Thanks for the article! I will read it. I am upping my food intake this week to see if that is it. And adding in some emergen-c, I don't do recovery drinks normally, but I have been fairly active( 2 hrs a day) My diet was pretty simple for the whole30, paleo, so don't really think was food allergy, I think it may have been combo, lack of enough food/ hormones.

(I finally weighed and I dropped the eight pounds I gained last month from steroids (lung thing), in about three weeks) and I should probably add, my body fat went down, so it was fat not lean muscle) (it was actually probably water/bloat from the steroids and not really fat)

Thank Coach Nancy for that article. It is a tough line.

Have you considered an allergy or sensitivity to something you are eating? The symptoms sound a little like it to me.

I just want to say thank you for the article. I understand the delicate balance challenges and often find myself going through the same thing while I am training for my HM races. Again, thank you for the information.

Hi,

This is tough because there is a fine line to eating just enough to promote weight loss without sacrificing your performance, but not so much that you aren't losing weight. Many runners put themselves on the same weight loss time line as though who don't run and the reality is, a runner's best to put a max of 1/2 pound a week weight loss so that you preserve your lean body mass.

Below is a link to a really great article that may help you out.

That said. I'm training for a half marathon and I've had some issues this week that I can't decide if they are hormones, not enough food or something. (when I say hormones, I mean the lady monthly kind) (and I'm doing a Whole30 right now)--

A typical weeks workouts-
teach yoga four classes
two days with personal trainer
5 days of running/walking 3-7 miles
2-4 gym workouts with weights.(alternateing upper and lower body)

A typical day's food
coffee and coconut milk

breakfast three eggs and veggie omlet (cooked in fat)
or a three egg, spinach, flax, fruit smoothie with coconut milk.

lunch- meat and veggies, cooked various ways, usually with fat, (coconut, olive, or bacon)

dinner meat and veggies,

snacks would be fruit, more meat and veggies, occasionally nuts, I have sweet potato about every other day and avocado about every other day. I don't always have a snack, just if I'm going to workout before dinner and think I need some extra energy.

I am female, 40s, 5'4" and probably have 30 pounds to lose.

I've been cloudy headed, not thinking clearly, but I have had a lot going on, which is typical for me. This week I had a weepy day, due to some stressors that weren't that bad, but they made me cry and I ended up sleeping nine hours that night and then taking a nap the next day. Also, I've had muscle soreness, something I don't normally get. I have been getting probably 6 to 7 hours of sleep a night.

I haven't been hungry, unless I miss a meal, then I'm "starving" and "hangry".
I do take at least one day off from working out, and seem to be gaining muscle strength, etc.

Does it sound like I need more food? Carbs? If so, what kind? As I up my run length, what kind of more carbs for longer runs?
