If I had to choose one oft discussed obstacle for most people, it is healthful eating hands down. While everybody faces their own challenges when it comes to meal and snack choices, the main theme for all is eating healthy all day long without having to think about or prepare for it. Diet fads are not something I typically recommend, but there's been an uprise in companies that prepare and ship/deliver whole, fresh and tasty foods pre-portioned for ease, right to your doorstep.
I was introduced to The Whole 30 Challenge last summer, during a company-wide summer shred challenge. While I did not enter the challenge (I would have had an unfair advantage), I followed the plan. Broken into 3 components, physical, social/emotional, and nutritional, I embraced each bonus challenge head on. For the nutritional aspect, the recommended plan was The Whole 30. Unfamiliar with this program, I dove right in after reading the concepts and philosophy. The website professes that this program is Life Changing. I actually agree. My goal was to lose about 4% body fat, Not only did that happen, I lost 5 pounds, kept it off, and have been able to maintain a much higher level of energy. The recipes are very easy and delicious, which isn't always the case with healthy food concepts.
I'm pretty particular about what I recommend for my clients. If it proves successful to me, and I do test everything before ever passing along, than it's a no brainer! So, If you're serious about your Wellness, and ready to make a firm commitment to your future health, give The Whole 30 a look and a try.
