Wow... I just read thru this whole forum topic looking to see if anyone else had this exact issue!
Yesterday was my legume reintro. I did peanut butter with breakfast, soy sauce & Edamame with lunch, and black beans with dinner. Today I am experiencing some GI issues (bloat, some gas and slight diarrhea- sorry if TMI). I think it is great that I can pinpoint these issues... But have no clue if they are from "legumes" or one of the specific kinds that I ate???
I am not particularly interested in the impact of peanut butter... I actually found (thru reintroduction) that I prefer almond butter. Cool, huh?
I was thinking about adding some reintro days at the end of my 10 day reintro to specifically call out soy vs. beans. I did some research on FODMAPS and think there may be something there.
So, if after testing the other groups (non gluten, dairy, gluten and alcohol) would adding a soy reintro day and a bean reintro day (with the two W30 days in between) be an acceptable way forward? And keeping on with this pattern for any other questionable subsets (cow's milk vs goat's milk, etc)?

Those are just suggestions. The best thing to do is introduce something you might actually want to eat again though be careful that there are no cross contaminating ingredients. I did sourdough bread for mine because that was what I was interested in.

Before you weigh -- or if you don't see this until after, then do this asap -- go to this page https://whole30.com/pdf-downloads/ and get the NSV Checklist, sit down with it, and check off every one that applies to you, and definitely list any that you don't see mentioned. Remember these non-scale victories regardless 9f what happens with the scale.
Whole30 is not a weight loss diet. Some people lose, some don't. But that'll not what we want you to focus on. We are told by society that if we lose weight, that makes us healthier. Whole30 wants you to look at it the other way -- if you get healthy, your weight will get to where it needs to be. If you are feeling better -- sleeping better, have more energy, have more even moods, etc. -- that is evidence that you are doing something right. If you keep focusing on feeling good and doing the things that keep you active and healthy, your weight will take care of itself.
