How the Whole30 diet was a wake-up call for my poor sleep habits
I’d heard all kinds of bizarre things can happen during a Whole30. Some of these cautionary tales came from online forums, the books, and random people I follow on social media. Nevertheless, in preparation for this 30-day temporary reset (turns out it’s not a diet at all) of fruits, vegetables, meats and unprocessed food, I bought my groceries, bookmarked a bunch of recipes, and steeled myself against the possible onslaught of hardcore cravings. However, the biggest surprise of my Whole30—one I wasn’t expecting—was how it called attention to how well I was sleeping.
