Reintroduction Diary - April 1st (from AIP)


Recommended Posts

I just completed a W30 (actually 31) in March, which I did following AIP (Ballantyne's protocol)

 

I'll record my reintroductions here - I'm reintroducing a food every 5 days (assuming no negative reactions) 

 

I scoured the internet to come up with my plan for reintroducing food, here's what I took away :

 
- 1/2 tsp, wait 15 min
- 1-2 tsp, wait a few hours
- normal sized portion that food at night / wait 72 hours 
- 1 food every 5 days
- if you have a violent reaction, wait at least 2 weeks (return to baseline status)
 
Since I'm coming from AIP most of what I'm reintroducing is allowed on regular Whole30.
 
But I'm skipping ghee and going straight to butter, because I have paleo-heaven butter available (raw milk, small-batch, grass-fed, cultured butter).  
 
My tentative schedule :
April 1 raw butter
April 6 black pepper
April 11 mustard
April 16 sesame seed oil
April 21 green beans
April 26 macadamia nut oil
May 1 egg yolk
 
(The order of some of this might change, but not the egg yolk, I'm doing 2 months egg-free)
 
The symptoms I'll look at : 
-mood
-energy
-mental clarity
- sleep
- strong food cravings
- headache/dizziness
- aches & pains
- digestive function
- skin
 
Today, I'm trying the butter.  Had a small amount at breakfast, and just under a teaspoon at lunch.  Will have a generous portion on tonight's dinner, then back to normal for a few days.
