What is Whole30?

Whole30 is NOT a diet. Not at all. Whole30® is a 30-day eating plan with the purpose being to heal and refresh the body and mind. This includes resetting a person’s relationship with food, by removing foods that Whole30® has identified as potential craving inducers, blood sugar disruptors, gut damagers and inflammation causers. The goal of Whole30® is not weight loss (but it can happen) but to replace negative food habits with a consistent routine of great food choices that change a person’s health and wellness for the better. Read our Whole30 guide for recipes, how to read food labels during Whole30® and more.
As mentioned, there are some foods that are off limits, and it might seem a little difficult at first. Firstly, sugar, alcohol, grains, beans, soy, and dairy are no-gos during your Whole30 journey. We are here to help you look at what you are able to eat instead of focusing on what you are eliminating. Whole30 enables you to eat delicious foods that will help you develop healthier eating patterns for life, and we’re going to prove it to you.
