So I totally killed my flow and ate a bag of pretzels last night. Thankfully, I was only on day 5. I spent hours and hours salivating over the thought of a bread product and I just couldn't take it anymore. I also have OCD and a history of disordered eating, so I'm faced with a million triggers each day. I am a total believer in the science and research behind Whole 30, but there is one question that I'm REALLY struggling with. Especially because my brain is not doing well being told that it can't have dairy for another 30 days. I understand that eating dairy, for example, during reintroduction can cause a plethora of digestive issues. However, when I eat broccoli, for example, I experience gas and bloating for a couple of hours. Especially when I haven't eaten it in a while. So how is it that both can cause the same issue, when one is a known inflammatory and one isn't? This observation has caused me to doubt the reintroduction process ... and I don't want to doubt !
I'm on Day 5 of my Whole30 and this evening I seemed to hit Day 6 on the Timeline. The past two nights I've also had dreams about being really mean to people, though that didn't seem to happen in real life. However, today the most striking thing has been that my OCD seems to have flared up. I only have very slight OCD... I tend to count things, do things a certain number of times, bite my lips, and repeat phrases or numbers several times. Today, this has just seemed really intense. Anyone else with subclinical OCD experience anything like this on their Whole30?
