It’s almost here… the release of Whole30 co-founder Melissa Urban’s highly anticipated new release, Food Freedom Forever: Letting Go of Bad Habits, Guilt, and Anxiety Around Food, is just around the corner. (Tuesday, October 4th, to be precise.) Monday’s article focused on the topic of food freedom, and what it means to Melissa. And if you’ve read the back cover copy or seen the pre-order bonus content videos*, you know that Melissa spends a significant amount of time discussing her three-part plan for obtaining and sustaining food freedom in “life after” your Whole30 reset.

Translation: How to make the healthy habits, relationship with food, and Tiger Blood you developed during your Whole30 actually last well beyond the 30 days.

But there’s an entire section in Food Freedom Forever that we haven’t talked about yet: Friends, Family, and Food. Three chapters designed to help you talk to people in your life about your new, healthy lifestyle in a way that brings you closer together, not further apart. While this topic probably could have been its own book, and you may not expect a book about food freedom to dive into your relationships, you’ll be happy this section is here, and we guarantee you’ll reference the sample conversations outlined here all the time when explaining your Whole30 reset and food freedom to those you care about.

To give you an idea of the material covered in this section, here is a short video clip from the Food Freedom Forever video shoot (Salt Lake City, UT with Circa3 Video Production). Watch, get inspired, and get ready for your Food Freedom, coming October 4th.
