You might know that we have a handful (maybe more) of Whole 30 participants who are well into completing a “Whole 50″… meaning: they did the Whole 30 nutrition challenge and they got such great results that they just kept going with it. That can only mean one thing: IT WORKS. Here is how: we have a very potent physical stimulus with our training regimen. Show up often and put in some true effort. Is there a case that it could NOT work? YES, here is how: poor nutrition. Eat a diet high in carbohydrates… sugar is the main culprit but other starches unrestricted are a problem. Low fat is a problem. PUFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids- in the form of seed oils) are bad.
Worst case scenario: no training and poor diet, unmanaged stress and lack of sleep,
Ideal scenario: train hard 3-4 days a week (more if you can handle the volume, less if you also do some outside activity like surfing, yoga, or tennis). Eat a diet low in carbohydrates, high in fat. Sleep well and manage your stress.
There IS a middle ground. The first category here is for those who do not train but DO eat well. This is a very small minority of the population. The bigger group (brace yourself, because you MIGHT belong to this club) includes those who do get in 3-4 days of solid physical training each week but go unrestricted with eating practices. Beware, this could be you! If you are in the middle ground… caught in limbo- don’t despair, there is hope. Simply address the parts of the equation that are being ignored. Want assistance with this? Please ask- it is here for you.
