  1. Hi everyone! This is my second time around doing a Whole30, almost a year apart! I'm on Day 9 and feeling great! However, an annoying situation is arising...I'm freaking out because I'm going on a 3.5 day trip to NYC in a little over a week for a work conference. The conference will have breakfasts and lunches catered. I'll be in a hotel with no access to a stove. I'm also a young professional and the draw of having free breakfast and lunches for a few days is quite tempting even though I know they won't be compliant. Any advice on what to do? Has anyone ever asked their work to provide a per diem so they can eat outside a conference rather than partaking in the catering? Thanks!!

    NYC Whole 30 Tips

    Hi everyone! I recently started a blog and went through the research of contacting Sweetgreen, Dig Inn, The Juice Shop and Hu Kitchen for their ingredient lists. I picked out a few dishes from their menu as part of a 7 day meal-plan that are compliant with Whole 30. This forum was really helpful to me as I did my research! I also recently noticed that Le Pain Quotidien is a great on-the-go meal spot, as they use olive oil in their cooking. Link to the blog post below and I am @busyfitcity on Instagram. Hope anyone in NYC on the Whole 30 finds this useful! Katie
  3. Hi! I'm doing my second Whole 30, and I had a couple of moments where I was sure I had to start over. I'm not sure if these slip-ups are too insignificant to count as actually falling off the wagon, but I figured I could find an answer here. I live in New York City and have a very busy schedule that hardly allows for grocery shopping or exercise, but I've managed to follow the rules in the book when it comes to eating out, which I need to do a lot, so I rely on plain salads, steamed veggies, and rotisserie chicken. There was a moment at the beginning where I accidentally bought non-clarified butter. It was hormone-free and completely clean. Since this only counted for about 10% of my eating in the first week, I didn't know whether to consider the next day "starting over." Regardless, I trouped on...and then, today, went out for Japanese late in the day with some friends. I probably should have listened to my low blood sugar during the heatwave and bolted earlier to grab something compliant, but I assumed that the rules in the book applied to this restaurant - i.e. maybe I could order some plain steamed veggies and grilled chicken with lemon on the side. No grilled meat. No steamed veggies. No way to order the ramen toppings (like baby bok choy and poached egg) on top of another entree. They all came with "sauce." I ordered steamed broccoli with garlic and a plain salad. The salad was just mesclun greens, no biggie, but I was ravenous. After a few bites of the broccoli, I asked if it was steamed with garlic like it said on the menu - nope, it was drenched in oyster sauce! I paid the bill, ran down the block to the Little Beet (the third time this weekend I had kale and fennel and chicken at the Little Beet, grrrr), and still wasn't full. An hour later, I had black coffee, a sweet potato, and kale chips. At that point, I knew I was hungry, not craving. So...were these two bites of non-clarified butter and msg-loaded sauce real slips, or should I count tomorrow as Day 16 regardless? Asking!

    I am new to the whole30 and am a huge lover of all things involving carbs and cheese. I eat a cream based pasta at least 2 nights a week and pizza is my favorite food. Oh, and i'm a smoker......very nervous to start, but am excited to see what it does for my body, as i am almost always congested and have had digestive issues for years. Any suggestions that are MUST HAVES for my shopping list for whole foods this weekend? Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi all, I am planning on starting my first Whole30 on January 1st. I have been researching paleo/clean eating/whole30 for a few years now and incorporating some of the concepts into my diet but I decided it was time to put my money where my mouth is. As an incentive to myself to stick with this, I am setting aside a $50 gift card to Barnes and Noble as a reward to myself for when I finish. It is going to be tough for me because I am an absolute sugar addict. Living in NYC also adds some unique challenges. Aside from everything being expensive as all hell, I can only take home from the grocery store what I can carry. I am hoping to take this on as a challenge to really plan out my weekly meals so I can take advantage of my resources. Not ordering lunch at work will also be tough as nothing really beats the convenience of Seamless, lol. I already have a pretty active workout schedule in place but it isn't helping me shed the pounds. Hopefully this is going to do it for me. 80% of your progress is diet, right? Best of luck to all of you who are taking on this challenge with me. I look forward to seeing you around the boards. Best, Abby

    NYC and Whole30

    Hey guys, I just attempted to tackle NYC on days 20-22 of my Whole30 and it was HARD. Read here for the full experience and give me your feedback please! I'd love to hear from others that have struggled with travel and cheating....
  8. I'm having a hard time finding affordable meat in NYC. The prices at farmers markets and whole foods are outrageous. I'm looking for beef, chicken, and pork. Maybe some lamb. I'd be willing to drive up to 2 hours out of the city. Thanks!
  9. Hello fellow Whole30ers! I'm embarking on a whole foods, paleoesque lifestyle in NYC! I thought this would be a great kick start. Thanks so much to Dallas & Melissa for such an awesome, free program! I need some accountability so I'm going to be blogging about this experience because I want some accountability: Please feel free to check it out and share anything that helps you:)
