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!!
CricketProtein posted a topic in Can I have ___?In reading the section on beans, it sounds like one of the main issues (excluding the phytoestrogen hormones on Soy) is that the high carbohydrate content causes gut-disrupting bacteria to grow and produce gas. My question is why is the high fiber and carbohydrate content of potatoes any different? Fruits and potatoes have a large degree of fiber and carbohydrates (potatoes more so on the starch front) but isn't the end-result the same? I would think if we are trying to reduce gut-disrupting bacteria, we'd need to remove potatoes and starchy fruit from the equation as well.
