  • Help for a Newbie!

    Hi ~ I have just (re) started my Primal journey and I have a question. I do a Workout Bootcamp 3x a week (which I LOVE!!!!). My trainer said that we burn anywhere from 500-880 calories a session. It's pretty hard core and I usually end up dripping sweat when it's 41 degrees, so I would imagine it's kind of accurate. We do some running, lots of plyometrics, kettlebells, ect..It's a little like a Crossfit session, I would imagine. Anyway, after starting PB I am really dragging at the workouts. I know I need to add in some more carbs, but am not sure when to do it. Should I add them the day before my workouts (M-W-F) or the day of my workouts? Also, how much? Or should I just experiment with it?

    Thanks In Advance!!!!

    going to need more info...what do you eat everyday? and that means
    everything! do you hit your bootcamp fasted?

    you say you are "restarting", so i assume you arent at the body composition
    you would like. I say this only because it is possible you are not getting enough
    recovery between workouts, particularly if they are very strenuous.
