Happy 2015 everyone! Happy Whole30 Day 1! I spent much of New Year's Eve preparing for today...shopping and cooking...so I'd be ready for today.
I got the Whole30 book, "It Starts With Food" and I must say, it's fantastic! It not only explains HOW to do the Whole30 Program, it explains WHY you're doing it...in a way that is easy to understand. I highly recommend this book. There's also some tough love in it too that I like because it's so true! For example...
It says that this Whole30 is strict, yes, but not hard. 'Please don't tell us this program is hard. Quitting heroin is hard. Beating cancer is hard. Birthing a baby is hard. Drinking your coffee black. Is. Not. Hard.' I laughed when I read this because...yep, that puts it in perspective! I'm going to remember this during this 30 days;)
The biggest thing I can tell you about Whole30 is this. It is not a diet. It's a way to change your life. After completing the Whole30, many people have reported "magical" elimination of a variety of symptoms, diseases, and conditions in just 30 days.... diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, acne, eczema, psoriasis, chronic fatigue, asthma, sinus infections, allergies, migraines, acid reflux, Crohn's, celiac disease, IBS, bipolar disorder, depression, Lyme disease, endometriosis, PCOS, autism, fibromyalgia, ADHD, hypothyroidism, arthritis, multiple sclerosis.
I've always been a firm believer in the power of nutrition, so I'm excited to have found the Whole30 Program...it really does start with food. I've had so much positive response about people all over joining me on the 30 day journey. I wish you all the best of luck! We can do anything we put our minds to!
