Has anyone done it? Anyone doing it for January?

I'm thinking about doing a whole 30 for January. Its fairly strict, but it's all whole foods and doesn't really require "special" foods. Its based on the book "It Starts With Food".

Anyone else?

EDIT:

The Whole 30 "rules" involve choosing:

healthy high quality protein (preferred grass fed and pastured/organic meats and eggs, wild salmon, no nitrates or sugars or fillers added to bacon, sausage, etc)

Lots of healthy fresh vegetables except no white potatoes

Healthy fats including olive oil, coconut oil and coconut, avocado

NO sugars, sweeteners, non calorie sweeteners, soy, food additives like carageenen

NO GRAINS, NO DAIRY

So the "requirements" of the whole 30 seem tricky in some aspects and fairly easy in some as well! I'm looking forward to giving it a trying it out! For me, I anticipate the hardest part to be some of the sneakier additives, like carageenen in my almond milk, etc.

Basically its all whole foods, but strictly restricts all grains, dairy, legumes, sweeteners (even the fake stuff) for 30 days. Its like a paleo elimination diet, but no restrictions on calories. Just lots and lots of good veggies, healthy grass fed beef and high quality protein, etc. No paleo/grain free versions of foods (ie no coconut flour pancakes).

never heard of it- but I don't do strict diets - I'll never stick to them!

For me, I think its actually sounding easier than many strict diets, this is all meats and veggies (some fruit, nuts as snacks as needed), no counting calories or points or anything like that.

It can be very hard to stick to it, but I think you'll be amazed at the results!

Thanks! I've been weaning off sugar and grains for a bit already, and reading a lot of paleo/whole 30 books to get ready! My brother sent me a bunch of resources, too. I didn't really want to go cold turkey. Today and Thursday I'll be doing some special grocery shopping, so I think I'll be ready to "start" my 30 days tomorrow, yay! (:
