    Whole30 Sample Reintroduction Schedule

    Kirkor- Correct, the new reintroduction schedule is phrased in terms of least to most likely to cause issues. BUT, order can change based on personal context and preferences. If you have a preferred order, or want to skip foods on our list, please feel free. Our schedule is our best recommendation, but variation is not a deal breaker.

    Day 20 and still bloated!!

    I think starting with eggs and cashews would be a good jumping off point. Give yourself 3 full days off of them before you evaluate. Then, if that doesn't solve the problem, move on from there

    There may be residual amounts, yes. But we've decided that's okay based on the benefits.

    The Official "Can I Have..." Guide to the Whole30

    Thanks Chris! All - I'm going to close comments on this post, as we have the whole of the Can I Have section to ask new questions

    Don't over think this.

    This is one of those cases where you can't believe everything you read on the interwebs. Chemistry is complicated and while some manufactured foods and natural foods share similar chemical compounds, they don't all interact with our bodies in the same way. For the purposes of Whole30, simply avoid "MSG" - no outside reading material necessary

    ARamstead- I can see what you're saying, and understand your point. With all of these rules, there's an extensive thought process behind what is and isn't allowed. In the case of kombucha, with some brands and home brews there is a *chance* of alcohol, not a guarantee. We aren't ruling it out on a chance, especially when there is such benefit to be had. But, with alcohol products, you are guaranteed alcohol at the start and the hope is that there is minimal alcohol left. In my mind, that's a big difference.

    As longs as you check the ingredients on their meats and dressings, a salad bar should be okay. If there's anything there that sees to be canned, ask for ingredients for that as well.

    cortner1195 - If you've already eaten it, don't stress. Just avoid it in the future

    Turned off from food

    Sahm - While it's not super common, some people do experience this. They find it goes away after a few days of regular (if small) meals. When I get this way, I choose foods that are cold and easy to eat like cold chicken or steak, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, etc. A few meals of these foods and my appetite generally returns. Also, if you are not very active, try consciously increasing your activity levels for a few days and see if that brings your appetite back.

    Hi deedie! Kombucha's mentioned in the post above We don't recommend any specific brands - just look for one with no added sugar (or really any other ingredients) and buy the smallest amount you can.
  12. Hi all! Before you create a new can I have, take a peek at this list we've compiled of the most common "Can I Have" questions!

    Help! Digestion problems...

    I honestly don't know the answer to that, but my guess is that it's different for different people. I would experiment a but with it and see how you feel.

    Can't sleep & getting up to pee

    Don't forget - you're also eating plenty of water-rich foods on TOP of your daily drink intake. It will take a little while for your body to adjust, but you'll get there
