Whipple Posted April 4, 2013 Share Posted April 4, 2013 I'm on day 25 of my first Whole30, so I figured it was time to read the section of the book on reintroduction. First of all, I'm glad dairy was the first food group listed to reintroduce I really haven't felt any change in the gut, and that's the most common bad side effect of dairy, from what I understand. So if I reintroduce dairy on day 1, the book says to have maybe a yogurt in the morning, some cheese in the afternoon, and ice cream that night. So we do that on day 1, but then go back to Whole30 for days 2-3 before adding back the next food group? If we have no side-effects, do we still keep that out of our diet during the remainder of the reintroduction phase? Also, I keep thinking that it seems we ought to reintroduce far more slowly, one item at a time as opposed to a whole group at a time. As a mom, I'm thinking of how we introduce foods to a baby--one item at a time. So for dairy, it kind of makes more sense to me to reintroduce yogurt or milk kefir on day 1, wait 2-3 days, and if nothing bad happens, try that again and add maybe cheese. And keep adding different kinds of dairy, with raw milk being the last. Maybe it doesn't matter so much with the dairy group, but it makes more sense to do it that way especially for the grains--try one grain at a time. But maybe it's that there's not enough significant difference between the different items in those food groups. Also, sugars were not on the list for reintroducing. But ice cream has sugar, and that was list on day 1. So how does that work? It's ok to have it in small quantities as we reintroduce other things?
