We’re less than 24 hours from the official launch of our site-wide August Official Whole30! And, with new guidelines, a revised version of It Starts With Food, and much more coming your way, this may just be the most exciting Whole30 ever.
Before we kick everything off, we wanted to remind you of a few things:
New Whole30 Program Guidelines!
White potatoes (and red, purple, fingerling, baby, Yukon gold, sweeet, and any other variety your healthy heart desires) are now game-on during your Whole30! But that doesn’t mean potato chips or French fries are good choices this month… or any other month, for that matter. Be sure to read the article for details. We’ve also made an exception to the “no added sugar” rule to allow for the dextrose in iodized table salt.
A New Edition of It Starts With Food!
We’ve also revised our New York Times bestselling book It Starts With Food to reflect the Whole30 program rule changes, and clean up a few other things—though 95% of the book is basically the same. (Read this article for our full Author’s Note explaining the changes.) The book also gets a new clean, modern look, so it fits nicely in with the gorgeous rebranding we’ve done to our Whole9 website. You can order the new version on Amazon, or just make note of the Whole30 rule changes and use your original book for reference.
So. Much. Support.
Did you know we have all the Whole30 resources you need to complete the program successfully right on our homepage? There’s a button for new Whole30′ers, which takes you through the basics of the program and points you to all the most important helps we have. There’s a button for returning Whole30′ers, which reminds you of the basics and takes you to some extra resources we think are helpful for you. There’s even a place to go if you need some extra support this month, including our free forums—a great way to ask your questions and stay connected to others who are in this right alongside you.
Finally, today is the last day to register for our Whole30 Daily Emails starting August 1st!
The Whole30 Daily newsletter subscription is a day-by-day guide through your 30 days, packed with resources, troubleshooting, tips, and accountability. (There’s also a sweet reward for each successful day you complete—bonus!) In a recent survey of more than 1,000 subscribers, 94% said the daily emails helped them stay committed to their Whole30 program, and 99% said they’d recommend the emails to someone new to the program.
