Whole30 is the new buzz in the food world. Creators of the program, Melissa and Dallas Hartwig are a Certified Sports Nutritionist and Certified Physical Therapist respectively. The Whole 30 started with New York Times book It Starts with Food , which outlines the initial program of resetting a life of unhealthy eating habits.
The program offers a difference in its approach, as it’s not just about losing weight but a changed mind about one’s relationship with food. Hopefully, by the end of the 30 days, a person will have started creating life long healthy habits. It is generally known that in order to alleviate bad habits you need to commit to 21-30 days.
The initial program begins with eliminating certain food groups such as alcohol, grains, dairy, legumes, processed foods, soy and of course sugar, not even honey! Thousands of stories of people who have committed to the new life style have attested to their lack of cravings for the bad “stuff” and increased energy levels. In addition, the healthy eating also brings added bonuses such as emotional alertness, better sleep and diminishing of aches and pains along with a plethora of other ailments.
Many have found the Whole30 program daunting and ask the question, “With all that is eliminated what is left to eat?” Jenny Fickey a freelance writer, blogger and certified coach offers great pointers, insight and advice on how to manage the program and keep your sanity.
