emmak Posted December 26, 2019 Share Posted December 26, 2019 Despite trying my best to eat healthy, exercise more, and avoiding food when I'm not hungry, I'm not feeling my best and am very interested in doing my first Whole30. However, there's a challenge I'm hoping you all can help me with - I work as a bartender in an Italian restaurant/lounge/cocktail bar. I'm sick of all the food, so it's easy to choose to eat a salad, other compliant meal, or bring my own dinner. What I'm more worried about is the alcohol and the hours. I have to taste drinks as part of my job, so I'm not going to be able to cut that out completely, but drinking is a big part of the culture among my coworkers and is a primary part of any non-work activity with my social circle. My partner is doing the Whole30 as well, but works a 9-5 Monday-Friday job, while I work more like 6pm-3am 4 nights a week. Any tips on avoiding the booze without isolating myself from my community? How do you manage meal planning and compliant eating with unusual hours? Thanks in advance for any advice! I'm going to figure this out and hopefully see great results with my weight, my sleep, my eczema, my energy, and my appetite! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
