I'm nearly done with my first Whole30 and beginning reintroduction on Friday. The guidance says not to plan anything important during the first week of reintroduction, if you're following the legumes/non-gluten/dairy/gluten schedule with 2-3 days off between each food reintroduction. So my question is, how slow should I roll in light of the fact that I have a half marathon 9 days into reintroduction?
I'm thinking dairy and gluten should wait until after the race, but if I pick one of the other groups to add in pre-race, would I be safer trying legumes, or gluten-free grains? Or should I wait on both? Go ahead and add both, since I have (in theory) enough time to recover if it goes sideways?
For background, I'm mainly hoping to identify any links between food and my fibromyalgia, anxiety, and general energy levels. I plan to start reintroduction with gluten-free alcohol and relaxing on added sugar paranoia (not trying to add in sugar, just not going to freak out if I accidentally pour marinara with sugar on my breakfast hash instead of salsa. Because that happened and I has to toss half my breakfast - luckily I realized before taking a bite!). I really miss beans and legumes (not a meat fan), but don't want to add them too close to the race if there's a risk I might suffer.
