The eagerly awaited follow-up to the New York Times and Globe and Mail bestselling The Whole30 The critically acclaimed Whole30 program and the New York Times bestselling The Whole30 has led millions of people to better health and effortless weight loss, along with stunning improvements in sleep quality, energy levels, mood, self-esteem, and reducing cravings to achieve "food freedom" over the course of a 30-day challenge. While The Whole30 includes a strategy for systematically reintroducing ingredients such as dairy, legumes, and grains once the 30-day cleanse is over, devoted fans are often asking the same question upon completion: What do I do now? Though many people repeat it from time to time, the Whole30 was never meant to be a plan you stay on indefinitely, and that's why Food Freedom Forever is so important, offering solutions to permanently end the exhausting cycle of yo-yo dieting, uncontrollable cravings, and a slew of health complaints. In a 3-part plan, author and Whole30 co-creator Melissa Hartwig shows you how to discover food freedom for yourself, no matter how out of control you feel; to walk a self-directed path that will keep you in control for months on end; to gracefully recover when you slip back into old habits; and to create the kind of food freedom that stays with you for the rest of your life. Best of all, there is no requirement that you've completed the Whole30 to benefit from the potentially life-long solutions of Food Freedom Forever....

Food Freedom Forever: Letting Go of Bad Habits, Guilt, and Anxiety Around Food Reviews
I picked this up at the recommendation of a friend who is a Whole30 coach. I am following her Facebook page and enjoying all the recipes and food tips she's posted, so I trust her judgment about the book recommendation. I have not, however, done a Whole30 reset before, so after reading about half the book, I have decided not to finish right now. I'd like to do more research and prep and do a Whole30 before coming back to finish this book, which seems to be written to help Whole30-ers continue th ...more
I've done Whole30 and eat about 80% Paleo. I read this book because I love the Whole30 concept and the way it uses non-inflammatory foods to address aches and pains caused by inflammation. In addition, a new level of general health is achieved. I don't have "bad habits, guilt or anxiety around food," but I am very mindful of what I eat. This book, in a nutshell, says that if you are comfortable with what your food choices, feel free to occasionally deviate if it seems worth it. Ok. Thanks, I wil ...more
FIRST--my 2 star rating does NOT apply to the concept of Whole30. I totally believe in and endorse the Whole30 concept, and I have greatly benefited from what I learned through completing a Whole30.
The reason this is 2 stars, for me, is because there really isn't any new information here. If I had bought this book, I would feel a little taken advantage of because all of this information can be found in Whole30 blogposts. The first third of the book is a quick rundown of what the Whole30 is, whi ...more
I completed a Whole 30 last year and was ridiculously happy with my results; I was sleeping better, making healthier choices, and just plain felt better about myself.
Then life happened, as it tends to do, and I fell off the wagon face first into a vat of bad habits, as I tend to do when stressed, and here we are: back to sleepless nights, rock bottom energy, and cravings that are beyond out of control.
Honestly, this book couldn't have been checked out to me at a more opportune time. I've been re ...more
The Whole30 program is about eliminating a lot of foods for 30 days and recording how you feel, such as having less digestive problems, being more energetic, and feeling less moody. It's not about eliminating "bad" foods. For example, dairy is both good and bad. It provides nutrients like calcium, potassium, and vitamin D. However, it can also cause diarrhea, gas, and bloating for people who are lactose intolerant. Also, wine is both good and bad. Studies have shown that a moderate consumption o ...more
A great read that addresses how to take the benefits and knowledge the Whole 30 can bring to your life into the REST of your life in a sustainable, less restrictive way. Here's to enjoying "worth it" foods in a healthy way!
Really interesting way of reviewing your attitudes toward food.
Two Melissa Hartwig audiobooks down, and 45 days following her food advice, and I have to say, I'm a fan! I've read a lot of diet and nutrition books, but I don't think I've ever laughed so often while reading one. Granted, I listened to this, and part of it is her deadpan delivery, but you've gotta love a woman who says, "if you want your next meal to be vodka and ice cream sandwiches, it can be!" (or words close to that) She says this in the context of explaining a 12-step-like, one-meal-at-a- ...more
