What’s the whole story with the Whole30 program? It’s a nutritional reset plan that has worked for countless people, and many of those who have done it swear by it — and defend it up and down. I know this for a fact, because last month, I wrote a piece on this site that was my attempt to deconstruct some of the latest, most trendy tactics to lose weight quickly.

“The Whole30 program encourages whole foods, meal planning, and preparation—all beneficial habits for a healthy lifestyle,” she tells SELF. “That said, I’m not a fan of ‘food rules. The Whole30® Program Plan for Whole30 Success. Since April 2009, millions of people have successfully completed the Whole30 ® program with stunning, life-changing results.

This is a summary of the official rules of the Whole30, plus some extra motivation from Melissa. The creators behind the wildly popular Whole30 program don’t promise weight loss, but they do promise that the diet will change your life. It’s a program that doesn’t count calories or portion. What exactly is Whole30, you ask? Good question: The “diet” is actually an elimination-style eating plan that asks dieters to ban all soy, dairy, grains, alcohol, legumes, and added sugars from.

Back in April of 2015, I had no idea my life was about to change in a very profound and dramatic way by completing my first Whole30. I give full credit to the life I have now to the Whole30 program.I won’t ever deny that if it wasn’t for randomly hearing about it, I would not be where I am today. What is the Whole30 ®. The Whole30 has been changing lives since 2009, when co-founder Melissa Hartwig Urban blogged about a 30-day dietary experiment that transformed her health, habits, and emotional relationship with food. Mid-way through. Massive uptick in flow and energy.

By Greg65, March 18 1 reply; 362 views; Greg65; March 20. The most important thing to remember when doing Whole30 is to check the label on everything you buy. A lot of everyday condiments and prepackaged goods have added sugar or additives that you might not be aware of.

When in doubt, choose whole foods, especially vegetables, but also fruits, nuts, meats, and seafood. As your Whole30 draws to a close, it’s time to take stock of your accomplishments and start creating your Food Freedom plan, taking what you learned during your Whole30 experience and turning it into life-long healthy habits that work for YOU.

  • the best tips for weight loos thank you
    Hey, I was wondering if you have heard of this weight loss program ( https://tinyurl.com/y329hfke ) It looks great program to help people loss weight. I was just looking for some options before I made my decision. By the way I love the content you have been posting lately.

  • Hey, I was wondering if you have heard of this weight loss program before?


    It looks like a great program to help people lose weight. I was just looking for some options before I made my decision. By the way, I love the content you have been posting lately!

  • Hey friends,I was wondering if you heard of this weight loss program before? https://tinyurl.com/y45bzzwo It looks like a great program to help people lose weight.I was just looking for some options before I made my decision.By the way, I love the content you have been posting lately!

  • You always have a little plateau in weight loss and just K ow th at its okay and you’re probably not doing anything wrong it’s just natural! Just keep going!:)

  • I wish I weighted that little. I have long way to go. I’m going to try eat as much whole foods I can. Eating good foods will make you feel good.

  • My husband and I are on day 13 of whole30 and it’s our first time. I suspect I’m losing weight because my sweatpants (elastic band) keep slipping down. My husband’s skin is glowing. It’s not as bad as we thought it would be, other than missing bread.

  • Wow i didnt know burgers were allowed i thought it was processed. My fiance and i completed week 1. Hope to great results. Already much more energy with both of us! No measuring yet just before photos!

  • So did you do the “Adventure to fit” diet or the “Whole 30” to lose the weight? Im confused with the vids…you look amazing either way!!

  • I ve been doing this for a week but I really stay away from anything but water…..occasional ealry morning smoothie with veggies and fruit….if I am needing sugar I will take a sip of pinapple juice in the fridge but not a glass of it…..I cook with no oils or subsitutes…just use meat on my salads ….eat as much as I want and have dropped 6 pounds in 8 days….doing some at home you tube workouts but not much….I try to eat a couple pieces of fruit a day but other than that….llllooottttsss of water…..You lost a lot of weight previously…so you know what you are doing….good job

  • This Paleo diet works, I promise… but it will fail IF you begin to over-eat. Calories are calories whether they’re from healthy food or not. Reaching for unhealthy snacks or over-eating is the only way you will regain fail on this diet. But yeah it works if you eat normally. I was on a starvation diet (calorie restriction) for months and yeah I got as skinny as I wanted but it fucked up my body. Just eat clean, don’t over-eat (LISTEN TO YOUR BODY, EAT SLOWLY) and stop reaching for the unhealthy snacks. And obey paleo’s (NO PROCESSED FOODS, NO DAIRY, NO GRAINS, NO UNHEALTHY SNACKS), this is a caveman diet so there’s no room for processed crap. Eat until you’re almost full but don’t over-eat… yes it works!

  • I can’t wait to start the whole 30.
    5 am workouts is really the only way to go for me, haha! Doesn’t it feel awesome?! And I recently cut out added sugar too. Best. Decision. Of. My. Life.
    It’s been two years-I bet you made tons of progress since 2017!

  • Only lost how much? The transformation is undeniable. That’s a really big difference chicky. Must be the replacement of fat with muscle. Good going. More proof that the number on the scale doesn’t matter. Wow.

  • Your story is literally the exact same as mine. Started at 224. Lost 30 lbs. stalled for 6 months! I am on day 10 of whole 30 trying to break my plateau!

  • I do agree with you about sugar addiction! I never eat candy or put sugar into my tea before i got married and now…. I’m addicted. It is hard to stay with out sugar however there is a lot of it in fruits!

  • OMG!!!!! YOU ROCK!!!!! dear im 236lbs i started yesterday im doing what iv learned for you!!!!! Im very excited and thank you for sharing your amazing journey:) im very exvited!!!!! Sugar is my downfall:( iv struggled my whole life with it im 45 now:) and have a baby!!!! Thank you for inspiring me!!!!:) have a beautiful day!!!!!!!

  • Bless you and congrats on your progress. One thing I notice with myself is I get a runny nose with foods that cause me inflammation. That’s my tell to foods my body rejects and I’m sure you’ve grown more in tune with your body after this program. Also I would invest in a juicer, watermelon lemonade and fresh orange juice are my favs ��

  • Not sure why you spend so much on kumbucha when you can make your own for pennies. Just get the GTS original and make your first scoby from that. As for the diet…Im gonna pass on that. I eat much healthier than that to begin with and I dont have a ton of money to spend on all that fancy food. In AZ fruits and veggies are cheapest on Wednesdays and we have POWOW..where farmers sell their excess for 70 pounds for 12.00. With the money I save I got a farm with fresh eggs every day.

  • No sweeteners? Does that mean no agave sirop? Which has a lower glycemeric index..?? I cut out cane sugar since ages. But I do eat some honey also.. Just a bit

  • Like everyone else I was surprised you had kids because you look so young yourself, now you can feel younger too!
    I just heard about Whole 30 while researching ways to lose weight without having to cut out fruit! Ugh ��
    I liked how you had pictures of your food and showed some of the labels too.
    Though I’m not sure about the cooking paper under the roasted veggies. Is that just to absorb oil? I’m not sure yet if oil is allowed. I’m guessing coconut oil or avocado oil is, (I haven’t looked at my list yet of what to buy at the grocery store).
    As far as the comments about the smoothies and coffee, sure you could’ve been more strict. However, I feel like you did what worked for YOU to keep you on track and that’s awesome ����! You can tell that you feel better, (not as tired), lost inches, and your skin really does look better like someone else had mentioned.
    I’m just grateful that that you posted your journey. It was definitely the motivation I needed. I’ve been wanting something that’s more natural that I can pretty much follow for life and won’t make me feel like I might have a heart attack someday because of it haha ��. I definitely cannot commit to giving up fruit for a lifetime!
    Thank you for sharing!

  • “Until then, I’m going to continue being a tired, tired princess” But girl same! If I have to get up for work at 5am one day, my body just automatically wakes up at 5am for an entire month

  • Great changes awesome. I just heard today meat is a class 1 carcinogen, causes diabetes and heart disease. And eating just one egg a day is compared to smoking 5 cigarettes. These foods put your health at risk

  • Can not believe you have kids. You look barely 18! Your food look good and doable. I wohldnt get bored with those choices. I can see the glow and you look skinner as the days went. I just learned about this diet and want to make a go of it. Thanks for the inspiration. Tanya from Orlando ��

  • Oooooo yay! I’ll watch this for sure. I’m 5’3 180 lbs and gaining so yes I need a change. I cook for a living and am surrounded by bad food almost 24/7 so the struggle is real in my life. It’ll be a miracle ����

  • I have such a similar start to yours. I started my weight loss journey at 221 lbs and did low carb, low fat diet. I’ve lost 35 ish lbs and have just plateaued since Jan. I’m starting the whole 30 next week. Hopefully it’ll help

  • Awesome video, thanks for sharing!!! I’m about to start whole30 for the first time and I’m beyond excited, but also terrified at the same time. Seeing the process helps a lot though!

  • I have Full on Ulcerative Colitis i call it ” The Poop Disease” ���� i will give this a go for sure i drink coffe usually with cream and sugar so the lack of sugar will be hard but I’ll give it a definate try thanks�� for sharing your Journey you’re a strong independent woman just remeber us woman are Conquers in Jesus!! Yaaaasss honey! God bless����

  • I agree with Tiffany Lambright your skin got more and more beautiful as the video went on. And when you said you went on a road trip with your kids I seriously thought that was like a new slang term for friends…..like I’m going to Vegas with my “boys”.

  • Great job. I would say for better results the opportunity with what I saw was what you drank. Your eating seemed fine but sugar was slipping into your drinks. Kombucha seems like it’s fermented so it has added sugar at some point (just like beer) so your body treats it just like added sugar. OJ in the supplement is a lot of added sugar, the smoothy as well and there were a lot of other drinks from the pictures that I have to think have added sugar. Anytime you juice something that’s resulting in added sugar because you’re extracting the sugar from the fiber. You can think of it as 2 phases. First was removing the added sugar from food next from drinks. There isn’t a lot you can drink when on Whole30 really. Just water is always the best in my view.

  • congratulations. good strong will you have. I’m sure you’ve touched alot of people in sharing your journey. keep on keepin on. ����

  • I’m a country girl so all the foods I grew up and only know are very unhealthy. Did you have a hard time changing the things you eat bc I have a hard time eating the stuff on your video bc to me it’s so bland and I’m a picky eater. Also did you you quick drinking sodas completely bc that’s all I drink is cola or sundrop ��

  • On the prework out product, which one do think gives you more energy to work out? Beachbody or Pure Pump, Or is it pretty much the same?

  • Awesome video. Love the journey, we’ve done it 4 times and also have two kids. Not sure the OJ is compliant but other than that it looked spot on. Congrats on all of your hard work paying off.

  • Great video! How do you eliminate sugar? It’s in fruit and vegetables. Same insulin response as, say, sucrose/white sugar. Also, why no stevia? To my knowledge, it doesn’t affect blood sugar. I only use it in coffee but still. Thanks!

  • Hi mam I am 27 and I almost look like your first picture and I really want to loose my weight plz tell how many time you spend on your exercise and when you do exercise plz give me reply I am seek of life and and because of this I am not giving good time for my family plz reply me mam plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz

  • I don’t know what to say ’bout this diet, but the diet which helped me to lose weight was the Military Diet. In 3 months i lost 40 lbs with it… I just couldn’t believe!

  • Weight Loss Dinner Recipes:
    Crispy Cod with Sweet Potato Fries.

    Sheet-Pan Italian Pork Chops.

    Butter-Baked Salmon and Asparagus.

    Seared Ginger-Cumin Swordfish With Blueberry-Avocado Salsa.

    Zucchini Noodles with Bacon Vinaigrette.

    Pesto Chicken.

    Warm Kale-Quinoa Salad.

  • Would love to see where you got your meal ideas and maybe even a list of meal examples you had. I am a terrible cook lol no creativity and I don’t know what goes good with what. I’m a total sugar addict and always find a way to go back but the things you had looked amazing and satisfying.

  • Beans, rice pasta, and grains, ate ALL VERY DANGEROUS TO HUMANS IN GENERAL!!!!�� NO human should be eating ESPECIALLY GRAINS AT ALL! Thats WHY AND HOW you got sick in the first place! Think about it!!!!����������������

  • You just need to make sure you eat enough food at your meals. And dates are your best friend when you need to satisfy a sweet tooth.

  • A repackaged low carb diet and it’s not healthy for your heart, the amount of ghee in this is a death trap. Just another money making diet that has barely any research! I’d much rather continue with a healthy balanced eating plan.

  • Costco and sams club and Walmart and aldi was honestly the best thing ever when I’ve done this. And also buying less expensive cuts of meat, like chicken thighs instead of breasts, 93/7 beef instead of 85/15 etc. also produce in bags (potatoes, apples especially) are usually cheaper per ounce than buying them individually.

  • What’s mentally exhausting about it? All you have to do is EAT REAL FOOD!!!! Fruits veggies and protein that’s it, there is nothing mentally exhausting about that.

  • I agree that it’s expensive. My husband and I eat pretty healthy as it is, but we couldn’t eat our normal snacky foods, and my husband isn’t a fruit eater, which results in buying nuts, and a lot of them. I’m trying to keep everything else pretty simple, but it still adds up! I also make sure I have the week planned of meals. We are almost one week in, wish us luck!

  • It’s not expensive at all except for replacing butter with ghee. That was the only thing that I added that’s expensive. I did a bunch of frozen veggies and roasted them. I also added ground turkey that’s $3 a package from Trader Joe’s. Day 5 was the hardest. I almost gave up but after that I had so much more mental clarity and a ton of energy. I was student teaching a first grade classroom and didn’t even need coffee at the end. I was at 3 cups in a school day before I started. I’m sorry you didn’t have a good experience with this.

  • I did it in 2016 and lost 10 pounds. People were like wow. 2020 I am back by 5 years. Gained what I lost. It’s so difficult to do a second cycle

  • “Where you stop eating all the stuff you love!” Really? On a similar reset approach I went carnivore for 30 days. I stopped eating all the stuff I was addicted to and started eating the stuff I really love. Reset is supposed to be challenging, more for some than for others. Eliminating all the junk from my shopping list lowered the grocery costs. My suggestion, commit to 30 days and open yourself to the experience, as you did. The last two minutes of the video were great.

  • My grocery bill was the same or less. But I just ate fruit veggies and protein. But I’m only buying for one person. Veggies aren’t expensive.

  • If your grocery bill doubled, this means you are eating a lot of rice, bread, pasta, and other processed foods. If you already eat a ton of fruit and vegetables this will be the same grocery bill. I also buy meat at Sams Club, cut it into servings, and vacuum pack it for the next couple weeks. Loved this diet. Did it for 90 days. Yes, the first 5-7 days are tough. After about 21 days, you really stop craving snacks, sugar rushes, and even caffeine. You think you can’t live without these thigns, but after eating this clean, you don’t need stimulus in your diet.

  • I’ve been shopping “real” food and meal planning for a while now so the switch to Whole30 wasn’t a change in price and effort at all for me, just the contents of the meal changed. I did find that using a shopping service really helped cut down on time since I could order online and pick up after work. In addition, I switched from complex recipes to simple meals I know how to do quickly like chicken breast and broccoli or steak and green beans. Spent max 45 minutes on the meal daily.

  • Thank you for this video, I am currently researching whole30 for now, as I am coming to the end of my medical program and would be insane to try to start this elimination diet at this time! your video helped me in my research process!

  • Frozen veggies are 10 for 10, sale fruit, frozen fruit, sale meats… eggs and canned tuna are great and cheap sources of protein. I love whole 30 on a budget.

  • my grocery bill while being a vegetarian is low as well. Frozen vegetables are an option, as well as canned veggies. pre-mixed seasonings save on money instead of buying individual seasonings. Depending on your weight and toxicity level in your body, results will vary. Results are subjective. BUT going on the diet will only help you. Do not overthink your grocery list. For example for Breakfast make an omelet. For lunch, have your favorite salad (with meat, if you into those type of things lmaooo), and dinner roasted veggies, salad and (meat if it’s necessary… I guess) Everybody has different situations health-wise, but what does not have to be hard is your grocery list. And BTW as a vegetarian, I am giving suggestions to you meat eaters, so don’t come for me, because I could care less that you choose to eat meat, so don’t bother me about choosing not too. hahahaha.

  • If i understood correctly, cut out bread starches and sweets. Ok so how is that new in dieting? Anyone can do that. Oh and dairy and caffeine and alcohol. So the point isnt to lose weight it is to determine what(if any) foods your body has a negative reaction to. This all seems common sence to me. We dont need a fad to help us know this we just experiment with food without all that. I was going to try it but now i dont think so. So thank you for sharing. Good success to those of you that are doing it.

  • It’s hard when you are not used to eating healthy and then throwing yourself into a elimination diet. I found that cutting back on sugar, progressively and making some swaps in your normal diet. Such as less processed foods, restaurant food, carb heavy meals. I’ve done this for a while so when I did Whole30, it was relatively close to how I had been doing things. I did miss whole grains and legumes and I didn’t see the benefit of cutting those out. I was happy to completely cut out sugar and refined flour, it did help me reset my sugar tolerance. I think most of it is a mindset and our attachment to food. There are also some legitimate addictions that will be good to acknowledge but you can break those. Because you have an addiction to sugar or to most refined carbs doesn’t mean it’s the way you are and you can scale way back to manage that. The Whole30 diet is interesting to those that what you draw attention to their body and how they’ve been eating but really it’s about living a lifestyle of healthy choices. Everyone knows that but somehow we keep getting on quick fix diets and severe elimination and wonder why it fails. Take the information from this and recognize how we have been nourishing our body and what we need to do to move forward.

  • I think it’s awesome that you shared your experience. BUT I do think you should change the title.. because they go over all of this information in their book. They talk about all of the struggles and give tips on how to prepare. So… they do tell you. Perhaps… “things I didn’t prepare myself for doing Whole30”. Just a thought. Again, thanks for sharing your experience.

  • Everything through:50 is pure fluff. No-one wants to wade through fluff to get to the good stuff. Nice video and quite helpful, however…

  • This is really interesting! I’ve been doing vegan Whole30, as I lead a plant based lifestyle normally AND I am an intermittent faster which I have maintained throughout my time with Whole30. I can’t relate to your experience and it’s so interesting how everyone’s experiences can be so different. My body has felt incredible, and if anything, I have been more mentally clear, more energetic and have been having way better sleeps too! Also, I haven’t noticed an increase in my grocery bills, just that I am replacing any non Whole30 friendly foods that I was buying before with larger quantities of fruits, veg, nuts, seeds, etc.

  • 1:15 in and it’s already a stupid diet. Common sense tells you what’s not good for you. Get rid of sugar and lower carbs and your body will love you.

  • I watched the whole video, and she has some great idea among the comments of frustration. I have epilepsy (minor and I’m on and stayed on medication) and did not find this hard. I had clearer thinking, more energy in the first few weeks. I did gardening projects, including using a roto tiller! and found that I had plenty of energy to accomplish these tough projects. I do not drink alcohol, so that was not a problem.
    I will say that I eat well to begin with, since i do not eat gluten and am low on dairy intake. I did allow myself hummus.I miss the honey in my tea, my oat granola bars ( I am mostly gf…oats do not bother me) and craisins, my snack foods. I think I’ll start to add those slowly and not just munch on them several times a day.
    The cost was not a problem for me as I already eat a lot of veges and fruit..gf on a shoe string! I did find grilling my vegetables tasty and it helped balance the lack of sugar and grains. I was glad I could still have meat on whole thirty, but I have been light in the meat department all along. I am married and have three kids, two teens and one who is 22. They eat what they want. Our grocery bill for the 5 of us rarely goes over $180 to $200 a week.
    I will add things back slowly, but probably not wait several days, as my eating habits were mostly fine before I started this. I will say it took me many years to get to great eating habits, so this is just part of the journey

  • Did you read the book before you started?
    They explain all of this in the book (minus the costs) but they strongly encourage you to meal prep and mentally plan for this life change.

  • Hi, I’ve been researching Whole 30 of late and contemplating doing it for my own health, energy level and arthritic joint pains as well as for my sweetheart, who is almost a quadraplegic from progressive MS. There are certain “traditions” we have, including coffee & a bite of something sweet, or going out which are important to us due to the mobility issues ruling out most recreational activities. I really appreciate you sharing the “difficult” things because I was considering maybe this is too much change for us and a better approach would be something more gradual. It seems that autoimmune issues seem to magnify whatever kinds of symptoms we have, so it takes more time for adjustments when there’s autoimmune issues in the mix.

  • My Whole30 bills have never been expensive, except if I wanted a specialty ingredient for a dish. I never spent more than $30/week (in NYC). I shopped at Farmer’s Markets as well as Trader Joe’s and Target. I also ordered sparkling water in bulk off of Amazon. Even though my budget was lower, I still never went hungry. Meal prep and buying in season are key to keeping your grocery bill low and your stomach satisfied! My experience was great, and I’m about to start another round!

  • Glad I found your video! I too have Hashimoto’s (yay for crappy immune systems!) I start whole 30 tomorrow and have been dreading it. It’s good to know what to expect.

  • Meal planning helps a lot. My usual rule a thumb for a meal on Whole30 one fat, one protein and 2 veggies. Frozen section at Whole Foods helps a lot for veggies, berries and fruit.

  • I think the key to feeling good on whole30 is reducing the amount of fruit you eat. It’s still sugar and I ended up just filling cravings with fruit in the beginning. Same goes for potatoes.

  • Imagine if everyone would go on keto, paleo, Atkins or even this diet…..what would happen to all the wonderful food GOD gave us..Like mangos, pineapples..Pumpkins, etc…just imagine..would they disappear from earth since we can’t eat them..This makes me think a lot!.Thanks for then video

  • My experience was amazing! My grocery bill went down, but I also food prepped and ate the same meals, keeping it simple for the week and then moving onto a new set of recipes. Sorry you had a bad experience. I think you should give it another go, pick 4-5 recipes to rotate for breakfast, lunch and dinner and make those ahead of time so you can grab and eat and see if that will work better. I also recommend shopping at a Trader Joes and Costco. Whole 30 is strict but worth it!

  • So glad I found this video! I am restarting my whole30 because I was not able to complete the first round due to some testing i had to get done that required me to fast and then drink ensure and by the end of day 9 I caved and ate pizza:(. But I am going to restart tomorrow and stick it out! Thanks for being so real!

  • Thanks for sharing your experience. It’s all about discipline and accepting change. A positive mindset makes a huge difference with any change. If a person can implement patience with the diet change while applying discipline, their experience will be good. A detox from anything brings mental stress, but it’s possible.

  • Did you really read up on Whole 30 before you did it? All of these things are discussed in depth. As for the budget, it did not effect our budget too much. We did eat pretty normal, nothing fancy. Meats and veggies with some fruit thrown in.

  • Everything she’s talking about IS addressed in the books “It Starts With Food” and “Whole30.” And yes, it IS all about prep, because that’s how people eat healthy to begin with even when they’re not doing a Whole30. And the worse you eat, the harder it is because YES you will have withdrawals. Whole30 IS about learning about yourself-your habit, your emotional eating tendencies, what you rely on to feel full (in my case dairy). So if she was eating rice, pasta, and bread to feel full, then that was something she learned and she needed to figure out a different meal template to keep her full, which was addressed in the book. And the reintroduction is covered extensively in the book. The prep for a Whole30 is not just shopping, it’s reading through all the materials, sometimes more than once, to truly understand the program.

  • The Whole 30 is more of a challenge the first time around. I’ve done it three times and currently doing it now. The first time I think I spent more on things Id never buy now, such as RX bars, Lara bars, Epic Bars. I shop mostly at Trader Joes and spend around 100 per week for my daughter and I (she is doing it as well). I think many go into a panic about the change and over purchase but having done this a few times, I can say it is totally possible to do on a budget. Spending less on snack foods cuts a huge amount from my budget. I do not eat out or get Starbucks daily. There is really no price for well being and Id rather see my money go to healthy eating rather than paying for medication or dr visits.

  • I loved my Whole 30! #januarywhole30
    I didn’t find it more expensive, once you have your pantry updated its all good!


  • Hmmm.. did you read the actual Whole 30 book written by the creator of Whole 30? She talks about every single one of these things in great detail..

  • PALEOwhole 30 made me lose 35 pounds and feel better. my a1c went down to under 6.0 shocking my doctor who wanted to put me on pills. the only problem i had was foot and leg cramps. make sure you take magnesium supplements and pickle juice really helps and eating pickles as well.

  • My grocery bill was soooooo much less. I think because I went to Costco for my bulk items.
    And then Trader Joe’s for little things.

  • Whole30 was fine for the budget of my wife and I. We did meal prep with friends for a lot of it, and afterwords just did it ourselves. I made a chili and a special kind of salad I could easily assemble. Then just grab some go-to snacks and drinks. If you want to make a different meal every day, sure, maybe, but that could be excessive. Coconut aminos though…just don’t get the ridiculously expensive bacon otherwise.

    Try Daniel Plan. I’m in the 2nd week of no caffeine. I’ve stopped having headaches at least.

    Daniel Plan is also great to incorporate faith.

  • I have had several autoimmune diseases for 20 years. I don’t think many of us will get “Tiger Blood”.. I don’t do Whole30 but I wouldn’t blame low energy on any plan..it’s just a symptom of a bad immune system.

  • Thanks for the heads up on some of these points! Also, thanks for being so candid about your autoimmune condition. I’ve had thyroid problems in the the past and my mom suffered from crippling fibromyalgia (an autoimmune disease that’s considered incurable) for years. We both saw a naturopathic doctor who specialized in NAET and now we are both COMPLETELY FREE from those diseases. Seriously. After I recovered, I went on a similar “reset diet” for about 8 months and I totally had full-time tiger blood after the first 4-5 weeks of detox! It was awesome.
    Anyway, if you’re open to trying it, I’d encourage you to do some research and talk to an NAET certified doctor about your condition. With the right help, your body can probably heal itself! Wishing you the best!

  • My experience has been amazing. I found out quickly the bad food I was eating regularly and was an eye opener. I never felt down and the biggest problem was truly accepting the challenge! Preparation is the key. Being an emotional eater is a whole other topic. Stop making excuses. BTW, I’ve lost 17 lbs. and have a week to go!

  • Your best health doesn’t come easy in today’s society but having done a whole 30 and resetting my body, my belly, my brain and my hormones I know when I’m off and I’m more in tune with everything around me. I would encourage you to try it again and keep going with it until you feel your best! If you dont exercise then I would super encourage you to get into a routine. I bet that it could help your hypothyroidism and make you feel even better!

  • Your video was very helpful. I started the Whole 30 January 1st. And yes grocery bill is higher for me and washing dishes a lotlol. But my body feel great!

  • I’ve done whole30 twice and yes I agree it can be very expensive bc of the restrictive ingredients list and availability. The one thing I found most frustrating was the amount of time for meal prepping. Sometimes I would spend and entire Sunday meal prepping!

  • So glad to hear that others experienced the bone weariness that I am having. The brain fog is ridiculous. Good to hear this is common and temporary. Probably should have done this while taking some vacation time.

  • I have hosshimotos also and haven’t had tigers blood either! I have been really moody, glad It’s just not me! So glad I watched this video! ����

  • Tiger blood is definitely real I didn’t get it till I was done. put yourself in uncomfortable situations, you’ll surprise yourself with what you can actually do. Doing another one this month ��

  • I loved my Whole 30 experience, and I didn’t end up spending any more money than usual. I kept things simple I roasted sheet pans of chicken drumsticks and mixed vegetables, and that would be my lunch and dinner on most days. Of course I threw in some other recipes here and there, but for the most part I kept it inexpensive and really simple. I would change up the vegetables and seasonings each time I roasted a pan, and that was my variety. For breakfast, I would saute onion, roma tomatoes, spinach, and Italian seasoning, then add two scrambled eggs to make a frittata. I never seemed to get tired of it, for some reason. I drank water and black coffee. I made smoothies from frozen fruits. I found that it was better to spend my money on fruits and vegetables than on fast food, bread, sweets, and dairy products. I also have Hashimoto’s disease, and never felt “Tiger blood.” But I also didn’t get any mood swings like you describe. I felt light and clean, though. Clear headed. Not tired. So I guess the experience is unique to every person! ��

  • When I initially started listening to this video, I thought you were going to be a “negative reviewer” but I’m so glad I kept listening and watching. You are funny and I love the great review and info. I’m preparing now and plan to start in 2 weeks. I’m overseas working and can’t find stuff like bone broth but I am preparing as much as possible. Thanks for the great video! Two thumbs up!

  • This was a great explanation of the program and of the types of results that I think a lot of people experience. Thanks for sharing your experience

  • I’m on day 10 of my second Whole 30 round and it has been sooooo much easier. I HIGHLY recommend doing this program with a yoga challenge or some sort of meditative practice, and meal prep program. Check out SnapKitchen and use my promo code KSAN-9VR to receive $45 towards a Whole 30 approved meal plan or $15 towards your first meal. You can pick your meals for the week and have them delivered microwave ready. SOOOOO WORTH IT!!!:)

  • Thanks for this candid review! I have Hashimoto’s & RA (one autoimmune disorder makes you susceptible to others…yay). I plan on giving it a go because I can tell gluten is causing flare ups with the RA. May I recommend two bloggers: Downshiftology and Lilsipper. Both have cost conscious recipes that are actually delicious. All the best to you in your journey!

  • Great video… I’ve done 4 rounds of Whole 30. It is very expensive, and honestly, I have NEVER experienced tiger blood. But, that being said… I continue to do rounds throughout the year as a reset, and as a challenge. AND, the more rounds you do, the easier the transition is… (but meal prep doesn’t get any faster… hahaha!)

  • Shop seasonally!!!! I feel so so blessed to have done this during summer. There was so much fresh foods available as well as the ability to fish near by and get fresh food.

  • A repackaged low carb diet and it’s not healthy for your heart, the amount of ghee in this is a death trap. Just another money making diet that has barely any research! I’d much rather continue with a healthy balanced eating plan.

  • My grocery bill actually went down maybe because I wasn’t buying alcohol lol! I ate a lot of cauliflower and zucchini instead of pasta or rice and found it was a great substitute. My energy level was awesome. I also have a histamine intolerance so alcohol and a diet heavy in carbohydrates is super bad for me (causes my body to over produce anti-inflamatory hormones). I think by big staples were almond butter, eggs, sweet potatoes, zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli.

  • In what universe is eating gee healthy? In what universe is this diet going to help you detox? This is just the paleo and low carb stuff rebranded.

  • Here is what I enjoy about your Whole30. It’s accessible to everyone. If you just learn to read labels you can gain all the advantages of this elimination diet. But mostly, I appreciate how you don’t push your books. Yes, you’d like all of us to own a copy of each, but all the information is here, on the internet for free. This diet is present without smoke and mirrors. You tell everyone who wants to listen and learn how to succeed. Bravo.

  • At the beginning of the video sleep was mentioned and also energy level. Those two things were not mentioned after the diet. I wondered how those were affected.

  • This is this most ridiculous whole 30 video I’ve ever seen! Clearly you’re doing it wrong… My grocery bill was no where near double.. not even more than it normally is. And W30 makes you tired?? That is absolutely false information to spread around. I never ever felt more tired on the whole 30 than I felt in my regular life.

  • I’ve done Whole 30 twice now, The first time through was pretty difficult (March2019). I had recently been diagnosed with Crohn’s and was looking for a possible way to reduce inflammation. Though I’m largely asymptomatic when it comes to crohn’s the biggest change I saw was a lost of 24 lbs in a month!!! A year had past since my diagnosis, and I was gaining weight at a profound rate. I weighed more than I ever had in my entire life. I started my second round of whole30 (Jan2020) and again lost 22lbs in a month. I found the second time was easier, sugar is my Achilles heel, but orange juice cured my cravings. Having meals planned ahead of time was a huge help! Going out to eat is nearly completely off the table, Knowing when a meal was made, that I had better make enough for left overs is a sure fire was to keep you from taking the easy way out and purchasing something from a fast food joint in a pinch. The second time around for me has definitely encouraged the need to continue eating healthy, and look for alternatives to processed foods and sugar. Congratulations on your whole 30!

  • Loved this video. I just started the Paleo Diet three weeks ago (with one cheat day a week). I’ve also been running on the treadmill 4 times a week. So far, I’ve lost 11lbs! You are right about substituting the things you love with a healthier option. I’m now craving healthy food, no longer wanting to cheat, and have an abundance of energy! Great job!!

  • question why no legumes, i can see soy beans but what about all the other amazing ones that are packed with micronutrients and fiber?

  • I’m on Day30 of my first non-SWYPO whole30. I’ve done 3 other rounds but I was barely technically compliant in those rounds. This round being completely compliant to the letter, and the spirit of the rules was sooo much harder. I recorded notes on my days every day, and my reaction was similar to yours. Everything is expensive! My grocery bill went from $400 to $800!!!!! The prep work is absolutely insane and the first one or two weeks sucks. But I will say it was 100% worth it. I feel so so much better and I’ve definitely changed some food habits psychologically since I followed those rules to the letter. This video is accurate for anyone going into this!

  • So many problems with whole 30! It is a restrictive diet which can cause and provoke disordered eating. Once the 30 days is over you will go straight back to your old habits and you will binge on the foods you haven’t had in 30 days!

  • I’m planning to do the Whole30 this summer. Has anyone figured out how to do a decent cup of coffee that is ok while on this protocol? I like do add creamer and sweetener. I MUST have my coffee.

  • I did this program twice. The 1st thing I can recommend is pick a 30 day period where there are no special events. I’m a big drinker and not having alcohol was the biggest challenge. But the 1st time I lost 40lbs. And after baby #2 I lost 20lbs because I cheated and started the program twice.lol now I’m on the 3rd time. In 6yrs

  • I really enjoyed this video, I just started whole30 and I honestly hate it but it’s really nice to hear someone else who struggled with it but ultimately thought it was a good thing

  • Thanks for sharing. I’ve been wanting to try this new eatinf plan for a while now. It was encouraging to hear you say that it wasn’t hard at all. I plan on starting this plan on Monday.

  • Go to Aldi. Produce is cheaper. Not having Tiger blood is most likely not the norm, it’s unfortunate, but most likely cuz of the autoimmune disorder. It’s a hard program to follow. But I’ve done 4 whole 30s and I’m old. I think I knew it would be extremely challenging. It’s no picnic. The biggest thing for me was doing all those dishes!!!!!

  • I thought you were supposed to start the 30 days again when you brake the rules?? Pretty sure you broke the rules, a couple of times.

  • You should do a follow up video where you slowly reintroduce foods to see if anything specifically was the cause of problems you experienced before. Acne, bloating, etc.

  • Congratulations!!! I’ll be starting my Whole30 on March 1, 2019 & this video is really encouraging. I’m 65, retired, live alone, and due to a chronic illness that mainly causes major fatigue, I have no social life (my own fault) so a totally different lifestyle BUT I also have a lot of that under the skin acne that I know is a buildup of sebum…yuck…probably because my number one vice is COLA (Coke or Pepsi) and I’m talking the real deal, not diet. Been drinking cola in various degrees since I was 19!!! It began in college because I don’t like coffee so it’s what I drank to stay awake pre-exams, etc. That’s 46 YEARS of pouring sugar into my body. Thank God I don’t have raging diabetes…not even pre-diabetic that has to just be good genes. So, no Coke will be my #1 challenge I don’t drink, really don’t have a sweet tooth except for the Coke like the foods I can eat on it, etc.

    I decided to move toward a Keto/Paleo/Primal type of eating because my cholesterol is high for the first time in my life. In addition to all the Coke, I don’t like to cook so for years I’ve primarily eaten frozen/processed foods. The beginning of January I began moving toward that diet and without any other changes, no exercise, etc. I’ve already lost around 15 lbs so I’m excited about positive changes continuing.

  • Thank you. I am considering Whole 30 for health reasons (and if I lost some weight I wouldn’t complain). I appreciate your honesty. Good video!

  • I’m doing this diet and im about 5 days in and I have lost 3 pounds….and idk if that’s a healthy amount weight loss.
    I’m 17
    5ft 10in
    177lbs (at the start of diet)
    15% body fat (I’m an athlete however not in season rn).

  • I’m on day 9 of the whole30 and my hardest part is craving sugar and candy. I’m fine for the most part and then I see peanut m&m and want to cheat. I haven’t cheated yet. Must…have….willpower

  • Is legumes and grains not “whole” food? Seems a bit misleading…whole foods just means foods that are as little/no processed as possible and closest to their natural form. Whole fruits, veggies, GRAINS. Basically, for a ‘whole food’ diet, if it had a nutritional label on it, it should contain 1 ingredient to be a truly whole food. If processed/packaged, it should be minimally processed, have a short list of ingredients, and every ingredient should be easy to understand what it is.

  • It would have been nice to see what you were eating and to see the reintroduction phase which is the essential purpose of Whole30 how certain foods affect your body.

  • I loved your video! Thanks for sharing your experience with Whole30. I think I’m ready to try it. I’m sure you’ve tried all kinds of different products for your skin, but I would recommend a lotion called “Kiss My Face” (the one with Vitamin A & E). Not only do I love the name of it, but I’ve been using it for over 20 years now and people always say how young I look for my age. You’ll want to apply it to damp skin or wet your hands first because it is a bit too thick on its own. It says body lotion on the bottle but I use it on my face and everywhere else. It’s non-oily and won’t sting after you shave. Yes, it is very kissable because there is no taste and it smells naturally great with no added fragrance. Good luck with your diet!

  • It’s nice that so many people had results. Mine were very minor. I was coming out of a depression, and read that it helped people with mh problems, so I tried it with a little too much hope that it would bring me out of it, and was a little disappointed when that didn’t really happen.

    I didn’t completely follow the rules to a T, because I can’t always eat at work when I’m hungry, so sometimes I had to wait, but everything else was pretty much to the letter, save for the occasional RX bar (which is still compliant as long as you don’t overdo it). But, I work in a bakery and went two months without eating any of the food there, so I was glad to see that I could challenge myself to do that and succeed. I did it for about 50 days and then another 14 for reintroduction, because my body tends to react slowly to things hoping that

    The best things about it for me was just that it got me to cook. I grew up in a family of non-cooks, so it forced me to put way more work into the food I ate instead of eating for convenience. I was also cooking for other people in my house who were sort of doing the diet, and adjusted some for a person who can’t have any salt. It helped me realize that legumes make me extremely gassy(or at least lentils do), and that cheese wasn’t having much of an impact on me as I thought. But, I didn’t have the magical results a lot of people do. I actually gained a bit of weight, but my clothes did become looser, so I’m not putting too much stock in the weight portion.

    I’m open to any advice. The RX bars are really the only thing I can think of that weren’t really the best choice(but even those I only had on occasion). I tried my best to stay in the spirit of the program, and maybe I could have exercised more, but I was hoping for there to be more positives than I got, especially with mental health, energy and certain dietary issues. I always assumed milk was what blocked my digestive system, but eliminating it for two months only helped me a small amount. I was hoping to have more energy and feel a lot better, but I was disappointed that after 64 days, my depression only lessened a little bit(and I was doing a lot of therapeutic-related things as well that have helped in the past while I was doing whole30, so the actual difference might be even smaller). I don’t know if anyone else has had similar issues and found a solution, but if there’s anyone out there who had a similar experience to mine and made changes that worked, I’m open to suggestions or insight.

  • but isn’t the point to find out what foods aren’t right for you? It would have been cool to hear about the reintroductory phase. After all, it’s not really supposed to be about weight loss., that’s just a pleasant side effect

  • did you do any form of exercise during the 4 weeks like fasted cardio for 30-40 mins…i would equate this diet to just very clean eating without sugar dairy or starchy carbs

  • I have been doing keto and am down from 161 to 145 have been at a stall, i was going to start a whole 30 and yesterday I added a larabar and some plaintain chips. I gained 3 lbs overnight. since I have been doing keto I wanted to weigh even though cutting Dairy and stevia. I think I need to do a modified whole thirty or keto without dairy and stevia. Dont think I can do the potatoes and fruity treats, which is a bummer.

  • I did whole 30. I loved it. Not being able to have sugar really made fruits taste like candy and now I hardly ever go near sugary snacks. My weight changed slightly, but my main goal going into it wasn’t weight loss, it was changing my eating habits. I was addicted to sugar and soda and now I’ve almost completely eliminated both from my diet. I would recommend whole 30 for sure.

  • Starting off any plan/change by saying “I’m terrified…” is not a great way to start.:( I highly recommend reading the Whole30 books to learn and get excited about all of the reasons you’re doing this plan. The Non Scale Victories are the biggest reasons to do this plan.:) I lost over 100lb and having a positive mindset is the main reason. No fear, and positive self talk.:)

  • That chocolate bar is NOT allowed on whole30 so beginners get a real notion of what a 30 day reset is. That is not compliant, at all. Also, a whole pack of dried fruit really is a lot of sugar for a whole day:( if you keep feeding your “sugar dragon” it keeps getting harder to stay away from sweets.

  • I claim healing and restoration for you all, each in the way that God knows you need! Jesus loves you! He is coming soon, be blessed!

  • The girl in the video was more concerned about her social life and skin problems…than the over-all effect of whole30. How was energy levels? What triggered cravings? How do you feel? Would you do it again? What did you learn? What advice would you offer? Also…she didn’t lose much weight or have the success the diet promotes because she basically cheated with chocolate and dried and frozen fruit. Cravings are bitch! And that’s one of the purposes of Whole30 is to break those food addictions. Can’t do it if you’re doing it.


    I noticed that when people do whole30 many of them try to find ways to curb their cravings by “cheating”. Like eating the whole dried fruit in one sitting. Or making pancakes with paleo ingredients…or finding some yummy recipe that substitutes for what you were eating before. My thoughts are that to have the best success is to follow the plan as simply as you can without creating elaborate recipes and plan what you are going to eat ahead, then only have that food available. Forget take out. Forget shopping at the last minute. Forget going out to bars and potlucks. You are just setting yourself up for failure due to temptation. You’ll also be creating undue stress by being around things you can’t have, instead of being at home eating the things you can have. If you do fall off the wagon (eating a big ol bag of dried fruit that’s not on the plan), then you need to start over. To have the best results…although admittedly more difficult, stick with the menu, keep it simple, and focus on getting healthy instead of worrying about your social life. Think of it as a food and recreational vacation/retreat for 30 days. Stay home or head to the gym or a walk/run/swim/ fresh air. Don’t keep temptations in the house. Meditate and read a book. Spend quality alone time with yourself. Unplug and detox. It’s only 30 day…you can do it and reap the rewards. And finally…have a plan for day 31 and beyond.

  • I love whole 30. I lost almost 20lbs last year and kept it off an entire year! Now I’m trying to incorporate Keto and Whole 30 noticing how certain foods affect my body and triggers migraines.

  • She probably had reasonably good gut health to start. Her changes were not super dramatic. Someone with really unbalanced gut health and bacterial over growth will have much more dramatic numbers, in a positive way.

  • I think that it´s not real Whole30, there were too many things which aren’t allowed in this program. For me it´s not clean W30, sorry…

  • I lost over ten pounds doing this for one month really works I was never hungry lost the crave for the sugar… My skin was very clear this is now my go to diet!!!

  • Whole 30 is legit! I’m doing it for the second time. I sleep better and feel more energetic. I miss my beer but 30 days goes quick.

  • No snacking unless you’re breastfeeding or working out. No recreating unhealthy foods using whole30 ingredients that you used to eat like a smoothie bowl. I love that people are trying the whole30 but wish people/accounts would read all of the rules and actually follow them before they influence others to do it incorrectly. Also it’s not a diet it’s a reset. But hey at least people are trying it. #foodfreedom

  • I want to try this so bad just to see if I have any food sensitivities. I’ve had GI problems since I was a freshman in high school. I know there is a number of causes such as stress and genetics but the fact that I eat pretty healthy now and still have issues kills me. Wonder if some of it could be attributed to certain grains or dairy. I’m pretty sure I am allergic to lentils as I had a beef and lentil soup one time and it irritated by throat and now I’m afraid to try anything new like quinoa or couscous.

  • Comments like below is why I hate Whole 30. It’s already so strict with the base rules. Then there’s all those little rules the creator added and people are so uppity about it

  • Hey girl, loved the video. I felt the same way you did (upset stomach daily, bloated constantly) and recently adopted a modified-paleo diet. I feel AMAZING and have more energy than I have in years. The more research I have done about the history of grains in the human diet, the more it makes sense to me personally to cut them out.

  • I’m an Independent Consultant with Arbonne, and we have a 30-days to healthy living program that I would love to see you review and compare to this challenge!

  • I’d advise anyone thinking of undertaking the Whole30 to fact-check some of the bold claims they make.

  • Looks like you had a great experience trying Whole30! To be honest though, some of the things you showed that you were eating are not compliant. There are things that are still against the rules even if the ingredients are technically compliant. All that being said, I would love to know which Hum vitamins are 100% compliant. I had to cut them all out on my round and would like to know before I start my next one if any are safe.

  • That’s not really an “elimination diet.” That’s something different altogether, designed to introduce one food at a time in an attempt to identify allergens. That’s frightening that you can become a registered dietician without knowing exactly what the fuck that is.

  • Havnt don’t Whole 30 but I do want to try it sometime. I started counting macros a year ago. Lost 30lbs in 5 months. And after I realized there’s about 100 calories in a shot of alcohol I rarely drink it anymore. And I’m 26.

  • I have done whole 30 myself, and it has been a Nice expérience. Results?
    Glowing skin was the most outstanding outcome
    No cellulite at all (not that I normally have a lot, but skin consistency was better)
    Leaner figure (again, not that I am chubby, but sometimes a bit bloated)
    Lots of créativity in the kitchen, lots of colourful stuff, fresh veggies and making time for food.

    IT is something Nice to try. Weight LOSS was à couple of kilos, but I had no weight to loose and during my whole 30 i was eating quite a lot.

    That being said, for me elimianting pulses and Brown Rice is a NoNoNo!
