    @michellenyc Same here! Like you said... I too am feeling so good I don't want to mess it up either I reintroduced dairy (cheese and paneer) but I keep it to least bit possible.

    @JoyByName Thank you are your insights! After my first 30 days I felt great and it inspired me to continue till 60 My whole60 plan includes Dahl and beans ( in moderation) so I won't need any specific reintroduction for those as such. I plan on reintroducing dairy first and see how it goes... what are your thoughts about brown rice?

    @SugarcubeOD The things you said make sense. Will read (a lot!) and plan accordingly. Thanks!

    @SugarcubeOD I was 171 lbs when I started Whole30 and now I m at 157.4 lbs Weightloss was not the main reason though. I have blood pressure and a family history of diabetics. That's the main reason I started this plan, coz I realized how careless I had gotten over the years about my food Eversince I started Whole30 I found myself to be more energetic, less cranky and peaceful. And the cherry on top is the compliments I Hv been getting about myself from my family and friends I initially thought it will be difficult for me to do the first 30 days, but I managed and got inspired to do 60! I m still feeling better, except for the a bit more hungrier part, but my main fear is that, if I stop this plan I'll go back to all the negatives, like health and weight gain and overall stuff, I am working really hard to maintain this 'nirvana' kind of my mental and physical being, and m scared to lose it I had read about the reintroduction in the book, but it slipped my mind somehow! I'll go back and read It again. meanwhile, any advise on the thoughts I just mentioned above and the reintroduction, will be highly appreciated! Thanks.

    @malosa - Thanks! Yeah, I don't eat eggs at all. And I stopped all dairy products too since the time I started Whole30. Vegetarians don't Hv many option left after that, no eggs no meat no fish. I did some research and found out that beans and legumes are ok with vegetarian Whole30. So my food list included beans, Indian Dahl, tofu, nuts, lots of salads, zoodles with macadamia pesto, roasted butternut squash and sweet potatoes and some soup. I absolutely love this soup... it's too good! Try it out! http://www.theglowingfridge.com/spicy-vegan-black-bean-soup/ I hope this helps.

    @SugarcubeOD Oh! But I don't add any additional sugar or sugar substitutes to my protein shake, which I take just once a day. Almond milk, hemp seed protein powder and a banana ( coz without banana I am sure I won't be able to drink it at all) I am a true vegetarian, no eggs at all. No meat, no fish, no chicken. Only veggies, beans, tofu. Is there another brand of hemp protein which is better than this one?

    michellenyc I used this hemp protein brand ... Manitoba 62750 Harvest Hemp Pro 70 Protein Supplement, 16 Ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002CPVTH4/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_apip_ATBKK4fbqqxMz. I add it to almond milk, a banana, and some strawberries or pineapple chunks. I m doing it again this month, Whole30. Didn't want to take a break just yet I eat beans, tofu, nuts and Indian Dahl, as my protein sources, and the hemp protein shake as well.

    Hey michellenyc , I did the vegan/vegetarian version. I don't eat eggs, fish or any other kind of meat, ever. My protein options were quite limited, hemp seed protein powder, tofu, beans, Indian Dahl, nuts. Lots of veggies, and roots like yams, sweet potatoes... i hope this helps...
