How many people have found they have gluten free grain sensitivity after reintroduction? I just finished a successful Whole 30 last week, and have reintroduced legumes (resulting in a slightly bloated belly), and GF grains. And the result were not great. I have celiac disease, and have been 100% gluten free for almost 8 years. I've known for a long time that something else in my diet was also problematic, but had a hard time pinning it down. This week, after having sushi rice and corn tortillas (both labeled GF on the packages, so unlikely to be cross contamination), I'm a bit dismayed to find that even GF grains are a problem for me to eat. They make me immediately bloated and cause me to burp-- it's a VERY mild version of what happens if I accidentally have gluten. I'm almost in denial about this, because seriously? Life without grains? As if being a celiac isn't enough of a pain already. Does anyone else react badly to GF grains?
Tomorrow is day 30. I've done whole30 probably 5 times successfully and two or three not so much. This time I've done great with the eating. I'm through with soy, peanuts most of the time, corn most of the time and sugar most of the time and I'm wating to try, grains, dairy and legumes. (I miss rice and beans and cream the most) What I've Never done correctly is re introduction, its usually like a bite, then everything at once. This time I want to do better. I want to do wheat grain first because I think I'm sensitive, and I'd like to get it over with so I can jst move on. I'm going to go to an Italian restaurant with friends on Saturday. I'm thinking a simple spaghetti and sauce and meatballs or chicken and pasta. (no cheese) with bread. So question. If Saturday is day one, should I have wheat grains on sunday and Monday too? (providing there are no symptoms) I'm thiking after I do dairy and legumes, I'll try rice. fter that, I'm planning to do mostly whole 30 for six months or so, because my body loses weight slow or not at all and with whole 30 I get body comp changes and I'm hoping in a month or two more weight loss. I just wanna know for sure.
HollyBee posted a topic in Troubleshooting your Whole30I was wondering if anyone had experience with a histamine reaction early on. I've developed a wheezy productive cough since day 2 that feels a bit like asthma, and some intermittent sneezing and post-nasal drip that seems to be worse after eating then resolves (congested bronchi feeling stays though). I've had very mild seasonal allergies in the distant past, and have a slight mold allergy. I've never had any kind of noticeable reaction to anything I've eaten before, and at first I thought it was possibly a "healing crisis" carb flu type reaction to not eating dairy or grains. (I've done low carb before but always with full fat dairy and a little whole grain (like Kavli crackers). The is the first time I've ever been dairy and grain free.) Has anyone ever heard of a histamine reaction to foods like almonds or coconut? I'll list my four days below in case anyone has any ideas. Other than some nausea, which resolved, I've been feeling pretty great except for the allergy symptoms. I'm coming off of a really terrible carb, sugar and PUFA laden diet. This seems to be getting worse, so I'm not sure if I should let it run it's course (if it's more of a detox symptom) or medicate (benadryl) or try to lay off the nuts and coconut (which would really be depressing). I guess I'm leaning towards wait and see, watch and wait, but after my last meal, I'm getting some swelling in the roof of my mouth, so I don't want to aggravate any possible developing allergy by keeping on with the food. Anyone have any thoughts about differentiating allergies from detox symptoms? Thanks for the expert advice folks! I love this forum.... Day One 1. coffee with coconut oil 2. Baby greens and tuna 3.
