  1. Hi all, How do you deal with eating and drinking out? I do not really miss the drinks or snacks or whatever per se. I actually like the whole30 food better in moat cases. Still I hate not being able to just eat and drink the same as my friends. It makes me feel left out even though they are very understanding and cool about it. I just hate not being able to have a glass of wine with them for example. I don't like going and eating out that much anymore this way. Is it just the offer I've got to make? Because I am really starting to wonder whether it is worth the offer now... What do you guys do about this?

    I also saw a great recipe for (peach) Iced tea on the whole30 recipe insta!

    Thanks!! I hope it will turn out the same for me!:) I think its mainly in the habits. Nice weather means ice cream, drinking with friends means fried snacks, etc etc.. I also really miss having a glass of wine already.. luckily prepping delicious w30 compliant food helps me through it

    @Oaklandish1 keep up! You are doing great! Maybe it'll help to buy sliced food or a kitchen machine or something to speed up the cooking process? I also heard great stories about slow cookers. And for the burning, maybe use timers on ur phone or something? I recognize the feeling you describe about social situations. But maybe its also that tipsy people are just harder to level with. And I always feel tired earlier when I dont drink, so that makes it harder to keep up with conversations.. plus, it may just be a bit scary to not just act the same as your friends when it comes to drinking alcohol, which could feel a bit awkward at the beginning. anyway, don't give up right away. See this as a learning process rather than blame yourself! You're doing fine, you just have to get used to this new lifestyle and that does not always go easy. But you will get there!

    Hi @Oaklandish1, Sounds like a tough day. i hope your neck will get better soon! I do feel you about the constantly cooking thing. I remember this especially from my firsr round. I think the trick is mainly to keep it simple. A bit of sliced veggies, nuts and (cooked in advance?) Eggs is already a meal. Not every meal has to be a 3 stars dish!! Additionally you could think about prepping and cooking more portions than you need everytime you cook a dish. I even put dishes in my freezer for my lazy "I just dont wanna cook!" moments. Just think about it. I'm sure you can come up with some simpler dishes btw I like to put fruit in my salads. Maybe that's an idea? I also made chicken-mango burgers once. They were delicious! Are there any fruits yoj think are not that bad to eat? Maybe I can help you with some recipes including those? I am doing well in my whole 30. So far I like the food and surprisingly I dont really miss my o so favorite chocolate. I did miss a snack though, when I went out with friends to have a drink at a pub. I also felt a bit like a boring person there with my water and tea instead of a nice glass of wine... Yesterday I also felt very tired .. maybe hangover symptoms?? good luck! Already four days down! We can do it!

    Alright, it might be just a lack of sleep but damn, I'm sooo tired. And why is it such good weather? I want ice cream and a nice glass of wine...
  7. Hi all, I found this recipe online and it looks delicious! Sushi with cauliflower rice.. like to try it out but is it really w30 compliant, or is it swypo? https://40aprons.com/whole30-sushi-low-carb-paleo/
  8. Yes! After a looong time of struggling with starting and keeping up with my second round of the whole30 I think I finally succeeded (at least, my first 3 days..! 10% already! ). Today I made delicious smoothies with carrots, almond milk, walnuts and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg). Yum! Also made my favorite salad with fresh strawberries. Love it!

    @#journeyto50 how did your first days go?

    Sounds like a great menu for the first day! And indeed, 1 day down already about the bloated and gassy feeling: could be the sort of food (I get those symptoms after eating cabbage for example...) but it could also be related to the change of the food you eat. You probably eat more veggies (and therefore fibers) for example. Your body has to get used to that i guess you just have to wait and see. I hope you will feel better soon!!

    Haha I feel exactly the same about my round two! I really hope we can support each other to get through it. We will get through it!! How did your first day go? I started off with a great salad with beets and blueberries and made a simple dish in the evening (green beans, w30 compliant home made meat balls, tomato sauce). I miss chocolate already, but I hopefully get over that in week 2 or 3. I also watched a tv program about the latest ideas of healthy food, which convinced me that eating whole30 style is better for my health motivated me to complete my second round this time how about you?

    Hi! Oaklandish, I was in a similar situation during my last round. What was helping me the most was that I knew the benefits of the whole30 by then. I felt so much better that it literally changed my life. I reminded myself that I didn't want to give up all that for, lets say, one glass of wine. (Especially because I knew I would feel so bad the next days because of that). On top of that, I didn't wanna break the promise I made myself and the people around me. Maybe it could help you to remind yourself why you want to finish the w30. it might help to write down very clearly what your goals are and why, and what you would feel and think if you would quit during these last days... ??? Additionally I saw these occasions as an opportunity to learn. I tried to 'observe' what made me want to have a glass of wine or snacks, and if I could think of a solution for that. For example, when I feel hungry I tend to snack, but I actually need to take a break and eat a proper meal. At parties I also struggled with the feeling of behaving differently that the others and feeling like I was not the right person to celebrate parties with. Though I can be a great party animal without alcohol and crisps ). Practically, It helped me to have my own drinks and whole30 compliant food with me. Especially things I really liked, so that I could enjoy something too. Even though I think the whole 30 does not allow you to snack all day (but rather advises to eat 3 meals a day, as far as I know) it might still be better to eat for example a boiled egg or a small w30 compliant meal than eat snacks that are not compliant with the whole30 in case of "emergency". I hope this helps you. I start my whole30 today. Maybe we could share ideas and experiences during our w30 rounds? how did you prepare for your w30? Is it your first round?
