I have been eating a hardboiled egg prior to my workout but she said my body should have extra carbs.

Has anyone else been doing the IP Alternative Phase 1, I know some have because they are diabetic or young adults, but has anyone done it so they can exercise?

Looking for feedback to see how it works and whether it hinders your results, I would still like to lose another 7-10 lbs before moving to phase 2.
What you have been doing has worked well so far and you are nearing the finishline.
I'd say if it isn't broke don't fix it.
The hardboiled egg you are having already sounds like a very good idea giving you a good protein boost before exercising.
Make choices today that your future self will thank you for!
