We avoid a lot of things to not gain those extra inches, double chins or belly fat? As a substitute, we intake a lot of things rather than seeing if those things are healthy or not. Whole30 is a month-long detox plan that has been in trend for a long time.
What Is the Whole30 Diet?
This program is about intaking good food as a diet like seafood, portions of meat, vegetables, fruits and poultry items. Basically, the food items that have natural fats in it. So, you don’t have to keep an eye on calories. Just eat good food without any cheat days.
This diet restricts you from eating protein items like tofu, soya and lentils. Also, dairy and carbs that is bad. And it is a no-sugar and no-MSG diet, that’s a good thing.
Many experts say that not every diet works for everyone, this diet works well for non-vegetarians and can cause deficiencies for vegetarians. Diets adopted from the west need to be modified as per our nutritional needs.
Should One Follow This Diet?
The Whole30 diet has gone big internationally, working for many fitness enthusiasts and professionals. Back home, many nutritionists don’t seem convinced because experts feel that even we could see weight loss but it’s unhealthy. Anything that is not sustainable is unhealthy.
After following this diet for a month, you may see losing a lot of weight. Once, you quit you may gain a lot more. It is believed everything needs to be done in moderation.
Eliminating cereals, dairy and legumes may lead to deficiencies of micronutrients in the body like vitamin B, calcium, Vitamin C etc. and that’s the reason experts don’t recommend it as a part of healthy living.
And in a country like ours, where most people are vegetarians, this diet is not practical and can’t be followed. So, this Whole30 is more successful in the west because of high meat consumption.
