Written by Healthoria.com – The Whole30 diet is a meal plan intended to reset your eating habits and help you identify which foods are causing you to gain weight, feel bloated, and effect your mood.
While many are using the Whole30 diet to lose weight it was started as a way to improve your overall health, well being, and happiness.
Here’s how to start the Whole30 diet.
Whole30 Diet Basics
The word you’ll often hear associated with Whole30 is “reset”. The goal is follow a whole food diet for 30 consecutive days in order to reset your eating habits and identify trigger foods that are causing unwanted results.
These unwanted results can be in the form of weight gain, acne, dark circles under your eyes, and lack of energy.
After your 30 days on the Whole30 diet, you would then slowly re-introduce some of the foods you would normally eat to identify which foods are causing you problems.
For example, many people don’t realize how gluten effects their body.
For some it causes skin problems, bloating, or stomach pain. Whole30 would help you identify exactly what gluten does to your body by removing it from meals, then reintroducing it after 30 days.
The big question is will you lose weight? And for the overwhelming majority the answer is, yes. But it’s the immense number of other benefits that is making Whole30 so popular.
Here’s what many experience after 30 days
Improved Joint Pain
What You Can Eat
Unprocessed Meat (chicken, lamb, steak, pork)
What You Can’t Eat
What Happens After 30 Days?
After your 30 days on Whole30 you can then begin to slowly re-introduce many of the foods you were eating to identify how it effects your body. Many are surprised to identify exactly which foods are causing their bloat or weight gain.
The natural transition that many choose after Whole30 is to begin the Paleo diet that has a similar whole foods philosophy but isn’t as strict.
