Bad for Your Heart: The Whole 30 Diet

The biggest issue with the Whole 30 diet? It’s a long-time commitment. For 30 days, you must eat exclusively whole foods like vegetables, meat, eggs, fish, some fruit, and some fats from sources like avocado, nuts, and seeds.

As you might have guessed, anything “processed” including grains, dairy products, legumes (like beans and peanuts), sugar, and alcohol is not permitted.

After those hard 30 days, you can slowly re-introduce your favorite foods to see which ones actually cause issues for your overall health. Okay, maybe you’re ambitious, but the restrictive guidelines of the Whole 30 diet cut out many foods that are great for your heart such as kefir, yogurt, whole grains, and legumes.

Eliminating entire food groups such as whole grains isn’t a good idea when it comes to heart health

Here’s typical day on the Whole 30 Diet:

  • Breakfast—Eggs and vegetables cooked in coconut oil.
  • Lunch—Salad with chicken and avocado.
  • Dinner—Steak with a sweet potato and vegetables cooked in coconut oil.
