I exercise regularly and for the most part exercise fasted. I started CrossFit and decided to eat prior to workout to see if my strength and energy levels improved, which they did. This was when eating high carbs. Prior to workout I would make sure I had porridge and if eaten at least an hour before would sit well in my stomach. However, since keto woe I have gone back to fasting prior to the workout. I find I am feeling hungry where my tum aches a little and dont have as much energy or strength during class and can feel the energy depleting during the workout. I know that lockdown restrictions have played some part in the strength depletions but throughout lockdown i continued to do cardio by stair running over 100+ floors a day (in one set) and still doing that even before going to CrossFit class. I think I need to eat first but the thought of eating eggs or meat just makes me think I will throw up mid class!
So the question is for those of you who eat first, what food or meal suits your stomach? What do you eat?
For the record very fit 63yrs old female … keto-ing since May this year and now just started to go carnivore. Not trying to lose weight.
N.b. I have read in another post that there is another transitioning period between keto and carnivore. Does it effect lung capacity? I do breathing exercises to help with lung capacity.
Sorry if this is in another thread, I have read all those on exercise and eating.
