GF grain reintro questions

Recommended Posts

I’ve done some googling and looking within the forum, sorry if this has been covered but I couldn’t find it.

I have done the legumes I want to reintroduce, some dairy, and am now onto GF grains. I haven’t noticed poor digestion or sleep (corn tortillas with dinner, quinoa with breakfast and lunch) but I have noticed a real decrease in my appetite and desire for veggies with both corn and quinoa. 

Last night I couldn’t finish my veg at dinner. It was a struggle to eat to the small end of the template at breakfast.  Then I couldn’t finish my lunch. This is not an issue I had on the actual whole30. Is this typical? I get that grains could be pushing veg off my plate and causing that feeling of being “done” eating. It just seems particularly bad. And I like the veg I’m trying to eat!

I'm thinking maybe they are not digesting well and you are feeling bloated which decreases a hunger feeling. Go back to Whole30 until you're feeling proper again and then try again and you'll have your answer.

Interesting! I had bad bloating with hummus within 1/2 hour of eating (like my pants were uncomfortably tight in no time) and had an bad overly stuffed feeling, but I haven’t noticed that with the corn or quinoa. In any case, I don’t like the loss of appetite or the grains taking up tummy space meant for my spinach and cauliflower, so I’ll wait until I feel better to try out gluten.  Thank you!
