Day 5 of Reintroduction: Weight Gain & Frustration in Whole30 Reintroduction Posted March 10, 2020 Please note I am not a medical expert, but I would recommend that you speak with a licensed physician about your metal health and medication. On another note, try to focus on how you feel and not just what the number of the scale tells you. I know it's hard (I'm a scale-follower myself) but I've noticed that even though my scale number isn't always what I want it to be, when I'm honest with myself, I look and feel so much better after Whole 30 than ever before. I would suggest reading/listening to Melissa's book; Food Freedom. I think one of the most important/hardest parts of Whole 30 is to get yourself away from the diet mentality. For me in the past it's always been about "am I being good (restraining myself) or being bad (not restraining myself), but having lifelong food freedom is about eating what you want when it's worth it and passing when it's not. It's a hard lesson to learn after a lifetime of diet mentality, but honestly it is incredibly freeing and it makes you feel like you're not deprived and always in control. I hope this helps, hang in there and book a doctor appointment!
