Personally, I've never followed the Whole30 diet, but I know If I had to choose a diet, I think it would be Whole30, because it's not so different from the way I eat all the days, with few exceptions, such as dairy products, cereals and legumes. Fortunately, these foods can easily be replaced by equally delicious foods, such as sweet potatoes, nut milk and lean meats.

What is Whole30

Although Whole30 is still considered a diet (that is, you can not eat certain foods), I like it to focus on the actual consumption of whole foods and the abandonment of foods. packaged and processed. quantity of meat, seafood and eggs, lots of vegetables and natural fats, fruits and a lot of herbs and spices to add flavor.Prohibited foods during Whole30 include:
Real and artificial sugar
Carrageenan, MSG and sulphates
Baked goods, junk food and other processed foodsFood you like on Whole30:
Lean protein like fish, chicken, eggs and lean ground beef and turkey
Healthy fats like avocado, olive oil, coconut oil and nut butter (but not peanuts)
Delicious winter vegetables such as sweet potato, spaghetti squash and Brussels sprouts
All the green vegetables you can imagine! Roquette, spinach, kale, broccoli
No matter what fruit you want, up to about 2 servings a day, taken with meals
