ashtynb89 Posted March 17, 2015 Share Posted March 17, 2015 So I'm about to give this Whole30 my first go, I'm pretty excited about it. I've done something similar in the past and really enjoyed how I felt afterwards, hoever it wasn't as strict. I only cut out MOST dairy and grains. My trainer told me about Whole30 after I had been complaining of feeling like I was in a rut and needed to switch things up. I bought the book and I'm only a few chapters in but I'm totally sold. I've not only been in a rut, but have felt unhappy towards my body, my relationship wiht food has been poor and overall I have had an unhealthy mindset. I feel like this will help me psycologically and I'm really excited for that. Here is my concern though, being as I was in a rut I got a bit ambitious and signed up for 2 half marathons (1 trail) and a Spartan Super, all within weeks of each other starting at the end of May. I'm a very athletic person, avid weight lifter, occassional runner, I've done many races in the past, including a Spartan Beast last year. So none of this is new to me. That being said, I'm worried about how the Whole30 eating regiman will affect my training. Next week, the 24th, is my start date for Whole30. Next weekend, the 28th begins my running schedule. The Monday after that begins my weight training 3x a week, sprints & hills 1x a week, Saturdays long runs. I need to make sure I'm fueling my body accordingly. I just want to ensure I have energy during these 30 days, and I would like to continue as close to paleo as possible. But I think after this I will incorporate my whey protein shakes and quest bars again, thats what I usually use to fuel pre and post workout. So what are your guys suggestions? Any other super active people out there who have trained heavily during this process before? What are your meals like pre and post workout? Help!
