One of the biggest changes I made after my first whole30 4 years ago was quitting my addiction to flavored sugar laden coffee creamers. Don’t get me wrong, I still occasionally treat myself. Life is too short not to, right?! But now my go to for coffee creamer when I’m not doing Whole30 is half and half or whole milk. No thank you hidden sugars, see ya later! What’s the biggest change you’ve noticed over this Whole30 journey?
Many of you have asked me for advice about Whole30 reintroduction to different foods and food groups that you eliminated. I sat down with a dietitian last year to ask her all these questions and more on a Facebook live so I wanted to share that video below as a resource.
We really got into the meat of the whole30 reintroduction at about minute 5 if you want to start there!
Here are some key takeaways for your Whole30 reintroduction:
- Notice trigger foods.
- What makes you feel bad? Symptoms can include upset stomach, foggyness in your brain/head, overly tired, issues with your GI tract…to name a few.
- Typically it takes 4-8 hours for nutrients to be digested so you can space out foods you reintroduce by 1-3 days depending on how you are feeling about it and how strictly you want to be.
- Journal your foods and how you feel as you reintroduce them as this may help you keep better track of what is causing symptoms.
