Whole30 strong: June 1-30

I’m getting ready to do another Whole30 along with a friend.  It is not very different from my current eating plan, so it’s not a huge stretch for me.  It will be more difficult for her, so giving up my dairy and dark chocolate for a while is one way I can show support.

Anyone interested in joining us?  If you are satisfied with your current way of eating, more power to you.  Keep on doing what works.  But if you want to try something new, think about joining us for 30 days: June 1-30.

Don’t think of it as committing to a new lifestyle… think of it as an experiment, a way to truly know whether you have food sensitivity issues you didn’t know about.  Yes, the plan is strict, but after 30 days, you can add “potentially problematic” foods back into your life and just see how you feel.  Almost nobody will continue following Whole30 for the next year, but almost everyone will end up changing their food strategy pretty dramatically and feeling way better about their choices.Contact me if you are interested in joining us!

Some great coverage yesterday on the “Whole30” plan and “It Starts With Food” book:

I have been on the “Paleo” plan for some years now and I’m still quite happy with it.  I am both happier and healthier.  I really do believe that it literally saved my life (since I was pre-diabetic and I’m not anymore).

Yes, it is a really restrictive plan, but that’s why it’s only for 30 days.  The point is not to banish potentially problematic foods forever–the point is to reset and re-evaluate and actually determine what makes us healthy and happy.  Almost nobody will stick with the restrictive plan, but most of the folks I have helped/guided through the Whole30 have found it to be life-changing.

I’ve said this before, and the offer still stands: Any of my friends who would like to try this for 30 days, I will totally do it with you.  I will even buy you a copy of “It Starts With Food.”
