You might have heard of this new trend from your friends or family called the Whole30 program. It’s not a surprise as it has led thousands of people to weight loss, improved quality of life, and healthier relationships with food.
The goal of Whole30 is to gain awareness of how certain foods make you feel, and then carrying that awareness forward to use your experience to change the way you eat for the rest of your life. The Whole30 program consists of a 30-day nutritional challenge that focuses on eating a Paleo based diet. It is a nutritional plan that focuses on eating meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruit, healthy oils, nuts and seeds-all the foods you already enjoy eating.
What’s great about this program is that it’s not just a diet or a temporary solution. Whole30 is designed to be used as a learning tool to gain awareness of how the foods you eat actually affect how you look, feel, and perform.
You will dedicate 30 full days towards “resetting your digestive system” and to learning what you should be eating. Whole30 chooses foods that are raised, fed and grown naturally, and foods that are nutrient-dense, with lots of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals. Doesn’t that sound nice?
To give you a better sense of what the Whole30 consists of, take a look at this common list of foods called “Can I have…” that has the most common questions and answers, along with helpful tips to guide you to your Whole30 success.
You’re probably asking WHY you should do this. Well, the physical benefits of the Whole30 include improved body composition, athletic performance, energy levels, sleep quality, attention span, and mental attitude.
Also, the psychological benefits of the Whole30 include changing your long term, unhealthy food patterns, eating, and negative body image, and a dramatic reduction or elimination of food cravings, particularly sugar and carbohydrates.
AND it only takes 30 days!
Accompanying the program is the Whole30 book, It Starts With Food. It outlines a clear, balanced and sustainable plan to change the way you eat forever. Before you start this program read the book because it summarizes the science of how certain foods may be affecting you negatively in ways that you would never associate with your diet.
Don’t you want a program that gives you a life-long strategy for eating foods that are good for you and a detailed action plan designed to help you create a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, calm systematic inflammation and put an end to unhealthy cravings, habits, and relationships with food? I do! Grab a few friends or family members to try this with you for 30 days. See how food really makes you feel.
