Alright. I get it. There’s a lot of talk of ridiculous diets and crazy health kicks out there right now. Thankfully, ya girl Kate has something you can try that is not a diet or cleanse, but more of a lifestyle change that will blow your mind about how you think of food and what food means to you.
To try to put it simply, Whole 30 is a program where you eliminate common allergens that are unhealthy, can mess with your tummy, and also cause a whole host of problems.
Here is a small list of just some of the things that Whole 30 has solved for people:
Acid reflux, acne, allergies, alopecia, asthma, pain, depression, diabetes, eczema, fibromyalgia, migraines, and much, much more.
Sound like a magical beautiful program that’s too good to be true? Well, it isn’t, and I’m the proof in the pudding. It has helped me through depression, body image problems, acne, bloating and small intestinal bacteria overgrowth (sounds gross I know).
I’ll give you a little run down of what Whole 30 is before you have to start guessing.
Whole 30 is a plan where you only eat whole, unprocessed foods for 30 days, and then reintroduce some of the foods that could be the cause of your issues.
What you are eating: whole, unprocessed foods, meat, seafood, veggies, fruits, eggs, nuts, seeds.
What you aren’t eating: grains, gluten, sugar, processed foods, dairy, soy, alcohol.
This may seem a little difficult, but I promise, it’s very doable. Look forward to additional articles about what an average day looks like, and some absolutely amazing recipes. But for today, let’s just cover the basics.
Dudes and Dudettes. You have to try this. It’s only 30 days, and I have faith you that you’ll have amazing results. If you have any sort of interest, go pick up the book written by Melissa Hartwig and Dallas Hartwig, the power-perfect-couple duo who first wrote “It Starts With Food”. The book hilariously and succinctly explains their reasoning and plan behind the Whole 30. It also includes a bunch of recipes and even breaks down all the ways you can cook an egg for all you newbie cooks out there.
The point is, you’re going to change the way you see food, make food, and eat it. For the better.
If it makes you feel better about starting, I’m doing it too!! Follow and message me on Instagram, let me know what’s up and we will swap recipes, emotions, and love.
As I eat this giant bowl of curry with all the veggies imaginable, I know that I feel incredible about my body, my health, and my happiness because of Whole 30. This isn’t because I’m losing a tremendous amount of weight, or making extreme changes, but because I’m taking loving actions and feeling damn good about them!
Stay tuned for more to come about recipes, tales of the good days, and the bad ones.
