Congratulations! You made it through your 30 days!
The Reintroduction period is a very important part of the Whole30 program. Once you have eliminated non-compliant foods for 30 days, you will be able to tell exactly how they impact your body when you reintroduce them properly. We recommend using calendar meal planning for your Whole30 reintroduction.
If you are using the mobile app you can follow the steps below. Website users click here to learn how to set up your Whole30 reintroduction.
Select the Whole30 reintroduction
- Click the gear icon (this is where you access your settings)
- Select Whole30 Meal Plan
- Click Reintroduction
- Click on Configure my Whole30 Reintroduction
Set up your Whole30 reintroduction
- Select your 10 day Fast Track reintroduction start date using the calendar icon
- If you are setting up a reintroduction for Plant-Based Whole30, you will need to select either Schedule 1 or Schedule 2
- Schedule 1 allows you to reintroduce foods, but does not reintroduce animal products
- Schedule 2 allows you to reintroduce foods, including animal products
- If you are not setting up a Plant-Based Whole30 reintroduction, you will not see the schedule options
- Click Continue
- Review the order that you want the foods reintroduced
- A suggested schedule for reintroduction is preloaded for you based on Whole30 recommendations, but you can adjust the schedule if needed.
- The reintroduction foods will be added to your plan at the selected intervals
- Enter any additional food reintroductions you may want
- Click Continue
- Select Update my plan to create a new plan with your reintroductions
Pro tip: It is suggested that you eat the food that is being reintroduced during each meal on the day it is reintroduced. This will ensure that you are getting enough to tell how it affects you. The meal planner will automatically schedule recipes for you that include the reintroduced food. If you find that one of the meals does not include the reintroduced food, or if you would like to schedule a different recipe, please follow the steps in Replace a suggested meal, below.
