  1. 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?
  2. Come along for the Lent whole 30 reintroduction starting this Easter 2019. I am determined to have a very pure reintroduction to learn what my body can really handle to strive towards BFF! I am not reintroducing alcohol this time to keep my Sugar Dragon calm.
  3. Hello! I'm on day 20 and I'm psyched for my reintroduction stage. I'm curious, why would I have to go Whole30 every two days if the new food group doesn't give me any bad reactions? For example, lets say I add in gluten grains and I get no bad reactions. Am I good to eat gluten from now on?
  4. 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
  5. I finished my Whole30 R2 on Feb. 12th. I lost 5 pounds and felt great BUT totally love the tiger blood I felt being so clean. I gradually added back sugar (Raw sugar and added sugar in food) . Then 2 days reset. Then I added some gluten in the form of crackers and bread. I have also added back alcohol in the form of Potato Vodka. I started out with a Bloody Mary then settled in on a potato based Vodka Tonic. All was going well. I added back some dairy in the form of ice cream. All is still going well. Then I added back artificial sweetners in my coffee, in my sparkling water, in my applesauce and then the lower GI went crazy! My eating has settled into a routine and I am just fine WITHOUT too many grains, dairy, and legumes. I enjoy one of my 'Tater tonics' on Friday's and Saturday's but during the week I stick pretty close to the Whole30. Breakfasts are eggs and veggies and fruit. Lunch is either some form of a salad or soup and a fruit. Dinner is usually a protein, a veggie and a fruit. Over the last month I have felt great and motivated. Eating is easier than it has ever been with no guilt. I have lost 2 more pounds over the last month in spite of a few days when i went totally out of control with my grandkids. I immediately did a reset for 7 days and the bloated and foggy feeling went away with the tiger blood coming back. I am changing a couple of attitudes - increasing activity and just watching my eating. My weight loss expectations are only a half pound a week. I have 9 more pounds to go so I am in no hurry. I will come back to my blog as time goes by.
  6. 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?
  7. As I understand it, I am supposed to reintroduce one food group at a time by eating it for one day, and then go back on the regular whole30 diet for two days before introducing another food. My questions are: 1. Once I reintroduce a food can I continue to eat it as I reintroduce others? 2. If I don’t have a reaction, can I reintroduce another food without waiting the 2 days? 3. Why isn’t there a reintroduction for food preservatives and sugar?
  8. Getting close to my 30 days! and thinking ahead for when I decide to implement the reintroduction of certain foods. I've been using Nutpods for my coffee creamer but find them a bit expensive. (I tried drinking my coffee black) After doing some research on coconut milk, I found all the chilled was sweetened and all the carton unsweetened coconut milk I could find had collogeanan. (I tried the canned but couldn't get it to mix well) My question is: if I'm going to use one or the other, would it be better to use unsweetened coconut milk in the carton or dairy milk? (Dairy has never bothered me as far as I know and I don't use much)
  9. I am on Day 30. I'm doing fine with the eating and have noticed some positive changes. Good amount of energy, sleeping well, and the migraines I had been having for a couple months have gone away. Score! But, over the last 2 weeks I've developed consistent acid reflux. I have a burning feeling in my upper abdomen the majority of the day....every.day. It's not debilitating, but it is uncomfortable and I've never dealt with acid reflux or this burning sensation before. What gives? Giving my typical meals below: Breakfast - always either 3 eggs and 2 pieces of bacon (sometimes w/ 1/2 avocado) OR a hash with sweet potatoes, veggies, and compliant sausage/chorizo Lunch - Dinner leftovers or a salad with chicken/steak and homemade ranch Dinner - Grilled protein (chicken, steak, fish) with salad and roasted vegetables. Sometimes roasted potatoes thrown in. I mix things up occassionally and will do something like a stir fry or meatballs for dinner. But the pattern of food has been consistent for 30 days now. Any tips?? I'm scared to start reintroducing other foods when some the "good foods" i'm eating now are potentially the cause of this issue.
  10. Hi- I am finishing up my Whole30 next week, I am so excited to start the reintroduction and find my food freedom. I am planning on doing a modified short/long approach. Basically there are a few food groups I want to split up to get more specifics on. I have already been diagnosed with gluten intolerance so I'm not reintroducing gluten. My plan is to do something sort of like this: Legumes (wait 2 days) Soy (wait 2 days) Non gluten grains excluding corn (wait 2 days) Corn (Wait 2 days) Dairy I'm splitting into 2 days because I Want to evaluate Goat's milk separately Couple questions: Does this look ok? Kind of in the middle, I have an event and I would really like to just have a meal with some wine - I would be having both dairy and non gluten grains during that meal- would it be ok to have the meal wait two days and then continue the reintro process? Thank you in advance!
  11. Quick question about reintroduction- I’m starting with legumes and got a packet of Rx honey cinnamon peanut butter and a packet of the Justin’s peanut butter - obviously the Rx has honey added and I’m wondering if for reintroduction if I should stick to the plain one - thank you for your advice in advance!
  12. Ok, so tomorrow is day 30, and for the past week or so, I have had some digestive issues while following whole30. I cannot figure out what is causing this because I am eating mainly the same exact foods I was eating during the first couple weeks (when I felt great). Any ideas on what could be the cause? I'm nervous to reintroduce anything before I figure out what is causing my current issues. Thanks for any input!
  13. Not sure if I should post this here or in reintroduction... I'm coming up on the end of my Whole30 and trying to map out my dairy reintro. Since this is my second go, I'm skipping reintroducing legumes and GF grains, and doing a dairy break down- lactose free, then grassfed, then conventional. Please send ideas for dairy heavy meals.

    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?
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. 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!
  18. 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.
  19. 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

    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?
  21. 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!
  22. 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.
  24. 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!
  25. 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
