    kanmuri got a reaction from W30 IBS sufferer in October 17th Start   
    Hey allisonra,  welcome aboard!  First, what you said about being disgusted about your choices stayed with me.  You need to change the words you use for yourself.  Would you tell a friend that had gone through the same thing that her choices disgusted you?  Of course not!  Be your own friend.   You made mistakes and those are behind you; no need to rehash them.  You can do this!
    As for black coffee, you can add some full-fat coconut milk to give it a bit of flavor.  I also like to add cinnamon and nutmeg to make it a little bit more flavorful (especially if it's Starbucks.)  Otherwise, I recommend you find a good "hispter" coffee shop in your area and ask for a pour over.  They should have different blends and can recomment you the sweeter ones.

    Hey KathrynME!  TV is suuuuch an enabler.  There is something comforting about mindless eating in front of the tube, no doubt.  One thing that really helped us get away from this is cancelling cable.  We only have netflix and so if we decide to eat in front of the TV (usually watching old school Star Trek,)  it's a bit of a special event.

    Welcome back!!!!  I'm also aiming for about 100 days!  I want to really take care of my body before going on holiday in January.  I'm also coming here with the FFF perspective.

    Welcome!  I would recommend giving yourself a bit of leeway in your seven day plan.  You might not feel like eating something one night and if that keeps happening, you'll start resenting the plan and the program, feeling like it's preventing from enjoying food.  So enjoy and don't be too hard on yourself.

    Those are compliant.  However if your start using those as replacement snacks for your sugar fix, it defeats the purpose.  So they're fine, until they become your new crack. lol

    kanmuri got a reaction from HilaryR in Starting 10/30 ... would love advice on meals to take to work   
    I like scrambled, but I would also recommend Nom Nom Paleo's crispy egg: http://nomnompaleo.com/post/104615214153/sunnyside-salad-crispy-fried-eggs-on-greens
    That's a bit more time consuming, tho.

    Welcome!  For lunch, my partner and I prepare protein, greens and veggies on Sunday for the whole week.  We store them separately.  Then we use Japanese bento boxes and assemble our lunches in the morning.  We end up eating the same thing pretty much every day but since I work on the road, for me that's the easiest.  I also do big batches of food on Sunday using my instant pot and freeze them to eat later in the week.  Breakfast is usually eggs and more veggies.  I vary it on weekends.

    I think to be in the philosophy of the Whole30 a portion is whatever you eat until you feel satisfied and satiated. If you eat slowly and mindfully portion sizes will come naturally.  Plus you can always adjust when you feel you've gone a bit overboard.

    I have something like this: http://murata.ca/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=183_86&products_id=7107
    It's hard to see but it has two containers you can stack.  I used to have something like that before: https://www.lifewithoutplastic.com/store/ca/2-tier-stainless-steel-304-mini-tiffin-10-cm-4-diameter.html
    Size will depend on your appetite.  We fill the biggest container with veggies and the smaller one with meat.

    Hi All! I started yesterday...and came on here to see if anyone else is doing a Oct W30 Yay! This will be my 3rd W30 if I can finish it (meaning I've started and only made it a few days soooooo many times in the last few months).  I have been having some of my own health problems creeping back in...extra weight...lots of life stress...I was eating so awful and drinking way too much. I just bit the bullet and started! Happy prepping today for those starting tomorrow :-D
