Whole 30 Life Change

Not too long ago I went on the Whole 30 Diet. I’ve never been one to try fad diets or have the need to be super skinny but I have a few health issues and this diet was recommended to me because of them. The basic idea of the diet is to eat only whole, healthy foods. Things like fruit, vegetables, nuts and lean meats. No beans and no grains of any kind are allowed. No dairy and of course no added sugars. Mainly water to drink. You can have black coffee, unsweetened tea and an occasional sparkling water with a splash of juice to sweeten it up a little.

Eat like that for 30 days to cleanse your body of inflammation and help your body heal. Once you are done with the 30 day diet, slowly add foods back in and take notice of how your body reacts.

What I found was that I feel significantly better eating the Whole 30 way. I feel so much better and the results were so good that I don’t even want to eat grains as much any more. It’s just not worth it to me.

Whole 30 is not a weight loss program, but on it, I lost 25 pounds. I feel healthier and lighter. My stomach feels better and I learned about what my body needs and how it functions best.

  1. I know everyone’s body is different and people have to find what works for them but I totally agree–I feel SO much better off of grains that they have not been a part of my diet for years. I of course have cheat days but I think when you actually lower the inflammation in your body, the way it feels and performs is so dramatic, it’s hard to go back. Good luck going forward!
