    Reintroduction: Alcohol question...

    Hi all, this is it! Day 31! I won't get into how awesome Whole30 was in unexpected ways, because that could take forever, but instead I just have a very timely & tactical query about the first thing I want to experiment with reintroducing, which is sulfate-free biodynamic red wine. I'm having some friends over for dinner tonight and besides the sulfate-free wine, everything else today and tonight will still be W30-compliant. I read in the W30 book that in the reintro phase you really need to consumer quite a bit of the group you're experimenting with in order to really get a gauge on its effects on your body. Melissa writes specifically that if you want to test dairy, for instance, you'd incorporate dairy into each of your 3 meals on one day then go back to 2-5 days of W30 to see how dairy affects your system. So, my first question is: how much of the sulfate-free wine should I have tonight to properly understand how it affects my system? (Unlike the dairy example, surely I don't have to have it all 3 meals today (haha) — but how many glasses should I have tonight? Is 1 enough? 2? 3? I am a 5'4", 110 lb woman.)

    Day 4-10 abs magically appeared! Day 12: abs disappeared?

    Reduce* bloat ("residence" was a typo! Fat fingers) :) Appreciate any & all guidance/tips. Thanks so much!
  3. Hi all, I’m on day 12. So far all as expected — went through “carb/sugar flu” in the first week. By day 7 energy started coming back. This morning, on day 12, felt more energy in the morning than usual (even pre-W30). So generally I’m happy with what I’m experiencing so far... But! An unexpected amazing thing that happened from day 4 til about yesterday was that I lost all this lower and upper abdomen bloat I didn’t know I had! Visually, my abs looked like abs! I was feeling like hot stuff, if I’m honest — it’s sort of what got me through the terrifically low energy days last week. Today, however, my abs look back to normal (pre-day 1). I hate to whine about this but I want that back! Is there W30-compliant food I may be overdoing it on that I should cut back on to residence bloat? Less fruit? Less baby carrots? Less homemade dips (eggplant or sweet potato-based) I’ve been making while I’m avoiding hummus/legumes? And similarly are there things I should be eating more of?
