Feeling like utter crap



Recommended Posts

Hi guys so I'm 1year and 1 month post op I've been at the gym for 4 months now but feel like utter s**t I can't get enough food in before the day is up after the gym cos I'm rushing around and forget I do however take pre workout is this why my body could be playing games with me I have a huge lump on my back docs thinks it's a boil and my lower back is killing me but also eating food makes me feel more like s**t does anyone know if preworkout is actually no good for my gut? Should u just take Protein? This is probably the most stupidest question I'm sorry i get all flustered with my health (I suffer mentality issues as well as neurologic activity problems) n I get confused as too what I'm actually doing right or wrong...

If you can, my suggestion is to use a app to remind you to eat. I use one to remind me to take my pills. I can't eat much pre-workout or I feel sick, but I make sure to eat enough earlier in the day. Can you get an appointment with your dietician to review what and when you are eating? Good luck and feel better.

Thank you yes will definitely get an app to give that a go I eat the right stuff I have red meat once a week and the rest is white meat I usually top n change between chicken pork or fish but when I'm extremely stressed I feel this way I have also gained a massive limp on my back which I will get xrayed this week but definitely will get to a dietitian I've had to change about 4 times my dietitian as they were absolutely useless they couldn't answer my questions and would consistently try to push me out of my appt after 10 minutes and told me to look on Google for the answers to my questions but will try again 🙂

I don't do any special pre or post work out. I just fuel up a string cheese if I feel a little hungry going to the gym. After workout, I have a Protein Bar. I wouldn't worry and the special concoctions unless you are hard core working out, or at least until you get your diet situation straighten out.

If you feel like crap, stop going to the gym, and take some days off. It won't hurt you. Take a week off. In fact every couple months at a gym, you should eb changing up your routine in a significant way. Maybe take a big break, and trying some jogging and train yourself into a 5k.

Make sure you are eating enough carbs and Protein. You could feel like crap because you are physically exhausted because you are not eating enough.

Most of those pre workouts have a ton of caffeine in them which might irritate the stomach. I take one sometimes and I’m ok with it but may not be helping you.

I have to look for a non-stim (non-caffeine) preworkout, because all of those stims mess with my anxiety and stomach really bad. There's a bunch of options on Amazon. Make an appointment with a dietitian outside of your practice if they suck that bad. Maybe hire a trainer; they are usually familiar with dietary needs.
