Laura jay's reintro journey


Recommended Posts

Reintroduction of foods

My Day 1 A little nervous but plan to go back to whole 30 once I reintroduce…

Evaluate peanut butter or black beans

Pay attention to how you feel to see if and how you incorporate them back to your diet.

Then go back to whole 30 for 2 days


Started reintro with pb.  Hmmmm I don’t miss peanut butter, I think I actually like almond butter more. So far mid-morning and no issues that I can tell. Ok maybe spoke too soon, a little indigestion? Maybe it will take a second reintro after next whole 30 to tell for sure.   Spin class tonight since hubby has a late meeting. Burned 500 in spin!

Breakfast: leftover ribeye, 1/2 a banana with peanut butter (that is it- had an internet outage and needed to get 

                   somewhere I could get connectivity so I could work!

Snack (from my computer bag a pack of southwest peanuts

Lunch late due to being out because of lack of connectivity.. skinny pork chop, sweet potato, apple onion hash

Snack cherry larabar

Dinner late  leftover skinny chop raw veggies and ½ an avocado

Reintro Day 2 

Woke up sinusy. Spring in the south (Atlanta) but more drainage than I should have since I have only been outside to and from my car. Also mid-morning some gi  issues. Sleep is  not improving, I think a trip to dr in order plus time for yearly physical.  Interested to see cholesterol.

Breakfast scrambled eggs, leftover sweet potato apple hash, ½ avocado

Lunch leftover skinny chop, Brussel sprouts, natural apple sauce

Dinner  burger, raw veggies and green beans leftover home fries and 1/3 avocado

Reintro Days 2-5


Reintro Day 3

Finally figured out that the headache is a sinus headache from all of the pollen!.  Took Claritin d and 2 advil for headache, hopefully will feel better tomorrow

Breakfast 2 eggs and a banana

Lunch not hungry (I know I know I should eat anyway but Claritin d messes my appetite up)  apple and almond butter

Dinner salmon, roasted veggies and baked home made fries


Reintro day 4  Evaluate dairy while keeping the rest of your diet whole 30 compliant have plain yogurt in the morning or add cream to your coffee, have cheese on your salad use butter or sour cream on your potato

Very interesting….the yogurt made my stomach gurgel just a little.  The cheese gave me instant gas and a tummy ache, the gelato tasted way too sweet, and also made me sinusy/ phlegmy. Its interesting how your loves turn into likes when they mistreat you J (cheese).

530 calories TORCHED in spin class

Then go back to whole 30 for 2 days

Breakfast pre spin class   oikos triple 0 berry yogurt

Lunch burger and watermelon (at a lunch at the gym, ths was the only compliant food)

Snack  after lunch  tried sevetla types of cheddar

Dinner  mahi and Brussel sprouts  gelato for desserrt



Reintro Day 5

Hiking up and down Kennesaw 90 minutes and 375 calories. Stomach still hurts just a little so obviously learned a great deal yesterday.  Maybe after my next whole 30 will reintroduce a single source of calcium (not cheddar) maybe just yogurt, or just goat cheese to see if all have the same effect or if cheddar is the worst offender (which I think it is since it happened almost immediately ), oh how I used to love my cheese…

Pre  hike snack banana with almond butter

Breakfast omlete with peppers and tomatoes and potatoes

Lunch slept!  (I think all of the insomnia caught up with me

Snack  raisons and cashews

Dinner chilli and avocado slices

Sorry, but nobody is going to weigh the same every day - consider things like salt intake, water retention, alcohol consumption, time of the month etc.

This is one of the main reasons we encourage people to break up with the scale - permanently.

Right now, instead of focusing on your reintroductions you're probably trying to figure out what you should cut back on to lose that .6 of a kilo ;) 

Don't do it!!  :ph34r:
