jessica301 Posted October 28, 2014 Share Posted October 28, 2014 I decided to extend my Whole30 by two weeks. The primary reason was because I thought I was pmsing during my last few days of Whole30. I did not want to disrupt my system by evaluating eliminated foods that may have triggered a binge or unpleasant symptoms. However, it turns out that I skipped my entire cycle. I went to the doctor and he said it was a possibility that the elimination diet had something to do with it. That said, I decided it was time to evaluate as I now know I have at least a couple of weeks before it *should* start -- if it decides to, anyway. My first re-introduced food is dairy. Breakfast - 2 scrambled eggs in evoo, beets with pumpkin seeds, roasted butternut squash; coffee with half and half. I gave up coffee for 44 days, and I used to drink at least four cups a day, usually three in the morning (!). Immediately after I started drinking the coffee I felt like I had to go to the bathroom. I know this was a symptom of the coffee, not the cream. I did feel *slightly* hungrier than usual an hour later, but then that feeling went away and I leveled off. Lunch - Cobb salad (Greens, tomatoes, hard boiled egg, avocado, bacon, blue cheese, grilled chicken and a lemon dijon dressing). I did notice a slight bloat and feeling of uncomfort in my stomach. Nothing *too* terrible, but certainly noticeable. Dinner - TBD. Likely will have leftovers of a compliant meal. Since ice cream was one of the suggestions for dairy, I may treat myself to a scoop at a delicious creamery in my neighborhood after my compliant dinner, but I may not. It depends how my stomach feels then. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
