    Thanks, Hutlifr. I have been to that link, but it still doesn't explain the reasoning behind introducing three things (from one food group) in one day. I am curious as to why this is suggested. Thus far, I've only reintroduced dairy 1/day on a few separate days. I would like to better understand the science. I am certain eating dairy three times in a day would not be good for me, but the occasional dairy seems okay.

    Hello, I am a bit confused on re-introduction. The link to the schedule above says to start with legumes. In ISWF, it says to start with dairy. Which should I do or does it matter?
    I am also curious about introducing three servings as suggested. I didn't eat dairy three times/day before, why would I do that now? I think after not eating dairy for a month and then have it three times in a day will definitely overload my system. I'm looking forward to plain Greek yogurt, but if I add cheese and ice cream, how will I know if just the yogurt is okay?
    I guess I'm not understanding the process.
    Thanks!

    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.

    FWIW, this is similar to the reintroduction protocol my registered dietitian used when I did an elimination diet through my doctor's office back in 2006 after food allergy testing. As I recall, the rationale for having the food in question at all three meals was to be sure you ingested enough of the food group to conduct a sufficient test for sensitivity.  If you feel crummy after 1 serving, that might be enough to stop. If you feel fine after one serving or you're not sure, it's another good reason to have the item in question at all three meals (or, if you have unclear results after 1 day, add another day of testing said food group).
     
    EDIT: the order in which you reintroduce food groups doesn't matter. The Whole30 reintroduction schedule is a sample of one possible order.

    I com if with mindy5... Dairy for each meal? Never do that. I know I had problem with milk and flip item before whole30. So can I just reintroduce cheese and yoghurt?

    Never mind found the answer...
    "Reminder: If you don’t miss a particular food or drink that you know makes you less healthy, don’t bother to reintroduce it. Not missing tofu, black beans, cottage cheese, or brown rice? With evidence pointing towards these foods making you less healthy, there’s no reason whatsoever to add them back into your diet. Only reintroduce those foods that you suspect you’ll really want to include back into your diet once in a while, and leave the rest happily behind. - See more at: http://whole30.com/step-two-finished/#sthash.niD63BhC.dpuf"
