People Try The Whole30 Elimination Diet


– It’s like I’ve swallowed a bowling ball. – For five minutes, I will feel like the most amazing I’ve ever felt. And then the next five
minutes, I will feel like a giant piece of shit. – I’m gonna (beep) crack. (laughs) (soft music) – [Narrator] The Whole30 is meant to be a short-term nutrition reset. For 30 days, participants cannot consume real or artificial added sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, dairy,
or additives, such as MSG. Commonly reported benefits of the program include higher energy and
more mental focus and clarity. – Today we embark on
the Whole30 challenge. I’m so excited. (laughs) – I know the premise is
pretty much whole foods. Like fresh things, real things. – I feel like Whole30 is
just going to really push me. – I’m half terrified. I’m the first person in the cookie jar. And the last. – I’ve been feeling like crap lately, and I think it’s just
because I’m eating like crap. It would be pretty cool
to know what it feels like to be a human running on clean nutrients. – I know that at the end
of it, people have said they feel more awake, they sleep better, their skin is better. Everything about their life is better. I want that part. But I know to get there, it’s going to be a whole lot of pain. (soft music) – [Everyone] Hi. – I’m so stoked for you. – Really? – Yes, at the end of it,
you’re going to feel so good. So, you’re going to sleep a lot better. It’ll be easier for you to fall asleep. And it’s longer.
– Why? Because we have no energy? – It’s called lightly dying. (laughing) – It’s like, you have these 30 days. See how you feel and then take the lessons that you learned from
it and apply it to life. I liked that part about
it because it’s not like, I’m Paleo, I can’t eat this forever. It’s like, no I’m doing this for 30 days. I’m going to see how it makes me feel and then I’ll decide if I want to put it back in my diet or not. They say if you’re hungry,
you’re doing it wrong. You should be feeding yourself enough. And if that means having three
to four eggs for breakfast, then that’s what you
need to do for your body. – I think of anything,
forcing yourself to read what’s in products as
well is so terrifying, that after awhile, you’re
like, I can’t believe I’ve been eating all
this shit for so long. – We’ll do that at the grocery store. We’ll see what’s actually in stuff. – Bananas, of course. – [Jazz] Don’t question me. (soft music) – I’ve never bought these
many vegetables ever at once. – We can have salt. I’m really excited for
my hard boiled eggs now. Yay. – It’s interesting we’ve
only used this part of the store so far. No one has gone into any of the shelves and processed foods yet. Because we can’t. – Bread, I’ll miss you. (soft music) – I just made breakfast, and now I think I’m going to be late for work. But here it is. – I’ve kind of been okay
with what’s going on. What I would normally eat,
I would eat only two eggs, but I was like, four, because I’m trying to stay as full as possible. – Realizing how versatile eggs are. You need a snack on the go? Egg city, man. – [Jared] Lunch on fleek. It’s not quite a tortilla, but
it’s kind of close I guess. – I’m only just done and I
immediately have to poop. – So I wake up and the first thing I was thinking was food, of course. And I’m about to boil four eggs today. – We’re at the farmer’s market. So health. – So health, vegetables. (crinkling) There’s free Indian food today and Indian food’s my favorite. – I had a really bad sleep and nightmares. (soft music) – I can’t believe it’s only been a week of Whole30 so far. – It has felt like 30 days. (laughs) This is shit. – My energy levels have kind
of been all over the place, just like my emotions. – I’ve had three food
nightmares in seven days. What the (beep)? – I am fitting into these
shorts a little bit better than I did last week, so that’s exciting. Here’s to two more weeks of this. Three, how many? No. I want it to be over. – Once you get past the first week hump, I would say it gets so much easier. There’s this thing called tiger blood that Whole30 people get, yes. So, you get this surge of energy where you feel like you can do everything. – Today was the first day that I woke up for my six AM workout. I honestly was feeling really
energized and really good. – It’s a beautiful, sunny day. And I’m out and about. Normally I’d be at my desk. – Niki and I made ghee the other day and it turned out amazing, and
it was a third the cost of what it was at the store. So, that was pretty dope. I’ve been explaining to
her how great ghee is, and she hasn’t been cooking
with it because it costs so much money at the store.
– So much. – [Jared] So, we’re going to try to make our own from scratch. It seems easy enough. – [Niki] It’s butter. It’s ghee. (gasps) – What’s it smell like? – Candy. – I feel like the main
way to be successful with this diet is preparing meals ahead, preparing ingredients ahead, and kind of making things yourself when you can, because it’ll be a lot cheaper than buying pre-made stuff at the store. – What I’m really liking about the Whole30 is that it’s forcing me
to start cooking again. Although I am obviously
shopping a lot more for food, I’ve saved a lot of money. I tend to drink when I go out. I tend to eat out a lot. – I think I’m struggling more mentally than I am physically, and
it’s kind of wearing me down. (upbeat music) (soft music) – I was on Facebook earlier and I saw this Goodful recipe for salmon
and potatoes and asparagus. It looked really good and
there’s no added sugar or anything, so it’s
totally Whole30 approved. Since I have to cook for
myself every day anyway, we might as well give it a go. Salt, pepper, thyme. Classic salmon friend. That looks great, I’m excited. Okay, let’s do it. (soft music) We make the glaze now. Oh no, I’m getting seeds. (soft music) Man, I miss bread. Nice Jared, you’re killing it. Bye salmon, good luck. (ticking) Oh my god, those potatoes look bomb. It’s a little hot. It’s a lot of food. This will last me at
least two to three meals, which that’s pretty dope. I’m so proud. I mean, I put it on a pan and I cooked it and it didn’t die, so. – Alls I (beep) want
is chocolate and bread. I’m gonna crack. – [Lindsay] I’m having chocolate almonds. – Get out of here, Lindsay. Get out of here. – [Lindsay] Don’t get your gross almonds in my chocolate almonds. – Temptation is everywhere. I just took my car into the shop and they offered me donuts and candy. I was not expecting that and it really caught me off guard. (soft music) – I feel like I haven’t complained much, but I’m definitely going to now. This is a giant cookie. (laughs) – I just ate lunch and I just want to eat french fries and chicken nuggets. – Almost impossible
for me to get work done because all I can do is think about bagels and donuts and corn. – Today my team is going
to Universal for the day. This is going to be a
struggle to find food. – We just had a big steak dinner. We decided to go on an evening walk. I feel really good actually. – Me too. – So first day back on my
stationary bike since we started this whole thing. I have so much energy. – I know different diets are
good for different people. I wish I could say that I
felt 100% better, but I don’t. – Nice, healthy lunch. I’m really hungry today. (soft music) – Yesterday was a really
tough workout with Jill. Last week I could barely
move up and down stairs and today, that’s not the case, so I guess that’s progress. (soft music) – So, it’s been a week since the Whole30 challenge has been over. – When it ended, I had put so much hope onto Day 31, that I honestly didn’t know what to do with myself. I ordered all the stuff
that I wanted to eat that was gluten and dairy and rice. And then my body felt like (beep). – At the beginning of this experience, I was super excited to cook every day, and I was having a really good time experimenting in the kitchen. I just got so tired of it. – I think it was nice
to try something new, and to see how much I could handle. And that obviously wasn’t a lot. – Often these challenges are a choice. I saved all of my money by not drinking and not eating outrageous meals and it was a few hundred dollars. – So, Whole30 is supposed
to make you rethink your relationship to food,
and I think it did do that, in terms of how I consume
food, how I should be consuming whole foods
and cooking for myself and prepping for myself,
and thinking really critically about what I put into my body. That’s something that I don’t
think is going to go away, so I’m going to continue doing that. – I am going to go have a
beer and a tequila shot. (soft music)

    Screw this diet!
    Go on a Whole Foods Plant Based vegan diet instead!!

    It’s great!!!

    Also, I’m asian too.
    There’s a lot of asian food out there that’s vegan.
    Tofu, stir fried vegatables, RICE, and etc….

    lol stop pushing this gay agenda; we get it; some people are gay or bi or want to be transexual; no need to have an entire video filled with them

  3. Jacob Beren

    so that was a waste of 30 days and 10 min of video. you didn't get the point at all. Why are you all so desperate for donuts and chicken nuggets? You're adults, eat like you care about yourselves, how many of these fad diets, quick fixes and 30 day workouts are you going to do before you learn that your body is in need of care

    All they do is whine the whole time about cravings and how they can't eat what they want – welcome to a life with food allergies/intolerances. I also want bread and sweets like chocolage but I can't eat them. Has been my life for 8 years or more. So I have no sympathy for their sad whiney faces when they're out and can't eat things they want. It must have been challenging to go through but still.

    I tried whole 30 and I had to stop after two weeks because it literally destroyed my digestive system. I’ve been eating healthier since and not eating sugar. Whole 30 dosent work for everyone and that’s okay 🙂

  6. Shan Lee

    Currently avoiding sugary snack, fried foods, only wheat bread, and eating more salad. I’m sooooo tired and weird to avoid my usual takeout. I’ll do my best ❤️

    None of these people have families to support. I would be very interested to see people with a spouse and kids try this diet. I'm seriously considering this diet, but if I didn't eat something my wife cooked, she would be PISSED.

  8. Nanette Roux

    Okay, maybe I'm missing something but this "diet" is how I eat every day – not because I have to but that's just normal eating. I mean, that salmon dish is a staple for dinnertime in my house. How poor is their diet that this is a difficult challenge??

  9. kzthryn thangjam

    I feel really triggered seeing how much they depend on junk food! They needed this whole30 in their life. I love junk food too but I've not eaten it in more than 3 months and I've not cracked once. They should really appreciate whole foods more.

  10. roxxylala26

    Yeah, we can all agree their job's food options were toxic as hell for what they captured on camera. Obviously it's a ChOICE..but u can't beat that type of sugary temptations. They def need to improve on that.

  11. Jack K

    You're supposed to diet plan and meal prep to last an entire week of eating. Otherwise you will get mentally burned out. Duh.

  12. Amina Beyer

    ok well maybe its just an european thing but thats just a normal diet nothing that special about eating veggies and eggs jesus

  13. owleyes71

    For me it was seeing that sugar was in EVERYTHING. I think the issue with Whole30 in the beginning is kicking the sugar. Annd you guys did it wrong lol…you're supposed to reintroduce foods slowly and by item and not at the same time to see how they react to your body. The whole point of Whole30 is to reduce inflammation…that's why they cut out the food items they do, they are generally the most likely to cause digestion and inflammation.

  14. Reem Assaff

    ima pounce at the creator of this diet. Why are legumes restricted??? wtf legumes are as whole as you can get. hope no one watches this and thinks its a good idea. Eat real food and junk in moderation and live your life.

  15. Glendalough V

    WHITE potatoes are NOT allowed on Whole30, ONLY sweet potato. You need to read the list of allowed foods. If you are eating white potato you failed and need to start it over.

  16. Stephanie Kashino

    Not cool, before I watched this, it played an ad for Magnum ice cream with the hard chocolate top you crack through…tryna set me up for failure, psh >:(

  17. Emily West

    The main point of whole30 is the reintroduction faze, which they completely skipped. No wonder she felt so bad after eating junk food on day 31
