Hmm - finding that exercise / fuel balance is certainly challenging! I know when I do really intense exercise I binge if I don't eat soon after my workout. Are you getting a clean post-workout meal? If I get in a clean protein shake or yogurt and granola after my workouts I have less of a tendency to binge later.

My challenge - clean quick eats from if I forget to grab my cooler in the morning...

i think that this is a good game!

hmm... allergic to fish, huh... does he like tofu? try that. and what about beans? high in the RIGHT kind of carbs... i take grilled chicken and italian veggies, and dump 2 cups of salsa on top of it all and cook it up. i can't eat much fish either because i am the only one in my large household that likes it...

for eating clean, is 93-97 lean beef allowed? i thought it was...

anywhos:

my eating clean issue is this: working it in with the exercise. i am not getting the right amount (too much) or i am exercising fine, but not getting the right amount of food (too much)... so i am binging...

I think planning my meals and packing foods to take with me help me quite a bit with that "inner voice." Having lunch with you makes it much easier to turn down someone who is running to the local fast food place at lunch and wants to know if you want anything.

My hardest challenge is planning family dinners at night for the week. That leaves pork, beef, shrimp (he's not allergic to shellfish) and meatless. I am fortunate that my husband is into eating as clean as possible, and watching what he eats. However, he has the unfortunate luck of being allergic to fish and poultry. Trying to plan so I can get more servings of poultry and fish, and less beef myself is challenging.

I will kick things off...

There are times when my inner voice starts whispering that I am "missing out" by denying myself yummy foods that "normal" people eat. Sometimes I beat him back, but other times I cave - and usually regret it later when I come to my senses. I welcome any advice for others squelch that devilish voice!

Here is a game to help us help each other overcome some of our biggest obstacles to eating clean! Here's how it works:

1) Team Member 1 posts one of the things s/he finds challenging about sticking to clean eating.

2) Team Member 2 responds to the post with a couple of suggestions for how to avoid or deal with the scenario, and then lists a situation that THEY find challenging.

3) Team Member 3 then responds to Team Member 2's post with suggestions for coping, followed by their own challenging situation. And so on....

Hope that made sense...if not, just ask and I will clarify!
