  1. Thanks for the response. In terms of green beans, one of the sources I'm referring to is the Paleo Mom where she states "...agglutinins may be a concern for those with autoimmune disease following the autoimmune protocol," (source: https://www.thepaleomom.com/green-beans-peas/) which is part of my reason for avoiding green beans. I plan to reintroduce them at a later time. In terms of lettuce, I should have mentioned this in the original post but I am also avoiding uncooked vegetables (i.e., lettuce from salads) as my research on the Whole30 forums has found that that can cause issues as
  2. Yeah, the veggies are pretty limited. Like I said above, I'm on Whole30, AIP, low FODMAP, and avoiding raw veggies (as I'm testing to see if they are causing my stomach issues) which leaves me with a pretty low variety of veggies. I'm still eating a high quantity of veggies, but pretty low in variety. Green beans, kale, chard, and lettuces are excluded from the current diet I'm eating unfortunately
  3. Thanks for the response! I followed the meal template during my first two Whole30s but gained weight on both of them so I've started weighing my food to give myself a better understanding of portion size. In regards to the comments around fat, all of the meat I am eating has a lot of grams of fat in it (80% ground beef, chicken thighs have fat on them, and chicken wings have the skin on them which is a lot of fat). Is that fat not sufficient for the Whole30 diet and is it required to have added fat to each meal? I was under the impression that if my food has fat in it, such as a chic

  5. Hello! I'm on day 21 of my third whole30. I'm really trying to find foods that upset my stomach, make me constipated, and in general prevent my bowels from being regular, in addition to all the other great benefits of Whole30. In addition to doing the Whole30, I started doing the autoimmune protocol on this diet as well as trying to avoid all FODMAPs. As you can imagine, my selection of foods is very limited so I tend to eat the same thing. My main symptoms are constipation, irregular bowels, and bloating and am trying to avoid those. My daily meals throughout the last 21 days h
  6. Hello! I finished my 3rd Whole30 and I had a question about reintroduction. My Whole30 turned into a Whole 35 and on day 36 I had Chipotle (lettuce, fajitas, chicken, mild salsa, guac), day 40 I had inidian food (tandoori chicken and simosas and red velvet cake), day 42 red velvet cake, and day 43 chipotle again. My goal is to perform a reintroduction to test myself for foods the way the Whole30 recommends. My questions is, can I give myself 3 days of eating normal Whole30 and then start testing my grains, wine, etc... or do I need to restart my whole30? Thank you so much in ad
  7. Thank you for your response! For breakfast, I typically do ~3 eggs with a pepper and half an onion, lunch is a a bowl with salad, and then dinner is about 8 chicken wings or 2 chicken thighs plus the rest of a large dinner plate filled with sweet potato / brussels sprouts. Are those portions too small? I typically drink at least two liters of water a day in addition to what I listed above
  8. Hi all! I completed my first whole30, took a day off, then started my second one shortly after. I got a really bad migraine about 10 days into which has gotten better but has not gone away. In terms of symptoms, I have head pain and slight sensitivity to light and sound. In terms of what I've been eating, I'm the type of person that is happy eating the same thing day after day. My breakfasts usually are a frittata (egg, ground beef, spinach, onion, red pepper) or scrambled eggs with a kiwi, apple, or avocado. Lunch is a salad with white wine vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, romain lettuc
