The Whole30 program is simple and it works! During these 30 days eat whole foods and eliminate sugars, grains, legumes, dairy and alcohol from your diet; and avoid weighing and measuring yourself. Try these recipes and follow these strategies to help you along the way.
Eat Foods With “Satiety Breaks”
“Satiety breaks"–like protein and fat–are found in foods like meat, eggs and fish. They help you lose weight and control your blood sugar.
Find New Sources of Sweet
Drink rooibos tea if you crave something sweet. It’s naturally decaf and rich in flavor, so it helps break your after-dinner sweet treat habit in a satisfying and healthier way.
Find the Right Balance of Fats
Choose at least one source of fat per meal. Plain old butter is not allowed because of its milk proteins. Instead, choose clarified butter (also known as ghee when you buy it in stores). It’s easy to make–melt the butter on low temperature so that the fat and milk solids separate, then filter out the milk solids. Clarified milk doesn’t need to be refrigerated, so it will last you a long time.
Avoid inflammatory fats like seeds, seed oils, peanuts, corn, sesame, certain nuts and nut butters.
