When you stick to an eating plan for just one month, you will not only change your mindset but your taste buds as well.

For many people, when they think about eating whole, they think about eating clean, and that’s true, but there is a certain level of eating whole that goes beyond simply eating clean. If the paleo diet is eating clean, then the Whole in 30 level of eating would be like paleo on steroids. Have you heard of the popular whole 30 movement? Those who follow this make the determination that for 30 days, they would eat an extremely strict diet full of healthy vegetables and meats in the hopes that they will allow their bodies to reset. At the end of this 30 days, many claim that when they try to add food back into their system, their bodies will now react differently to that food than before. Many people are surprised to find that foods they once loved no longer agree with them, likewise many people find foods they once hated are now the foods they can’t seem to live without.
When you decide to go whole 30 days, you decide to give your body a chance to get back to basics and reset itself from months, possibly even years of poor eating habits. So many times, we are simply going through the motions of our daily lives. We eat foods that we are used to eating but pay no attention to their actual nutritional value. Over time, this can cause a wide range of health problems and even long-term illnesses. This is why it is so important that we get in tune with our bodies, and the way our bodies react to the foods that we eat.
Right now, 30 days might seem like a long time, it might even seem like an eternity. But if you really think about it, it’s amazing to know that 30 short days can wipe away months, even years, of poor eating habits. When given the right amount of time, the body can do amazing things. Right now, your body is likely spending a majority of its time digesting foods that it was never meant to digest in the first place. But when you know simple tricks to giving your digestion a break, and you make the commitment to do that for 30 days, then your body is able to stop focusing on digestion and start focusing on truly cleaning itself. For you, this will likely lead to more energy, less illness, clearer skin, and most importantly a return to true health.
