    Dairy Reintroduction Issues

    I re-introduced dairy on Sunday and then ate clean on Monday and today. On Monday I felt lethargic and had a generally upset stomach. Today I have painful bloating and has. Could this still be a reaction from Sunday’s dairy?
  2. Right I am back again to write up how I have been getting on with my reintroduction. I have been keeping notes on Google Keep. Day 1 Sunday 7th October 2018 Breakfast 3 fried eggs, mushrooms with spinach, leftover fried ptoatoes, 1 avocado rice wafer, sip of watered sherry Lunch Dahl (red lentils), added kale, spinach, courgette, pepper, broccoli, carrot. Coconut cauliflower rice made with coconut oil and coconut milk. Dinner Dahl with vegetables from earlier, coconut cauliflower rice with added vegetables. Thoughts As it was Sunday, I managed some shopping, so did some cooking. I cooked frittata with 9 eggs, so a third wil be enough for breakfast. Vegetables added to frittata - mushrooms, spinach, pepper, onion, kale. I boiled some eggs and made some mayonnaise. The mayonnaise was not a success because I used the wrong sort of olive oil. I then investigated buying the light tasting olive oil. It was hard to find, but I then realised that the olive oil that is called 'light in colour' is the light tasting olive oil. So I was able to buy this from Aldi. Now today was noticeable colder and I had a runny nose, I don't know if this is down to the lentils or the weather. I also noticed looser bowel movements on Monday morning.
  3. I am ready to reintroduce some food. I had a wonderful experience with Whole30 but here on day 31 I am ready to have some chickpea hummus. I would like help with some products that I cannot find on the lists. Is using soy sauce part of the legume reintroduction? When I reintroduce non gluten foods, is regular pasta in that group or is it a gluten food?
  4. Wrapped up my first Whole30 in October and reintroduced legumes on Oct 31st: peanut butter, hummus and black beans — probably 2T of each. I thought it would be an easy first re-intro because I didn’t think these foods bothered me... (haaaa) That day I was super bloated, the next day I had small dry, itchy patches on my ear lobes and a couple bumps around my wrist/forearm area which has turned into a rash that has gotten worse and moved to other areas every day since. It is currently covering my ears, arms, neck and most of my face. It has been 6 days since I reintroduced legumes. I’ve stuck to a Whole30 diet since reintroduction day. I’ve applied tea tree oil with jojoba or coconut oil and Benadryl cream which helps the itching and inflammation but doesn’t make it go away, and taken Benadryl at night which hasn’t lessened the rash. Logging my experience since in case anyone searching for something similar can read — and wondering if anyone else has experienced symptoms lasting this long and getting worse everyday. Starting to worry that something else is going on, with terrible timing! Thanks!
  5. I'm on day 7 of my reintroduction. I've been following the regular protocol. But I can't really tell whether I have symptoms or not. - I'm tired all the time: No wonder, because I have a 14-month-old who is sleep regressing, so I'm not interpreting that as a consequence of what I'm eating. I actually making it through the days pretty well without a strong need for a nap, so perhaps the Whole 30 has actually been helping. - allergies: days 1, 2, 3 I suffered from nasty allergies in the morning. BUT, they started before I had even introduced the first food at breakfast, so I'm guessing this isn't food-related. (My only thought is that I go to the bottom of a jar of homemade ghee on day 30, and I wonder if there were any milk solids left in there.) - slight digestive upset: day 6. Could be from the corn taco I had the night before (yes, I know, day 5 was supposed to be a W30 day, no grains) - or maybe not. The only thing I noticed was increased cravings in the past few days, which may be from the grains (quinoa, white rice) I introduced. I was hoping to gain some insights, but so far, there's very little to be gleaned. I'm a bit frustrated. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  6. Our first day after completing our Whole30 is my husband's birthday. I've managed to convince him to have a wonderful dinner at home (you know - give yourself the gift of health!), but he has asked for two things: beer or wine, and ice cream. I read the reintroduction in It Start with Food and had planned to follow it, except these two requests throw a curveball into the plan. Thoughts on keeping it a Whole30 day and then for dinner adding the alcohol and then having coconut milk ice cream? We'd have to watch the flavors and other mix-ins here, but figured it was better than dairy options. I was thinking I could then do the next two days Whole30 and get back on the regular reintroduction plan. We had such a successful 30 days, I just want to do my best to keep us on a good track! TIA
  7. I did the September Whole30 which was quite an eye opener - so many NSV! Especially my sleep quality has drastically improved, my mood was better, and my energy stayed constant. My psoriasis symptoms slightly improved. I lost 6 lbs which I am happy about. I started reintroduction with a glass red wine and because of that I had a second glass and then I binged chocolate. Quite a learning experience! I went back to Whole30 for three days and then did the reintro with only one glass of wine (I learned something here) which went fine. However, my sleep quality is not as good, my energy fluctuates. I am back to Whole30 since and today is the first day I feel “Whole30-good” again. Now I am wondering if I should extend my Whole30 to 90 days to allow my body more time to heal. I have lost another 3 lbs since and psoriasis symptoms seem to improve gradually. I am ok with cravings; I actually believe I am still in to process of getting used of not having foods that make me binge, like cheese. I am reluctant to introduce other foods because I am afraid to lose all the NSV which are such a tremendous improvement of life quality. On the other side, I worry never to reach “food freedom”. Do you have any advice? Does anyone have a similar experience?

    Fast Track Question

    Hello! I’m on Day 25 of Whole30, and I’m both excited and VERY nervous for reintroduction! If you have no negative effects when reintroducing a food group, can you continue eating it (after your two evaluation days) as you reintroduce the other food groups? For example, if I had no problems after eating legumes, can I continue to have them while testing out non-gluten grains, dairy, etc?
  9. Hi all! I wanted to start a thread about Canadians competing their Whole30 on October 2nd, because the reintroduction period will overlap with our Thanksgiving! I'm completing my 4th Whole30 on October 2; however, this will only be my second proper reintroduction. My first Whole30, I did a by-the-books reintroduction, but by my second and third rounds, I told myself I would do slow roll, which turned into "eat pizza a week after your W30, feel crappy, not know what it was particularly, and just go back to Whole30 eating"... lol, exactly what you're not supposed to do, I know. I am DETERMINED to do a proper reintroduction period this round! I think I might just do dairy on October 3 (butter, yogurt/kefir, milk... no cheese yet though) and then just wait a 3-4 days until my mom's turkey dinner, and test gluten then, since there will definitely be wheat all over that turkey with the stuffing situation. If I'm remembering back to my first reintroduction, as well as the times I happened to test those dairy products properly during the slow roll attempts, those shouldn't cause me too many issues. My strategy to test those first is that they will probably also be in the turkey dinner, so if I test those first, then at the dinner with gluten cross-contamination, I'd have a better idea at least of what was making me feel crummy (because I fully anticipate the gluten to not go well, but who knows... maybe I'll be surprised!) After turkey dinner, I think I will give it a good 5 days of regular W30 eating, and then start with the prescribed 14 day reintroduction on October 13th. What are the other Canadians out there strategizing for the upcoming holiday on reintroduction? Are you just planning on Whole30'ing during family dinner? Extending the Whole30 and not reintroducing until after the holiday? Eating Whole30 up to your turkey dinners, then running wild for one meal, and hopping right back on the W30 afterwards? I'd love to hear what others are thinking!
  10. Hello everybody! I am currently on day 21 of my first Whole30 and I have a few questions about reintroduction. To start off, I know that once I am done with the official part of the program, the rest is in my own hands. But I wanted some opinions/advice from people more experienced at this than I am. I work at a grocery store that contains a popular bakery, a Chinese restaurant, a comfort food restaurant (fried chicken, pulled pork, baked macaroni, etc.), a Starbucks, and a pizza bar. Being around these types of things so frequently in addition to regular groceries has made it very easy for me to notice changes in my attitudes toward food. On day 3, I picked up an extra shift on "demo day", a day when we set up sample stands all over the store. I was in charge of handing out angel food cake. I had never done sampling before so I was hoping at the end of my shift, I would get to take home the leftovers. I was so annoyed when I remembered I couldn't eat that. When I got home that night, I spend a lot of time thinking about the reintroduction phase. Googling my favorite chips, trying to see what I could get away with eating when I reintroduce non-gluten grains, downloading the nutrition info from my favorite burger places so I could figure out what to eat when I reintroduce wheat. But over last weekend, one of my managers was giving out free packs of cookies from our bakery because they had reached their "best by" date, and it was so easy for me to turn them down! Yesterday afternoon was my last major shopping trip before I'm finished with this challenge so I've been thinking about reintroduction again. Maybe I'm being overly optimistic, or maybe I really have that Tiger Blood, but as the days pass, I really don't have a genuine desire for a lot of the things I used to eat. I feel like everything I'm considering eating as I reintroduce each food group, I'm only considering for the sake of completing the reintroduction phase. As someone who used to snack constantly, the main food group I am really eager to reintroduce is dairy. I am honestly missing my omelettes with cheese more than Spicy Nacho Doritos. Now, I'm certain I will eventually go back to eating legumes and grains, but again, I really don't desire those other food groups right now and I don't think I will when I begin reintroduction next week. I know it is discouraged to mix food groups when reintroducing. But say I only reintroduce dairy and keep the rest of my diet Whole30. If it becomes clear I have no problems with dairy, do y'all think I would be able to properly evaluate grains if I have oatmeal made with milk and oats several weeks later? Could I have something with dairy as breakfast one day and then for dinner, swap out coconut aminos in a compliant recipe for soy sauce to evaluate soy? Or when I'm thinking about reintroducing one of the other food groups, should I totally stop consuming dairy for some time and then evaluate each group individually? I am aware of the "slow roll" option. That track, like the fast track, also says to not reintroduce two things at the same time. And I know that for a typical reintroduction, you still should not mix something you've already evaluated with something you're reintroducing. But do these concepts apply if I evaluate dairy and don't introduce another food group until some indefinite point in the future? Thanks for any advice you all may have!

    Legume Side Effects

    What are some of the negative effects to be mindful of when reintroducing legumes? I was careful to not reintroduce too many today, but wondering what to look out for.
  12. 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!
  13. I finished Whole30 a week ago, and I went for a week vacation on Saturday, and though on relax a little bit with my eating habits, so I drank beer, and ate some cheese and a few hours later, a rash appeared on the inside of my forearms, on my belly, on the outside of my leg, and I can't think of anything else but this things I ate/drank after a whole month of clean eating. Is it possible?? Did this happen to anyone out there?? i'll get back to Whole30 on Thursday, but this left me thinking if now I'm allergic to somethings that I wasn't befor and if there will be a "cure" for that thank you
  14. 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.
  15. Just started my FastTrack reintroduction yesterday with non-gluten grains (decided to start with those, since I've had issues with dairy and soy in the past). So after trying them out for a day and not noticing any reaction, after I take my two day break, do I need to stay away from them for the rest of the reintroduction phase? Also, when can I start introducing meats with small amounts of added sugar? What about my favorite stevia/erythritol blend? Do I bring those back in after reintroduction? I am actually leaving on a 2 week trip to see my family (18 hour drive) on day 16 of "reintroduction" so I'm hoping to not have to be too picky when we're traveling. We went camping on Days 22-25 of my Whole30 and it was rather stressful prepping 4 days worth of food for the coolers. ;P
  16. So today is day 31st so I am reintroducing this week my food groups. On Saturday, I am planning on reintroducing non-gluten grains. My question is: Do corn nuts snacks fall into the category of non-gluten grains for reintroduction because it's corn??
  17. So day 28 is finishing up for me which means I have two days left. At the beginning of this whole30 (my first time), I did feel little stomach aches now and again... nothing that seemed too concerning. I figured it was all the vegetables I was now eating. (I was trying a lot of new ones too! -or at least ones I hardly ate before: cabbage, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, beets, kale, swiss chard, etc.. At the beginning of today, I started to feel my throat sore. I cheated and had one honey-lemon drop (didn't help much so I didn't have anymore). Feeling a little feverish, I took some medicine, slept, and pretty much feel the same (but with no fever). I feel terrible/sick! About once a year, I tend to get "sick symptoms" but never actually get sick (I really rarely NEVER get sick). -Usually this happens because I get stressed and my immune system weakens just a tiny bit. 95% of what I've been drinking has been water (a gulp of pineapple or apple juice if a recipe calls for it). My meals are usually some kind of meat/protein with vegetable (cooked in fat: oil or clarified butter). I think during week two, I skipped a few meals because I was just so full! For snacks, I have apples, oranges, or approved larabars. I'm quite concerned about this because my day 30 is so close! I'm determined to go to the end... but I wonder... what about my re-introduction phase? I can't really re-introduce things if I feel sick? I might confuse symptoms! (was it because I am sick, or because I ate the bread?) I almost feel like I spent a month for nothing! D: (I really wanted to do this 98% correct and told myself if I decide to do it next time, that I'll know what other food groups upsets me and take it a little easier for myself) Also, I know it's not day 30 but I weighed/measured myself. I haven't lost weight (or gained) any, but I did loose an inch around my stomach! yay! I'm quite happy about that! I'm honestly not concerned with weight numbers but am very happy about the measurement on my stomach. ^^ Another thing: pretty sure I didn't catch this from anyone as no one around me (that I know of) is sick... and I'm on my 4th day of vacation, so I've been kinda isolated... Sorry for the long post/Thank you for those who read the whole thing!
  18. So I'm a few days into my reintroduction and I'm thinking how successful my Whole 30 was, 4 lbs, 1 inch off my waist and an overall happy gut! I'm really only reintroducing a few things like oatmeal, sweetened creamer in my coffee and the occasional sweet treat (macaroons, yum!) so I'm wondering if by bringing these things back, am I making my body stop using its fat as fuel? Will it burn those cards instead thereby reducing my weight loss? I read that is what happens on Whole30, your body changes how it runs, so I'm worried that by reintroducing certain foods, it will stop burning fat in that way. Does anyone know the science around this? Is there a certain sugar/carb ratio to stay under to keep your body burning its fat for fuel?
  19. So I looked around on the forum and couldn't find anything like this (maybe I just didn't know what to search for, specifically) So I'm going to post my plan. I hope this helps someone else who's in the same position as me. I finished my very first Whole30 YESTERDAY! I had an amazing time with this. It wasn't too difficult and I really got a lot out of it. I'm sleeping more soundly, falling asleep faster, and waking up easier (often before my alarm even goes off). My skin has really cleared up. The migraines that I had prescription medication for have completely disappeared. My energy is pretty high despite the fact that I've completely cut out caffeine (Coca Cola was my caffeine of choice, but i would also drink tea and coffee). I don't know about my athletic performance because I gave my body a break from intense activity while I was adjusting to the new lifestyle. When it comes to physical changes, though I know that's not the goal; I did experience some. I lost 4.2 lbs, 1.4% body fat, and a total of 6 inches around my body. Overall this has been a wonderful experience and I'm totally going to keep this a part of my life and maybe even get my husband to try it out! So I'm finally at the reintroduction stage and I'm trying to get as much out of it as possible. I'm super interested in what specific foods could give me problems, rather than just the food groups. Therefore, I've made a SUPER SLOW ROLL SCHEDULE that I'm going to follow. If I follow this, it will take me another 81 days (minimum: assuming no category REALLY messes me up for more than 2 days) to finish my reintroduction. During this time I will pick a new food (that I previously ate/wouldn't mind eating again if possible) every third day to try. I will eat that food in a lot of different forms and styles throughout the day (unless the morning reintroduction immediately ruins me), while eating everything else Whole30 compliant. Then I'll go back to Whole30 for the next two days/however long it takes for negative symptoms to clear up. I followed the basic template of: 1. Legumes, 2. Gluten-free grains, 3. Dairy (split into lactose free and normal), 4. Gluten-containing grains, 5. Alcohol SUPER SLOW ROLL SCHEDULE 1. Black Beans 2. Peanut Butter 3. Soy: Edamame, Miso Soup, Soy Milk 4. Chickpeas 5. Lima Beans 6. Green Peas 7. Corn: Corn Kernels, corn tortilla chips, popcorn, Creamed Corn 8. White Rice 9. Brown Rice 10. Grits 11. Gluten-free Oats 12. Lactaid Milk 13. Skim Milk 14. Halo Top Ice Cream 15. Normal Ice Cream 16. Hard Cheese: Cheddar, Swiss, Parmesan 17. Soft Cheese 18. Greek Yogurt 19. Whipping Cream 20. Whole Wheat Bread in various forms 21. Whole Wheat Pasta 22. Biscuits 23. Vodka 24. Whiskey 25. Rum 26. Ciders 27. Wine Before I did the Whole30, I had already cut out almost all dairy (except in baking/ The Cheesecake Factory Strawberry Shortcake- OMGEEE). I drank MAYBE once every couple of months, and then it would be just one drink. And I wasn't a huge grain person except for Grits and breakfast breads. I'm aware that none of the things in my reintroduction list are things that I HAVE to have again. But they are foods that I think could come up naturally in my life, and I want to be able to make the most educated decision possible about if that food will actually be worth it. Therefore, I will introduce them all. Knowledge is power, after all. I may also extend a bit longer and try out different combinations of these foods to see if that affects me more than just the individual food. For example- what would a bowl of cereal with gluten and dairy, do to me? Does that still happen if I use almond milk, or Lactaid Milk? And then maybe try out different desserts that have a few of the inflammatory ingredients in them. I know this may seem excessive or too intense. But this would really satisfy the math/science minded + organizational part of my brain. I have no doubt that I'll do another Whole30 again one day. I actually really look forward to it. I'm welcome to any suggestions/comments. But please keep them constructive- and don't try to talk me out of doing it this way. I'm already going to do it. But if you can think of a way to make it better organized, or if you have done something similar to what I'm about to try to do- I'd love to hear about your experience!
  20. So on day 31 there is a restaurant I'm going to that serves homemade fries. They are made in soybean oil and their chicken is cooked in a combination of oils including corn oil. I was wondering what kind of food group am I reintroducing here? Is it legumes? If I'm eating fries, does that mean I can eat any kind of fries? (say if I had hash browns or heated up some frozen fries for lunch or fast food fries, etc..)
  21. Today is day one of my reintroduction and I am SO excited! However this morning I was hit with a question... I am unsure how to reintroduce my protein powders. Before my Whole30 I used to drink 1-2 servings every day. (only as a meal replacement or immediate post-workout) I have two different protein powders (both whey protein), one is Isagenix brand strawberry cream, and the other is Muscle Sport brand lean whey revolution chocolate flavor- my favorite (also has added fat burner). Here are the fist few ingredients of each protein powder even though the list is way longer... Isagenix strawberry cream: whey protein concentrate (undenatured), milk protein concentrate (undenatured), low heat nonfat dry milk, isomaltooligosaccharide powder, fructose, sunflower oil powder, olive oil powder, tapioca maltodextrin, flax seed powder, xanthan gum, triglyceride oil powder Muscle Sport lean whey revolution chocolate: fibersol 2, maltodextrin, tauric acid, glycocarn, l-carnatine tartrate, lecithin, whey protein isolate, hydrolyzed whey protein peptides, cocoa, cellulose gum, xanthan gum, carrageenan gum, lactase, bromelein, sucralose I was wondering your thoughts on these (are they "healthy" or are there harmful chemicals in them compared to other protein powders? etc.) How and when would you recommend re-introducing them? (In their own re-intro category, in the dairy re-intro category, etc.) Thank you!

    Reintroducing Legumes

    I began whole 30, not for weight loss, but rather because of stomach pain... Before whole 30, I would eat a homemade Ham & Bean soup with no pain... Yesterday, I started reintroducing legumes and had some of said soup... However, by the end of the evening, I wound up with such pain in my stomach and I felt so sick! The only difference to the recipe -- I used dried beans instead of canned. Even though the beans were soaked overnight, and were cooking for hours and hours, the beans never really softened. Could this be the reason I had the stomach pain? Perhaps my stomach couldn't digest the beans because they were not soft enough??? Any thoughts? Thanks in advance! ~ Sheri
  23. Hi Whole30 friends! I took 9 total days to reintroduce several different legumes (peanuts, soy, black beans) and had NO problems. I have now started reintroducing non-gluten grains. I ate white rice yesterday. So today is a clean eating day and there is a soup in the cafe I want to try...lemon ginger split-pea soup. All the ingredients are compliant, obviously the split peas are a legume. So my question is two fold - first, if I had no trouble with the three legumes I already reintroduced, do I really need a separate day for split peas or is it fair to assume all legumes are fine? and second...how important is it to eat 100% whole30 clean between reintroduction days? Is it okay to eat whole30 clean plus foods that you have found to be not a problem for you?
  24. Hi everyone, It looks like my reintroduction is going to coincide with my period, or at least with pms... Yikes. Would you advice against doing the reintroduction during my period? If I feel terrible, I may not be able to tell whether it's from pms or from the reintroduced food. Then again, I'm not sure I can keep going with W30 for much longer than 30 days, either, as it isn't really making me feel great.
  25. I know, I know... The official ISWF position seems to be "Don't" but for those of us that still want to occasionally imbibe, the book is sorely lacking on how and when to reintroduce alcohol. Day 1 is dairy. Day 4 is gluten grains. Day 7 is non-gluten grains. Day 10 is legumes. Should I sprinkle alcohol in there somewhere? Wait until the end, do it first, or what? Right now, I'm thinking I might reintroduce alcohol first so I can understand the effects of that before reintroducing anything else. Thoughts on this?
