Working an Odd Schedule and Whole 30

Recommended Posts

I work a rotating shift schedule. It requires me to work 7 days in a row often 12 hours a day. I have often used food as a tool to stay awake, fall asleep, and particularly use sugar to deal with job/schedule stress.
I just started my Whole30 yesterday and am wondering if there are other shift workers out there and if they have any tips to help me. 
Thanks so much!

Welcome!  If you google 'whole30 shift work' you'll get a multi-part article on the Whole30 site as well as other forum threads with the same subject.  There are lots of shift/night workers who have done the program and I'm sure you'll find lots of tips on those previous threads.  You can also go have a look at nom nom paleo who is a friend of Whole30 (www.nomnompaleo.com) as she used to be a night shift pharmacist for a hospital and she talks a lot about how she navigated food and the night shift.
