On Toronto Star’s list of Canada’s Bestselling Books of 2016 (Health and Fitness)
Praise for The Whole 30:
“The Whole30 has transformed the lives of thousands of people around the world. I can’t recommend this program highly enough.”—Chris Kresser, New York Times best-selling author, Your Personal Paleo Code
“The Whole30 will change your relationship with food for a lifetime.”—Eva Twardokens, two-time U.S. Olympian, alpine skiing
“The Whole30 is an easy-to-use, step-by-step guide designed to get you to your Primal or Paleo goals with ease, convenience, and the greatest possible enjoyment of food and life.”—Mark Sisson, creator of the Primal Blueprint and MarksDailyApple.com
“The Whole30 is a game-changer. Good-bye, low energy, chronic pains, and muffin top! I’ve never felt better, stronger, happier, or more energized.”—Michelle Tam, New York Times best-selling author, Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans
“With this book, you can give yourself or someone you love the essential tools to a healthier, happier life. If nothing else has worked for you, try The Whole30.”—Robb Wolf, New York Times best-selling author, The Paleo Solution
“Need some tough love cleaning up a lousy diet? Dallas and Melissa Hartwig ask that you enlist in their 30-day boot camp—and you’ll emerge a brand new person.”—The Los Angeles Times
“Here is the nutrition book we’ve been waiting for. It Starts with Food gives us common sense and counseling to help you break through the barriers and figure out your own optimal diet.” —Emily Deans, M.D., Harvard Medical School
“I have done the Whole30 and prescribe it to my patients … In my clinical practice, I have had patients lose weight, lower the amount of insulin they need to take by up to 80%, lower their hemoglobin A1c by three full points in three months, improve or completely resolve symptoms of brain fog, fatigue, and chronic pain. More importantly, patients look and feel better when they eat this way.”—Luc Readinger, M.D. VMH Family Practice and Complementary Medicine
"I use the Whole30 protocol in conjunction with acupuncture in a wide range of patients, from those looking for relief from a specific pain complaint to those suffering from more amorphous diagnosis (chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, insomnia, etc.). I’ve had over 30 patients complete the Whole30 as part of their treatment plan. I have had two rheumatologists and a neurologist contact me to find out what kind of magic I am performing on their patients! I’ve also seen extremely good results using the Whole30 protocol in post-surgery patients who are not yet ready for active rehab. It gives them a tool to hasten their recovery and also manage post-surgical inflammation in a way drugs simply cannot.”—Duncan Macdonald, L.Ac., San Francisco, CA
“The Whole30 is by far one of the best programs available to help individuals learn how and why to make the best food choices. While Dallas and Melissa’s information is based on credible scientific references, the information is presented in an easy-to-understand and captivating manner. There are thousands of testimonials available that give credit to this program’s success, and I highly recommend it.”—Stephanie Greunke, R.D.
“I love this program and recommend it to all my chronic pain patients. I’m typically not one to jump on any bandwagons but I truly think the research and what I have seen in my clinical experience speak for themselves. Thank you Whole30 for improving my life and the lives of my patients.”—Matthew Lane, D.C. F.I.T. Muscle & Joint Clinic
