I was journaling and linked my bloating /cramping / GI issues to certain veggies (broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts) , and realized I can only have a large salad every other day. Once I limited my salad intake, and eliminated the above veggies I listed ... almost all of my GI issues are gone. I realized I cannot have them raw or cooked.
First and second rounds I had horrible calf cramps at night. Third round I had none, and so far, on my fourth round none also. I attribute it to adjusting to whole food eating, trying to add enough salt and get enough water. I found that I was eating a lot LESS sodium then pre-whole30. I had to add more salt to certain meals. I also added in natural calm magnesium supplement, coconut water after intense workouts, and journaled to see any other relationship to the cramps. The good news is the went away after the first week.
I'm no expert but I would say they are not compliant due to the dextrose. "Dextrose is the name of a simple sugar that is made from corn and is chemically identical to glucose, or blood sugar. Dextrose is often used in baking products as a sweetener, and can be commonly found in items such as processed foods and corn syrup."
