  1. Just started my FastTrack reintroduction yesterday with non-gluten grains (decided to start with those, since I've had issues with dairy and soy in the past). So after trying them out for a day and not noticing any reaction, after I take my two day break, do I need to stay away from them for the rest of the reintroduction phase? Also, when can I start introducing meats with small amounts of added sugar? What about my favorite stevia/erythritol blend? Do I bring those back in after reintroduction? I am actually leaving on a 2 week trip to see my family (18 hour drive) on day 16 of "reintroduction" so I'm hoping to not have to be too picky when we're traveling. We went camping on Days 22-25 of my Whole30 and it was rather stressful prepping 4 days worth of food for the coolers. ;P
  2. So today is day 31st so I am reintroducing this week my food groups. On Saturday, I am planning on reintroducing non-gluten grains. My question is: Do corn nuts snacks fall into the category of non-gluten grains for reintroduction because it's corn??
  3. So I'm a few days into my reintroduction and I'm thinking how successful my Whole 30 was, 4 lbs, 1 inch off my waist and an overall happy gut! I'm really only reintroducing a few things like oatmeal, sweetened creamer in my coffee and the occasional sweet treat (macaroons, yum!) so I'm wondering if by bringing these things back, am I making my body stop using its fat as fuel? Will it burn those cards instead thereby reducing my weight loss? I read that is what happens on Whole30, your body changes how it runs, so I'm worried that by reintroducing certain foods, it will stop burning fat in that way. Does anyone know the science around this? Is there a certain sugar/carb ratio to stay under to keep your body burning its fat for fuel?
  4. So day 28 is finishing up for me which means I have two days left. At the beginning of this whole30 (my first time), I did feel little stomach aches now and again... nothing that seemed too concerning. I figured it was all the vegetables I was now eating. (I was trying a lot of new ones too! -or at least ones I hardly ate before: cabbage, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, beets, kale, swiss chard, etc.. At the beginning of today, I started to feel my throat sore. I cheated and had one honey-lemon drop (didn't help much so I didn't have anymore). Feeling a little feverish, I took some medicine, slept, and pretty much feel the same (but with no fever). I feel terrible/sick! About once a year, I tend to get "sick symptoms" but never actually get sick (I really rarely NEVER get sick). -Usually this happens because I get stressed and my immune system weakens just a tiny bit. 95% of what I've been drinking has been water (a gulp of pineapple or apple juice if a recipe calls for it). My meals are usually some kind of meat/protein with vegetable (cooked in fat: oil or clarified butter). I think during week two, I skipped a few meals because I was just so full! For snacks, I have apples, oranges, or approved larabars. I'm quite concerned about this because my day 30 is so close! I'm determined to go to the end... but I wonder... what about my re-introduction phase? I can't really re-introduce things if I feel sick? I might confuse symptoms! (was it because I am sick, or because I ate the bread?) I almost feel like I spent a month for nothing! D: (I really wanted to do this 98% correct and told myself if I decide to do it next time, that I'll know what other food groups upsets me and take it a little easier for myself) Also, I know it's not day 30 but I weighed/measured myself. I haven't lost weight (or gained) any, but I did loose an inch around my stomach! yay! I'm quite happy about that! I'm honestly not concerned with weight numbers but am very happy about the measurement on my stomach. ^^ Another thing: pretty sure I didn't catch this from anyone as no one around me (that I know of) is sick... and I'm on my 4th day of vacation, so I've been kinda isolated... Sorry for the long post/Thank you for those who read the whole thing!
  5. So I looked around on the forum and couldn't find anything like this (maybe I just didn't know what to search for, specifically) So I'm going to post my plan. I hope this helps someone else who's in the same position as me. I finished my very first Whole30 YESTERDAY! I had an amazing time with this. It wasn't too difficult and I really got a lot out of it. I'm sleeping more soundly, falling asleep faster, and waking up easier (often before my alarm even goes off). My skin has really cleared up. The migraines that I had prescription medication for have completely disappeared. My energy is pretty high despite the fact that I've completely cut out caffeine (Coca Cola was my caffeine of choice, but i would also drink tea and coffee). I don't know about my athletic performance because I gave my body a break from intense activity while I was adjusting to the new lifestyle. When it comes to physical changes, though I know that's not the goal; I did experience some. I lost 4.2 lbs, 1.4% body fat, and a total of 6 inches around my body. Overall this has been a wonderful experience and I'm totally going to keep this a part of my life and maybe even get my husband to try it out! So I'm finally at the reintroduction stage and I'm trying to get as much out of it as possible. I'm super interested in what specific foods could give me problems, rather than just the food groups. Therefore, I've made a SUPER SLOW ROLL SCHEDULE that I'm going to follow. If I follow this, it will take me another 81 days (minimum: assuming no category REALLY messes me up for more than 2 days) to finish my reintroduction. During this time I will pick a new food (that I previously ate/wouldn't mind eating again if possible) every third day to try. I will eat that food in a lot of different forms and styles throughout the day (unless the morning reintroduction immediately ruins me), while eating everything else Whole30 compliant. Then I'll go back to Whole30 for the next two days/however long it takes for negative symptoms to clear up. I followed the basic template of: 1. Legumes, 2. Gluten-free grains, 3. Dairy (split into lactose free and normal), 4. Gluten-containing grains, 5. Alcohol SUPER SLOW ROLL SCHEDULE 1. Black Beans 2. Peanut Butter 3. Soy: Edamame, Miso Soup, Soy Milk 4. Chickpeas 5. Lima Beans 6. Green Peas 7. Corn: Corn Kernels, corn tortilla chips, popcorn, Creamed Corn 8. White Rice 9. Brown Rice 10. Grits 11. Gluten-free Oats 12. Lactaid Milk 13. Skim Milk 14. Halo Top Ice Cream 15. Normal Ice Cream 16. Hard Cheese: Cheddar, Swiss, Parmesan 17. Soft Cheese 18. Greek Yogurt 19. Whipping Cream 20. Whole Wheat Bread in various forms 21. Whole Wheat Pasta 22. Biscuits 23. Vodka 24. Whiskey 25. Rum 26. Ciders 27. Wine Before I did the Whole30, I had already cut out almost all dairy (except in baking/ The Cheesecake Factory Strawberry Shortcake- OMGEEE). I drank MAYBE once every couple of months, and then it would be just one drink. And I wasn't a huge grain person except for Grits and breakfast breads. I'm aware that none of the things in my reintroduction list are things that I HAVE to have again. But they are foods that I think could come up naturally in my life, and I want to be able to make the most educated decision possible about if that food will actually be worth it. Therefore, I will introduce them all. Knowledge is power, after all. I may also extend a bit longer and try out different combinations of these foods to see if that affects me more than just the individual food. For example- what would a bowl of cereal with gluten and dairy, do to me? Does that still happen if I use almond milk, or Lactaid Milk? And then maybe try out different desserts that have a few of the inflammatory ingredients in them. I know this may seem excessive or too intense. But this would really satisfy the math/science minded + organizational part of my brain. I have no doubt that I'll do another Whole30 again one day. I actually really look forward to it. I'm welcome to any suggestions/comments. But please keep them constructive- and don't try to talk me out of doing it this way. I'm already going to do it. But if you can think of a way to make it better organized, or if you have done something similar to what I'm about to try to do- I'd love to hear about your experience!
  6. So on day 31 there is a restaurant I'm going to that serves homemade fries. They are made in soybean oil and their chicken is cooked in a combination of oils including corn oil. I was wondering what kind of food group am I reintroducing here? Is it legumes? If I'm eating fries, does that mean I can eat any kind of fries? (say if I had hash browns or heated up some frozen fries for lunch or fast food fries, etc..)

    Reintroducing Legumes

    I began whole 30, not for weight loss, but rather because of stomach pain... Before whole 30, I would eat a homemade Ham & Bean soup with no pain... Yesterday, I started reintroducing legumes and had some of said soup... However, by the end of the evening, I wound up with such pain in my stomach and I felt so sick! The only difference to the recipe -- I used dried beans instead of canned. Even though the beans were soaked overnight, and were cooking for hours and hours, the beans never really softened. Could this be the reason I had the stomach pain? Perhaps my stomach couldn't digest the beans because they were not soft enough??? Any thoughts? Thanks in advance! ~ Sheri
  8. Hi everyone, It looks like my reintroduction is going to coincide with my period, or at least with pms... Yikes. Would you advice against doing the reintroduction during my period? If I feel terrible, I may not be able to tell whether it's from pms or from the reintroduced food. Then again, I'm not sure I can keep going with W30 for much longer than 30 days, either, as it isn't really making me feel great.
  9. Hi Whole30 friends! I took 9 total days to reintroduce several different legumes (peanuts, soy, black beans) and had NO problems. I have now started reintroducing non-gluten grains. I ate white rice yesterday. So today is a clean eating day and there is a soup in the cafe I want to try...lemon ginger split-pea soup. All the ingredients are compliant, obviously the split peas are a legume. So my question is two fold - first, if I had no trouble with the three legumes I already reintroduced, do I really need a separate day for split peas or is it fair to assume all legumes are fine? and second...how important is it to eat 100% whole30 clean between reintroduction days? Is it okay to eat whole30 clean plus foods that you have found to be not a problem for you?
  10. Hey there, I tried to find an answer on the forum but couldn’t find any. This is my first whole30!!! I reintroduced NG grains yesterday, some GF oatmeal for breakfast, sushi at lunch (no soy, just some rice and sashimi), popcorn, and salad for dinner. Everything was OK. today I had apple cinnamon paleo breakfast bowl, and for lunch egg omelette with bell peppers, and after that I’ve been feeling very bloated and gassy :/ could it be the bell peppers? (I had 2) and the symptoms were almost immediate. My stomach keeps growing. Is it the NG grains or the bell pepper? I did have a bigger portion of peppers than normal. thanks!

    Intolerance or Shock?

    Hey there, I am wondering how much of the reintro is just your body in shock of a food group it hasn't had in a while? For example, I had minor reactions to soy/legumes and non-gluten grains, but had pretty severe diarrhea and intestinal cramping from dairy and gluten. I tried gluten again the following days after day 10 of reintro and didn't have a reaction to whole grain bread or a mini muffin. To my understanding, this is also a lot of spectators' objection to this program. So how do I know if this is shock or if I really should never eat dairy again (my worst reaction)?
  12. I finished Whole30 a week ago, and I went for a week vacation on Saturday, and though on relax a little bit with my eating habits, so I drank beer, and ate some cheese and a few hours later, a rash appeared on the inside of my forearms, on my belly, on the outside of my leg, and I can't think of anything else but this things I ate/drank after a whole month of clean eating. Is it possible?? Did this happen to anyone out there?? i'll get back to Whole30 on Thursday, but this left me thinking if now I'm allergic to somethings that I wasn't befor and if there will be a "cure" for that thank you
  13. Today is day one of my reintroduction and I am SO excited! However this morning I was hit with a question... I am unsure how to reintroduce my protein powders. Before my Whole30 I used to drink 1-2 servings every day. (only as a meal replacement or immediate post-workout) I have two different protein powders (both whey protein), one is Isagenix brand strawberry cream, and the other is Muscle Sport brand lean whey revolution chocolate flavor- my favorite (also has added fat burner). Here are the fist few ingredients of each protein powder even though the list is way longer... Isagenix strawberry cream: whey protein concentrate (undenatured), milk protein concentrate (undenatured), low heat nonfat dry milk, isomaltooligosaccharide powder, fructose, sunflower oil powder, olive oil powder, tapioca maltodextrin, flax seed powder, xanthan gum, triglyceride oil powder Muscle Sport lean whey revolution chocolate: fibersol 2, maltodextrin, tauric acid, glycocarn, l-carnatine tartrate, lecithin, whey protein isolate, hydrolyzed whey protein peptides, cocoa, cellulose gum, xanthan gum, carrageenan gum, lactase, bromelein, sucralose I was wondering your thoughts on these (are they "healthy" or are there harmful chemicals in them compared to other protein powders? etc.) How and when would you recommend re-introducing them? (In their own re-intro category, in the dairy re-intro category, etc.) Thank you!
  14. I know, I know... The official ISWF position seems to be "Don't" but for those of us that still want to occasionally imbibe, the book is sorely lacking on how and when to reintroduce alcohol. Day 1 is dairy. Day 4 is gluten grains. Day 7 is non-gluten grains. Day 10 is legumes. Should I sprinkle alcohol in there somewhere? Wait until the end, do it first, or what? Right now, I'm thinking I might reintroduce alcohol first so I can understand the effects of that before reintroducing anything else. Thoughts on this?
