    UTI during ReIntro

    #ptl I haven't had a UTI for years (after going through a period of multiple UTI's in a short time) and but now I've ended up with one during reintro. Any thoughts on a potential cause? I've reintroduced legumes, milk, cheese, oats and a little sugar. I've learned alcohol can be a trigger for bladder irritation so haven't ventured there.
  2. Hello whole30 family! Really at a struggle right now and need some advice! I started my second ever whole30 last week. I had a week moment last night at a work function and am now restarting my 30 days. I had my reintro originally lined up perfectly to finish the day before my family thanksgiving. And now with the restart thanksgiving will be right in the middle of my reintroduction!! With that being said I’m looking for a strategy to approach dinner. I find my mothers thanksgiving foods very much worth it! We literally only make these certain foods for this holiday and I really don’t want to miss it, but I also don’t want to mess up a proper reintroduction! I was thinking of introducing dairy first, with three days of whole30 eating and the maybe reintroducing gluten on the day of our dinner. So that way I can have at least most of the foods that are being served (or at least the ones that I find worth it) and then have a solid 4-5 days whole30 after that and then continue my reintroduction. Good idea or bad? Any other ideas on how to approach? My other idea is to just enjoy the day, go back to whole30 for a week, and then properly start my reintroduction? HELP PLEASE!
  3. Hi! Starting reintroduce on Tuesday! I have never done reintroduce before, and I'm a little confused about the added sugar part. The reintroduction part on the Whole30 website says to add one thing back for a day while keeping the rest of your diet whole30, then go back to Whole30 for 2 days, fine. My question though is what about things like dairy and gluten. I saw a whole30er I follow on instagram use Noosa yogurt for dairy reintro, which for SURE has added sugar. Is it okay to have legumes/gf grains/dairy/gluten with added sugar? I've been unsure about how to reintroduce these things because most of them have added sugar. I was thinking of getting my beloved soy latte at starbucks for legumes but I know that the soy at starbucks has sugar. Any advice would be appreciated. :-)

    Intolerance or Shock?

    Hey there, I am wondering how much of the reintro is just your body in shock of a food group it hasn't had in a while? For example, I had minor reactions to soy/legumes and non-gluten grains, but had pretty severe diarrhea and intestinal cramping from dairy and gluten. I tried gluten again the following days after day 10 of reintro and didn't have a reaction to whole grain bread or a mini muffin. To my understanding, this is also a lot of spectators' objection to this program. So how do I know if this is shock or if I really should never eat dairy again (my worst reaction)?
  5. Hi Gang - I'm on day 23 of my first Whole30. I started this whole dealeo due to my uber-active sugar dragon. I LOVE sweets and have since I was a kid. But I realize I have a pretty unhealthy relationship with food, turning to sweets/snacks when I'm bored or frustrated at work or missing my boyfriend or just want that deliciously rich flavor of brownie batter in my life. I'm the girl who makes brownie batter to have it in my fridge to eat with a spoon after dinner (or sometimes as dinner). So, I am trying to break this (unhealthy?) attachment. Problem is, I don't know if I want to say goodbye to the sweets. The idea of a warm brownie with a glass of red wine has literally brought me to tears a few times in the past 23 days. I don't want to break up with that ooey gooey melt-in-your-mouth goodness. It brings me joy! It makes me happy! It gives me life! Well, that last one was a bit of an overstatement, but you get my point. And I don't notice any stomach issues after eating sweets...but I'm sure I would if I started back on my old habits after 30 days. So I'm struggling with my future after the 30 days. Do I indulge once a week? Or do I break up with something that makes me happy forever? Is it bad to get joy from (bad for you) food? Help! How to I keep my desire for cakes, brownies, cookies in check?
  6. Ok, forgive me for the graphic descriptions and I am sorry if this has been addressed already. I could not find anything that specifically focuses on post program bowel problems. Especially when there weren't any during the round. Throughout my 30 days I followed everything to the T. I remain 100% compliant to this day minus the 4 re-intro days and a 5th day where I ate half of a twix stick (out of 4 sticks) - this was the first time I had sugar in 49 days but it was after I was already having the problems so I don't think it is related. During whole30 my bathroom time was not the best but not the worst. I actually had relatively solid movements (sometimes not but not diarrhea) and pretty regular movements. This is different for me as I have suffered from constipation and IBS since I was a child. I expected this to happen with such a drastic diet change and it was welcomed. After whole30 I did reintroduction and everything effected me minimally (mostly bloating, gas, acheyness)... until dairy. Dairy hit me HARD. My belly threw a giant temper tantrum and I struggled for 5 days with persistent diarrhea daily. Multiple trips to the bathroom and no substance what so ever. I drink lots of water though I don't exactly count how much. My meals since whole30 have gotten smaller because it seems that if I eat too much or honestly eat at all it makes my stomach upset. I keep them mostly compliant to the template though. On the 5th day I decided to try a probiotic and a digestive enzyme. I researched and got the 50billion ultra jarrodophilus and the garden of life raw enzymes for women. The day after that I felt great, no multiple trips to the bathroom, but by the end of the day I did still have diarrhea. For the last few days after starting the supplements I continue to have diarrhea about once or twice a day. It has been 9 days since dairy re-intro. I typically have over easy eggs in the morning with some sort of veggie and avocado or ranch or pesto. If I am in a hurry and can't cook I will have applesauce or grapes and some cashews but this doesn't happen a lot maybe twice in the last 9 days. my lunch usually consists of dinner leftovers which have been: buffalo chicken salad (buffalo sauce from book, small amount of onion and mushroom, chicken, romaine and home made ranch) swai (fish) with garlic lemon ghee topping, chipotle seasoning, zoodles and cauliflower alfredo (cauliflower, garlic, onion, nutritional yeast, chicken broth, coconut cream) I do not snack. I do drink kombucha on occasion - maybe 1/4 to 1/2 a bottle once or twice a week (typically GT's Trilogy), and I don't really eat fruit other than the occasional hurried breakfast. sometimes after I eat (since reintroduction) my stomach becomes rumbly and I feel a bit nauseous and gassy. I am thinking I need to eliminate nuts for awhile just to see, but I don't really know if this is the overall problem as I was eating these during the round as well. All of these major, questionable, annoying problems started after whole30 re-intro... Should I just keep waiting it out? Is this just a delayed detox? I am getting very frustrated and so sick of having to go to the bathroom all the time! Thanks for any help you can give!
  7. Forgive me if this is TMI, but I’m getting a bit concerned and I want to know if anyone else has experienced this. I completed my first whole 30 on Jan 30th, throughout which I felt great and had no issues with that time of the month. Once I finished and started reintroducing non-compliant Foods, I started spotting... which turned into basically a full-blown cycle that won’t go away. I read about people spotting while ON whole30, but my experience is AFTER. I’m on the pill in the middle of the month and absolutely shouldn’t have any period right now. It’s never happened to me before and I’ve been on the pill for 10+ years. Is it possible this could be related to reintroducing non compliant foods? -anyone with relatable experiences?
  8. Looking for any suggestions for tortillas/chips that are compliant.

    Day # 50

    It is 50 days since I started whole30. I tried a single buttered corn on the cob for re-entry & it was yummy, but no need to repeat that. Used to have low carb ice cream every day, but none at all now. I drink mostly sparkling water with lime sections. I've had to half my blood pressure med 'cause pressure went too low. Stopped having constipation. I've never eaten so much vegetables & fruit in my life. Breakfast is commonly spinach, green bell pepper, onions, & tomatoes, 3 egg omelette. Very little coffee. Using salt more because you pointed out non-processed foods have lowered my salt intake. I'm sleeping very well, excercising most days with moderate weights & 2 mile walk. Lost 8lbs in 1st 30 days & plan on another weight at day # 60 to avoid weight dependent mood swings. So glad I overheard someone encouraging my friend to try whole30. He didn't, I did.
  10. So I finished my Whole30 14 days ago, I managed the Reintroduction pretty well and slow but I went on a trip this weekend. I Wanted to stay as "healthy" as possible but --- ok here's the confession time... I had Pizza, Birthday Cake, Beer, some Tequila Shots and Whiskey, I also had some popcorn and a Muffin.. so yup... I Kinda fell of the wagon I mean the muffin and the popcorn were hangover consequences, I didn't feel any changes on my body on the weekend, just kinda bloated. I came back to the city and on Monday I was completely Whole30, but yesterday I went to the movies with a friend , I decided I was going to eat a whole bucket of popcorn (why not.....) caramel and butter popcorn... I ate the whole thing..and consequences where horrible. I felt I was going to explode, I was so tired througout the rest of the day.. My face started breaking out today , I couln't even sleep or wake up early... Ugh!!! I even noticed I had some new breakouts around the legs close to the .. uhmmm butt area. I'm not sure if it was a mix of the weekend and the popcorn but definitely popcorn didnt make me feel well, I mean i'm so gassy... tired and my appetite is kinda supressed.. so yup there goes popcorn. It's gonna be a while I guess till I decide to eat some again. I recently started reading "Full Freedom Forever" let's see how that goes...

    Day # 31

    I weighed myself for 1st time since I started & lost 8lbs over whole30, that's 2 lbs a week. I did catch accidental glimpses of my mid-section tire deflating over the month. I'm not craving anything to reintroduce, but I thought I'd try corn on the cob. I'm not going back to sugar or artificial sweeteners. I've never eaten so many vegetables & fruit, and I'd like to keep that up. I had no trouble adhering to the plan on the road or in restaurants. I appreciate whole30 for teaching me how to eat sanely. I am a medical doctor, but untrained in nutrition. Thank you.
  12. Howdy! This is a new thread for all of us who started the Whole30 on March 27th 2017 and want to keep in touch during our re-intro phase.
  13. Hi! I'm Chellie, and I am finishing up my second Whole30 (had a day 10 fail back in January). I've discovered that the forum is really great for my accountability, so this is my new home! I'm short on time right now, so I'll do more "bio" later. I am currently training for a half-marathon at the end of the month and two triathlons (one mini-sprint, one sprint distance) this summer. My topics here will center on food choices, carting kids to sports practices, training successes and failures, and other general life stuff. Chime in! Join the fun! I'm feeling the tiger blood and wearing a tight shirt that didn't fit 30 days ago, so help me keep it going!
  14. Hi coming up on the end of my second whole30 and I really want to try reintroducting soy by itself but somewhat at a loss as to how. I have two different organic soy sauces in the fridge but they both have wheat in them. What can I try that just has soy? Thank you!
  15. I know, I know, I know. It's not a "diet". I completely understand that WHOLE30 is a way of rediscovering how your body will work with good quality food. I know. But. I'm fat. I had a good 65 lbs to shake off. I am thrilled to report that just about 18lbs melted away during my first WHOLE30 which ended last week. I loved the experience. I learned so much about the food we are presented with (so much freaking sugar! SO MUCH!!!!). And I love how I feel. Now, let's get down to business. I plan on continuing my new eating habits. I do not intend on reintroducing dairy or processed carbs or grains. I will have to bend a bit on the veggie oil rule in order to eat out. Legumes seem minor to me - aside from the garbanzo bean in a salad or hummus I can't seem to find them in my past diet so I'm not really missing them. The only thing I will go back to is alcohol. I'm not a huge drinker (two glasses of wine per week and a margarita on vaca) but I know this is something I want back in my world. Here's the catch. My WHOLE30 ended last week. I have not reintroduced anything yet (haven't gotten around to that glass of wine, if you can believe it!) but I haven't lost a pound in over a week. Is there a "plateauing" zone? I have the weight to lose. I am not on my last 10lbs and struggling. I have 47lbs to go. Does the body "get used" to good food and just hang there? I can't imagine cutting anything out of my diet. Do I need to ramp up the exercise? Do I just hold steady and this too shall pass? Any insight would be helpful!
