Food Freedom Forever: Letting Go of Bad Habits, Guilt, and Anxiety Around Food


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.

    So, I loved my Whole30 experience and have a serious girl crush on Melissa Hartwig, but I didn't love this book. The topic makes a great blog post thesis, but a 233 page book it does not make. The fir...

    I received this book at a very opportune time--when I was struggling to get back on my eating plan, which is very similar to the Whole30 reset that the author co-developed. I haven't read her other bo...

    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 f...

    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. T...

    I've done Whole30 and eat about 80% Paleo. I read this book because I love the Whole30 concept and the way it uses non-inflammatory foods to address aches and pains caused by inflammation. In addition...

    A nice jumping off point for making lifestyle dietary changes. A little repetitive and not the best written book but makes up for it in its conversational tone and tools. Some skimming needed over red...
