Hello From A New Whole30 Coach!

Hello From A New Whole30 Coach!

Have you heard of the Whole30 program? You may have stumbled across the books while meandering through Target, read about it in a new article, or scrolled through some pictures on Instagram. It’s no secret that the Whole30 program has brought individuals fantastic results, though does require some hard work! The Whole30 coaching program was announced in August of 2017 in order to help support individuals through this tough journey on a personalized level. As soon as I heard about the Whole30 coaching program, I knew it was something I was meant to do! And a few months later, I am proud to announce that I am one of the newest Certified Whole30 Coaches!

Why I chose to be a Certified Whole30 Coach:

As a dietitian, I am trained to teach people about therapeutic diets to improve their health or manage chronic diseases. But I always felt like there was something missing in the traditional form of diet education. This was, of course, until I found the Whole30 program. It forces individuals to face their physical and mental battles with food head-on, which is why it can be so successful. I believe it helps teach life-long habits better than the traditional “everything in moderation” advice.

Why having a coach may be beneficial:

Changing years and years of habits can be hard. The food industry has perfected the science of making us want more of the foods that can make us less healthy (i.e. added sugars, added salt, and added fats….while delicious, these additives provide little to no nutritional value). And our emotions and traditions around food run deep (think- those special rolls only your grandma makes, or your go-to glass of wine after a stressful day at work). A Whole30 coach can support you every step of the way, and help you identify habits and find alternatives that you may not have thought of on your own.

The Whole30 program also requires time to prepare in order to be successful. A coach can help take off some of the stress of planning. Lastly, you may face obstacles such as staying compliant on an airplane ride, dealing with family that is not on board, or facing social events without making a scene. A Whole30 Certified Coach has likely been through this situation before or helped someone else through it!

But isn’t the Whole30 program so restrictive?

I believe this is one of the biggest misconceptions of the Whole30 program. During the 30-day reset, foods are temporarily removed in order to create a new “baseline”. After the 30 days, foods are systematically reintroduced to help establish if your body and mind tolerate these foods. If so, great! Keep eating them as a part of your normal routine. If you find your body does not respond well (i.e. you start feeling bloated, have aches/pains, headaches) or your emotions start to go off track (i.e. food cravings, low energy), then you now have the knowledge and the power to choose foods that keep you feeling your best! Long story short, the Whole30 is NOT intended to be a “Whole365”. A Whole30 coach can help walk you through this process and find your perfect balance of Food Freedom.
