GlennR Posted May 3, 2014 Share Posted May 3, 2014 So if we're much better after 30 days -- toxins flushed out, inflammations starting to subside, sugar cravings tamed -- does this mean we are, in a way, disabled for, or made more vulnerable to, the regular standard diet? I keep reading about people reacting much more strongly to foods when they are reintroduced than they did pre-Whole30. I remember reading the plaintive post of someone who complained that now he can't even enjoy an occasional cheeseburger the way he used to. If feels like some sort of "immunity" or adaptation is lost after a Whole30. If you can stay on Whole30 forever after, that wouldn't be a problem. But what if there are situations where you have to switch back for an extended period of time? I'm mindful that the next time I take a long trip -- say, back home to the Philippines -- I very much doubt I will be able to eat compliant or even Paleo most of the time. Social pressures, the difficulty of cooking my own meals, and other obstacles would make it very difficult. But I'm imagining being continuously sick or reacting adversely to things that didn't use to faze me -- and during a vacation! -- because unhealthy as they were I was used to them, and I'm not liking that scenario and wondering how to work around it.
