    I have a coworker who loves this, so I decided to check it out. I read it out loud to my husband on a long road trip last spring, and we agreed to give it a try. It's an adjustment to change eating habits so drastically, but we've both experienced health benefits since we did it-weight...

    Hodnocení bude až tak za měsíc, až s manželem dokončíme naše Whole30. Jsem na to dost zvědavá. Jako celoživotní bojovník s atopickým ekzémem beru každé zlepšení :-)Update po měsíci a půl:Whole30 máme s manželem ...

    I read this in preparation for doing their plan starting next week, so I don't feel like I should rate the book until I've completed the 30 days. That said it makes nutritional sense, has a nice layout, and the sauce recipes!!! It's so hard to find good sauce recipes without a ton of a...

    If there was an option for zero stars this book would take the cake! Oh wait, cake isn't allowed. Neither are peas, vanilla extract, or even making "unhealthy" things from their compliant ingredients.This book does not have anything in it besides some good recipes that would even make ...

    My five star rating is for content not literary merit. The authors have a wonderful clarity in providing the rationale for eating unprocessed food. I feel (momentarily) convinced. I believe I may try their 30 day plan - but I probably will not begin until late September because I've go...

    The Whole30 is an extreme paleo diet that claims to improve everything from joint pain to AHDH to sleep apnea. Regardless of how truthful that is, the diet itself is deceptively simple: it’s the food version of a juice cleanse. The end-goal of the diet is to break addictions to un...

    I loved and appreciated Melissa's sarcastic, tough, no-nonsense writing throughout this book. She has an answer for every question and if there's a website filled with a support system, resources, and even more recipes and answers.Whole30 is not a diet, it's a lifestyle- this mantra is...

    The only reason I give it a four stars is because as a mom of three and Canadian I can see already how it could be tricky for me to get some of the cleaner meats or approved snacks that help make this reset more doable. Otherwise it's beautiful, well laid out, covered all its basis and...

    Read for Fun (Physical Book)Overall Rating: 3.50Helpful Rating: 3.50Recipe Rating: 3.50First Thought when Finished: I think The Whole 30 would appeal to those with an expanded veggie/meat pallet and would be easy to follow. For me though there just wasn't enough variety to stick to lon...

    Will update with a star rating when I've cooked more of the recipes - so far, the Walnut-Crusted Pork Tenderloin is decent. This is pretty basic cooking, written for an audience who perhaps has rarely or never had to cook for themselves and doesn't really know the first thing about coo...
