What Is Whole30?
Are you just getting started with Whole30 for the first time and you’re not sure what to eat? Whole30 is a health program started by Melissa Hartwig Urban in 2009. It’s not a year-round diet but instead, acts as a 30-day dietary reset for your body, hence the name Whole30!
It focuses on healthy natural foods like most vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, nuts, and healthy fats. What you can’t eat includes dairy, legumes, sugar, processed carbs, processed foods, and grains.
