What is Whole 30?
Whole 30 is a diet type that focuses on eliminating common foods for a 30 day period and then slowly reintroducing these to see how your body reacts.
“The Whole30 has been changing lives since 2009, when co-founder Melissa Hartwig Urban blogged about a 30-day dietary experiment that transformed her health, habits, and emotional relationship with food.
Since then, millions of people have changed their lives with the Whole30 program; eliminating cravings, improving energy and sleep, reporting an improvement in allergies, anxiety, chronic pain, digestive issues, skin conditions; and losing weight healthfully and sustainably.”
There are some simple Do’s and Don’ts for the Whole 30. Check them out here!
