Lethargy - reintroduction culprit?


Recommended Posts

I started my reintroduction over the last ten days after a full Whole30.

i already suspected before the program that dairy was an issue for me. First thing I introduced was a protein snack I used to love which had whey powder in it - which gave me stomach cramps within an hour. A small ice cream lolly two days later did exactly the same thing, plus nausea. I'm planning on avoiding this permanently.

Over the weekend I introduced more sugar - a few squares of dark chocolate, home made fruit ice lollies with a teaspoon of maple syrup and some home made dairy free mousse with maple syrup. I had no obviously intolerant reactions. I also had some good wine which made me feel more affected than I used to but didn't cause any other real reactions.

This week I tried a small bit of home made granary bread one day, nothing obvious but I just didn't enjoy it that much. I also tried peas and peanuts, both of which made me bloated and uncomfortable.

so it seems the digestive symptoms are pretty clear/quick to show but my second question is this - I have a cold, but have noticed I feel really tired also, more than I have since week 1 of the program. Do you think this is the cold, a reaction to the foods that didn't suit me(legumes/dairy) or a blood sugar reaction? I thought I was being quite careful with my reintro but I am now not sure if this is something I should be concerned with. I don't want to freak out but also don't want to go back to feeling like rubbish! Any advice appreciated :(

I don't know how to distinguish between tiredness from a cold and the blah feeling foods that disagree with you might produce. You probably need to do more reintroduction testing after you no longer have a cold.
