The Whole30 Book - The 30 Day Guide to TOTAL HEALTH and FOOD FREEDOM by Melissa and Dallas Hartwig is now available!! I got my copy today in the mail because I pre-ordered it. I immediately skimmed the whole thing and cannot wait to dive in and read it cover to cover.
This book is the complete guide to the Whole30. It has everything you need to know to have success on this program. It's also is beautifully laid out in an organized way...with gorgeous photographs. I'm a sucker for gorgeous photographs. :)
So what's inside? It explains the program completely from A to Z. It gives you a timeline of what you can expect during the 30 days. It has FAQs. It has shopping lists and a 7 day meal plan. It addressing eating out and travel. It talks about medical conditions, pregnancy and breast feeding. It discusses kids. It tells you about reintroduction of foods after the Whole30. It tells you what you should have in your kitchen...the fundamentals. It has RECIPES of all kinds, success stories....and much much more. In other words, it's AWESOME.
I believe everyone should try the Whole30 Program at least once. You will learn so much about yourself. You will gain confidence for having the discipline to complete the program. You will change your relationship with food. Most quick-fix diets focus on weight loss. The Whole30 takes the focus off the scale which I think is genius. So many women's lives, and men's, are dictated by what that number on the scale says. That has to stop because we are so much more than that number. This program shows success in other ways, in #NonScaleVictories, that mean so much more. With that said, people are losing serious weight on this program, and keeping it off. I've taken 10 stubborn pounds off easily and my husband lost 25 pounds. The most famous line about the Whole30? "It's not hard." This is so true. You can do anything for 30 days. All you need to do is decide, commit, and go.
I'm leading 61 people through the Whole30 right now. 56 of them through my local gym and the rest who have joined in on that same timeline. I am so excited to have this book as a resource to help people through the Whole30 because I tell anyone and everyone about the program.
Are you ready for a Whole30? I highly recommend you read this Whole30 Book and get started on this nutritional "reset". It just might change your life in 30 days too...like it has for tens of thousands of others.
The Whole30 was featured on the Today Show this morning which was so exciting! Melissa and Dallas Hartwig did such a wonderful job with this amazing opportunity to share the Whole30 with the world. Matt Lauer made the comment "no fun" at the end of the segment which I think was unnecessary...but other than that is was great. I LOVED that a main focus of the segment was about Tess, a woman who got off her diabetes medication after just two weeks of the Whole30. THAT. That is what the program is about...changing lives on that level. Bravo. My husband is a Chiropractor and he has been recommending the Whole30 to his patients with amazing results...
One of his patients was on insulin and was losing his vision due to diabetes. After the Whole30 he is completely off of insulin and he now has perfect vision. He also lost a significant amount of weight.
Are you ready? Just buy the book. Right now. Here...I'll make it easy for you. The Whole30: The 30-Day Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom. Then do the Whole30. Trust me, you'll be happy you did;)
"Stella" was as excited as I was to get the mail....she got her BarkBox in the mail today too;)
I also highly recommend their first book, It Starts With Food. Best book on nutrition I've ever read. Explains the physiology, without being too "science-y" so it's easy to understand. I think it's fascinating.
For a wealth of information I've put together for my groups, see my blog post on Whole30 Resources!
I'm going to go read now.... :)
