altyburger posted a topic in Whole30 ReintroductionHello! I wanted to post about my reintro so far. Day 1 of Reintro, on Saturday, I had a dried chickpea snack in the afternoon and a good portion of black beans with a shrimp salad at a Mexican restaurant, as well as some peanut butter that morning. The peanut butter affected me slightly, but the other legumes seemed to be just fine! Day 2, I had a bowl of brown rice and tuna for lunch. I saw on these boards that the brown rice can be harder to digest than white rice, but I seemed to be okay in digesting it. The one difference is how tired I felt afterward. I guess it was the carb load! I ended my day with some organic corn tortilla chips and salsa with friends...and I ate almost the whole bag! Yeah bad decision. But even when I first started I could tell the corn was hard to digest. I think I am going to try again with another round of gluten-free grains with real corn on Friday. We shall see how things go. So Far, corn has been the only issue. Before Whole 30, I had some digestive issues, so I am surprised to not have as strong of affects with the other foods I have tried thus far. The way everyone talks on this board and in general is that you have MAJOR affects, but I'm just not seeing it. I have LOVED doing the whole 30, and have seen all kinds of NSVs, but as I reintroduce, I am not seeing much of a difference. Thoughts? Finally, in a separate issue, I am starting my period soon. Would any moderators recommend doing reintro after menstruation? Would this be significant in detecting how different food groups affect me?
