Not Your First Whole 30: Variations On a Theme

By Ruth | In Nutrition, Uncategorized | on January 4, 2016

We’re starting the Whole 30 on Monday, January 4th, but for some of you, this may not be your first rodeo. You may be thinking, “what’s in it for me this time?” While it’s worthy to repeat the Whole 30 from time to time since your body’s sensitivities may change with age, here are a few other variations to focus on. Each one has a different focus and are meant for evaluating and deciding what the best nutrition lifestyle is for you. None of these are meant to be crash diets, nor are you necessarily expected to maintain these for life.

21 Day Sugar Detox
Is sugar your demon? Do you find ways to satiate your sugar craving when you’re on a Whole 30 because you’re just that good at “paleoizing” your sugar intake (even when you think you’re coloring inside the lines). Diane Sanfilippo’s protocol restricts almost all fruit, sweet and white potatoes, cashews (and cashew butter), and winter squashes. But, it does allow certain grains (limited amount of white rice), legumes, and full-fat dairy. If you have done the Whole 30 before and know which of those your body tolerates, you can incorporate them into your meal plans.

If you feel like you weren’t able to eliminate inflammation in your body or still battled with autoimmune issues, avoiding potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants, and peppers (amongst other things) may be a good idea. Basically, you would eat Whole 30 and avoid these as well.

Autoimmune Protocol
If you know you have autoimmune issues and have already tried a Whole 30 (and eliminated nightshades), you may want to try avoiding nightshades, eggs, nuts, seeds (including coffee), fructose (no more than 20g/day), and any emulsifiers (like the ones found in most canned coconut milk)


If you tend to get bloated from eating foods like

  • apples, avocados, cherries, mangos, peaches, pears, watermelons, fruit juice and dried fruit

  • onions, garlic, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, artichoke, mushrooms, cauliflower

  • milk, yogurt, soft cheeses

it may be worth trying a low-fodmap diet to see how your digestive system adjusts.


Check out Whole 9’s shopping lists for specific ideas with these restrictions.
