going to a high intensity boot camp style class & lifting weights for several months. According to the timeline, it's normal for workouts to be tough at this point. I told my trainer today, and she suggested that I eat a Larabar or carb before exercise. I know this isn't Whole30 recommended, but my workouts have been suffering since Day 1 and my muscles are more easily fatigued. It makes sense to me that my body needs some carbs to fuel an intense workout. I've been eating sweet potato afterwards, and I immediately feel soooo much better. I'm also worried that I will lose some of the muscle I've worked so hard for if I'm not able to give it 100%. Should I add some carbs pre-workout or stick to the protein only and my body will get used to it? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
