Alisonlcarver Posted January 8, 2016 Share Posted January 8, 2016 The more I read, the more it sounds like low carb, high fat, moderate protein is the healthiest way to eat. Does anyone have any experience or advice on eating this way, while doing lots of cardio? I'm currently training for a marathon. Four runs plus one crosstrain day a week. Currently no additional strength, but I need to work on that. Should I keep up my normal way of eating which is very healthy and still completely Whole 30, even though I'm on day 43 currently, or will low carb provide a benefit to me? A typical day for me is M1: 3 scrambled eggs in 1 tsp. ghee with either my fill of roasted butternut squash or 1 large sweet potato with 1/2 avocado and Tessemae's ketchup Pre-WO: 1-2 HB eggs, sometimes with a gob of mayo (If I run longer than 90 minutes, I eat an unsweetened applesauce pouch at the :50 mark and then again at the 1:30-2:00 mark if I am still going. If I run less than 8 miles, no during workout food.) Post-WO: 1 (5 oz.) can of compliant tuna or salmon with either a piece of fruit or 1/2 baked sweet potato, plain M2: usually something like homemade chicken salad using homemade mayo, salad with lots of veggies and olive oil/balsamic vinegar M3: usually either chocolate chili with sides of grape tomatoes, black olives, 1/2 avocado and spicy mayonnaise, OR 6 oz. of baked fish with roasted broccoli and homemade tarter sauce with an ocassional piece of fruit and herbal tea Usually 0-3 pieces of fruit per day, and usually 1-2 starchy carbs per day.
