The Whole 30 Diet

A friend of mine started the Whole 30 diet about a month ago. The diet eliminates grains, sugar, dairy, legumes, and alcohol, with the end goal being that after 30 days your body will be “reset”. This diet works by ‘self-diagnosing” health problems associated with those foods but also promises higher energy levels and better quality sleep. My question for the class is: Would more energy and sleep be worth it to you to cut those items out of your diet? I do not personally think I could do it.

  1. I like the idea of eliminating bad food for a whole month. The benefits of this diet are really appealing to me especially the more energy and better sleep part. However, I find that this might be difficult to do as a college student living on campus where my options might be limiting.

  2. I would do it. To me, wellness and health is more important than the taste of something. It does take a lot of self control and discipline to go on a diet like this one, but I believe the results would be great. It’s also a great opportunity for one to challenge his/her typical behaviors when it comes to eating.
