I just finished this book. It's called Whole 30 because the authors want you to give it a try for 30 days. Not a half ass try but an all out DO IT for 30 days. Here it is in a nutshell:
- Eat foods that make you more healthy- meat, seafood and eggs, lots of vegetables, some fruit, and plenty of healthy fats.
- Do not consume any added sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes or dairy.
- Do not attempt to recreate junk foods or desserts by using "approved" ingredients.
- Do not step on the scale for the entirety of the program.
The premise is it can change your life. It can change the way you think about food, it can change your tastes, it can change your habits and your cravings.
I'm always a little hesitant to believe the "scientific" evidence that are provided in these type of books. It seems you can find studies to back up whatever you believe. That's why the authors say, "Don't take our word for it, try it yourself!" I appreciate that.
One other aspect I appreciate is they address people who smoke. Quitting smoking should be the top priority over taking the 30 day challenge. Their words, "Ditch the smokes, then take on Whole 30."
There may be a time when I may want to try this for 30 days and see how I feel. Not right at this time. If you've done this program I'd love to hear about your results.
I started a small facebook group for January accountability and I loved it! If you set a January goal, how did it go?
