    Hibachi Restaurant

    Hey y'all! How's it going for all of you? I'm on my second day of my first Whole30 and I am loving it so far! I think I must still be in the honeymoon phase because I'm finding it very easy to say no to sugary, bready, cheesy things and I don't have any cravings. Has anyone else had this same experience? I'm guessing it'll get harder soon. Anyway: during the thirty days, my friend's birthday is happening in a week and we're all going out to eat at a hibachi restaurant called Sumo in Ithaca, NY. Check out the menu here: Also Easter is tomorrow and my grandma sent cookies for the whole family, which I don't have any problem resisting (at least for now, we'll see how hard it is tomorrow) and I'm the only one in my family doing the Whole30 and I don't want my parents to judge me or get worried that I'm "dieting" or trying to lose weight. I'm not. I simply want to feel better and have more energy. Also my mom's birthday is in a few weeks. And I'm taking a road trip next weekend. So any advice for eating out at a hibachi restaurant (does anything on the menu look Whole30-compliant, or should I bring my own food but then have to explain it to them?), road tripping while on the Whole30, and dealing with holidays/birthdays? I really don't think that resisting the food will be a problem because I'm very committed, but how do you deal with defying social norms and not eating cake around family and friends on special occasions?
  4. About to start my first Whole30 starting April 2nd and trying to get prepared. The thing I keep fearing is I work in a casual restaurant. Snacking has been a huge problem for me. Anyone in the same boat have any tips?
  5. I am starting the Whole30 this week but I have concerns about my lifestyle/work schedule. I work as a server in a fine dining restaurant- my hours are vampire-like. I go in between 1pm and 2pm, eat "lunch" with the rest of the staff at 3:30pm, then work nonstop until anywhere between 1am and 2:30am. One of the biggest problems/bad habits for me has been snacking on unhealthy things at 2am when I am done with work and before going to bed because I am so hungry. The restaurant is pretty intense and I don't have another opportunity to eat a real meal until we are totally totally done. I wanted to see if anyone else has a similar work schedule and if so, what their tips are for succeeding at the Whole30. Thanks!
  6. My family is going out to dinner at an Afghani restaurant tonight for my sister's birthday, and, being a good little Whole30er, I called the restaurant before they opened (when they wouldn't be busy) so I could ask all of my questions about compliant oils, marinades and seasonings, etc. Just based on ingredients, Afghani food seems like a good choice, because it's primarily grilled meat and vegetables -- and this restaurant even uses grass-fed beef and lamb! Anyway, the store manager told me that ALL of the meat is pre-marinated in corn oil, even the ground meats, but that customers with allergies in the past have ordered grilled chicken or beef with the marinade rinsed off before grilling, and that they haven't had any problems. I think I already know the answer, but... would this be acceptable? Otherwise I'll be going to this amazing restaurant and just eating a bowl of plain lettuce. Not the end of the world, but not exactly enjoying my life either. Can some moderators chime in on this? Thanks!
  7. Hi there! I'm 8 days in to my Whole30 and going really strong! I did however have a question about something I ate yesterday. My husband order frites (fries) from a local restaurant yesterday. I asked the server what they were cooked in and he said canola oil. I ate maybe 4 fries off of my husbands plate because I was thinking these were compliant. After reading a lot of things I now realize that while the ingredients were compliant these weren't because they were fried. Big question... Do I have to start over?
  8. Hi All, First off, I would like to say hello to everyone as I just joined the group. I have searched through the other threads but was unable to find the help I was looking for in regards to business travel. In particular, 100% business travel. Like many of you, I am sure, I travel for work 50-100% of the time (3 to 6 days a week typically) and this is often back-to-back weeks with only the weekends at home. I rarely travel to the same place twice and my locations range across the country from large cities like LA to smaller cities that have not much more than a Walmart and fast food. My company always has me stay at Marriott and options with kitchenettes are available 25-50% of the time. My work days usually hover around 10 hours at the office so there is little time to do much more than go straight out to dinner with the rest of my onsite team before going to bed and starting the day all over again. I am on day 6 of my Whole30 and realize I will not NEED to strictly follow this plan after my 30 days, but I would like to try to keep to it as best I can and only eat something outside of it maybe every other day or so at most as even though it has only been 6 days, I feel SOOO much better and would like to keep on this trend. So the question is: What do you other busy business traveler's do to keep a clean and healthy diet on the road, especially in those areas where the options are few and far between. Thank you!
  9. Hi everyone, Looking for a little advice here. I completed my first whole30 last week, with great successes. I am taking a few weeks "off" (but not really- I had a gluten free cake tasting for my wedding over the weekend and am having some dark chocolate. That's about it) and am planning on doing another one starting next week up until my wedding in November. Speaking of my wedding.. I work for a private speech therapy clinic with 2 amazing bosses that treat us like family. I have worked there for a year and there are only 10 of us on staff. My bosses are hosting a bridal shower for me next week, they just planned it this week, and I got the invitation today. Turns out, they planned it at a local vegetarian restaurant and there are basically no options for me. They know I'm gluten and soy free as I have been for several years, but I'm not one to talk about the whole30 unless asked so nobody knows I'm also not eating dairy, gf grains, legumes, etc. The only thing I might be able to eat is guacamole with crudite, and a plain greens salad with olive oil and vinegar. My dilemma is whether or not to speak to my bosses and tell them the situation, or just eat what I can and be grateful. I really don't want to seem demanding or impossible and ungrateful, but at the same time I know if I planned a shower and turns out the guest of honor couldn't eat anything and didn't tell me, I would have wished she had so I could find a better restaurant option. Not sure what to do and would really appreciate your thoughts!
  10. This is my first whole 30 and I'm going to a Korean restaurant tomorrow. I don't know Korean food well enough to know what might be safe to order. Any suggestions? Thank you!

    Do I have to start over?

    Pretty bummed. Been carefully watching what food I eat. Went to Chili's with a friend for lunch. Was specific in what I wanted and how it should be prepared. Got my chicken with pico on the side and plain broccoli. Took the first bite and the chicken was very sweet! Found out that they put a glaze on it that had sugar. Couldn't Ethan the broccoli either because it was sitting in the juice, as well. Only had one (1) bite. I have to start over, right? ARGH!

    Waitress/bartender help!

    I'm in the first week of my whole30 right now, and I need some input. I work as a bartender and waitress at a wine bar and restaurant. Part of my job is that I have to taste wines. I only started here a few weeks ago, so I am still learning our wine list and my boss does wine tastings at the end of a lot of shifts or at random during the night. I start work at 4, so I normally eat a snack before and they feed me dinner around 6. I'm allergic to wheat, so I generally am fed roasted veggies and sausage. But I am sure they aren't 100% compliant. My main question: since my diet in general is very low carb, very low sugar, is it worth it for me to do the whole30 given the fact that days I'm working (5-6 days a week) I'm going to be eating non-compliant food/drink? I can't decide if I should just go back to eating my usual diet or keep doing as good a whole30 as I can!
  13. I'm going to a friend's birthday dinner tomorrow (Day 5) at a high-end restaurant that I used to go to (as a bar) fairly regularly. I'm already going to face raised eyebrows from the bartenders when I have to pass up all the amazing cocktails. I don't want to exacerbate the awkwardness by asking a lot of questions about how the food is prepared. There are two items on the menu that look completely on-plan: Pan Seared Chicken Breast - fiddle head ferns, wild mushrooms, lemon-thyme oil Braised Durham Ranch Buffalo Shank - sauteed kale, parsnip puree, braising liquid reduction I'm planning to order the chicken. (For one thing, it's cheaper.) Also, the fact that the ingredients specify an infused oil kind of implies a good oil. Do I still have to ask? It's, in case you're curious or want to drool over the full menu.
  14. Hi everyone, Today is day 8 for me. I have been SUPER strict about everything I have eaten for the past 7 days. I've been eating the best grassfed beef, wild-caught not previously frozen fish, organic chicken, pasture-raised eggs, etc. I have largely stayed away from nuts/seeds (except in two lunch salads) and have not eaten fruits in excess, especially when I have had sugar cravings. I have been so good, I swear! Even my husband keeps telling me how proud he is of my willpower in going out to eat and being in social drinking situations over the weekend, where I had the recommended club soda with limes and lemons. But I am so annoyed/ frustrated/ upset right now. I went to a local, very expensive farm-to-table restaurant for a business lunch today. I called before to ask if they had a salad dressing sans sugar. After a long hold, the hostess said she confirmed that the vinegarette does not have added sugar. So I order the salmon salad: no marinade and salt and pepper only on the fish, no blue cheese, no bacon, with dressing on the side. Since I had already confirmed, I didn't feel the need to rehash with the waiter about the dressing. When I am mid-way through the salad that is now covered with about 3 tablespoons of dressing, the waiter interrupts to ask if I had a food allergy, because of the way I ordered the salmon. I said I was on a restrictive diet (no sugar, etc.) and he tells me that the dressing DOES in fact have sugar in it. Of course, I stopped eating immediately. So I technically cheated-- on day 8 of 30-- without even knowing. I even called before to check. The first week was so hard for me and I really want to cry. I feel like I got cheated, when I did the due diligence to protect myself. What do I do? Start over? Thanks for your help. Signed, Cheater
