WHOLE 30 DIET

Have you tried the whole 30 diet? This new diet trend has become popular for those wishing to sleep better, have more energy, and reduce food cravings and bloating. But what is this diet all about?

Whole 30 eliminates processed and refined sugars and carbohydrates for 30 days to stabilize the body’s energy throughout the day and night. The diet is based on the idea that simple sugars in foods like juice, desserts, white bread, pastries, and some fruits like grapes and mango are processed quickly and lead to a spike in blood sugar. Excess insulin released to handle the blood sugar then causes sugar levels to drop, leading to inconsistent energy and food cravings.

In contrast, the whole 30 diet relies on complex carbohydrates in whole foods like vegetables, nuts, and most fruits. These sugars are accompanied by fiber that slows digestion and keeps  sugar and energy levels more stable throughout the day. For this reason, the whole 30 diet may help diabetics better control their blood sugar.

If you don’t want to commit to the full 30 day diet but find the idea interesting, consider reducing processed and refined sugars from your diet and instead replacing them with natural complex carbohydrates to gain some of the benefits of the whole 30 diet.
