Are you taking a good multi-vitamin? I get Anemic just prior to my TOM.....if I don't stay on top on taking iron or my multi right before my TOM I will get extremely tired, feel cranky and out of sorts. Could be low iron?

I was eating 40/30/30 before I started running!!! Once I started training for my 1st 1/2 marathon I had to bump my carbs up to 50/25/25!!! As I get closer to a big event, I go to 60/20/20!!!

Thanks...I'm trying to maintain but it would be nice to lose 10 pounds on the scale,but I dont think its possible...I'm pretty lean already at 16-17% bodyfat with Calipers. I'm not sure how accurate they are? My pants from 5 years ago are snug in the thighs and upper butt area so its possible that I may need to lose 10 pounds. For Fat loss it says on one website I need 1600-1700 cal. to lose. Does this sound about right? Thanks for helping me!!! I just got done with a Run and feel more better,a little more energy. emoticon

By any chance are you calculating a daily calorie deficit? To lose 1 lb each week, you will need an average of a 500 caloried deficit. Just making sure you are within range.

Also, when I have my TOM, I get extrememly fatigued. Like CRAZY fatigued. You may be right, it could be just hormones too.

Are you eating enough calories? Is your 40/30/30 plan 40% carbs and 30% for protein and fat? If so, that really isn't THAT low for carbs.

I don't know for sure... if you are tired you could be too low on carbs and/or protein.
I'm not a real fan of low carb eating. I like oatmeal and whole wheat pasta too much. Although that isn't to say I don't occasionally have a low carb meal. My carbs are slightly lower than spark recommends, though. Around 200 grams/day. But, I eat a minimum of 100 grams of protein/day also...

Hi, I usually eat.....

50% Carbs
25%-30% Fats
25 or 30% Protein

But wanted to try the 40/30/30...so I have been trying this the last past week but feel a bit weak and tired,and hard to perform,I wonder if my carbs are to low or maybe it is from time of the month. I have also been doing lots of High intensity workouts so this can be the problem. I would like more definition for the front of my thighs so I thought lowering my carbs a bit. Hmm...... TY!
