CAN SOMEONE TELL ME IF I NEED TO START MY WHOLE30 OVER My last whole 30, I made everything at home because HOW CAN YOU REALLY TRUST SOMEONE??? I get so much anxiety about, what if there is butter on the grill. What if they are using canola oil... and so on and so on that I can't even eat out anymore without feeling super guilty even after checking with them on all the ingredients. Well, this whole 30 ...I ordered the whole30 chipotle bowl twice. The first time I thought - wow this tastes great!! The second time I thought... is this too good to be true? How do I know they used the right chicken? What if the person making this bowl didn't know exactly what needed to be in it?! And then the whammer…. I found a corn kernel in my salad bowl! I took it out, but that was half way through eating. What if I accidentally unknowingly ate another corn kernel??? My friend says I'm being ridiculous and don't need to start over on Day 1.... but I just don't know. Can someone please ignore my craziness for a second and tell me what you honestly think???? THANKS and also, any tips for guilt-free eating out?
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
Hey guys, I'm currently in the reintroduction phase of my whole30. Yesterday I reintroduced dairy. I consumed both lactose containing and non lactose containing dairy. Although I did have a couple of physical symptoms, my primary reaction was psychological. I felt anxious the entire day and I experienced insomnia. Has anyone else had some mental side effects during their reintroduction? I looked it up this morning, and was surprised to see that it is a documented side effect for some.
Hello! I completed my first Whole 30 last week and decided to very slowly try reintroducing foods. I love love love sugar, did I tell you I love sugar? I am 100% an addict. I believe the 30 days may be the longest I have ever gone without a sugary treat or any added sugar to foods. I decided after the 30 days I would eat some Starburst jelly beans (MY FAV!!!), I was very disappointed when I realized they weren't as mouth watering as they were before Whole 30. WOOHOO! Guess what? I ate them anyway, not as many as I would have 2 months ago - only about a 1/2 a cup. This was last Friday evening. I woke up the next morning feeling fine, ate a high protein breakfast, went for a pedicure, then went to a restaurant with a friend where I could not eat anything but fruit. I also had a Lara bar. We were sitting there chatting and I starting feel terribly anxious, nauseous, jittery and dizzy. My friend drove me home and I bounced back in about 4+ hours, but it was very unexpected. Fast forward to last night, I ate Cadbury chocolate eggs - the small ones. I had a one serving small bag. Again, not flavorful and not worth it. I woke up this morning feeling fine, by noon I was super anxious, feeling like I had taken No-Doze (those pills we used to take to help us stay up to study), my mind was racing, I could not chill out. I have anxiety and I have panic attacks. I have been on anti-depressants for 25 years. The Whole 30 has cleared the cob webs out of my head and helped with my daily anxiety. Was this a sugar side effect? Has anyone else ever experienced this? Thank you!!!
