    Physibeth reacted to ShannonM816 in Whole30 Sample Reintroduction Schedule   
    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.

    We as moderators see a lot of confusion around here on what constitutes a serving of eggs when eggs are your primary protein source. We tell you as many as you can hold in your hand without dropping but I still don't think people actually try this. So I thought I'd post a visual for you folks. It would be fun if other people added their own pictures too. Try the experiment.

    Effective Thursday, August 27, 2015, members can no longer edit their own posts indefinitely.  Unfortunately the constant editing in the threads was causing issues within the forum, necessitating the change.  
    Members will now be allowed to edit their own post for 15 minutes after publishing (for fixing typos or adding a quick afterthought).  Beyond that initial 15 minutes, the post will be considered closed and can only be edited by an administrator or moderator.
    Thank you very much for your understanding and for helping the forum to run as smoothly as possible.

    Physibeth reacted to mfustos in Noticing More Acne   
    I am not a nutritionist nor a doctor, so I am just throwing this out there. I am wondering if since our hormones are affected by the food we eat and hormones can influence acne breakouts, that if your hormones are still in flux and settling, if that is causing some of the breakouts. I am on day 8 and have been noticing a bit more of a breakout for the last couple days as well. I have decreased my nut consumption since starting W30 and don't eat dried fruit at all. I have added some coconut milk to my food, but hardly any in the grand scheme of things. Mine could also be due to the fact that my period is scheduled to show up in less than a week... but it seems a bit different this time. Like I said, not a doctor or nutritionist, just throwing a hypothesis out there based on my own experiences with dairy (which caused HORRID acne for me) and what I have been reading in ISWF.
     
    Stay positive - I am with you on the acne sucks train. Keep me posted on if you figure anything out.

    Well you are allowed to have 2 servings of protein if you need it. This would be a question for the top dogs in all seriousness. I'd be scared I'd drop one of my very expensive pastured eggs trying to build a pyramid. And my floors are not really clean right now...and I would scoop it up and eat it anyway.

    Yes that is correct. Just to further clarify on day 4 legumes is the only non-Whole30 item you have. On day 7 alcohol is the only non-Whole30 item you have. In other words you don't have dairy (or legumes or alcohol) again (even if you are fine with it) until all your reintroductions are complete.

    While this doesn't violate any of the rules it isn't your best choice for breakfast. We recommend that all of your meals fit the food template to get the best results from your experience. This means 1-2 palms of protein, 1-3 cups of veggies, and 1-2 servings of added fat. Also make sure that your almond milk doesn't contain carrageenan either. I've personally never found an almond milk in the store that didn't have this additive and usually just make my own when I want it.

    Physibeth reacted to Tom Denham in Confused about date syrup?   
    Let me elaborate.. a syrup made from dates is not acceptable during a Whole30 and a crappy idea at any time because sweetening your food with such a product erodes health. It does not make anything better. Making a puree with dates in order to sweeten your food is maybe 10 percent more acceptable than using a date syrup. You know where 10 percent better leaves you? Ninety percent away from where you belong if you want to be healthy.
     
    The person behind the dessert recipes thinks eating a frozen date helped her during her Whole30. This is not true. Feeding a sugar craving keeps the craving healthy and strong. The Whole30 approach to sugar cravings is to starve them unmercifully until they die. There is no room to negotiate with a sugar craving. They are cunning and powerful. Trying to placate a craving with just a little something has ended many Whole30s prematurely. Don't listen to the soft crowd. Listen to the old timers. Go cold turkey regarding sweetness. 
     
    Let me explain where it really is okay to use something to sweeten your food... when you are making pickles. Here is a good recipe for making quick, refrigerator pickles... Submerge your sliced cucumbers in a mixture of half apple cider vinegar and half apple juice plus spices like salt, garlic, peppercorns, etc and let soak for 12-24 hours. Making pickles is an acceptable time to use a sweetener during a Whole30. Seriously.

    Today was my day 30. I plan to continue. I don't really feel any need to reintroduce anything rght now, EXCEPT we are going to Europe for 3 weeks in July. My thought right now is to do the reintroduction process, take note of any good or bad reactions, then continue with Whole30. My reasoning is that I will know ahead of time what will cause me problems in Europe. I don't plan to follow Whole30 while on vacation, but I also don't plan to go hog-wild. I also don't want to take a chance of eating something that will make me uncomfortable while travelling.

    Hi Caitlin, you are free to reintro in the schedule that you note.  Your reintro process would certainly take longer but if you're fine with that and have the time, go for it!  
     
    The sugar in ice cream thing is a tough one because the ice cream could also have carrageenan in it so you wouldn't know if it was sugar, dairy or an additive that bothered you.  Each thing should be reintro'd completely alone.  We also find some people reintroing soy separate from other legumes because soy is such an issue.  Different types of dairy (whey vs casein) could also be reintro'd separately depending on what your goals at the end are.
     
    It's really up to you how specific and how long you make it.

    My opinion: For legumes.  I would not include soy.  Soy on it's own is an allergen for many people (and they may not know it) where as legumes in general are not.  Seems logical to me that you would want to introduce them separately.  (I have mild allergies to wheat, soy, dairy and corn. I've been tested.)

    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.

    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.
