    Sugar first or last

    Ok thank you.

    Day 31!

    Yeah tomorrow is day 31 for me too, I asked my own question about sugar, but I'm watching this thread too. I've been enjoying eating whole30 so I'm not sure I want to do the fast track reintroduction but this is my first one and that is recommended.

    Sugar first or last

    Hi everyone tomorrow is day 31 for me and I do want to add extra step and 3 days to reintroduce sugar. Does it matter if it I do it on day 1 or day 16?

    Yeah I hear you. I was kind of wondering what was going on too. You’ve got it exactly right. I always a little something in my 10s because I never know how busy it will get or where I’ll be deployed. I think my biggest challenge has been not snacking, especially before dinner, like while I’m making dinner, because usually by then I’m really hungry. Monday’s are hard too. I ended up not cooking dinner tonight and scrabbling together leftovers and snacks to make dinner. I did start preparing for dinner tomorrow. I foresee the Whole30 as a good template, I don’t foresee myself going back to the way I was eating before. Paleo looks pretty good to me.

    That’s what I’m saying I’m doing. Im sorry I’m not communicating too well. I guess my main question is the mini-meals don’t reset the stop watch for the 4-5 hour spacing of meals, correct? Not grazing is my biggest challenge. I used to be a grazer. I also used to be a vegetarian/vegan. This is a big change for me, to go to eating animal protein 3x a day, and spacing my meals 4-5 hours apart. I appreciate all the replies.

    I think I might have mentioned I ate an epic bar? If I forgot to mention it above, yes I also had an epic bar.

    Tomorrow I get off at 3:30pm, today I got off at 5. That’s what I was trying to say, my schedule changes from day to day. At any rate I’m doing everything right, except today’s lunch was a breakfast casserole, but I guess that doesn’t matter. Let’s put it this way, I break a sweat at least a couple of times a day at work. I’ll try again tomorrow. Tomorrow is day 30 but I feel like until I get control over this I need to keep going.

    I’ll try that tomorrow and as to the commute time or whatever what I was trying to say is I don’t get off at the same time every day. Today it was 5pm. I used to close and that’s how I ended up wanting to do the Whole30 in the first place.

    My lunch was at 1:30pm. I ate a mini meal at 4:20pm. Yes, I'm a barista. I was telling you what my work schedule was because what time I go to bed depends on what time I have to get up. So ideally tonight I would go to bed at 8pm since I have to be up at 5am, but that's probably not going to happen. I try to allow myself 9 hours of "bed time" that way it gives me a fusion. So I am getting ready for bed at 8pm tonight. I ate a fruit heavy mini meal because I needed the carbs, my job is very physical and after my 10 I was going to do a physical task. I've already logged over 12k steps today and 57 active minutes.

    My schedule changes from day to day, today it was 8:30am-5pm, tomorrow and wednesday 7am-3:30pm, 8:30am-5pm. So today I ate breakfast before 8, on my 10 at 10:30am I had two hard boiled eggs and grapes and apples, on my lunch I had buffalo chicken casserole + roasted broccoli + sweet potato fries, on my 2nd 10 I had an epic bar and a lara bar and a banana and some blueberries. So now my dilemma is when to eat dinner and how much time to allow before bed. I try to allow 9 hours in bed and 2 hours to get ready for work.

    I think there's some confusion here as I am not being understood. You have to get a lunch within 5 hours. I eat breakfast within an hour before my shift. My ten is within 2 hours of my shift. So it will be either eat in 2.5 hours or on lunch. I will look and see when I am scheduled to eat. I have another question but since you merged my thread you might do it again so I'll ask it here. How many hours is several hours before bedtime? As in stop eating. 2? 3?

    Hello everyone, I am on day 28 on my whole30 and am not sure if I should extend it or not. Staying compliant has not been a problem although I do think I have been feeding my sugar dragon with dried fruit and fruit and nut bars. My biggest problem has being not being able to control when I eat due to work. I am not in charge of when I take my breaks or my lunch at work. I know we are supposed to space meals every 4-5 hours 3x a day and I have not been able to do that yet. I was a grazer for a very long time before I started the whole30 and its very hard to break that habit. I was also a vegetarian/vegan for a very long time before I started the whole30 which is where the grazing came from. Now I work a very physically and emotionally demanding job where I can't afford to get hungry on the floor. I can eat a hard boiled egg and some fruit on my 10 minute breaks. I have been timing my meals with a stopwatch. If I have to lap my meal with the egg and fruit, that means I don't get to eat again until my next 10. Can I eat the meals 4-5 hours a part with the small snacks in between? Also what does several hours before bed mean in terms of stopping eating? Sometimes I close my store and don't get off until 7pm and then have to be at work at 7am the next morning. Those shifts kill me. I was thinking about asking my manager not to give me shifts like that but I wasn't sure how to word it. Truth of the matter its not good for my health.

    Sweet Potato Toast

    I was going to post about this too but ask how you cut your sweet potato. You cut in rounds? The pictures I saw they looked oblong.

    Ok thank you, that’s what I will be doing by marking out a protein box. I appreciate the clarity.

    Is that so? If I eat my lunch for my break then I won't have anything left to eat for my lunch. I think I got this. Now that I know that walking to work does make me a bit hungry, I know to eat something before I go on the floor. I'm going to see if I can time things better tomorrow: eat breakfast within an hour of waking up, get to work early and eat something before going on the floor, and having an egg/fruit on each of my 10s. Believe me if I don't have my full lunch on my lunch, I'm going to be mad. Everything is physical about my work day, from my walk, to the actual labor, to the walk home.
