Staying physically active is essential to health - The Mayo Clinic recommends 150 minutes of fitness a week, but what you consume is equally, if not more, important.

After all, if you finish every run with two cheeseburgers, fries, and a shake, chances are slim that you’ll drop a dress size in time for your cousin’s wedding.

The issue many dieters face is pinpointing their specific areas of weakness in their eating habits.

To the rescue is Whole30, a clean eating program that cuts out the common culprits - dairy, gluten, soy, legumes, alcohol, and sugar - for 30 days.

It’s a bit tricky to follow since so many foods have hidden ingredients, but once you’ve completed the 30 days, you gradually add back these foods to see how your body responds.

Armed with this information, you can shape your meal plans to steer clear of dairy, if it’s making you bloat, gluten if it’s not sitting well with your tummy, or another food that’s causing you to hold onto weight.
