    snacksandsweat got a reaction from ChristyJ in Who's starting 1/1?   
    Hi everyone, I plan to start Whole 30 on January 1st! This will be my second time (I did my first Whole 30 in June 2017). This past year I fell into a rut with my healthy habits and returned back to binge-eating and out-of-control sugar cravings. I want to reset and get back on track with eating right and nourishing my body so I can improve my energy levels, reduce inflammation, and establish a healthy attitude and relationship with food.
    The biggest temptations/challenges that I foresee are succumbing to temptations (candy, chocolate, pastries, chips) at work or social events, and eating out with family (we tend to go to restaurants that are carb-heavy, e.g. noodles, dumplings, rice, etc.). I hope joining this forum will help keep me accountable because I could definitely use the support!

    I agree! If I get tempted at work, I will try to drink water or tea to distract myself and bring emergency snacks just in case. It will be difficult to avoid outings with family and friends, so I am trying to figure out a strategy on how to stay compliant (i.e. bring my own meals or snacks? try to modify my order? suggest restaurants that have compliant options?) Suggestions welcome!

    @GraceMelodie -- I am relieved to hear I was not the only one who did that with pastries! I would tell myself "just a few bites" but end up bingeing on a whole plate of desserts and then feel horrible after, but then I would do it all over again the next day--such a self-sabotaging cycle!  
     @GraceMelodie  and @ChristyJ Thank you, ladies, for these eating out tips!!

    Hi there! These are the same kind of issues for me, too. I'm usually pretty healthy but this past year I got lazier with my exercise, ate wayyyyy more sweets and treats, and basically got out of touch with my body. I'd love to develop better habits and a better relationship to food!
