When you stop eating things (like wheat for example) your body down regulates certain digestive enzymes. This causes digestive stress when you suddenly reintroduce it.

Using the Whole30 ideology...remove the food for 30 days then bring back in. You have to keep your diet very strict with this to determine that the item removed/added is the actual offender. Good luck!
