Do you desire to loose weight without starving yourself, feel better, gain more energy, develop healthier eating habits for you and your family, help with specific body ailments, stop taking specific medications? If you answered yes to any of those questions I invite you to join me for a 30 day health challenge starting March 1st. The name of the program that I will be following is called Whole30. In a nutshell, on this 30 day program you eat animal protein, vegetables, good fats, and fruits. You omit sugar, grains, dairy and legumes from your diet. The point of the program is to heal your gut and help you to kick cravings for foods that are everything but healthy for your body. You can read this book or get the kindle edition written by the creators of the program. It is a very informative read. This cookbook also has wonderful recipes for the program, I have tried a few and they were delicious. You can also visit the Whole30 official website to get more detail.
I feel it necessary to say that I am a Christian, not a fact I try to hide. So while the authors of this program may have different views and choice of words than me, I cannot deny that the program itself is very effective. I am fully convinced that God is concerned about the whole person, so it is our Christian duty to make good choices for better health. As the scriptures says in 3 John 1:2, Dear friend, I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit.” With that said, I am so excited about starting the Whole30 and it sure would be awesome if you joined me. Please leave a comment if you plan to join me on this challenge.
