Hi there everyone!
I finished my Whole30 last week and chose to reintroduce legumes on day 31. I ate black beans with lunch and then hummus and carrots for a snack.
I felt fine the next two days after that. I didn’t want to reintroduce peanut butter on the legumes day because in the past i would always get a stomach ache after having it. But on the day I was supposed to reintroduce gluten-free grains i decided to give peanutbutter a try after all (which I’m not even entirely sure if that was ok... but I gave it two days)
It did give me a slight stomach ache which was gone as fast as it came - but I did notice.
Anywho long story short i think it was on the day I had peanutbutter (or maybe the day after I reintroduced legumes the first time) I noticed that the skin around my mouth/on my chin started to break out a little. Yesterday and today I’ve noticed that there are some zits on my forehead also. Nothing crazy, I don’t deal with acne thank God, but I didn’t get breakouts on the whole30. My skin actually was pretty great after around day 13 of whole30... (I think the breakouts then we’re caused by dairy though.)
Would you suggest I should go back on the Whole30 until the breakouts have stopped and then try legumes again?
Or should i wait until the breakouts are gone and reintroduce something else?
I appreciate your guys‘ help!! So glad to have done the whole30 and to now be able to come here and get help from this awesome community!
Hey @LAshley! I’m preparing to start whole30 soon too!! I did it once Blackmon September and o can’t wait to feel as amazing as I did back then!! Don’t worry about eggs, if you’re not usually sensitive to them it shouldn’t bother you! At least it didn’t bother me.
About your concern with nightshades, there’s actually a PDF on Whole30 without nightshades... I’ll try to link it on here but if I can’t just type in nightshades and I’m pretty sure it’ll lead you to the whole30 shopping list...
YOU CAN DO THIS!!! It may be hard but the results are so worth it.
