Normally I eat a paleo/primal diet, but lately I've been so busy that my source of energy is becoming less food-like and more along the lines of protein powders/bars, multi-vitamin pills, omega 3 / cod liver oil, canned fish, health optimizer bars, and whatever raw vegetable I can grab....
It feels like I'm not really eating food at all.
Just a bit of background. I have an office day job and a startup on the side, I also train 2-3 times a week in thai boxing, I'm on the bike an hour everyday, and sometimes I do a bit of running(5k) and hot yoga on the weekends. I'm trying to safely cut 5-10lb before a fight in August and it's been really tough with all the stress / lack of sleep. Right now I'm at 20-21% bodyfat(yes, I'm female). A month ago I was at 23% and I think I can definitely go lower.
If anyone has any tips on how to optimize a paleo-diet for a busy lifestyle I would really appreciate it.
