MrsFleming Posted July 23, 2014 Share Posted July 23, 2014 My husband and I recently completed the whole 30 and found the challenge enjoyable and eye-opening, all the things I thought I couldn’t live without I actually could pretty easily, we both lost a few pounds and felt pretty amazing. I continued eating whole 30 for a few weeks after re-introducing fat free milk occasional which sometimes made me feel a bit queasy and brown rice which mad me bloated so stopped with that. I had a night out and drank a few vodka soda’s over the course of the evening and had no noticeable reaction to it. Fast forward a couple of weeks and I had 2 weekends where I went off track with a few different food groups and felt horrible as a result, I have had on and off of the past 2 weeks horrible stomach cramps which have had me lay on the sofa in a lot of discomfort, I have had both constipation and diarrhea and feel pretty awful. I lack energy and feel moody and not on ‘form’. I have read through the forums and realize this is down to me not reintroducing properly and obviously I have no way of telling which food groups set me off as, I am now trying to eat compliantly for the next week and then will start to do a systematic re-intro. My question is should it really take 3-4 days of feeling this bad after a weekend blow out or is something not right? I have been eating only compliant foods in between these weekends and still felt bad. I was really happy with the way I felt whilst doing the whole 30 but now I am very disheartened by how the effects of one ‘normal’ weekend of drinking, pizza and ice cream has on me. Whist doing the Whole 30 I planned to stick to the food plan pretty much and read the book properly and thought I could go ‘off track’ track here and there on special occasions but now feel so bad I almost regret doing this in the first place, I have never reacted to food like this before and feel like I am now trapped into this plan and won’t ever get my stomach back to the way it was before?
