  1. I'm on day 7 of my reintroduction. I've been following the regular protocol. But I can't really tell whether I have symptoms or not. - I'm tired all the time: No wonder, because I have a 14-month-old who is sleep regressing, so I'm not interpreting that as a consequence of what I'm eating. I actually making it through the days pretty well without a strong need for a nap, so perhaps the Whole 30 has actually been helping. - allergies: days 1, 2, 3 I suffered from nasty allergies in the morning. BUT, they started before I had even introduced the first food at breakfast, so I'm guessing this isn't food-related. (My only thought is that I go to the bottom of a jar of homemade ghee on day 30, and I wonder if there were any milk solids left in there.) - slight digestive upset: day 6. Could be from the corn taco I had the night before (yes, I know, day 5 was supposed to be a W30 day, no grains) - or maybe not. The only thing I noticed was increased cravings in the past few days, which may be from the grains (quinoa, white rice) I introduced. I was hoping to gain some insights, but so far, there's very little to be gleaned. I'm a bit frustrated. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Non-compliant prenatal

    Thank you, Shannon. I'll give my doctor a call. And yes, I need to eat a lot. I'm so very, very hungry! Unlike yesterday, I'm writing down what I eat now to make sure I'm actually including everything as needed.
  5. I started my W30 yesterday. I'm nursing a 13-mo 4-5 times/day, so I take a prenatal supplement. I realized today that my daily prenatal is non-compliant. It's the Garden of Life brand and contains things like sprouted legumes. I only take 1/3 of the recommended dose (1 instead of 3 capsules) per day anyway, so I'm wondering whether I should just drop it for the length of the Whole 30. I imagine I'll be getting plenty of nutrition from the extra vegetables I'll be consuming. I know the decision is ultimately up to me, possibly with input from my doctor. But I'm curious how much of an impact such small doses of non-compliant ingredients may or may not have. Weighing the pros and cons here. I want to jeopardize neither the benefits of the Whole 30 nor my health (by not taking the prenatal for a month or longer).
  6. I googled this earlier and found this thread:

    August 13 - Let's do this!

    Just started yesterday. Good luck to everyone! This is my 3rd Whole 30 (the first was in 2012), but things didn't stick when I had two kids in the interim. I've decided that's no excuse, though...

    Starting on August 15!

    Just started yesterday, so we're just about on the same schedule. Good luck with Day 1!
