Join me for another round of the Whole 30 Challenge! 30 days of clean eating to change your life and make you feel better than ever. No better time than the beginning of a New Year. Anyone that wants to improve their health in 30 days is welcome to take the challenge. Step 1 would be to get the book "It Starts With Food" and read through it before starting. This is the foundation for the 30 days, with all the information you need to be successful and get started. I have a KillenFitness Whole 30 group on facebook that is an awesome tool to utilize. We share recipes, tips, struggles, success and anything else. You can be added to the group by requesting to be through FB or emailing me to be added (firstname.lastname@example.org). We are starting Monday January 5th but start dates are flexible as some challengers plan to start a few days before or after. Below is an abbreviated description from the Whole 30 site about what it is and what it can do for you!
"Established by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig in 2009, the Whole30® is our original nutritional program designed to change your life in 30 days. Think of it as a short-term nutritional reset, designed to help you put an end to unhealthy cravings and habits, restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, and balance your immune system. Certain food groups (like sugar, grains, dairy and legumes) could be having a negative impact on your health and fitness without you even realizing it. Are your energy levels inconsistent or non-existent? Do you have aches and pains that can’t be explained by over-use or injury? Are you having a hard time losing weight no matter how hard you try? Do you have some sort of condition (like skin issues, digestive ailments, seasonal allergies or fertility issues) that medication hasn’t helped? These symptoms may be directly related to the foods you eat—even the “healthy” stuff.
So how do you know if (and how) these foods are affecting you? Strip them from your diet completely. Cut out all the psychologically unhealthy, hormone-unbalancing, gut-disrupting, inflammatory food groups for a full 30 days. Let your body heal and recover from whatever effects those foods may be causing. Push the “reset” button with your metabolism, systemic inflammation, and the downstream effects of the food choices you’ve been making. Learn once and for all how the foods you’ve been eating are actually affecting your day to day life, and your long term health."
