Wondering what to expect during your Whole30 reset? This Whole30 Timeline Calendar explains the ups and downs of what you’ll experience during a 30 day Whole30 reset!

This whole30 timeline calendar is used to track the average experience of someone going through a Whole 30. Every experience is different! #whole30

Officially, Whole30 is a reset and re-evaluation of your relationship with food. It’s a chance to break unhealthy habits and form new, healthier ones. Whole30 is not a diet; it’s a temporary change in your eating habits that has the potential to last a lifetime!

Starting a reset can be daunting, but don’t worry! This Whole30 Timeline Calendar will help you understand what to expect each week of your reset.

🏁Before Your Whole30

The first week of your Whole30 is all about preparation. You’ll start by decluttering your kitchen and removing any tempting foods that might derail your reset. This is also a good time to start stocking your pantry with Whole30-approved foods.

You’ll also spend this week getting mentally prepared for your reset. This means making a plan for how you will stick to your Whole30 goals. Set yourself up for success by planning meals and snacks, and creating a support system of friends or family who will help you stay on track.

The final step in preparation is to commit to your Whole30 reset. This means giving up all alcohol, sugar, grains, dairy, and legumes for 30 days. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it!

👩🏻‍🍳My Whole30 Experience

1️⃣Week One of Your Whole30

On day one, you’ll probably feel a mix of excitement and trepidation. This is normal! The best way to start your Whole30 is to ease into it. Start with simple meals that you know you’ll enjoy, and be sure to have some snacks on hand in case you get hungry between meals.

On days 2-3 you may feel like you’re having a hangover. This is where the real work begins. This is when you’ll start to feel the effects of sugar and carb withdrawal and the benefits of eating clean.

Day 4-6 is the “Kill All The Things” phase. You’ll likely feel tired and cranky at first, but stick with it! The majority of people feel better by the end of the week. Drink plenty of water and get some rest; your body is going through a lot of changes!

By the end of the week on days 6-7, you may feel like you need a nap. This is normal as your body is adjusting to its new routine learning to live without inflammatory foods.

2️⃣Week Two of Your Whole30

By week two, most people are starting to feel better. The sugar and carb withdrawal symptoms should be gone, and you should be feeling more energetic, but that’s not always the case.

Sometimes during days 8-9 people may feel that they are actually gaining weight. Not to worry, everything is still changing in your body including your microbiome. Water retention also may play a role in this as you introduce new healthy foods.

The hardest days of this challenge tend to be right before you hit the halfway point. This is because the novelty is wearing off and creating healthy habits is hard! But don’t worry, you can do it!

Days 12-13 are typically when people start to feel great! Energy levels are up and cravings are gone. This is the perfect time to increase your exercise routine and push yourself a little bit harder.

At this point in week two, you may find that you are sleeping better and have more stable energy levels throughout the day.

This is a good time to start adding in some light exercise. Nothing too strenuous; just enough to get your body moving and those endorphins flowing! Walking, yoga, and light weightlifting are all great options.

3️⃣Week Three of Your Whole30

By week three, you should be feeling great! The benefits of clean eating should be evident, and you should have plenty of energy to get through your day.

This is a good time to start increasing the intensity of your workouts. If you’ve been walking, try adding in some jogging or running. If you’ve been doing yoga, try adding cardio or weightlifting. Just make sure you listen to your body; if you’re feeling exhausted, take a rest day.

You may also start to see more changes in your body this week. Some people will experience increased digestion and regularity, while others see improved sleep patterns and decreased bloating. These are all great signs that your Whole30 is going well!

4️⃣Week Four of Your Whole30

The final week of your Whole30 is when you’ll start to feel the benefits of eating clean. You should have plenty of energy, and your body should feel great! This is known as the tiger blood stage.

This is a good time to focus on maintaining your new healthy habits. Keep up your exercise routine, and ensure you’re eating plenty of healthy, whole foods. If you slip up, don’t worry! Just get back on track and continue working towards your goals.

Everyone’s experience is different! This is an average of what you can expect on your 30 day reset but is not guaranteed. Please consult with your doctor before starting any new diet or exercise program.
