The eagerly awaited follow-up to the New York Times and Globe and Mail bestselling The Whole30 The critically acclaimed Whole30 program and the New York Times bestselling The Whole30 has led millions of people to better health and effortless weight loss, along with stunning improvements in sleep quality, energy levels, mood, self-esteem, and reducing cravings to achieve "food freedom" over the course of a 30-day challenge. While The Whole30 includes a strategy for systematically reintroducing ingredients such as dairy, legumes, and grains once the 30-day cleanse is over, devoted fans are often asking the same question upon completion: What do I do now? Though many people repeat it from time to time, the Whole30 was never meant to be a plan you stay on indefinitely, and that's why Food Freedom Forever is so important, offering solutions to permanently end the exhausting cycle of yo-yo dieting, uncontrollable cravings, and a slew of health complaints. In a 3-part plan, author and Whole30 co-creator Melissa Hartwig shows you how to discover food freedom for yourself, no matter how out of control you feel; to walk a self-directed path that will keep you in control for months on end; to gracefully recover when you slip back into old habits; and to create the kind of food freedom that stays with you for the rest of your life. Best of all, there is no requirement that you've completed the Whole30 to benefit from the potentially life-long solutions of Food Freedom Forever....

Food Freedom Forever: Letting Go of Bad Habits, Guilt, and Anxiety Around Food Reviews
This book is exactly what I've been looking for. The Whole30 program is great, but it's the tiniest little blip of your whole life. This book tells you how to live with food and talk to people about food and make decisions about food. lt really gives you tools to make good decisions about food. This book is encouraging and gives me hope.
I'm kind of surprised at how much I got out of this book. I've done a few rounds of Whole30 and also of doctor-mandated elimination diets. I have no trouble following those because they are very black and white, no decision making involved. I also have no trouble remaining gluten free after 4 years since it does very severely affect me (I have other sensitivities that aren't so severe, where if I eat it, I might not feel great, but I also won't suffer as badly or for as long). Where my trouble i ...more
Very disappointed. This could have been 100 pages shorter, and it's extremely repetitive. I love the whole30 program for the very reason that it is not a regular "diet," but a way to examine one's physical and emotional relationship with food. However, this book reads like any other fad diet propaganda, right down to referring to certain behaviors as "naughty" and encouraging people to set rules like "no dessert for a month." I got the feeling that Melissa Hartwig just wanted to put something el ...more
Really interesting way of reviewing your attitudes toward food.
FIRST--my 2 star rating does NOT apply to the concept of Whole30. I totally believe in and endorse the Whole30 concept, and I have greatly benefited from what I learned through completing a Whole30.
The reason this is 2 stars, for me, is because there really isn't any new information here. If I had bought this book, I would feel a little taken advantage of because all of this information can be found in Whole30 blogposts. The first third of the book is a quick rundown of what the Whole30 is, whi ...more
The Whole30 program is about eliminating a lot of foods for 30 days and recording how you feel, such as having less digestive problems, being more energetic, and feeling less moody. It's not about eliminating "bad" foods. For example, dairy is both good and bad. It provides nutrients like calcium, potassium, and vitamin D. However, it can also cause diarrhea, gas, and bloating for people who are lactose intolerant. Also, wine is both good and bad. Studies have shown that a moderate consumption o ...more
I’ve been savoring it and heading to the part that I need the most. I love the Whole30 and I love Melissa Hartwig. So much.
Anyone who has ever struggled to lose weight or conquer food addiction, should read this book! I startled my Whole 30 journey before this book was published but it has given me so much insight into my eating habits and triggers. This is not a diet at all! This is truly and finally Food Freedom!!
