    tummy troubles

    ok thanks
  2. Hi, I am just finishing up my first whole 30 and have been thinking as I go through it, would this be possible to do with my kids? I think it would be good for them just like it has for me, but the thought is really stressful and overwhelming. They have been eating some of the things I have been eating but they are not quick to try new foods. They are ages 2 and 4. The 2 year old only has 1 or 2 fruit and veggies he likes. The 4 year old is used to eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. What kind of encouragement can you give me? Should I try it cold turkey, or take a slower approach and gradually transition to more of these foods. Some issues I want to address are sleep problems, behavior, muscle pains, ear infections, runny noses...

    Thanks you for the chocolate info. I have some chocolate that is 80% dark. ingredients are: chocolate liquor, raw cane sugar, cocoa butter, ground vanilla beans. I haven't tried it yet because I'm wondering if I need to separate it out with the two day wait if I do it during the reintroduction time like it's own item or not.

    Thank you so much for encouraging me to stop snacking on the dried fruit and nuts, and I cut out some other FOODMAPS. It was hard giving up snacking, but I added more at meals and was fine. Within days my stomach was better. And without the snacking I finally experienced Tiger Blood! Now I'm on day 31 and am trying some hummus. I will go by the schedule that is outlined. But where would 80% dark chocolate come in? That's one of the few things I miss.

    Thank you so much. I will try cutting out dried fruit/nuts and going without snacking.

    Thank you. I will say that I usually eat fruit and dried nuts in the afternoon, maybe eating too much. I still get hungry in between meals. Recently started drinking sparkling water too in the past week. So that may be the case. Here is the past two days. But for the past week my stomach has not been happy. Yesterday: Breakfast was boiled egg, butternut squash soup and fruit, coffee Lunch: green salad with protein and raw veggies like carrots, celery, peppers, fresh fruit and nuts Snack: dried fruit and nuts, celery with nut butter and raisins, sparkling water Dinner: sweet potato shepherds pie herbal tea Today: eggs with veggies (beets, mushrooms recently started eating, green peppers, carrots, etc.) fruit, coffee Snack: carrots and snow peas and guac, plus more coffee (probably not a good idea for my stomach) lunch: leftover sweet potato shepherds pie snack: boiled egg, cashews, dried date, sparkling water dinner: salmon, sweet potato, kale herbal tea

    Hi, I'm on day 22 and for the past few days having gassiness, bloating, stomach pains. I didn't have this at all at the beginning, weird that it would start now. Any suggestions?
