What is The Whole30®?
A nutritional program created and designed by Melissa and Dallas Hartwig (also of Whole9) in April of 2009 to change your life in 30 days. They use the phrase ‘nutrition reset’ to help people put an end to unhealthy cravings and habits, restore a healthy metabolism, heal the digestive tract, and balance the immune system.
By removing certain food groups (like sugar, grains, dairy, and legumes) out of your diet completely to see if they are having a negative impact on your health. Thirty days allows enough time to for the body to heal and reset.
What are we resetting?

The Whole30 Program Rules
Eat Real Food: Meat, seafood, eggs, tons of vegetables (including potatoes), some fruit, and plenty of good fats from fruits, nuts, seeds, and oils. Eat foods with very few ingredients, if any at all.
Avoid for 30 days. No SUGAR of any kind, real or artificial, including honey, maple syrup, agave. Also, no chewing gum or mints.
No alcohol in any form, not even for cooking.
Do not eat grains. Including, but not limited to, wheat, rye, barley, oats, corn, rice, millet, bulgar, sorghum, buckwheat, sprouted grains, quinoa, bran, germ, starch, etc. Read the labels.
Do not eat legumes of any kind- including peanuts, all beans, peas, chickpeas, lentils. No soy or soy products-soy sauce, miso, tofu, tempeh, edamame, and sneaky soy (soy lecithin).
No dairy. Only exception is clarified butter or ghee.
Do not consume carrageenan, MSG, or sulfites. Check your labels.
Do not try to recreate your favorite treats or baked goods with Whole30 approved ingredients. That is completely missing the point of breaking and changing habits. A pancake is still a pancake even if you use eggs and bananas to make them.
NO scale, body fat analysis, or measurements for 30 days. You may weigh on Day 1 and Day 31. The program is not made to be a weight loss program, however most people experience weight loss.
Clarified Butter or Ghee. Only source of dairy allowed during Whole30. Milk proteins from regular butter could impact the results of your program.
Fruit juice as a sweetener. Some products or recipes will include fruit juice as a sweetener, which is fine for purposes of Whole30.
Certain legumes. Green beans, sugar snap peas, and snow peas are all okay.
Vinegar. Most forms of vinegar are allowed during Whole30, including white, red wine, balsamic, apple cider, and rice. Vinegars with added sugar and malt vinegar, which generally contains gluten, are not allowed. Watch for added sulfites. Naturally occurring sulfites are fine.
Salt. All iodized salt contains sugar. This is the only exception to the “no added sugar” rule.
