orthodoxmom3 Posted January 16, 2014 Share Posted January 16, 2014 My husband works 12-13 12 hours shifts per month. With a bizarre day on, day off, day on schedule at times, this really makes for an IMPOSSIBLILITY for him to do three full meals a day or to have them at any set time other than our evening family meal. We are very consistent with a 5:00 evening meal. Other than that, he usually takes snacks to work.... I try to make them balanced with meat, vegetables and nuts or guacamole for a healthy fat but he usually can not eat them together...sometimes he doesn't even get to eating until morning before he comes home. Then when he gets home, typically he goes right to bed, especially if he works again that night. Then he may get up at 4 to exercise....if he does, he gets up, exercises for 10-20 , showers and joins us for dinner. On his days off...if he worked the night before, he comes home and sleeps till 2....eats something , and then eats again with us around 5ish..... So does anyone have suggestions on what accommodations to make for this kind of schedule? Please don't even suggest he make himself eat a meal at work because he really can not. Help please? I'd really like to do the whole30 with him in about a month and I'm trying to figure out how to make it all work... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
