kelly311 Posted February 17, 2014 Share Posted February 17, 2014 I'm just wondering if anyone has completed all their reintroductions with no digestive symptoms (no cramping, no diarrhea, no gas, no nausea, no upset stomach). So far I have reintroduced dairy and non-gluten grains. I am halfway through my gluten grain reintro day. I'm not planning on reintroducing legumes because I don't really miss them. I have to say, I was expecting some kind of reaction to dairy, but I really didn't have much. I had yogurt with breakfast and a slice of cheese with my lunch. My stomach was a bit rumbly after dinner, and again after I ate some ice cream a bit later for dessert, but it was extremely mild and lasted no longer than a couple minutes. (I also ate out at a restaurant for dinner and although what I ordered was W30 compliant, I am second guessing if perhaps something snuck in there and therefore I think I'm going to do a second round of reintroducing dairy). The only other noticeable difference was extreme fatigue the next day. On my non-gluten grain day, I had a slice of gluten-free bread with breakfast, a handful of corn tortilla chips with my lunch, and white rice with sushi for dinner. Again, stomach-wise, I felt fine throughout the day. My stomach was making a few gurgly noises after dinner but wasn't bothering me. I should mention that this also happened to be Valentine's Day, and I did indulge in some gluten-free and dairy-free german chocolate cake from the local vegan/vegetarian restaurant and I will say, after eating that (which was about 45 minutes after dinner), I felt like I had a lead ball in my belly. But I'm thinking I just overdid it with the cake/sugar? And now so far on my gluten-grain day, I had a muffin with breakfast and two slices of whole wheat bread with lunch. So far, no stomach upset. I'll pay attention to how I feel throughout the day, and the next two days, in terms of energy, mood, etc. I'm just wondering if anyone else felt a lack of significant symptoms after doing their reintroductions. I know that from reading It Starts With Food that even though I'm not experiencing major stomach upset, I understand why these types of foods are not good for me and I'll be taking that into consideration moving forward, and will continue to refrain from these types of food as much as possible. Not to make this the longest post in history, but I figure I should mention the reason I tried the W30 is because I've always had digestion issues since I was a kid (I'm now 32) - never officially diagnosed with anything like IBS or something else, but lately I would be either constipated or have diarrhea, with no real stable digestion. While doing the W30 my digestion issues were definitely relieved. I was also looking to sleep better (which I am!!) and have more energy. Finally, I have Hashimoto's (underactive thyroid) and I wanted to see if this impacted my thyroid levels. Any thoughts or experiences shared by others are appreciated :-) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
