Editorial Reviews


“Food can play a powerful role in pleasure, health, and celebration—but it can also be a source of remorse and anxiety. In Food Freedom Forever, Melissa Hartwig explores how we can enjoy food, yet feel free from cravings and negative feelings. It’s a practical, realistic, compassionate—and even funny—guide to establishing a new relationship with food.”
—Gretchen Rubin, New York Times best-selling author of Better Than Before and The Happiness Project
“Eating clean can be tough, but Melissa makes it easy! Her philosophy truly works, without counting calories or being a slave to the scale. Her program, the Whole30, helped change my own philosophy on food and how I eat. Food Freedom Forever is a must-have for anyone who wants to make changes in their life. . .and make them last.”
—Molly Sims, model, actress, and lifestyle blogger

"I’m a huge fan of Hartwig’s Whole30 Program, and Food Freedom Forever picks up where Whole30 leaves off by tackling the mind-body connection as it pertains to your relationship with food. Our health and wellness goals are often sabotaged because we are at the mercy of our food…controlled by food addictions, unhealthy habits, even perpetual calorie counting that locks us into an obsessive tug-o-war. Food should be a source of sustenance and enjoyment, and Melissa helps bring the enjoyment back by providing tools, tips, and suggestions for creating an extremely personal prescription for healthy eating. I loved this book and truly think it can help anyone stuck on the treadmill of yo-yo-dieting and weight troubles.”
—Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint, publisher of 

Food Freedom Forever gives you everything you need for achieving dietary success, for today and for the rest of your healthy life. Melissa Hartwig’s information is spot-on in terms of scientific validity, and wonderfully approachable in terms of its implementation.”
—David Perlmutter, MD, author, #1 New York Times bestseller, Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar—Your Brain’s Silent Killers
“Step away from the calorie counting, food obsessions, and unnecessary restriction. In Food Freedom Forever, Melissa Hartwig delivers a sustainable, healthy diet that will fuel your mind, body, and spirit, and place you in control of your food for life.”
—Emily Deans, MD, Harvard Medical School
“I'm a ‘real food’ registered dietitian who believes the standard low-fat, high-carb, ‘everything in moderation’ advice is complete nonsense. Repairing our relationship with food is critical in order to live a happy life, and Melissa’s plan in Food Freedom Forever is exactly what does work for my clients. This is no crash diet, and it’s way more important than a weight loss plan—it’s the beginning of the rest of your life!”
—Diana Rodgers, RD, LDN, NTP

“Nutritionist Hartwig (The Whole 30) presents dieters with a guide to developing a healthier relationship with food. Organized into 14 easy-to-follow chapters with titles such as “Diets Don’t Work” and “Spot Your Triggers,” and written in a highly conversational and candid fashion, the book lays out a doable program designed to allow readers to gain a sense of control over their eating. The crux of the program, and where it begins, is with the process of eliminating troublesome foods linked to overeating and cravings. Upon completion of this strict 30-day period, dieters will reintroduce certain foods, one at a time, in order to identify which are most problematic. Though elimination diets are not new, Hartwig’s approach differs from others, such as J.J. Virgin’s Virgin Diet, in being primarily focused on psychological well-being rather than weight loss. Refreshingly, readers are assured that falling off the wagon is not failure, but just part of the process. Hartwig succeeds in making the case that seemingly uncontrollable desires for food truly can be conquered with hard work.”
Publishers Weekly

“Hartwig is a co-creator of Whole30, a program based on the elimination and reintroduction of potentially troublesome foods. This is not a diet, according to the author, but a lifetime plan aimed at stopping cravings, healing inflammation, and allowing eaters to savor and enjoy food without guilt. There are three parts to the plan: resetting (eliminating potentially troublesome foods, then reintroducing them systematically after 30 days), enjoying food freedom, and acknowledging slip-ups. Hartwig, a certified sports nutritionist, expands the original Whole30 structure by offering customizing options while still insisting on strict adherence to the chosen program. Hartwig supports her approach by citing scientific studies she interprets as demonstrating that the brain thrives on limited options. Promised results include less stress, better sleep, improved digestion, and more energy. What make this book particularly valuable are Hartwig’s emphasis on non-scale-oriented victories and her practical strategies for handling inevitable backslides, naysayers, and stubborn old habits. The prospect of food freedom is appealing, and Hartwig’s conversational style and no-nonsense stance make her plan seem doable. This is sure to be a popular purchase.”
