    The calendar is just a general guideline. Some people follow it exactly, some not at all, and some follow parts of it bit not all of it. Eliminating some items before you start can make a difference in the symptoms you feel or put you a little ahead of the timeline.

    Agreed...but I also found the expectations "calendar" pretty funny, in a slightly snarky dark way. It made me laugh and also a bit comforted knowing that other folks have struggles at different times in this journey. The explanations of why I might experience these things was also very helpful. It's an individual journey, but it can be a supportive shared experience too. Thanks all - cheers!

    jmcbn,
    If you someone finds themselves behind the timeline by a number of days in some cases, might this suggest that their system may be more 'messed up' and in need of a longer than Whole30?

    Can I just comment here that not everyone follows the timeline so if you're NOT experiencing the listed 'symptoms' you're not necessarily doing it wrong - also sometimes the expectation actually brings it on, which isn't always the best thing

    Comparison is the thief of joy - enjoy your OWN journey!!

    @Fernsk there's no hard and fast rule, so just whatever makes sense to you, I guess. Think about how you'd use these things in a typical meal -- if you're having bread, and you'd mostly just want a piece or two at the end of the meal to sop up the last bit of sauces on a plate, you might just have slightly less of everything  so you wouldn't be too stuffed to have the bread. If you serve something over rice, even though rice is not a vegetable, for the average person, it's kind of taking the place of vegetables, so instead of having your food over cauli rice or over a potato, you have it over rice. Just try to eat these things the way you normally would want to have them and do the best you can to build your meal around that.

    Grape skin - This is why red wine is red and there are actually a lot of people allergic to a protein in the skin called LTP, some people have a reaction to the fermentation of the skins only, others have trouble with grapes too (some fruit juices contain a splash of grape juice). Tannins - Also found in grape skin but most people have tasted them in black tea. Histamine & Tyramine - Found in aged and fermented foods, red wine is usually fermented for longer. Alcohol - Often dismissed, if the red wine you drink is higher in alcohol than the white, it may just be the alcohol.

    I'm not sure why the order is different in the book and on the website, but it really doesn't matter what order you use, the important part is to go back to whole30 eating for at least two days between different categories of foods, more if you have a reaction that lingers for more than two days.
    The point of reintroducing foods is to help you decide what foods you want to include in your regular diet going forward. If you love cheese and are okay with not feeling great after you eat it, it may be worth it to you to have it sometimes. Whole30's position is that none of the foods that you've left out for the last 30 days are ever truly good for you, whether you have a noticeable reaction to them or not -- but it's also understood that food is not always simply fuel, that there are emotional and cultural influences on what we eat, and that we are not always going to only eat healthy stuff 100% of the time. If you haven't read it before, I suggest you look for the three part series on the whole30 blog titled, Dear Melissa: What do you eat? It's a good explanation of how she has discovered which foods are worth it to her and which aren't.

    You can actually reintroduce dairy and sugar together if you want. Here's a quote from the reintroduction article:
     
     
    Also, have you read the Slow Roll Reintroduction article?

    The point is to test things as isolated from each other as possible. On the flip side if you have an extreme reaction to something you might want to add more than 2 days of compliance before you introduce something again to ensure you are feeling as good as you were when you started. You really want the best data possible so you can make well informed decisions in your post Whole30 world. Also for many that don't have immediate reactions there can be a build up over time reaction. Take me for example. I had no obvious physical issues to anything I introduced (except when I've accidentally had soy - makes me angry). However I know that if I were to put gluten back in my diet on a regular basis I would start feeling foggy in the afternoons again. I also have found out that eating non-gluten grains regularly makes me feel pudgy and sluggish after a while. Knowing these things helps me decide if something I might eat is worth it or not.

    Hi Hutlifr.
     
    In your context, it sounds like you already know how the dairy you want to eat affects you.  In that case, there's no reason for you to do a controlled reintroduction on that food group: you've already got the information you need.   The idea behind reintroduction is to test for when you don't know how a food group impacts you physically/psychologically, and/or you want to know how eating that food will affect you.
     
    Some folks separate out different types of dairy on different days. For example, they don't know how cow's milk impacts them vs. sheep's/goat's milk. Those people would do three different cow's milk products on one day, and then three different sheep's milk products on another day.  Or a pasteurized dairy day vs. raw dairy day.  Soft cheese day vs. hard cheese day.
     
    It's your experiment of 1: test for what makes sense in the context of what you already know, don't yet know and/or want to discover.
