Cassie Stanton Posted October 16, 2012 Share Posted October 16, 2012 I successfully completed my Whole 30 and continued with staying whole 30 because I felt so great. However, with the holidays around the corner I wanted to follow the reintroduction schedule so that I could be more knowledgable about how specific foods affect me. Three days ago I added dairy back in per the recommendation and felt horrible...major headache, mucus buildup, and was really bloated the next day. The puzzling thing is that since doing that I have been having cravings for all things sugar, worse than during the actual Whole 30....like I really want candy corn, and I don't even like candy corn!!! On the day of reintroduction I noticed that after eating the dairy (whole cream) I found I wanted cake and cookies and bread, but had not wanted them at all up to that point. I'm not sure if my "mind" just felt it was off the diet so its a free for all or if the dairy actually caused that reaction. I haven't given in to said cravings but am finding it difficult to get my body back in balance. Is this a normal reaction during the reintroduction period? I haven't reintroduced any other foods at this point because I'm afraid that the cravings for sugar will be worse. Any advice?? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
