“It Starts With Food” Book Review + Whole30 Update

So as some of you know, last week I said I would start Whole30. I only had information from their website and figured I’d try it out. Well, it was a major fail because I wasn’t fully prepared or invested. I knew I wanted to read the book that goes over Whole30 first. So I decided to buy It Starts With Food (Only 10 bucks on your nook or kindle!).

I love the book. It gets right into the science behind your food choices, and how it affects your body and hormones. There are so many things food can play a role in, such as sleeping issues, skin issues, digestive issues, and more. I highly recommend anyone interested in the science behind food to pick up this book. They give a lot of analogies too so it’s not too “science-y.”

Starting today, I am doing Whole30. The book went over a lot of great stuff that really motivated me. I had a delicious mushroom and egg omelette this morning, and had some tuna, mixed greens, strawberries, and avocado for lunch. I know 30 days will be hard, but as the book says, it’s a reset for your body and your hormones. I can’t wait to see how I feel at the end of the 30 days!

For those of you who told me you have tried Whole30, what are some of your favorite recipes?

  1. Glad you read the book! I’m still going strong ….. stayed clean all last week (lol I sound like I’m a drug addict). I can’t believe it but I haven’t had chocolate, peanut butter, candy or any sort of sugar, oatmeal, protein shakes….yogurt in two and a half weeks! I feel great and some of my eating habits have changed. Good luck and I look forward to seeing your updates.
