emi Posted April 27, 2014 Share Posted April 27, 2014 It really was accidental! When I informed the server of the food groups I can't eat, I forgot to include legumes (in fact I had never done so before), and when she pointed out the one dish I could have that was everything-allergy-free, I said okay without thinking too much about it (my bad!). I got a casserole type of dish containing an egg in a ton of tomato sauce with some veggies. Only after I ate some I noticed that there were lima beans in it, and I definitely ate about 10-15 beans. I didn't notice them for a while because they were covered by red sauce. It never occurred to me to look out for beans because I never ever eat any and it just never crossed my mind, I rather forgot they exist. I'm on day 13, and I'm definitely not starting over. I'm going on vacation abroad one month after my whole 30, and I need to have the outcome of my reintroductions settled before then. I'm thinking about 3 weeks for my reintroductions because I want to add things back slowly and specifically. So that gives me maximum of a week to extend the plan. I'm thinking that I will decide when I'm near the end, if I'm feeling good enough, I might stop there, but if I feel like I should go a bit more, I'll do a few more days. I still don't feel better in any way, I'm pretty bloated, have digestion and energy issues, but there are other complications (I caught a cold at the beginning of my whole30, some ongoing menstrual problems, probably too much cauliflower/broccoli was causing issues) so no way to know where to lay the blame for that. My question is, how much effect could ~10 beans have? Is there anything I should watch out for if I don't add any extra days? Also, if I don't add extra days, do you think I could make up for it by reintroducing legumes last and keeping them off my diet in the meanwhile?
