LizWhole30 Posted January 4, 2017 Share Posted January 4, 2017 I am an adult with sensory processing disorder attempting the Whole30. On day 3 and so far I have stuck to approved foods but it fully followed the guidelines, mainly because eating vegetables is so very hard for me. I can basically only tolerate broccoli with cheese on it, and now with no cheese I gag while eating. I tried some cauliflower rice last night which I was able to stomach mixed with salmon when it was the only other vegetable on my plate, but last night trying to eat that after already being triggered by the broccoli I started gagging excessively and threw up. I was able to stomach a small amount of cut up spinach leaves in a beef bowl, that was a victory. Is there anyone else in here who has SPD and has been successful? I am hoping whole30 will change my palate just enough to allow me to enjoy a few more veggies without gagging and vomiting. I have done therapy since I was a kid, which did allow me to enjoy more foods besides chicken fingers and French fries, but chewing will be a lifelong problem for me that I need to learn how to live with and still live healthy. I don't want to be overweight and I want to set a good example for my daughter, however gagging at the table wasn't a good example, so I think I will probably eat alone until I can nail down what meals I can enjoy with my family and not gag. Any tips or advice would be welcome! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
