The Whole30 Program

Anyone see this? Seems like it could just be another online fad diet, but so far I am digging it.

After a few days of trying this, I feel pretty damn good. I can eat a ton of food. I never realized how many calories grains and breads and sugars took up in my diet until I started counting more closely and doing this.

The hardest part about this is working it into a diet for an athlete or someone doing relatively hard workouts daily. You need to eat a lot of food to ensure you're getting enough calories/nutrients.

Pre and post workout snacks/meals are key. They recommend a little bit of protein and fats 15-75 mins before the workout (no fruit or carb dense veggies), then follow up the workout within 15-30 minutes with good protein and carb dense veggies like sweet potato/yams or a few others.

So anyone see this before? It's like a paleo diet, only a bit strict with regards to sugars.
