During the Whole30 it is important to consume more natural meals for 30 days. Whole30 exists since 2009 and people swear that it is life-changing. The basic rules: Cut out “hormone-unbalancing, gut-disrupting, inflammatory food groups,” including sugar, dairy, alcohol, grains, and legumes (sorry, no hummus or peanut butter!).

The main difference in the Whole 30 is pretty close to eating plans like the Plaeo diet, the Whole 30 was based on the Paleo diet. Sorry there no recreating your favorite foods by changing a few ingredients. For example, pizzas with cauliflower crust that’s been really famous lately. In the words of co-founder Melissa Hartwig, “The fake version is never as good and usually leaves you craving the real thing even more.”

Benefits of the Whole 30

Hartwig explains how the program helps with energy levels, sleep, digestion, skin, joint pain/ swelling, asthma, migraines and even biomarkers like blood pressure, cholesterol, and fasting blood sugar. She explains that 96%of the people lose weight on this program, without the hassle of counting calories, or weighing their food.

“Limiting your intake of most processed foods, especially the simple processed sugars and excess processed fats, will help change your habits,” says Linda Raynes, nutritionist and author of No Time for Diets. “Habits are formed over a thirteen-week period, so the four-week period of changing your normal routine is a good start.” A bonus is that you can find out what you’re allergic to for those who keep having allergic reaction but can’t find the cause. Once your body has a chance to start new, you will easily be able to identify if these thins make you feel some type of way like bloated tired or even groggy.

The Downsides to the Whole 30

Besides being annoyed or cranky, if you high protein or even low carb approach your body will get into a ketotic state. This is when the body doesn’t have enough carbs to burn for energy, the body breaks down fats that release ketones. When there is too much fat to break down, the ketones levels get extremely high causing the kidneys to malfunction.

If you decide to do this diet for medical reason make sure to speak and discuss with your doctor first. If you’re trying to have a healthy and better diet, the nature of the plan can take some time. Example: If you break just one rule, you’ll need to start all over—yes, even on day 29. “People often feel like they’ve lost all they’ve worked so hard for, leading to self-loathing and giving up entirely,” says certified nutritionist Franci Cohen. “Eating healthy, whole foods does not need to be this extreme.” That being said, if your body responds well to structure you’re a pretty healthy person already. Here are some extra tips from Hartwig to help you out:

Plan ahead. Make a meal plan, clean out your pantry, stock up on emergency food for the office or travel, and create a plan for handling stressful situations like a family dinner or birthday party. You will be tested and tempted. The key is to be prepared.

Seek support. Join one of the Whole 30 free, online communities for accountability, advice, and resources. If you can find a friend or partner to take on the challenge with you, sign them up! It’ll certainly mean more options at your next potluck brunch.

Don’t weigh yourself during the challenge. While, yes, you’ll probably drop pounds by the end of the month, save the scale comparisons for the finale. It’ll distract from the real point—to eat healthy, whole foods.
