    Persistent Diarrhea after re-intro

    Brit1389 i have the same problem was on whole30 for 37 days. Reintroduced Foods 5 days on to the next food of reintroduction. I have morning bouts of diarrhea I kept a log, dairy was a problem. Having Dairy just that once triggered having diarrhea and I continue to have the problem. Going to see my natural path dr. To find out why this continues to happen. I hope by Now as I see this is dated back it 2017 you where able to solve your issue
  2. I finished my whole30 yesterday and I feel great! I had 3 bad days. Day 2 I had a sugar crash. Day 14 I felt as though I never slept, dragged myself around all day. Day 19 same as day 14. After that I was feeling great. Tons of energy no more inflammation in my body. No aches and pains! My skin looks fresh and I am sleeping much better. I lost 8.6 lbs that's huge for me as I don't weigh a ton but wanted to get rid of 10 lbs for years and that was not the purpose of being on whole30 at least for me. I have no cravings don't miss sugar and certainly won't eat like I did before this program. I am glad I purchase Mellisa's book they helped me understand what the program was all about. I used her recipes for the whole family and where they needed pasta I cooked it for them. Very grateful for her books. I am more careful about checking out everything I purchase as there is sugar in everything. I will be avoiding process foods as I have now learned what it does to my body. I have decided that I am sticking to it for 45 days to get the full benefit of whole 30 and start weaning myself back to at least 1 percent milk in my coffee for the first 4 to 7 days and move on to gluten free oatmeal (as long as nothing bothers me with milk) and have that for 4-7 days moving on to the next thing I miss. For those that are skeptical don't be. It works. I have never felt this good for for a long time.

    Day 1 completed

    This is Day 14 for me I have doing very well on the program but.. why on day 14 I am so tired? I felt full on energy on day 3 you couldn't stop me to sit down. Now my legs are dragging and Im so exhusted. Have been cooking via the whole30 cookbooks. i have to say I have never been a big meat eater nor eggs but I gotta do what I have to do to stay on the program for another 16 days. I eat eggs with veggies and compliant bacon for breakfest.. Lunches can be chicken or Turkey on lettuce with veggies and a fruit. Dinners are from the whole30 cookbooks. Im full of protein! I do have a handful of mixed unsalted nuts daily. Any reason why i am so tired? Also could use some ideas on lunches! Not much I can do about breakfast.

    Day 3

    Im on day 3 being almost 63 thought it was going to be a lot harder to break bad habits. My natural-path Dr. recommended the whole 30 to see what is aggravating my stomach. Day 2 was tough. I felt like I woke up and never slept. Looking at what the thread of what people have said on the forum, I have to guess I am having sugar crashes. I am not sure why on night 2 I could not sleep, kept waking up. Would this have to do with the fact that no sugar carbs or dairy? I purchased 3 of Mellissa Hartwig books. Thankfully I had ingredients in my home for the first 2 days. Went to our local Whole Foods Market in NH and there are so many ingredients they dont have. I spent 2 hours in the store reading ingredients. Be nice if Whole Foods would have an aisle to suport Whole30 foods to make it easier for those on the program. Coffee is tough without anything in it ( normally take milk only ) but i did pick up a can of Coconut milk without sugar. Hoping it makes my mornings better while on the program. I picked up bullet proof coffee beans. Since this is only my 3rd day, I have to say I don't miss dairy or sweets. However pasta and bread is very difficult not to have, as I have never been a big meat eater or a fan of eggs but I am eating them. Thank goodness I can have some nuts trying to keep it at a 1/4 cup a day ( no peanuts.) I walk 15 to 20 minutes after dinner. Strange but one thing I have noticed, and maybe its me but don't feel bloated just wonder if that's too early to see any results. I like challenges, so am hoping this attitude of mine stays positive on the program.
