    I'll admit that during my first Whole30, I had the same experience (things moving way too fast) for about the first 6-8 weeks of my transition. I did the Whole30 for 30 full days, then stuck mostly to it, and things still took a long time to even out. The healing process and transition of gut bacterial balance can take a long time, and I don't think it was anything I was eating or not eating - I think it was just my system getting used to not eating so much oatmeal, yogurt, and whole grains. Not a very scientific explanation, but without lab testing/stool testing to see what the gut environment looks like, it's hard to say what's going on.
    Removing some potentially problematic foods for a few days (like nuts and seeds) or swapping out some veggies/fruit you are eating a lot of for different varieties may give you a clue, but it's really hard in these instances to pinpoint exactly what's what.
