    Breakfast Ideas

    On my first try at W30, it was suggested to stop thinking breakfast. lunch, dinner and think meal 1. meal 2. meal 3. I usually eat left overs from dinner.

    Yes! We do. One meal at a time and planning. Off to do the shopping with list in hand.

    @Raenstorm Don't forget your fats. They really will help keep you full. Keep something to drink where you can get to it.

    Starting the Whole30 on 7/23

    I will be starting Monday as well. Well, it's a restart, re commitment to me. WE CAN DO THIS!
  5. @A_banana, My first thought was that you could set your watch to your home time zone. It's what I've always done when I traveled. As for meals, think in terms of meal 1, meal 2 and meal 3 rather than breakfast, lunch and dinner. Tinned foods should be okay thru customs. Hope someone else has suggestions for you. Welcome aboard.

    Artificial Flavor in Coffee?

    I'm drinking much less coffee these days so I am buying more exotic coffee that I don't to add anything to. My gift list included coffee from small roasters.

    Breakfast sugestions?

    I have always eaten leftovers in the morning. Even as a child.

    Mireille, Good for you! I don't do fancy. Just meat/chicken and veggies plus healthy fats.

    January 1st restart

    I keep restarting but I take at least a few of the good habits with me. A lot has changed in my mindset and I know I can do this. Lydia Jo

    Restart, Reset, Regain control

    @GabiPatricia I've gone down this road several times but seem to get derailed. Each time I learn more about myself. I've done away with the focus issue by having 6-10 pre cooked meals in the freezer. Because I often work from up to 16 hours, I always take 2 meals with me to work. You know the what to do, focus on the why.

    Underwhelmed and frustrated

    Wow, that is a lot of negative stuff. Maybe it's not about what you have left out of your diet but what you have added. Have you been eating new foods or larger amounts of some foods since going Whole 30?
