Frequently Asked Whole30 Questions

What is Whole30?

Whole30 is a 30-day diet program that began back in 2009. Unlike some diets that require you to purchase specific brands and eat tasteless “substitute” foods, Whole30 encourages you to explore your pallet and cook real, natural food.

Whole30 is about far more than weight loss. In fact, the biggest goal of Whole30 is to determine any food sensitivities you may have that cause you discomfort or pain. The objective is to eliminate the food groups that cause themost digestive issues, including dairy and gluten, and explore how your body feels without them!

What Can You Eat on Whole30?

When you’re on Whole30, it’s important that you stick to Whole30 foods. Each time you break the diet and consume something on the “no” list, you’re expected to start the calendar over on day 1!

On Whole30, you can eat meat, seafood, and eggs. You can also eat vegetables and fruit. Finally, you can cook with natural fats, herbs, and seasonings.

There are also a few Whole30-approved exceptions worth knowing about.

As a dairy source, you can use ghee or clarified butter. There are a handful of legumes, including green beans and sugar snap peas, that make a list. You may also use salt, coconut aminos, vinegar, and natural fruit juice.

Are Bananas Whole30 Foods?

The simple answer is yes, bananas are allowed under the Whole30 rules! They are, after all, a fruit.

The best way to eat a banana on Whole30 is whole and either fresh or frozen. This is the safest way to follow their guidelines.

Admittedly, the official rules discourage the use of bananas in mock ice cream or healthy pancakes.

The thinking behind this is that you’re not unlearning to enjoy those foods. Let’s be real here, and say that no one’s learningnotto enjoy ice cream, and we have every right to a healthy alternative!

Are Whole30 and Keto Similar?

The only thing whole 30 dessert recipes and Keto have in common is that they are both diets. However, the objective of Keto is far different and involves a very different meal plan.

Keto is designed to push your body into ketosis, where your body burns fat for energy instead of carbohydrates.

On Keto, you are supposed to avoid carbohydrates, even natural ones in whole foods like apples. Instead, you are supposed to eat foods high in natural fat, such as cheese, avocados, and nuts.
