8. Timeline

When you're doing Whole30, it can be a bit of a rollercoaster.

Here's an image that sums up how you will feel throughout the duration of the programme.

You'll either start off thinking it's no big deal, or wonder what the hell you're doing. ;0)

The hangover period is where you feel a bit of sugar withdrawal (the hangover).

Kill all things is where you're feeling a bit hangry.

Next you just want to sleep.

Then you might notice that your trousers actually feel tighter, not looser. (Be stronger than the struggle).

Days 10 and 11 are the hardest days for sticking to it.

Next you'll find yourself dreaming about junk food.

Tiger blood is where you feel that you have amazing energy and can conquer the world.

You'll feel tempted to hop on the scales to check your weight, but resist.

On day 28 you'll maybe try and justify cutting the programme short and just doing the 28 days. Tough it out for a little longer.

When you make it to 30 days, give yourself a good pat on the back, but be sure to stick with it for the highly valuable 10 day reintroduction phase. (More on this later).

9. After 30 days - The Reintroduction Phase - How To Do It Right

First of all, congratulations to you.

You've done amazingly well in completing your Whole30 Anti-inflammatory nutrition plan.

Now it's going to be time to start to reintroduce some foods that you love, and learn some extremely valuable lessons about how these foods affect you.

I've put together full instructions for you on how to reintroduce food types in a logical sequence, to see how your body reacts.

You can either follow Whole30's specific sequence (in this document) or you can do them in any sequence that you like, though I think their sequence makes great sense (by first reintroducing the foods least likely to cause an inflammatory response in your body, followed by ones that are more likely to cause you issues).
