If you want to read why I decided to do a WHOLE30® program, go to my blog post “My Whole30 journey: healing my relationship with food (PART 1)”
First things first: What is this Whole30® thing? According to the Whole30® Day by Day book, Whole30® is a program designed to help you figure out how the food that you are eating is affecting you. In this experiment, you pull commonly problematic foods for 30 days, then reintroduce them one at a time and compare your experience. It is an experiment designed to improve your metabolism, digestion and overall health. In fact, they call Whole30® a reset, not a diet since it’s not about weight loss; there’s no calorie counting or restriction. Its purpose is to learn how food affects you and to create new healthy habits (Hartwig, 2017).
