    I 100% get the reintroduction. I cut out nitrates years ago and get a raging headache if I eat something now that contains nitrates. I get it all I bought the book and reading it for the second time. I'm doing the whole 30 because I'm so addicted to sugar & grains....milk not so much. For people wanting to see how they react to food yes the whole 30 for 30 days then reintroduce. I am desperate to stop my cravings and I was starting this way for ME!!! I posted on the forum because I didn't know if anyone else has taken a similar approach I understand what the moderators are for but you guys are like the whole 30 police, you all are ridiculous get a life.   ​ ​

    I guess I'm coming from a different place. I don't want to do the whole 30 I want to do the whole forever. So I don't plan on eating like this for 30 days then reintroducing food that has made me sick for years. I have never in my life been able to stick to a diet longer then a week. Infact I did the  whole 30 before and only lasted about 7 dats then I went on a 3 month binge. It's not like I'm eating sugar and I'm well aware of the opiate effect cheese/dairy has on our brain. I am a food addict. I sit in front of pizza and feel like I can't live without it. I wasn't trying to confuse any whole 30'rs. This has been very effective for me, to do the whole 30 to the T.....except a little cheese works better for me. And maybe it would help others that have the same issue I do.  I would appreciate if you moved my post back to were it was. Isn't this forum designed to help each other?

    Hi Gem,
    This has been discussed at length on the forum. In the interest of avoiding duplication, I have merged your question with an existing PCOS thread. You are also welcome to google "Whole30 PCOS" for other threads and discussions.

    I was diagnosed with PCOS a while back.  My doctor put my on metformin, then I got pregnant and stopped.  I have been un-medicated since then.  I am post Whole 30, but due to my success in that 30 days, I'm continuing to follow it (more or less).  I'm definitely staying off wheat (check out the book Wheat Belly).  Anyway, I lost 15 lbs in that month.  I take yoga once a week and occasionally walk.  Nothing major.  Post Whole 30, my weight continues to go down, but it's not melting off like it did at first.  I highly recommend it.  The only change I made was eating goat cheese.  Man, if I'm going to eat a salad every day, it's going to have goat cheese in it.

    I'm starting today -- a day behind you two. I'm worried about the cravings.... Just thinking about thw 30 days last night, I ate some farewell chocolate and drank some milk. I'm pre diabetic and have only one adrenal gland. So sugar is a big no-no. But I like it so. I like to walk and ride my bike for exercise, but the family hustle gets in the way of taking care of me. Can you relate?
