    For people who want to whole30, but don't necessarily want to read all of the science-y stuff of why a whole30 is good for them, this is a great book. It answers a lot of questions about the whole30, covers just the basics of why a whole30 is good (if you want more in-depth, read "It S...

    I didn't read this book in-depth. I started out reading, realized that I would never be able to maintain a diet this stringent, and started skimming over parts. There is a lot of information in this book, from the basics (How to roast a whole chicken) to the creative (how to cook e...

    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...

    I can't tell you if The Whole30 is a healthy choice, although the Hartwigs give plenty of reasons why it is. What I can tell you is that I'm glad I did the 30 days and will hopefully eat better having done them. My hsuband and I did it together which was definitely helpful. The Whol...

    I was on the fence with whether or not to get this book. I have been eating paleo-ish for about 2.5 years so I was familiar with many recipes and figured the recipe portion would not be helpful. However, I wanted the book for the FAQ and guidance as we went through this challenge. ...

    I am drawn to nonfiction, health books in particular. I like reading them and I have read quite a few. First, I loved the voice of the author. It felt personal but pointed, which I appreciated. I liked that it felt she was sitting across the table. Overall, the diet aspect felt extr...

    To be clear, I really loved the two-page guide at the heart of Melissa and Dallas Hartwig's "Whole30" eating plan, which can be entirely and totally explained thusly: Spend 30 days eating nothing but meat, vegetables and fruit, in order to detox your body from all other edible items th...

    I'm on day eight of The Whole30 and so far so good. I've been grocery shopping more frequently than ever before. Breakfast is the hardest meal because I don't want to eat eggs without toast but I haven't cheated. I was tempted to add some regular butter to a bake potato the other day b...

    The Whole 30: The 30 Day-Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom is meant to be read after It Starts with Food. However, there's enough information in here that if you don't want to go through all the cited scientific "evidence" then this is a fine place to start if you are interested i...

    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 mantr...

    I have really enjoyed the recipes in this books so far. And also the brief explanation of the Whole30 concept. I have seen a lot of complaints about the book containing simple recipes like how to fry an egg, but when you are eating simple whole foods knowing how to prepare them well ma...

    EDIT (11/17/16): Fixed minor grammar problems. 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 en...

    I pre-ordered this book in January and received an advance copy. After having read It Starts with Food last year and participating in the Januray 2015 Whole30, I was still left with some lingering questions. This book will answer any and all questions you may have about completing the ...

    While reading this book I learned about healthy eating and new recipes to explore. This book is a healthy cook book which goes in depth about the science behind cooking. To be honest I did not follow every days meal but I did enjoy cooking some of the dishes with my family. I would rec...

    This book was very helpful in terms of tips and advice for doing the Whole 30 successfully. I enjoyed reading through the beginning of the book. Unfortunately, once I got to the recipe section of the book... I was less than impressed. Some of the staple recipes are helpful and I might ...

    If you are like me, you will do the Whole30 (or something like it) more than once. If you are on your 3rd round (like me), you may not get much from this book. That said, it's well written and obscenely simplified and detailed and really targets those who have NOT done a Whole30 yet, o...

    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...

    Excited to start my first Round of Whole30 next week! I?ll be honest, I?d heard so many people talk about this lifestyle change for awhile now, but my preconceptions were that it was just another diet trend geared toward all the meat and vegetables. I didn?t realize the whole the...

    Amazing! ...

    I'm not usually interested in diet books. But the Whole30 is not a weight loss diet. It's not even a healthier way of eating. It's only meant to last for 30 days. You can repeat the diet if you want to. But the whole purpose of Whole30 is to eliminate a wide number of foods that cause ...

    I grabbed this from the library to supplement some dietary changes I am making for GERD and overall health. I had heard good things and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I have several problems with the book, and the diet in general, however. - They promise this diet will ...

    Wait, didn?t I just review this book? Nope. So just this week, the ?It Starts with Food? authors released a slightly more and slightly less comprehensive guide to their elimination diet program. In this section they have less detail than their previous book, but they make f...

    This review is more about the actual program than the book itself. I did the Whole30 (the 30 days I marked as reading this book was actually me doing the program). I didn't have the crash or withdraw, but did notice some of the improvements they claim - like better sleep, more energ...

    I rated this book a 4 purely based off the fact that I read every single word (with the exception of the chapters that didn't pertain to me: feeding your kids following Whole30, pregnancy/nursing guidelines, and if you have certain illnesses) and I've never done that with this type of ...

    I'm on day eight of The Whole30 and so far so good. I've been grocery shopping more frequently than ever before. Breakfast is the hardest meal because I don't want to eat eggs without toast but I haven't cheated. I was tempted to add some regular butter to a bake potato the other day b...

    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-weig...

    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 mantr...

    I got this from my daughter for my birthday. She was inspired to buy it for me after experiencing sucess from following the regime herself and thought it may help me. It definately sounds promising, especially taking into account her and her friend's (that has also done it and see...

    EDIT (11/17/16): Fixed minor grammar problems. 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 en...

    I pre-ordered this book in January and received an advance copy. After having read It Starts with Food last year and participating in the Januray 2015 Whole30, I was still left with some lingering questions. This book will answer any and all questions you may have about completing the ...

    While reading this book I learned about healthy eating and new recipes to explore. This book is a healthy cook book which goes in depth about the science behind cooking. To be honest I did not follow every days meal but I did enjoy cooking some of the dishes with my family. I would rec...

    This book was very helpful in terms of tips and advice for doing the Whole 30 successfully. I enjoyed reading through the beginning of the book. Unfortunately, once I got to the recipe section of the book... I was less than impressed. Some of the staple recipes are helpful and I might ...

    If you are like me, you will do the Whole30 (or something like it) more than once. If you are on your 3rd round (like me), you may not get much from this book. That said, it's well written and obscenely simplified and detailed and really targets those who have NOT done a Whole30 yet, o...

    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...

    Excited to start my first Round of Whole30 next week! I?ll be honest, I?d heard so many people talk about this lifestyle change for awhile now, but my preconceptions were that it was just another diet trend geared toward all the meat and vegetables. I didn?t realize the whole the...

    Amazing! ...

    I'm not usually interested in diet books. But the Whole30 is not a weight loss diet. It's not even a healthier way of eating. It's only meant to last for 30 days. You can repeat the diet if you want to. But the whole purpose of Whole30 is to eliminate a wide number of foods that cause ...

    I grabbed this from the library to supplement some dietary changes I am making for GERD and overall health. I had heard good things and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I have several problems with the book, and the diet in general, however. - They promise this diet will ...

    Wait, didn?t I just review this book? Nope. So just this week, the ?It Starts with Food? authors released a slightly more and slightly less comprehensive guide to their elimination diet program. In this section they have less detail than their previous book, but they make f...

    This review is more about the actual program than the book itself. I did the Whole30 (the 30 days I marked as reading this book was actually me doing the program). I didn't have the crash or withdraw, but did notice some of the improvements they claim - like better sleep, more energ...

    EDIT (11/17/16): Fixed minor grammar problems. 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 en...

    I pre-ordered this book in January and received an advance copy. After having read It Starts with Food last year and participating in the Januray 2015 Whole30, I was still left with some lingering questions. This book will answer any and all questions you may have about completing the ...

    While reading this book I learned about healthy eating and new recipes to explore. This book is a healthy cook book which goes in depth about the science behind cooking. To be honest I did not follow every days meal but I did enjoy cooking some of the dishes with my family. I would rec...

    This book was very helpful in terms of tips and advice for doing the Whole 30 successfully. I enjoyed reading through the beginning of the book. Unfortunately, once I got to the recipe section of the book... I was less than impressed. Some of the staple recipes are helpful and I might ...

    If you are like me, you will do the Whole30 (or something like it) more than once. If you are on your 3rd round (like me), you may not get much from this book. That said, it's well written and obscenely simplified and detailed and really targets those who have NOT done a Whole30 yet, o...

    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...

    Excited to start my first Round of Whole30 next week! I?ll be honest, I?d heard so many people talk about this lifestyle change for awhile now, but my preconceptions were that it was just another diet trend geared toward all the meat and vegetables. I didn?t realize the whole the...

    Amazing! ...

    I'm not usually interested in diet books. But the Whole30 is not a weight loss diet. It's not even a healthier way of eating. It's only meant to last for 30 days. You can repeat the diet if you want to. But the whole purpose of Whole30 is to eliminate a wide number of foods that cause ...

    I grabbed this from the library to supplement some dietary changes I am making for GERD and overall health. I had heard good things and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I have several problems with the book, and the diet in general, however. - They promise this diet will ...

    Wait, didn?t I just review this book? Nope. So just this week, the ?It Starts with Food? authors released a slightly more and slightly less comprehensive guide to their elimination diet program. In this section they have less detail than their previous book, but they make f...

    This review is more about the actual program than the book itself. I did the Whole30 (the 30 days I marked as reading this book was actually me doing the program). I didn't have the crash or withdraw, but did notice some of the improvements they claim - like better sleep, more energ...

    I rated this book a 4 purely based off the fact that I read every single word (with the exception of the chapters that didn't pertain to me: feeding your kids following Whole30, pregnancy/nursing guidelines, and if you have certain illnesses) and I've never done that with this type of ...

    I didn't actually read this book from cover to cover, I used it to help me prepare meals for my husband's diet. He just completed this personal challenge and I'm so proud of him! ...

    For people who want to whole30, but don't necessarily want to read all of the science-y stuff of why a whole30 is good for them, this is a great book. It answers a lot of questions about the whole30, covers just the basics of why a whole30 is good (if you want more in-depth, read "It S...

    I didn't read this book in-depth. I started out reading, realized that I would never be able to maintain a diet this stringent, and started skimming over parts. There is a lot of information in this book, from the basics (How to roast a whole chicken) to the creative (how to cook e...

    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...

    I can't tell you if The Whole30 is a healthy choice, although the Hartwigs give plenty of reasons why it is. What I can tell you is that I'm glad I did the 30 days and will hopefully eat better having done them. My hsuband and I did it together which was definitely helpful. The Whol...

    I was on the fence with whether or not to get this book. I have been eating paleo-ish for about 2.5 years so I was familiar with many recipes and figured the recipe portion would not be helpful. However, I wanted the book for the FAQ and guidance as we went through this challenge. ...

    I am drawn to nonfiction, health books in particular. I like reading them and I have read quite a few. First, I loved the voice of the author. It felt personal but pointed, which I appreciated. I liked that it felt she was sitting across the table. Overall, the diet aspect felt extr...

    To be clear, I really loved the two-page guide at the heart of Melissa and Dallas Hartwig's "Whole30" eating plan, which can be entirely and totally explained thusly: Spend 30 days eating nothing but meat, vegetables and fruit, in order to detox your body from all other edible items th...

    I'm on day eight of The Whole30 and so far so good. I've been grocery shopping more frequently than ever before. Breakfast is the hardest meal because I don't want to eat eggs without toast but I haven't cheated. I was tempted to add some regular butter to a bake potato the other day b...

    The Whole 30: The 30 Day-Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom is meant to be read after It Starts with Food. However, there's enough information in here that if you don't want to go through all the cited scientific "evidence" then this is a fine place to start if you are interested i...

    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-weig...

    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 mantr...

    I grabbed this from the library to supplement some dietary changes I am making for GERD and overall health. I had heard good things and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I have several problems with the book, and the diet in general, however. - They promise this diet will ...

    For people who want to whole30, but don't necessarily want to read all of the science-y stuff of why a whole30 is good for them, this is a great book. It answers a lot of questions about the whole30, covers just the basics of why a whole30 is good (if you want more in-depth, read "It S...

    I didn't read this book in-depth. I started out reading, realized that I would never be able to maintain a diet this stringent, and started skimming over parts. There is a lot of information in this book, from the basics (How to roast a whole chicken) to the creative (how to cook e...

    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...

    I can't tell you if The Whole30 is a healthy choice, although the Hartwigs give plenty of reasons why it is. What I can tell you is that I'm glad I did the 30 days and will hopefully eat better having done them. My hsuband and I did it together which was definitely helpful. The Whol...

    I was on the fence with whether or not to get this book. I have been eating paleo-ish for about 2.5 years so I was familiar with many recipes and figured the recipe portion would not be helpful. However, I wanted the book for the FAQ and guidance as we went through this challenge. ...

    I am drawn to nonfiction, health books in particular. I like reading them and I have read quite a few. First, I loved the voice of the author. It felt personal but pointed, which I appreciated. I liked that it felt she was sitting across the table. Overall, the diet aspect felt extr...

    To be clear, I really loved the two-page guide at the heart of Melissa and Dallas Hartwig's "Whole30" eating plan, which can be entirely and totally explained thusly: Spend 30 days eating nothing but meat, vegetables and fruit, in order to detox your body from all other edible items th...

    I'm on day eight of The Whole30 and so far so good. I've been grocery shopping more frequently than ever before. Breakfast is the hardest meal because I don't want to eat eggs without toast but I haven't cheated. I was tempted to add some regular butter to a bake potato the other day b...

    The Whole 30: The 30 Day-Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom is meant to be read after It Starts with Food. However, there's enough information in here that if you don't want to go through all the cited scientific "evidence" then this is a fine place to start if you are interested i...

    If you are like me, you will do the Whole30 (or something like it) more than once. If you are on your 3rd round (like me), you may not get much from this book. That said, it's well written and obscenely simplified and detailed and really targets those who have NOT done a Whole30 yet, o...

    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...

    Excited to start my first Round of Whole30 next week! I?ll be honest, I?d heard so many people talk about this lifestyle change for awhile now, but my preconceptions were that it was just another diet trend geared toward all the meat and vegetables. I didn?t realize the whole the...

    I rated this book a 4 purely based off the fact that I read every single word (with the exception of the chapters that didn't pertain to me: feeding your kids following Whole30, pregnancy/nursing guidelines, and if you have certain illnesses) and I've never done that with this type of ...

    I didn't read this book in-depth. I started out reading, realized that I would never be able to maintain a diet this stringent, and started skimming over parts. There is a lot of information in this book, from the basics (How to roast a whole chicken) to the creative (how to cook e...

    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...

    I can't tell you if The Whole30 is a healthy choice, although the Hartwigs give plenty of reasons why it is. What I can tell you is that I'm glad I did the 30 days and will hopefully eat better having done them. My hsuband and I did it together which was definitely helpful. The Whol...

    I was on the fence with whether or not to get this book. I have been eating paleo-ish for about 2.5 years so I was familiar with many recipes and figured the recipe portion would not be helpful. However, I wanted the book for the FAQ and guidance as we went through this challenge. ...

    I am drawn to nonfiction, health books in particular. I like reading them and I have read quite a few. First, I loved the voice of the author. It felt personal but pointed, which I appreciated. I liked that it felt she was sitting across the table. Overall, the diet aspect felt extr...

    To be clear, I really loved the two-page guide at the heart of Melissa and Dallas Hartwig's "Whole30" eating plan, which can be entirely and totally explained thusly: Spend 30 days eating nothing but meat, vegetables and fruit, in order to detox your body from all other edible items th...

    I'm on day eight of The Whole30 and so far so good. I've been grocery shopping more frequently than ever before. Breakfast is the hardest meal because I don't want to eat eggs without toast but I haven't cheated. I was tempted to add some regular butter to a bake potato the other day b...

    The Whole 30: The 30 Day-Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom is meant to be read after It Starts with Food. However, there's enough information in here that if you don't want to go through all the cited scientific "evidence" then this is a fine place to start if you are interested i...

    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-weig...

    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 mantr...

    I have really enjoyed the recipes in this books so far. And also the brief explanation of the Whole30 concept. I have seen a lot of complaints about the book containing simple recipes like how to fry an egg, but when you are eating simple whole foods knowing how to prepare them well ma...

    I got this from my daughter for my birthday. She was inspired to buy it for me after experiencing sucess from following the regime herself and thought it may help me. It definately sounds promising, especially taking into account her and her friend's (that has also done it and see...

    EDIT (11/17/16): Fixed minor grammar problems. 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 en...

    I pre-ordered this book in January and received an advance copy. After having read It Starts with Food last year and participating in the Januray 2015 Whole30, I was still left with some lingering questions. This book will answer any and all questions you may have about completing the ...

    While reading this book I learned about healthy eating and new recipes to explore. This book is a healthy cook book which goes in depth about the science behind cooking. To be honest I did not follow every days meal but I did enjoy cooking some of the dishes with my family. I would rec...

    This book was very helpful in terms of tips and advice for doing the Whole 30 successfully. I enjoyed reading through the beginning of the book. Unfortunately, once I got to the recipe section of the book... I was less than impressed. Some of the staple recipes are helpful and I might ...

    If you are like me, you will do the Whole30 (or something like it) more than once. If you are on your 3rd round (like me), you may not get much from this book. That said, it's well written and obscenely simplified and detailed and really targets those who have NOT done a Whole30 yet, o...

    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...

    Excited to start my first Round of Whole30 next week! I?ll be honest, I?d heard so many people talk about this lifestyle change for awhile now, but my preconceptions were that it was just another diet trend geared toward all the meat and vegetables. I didn?t realize the whole the...

    Amazing! ...

    I'm not usually interested in diet books. But the Whole30 is not a weight loss diet. It's not even a healthier way of eating. It's only meant to last for 30 days. You can repeat the diet if you want to. But the whole purpose of Whole30 is to eliminate a wide number of foods that cause ...

    I grabbed this from the library to supplement some dietary changes I am making for GERD and overall health. I had heard good things and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I have several problems with the book, and the diet in general, however. - They promise this diet will ...

    Wait, didn?t I just review this book? Nope. So just this week, the ?It Starts with Food? authors released a slightly more and slightly less comprehensive guide to their elimination diet program. In this section they have less detail than their previous book, but they make f...
