I guess I want the "straight poop" - I know food is very personal and fads come and go....I am not interested in a diet or quick fix. Nor am I interested in Crossfit/ Paleo, etc etc. I am interested in being as healthy and vibrant as possible & participating in my chosen sport at a very aggressive level (running). To that end, I wonder if I "should" try eating meat?? Or is that even necessary....
This is becoming a very long winded, all over the place post! Sorry about that! I appreciate all the responses.
Sounds like everyone here has gone from veg or vegan to eating meat... Really not sure if that is the path for me.
Thank you again for the comments!!!
Just re-read this and wanted to add- from a runner's perspective- if you try the whole 30 as outlined (with meat etc) make sure you are eating sweet potatoes, squash, etc and plenty of fat. I tried to do this once before and stay low-fat and low-carb and I literally could not run. My 5 mile daily runs literally lasted 1 block and then came to blinding halt. I have not tried to run yet on this whole 30 because it is too cold and snowy here but judging by my other workouts I think I would do just fine. Good luck to you, which ever route you go. I'm curious to see your results
