    Lack of carbs can cause blood sugar drop which can cause headaches (especially when working towards fat adaptation). For best results we really recommend eating within an hour of waking and the fact that you are physically averse to this is a sign that you have a hormonal imbalance. If you wish to correct this, the best way forward is to start with a template meal (1-2 palms animal protein, not nuts, 3+ cups veggies and 1-2 servings of fat) and eat as much as you can from around the plate. Then pack it up and take it with you and eat from it again as soon as you feel able. We recommend starting with at least a fist sized serving of starchy veggie each day (potato, sweet potato, winter squash, carrot, turnip etc) and go from there.

    Morning Hunger

    Hi Emily, are you still breastfeeding? If so you probably need to eat another meal during the day to accommodate that extra energy output.

    Medical Procedure Prep

    The bloating can also be caused by the air that they pump into your gut. It can take a few days for that to normalize while your system absorbs and expels the excess gas.

    Black beans bad fad?

    Soy can be problematic for many folks and individually we do recommend that people give it a separate day. The books are written to be approachable across the board but giving soy (and peanut butter) separate days is just a more thorough way of doing reintroduction. For folks w dairy issues we also recommend that they separate out the types of dairy (ie, lactose, whey, casein) to determine specific reactions. This can make the reintroduction much longer and more complex but it really depends on how specific people want to get. Legumes are still out on Whole30 across the board for the 30 days but they are admittedly less disruptive than something like gluten. If black beans are a part of your food freedom, that's great, they are delicious!

    Poo Questions

    Is the "seed/nut" looking poo stuff dark like coffee grinds? Or light colored? I would probably say if your poos are pleasant and odorless and you aren't experiencing bloating or pain or discomfort, you're probably just adjusting to a revision in your diet. if you are concerned it's always best to seek out a medical professional though. (<-- legal disclaimer)
  7. As per Melissa, yeast extract is fine if it cannot be avoided but we would encourage people to try and use/find products that do not contain this. It is not cause for restart.

    Corrections to the Whole30 Fast & Easy cookbook?

    I'll let headquarters know - thanks!
  9. Maybe try limiting your cruciferous veggies (broc, cauli, brussel sprouts) and see if that helps. It may be a limitation issue on brassica.
  10. No, unfortunately because it's still made with grain.

    AIP and Whole 30 recipes?

    We're not much of a recipe sharing site here but if you do a quick google search for AIP recipes you should get a wealth of results. Here are a couple to get you started. You'll still have to review them for Whole30 compliance and then for your own personal issue with coconut milk but it should get you started:

    How do I make this whole30 compliant?

    No sweeteners of any kind and no wine, sorry. Maybe pick a different recipe so that you don't have to make modifications? This one shared on our feed this week looks SO good:

    Day 5 and a surprising find

    Sorry your stomach is wonky! I would say perhaps that it is a limitation issue on the cauliflower/brocolini - cruciferous veggies are known to cause cramps and bloating, especially if you've eaten a lot of them in a shorter period of time. try eliminating the cruciferous veggies and see how that goes.
