Our Participants Say
"I was nervous to do this. Now, I’m nervous to go off it!
The Facebook page was useful and I really found the Zoom calls helpful. I didn't feel alone. I felt like I could contact both of you for help and support.
I lost 11 pounds, and I’m at a new set point to continue to lose weight and make better choices. My energy is steadier, my moods more stable, the aging spots on my face lightened. Many of my symptoms improved: tinnitus, irritability, sinuses, brain fog.
This great program has lots of support and information, you both are responsive and real, this is a great opportunity to reset."
"Before I did this program I had inflammation. I’m now feeling better. I really enjoyed the food and the recipes. I would recommend this to others!"
"During this program, I had less hunger and irritability, and better sleep. It did not feel like I was on a diet. I lost a few pounds as well!
I would recommend this to others because of the support, accountability, and educational resources – all are fantastic reminders as to “why” we do this."
"Before I did this program I thought it would be challenging to eliminate foods, especially grains and legumes. I was curious to see how restrictive I would find the diet to be, and if I would see/feel any results. I really felt good overall, no bloating or stomach aches, and slept like a baby!
I liked the accountability, the mix of professional information and advice from you two, and the support and sharing in the Facebook group.
I think most people in the Western world would benefit from a dietary reset like this. Many have probably got used to their stomach issues without knowing they could be caused by food."
"Before this program, it seemed like so long without my latte. I did it! I can live without so many things I thought I needed. I liked feeling trimmer and losing a few extra pounds. I would recommend this program – it is so beneficial for overall health!"
"I was a bit dubious about this program, but also hopeful that I would find some relief and lose weight. It was easier and more freeing than I had thought it would be. I attribute that in many ways to the group approach.
I especially liked that I stopped berating myself for what I was eating. I felt nourished more often. I had very little gas, and I livened up the variety of fruits and veggies from the old standards.
I enjoyed the way I felt and the support that was made available by the group leaders and the other women. I also appreciated the accountability factor. I would recommend this to others. The support was key and having such expert guides to illuminate the path and answer questions was incredibly helpful."
"This was my first Whole30, I didn’t know what to expect. I liked the inspiration and accountability to stick to it! And recipe ideas. I learned new recipes, that I’m keeping in my weekly/monthly rotation! I would most definitely recommend this! The resources and recipes provided were so helpful and inspiring."
"I thought this program would be more stressful than it was during Covid. I went in with a different mental state and it was easier than I expected. The best part was the support and being able to ask questions as needed. The biggest benefit was more energy. I would recommend this because it’s a great way to figure out how foods are affecting your body and energy levels."
"I’ve done the Whole30 twice before so I knew what to expect. Here the accountability, daily online check-ins and structure helped with the accountability piece I was lacking the two times I’ve done it solo. The benefits I received this time were no more cramping, gas and significantly reduced diarrhea. This is a great elimination program for figuring out food sensitivities. It can also provide a reset if you’ve gone off the shitty eating cliff. Thanks for your support!"
"Before I did this I really was a blank slate. I knew nothing of what Whole30 really meant but was intrigued and hopeful that it could have a meaningful and positive impact on my eating habits and life. My hopes were fulfilled! I experienced a removal of cravings, control of my mind and appetite, boost in energy, stability (no mood swings and reduced anxiety), and losing 15 lbs definitely doesn’t hurt!
This changed my entire outlook on food in such a short period of time. 30 days seems like a lot, but it flew by and made me realize that this approach to food and eating so much more sustainable than I imagined. Everybody should give themselves the opportunity to feel this amazing! The content was perfect, I loved the Zoom meetings, and on Facebook, I really enjoyed the sense of community and it helped a lot knowing everybody was a message away."
"I had heard Whole30 was really hard and awful. While it was work (lots of planning, prepping, cooking) it wasn’t that hard. There is such a short period of time when you don’t feel well, but I understood it was detox. Overall I’m just so impressed.
I experienced increased energy, libido, and decreased bloating and perimenopausal symptoms. I would absolutely recommend this program. The support, meal planning, and education are what makes it so easy to be successful."
"Before doing this I thought that I would be starving for 30 days. I was also nervous about the extra time in the kitchen. That one did turn out to be hard for me but 4 weeks later that has gotten easier as I’ve found better tricks to prep for my family. At first, I was truly hungry at mealtimes but not uncomfortable. I was eating nuts and either raisins or applesauce after dinner so that I wouldn’t feel starving throughout the night but now I find that I don’t need that. The meal plan/grocery list takes time but my husband and I agreed that it is worth it to take that time each week rather than winging it. I liked the meal plans, the grocery lists, the quick snack ideas, the sense of community, the Zoom meetings to ask questions, and the fact that other people were experiencing the same successes and challenges as me.
I'd recommend this program! I think this is more than a reset for gut health. It is a kitchen/cooking/organizational challenge that leaves you feeling empowered and in control of your entire week."

MORE ABOUT KIRSTEN AND LAURA
Kirsten Redding is currently completIng the Whole30 coach certification program.
She has led Whole30 online support groups for five years and uses this food approach personally. Kirsten has three boys under five, and after her second pregnancy, she was diagnosed with Hashimoto's autoimmune thyroid disease. She largely manages this diagnosis with a food-first approach.
For Kirsten, the Whole30 is about getting in touch with what so many of us are so sadly disconnected from - working with whole foods, preparing meals, eating seasonally, and reading labels.
Kirsten explains that this way of eating has nothing to do with weight loss or societal expectations. Rather, it’s about connecting to the rhythm of cooking and consuming food to heal and maintain optimal health as well as help as many people she can to achieve the same goal.
Dr. Laura Paris, DACM, is an acupuncturist, functional medicine practitioner, and certified nutrition consultant. She specialized in Women's Health.
She has long been an advocate of food and nutrition and is living successfully with a 20-year old diagnosis of aggressive Rheumatoid Arthritis. She attributes her health largely to diet, nutrition, and hacking her gut microbiome. It's Laura's passion to guide others on therapeutic nutrition paths.
Laura has long wanted to provide a guided food program for her patients and followers – so that all women can transform their hormones, regulate their blood sugar, and improve their gut health through easy, delicious food. It's VERY hard to change food habits alone with no support. It's Laura's passion to provide the education and support that women need to change habits and make them stick.
