APRIL 2024 Q&A PLAYBACK

  1. Is it important to eat something before you workout? Also, what is the best time and food to eat before and after a workout. For instance, if you workout in the morning when and what should eat for breakfast?
  2. What is the best and affordable protein powder? And do we need to mix it with 2% or whole milk? When is the best time to drink protein shakes?
  3. By 3:00ish I’m hungry, starting to get a headache, and very hangry. I have a snack with protein like yogurt. But what can I do to help with this overall? Feeling like this the same time every day isn’t sustainable for me. I also feel like I have a good amount of protein at all snacks and meals. I thought that would help tide me over.
  4. How do you count oils in MFP when cooking w them?  ex is when u put broccoli on a sheet pan and brush it with a 1/2 cup olive oil.  how do u count the olive oil in your serving of broccoli… don’t know how much oil is on a serving of broccoli if it’s divided up on a large sheet pan of broccoli and everyone eats different amts so it’s hard to divide how much olive oil you have had🤪 hope that makes more sense
  5. Weighing and period – what can I expect the scale to read around my period? I’m currently on the week before my period starts so then next week I’ll be on my period.. is this something different for everyone or should I expect to see the scale up a little?
  6. How do you accurately track when eating out? Especially at local restaurants that don’t have published nutrition information.
  7. How do you prepare for a vacation? I’m going on a cruise in a few weeks and wondering the best way to find the balance of enjoying vacation while not getting too off track.
