Synopsis

The Whole30 (2015) is a dietary program aimed at improving your health and general well-being. It’s based on the idea that, by cutting out certain harmful food groups and reintroducing others, you can find a diet that works for you.

Key idea 1 of 9

The Whole30 will reset your health and well-being.

Do you find that you’re already tired by eleven? Do you frequently experience odd aches or pains? Well, this could all be due to the detrimental effect of certain foods on your body – and quality of life. The Whole30 program may be exactly what you need.

The Whole30 will help you completely reset your health. It’s an innovative way of helping you figure out what’s good for you and what’s not.

The aim is to rid your diet for 30 days of all products that have been scientifically shown to provoke either hormonal imbalances or inflammations in a large number of people.

After 30 days, your body should be set back to neutral. Then, you’ll be able to start slowly reintroducing potentially harmful ingredients such as alcohol. In doing so, you’ll be able to monitor the impact that each ingredient has on your body – whether it affects your moods, energy levels or your sleep patterns.

Eventually, you’ll be able to categorize each ingredient into foods that have a positive impact on your health and foods that don’t. In time, you’ll be able to develop your nutrition plan as a step toward greater well-being.

The technique has been in use for many years, and it has received largely positive feedback from those who have tried it. In fact, 96 percent of people who have taken part in the program have experienced both weight loss and an improvement in their energy levels.

In addition to this, some people enjoy better sleep, feel that they have a greater ability to concentrate and experience better moods. For people who have lifestyle diseases, such as high blood pressure, or allergies, infections, arthritis and ADHD, the program has had a positive effect as well.

However, you don’t need to have a chronic illness to reap the benefits of Whole30. If greater energy and a healthier body are what you seek, then the program is a great fit. So let’s get started.
