    Junebug2015 got a reaction from megbeveridge in "Who's starting 1/1?" Reintro Group   
    Reposting again with my NSVs and plan for reintroduction:
    NSVs
    Developed automatic habits for meal planning and grocery shopping. This led to eating out MUCH less, generally being more prepared for work (by having breakfast and lunch ready every day) and throwing out less food. Energy and sleep were markedly better. I always had trouble falling asleep in less than an hour and a half, and this has changed after Whole30. I also found I had more consistent energy and focus throughout the day. Elimination of gas and bloating, but unfortunately not a lot of progress in "regularity" (which has always been an issue for me). I feel much slimmer and lost 5 lbs (from 132-127). I haven't taken my measurements, but I think my body composition has changed for the better. Reintro Plan
    Day 1 - legumes. I had peanuts with breakfast, edamame with lunch, and black beans with dinner. Definitely noticed increased gassiness (bad sign), but also noticed on day 2 (today) that the fiber helped *ahem* move things along. So I think legumes might be good to add in, but in limited quantities (maybe only one serving a day). Planning to have a drink tonight with friends even though it's technically a strict Whole30 day. Is this going to really mess with my reintro?  Day 4 - so torn! Since it's the Super Bowl, I'm debating which food group I want to add back in for indulgence purposes. Heavily leaning towards dairy so I can have my beloved cheese again... any ideas?

    I had the same tiger blood experience / timing as you! It quieted down after I reintroduced a heavy workout routine last week, so I'm hoping that as my body adjusts to the extra physical activity, the energy burst will come back.
    For me, bloating and gassiness happens after I've been eating a lot of cruciferous and / or raw vegetables. Maybe try cooking your veggies more or straying from broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts (unfortunately, my favorite ones...).

    I would start small to get yourself used to eating first thing, then gradually make the meal bigger as you become used to it. I would also try some "unconventional" breakfasts outside of eggs dishes. For me, sometimes it can be difficult to stomach eggs in the morning, but a fresh salad with protein might be a bit more palatable.
    This is my second Whole30, and I find that my breakfasts are always small at the beginning (only two eggs) to get myself used to eating a lot of calories in the morning. By the end, I'm usually okay with eating 3 or 4 eggs.

    Hi everyone! Checking in because I also started the Whole30 yesterday. I've attempted one Whole30 before in 2016, but only made it to Day 21. Even though I didn't finish the program, it had major effects on how I ate and shopped. I'm ready to make it through the entire 30 days this time and to have a successful reintro period.
    I'm feeling very motivated, especially since I was travelling home from a NYE wedding yesterday and was not entirely sure I would even be able to start on 1/1 as planned. I was able to find compliant food in the airport (hardboiled eggs and some fruit) and cobble together lunch from my pantry / freezer (frozen riced cauliflower with tuna and kalamata olives) before getting groceries later in the evening. It was empowering to know I was able to make compliant choices even in the absence of ideal circumstances. Let's do this!

    How's everyone doing? Halfway through Day 3! I made these great buffalo ground turkey patties for work lunches this week (mine were easier to flatten than mold into meatballs), paired with sliced green peppers, celery, baby carrots, and a half of an avocado. They traveled very well and were super easy to pull together last night. Yum!
    Recipe at link (IGNORE the addition of blue cheese at the end, which is obviously non-compliant, and subbing out ground turkey for ground chicken was delicious). https://physicalkitchness.com/whole30-baked-buffalo-chicken-meatballs/
