    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.
  4. Hi Tracy! There's a chance you're under-eating and, in combination with the sugar withdrawals, that's not helping things. Do the very best you can to get in meal 2 every day. Add some starchy veggies in one of your first 2 meals and see if that helps, as well.

    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.

    Loss of appetite on second Whole30?

    That's not super common, but it does happen. And it does pass. Eat a small meal at your regular meal times - just something simple - to remind your body that it will continue to get food. This should right itself in a day or two.

    coconut water?

    SoFlaYogi - Coconut water, even sweetened with fruit juice, should be fine if you are spending a significant amount of time doing hot yoga. For a class a day, water should be sufficient to rehydrate. You may also want to look into a specifically formulated electrolyte replacement. Coconut water is higher in some minerals and lower in others, and isn't the most efficient blend for our bodies. Here's the product we recommend:

    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.
