performance: gaining 0.1 lb a week

I am 41 years old, and finally serious about my health and well-being, lol. Began running about 3 years ago, really loved it -- had a minor injury for two years, and have now gotten back on the wagon in 2010! Tired of my clothes getting tighter and tighter, so I thought it was time to finally address nutrition and deal with this thing from the inside out! :)

Am using the Paleo regimen and so far, really like it. This website is helpful: http://www.paleofood.com/


UPDATE ~ 19 October 2010

So far, 9 pounds and almost 3% body fat lost. Getting so much stronger! Very exciting! Workouts are now starting to be fun ... never thought I would say that!


Would love to get to know others here, so feel free to message me!

How Much Water Do You Drink?
100oz per day is my goal, but I live at altitude (5280 ft) and am doing CrossFit. If you are at lower altitude, you wouldn't have to drink so much; suggested is 1/2 ones body weight, in ounces. My doctors says urine should be 'almost odorless, almost colorless', lol. Smile

Reasonable - ish fast food options please
I don't know where you live, but some chains have the nutritional information on their websites, so once you find restaurants that have food you can have, then you may want to try looking it up online. I go for either Starbucks' protein plate (I don't eat the bread in there, though) or Qdoba/Chipotle burritos -- I order them naked (no tortilla), no rice, black beans, extra chicken, salsa and guacamole -- no starch or dairy at all. On Qdoba's website, you can customize your own burrito and it will calculate the nutrition for you. Consider it a new adventure! Have fun with it! Smile

Are you hungry after you work out?
The two hours following a workout is when the body is most ready to absorb nutrients and put them to work repairing the muscles, etc. Protein is a MUST to build muscle mass (which burns more calories!) ... even 1/2 a chicken breast on a small bed of salad greens would do it (easy on the dressing). But don't not eat ... you are teaching the body to NOT burn calories by not eating.

Magic bullet saves the day!
I want one! A friend of mine says she has one she can give me, but I don't think I can wait until she digs it out of her basement/attic/wherever it is. It would have come in really handy when I made Paleo pancakes this morning. I wonder if it's on sale somewhere ... ?
