Phase 6 – Part 2



In February 2015 I successfully finished the LEAP protocol. I now know how to deal with my food sensitivity issues and haven’t suffered from any symptoms in ages.

However, as my menu of food options grew, so did the number on the scale. I began to overindulge in my favorites (bread, chocolate, pasta, cheese) and slack off in the exercise department.

I needed something to get me back on track, motivated to cook, and into the good head-space I was in while doing LEAP.

Enter the Whole30.


It’s a month-long, clean-eating program that emphasizes eating real, whole, minimally processed foods. The Whole30 is based on the popular Paleo diet/lifestyle but is more strict. During the 30-day dietary reset, you eliminate added sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, and dairy. Basically the focus is to eat mindfully and consume things that are more healthful than harmful.

After reading about the Whole30, I thought it would be a good challenge to get out of my rut, back in the kitchen, on the path to making better health choices. Ryan decided to join me and I’m so glad he did!
