    Binge-y on reintro foods

    The Whole30 at home has been my third Whole30 and probably my favorite one I’ve done yet. Usually I use the slow roll reintroduction and it’s worked well for me in the past, but I decided to fast track it this time and have really struggled with feeling binge-y on reintro days. My thoughts are like “I can’t have this again for a while so I should just finish it now” which I know isn’t healthy for me. I really wanted to do this reintro the “right way” and am a little bummed this has been such a struggle. Is it ok if I switch to more of a slow roll style reintro or should I try and stick with the fast track and give myself more structure to my reintro? Has anyone else experienced this?
  2. I'm wrapping up my first Whole 30 and starting to plan a Fast Track reintroduction. I'm that during a reintroduction day regardless of how a non-whole 30 food group feels I should still eliminate it while reintroducing another non- whole 30 food group (ex: Don't eat gluten free grain on a dairy reintro day). Looking at the Reintro guidelines I noticed alcohol and sugar are an optional reintroduction group. A few questions regarding this: 1. Once introducing sugar, is it ok to keep a little bit of added sugar in your reintro period? Even on the 2-day whole 30 reset days? (I really hate unsweetened coffee, and mostly use a splash of dairy free sweet cream or honey in my coffee) 2. Is it ok to have an alcoholic beverage with sugar in it? ie glass of red wine or a white claw AND is it ok to have an alcoholic beverage every now and then during the remainder of the reintroduction period including the 2 day whole 30 reset days? 3. Due to alignment of the weekend, I'd like to reintroduce alcohol before sugar- I don't really like pure alcohol and would like to have some White claws which are gluten free, but not sugar free so I would technically be reintroducing sugar and alcohol at the same time. Thank you for your help!
  3. I am sorry I am still not understanding reintroduction. I have read and re-read so many things. 1) For example, on day 31 I would add (legumes) back into my diet. 2) Does that mean legumes for breakfast, lunch and dinner? OR Just one type of legume for one meal? 3) Then on day 32, I would go back to eating only Whole30 compliant? or I would be eating Whole30 compliant- plus also eating the legumes? I am not understanding when I am adding the foods back in (and maybe out?) and when I am continuing with that same food. Thank you so much for any clarification.

    Reintroduction, Covid & Anxiety

    Hi everyone, I was doing a whole30 when the corona virus hit the West really hard. I live in the UK and have just finished our 2nd week of lock down. I am in the reintroduction phase at the moment, however when I get really anxious my stomach seizes up and usually my lower back will go back too. I've been trying to reintroduce foods however I can't tell if what I am eating is causing discomfort or the anxiety. Is it allowed in reintroduction to try say gluten free grains 3 times, with 2 days rest or however long needed in between? This is my first "correct" reintroduction and id really like to do it right to begin my FFF journey. Would you advise sticking to simple things. I had Gf pasta that contained rice, corn and quinoa and I thought maybe I should just try one of those at a time because it'd be better to simplify to spot issues with certain foods from each group? Also I had quinoa porridge, is that too much for a reintroduction meal, I read last night it should be a side so should I avoid doing that again? Apologies for the essay, I just really want to do the reintroduction correctly. Cat

    Reintroduction

    I have started reintroduction and I am not reacting well to any of it so far, legumes and non gluten grains. Should I stop and continue with the Whole30 for another few weeks before trying dairy and gluten?
  6. I have finished my first Whole30. Decided what I was missing most was dairy and had cream in my coffee this morning and another cup late afternoon. Planning to have some yoga with dinner. Noticing no response so far from the dairy. And my questions, for the 2 in-between days do I continue to have dairy or wait until day 3 when it is time to introduce a new food. As I write that, going back to no dairy does not seem to make sense because if I only had it one day and then add it in again with another food, if there is a reaction.... which food? Please advise. Tomorrow is tomorrow! Thanks.

    Legumes Making Me Congested

    Hey everyone!! I finished my Whole30 on January 26th. For the reintroduction of legumes I made a chili with beans. What I noticed is that shortly after eating, I felt like I got pretty congested for about 45 minutes to an hour. Is this something anyone else has experienced? I know that inflammation can cause that congested feeling, it's just not one I was expecting. Thanks!!
  8. I'll be finishing up my first Whole30 on the 2/1, and leaving for a trip on 2/5. Any tips as I'm traveling? I am nervous about reintroducing and being on the go. Any tips are appreciated!
  9. I've completed my first Whole30 on Monday. Today is my Day 3 of re-introduction. I am literally craving some chocolate! Like, a delicious, good chocolate (See's Chocolate, Trader Joe's Dark chocolate covered caramels). I'm a female and have already had the time of the month last week. So, I'm just curious if this is just me. Literally drinking Decaf Coffee to get me by.
  10. Hi All, I just completed the whole30, woo hoo! I did the Whole30 because I am Celiac and even with eliminating gluten, I have been having a lot of digestive issues and bloating. I now feel amazing and am ready to start the reintroduction period. I was looking at the fast-track reintroduction period, and it shows that I am supposed to reintroduce each category back one at a time (legumes, diary, gf grains, etc.). Since I am doing this to find out what specifically bothers me, do I need to break out the foods within those categories as well? If I just do legumes all in one day, how will I know if soy or beans are the culprit? Do I need separate days for wine and beer? I just want to make sure I use this to really figure out what bothers me. Suggestions? I was looking at something like this for the reintro schedule: Day 1: Added sugar (cane sugar in coffee, honey with sweet tea or drizzled on a sweet potato, salmon glazed with maple syrup, maple chicken sausage, honey ham) Day 3: Soy Day 6: Legumes (beans, chickpeas, lentils, peas, peanuts) Day 9: Corn Day 12: Non-gluten Grains (rice, gf bread, oats, quinoa) Day 15: Dairy (butter, yogurt, cheese, kefir, milk) Day 18: Gluten-free Alcohol (red/white wine, gf beer, 100% agave tequila, potato vodka) Day 21: Eggs Day 24: Nightshades (peppers, tomatoes, white potatoes Some other questions I have are: If I find out that a category does not bother me, can I continue eating it during reintroduction? Do I have to worry about added sugar during the Whole30 compliant days? Thanks, Jessica

    Beans and break-outs

    Hi there everyone! I finished my Whole30 last week and chose to reintroduce legumes on day 31. I ate black beans with lunch and then hummus and carrots for a snack. I felt fine the next two days after that. I didn’t want to reintroduce peanut butter on the legumes day because in the past i would always get a stomach ache after having it. But on the day I was supposed to reintroduce gluten-free grains i decided to give peanutbutter a try after all (which I’m not even entirely sure if that was ok... but I gave it two days) It did give me a slight stomach ache which was gone as fast as it came - but I did notice. Anywho long story short i think it was on the day I had peanutbutter (or maybe the day after I reintroduced legumes the first time) I noticed that the skin around my mouth/on my chin started to break out a little. Yesterday and today I’ve noticed that there are some zits on my forehead also. Nothing crazy, I don’t deal with acne thank God, but I didn’t get breakouts on the whole30. My skin actually was pretty great after around day 13 of whole30... (I think the breakouts then we’re caused by dairy though.) Would you suggest I should go back on the Whole30 until the breakouts have stopped and then try legumes again? Or should i wait until the breakouts are gone and reintroduce something else? I appreciate your guys‘ help!! So glad to have done the whole30 and to now be able to come here and get help from this awesome community! Theresa
  12. Hi, So I will start off by saying totally failed reintroduction. I completed a whole45, and I was contemplating making it to 60 days, but at the last minute thought, "let me try this and see how I feel." I didn't think too much about reintroduction because I planned, and have, basically maintained the whole30 diet. I feel so much better this way, and I love the meals I make! I just want the occasional ice cream once in awhile. And of course, when my face broke out I thought well is it from _____ or ______ or ________? So my question is this, I am contemplating following the Ketotarian diet as described on the "Do the Thing" podcast. But I am wondering if I need to do a complete whole30 with reintroduction to see what foods do and do not work for my body, or could it be shortened to two weeks + reintroduction since I've mostly maintained the whole30 diet? I would like to go into the Ketotarian diet with whole30 foods that work for me. Thank You!
  13. Hello! I'm on day 20 and I'm psyched for my reintroduction stage. I'm curious, why would I have to go Whole30 every two days if the new food group doesn't give me any bad reactions? For example, lets say I add in gluten grains and I get no bad reactions. Am I good to eat gluten from now on?
  14. Come along for the Lent whole 30 reintroduction starting this Easter 2019. I am determined to have a very pure reintroduction to learn what my body can really handle to strive towards BFF! I am not reintroducing alcohol this time to keep my Sugar Dragon calm.
  15. I’m on day 23 of the elimination phase. I’ve done my share of whole30ing over the last 7 years but have always neglected the reintroduction. At 16, I decided gluten was an incarnation of the devil himself and am regrettably in the category of people who will liberally use the c word (celiac) in restaurants. Sorry. Having recently read Food Freedom Forever (thanks Melissa) I am determined to follow through with the thoughtful reintroduction it deserves. With all the GF options available, I haven’t touched gluten for years. I’m actually a little scared of it. Previously I attributed it to unshakeable sleepiness and intense despressive episodes, dark enough to make quitting a lifelong love for toast surprisingly straightforward. I don’t miss it, but there are some glutenous things (namely French pastries) I’ve never had that I might want to experience, if I knew they was worth it. For science, I feel that I should check if this fear is still valid. But I also really don’t want to trigger a nasty psychological response, nor would I want to regularly include gluten in my post whole30 life even if it has no effect. To reintroduce or not? Your thoughts would be much appreciated. Thank you
  16. I finished my Whole30 R2 on Feb. 12th. I lost 5 pounds and felt great BUT totally love the tiger blood I felt being so clean. I gradually added back sugar (Raw sugar and added sugar in food) . Then 2 days reset. Then I added some gluten in the form of crackers and bread. I have also added back alcohol in the form of Potato Vodka. I started out with a Bloody Mary then settled in on a potato based Vodka Tonic. All was going well. I added back some dairy in the form of ice cream. All is still going well. Then I added back artificial sweetners in my coffee, in my sparkling water, in my applesauce and then the lower GI went crazy! My eating has settled into a routine and I am just fine WITHOUT too many grains, dairy, and legumes. I enjoy one of my 'Tater tonics' on Friday's and Saturday's but during the week I stick pretty close to the Whole30. Breakfasts are eggs and veggies and fruit. Lunch is either some form of a salad or soup and a fruit. Dinner is usually a protein, a veggie and a fruit. Over the last month I have felt great and motivated. Eating is easier than it has ever been with no guilt. I have lost 2 more pounds over the last month in spite of a few days when i went totally out of control with my grandkids. I immediately did a reset for 7 days and the bloated and foggy feeling went away with the tiger blood coming back. I am changing a couple of attitudes - increasing activity and just watching my eating. My weight loss expectations are only a half pound a week. I have 9 more pounds to go so I am in no hurry. I will come back to my blog as time goes by.
  17. As I understand it, I am supposed to reintroduce one food group at a time by eating it for one day, and then go back on the regular whole30 diet for two days before introducing another food. My questions are: 1. Once I reintroduce a food can I continue to eat it as I reintroduce others? 2. If I don’t have a reaction, can I reintroduce another food without waiting the 2 days? 3. Why isn’t there a reintroduction for food preservatives and sugar?
  18. Getting close to my 30 days! and thinking ahead for when I decide to implement the reintroduction of certain foods. I've been using Nutpods for my coffee creamer but find them a bit expensive. (I tried drinking my coffee black) After doing some research on coconut milk, I found all the chilled was sweetened and all the carton unsweetened coconut milk I could find had collogeanan. (I tried the canned but couldn't get it to mix well) My question is: if I'm going to use one or the other, would it be better to use unsweetened coconut milk in the carton or dairy milk? (Dairy has never bothered me as far as I know and I don't use much)
  19. I am on Day 30. I'm doing fine with the eating and have noticed some positive changes. Good amount of energy, sleeping well, and the migraines I had been having for a couple months have gone away. Score! But, over the last 2 weeks I've developed consistent acid reflux. I have a burning feeling in my upper abdomen the majority of the day....every.day. It's not debilitating, but it is uncomfortable and I've never dealt with acid reflux or this burning sensation before. What gives? Giving my typical meals below: Breakfast - always either 3 eggs and 2 pieces of bacon (sometimes w/ 1/2 avocado) OR a hash with sweet potatoes, veggies, and compliant sausage/chorizo Lunch - Dinner leftovers or a salad with chicken/steak and homemade ranch Dinner - Grilled protein (chicken, steak, fish) with salad and roasted vegetables. Sometimes roasted potatoes thrown in. I mix things up occassionally and will do something like a stir fry or meatballs for dinner. But the pattern of food has been consistent for 30 days now. Any tips?? I'm scared to start reintroducing other foods when some the "good foods" i'm eating now are potentially the cause of this issue.
  20. Quick question about reintroduction- I’m starting with legumes and got a packet of Rx honey cinnamon peanut butter and a packet of the Justin’s peanut butter - obviously the Rx has honey added and I’m wondering if for reintroduction if I should stick to the plain one - thank you for your advice in advance!
  21. Hi- I am finishing up my Whole30 next week, I am so excited to start the reintroduction and find my food freedom. I am planning on doing a modified short/long approach. Basically there are a few food groups I want to split up to get more specifics on. I have already been diagnosed with gluten intolerance so I'm not reintroducing gluten. My plan is to do something sort of like this: Legumes (wait 2 days) Soy (wait 2 days) Non gluten grains excluding corn (wait 2 days) Corn (Wait 2 days) Dairy I'm splitting into 2 days because I Want to evaluate Goat's milk separately Couple questions: Does this look ok? Kind of in the middle, I have an event and I would really like to just have a meal with some wine - I would be having both dairy and non gluten grains during that meal- would it be ok to have the meal wait two days and then continue the reintro process? Thank you in advance!
  22. Ok, so tomorrow is day 30, and for the past week or so, I have had some digestive issues while following whole30. I cannot figure out what is causing this because I am eating mainly the same exact foods I was eating during the first couple weeks (when I felt great). Any ideas on what could be the cause? I'm nervous to reintroduce anything before I figure out what is causing my current issues. Thanks for any input!
  23. Not sure if I should post this here or in reintroduction... I'm coming up on the end of my Whole30 and trying to map out my dairy reintro. Since this is my second go, I'm skipping reintroducing legumes and GF grains, and doing a dairy break down- lactose free, then grassfed, then conventional. Please send ideas for dairy heavy meals.
  24. I did the September Whole30 which was quite an eye opener - so many NSV! Especially my sleep quality has drastically improved, my mood was better, and my energy stayed constant. My psoriasis symptoms slightly improved. I lost 6 lbs which I am happy about. I started reintroduction with a glass red wine and because of that I had a second glass and then I binged chocolate. Quite a learning experience! I went back to Whole30 for three days and then did the reintro with only one glass of wine (I learned something here) which went fine. However, my sleep quality is not as good, my energy fluctuates. I am back to Whole30 since and today is the first day I feel “Whole30-good” again. Now I am wondering if I should extend my Whole30 to 90 days to allow my body more time to heal. I have lost another 3 lbs since and psoriasis symptoms seem to improve gradually. I am ok with cravings; I actually believe I am still in to process of getting used of not having foods that make me binge, like cheese. I am reluctant to introduce other foods because I am afraid to lose all the NSV which are such a tremendous improvement of life quality. On the other side, I worry never to reach “food freedom”. Do you have any advice? Does anyone have a similar experience?
  25. 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?
