    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 first third alone is a 'quick' rehash of Whole30. There are a few bright spots - I really...

    I can sum up the book like this: When your diet has become unhealthy and/or you don't feel amazing, do the Whole30 again. ...

    Reading this as a four-year, many-times Whole30 veteran, I think this book will be very helpful for newcomers. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone doing (or thinking of doing) their first Whole30. So why only 4 stars? It frustrated me that the "food freedom" nirvana she speaks of reachi...

    This was one of the best health books I have ever read! I love how it gives you very practical guidelines on how to start a healthy lifestyle and it helps you with navigating all the social pressures of food! Those chapters really helped me! This book can be for anyone that wants to em...

    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 informati...

    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 books but was interested in this one, as I find myself continuing to label my food choic...

    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 fa...

    not a lot of new practical information. Not convinced she still does not have an eating disorder although I still love her and the whole 30 ...

    Nothing groundbreaking for me. The idea is something I'd come to myself: reset, reintroduce, and then continue to tweak my judgments about what is and isn't worth it. If I slip into poor habits, reset again. She mentions lots of things I am interested in, but not in depth: mindfulness,...

    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 ab...

    This book was perfect to read during my first Whole30. I've been following Melissa Hartwig for a while on Instagram and her humor and straightforward tone shines in this book. This book may not be for people who are already know a lot about Whole30. It also may not be for people wh...

    Two Melissa Hartwig audiobooks down, and 45 days following her food advice, and I have to say, I'm a fan! I've read a lot of diet and nutrition books, but I don't think I've ever laughed so often while reading one. Granted, I listened to this, and part of it is her deadpan delivery, bu...

    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 ...

    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 new level of general health is achieved. I don't have "bad habits, guilt or anxiet...

    Pretty darn convincing... ...

    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 redundant points. ...

    I'm so happy I read this book. I'm on day 30 of my second Whole30 and I am happy to have all the information this book provides. It really helps connect the dots between resets and every day healthy food choices. ...

    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. ...

    I wish I had read this during my first round of W30. I failed spectacularly on the reintroduction phase. Even though I successfully completed three rounds in 2 yrs, I realize now that I wasn't really thinking of the process in way that would change my relationship with food - I was onl...

    Good strategies I love the approach Melissa takes in Food Freedom Forever. Every time I?ve tried to get healthy before, I?ve found it hard to have any middle ground. I?m looking forward to experiencing true food freedom. ...

    A great read that addresses how to take the benefits and knowledge the Whole 30 can bring to your life into the REST of your life in a sustainable, less restrictive way. Here's to enjoying "worth it" foods in a healthy way! ...

    I'm a bit biased: I love everything Melissa writes. I'm a Whole30 enthusiast - but I'm also someone who has struggled with food my ENTIRE LIFE. So much of what she said here clicked for her - including how social food is how much willpower life takes (before you even think about food)....

    I?m a big fan of Melissa Hartwig and the Whole30, and I came to Food Freedom Forever while doing my first Whole30. Food Freedom Forever is the ?what comes next? part of Whole30?how you manage your daily eating decisions outside the rules of the Whole30 program. Much of what...

    I have been singing the praises of the Whole30 for about three years now. It's a great program, and I love that it is completely free to anyone who wants to give it a try. No special food, shakes, or supplements to buy. No gimmicks or meetings to attend. Just real food for 30 days. ...

    I REALLY wanted to like this book. I've enjoyed reading the other books in the W30 line-up, but this one, not so much. You can find a lot of this information elsewhere in the W30 empire - Facebook feeds, W30 forum, blogs by people doing the W30. So, I guess if you haven't read around &...

    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...

    Really interesting way of reviewing your attitudes toward food. ...

    Great tips. Can't wait to use them. ...

    I picked this up at the recommendation of a friend who is a Whole30 coach. I am following her Facebook page and enjoying all the recipes and food tips she's posted, so I trust her judgment about the book recommendation. I have not, however, done a Whole30 reset before, so after reading...

    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 first third alone is a 'quick' rehash of Whole30. There are a few bright spots - I really...

    I can sum up the book like this: When your diet has become unhealthy and/or you don't feel amazing, do the Whole30 again. ...

    Reading this as a four-year, many-times Whole30 veteran, I think this book will be very helpful for newcomers. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone doing (or thinking of doing) their first Whole30. So why only 4 stars? It frustrated me that the "food freedom" nirvana she speaks of reachi...

    This was one of the best health books I have ever read! I love how it gives you very practical guidelines on how to start a healthy lifestyle and it helps you with navigating all the social pressures of food! Those chapters really helped me! This book can be for anyone that wants to em...

    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 informati...

    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 books but was interested in this one, as I find myself continuing to label my food choic...

    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 fa...

    not a lot of new practical information. Not convinced she still does not have an eating disorder although I still love her and the whole 30 ...

    Nothing groundbreaking for me. The idea is something I'd come to myself: reset, reintroduce, and then continue to tweak my judgments about what is and isn't worth it. If I slip into poor habits, reset again. She mentions lots of things I am interested in, but not in depth: mindfulness,...

    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 ab...

    This book was perfect to read during my first Whole30. I've been following Melissa Hartwig for a while on Instagram and her humor and straightforward tone shines in this book. This book may not be for people who are already know a lot about Whole30. It also may not be for people wh...

    Two Melissa Hartwig audiobooks down, and 45 days following her food advice, and I have to say, I'm a fan! I've read a lot of diet and nutrition books, but I don't think I've ever laughed so often while reading one. Granted, I listened to this, and part of it is her deadpan delivery, bu...

    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 ...

    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 new level of general health is achieved. I don't have "bad habits, guilt or anxiet...

    Pretty darn convincing... ...

    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 redundant points. ...

    I'm so happy I read this book. I'm on day 30 of my second Whole30 and I am happy to have all the information this book provides. It really helps connect the dots between resets and every day healthy food choices. ...

    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. ...

    I wish I had read this during my first round of W30. I failed spectacularly on the reintroduction phase. Even though I successfully completed three rounds in 2 yrs, I realize now that I wasn't really thinking of the process in way that would change my relationship with food - I was onl...

    Good strategies I love the approach Melissa takes in Food Freedom Forever. Every time I?ve tried to get healthy before, I?ve found it hard to have any middle ground. I?m looking forward to experiencing true food freedom. ...

    A great read that addresses how to take the benefits and knowledge the Whole 30 can bring to your life into the REST of your life in a sustainable, less restrictive way. Here's to enjoying "worth it" foods in a healthy way! ...

    I'm a bit biased: I love everything Melissa writes. I'm a Whole30 enthusiast - but I'm also someone who has struggled with food my ENTIRE LIFE. So much of what she said here clicked for her - including how social food is how much willpower life takes (before you even think about food)....

    I?m a big fan of Melissa Hartwig and the Whole30, and I came to Food Freedom Forever while doing my first Whole30. Food Freedom Forever is the ?what comes next? part of Whole30?how you manage your daily eating decisions outside the rules of the Whole30 program. Much of what...

    The author has this weird way of trying to sound like a contemporary person, but not quite succeeding, like she took a class in "how kids these days talk" but hasn't had any hands-on experience. She says in the beginning of the book that she prides herself on never using emojis -- ...

    I have been singing the praises of the Whole30 for about three years now. It's a great program, and I love that it is completely free to anyone who wants to give it a try. No special food, shakes, or supplements to buy. No gimmicks or meetings to attend. Just real food for 30 days. ...

    I REALLY wanted to like this book. I've enjoyed reading the other books in the W30 line-up, but this one, not so much. You can find a lot of this information elsewhere in the W30 empire - Facebook feeds, W30 forum, blogs by people doing the W30. So, I guess if you haven't read around &...

    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...

    Really interesting way of reviewing your attitudes toward food. ...

    Great tips. Can't wait to use them. ...

    Nothing groundbreaking for me. The idea is something I'd come to myself: reset, reintroduce, and then continue to tweak my judgments about what is and isn't worth it. If I slip into poor habits, reset again. She mentions lots of things I am interested in, but not in depth: mindfulness,...

    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 ab...

    This book was perfect to read during my first Whole30. I've been following Melissa Hartwig for a while on Instagram and her humor and straightforward tone shines in this book. This book may not be for people who are already know a lot about Whole30. It also may not be for people wh...

    Two Melissa Hartwig audiobooks down, and 45 days following her food advice, and I have to say, I'm a fan! I've read a lot of diet and nutrition books, but I don't think I've ever laughed so often while reading one. Granted, I listened to this, and part of it is her deadpan delivery, bu...

    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 ...

    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 new level of general health is achieved. I don't have "bad habits, guilt or anxiet...

    Pretty darn convincing... ...

    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 redundant points. ...

    I'm so happy I read this book. I'm on day 30 of my second Whole30 and I am happy to have all the information this book provides. It really helps connect the dots between resets and every day healthy food choices. ...

    I wish I had read this during my first round of W30. I failed spectacularly on the reintroduction phase. Even though I successfully completed three rounds in 2 yrs, I realize now that I wasn't really thinking of the process in way that would change my relationship with food - I was onl...

    Good strategies I love the approach Melissa takes in Food Freedom Forever. Every time I?ve tried to get healthy before, I?ve found it hard to have any middle ground. I?m looking forward to experiencing true food freedom. ...

    A great read that addresses how to take the benefits and knowledge the Whole 30 can bring to your life into the REST of your life in a sustainable, less restrictive way. Here's to enjoying "worth it" foods in a healthy way! ...

    I'm a bit biased: I love everything Melissa writes. I'm a Whole30 enthusiast - but I'm also someone who has struggled with food my ENTIRE LIFE. So much of what she said here clicked for her - including how social food is how much willpower life takes (before you even think about food)....

    I?m a big fan of Melissa Hartwig and the Whole30, and I came to Food Freedom Forever while doing my first Whole30. Food Freedom Forever is the ?what comes next? part of Whole30?how you manage your daily eating decisions outside the rules of the Whole30 program. Much of what...

    The author has this weird way of trying to sound like a contemporary person, but not quite succeeding, like she took a class in "how kids these days talk" but hasn't had any hands-on experience. She says in the beginning of the book that she prides herself on never using emojis -- ...

    I have been singing the praises of the Whole30 for about three years now. It's a great program, and I love that it is completely free to anyone who wants to give it a try. No special food, shakes, or supplements to buy. No gimmicks or meetings to attend. Just real food for 30 days. ...

    I REALLY wanted to like this book. I've enjoyed reading the other books in the W30 line-up, but this one, not so much. You can find a lot of this information elsewhere in the W30 empire - Facebook feeds, W30 forum, blogs by people doing the W30. So, I guess if you haven't read around &...

    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...

    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 first third alone is a 'quick' rehash of Whole30. There are a few bright spots - I really...

    I can sum up the book like this: When your diet has become unhealthy and/or you don't feel amazing, do the Whole30 again. ...

    Reading this as a four-year, many-times Whole30 veteran, I think this book will be very helpful for newcomers. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone doing (or thinking of doing) their first Whole30. So why only 4 stars? It frustrated me that the "food freedom" nirvana she speaks of reachi...

    This was one of the best health books I have ever read! I love how it gives you very practical guidelines on how to start a healthy lifestyle and it helps you with navigating all the social pressures of food! Those chapters really helped me! This book can be for anyone that wants to em...

    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 informati...

    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 books but was interested in this one, as I find myself continuing to label my food choic...

    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 fa...

    not a lot of new practical information. Not convinced she still does not have an eating disorder although I still love her and the whole 30 ...

    Nothing groundbreaking for me. The idea is something I'd come to myself: reset, reintroduce, and then continue to tweak my judgments about what is and isn't worth it. If I slip into poor habits, reset again. She mentions lots of things I am interested in, but not in depth: mindfulness,...

    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 ab...

    This book was perfect to read during my first Whole30. I've been following Melissa Hartwig for a while on Instagram and her humor and straightforward tone shines in this book. This book may not be for people who are already know a lot about Whole30. It also may not be for people wh...

    Two Melissa Hartwig audiobooks down, and 45 days following her food advice, and I have to say, I'm a fan! I've read a lot of diet and nutrition books, but I don't think I've ever laughed so often while reading one. Granted, I listened to this, and part of it is her deadpan delivery, bu...

    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 ...

    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 new level of general health is achieved. I don't have "bad habits, guilt or anxiet...

    Pretty darn convincing... ...

    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 redundant points. ...

    I'm so happy I read this book. I'm on day 30 of my second Whole30 and I am happy to have all the information this book provides. It really helps connect the dots between resets and every day healthy food choices. ...

    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. ...

    I wish I had read this during my first round of W30. I failed spectacularly on the reintroduction phase. Even though I successfully completed three rounds in 2 yrs, I realize now that I wasn't really thinking of the process in way that would change my relationship with food - I was onl...

    Good strategies I love the approach Melissa takes in Food Freedom Forever. Every time I?ve tried to get healthy before, I?ve found it hard to have any middle ground. I?m looking forward to experiencing true food freedom. ...

    A great read that addresses how to take the benefits and knowledge the Whole 30 can bring to your life into the REST of your life in a sustainable, less restrictive way. Here's to enjoying "worth it" foods in a healthy way! ...

    I'm a bit biased: I love everything Melissa writes. I'm a Whole30 enthusiast - but I'm also someone who has struggled with food my ENTIRE LIFE. So much of what she said here clicked for her - including how social food is how much willpower life takes (before you even think about food)....

    I?m a big fan of Melissa Hartwig and the Whole30, and I came to Food Freedom Forever while doing my first Whole30. Food Freedom Forever is the ?what comes next? part of Whole30?how you manage your daily eating decisions outside the rules of the Whole30 program. Much of what...

    The author has this weird way of trying to sound like a contemporary person, but not quite succeeding, like she took a class in "how kids these days talk" but hasn't had any hands-on experience. She says in the beginning of the book that she prides herself on never using emojis -- ...

    I have been singing the praises of the Whole30 for about three years now. It's a great program, and I love that it is completely free to anyone who wants to give it a try. No special food, shakes, or supplements to buy. No gimmicks or meetings to attend. Just real food for 30 days. ...

    I REALLY wanted to like this book. I've enjoyed reading the other books in the W30 line-up, but this one, not so much. You can find a lot of this information elsewhere in the W30 empire - Facebook feeds, W30 forum, blogs by people doing the W30. So, I guess if you haven't read around &...

    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...

    Really interesting way of reviewing your attitudes toward food. ...
