  1. 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
  2. Hi there, I am at the re-introduction phase and having issues with almost all of the food I didn't have during the whole 30! When I reintroduced wheat and soy (wheat, then soy), I had allergic reactions: hives, itchiness, and even throat-closing (I was almost getting Epipen!). Prior to the whole 30, I have no problem with wheat or soy, other than minor digestion issues. Sugar gave me a migraine (wasn't able to work for a half day). Rice, which was introduced the first even before wheat and soy, turned out to be OK, although I had a bit of bloating and tiredness. I feel like I am "oversensitive" to the food that I didn't have during the whole 30. At the post-whole 30, has anyone experienced allergic reactions (or allergy-like symptoms) to the food that you used to be OK with?
  3. Hello. This is my first time doing Whole30. I have fibromyalgia and a gluten allergy. I am on Day 9. ALWAYS when I eat I get incredibly cranky, dizzy, and tired to the point of not being able to stand up. Since starting this diet ALL of those problems have gone away. I’ve had so much energy, I don’t get dizzy and cranky when I eat, and I haven’t taken any involuntary naps after eating. Until today. It’s come back and I’m looking for advice as I’m scared, because I was so relived everything was going well. For context, I haven’t slipped or cheated. Last night I ate out for the first time, I had unseasoned boiled chicken and green beans and broccoli at Applebee’s thought. Today my menstraul cycle started. And what I just ate was chili lime chicken breast Cobb salad recipe from the Whole30 instagram. 20 minutes after eating I got extremely dizzy and cranky. I got so tired I couldn’t stand. I had to lay down and legitimately fought to stay conscious and couldn’t. This hasn’t happened since I started the diet and I desperately don’t want it to start again because it’s scary. If anyone has been through this or has any idea what’s happening to me, I’d really appreciate the input. I was really happy being healthy for once. Thanks
  4. I did my first round whole 30 minutes successful and felt great. Did the slow roll reintro by the books. Today was my gluten reintro day. Ive heard oats can contain some amounts of gluten so i thought id start there. Had an acai bowl from Costco with banana chip granola(oats) and ive thrown up about 7 times since (11am -230pm), have unbearable stomach pains, and symptoms arent lightening up. Is this normal/common? My mom and sister both have celiac disease... is my body telling me i have it too? Thanks for the insight!
  5. Wondering if anybody knows this - can the Whole30 program actually CAUSE your body to become MORE intolerant to certain things, like dairy or gluten, since you are eliminating them for at least 30 days? As in, you can currently eat bread and have no major issues, but at the end of Whole30, you eat bread and suddenly feel like you are dying? Or, in the reintroduction if these foods cause you trouble, is it because they have been doing so all along, and you just didn't notice it? Doing this program with my sister and a few friends, and my sister is very concerned that it is going to end up MAKING her intolerant to gluten and grains.

    Healed my gut

    I completed the whole30 three weeks ago. Before I did this, I had gluten intolerance / wheat allergy for a number of years (please note I was not a coeliac). Since the whole30 program ended, I have eaten quite a lot of gluten products and I haven't noticed any terrible symptoms at all. I was skeptical that I would see any improvements to my body and digestive system after the whole30, I had zero expectations and therefore I was just sitting here and suddenly had a light bulb moment when I realised - hey, maybe my gut has actually healed itself. Maybe this 30 days actually did something! On a side note, I know the program allows coffee however I cut out coffee for the entire time and when I started drinking it again, I had side effects from the caffeine, so now I've had to remove coffee from my diet as it was causing rapid heartbeat and anxiety like symptoms until the caffeine left my system. Food for thought!!
  7. Hello, I completed my whole30 about 2 weeks ago and felt incredible for maybe the first time in my life. The first thing I reintroduced was dairy and while I didn't have any immediately noticeable side effects, about 24 hours later I had stomach cramps, bloating and diarrhea that lasted for about another day. It was enough to make me aware of the adverse reaction but only lasted about a day. After the negative reaction I went back to a whole30 diet for about a week and 3 days ago reintroduced gluten. Again there were no immediate effects but the next morning I had severe stomach pain that lasted well into the afternoon, diarrhea all day, and a headache at the base of my skull that was awful. I woke up this morning and the stomach pain is again terrible, still have frequent diarrhea and bloating, and the headache has persisted. The stomach pains are almost debilitating and it leads me to ask is this normal? The pain comes and goes but it is so severe that it makes it difficult to function. I generally have a very high pain tolerance and am not just being a cissy, lol. If this is a normal side effect is it common for it to be so severe nearly 3 days after ingesting the gluten? Are there any suggestions for alleviating the symptoms to get some relief? Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you!!
  8. Hi all! Today is the last day of my reintroduction period and I dived in with gluten. I don't have celiac and I didn't notice issues with gluten during my last Whole 30. However, today I had some whole wheat toast with breakfast and not even an hoir later...BAM! BRAIN FOG has settled in. Is this a common reaction I can contribute to gluten sensitivity?
