Praise for IT STARTS WITH FOOD: "I've read plenty of healthy eating books, but this is the one that makes the most sense." --Andrew Zimmern, James Beard Award-winning chef and host of Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods "Here is the nutrition book we've been waiting for. It Starts With Food gives us common sense and counseling to help you break through the barriers and figure out your own optimal diet." --Emily Deans, M.D., Harvard Medical School "This book provides the nutritional foundation to help my athletes achieve their performance goals, while guiding my everyday clients towards radically improved health and quality of life." --Eva Twardokens, two-time U.S. Olympian and six-time National Champion, Alpine Skiing Testimonials: "Need some tough love cleaning up a lousy diet? Dallas and Melissa Hartwig ask that you enlist in their 30-day boot camp--and you'll emerge a brand-new person." --The Los Angeles Times "I have done the WHOLE30 and prescribe it to my patients. In my clinical practice, I have had patients lose weight, lower the amount of insulin they need to take by up to 80%, lower their hemoglobin A1C by three full points in three months, and improve or completely resolve symptoms of brain fog, fatigue, and chronic pain. More importantly, patients look and feel better when they eat this way." --Luc Readinger, M.D., VMH Family Practice and Complementary Medicine "I use the WHOLE30 protocol in conjunction with acupuncture in a wide range of patients, from those looking for relief from a specific pain complaint to those suffering from more amorphous diagnosis (chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, insomnia, etc.). I've had over 30 patients complete the WHOLE30 as part of their treatment plan. I have had two rheumatologists and a neurologist contact me to find out what kind of magic I am performing on their patients! I've also seen extremely good results using the WHOLE30 protocol in post-surgery patients who are not yet ready for active rehab. It gives them a tool to hasten their recovery and also manage post-surgical inflammation in a way drugs simply cannot." --Duncan Macdonald, L.Ac., San Francisco, CA "The WHOLE30 is by far one of the best programs available to help individuals learn how and why to make the best food choices. While Dallas and Melissa's information is based on credible scientific references, the information is presented in an easy-to-understand and captivating manner. There are thousands of testimonials available that give credit to this program's success, and I highly recommend it." --Stephanie Greunke, R.D. "I have been using the WHOLE30 with my patients, and have seen some amazing and exciting results. One patient in particular has lost 20 pounds, and her most recent lab studies show a normal A1C, increased HDL, and lower overall cholesterol and LDL. She also was able to completely resolve her non-ulcer dyspepsia without the need for medications. For those patients that are compliant with the recommended program I have seen similar results. I have spent many hours reading and reviewing your program and I feel it is a no-nonsense approach to nutrition that covers all the macro- and micro-nutritional needs for people." --Chad Potteiger, D.O., ABIM certified Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine
