  1. It’s gotten a bit better, though I do still burp a handful of times a day when I rarely ever did before. I have incorporated some kobucha. Speaking of... why is kombucha legal, but not vanilla extract? Kombucha labels indicate that has alcohol in it. Here is a rough idea of my menu. I didn’t track portions. I regularly ate pretty much all of these things in my normal diet, though I wasn’t eating as many eggs b/c I was skipping breakfast on weekdays. Day 5: Egg muffin with veggies and compliant sausage patty Pulled pork with salsa and guacamole and chipotle roasted sweet potatoes Shrimp and salad with compliant dressing Day 6: Same breakfast Shredded chicken, sweet potato, cauliflower rice and compliant curry sauce Taco salads (no dairy, beans, dressing or tortillas) Macadamias and kombucha as a snack Day 7: Egg scramble with onion, mushroom and spinach hash browns with shallot and peppers Coconut crusted mahi nuggets (used almond flour and unsweetened coconut), cumin roasted carrots and salad with compliant dressing Tritip Chili (no beans) with avocado Day 8 (this day the burping started to decrease a little): Egg casserole with potatoes, compliant hamand veggies Buffalo chicken soup (chicken, onion, peppers, spaghetti squash and franks). Chopped celery and cucumber with guacamole Spaghetti squash with meatballs and compliant marinara Pistachios and hard boiled egg as a snack
  2. I am on Day 6 of my first Whole 30. My energy is fine, no real cravings to speak of, and I am sleeping alright. The only “bad” experience I am having so far is burping. I’m talking BIG and LOUD. Usually between meals and isn’t accompanied by any noticeable stomach irritation or bloating. I rarely burp and when I do, they are quiet. I am eating a variety of foods, so there isn’t one particular item I can point to as a cause. I also regularly eat a broad spectrum of healthy foods, so I haven’t introduced anything new or shocking to my system that I can think of. I have been using ghee, which is new to me (but I normally cook with grass fed butter). I am also probably not quite hitting the ideal portion of fat with each meal. I find that I reach satiation much more quickly than normal for me. About an hour after I eat these smaller portions, the burping starts. What’s going on with me?
  3. There is some info out there that indicates green beans can be pretty inflammatory for some folks. I’m no expert, I have just done a lot of reading on the subject and self testing. Might be something your body doesn’t like.

    Itchy skin

    I’m so itchy too! I am on Day 5. Scalp, neck, ears, hands and feet... all itching. Is this a thing?
