Hi all! So I have yet to actually start a whole 30, but it is on the bucket list. My issue now is that I work at a restaurant 9-5, and there is a time 11:00-2:00 which is our "busy time" and we are not allowed to order from the kitchen, hardly allowed to eat food. By 2:00, I'm starving; our break is simply a quick second to run to the back and scarf food down, in which I tend to make poor decisions later due to the fluctuation in blood sugar and the stress of being hungry/worrying what to eat and when. Any suggestions and tips on how to combat this.. Thanks!
Hi, I'm starting the whole30 this Friday, July 1... Yay! My work schedule is pretty normal. However, on Monday, July 4 to Tuesday, July 5 I will be working on overnight shift from 12am to 8am (Tuesday morning). Should I be eating during that overnight shift? How do I go about eating the day before the overnight shift (Monday), the overnight shift, and the rest of that day (Tuesday)? Please help! I'm quite confused on what I should do! I know I'll be sleeping the rest of the day on Tuesday. I don't know if this will throw off my whole30 schedule...? Thanks so much!!! - Amanda
This will be my first time doing the Whole30 program, although I already keep a gluten and dairy free diet most of the time. I need to take it to the next level. Here are my reasons for doing the program: I get frequent, severe sinus infections when I eat dairy. My under-the-tongue glands swell when I eat various grain-based foods. I thought it was just wheat and my symptoms were very mild for a few years but they've become severe in the last month. Within a few hours of eating/drinking anything grain-based, my glands are throbbing. I need to listen to my body and stop giving it things it doesn't want. My mom is battling cancer and in her journey, has learned the true value of caring for your body through food choices. I, too, have learned a lot about the effects of less-than-great food choices through watching her and observing myself. Thus, the only reason I still make bad choices is out of sugar addiction or self-destructive tendencies. My hope is that after completing my first Whole30, I'll be able to see a big enough difference that I will be motivated by the benefits of living a whole life, rather than being motivated by the pain/exhaustion of making less-than-healthy daily choices. I'm 23, about to graduate college, and I manage an office that must remain open 24/7 for student safety. My schedule is all over the place, I never get near enough sleep, and I'm surrounded by booze and peers who are as far from a whole30 lifestyle as can be. It won't be easy, but I'm tired of feeling horrid half the time from sugar, grains, and booze. There may never be a perfect time to do this, so no excuses from here on out. Now is as good a time as any, and this way I'll by happier and healthier by graduation:D
rudeandnotginger posted a topic in Whole30 Meal PlanningI'm on Day 15 of my first W30, and I'd like to optimize my meal schedule. Advice would be appreciated! Thanks! My questions based on the proposed schedule below: Does the spacing and frequency of my meals look alright? Can my M4/dinner substitute as my post-workout meal? Or should I be eating something in the car on the half-hour drive home from the gym to get the most out of my recovery? Can I just have a little more starch and a little less fat at dinner and try to eat within an hour of my workout to get the same results? My workouts aren't that intense. I know, I know, processed foods are terrible, but will it kill me to have an Epic bar as a pre-workout meal a couple of times a week? I don't have time to stop and microwave anything, or eat anything with a fork. Is a salted, cold HB egg my only eat-while-driving option for pre-workout? Should I be worried about eating M4 so close to bed? I can't think of a way to eat dinner any earlier. Note: I'm starving when I wake up but my current schedule doesn't have me eating M1 until 3 hours later. My schedule now: Wake up at 5AM, shower, rush out the door at 6:20AM. Between 6:20 and 8AM I'm in the car, on the bus, or walking (i.e. limited and/or no opportunity for eating) - drink a little bulletproof coffee during commute M1 when I get to work (8AM) - finish rest of bulletproof coffee M2 (12PM) M3 (4PM) 5PM-6PM on the bus Pre-workout meal in my car as I drive to the gym 6:15PM-7:15PM workout (30 min. moderate intensity bodyweight workout or 1 hour of yoga*) Half an hour to drive home from the gym Prepare quick M4, sit down to eat around 8PM Asleep by 10PM *if I do the yoga class from 7-8PM then I don't get to eat dinner until 8:45PM My proposed schedule: Wake up at 5AM, eat M1 at 5:30AM, leave for work at 6:20 M2 at 10:30AM M3 at 3:30PM 5PM-6PM on the bus Pre-workout meal in my car as I drive to the gym 6PM-7:15PM workout Half an hour to drive home from the gym Prepare quick M4, sit down to eat around 8PM Shower at night to save time in the morning Asleep by 10PM
