    Ideas for 12 hour shift days???

    I work 12 hour shifts too, and I FINALLY found a system that works for me. Hopefully it will work for you as well... Just to make this easier, lets say I have Friday-Sunday off. On Friday night, I will make a LARGE dinner, large enough for 4+ left over servings (depending on if you're just feeding yourself or family). Saturday and Sunday I do the same. Also on Sunday, I will throw things together in a crock-pot that I will take out of the fridge on Monday morning, and just push Start. On one of my days off (Usually Saturday, to spread things out), I make a massive breakfast casserole of some kind, that will give me enough servings to get me through the week. I found that they heat up very well! So I'm really only cooking 3 dinners and 1 big breakfast casserole, plus chucking stuff into a crock-pot. Some people do all their prep in one day, but that overwhelms me. I found that this broke things up nicely. Its not hard to make bigger portions of the same meal. Through out the week, I will circulate my leftovers like so: Monday Morning: Breakfast casserole leftovers Monday Lunch: Leftovers from Friday's dinner Monday Dinner: Crock-pot Tuesday Morning: Breakfast casserole leftovers Tuesday Lunch: Leftovers from Saturday's dinner Tuesday Dinner: Leftovers from Sunday's dinner Wednesday Morning: Breakfast casserole leftovers Wednesday Lunch: Leftovers from Monday's crock-pot Wednesday Dinner: Leftovers from Friday's dinner Thursday Morning: Breakfast casserole leftovers Thursday Lunch: Leftovers from Saturday's dinner Thursday Dinner: Leftovers from Sunday's dinner And over my days off, I will finish up any extra leftovers, and make whatever I feel like for breakfast.

    Staring April 1!

    Good Morning, Everyone! Welcome to Day #2! How was everyone able to handle Easter? I found myself eating a bowl of broccoli and a Salmon Frittata while my family dove into Honey Ham, corn casserole, grape salad (covered in brown sugar, dairy something, and nuts), and other extremely non-compliant dishes. Dessert was the hardest for me to pass up- Homemade Tiramisu! Somehow, even though I had to help dish and pass out the dessert, I did not give in! Taking this as my first "Win!" lol

    Should I stop IF for Whole30?

    Thank you, Kirkor! I appreciate the advice! I will look into that forum! You're right, I have been hearing more and more acceptance of the IF.
  4. I have been following the Paleo and Keto WOE for over a year. With this, I've also been following intermittent fasting for a year as well. I have read articles and forums that suggest you to not introduce IF during your Whole30. I understand it can confuse your body, because there are too many variables. However, my question is, if my body is already used to IF, do I stop for my Whole30 program? Or would stopping fall into the same category of doing too many changes at once? Just for reference, this is my current eating pattern: 5:00am: Bullet proof coffee with ghee or coconut milk or oil (<100kcal) 10:00am: Breakfast 2:00pm: Lunch 5:30-6pm: Dinner

    Staring April 1!

    I am definitely a grazer, and eating 3 meals a day without snacking is definitely going to be a challenge for me as well. I've been practicing this past week in preparation for my April 1st start date, by sipping tea when my snack monster shows it's ugly head!
